Necro abit, while waiting for wifi 7 equipment pricing to drop so i can recon my m1

Meanwhile using i am using 3 nodes of asus ct8 so i am here wondering if buying a xiaomi ax9000 and a pair of the ax3000 will it have “visible” improvement over my current setup and justify the hassle of replacing the whole system for this weird idea of mine to use for a year or 2 for wifi7 pricing to ease off .

its like 300 plus for the whole xiaomi setup from local shoppee .

*Originally ad intended to get some 2nd hand xt8 but each unit also will cost 250-300 already .

Using Ethernet backhaul or wireless backhaul? Asus ZenWiFi CT8 is triband AC mesh solution. It is actually more meant for wireless backhaul application (same for ZenWiFi XT8).

If using Ethernet backhaul, you should get decent upgrade in terms of speed with WiFi 6 clients. If using wireless backhaul, then it will be a bit hard to predict.

You may have to post the floor plan with details of the location of the ONT, LAN ports in the rooms and placement locations of the three mesh nodes.

Thanks. In this case, since you have to use wireless backhaul, I do not think it is a good idea to change to Xiaomi 9000 + two Xiaomi AX3000.

Anyone using the Xiaomi BE10000?

Just buy and share your experiences. It is one of the cheapest 10G capable routers you can buy, with top of the line HW specifications. It is a very good upgrade from Xiaomi 9000.

But if you do not need 10G or do not need triband, then Xiaomi BE7000 is probably a better buy for single router setup.

BTW, for wireless coverage, triband sometimes is worse than dual band. But triband will be better if you need to use wireless backhaul.

You may want to go to the other thread for more info about Xiaomi BE7000 abd BE10000.

I already bought, waiting for it to deliver, im already using AX9000 currently.
Just backside itchy to try how good the upgrade is, i saw that BE10000 can use Docker.

I'm not using wireless backhaul. So far one AX9000 cover my 5room HDB nicely.

aiya just 1 AX9000 as main router will do. the rest of the mesh node can be basic and mid range models

Just asking around?
Is the mihome app the best and preferred way for the Ax9000 router? Or is there away to refresh or what not.


What happened was for these few days i checked on the status of the devices on the network.
Some are not updated while some device like my iphone , can see i using data and when i am using how much i used and what not. Like my kids phone the status stuck on 1 week back.
