This setup comes with a 10Gb/s ethernet port for your WAN connectivity as standard, along with a 2.5Gbps LAN port on each router and satellite (you can use this 2.5Gbps port as a wired backhaul for the satellites too). For everything else, you also get three standard 1Gbps ports per device.
2 WIFI 6E
As mentioned, it comes with support for WiFi 6E via a quad-band solution. There are three bands used for your devices across 2.4, 5 and 6GHz, plus an additional “hidden” fourth 5GHz band that is dedicated to providing connectivity between the router and its satellites.

What Is Wi-FI 6E?
If you’re in the market for a new router or any device that uses Wi-Fi, you should first understand the new Wi-Fi 6E standard and what it means for the future of wireless networks at home and in offices around the US. The Wi-Fi Alliance, a group of Wi-Fi platform vendors that work with the FCC and electronics manufacturers to set standards for Wi-Fi technology, announced the Wi-Fi 6E designation in 2020 for any IEEE 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) products that support 6GHz wireless spectrum. Essentially, this means Wi-Fi 6E enables faster speeds and lower latencies than Wi-Fi 6 and earlier iterations.
