The unfortunate thing about new technology is that the options are really limited in what Wi-Fi 6 routers you can choose from. However, CES 2019 saw the announcement of quite a few different options and by the end of the year, the market will be practically flooded. If you want to get ahead of the curve and future-proof your home, you would be hard-pressed to look past the Netgear Nighthawk router.
