Asus whole home WiFi products - Tested and Compared

Prices last updated 13 December 2017 2:00 AM PST

Whole home WiFi (WHOW) speed is critical for today's smart homes. You must have fast Internet speeds everywhere in your home where there's some device using WiFi - such as your smart TV, WiFi camera, smart thermostat or WiFi light switches - not just next to your router. We want to help you make the right choice of the best WiFi solution for your home. We test WHOW products in our lab and publish our test results. Learn about our testing here.
