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.
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).
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.
A Closer Look at the Xiaomi AX9000
Xiaomi also incorporated a quite massive heat sink unit which covers the router PCB. Above it Xiaomi also added a blower to dissipate excessive heat.
The AX9000 comes in Dimensions of 270 × 270 × 174mm. Compared to the previous AX6000 with a width of 408mm, it is still quite large in size, and can be positioned on a table without taking up too much space.
The AX9000 router uses Qualcomm’s IPQ8072 chip, which comes with a 4-core Cortex-A53 processor running at 2.0GHz and a pair of dedicated 1.7GHz NPU cores, along with 1GB of memory. The router has 2.5 GbE dedicated LAN ports, 2 of which can also be configured as a WAN, and one that also supports the faster 2.5GbE standard. In addition, the router combines a USB 3.0 connection that allows a storage device to be connected to the router in order to be used as a NAS device for storing information on the network.
2.5 Gigabit Ethernet compliant
Another great advantage is the option to use a 2.5 Gigabit LAN ,that most users would find it usable especially for high speed fiber internet connection. Although, it would be much nicer if Xiaomi would also add an additional 2.5Gbps LAN port for a wired cable connection, but nerveless is better to have one than none.
Price & availability
The Xiaomi Router AX6000 comes in Black color, priced at 999 yuan (US$ 152), available to order and goes on sale in China starting from April.
