As part of an ongoing WiFi investigation we’ve tested three of the latest routers from Netgear, Linksys and D-Link. All of them use the latest, speedy MU-MIMO technology which keeps fast devices running fast even if there are slow devices on the same network. The trouble is, you need a MU-MIMO-compatible adapter in your mobile device to make it work and most laptops and tablets don’t have that.
We’ve spent the week testing three of the latest MU-MIMO routers: Netgear’s Nighthawk X8, D-Link’s DIR-895L and Linksys EA9500. While our results resemble a group test (which will be forthcoming) this article focuses on the benefits of the latest MU-MIMO technology in an effort to see if it makes a big difference.
