Nighthawk Ax11000 (rax200) or Ax6000 (Rax120) or different company

So debating which should I go with the Ax11000 or the Ax6000 Rax120 different company like Asus, TP-LINK —I’m looking for something future proof multi-gig ( aggregation link )  I recently upgraded my Internet gigabyte speed (using Xfinity xb6 at the moment) and I brought a cable modem the cm1200 ( since I have problems with the Orbi CBK 40 defected puma intel chipset   Which Netgear doesn’t want to take ownership on mind you the router it’s still under hardware warranty spent 12 hours on the phone with them last Saturday just to find out they close my case so I’m pissed off there Major major insecurity issues with that modem ).  My understanding is Rax120 has a faster processor and it covers a larger range and the Multi-Gig LAN port which can connect at up to 5Gbps. Also, I have on the way  GS810EMX On way since my household has many gaming devices so I want to avoid lagging hopefully get speeds over 1gb and I will be adding a ReadyNas. Far as devices I would say 25-30 connected. Few thing I don’t like is there is no mesh with those routers, or security protection which I currently have armor and only a year warranty and 90day phone support so far the support has been horrible with Netgear and I own a ton of products with this company business and consumer so this may be my last time dealing with Netgear. So should I go with one of those routers or consider something else like others said Asus, TP-LINK which offer more features and longer warranty like the Asus ax11000, ASUS ZenWiFi AX Whole-Home Tri-Band Mesh WiFi 6, TP Archer AX11000, Archer AX6000

AX technology seems to be "work in progress".


I'd check the user forums of these devices before taking the plunge.

Paradoxically, you can attach images to messages without any delay.

Just another user.
