Linksys Hydra Pro 6 Review

Linksys Hydra Pro 6: Two Minute Review

It’s taken a while for the prices of Wi-Fi 6 routers to drop to more affordable levels, but Linksys’ new Hydra Pro 6 is a good option for anyone looking to improve their home Wi-Fi without taking out a second mortgage. It’s admittedly still a bit pricey for a dual-band router, but it works hard to make a living.

The top speed of 5.4 Gbps is still much faster than most routers that use the older Wi-Fi 5 standard (also known as 802.11ac), while also offering additional benefits of Wi-Fi 6, such as improved efficiency at sending data to many different devices on your network at the same time.
