The Mi Wifi router has 1Gbps WAN port and the mini router has FE (100Mbps) WAN port.

based on the specs on Xiaomi's official chinese website, the Xiaomi Mi Wi-Fi Mini can go up to 300Mbps on 2.4GHz wifi and up to 867Mbps on 5GHz wifi.

but then the spec also states that the mini router only has 2 x 10/100 LAN ports and 1 x 10/100 WAN ports. so isn't mini router's max throughput bottlenecked at 100Mbps?

so like that how is the mini router going to achieve 300Mbps on 2.4GHz wifi and 867Mbps on 5GHz wifi?

xiaomi market the mini router as AC1167 when in reality it is effectively only AC200.

The figures are highest it can achieve. But in real life, under the normal setup, you should be very happy if you can get 100Mbps on wireless.

Hi i stay in a new 5room bto flat and currently using the singtel 2wire router provided. Am only on 6mbps old contract and due to jump ship to M1 fiber in Janurary. Not able to receive wifi signal in the masterbed room. Was thinking of getting this modem, since it has AC band, would it increase my wifi coverage in the bedroom? How can i configure it to still use miovoice over the current 2wire modem?

new bto flats come with cat6 cable at all tel point, just change the wall plate to rj45 and you can link singtel router to bedroom using cat6 cable.
