Designs like these remind me of why Apple needs to get back into the router business.

What’s with these routers being so expensive. Are they using titanium material or what. I don’t understand.

You can buy an enterprise grade access point for less than the cost of these ridiculous looking things.

Wow, not even wifi 6e? Wifi 6 is so overpriced, and it doesn’t seem to be getting better. I bought an ax11000 when it first came out, came out to around 320 dollars, after a rebate for returning a broken apple AirPort Express (type g!). Now, I can’t remember, 2 or 3 years later, you get a bottom of the line router for 300?
