Elevate Your Home WiFi Experience

Imagine a home where every device connects seamlessly, where lag and buffering are things of the past, and where you have the power to manage your network with unparalleled ease.

The Power of Wave 2 Technology

At the heart of the Luxul WS-260 system lies the cutting-edge 802.11ac Wave 2 technology, featuring:

  • Dual-Band Wireless AC3100 Gigabit Router
  • XAP-1610 Apex Wave 2 AC3100 Access Point

This dynamic duo works in concert to provide up to an astonishing 3100 Mbps wireless speed. Wave 2 technology isn't just about raw speed; it's about efficiency. With 4x4 Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) support, multiple devices can stream, game, and download simultaneously without stepping on each other's toes.
