How to achieve 2400 Mbps on Wi-Fi - and how to set your router to 160Mhz

What the How to achieve 2400 Mbps on Wi-Fi tutorial is about

In the video tutorial How to reach 2400 Mbps on Wi-Fi we will see how the speed of 2400 Mbps can be obtained when using a Wi-Fi 6 AX 3000 router from any manufacturer, but which supports the channel width of 160 Mhz.

What is a Wi-Fi channel?

A WiFi channel is a specific frequency range used by a wireless device to transmit and receive radio signals on a WiFi network. The frequencies used by WiFi channels are between 2,4 GHz and 5 GHz, and they are divided into several subcategories.

For example, the 2,4 GHz frequency range is divided into 14 separate channels, while the 5 GHz frequency range is divided into several wider channels. In general, WiFi channels can be thought of as "traffic lanes" through which wireless data flows between devices connected to the network.

Choosing the right WiFi channel can be important to the performance of your WiFi network. For example, a less congested channel can reduce interference and improve connection speed and stability.

What is Wi-Fi 6

Wi-Fi 6 is the latest wireless networking technology, also known as 802.11ax. It brings significant improvements in speed, capacity and energy efficiency compared to previous Wi-Fi technologies.

The main improvements of Wi-Fi 6 include:

  1. Faster speeds: Wi-Fi 6 can support data transfer speeds of up to 9,6 Gbps, meaning devices connected to the network can communicate faster.
  2. Increased capacity: Wi-Fi 6 can handle multiple users and devices connected to the network simultaneously without affecting network performance.
  3. Better energy efficiency: Wi-Fi 6 uses technologies such as TWT (Target Wake Time) to save power, meaning devices connected to the network can enjoy longer battery life.
  4. Better performance in crowded environments: Wi-Fi 6 uses a technology called MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output), which allows devices to transmit and receive data simultaneously, which improves performance in crowded environments.
  5. Low latency: Wi-Fi 6 uses a technology called OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) that reduces latency and improves network response time.

Overall, Wi-Fi 6 is faster, more efficient, and more powerful than previous Wi-Fi technologies, making it a good choice for users who want superior performance from their wireless network.

What does a 160Mhz Wi-Fi channel mean?

A 160 MHz WiFi channel is a Wi-Fi channel that uses 160 MHz of bandwidth to transmit wireless data. This is the widest bandwidth available for Wi-Fi networks and can only be used on 5 GHz frequencies.

Using a 160 MHz channel can increase the speed of data transfer on your Wi-Fi network, as it can allow larger amounts of data to be transmitted in the same amount of time. However, it is important to keep in mind that using a 160 MHz channel may be more vulnerable to interference from other sources, such as other Wi-Fi networks or devices using the same frequency.

In general, using a 160 MHz channel may be beneficial in certain situations, such as for applications that require the rapid transfer of large files, but may not always be the best choice for all Wi-Fi networks, especially in crowded environments .

What router did I use in the tutorial?

In this video tutorial (How to reach 2400 Mbps on Wi-Fi) I used the Mercusys MR80X router which is a Wi-Fi 6 router of type AX3000

Be careful what you buy, they are Wi-Fi 6 routers that do not support the 160 Mhz channel. Those routers are found under the name of AX1800

Don't forget the wireless network card. And this must support the "fat" channel of 160 Mhz, in order to reach speeds of up to 2400 Mbps. In the tutorial I used a laptop with a network card Intel AX201

How to reach 2400 Mbps on Wi-Fi

To achieve 2400 Mbps speed with a Wi-Fi 6 AX3000 router and a network card that knows how to connect to the 160Mhz channel, you just need to force the router to use the 160Mhz channel.

For a smooth data transfer, it is good to move our channel to a DFS area (on dynamic channels, where it is less crowded.

What is DFS?

DFS is short for "Dynamic Frequency Selection" and is a technology used in Wi-Fi networks that use the 5 GHz frequency band.

DFS technology refers to the ability of a Wi-Fi device to detect and avoid interference with other devices operating in the same 5 GHz frequency band, such as weather radar or other telecommunications devices.

In practice, when a Wi-Fi device detects a radar signal in the 5 GHz frequency band, it will automatically change the channel to avoid interference and ensure a stable and high-quality Wi-Fi connection.

The DFS feature is typically implemented in high-end Wi-Fi routers and access points, which use the 5 GHz frequency band to provide superior performance and greater network capacity.

  1. Hello... can you tell me if the router from digi that I took into custody Tp-link wi-fi 6, AX1500 catches the speed described by you in the tutorial.... Thank you!

  2. You have AX1500
    The one in the article is the AX3000
    You won't catch those speeds.

  3. Thank you...Cristian!
