R7000 wifi 6

On the documantation it says it supports WIFI 6 but it is wifi 5. With the router being the beginning of the WIFI line how is that even possable since it dosnt need WIFI it gives it. It ether has it or it dosn't, as far as I am aware any WIFI divices after the router would need to support it?

Difference between ipv6 and wireless? 

Wireless is a wireless broadcast standard. 

IPv6 and IPv4 are the protocol the lets machines communicate with each other. Like going from computer--->router---->modem----->isp----->website----->etc. 

I linked to the wikipedia listing so you can learn  more about ipv6 if interested.

The R7000 is an old router and certainly doesn't support WiFi 6. Only the new RAX models do

Your screen print was a bit blury. looks like you highlighted of the product data sheet. if i pull that up, its highlighing IPv6. 

Thats not a wifi standard. Its a communication protocol.
