Tenda F6 Wireless N300 Router Review: Basic Router And Repeater

 

An average broadband connection speed in India is around 35Mbps and buying an expensive router does not make sense at all. I have been testing, Tenda's newly launched entry-level 2.4GHz router -- the Tenda F6 Wireless N300. The router is currently available on Amazon and it costs Rs. 1,378, which makes it a great entry-level router. Here is the full review of the Tenda F6 Wireless N300 router.

Tenda F6 Wireless N300 Router Design And Formfactor

The Tenda F6 Wireless N300 Router comes in white color with four replaceable 5dBi High Gain Omni-Directional antennas. This is a compact lightweight router that just has a single blue LED at the top.

On the back, the router has a total of four RJ-45 ports, out of which, one is a WAN port and the remaining are LAN ports. This enables users to hard-connect a smart television, laptop, and a desktop computer directly to the internet.

As the router is white in color, it might get a bit dirty if it is not properly maintained. The overall design of the router is very pleasing and for the asking price, it does seem like a nice product.

 Tenda F6 Wireless N300 Router Performance

Tenda F6 Wireless N300 Router Performance

As mentioned before, the Tenda F6 Wireless N300 Router is a single channel 2.4GHz Wi-Fi router, which prioritizes range over peak internet speed. As mentioned on the name itself, the router can handle up to 300Mbps of peak speed, which should suffice for most users.

The company claims that the router can handle up to 12 devices at the same time. However, in a real-life scenario, we found out that anything over three or four devices (with active internet usage) will consume the bandwidth.

When I was sitting beside the router, I was getting a higher download speed of 51.7Mbps and an upload speed of 40.4Mbps with a good amount of range. When I moved from one corner of the office to another corner, the signal did drop by 15 percent and there was a noticeable difference in both download and upload speeds.

In the last test, I took my phone to a cafeteria (with a lot of obstacles between the router and the phone) the signal strength dropped to 56 percent and both download and upload speeds took a bad hit, both going below 10Mbps. I was not surprised by this, as even some of the high-end routers offered similar performance.

Overall, the router seems to offer a stable internet connection without any issue. However, if your home/office has multiple rooms, then this router might not be able to office consistent internet speed across the place.

One of the unique features of the Tenda F6 Wireless N300 Router is that it can also act as a Wi-Fi repeater. If you have multiple rooms, then the Tenda F6 Wireless N300 Router can be used as a repeater by configuring it using the IP address.

The Tenda F6 Wireless N300 Router can be used as a repeater with a third-party router and it works without any issue. As said before, even as a repeater, it only works on the 2.4GHz channel.
