[secret review] nowadays, WiFi network has become an inaccessible part of our life, whether for work or entertainment, can not be separated from the support of WiFi network. With the increase of broadband speed and reduction of charges, we can enjoy faster and more stable Internet speeds at lower prices. However, in daily life, the home secretary found such a problem, although the broadband speed of many families has been raised, but still use the old routers before, these routers can not play the full speed of broadband.

At the same time, with more and more smart home products connected to the WiFi network, the original router can not load so many products. As a result, the router becomes hot, restarts frequently, and the experience becomes even worse. The era of the Internet of everything in the smart home is coming, and it's time to replace a WiFi 6 router for your home., Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 would be a good choice.

If a building is used to describe the shape of the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600, then the pyramid is perfect. The main body of the router adopts a wedge-shaped design, and the surface of the fuselage is treated with frosted material, which reflects an advanced sense in the light. The bottom is solid, so that the router can be placed smoothly on the shelves, TV cabinets and computer desks at home. From the bottom to the top, the lines gradually contract so that the lines on the left and right sides converge at the top. There are also three grid panels at the top, with black on the left and right sides and copper yellow in the middle. The grid plate runs through the entire router, which plays the role of the finishing touch.

Most of the routers used in daily homes are three-antenna or four-antenna, and there are seven external antennas on the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600. The antenna is consistent with the router body in appearance design, and the most central antenna is also equipped with an atmosphere lamp. These seven external antennas are one independent IoT equipment antenna, two 2.4GHz antennas and four 5GHz antennas. Through this design, we can ensure a wider signal coverage and further enhance the performance of the router through the wall.

Qualcomm Quad Core SoC creates extreme performance experience for routers.

When we choose computers and smartphones, we usually distinguish the difference in performance according to the number of cores of processors. Generally speaking, the more cores, the stronger the performance. Most of the routers used in daily homes use single-core or dual-core processors, while the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 carries Qualcomm IPQ8071A chip, 4-core A53 architecture, 1GHz clock rate, and dual-core network acceleration engine chip. Compared with 128MB-only routers on the market, this product also has a huge amount of 512MB memory. This configuration enables the router to connect more devices and make it more playable.

In addition to the Qualcomm IPQ8071A main chip, the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi chip of the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 supports 4x4MIMO and 802.11ax for QCN5024, 5GHz Wi-Fi chip for QCN5054, AIoT antenna part for QCA9889 SoC, these chips are the current high-end brand thousand yuan price e-sports router will use the configuration.

In order to bring users a better experience, the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 is equipped with six high-performance signal amplifiers, including 2 external high-performance signal amplifiers in 2.4GHz band and 4 external high-performance signal amplifiers in 5GHz band (PA power amplifier + LNA low noise amplifier). The power amplifier can effectively enhance the transmission power of the signal and make the signal transmit farther. The low noise amplifier is used to improve the sensitivity of signal reception so that the router can receive weaker signals.

More importantly, the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 is a WiFi 6 router. WiFi 6 is the latest network protocol standard released by the WiFi Alliance, and the standard code is 802.11ax. In terms of a frequency band, WiFi 6 covers 2.4GHz and 5GHz, perfectly covering low-speed and high-speed equipment and modulation modes. WiFi 6 supports 1024m QAM, which is higher than 256m QAM of WiFi 5, with higher data capacity and faster data transmission speed. At the same time, a new OFDMA technology is added to support multiple terminals to transmit in parallel at the same time. It can be said that the emergence of WiFi 6 not only increases the upload and download rate, but also allows more devices to connect to the network, and greatly improves network congestion.


Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 provides both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, both of which support 11ax technology. According to official data, the theoretical rate of Wi-Fi 6 AX3600 is 155% higher than that of Wi-Fi 5 AC1200. In the era of the Internet of everything, WiFi 6 can significantly reduce data latency and stutter when multiple devices are connected at the same time.

Create the ultimate speed experience based on WiFi 6.

After the house secretary changed the broadband at home to 500 megabytes of fiber, he felt that the router became very difficult to face with 500 megabytes of fiber. After replacing the router with Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600, both the network speed and experience were significantly improved. First of all, in terms of network speed, using SpeedTest test found that the router download speed of 410Mbps, upload speed of 37.4Mbps. The Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 has a download speed of 615Mbps and an upload speed of 42.8Mbps.
