Wifi 6 is just starting to arrive this year, and there’s a good chance it’ll be inside your next phone or laptop. The all-new KX450 AX1800 Smart Wi-Fi 6 Router is the latest router from Speedy. This wireless router is built with speed in mind and is equipped with just about anything that you need from a Wi-Fi router. Whether you’re a gamer or you’re working from home, the Speedefy KX450 will get the job done.
This router lets you download at up to 1,800 Mbps across its dual-band frequency. The router’s speed is split up between a 5 GHz frequency capable of speeds up to 1,201 Mbps and a 2.4 GHz frequency with speeds up to 574 Mbps. The router is also equipped with next-gen Wi-Fi 6 technology allowing for greater speeds across a larger number of devices simultaneously.
A Brand New Starting
Faster internet is constantly in demand, especially as we consume more bandwidth-demanding apps, games, and videos with our laptops and phones. But the next generation of Wi-Fi, now wifi 6, isn’t just a simple speed boost. Its impact will be more nuanced, and we’re likely to see its benefits more and more over time. This is less of a one-time speed increase and more of a future-facing upgrade designed to make sure our speeds don’t grind to a halt a few years down the road. Here’s what you should expect once it arrives.
Apple’s contribution to this
Apple recently added several new products and accessories to its online store, including the Linksys Velop AX4200 mesh Wi-Fi 6 system, with one node priced at $249.95, a two-pack priced at $399.95, and a three-pack priced at $499.95.
Mesh technology offers whole-home Wi-Fi coverage that is easily expandable by adding additional nodes, with Wi-Fi 6 offering faster speeds with lower latency compared to Wi-Fi 5, which was previously known as 802.11ac. Home Kit support, which rolled out with software last week, allows the AX4200 nodes to be managed through the Home app on iPhone, iPad, and Mac, complete with improved network security options.
Apple iPad Air
Apple is also now selling ipad Air, with key features including Smart Connector pairing, an adjustable kickstand, auto-adjusting backlit keys, and a cut out for charging the second-generation Apple Pencil without removing the case. The keyboard is available in grey for $199.95.
Nanoleaf, known for its range of smart lighting panels, recently launched new HomeKit-enabled hexagon lights with a wood grain veneer designed to offer a more natural lighting experience that blends in better with home decor and creates a cosy ambience in the room. Apple is now carrying these lights for $299.95.

Linksys adds Home Kit with Wi-Fi 6
Linksys is bringing Home Kit Secure Router support to one of its best mesh WiFi systems. The company announced earlier today that. The Linksys Velop AX4200 WiFi 6 System, also known as the Linksys Atlas Pro 6 Tri-band, now supports Apple HomeKit. This means that owners of the router can add it to their homes in the Home app.
Linksys Velop WiFi 6 Whole Home Mesh System delivers next-level streaming. And, gaming to more than 120 devices on your network. It offers a reliable connection for everyone to stream, game, and video chats without interruption. Intelligent Mesh™ Technology offers whole-home coverage that’s easily expandable by adding additional Linksys Intelligent Mesh products. With easy set-up, advanced security and parental controls, MX12600 is an essential upgrade to any home.
Check out the full list of features of the Linksys Velop AX4200 WiFi 6 System below:
- WiFi 6 means higher speeds and 4x more capacity for more devices simultaneously connected
- Intelligent Mesh™ technology is designed to deliver gigabit WiFi speeds to cover every corner of your home
- Easy set up and control through the free Linksys app
- Parental controls to protect kids online
- 1.4 GHz quad-core processor for smooth video calls, streaming, and gaming
- Works with Apple HomeKit
Apple set up some pretty cool functionality for routers added to the Home app. Not only are you able to access certain controls for the router itself. But, a router set up with HomeKit sandboxes all connections inside your home. This ensures that, even if one device is compromised on your network, all of your other devices will stay protected.
HomeKit restrictions in the Home app include:
- Restrict to Home: Only allow connections to your home hub. This may block firmware updates or other services.
- Automatic: Allow connections with an automatically-updated list of manufacturer-approved internet services and local devices.
- No Restriction: Allow connections with any internet service or local device. This provides the lowest level of security.
Linksys Velop WiFi 6 System can download a free update to add their router to the Home app now.
