My home internet was too slow, so I changed the internet carrier and changed the router. I haven't been in Seoul for a long time, so I was using an ipTIME N100M that only supports 2.4Gz, which I used a long time ago for 604 megabytes.
The speed is between 2MB and 18MB, but when it rains, it doesn't even come up to 2MB. get upset slower than cell phones.
Recently, it was too slow, so I changed to KT Internet which supports synchronization.
I changed the router first before changing the carrier. While changing the router to Wi-Fi 6th generation, we compared the 4th and 6th generation of Wi-Fi, and measured the speed with M6 MacBook Air supporting Wi-Fi 1th generation and iPhone X supporting 5th generation.
Wi-Fi 6 DescriptionAccording to Wi-Fi, the speed is faster and latency is reduced by up to 5% compared to the 75th generation of Wi-Fi. WiFi 6 handles up to 9.6 Gbps and Wi-Fi 5 handles 3.5 Gbps.
It can distribute well among multiple devices and speed up specific devices.
In general, it is said that a Wi-Fi 500 router is meaningful only when the Internet product is about 1 mega or 6 gigabyte.
I can distinguish the generations behind 802, but I found out for the first time whether it was the 4th generation Wi-Fi in the Seoul house and the 5th generation in the Jeju house.
wifi 6 router
Because it uses a 100 mega product, it is the 4th generation of Wi-Fi. ipTIME N604M It is also possible, and if you use a USB external hard drive, the 5th generation ipTIME A2004MU It seems great enough
However, since my M1 MacBook Air supports Wi-Fi 6, I thought it would be more stable and faster even if it was a 100-sheet product, so I decided to try the cheaper model that supports Wi-Fi 6.
Below is a capture from the video. ipTIME AX2003MThe CPU is weak with MediaTek 880MHz, but the price is good.
For more details, please refer to the video below.
This seems to be a decent price, except for the chip, among other routers that support Wi-Fi 6.
There is also an ipTIME that can be relayed, so I decided to use the familiar ipTIME to configure a mashup and update the firmware quickly if necessary.
4G vs. router on the same carrier. Speed difference between 5th generation and WiFi 6 supported terminals
The Internet makes a difference between uploading and downloading depending on whether it is symmetrical or asymmetrical when it comes to your home.
But this time I changed the router, and it made a huge difference. I didn't do this every time I changed the router, but I bought a router that supports Wi-Fi 1 and M6 MacBook Air supports Wi-Fi 6 and tested it.
I measured the speed before and after changing the router.
The difference between the 4G and 6G Wi-Fi sharing period was large, and the difference between the 6G supported terminals was not large.
I've tried it a few times and the difference between the routers is surprisingly large. I didn't know it was a Wi-Fi 4th generation router and was using it!
Latency is short for M6 MacBook Air that supports Wi-Fi 1
There was no significant difference in download proficiency between the M6 MacBook Air with Wi-Fi 1 support and the iPhone X without it, but the latency of the M1 MacBook Air was shorter.
M1 MacBook Air Latency: 12.4ms
iPhone X Latency: 25.9ms
It is said that the Wi-Fi 6 router distributes well when there are many smart devices or iot devices, and uses resources by concentrating on devices that require high speed such as smartphones and MacBooks, and supports low power or low speed for devices that do not.
M1 MacBook Air supports Wi-Fi 6, so I don't know if the delay time is shorter because I can tell the router that supports Wi-Fi 6 to send it to me quickly.
Speed measurement is to measure the amount of time requested and received at one time. In actual use, unless you are streaming like YouTube, you often change the browser page. Therefore, since the Wi-Fi 6 router and the terminal supporting Wi-Fi 6 have a relatively short delay time, the speed seems to be a little faster in actual use. Still, I don't think it's to the point where I can feel it very seriously.
Wi-Fi 6 router * Wi-Fi terminal (M1 MacBook Air) does not seem to be very fast
It's not an exact experiment, it's just a few measurements of speed, so it's not an accurate result. And the subjective speed difference used as a sensation other than just measuring speed is not very big.
Since it's streaming at YouTube speed, there's not much difference, but Internet radio doesn't stop and it feels a bit fast when changing pages. There are fewer than 10 devices in the house and devices that support Wi-Fi 6 M1 MacBook Air There seems to be no environment in which Wi-Fi 6 can work well.
