Would Wi-Fi 6 and WPA-3 work on a Netgear WAX206? Any better recommendations?

You should know that the MT7915 AX wireless controller of Netgear WAX206 and other devices currently is affected by a severe upload speed degradation in AX mode with AX compatible Apple iOS or iPadOS devices:

If you would like to use AX compatible Apple iPhones or iPads in your OpenWrt WAX206 wireless network I would limit the 5 GHz wireless mode to AC. Then you get full speed.

So, with Apple wireless devices this is a stable and well supported AC router.

I would still buy my comparable Linksys E8450 again, but I can’t use it with OpenWrt as intended because I want to use Apple AX compatible iOS devices with it. It’s a nice AC router for me.
