Review: Wave 2 Wi-Fi delivers dramatic performance boost for home networks

David Newman | May 17, 2016
Mention "home Wi-Fi router" and you’ll probably think of a cheap device with cruddy performance. But dramatic changes are coming, with big boosts in bandwidth, thanks to two new Wi-Fi technologies.

So, can beamforming and MU-MIMO help you? The answer is "yes, for sure" if you're in one of three categories:

  • if you've got devices 2 years old or newer, beamforming can help
  • if you've got distance issues, beamforming and MU-MIMO can help
  • if you've got multiple devices, MU-MIMO can help

In all these cases, we saw significant improvements using MU-MIMO and beamforming technology in the Linksys EA7500 Wi-Fi router.
