Acer has announced the expansion of its wireless router portfolio with two new models tailored for gamers, families, and remote workers. The new lineup includes the Acer Wave 7, which leverages the cutting-edge Wi-Fi 7 technology to provide extensive, reliable coverage for large homes with numerous devices, and the Predator Connect W6x, which utilizes Wi-Fi 6 to prioritize speed and performance for seamless online gaming experiences.

The W6x features dual-band connectivity, operating on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies to ensure robust and consistent signals throughout the home. The Wave 7 takes it a step further with support for up to 6 GHz on Wi-Fi 7, enhancing performance and coverage. Both routers are equipped with Hybrid Quality of Service (QoS) software and the Intel Killer Prioritization Engine, which work together to identify and prioritize essential network traffic, maximizing speed and minimizing lag. User-friendly interfaces make setup and management straightforward, and built-in Trend Micro Home Network Security protects the network and connected devices from potential threats.

“We are excited to expand our wireless router offerings with new options that cater to a wide range of gamers, families, and home-based professionals,” said Wayne Ma, General Manager, Connectivity, Acer Inc. “These routers leverage the latest Wi-Fi technologies to deliver seamless connectivity and come with practical features that ensure ease of use while prioritizing network privacy and security.”

The Wave 7 also features three Gigabit Ethernet ports with switchable WAN/LAN capability for flexible network configuration and built-in Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security for added peace of mind. The Wave 7 offers single, double, and triple-pack options for added flexibility and coverage when building network systems.
