The days of confusing alphanumeric version markers are over. WiFi Alliance, the global consortium that sets wireless standards, is ditching its traditional naming convention for Wifi versions.
As usual, the latest Wi-Fi standard offers faster data transfer speeds. If you’re using a Wi-Fi router with a single device, maximum potential speeds should be up to 40% higher with Wi-Fi 6 compared to Wi-Fi 5.
Key benefits of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 technology include:
Higher data rates
Performance in environments with many connected devices
Improved power efficiency
This article would guide you through how you can check the WiFi version your Windows 10 PC supports.
Check Wi-Fi version on Windows 10
