The Linksys Hydra Pro 6 supports more than 30 devices per node and offers 2700 square feet of coverage, so it's able to cover even larger homes. Intelligent Mesh technology allows for whole home mesh WiFi coverage that can be expanded by adding additional nodes.

It supports wireless speeds of up to 5.4Gb/s for seamless video streaming, fast downloads, and more, plus it works with Qualcomm's Immersive Home 216 Platform and has access to the 160MHz channel for true WiFi 6 connectivity.

With the Linksys app, Hydra Pro 6 owners can view and prioritize devices, plus there's support for WPA3/WPA2-Personal encryption and SPI firewall, automatic security updates, parental controls, and a separate guest network.

The Hydra Pro 6 can be purchased from the Linksys website starting today.

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?
