What’s New?

The AX9000 comes as Xiaomi’s fourth Wi-Fi 6 router and joins the company’s AX1800, AX3600 and AX6000 models, with support for Mesh technology that lets you connect multiple routers to create a unified Wi-Fi network. The router shares some of the features of the AX6000 model, including 4K QAM, which offers a 20% speed improvement over the previous generation, increased bandwidth 4×4 160MHz and more.


Mesh Networking

As with all Xiaomi’s routers, the AX9000 router also supports mesh networking, so it can be used to connect and expand coverage area with other Xiaomi Wi-Fi 6 series routers (AX1800, AX3600 and AX6000).


Design

The external pyramid design is very similar to those of the AX6000 Next-Gen Wi-Fi Router and the ASUS ROG Rapture gaming tri-band router series. The router pyramid design features 4 large triangular antennas containing 3 internal antennas that support 2.4GHz, 5.2GHz and 5.8GHz frequencies, allowing you to create 3 separate networks up to 1148 Mbps, 4804 Mbps and 240 Mbps, respectively. For external appearance improvement Xiaomi also added configurable RGB light with different visual effects. Finally, Xiaomi also added a USB 3.0 Host port, something that didn’t exist in previous models so you can connect an external hard drive and share your media files over the internet or local network.
