TP-Link Unveils the World’s 1st Complete Wi-Fi 7 Networking Solution for Homes and Businesses


Product availability for US market:

Archer BE900 -- BE24000 Quad-band Wi-Fi 7 router -- $699.99
Deco BE85--BE22000 Tri-band Mesh Wi-Fi 7 System-- $999.99 (2 pack)
Deco BE95 -- BE33000 Quad-band Mesh Wi-Fi 7 System -- $1199.99 (2 pack)

The three above products will be available for pre-order on 12/31/2022 and will ship in Q1, 2023. Additional products will become available throughout Q1 and Q2 2023.

The new Deco systems are powered by Qualcomm’s Networking Pro chipset platform for Wi-Fi 7.

The BE900 can support WiFi speeds of up to 24Gbps, which is less than the theoretical 40Gbps Plus speeds of Wi-Fi 7, but is still more than twice as fast as the previous Archer Wi-Fi Company’s 6E router.

• 6 GHz: 11520 Mbps (802.11be)

Qualcomm IPQ9574 with QCN9274 and ath12k? :slight_smile:

Honestly I have no clue didn't find any information about the SoC/Chipset/Wifi chips what these routers have. Could you provide a link? So I could remove that guess in the first post?

EDIT: Found a hint here:

It was just my guess, but there is at least one more:

Here we go again with pre-ratification devices that might not be fully compatible with the final specification. :frowning:

I wouldn't expect any WiFi 7 client adapters until next year, so it would be rather jumping the gun to buy one of these. Utterly dumb behaviour from the industry as usual, just so they can claim "first" and sucker people into buying a potentially worthless upgrade from what they have now.

Cool. Unfortunately clients are not really keen on keeping up...even my pricey iPhone 13 or M1 Airbook only sports 2x2 802.11ax :frowning: And then we need to update all the backend...currently, going from 1Gbit to 2.5Gbit is pricey...

But I suppose you need to start somewhere.

Who cares about clients, I want two 802.11be devices for wifi backhaul.


Totally agree. Clients on a mobile network do not have to match the capabilities of the transmitting tower.
