Best Unifi Router with WiFi 6 in 2022

Unifi Router Buyer's Guide in 2021

If you use Unifi at your home, you are probably not so happy with the speed and stability of the WiFi network. That’s because TM is still a business and they cannot give an expensive router while remain profitable. But, luckily, TM doesn’t stop you from buying your own router.

While the router provided by TM isn’t too bad, they have slower CPU and weaker WiFi coverage. This means they aren’t very good if you stay in a bigger home or if you have more WiFi devices at home. Thus, in this article, I will show you some WiFi routers that I’ve tested that will recommend for you to upgrade your home WiFi router.

Unifi Fibre Equipment Overview

All Unifi Fibre installation come with 2 devices which is the fibre modem and WiFi router. The Fibre modem comes with lifetime warranty from TM and it is non-user replaceable. But, don’t worry as the WiFi router rarely breaks down and it performs well. What we will be focussing is the WiFi router part which will impact all your home networking performance.

Unifi Router Brands

Once you purchased the new router, please request your Unifi login ID and Password from TM. You will need them when configuring your new router. Once you got everything ready, remove your old wireless router and connect the new router to the ONU. You have to reconfigure your new wireless router. The process depends on the brand of the router but generally, you just need to insert the PPPOE ID and password and select the Unifi profile on the router. 

TP-Link Unifi Router


TP-Link routers are fully compatible with Unifi. TP-Link offers really good value for money as their routers are usually cheaper while delivering the same level of performance compared to their competitors. They offer a 3 years warranty on all their networking products.

I would like to ask a question: Often times when I am downloading full speed using UniFi 30Mbps, after a while the Internet will disconnect and my TM TRG212M stock router will get a new IP and I am unable to access Internet for a while. When the Internet is in the midst of disconnection, I could not immediately access the router web interface. Is this the symptom showing that the router hangs?

Hi there. Please help. My unify modem located on 3rd floor. Which means the ground floor can’t get the wifi signal. What should I do to make every floor have good coverage of wifi. Landed house 3 floor, 6 rooms. Unify 30. Need to connect with 10 iPad iPhone. 2 laptop 1 desktop. Should I buy a router? If yes, what brand?

Hi sir, I’m living in a flat which is only around 700sqft…. I wanted to upgrade the router as well and mainly is for entertaining purpose… Is RT-N12Hp enough for me or RT-n14 is more suitable ? Any advise ? *using unifi 30mbps

“Instead of 1 router, get a few powerline wireless extender. If your budget only allow you to get a router, RT-N14UHP is a good choice.”

What is power line wireless extender?? Can just buy a router to boost up the connection. I m just a basic user and subscribed to 5mbps unifi but could not stable connection while using my laptop on 1st floor. Pls advice. Thanks so much.
