This router sports four high-gain omidirectional antennas for wide range. It’s powered by a dual-core CPU and comes with 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports; one WAN port and two LAN ports. This an upgrade from its predecessor which had four 10/100Mbs ports. If you have fast Fiber internet connection to your home or office, this router matches up with your internet link instead of slowing it down.
The router is dual-band 802.11 AC WiFi router supporting both 2.4GHz and 5GHzand with total speeds of up 1,167Mbps ideal for streaming, gaming, downloading heavy files. It supports WiFi smart connect which ensures that you don’t have to switch between two bands manually. It automatically selects the best band for the best experience. Personally I prefer separating 2.4 and 5GHz bands with separate WiFi SSIDs such that I can choice which devices connect to a specific band.
The Mi Router 4A Gigabit edition supports upto a whooping 128 devices. Most WiFi routers I know can ably connect up to a maximum of 32 devices, so I will take this claim with a grain of salt. Still with that number of devices, you can connect Smarthome devices, smart TV, smart speakers, bulbs, TV, smartphone, laptops and more to the same WiFi network.
