I am thinking of installing a WiFi 6 mesh system.  With the new direct to WiFi Arlio 4, I'm hoping to get better speed than with a hub.  In theory WiFi 6 should be faster than WiFi 5, although WiFi 5 might still be an improvement over a hub connection.  Does anyone know what WiFi is supported by the Pro 4?  A related question is, does it use 2.4 Ghz or 5 Ghz or either?

It uses 2.4 ghz only, and doesn't use WiFi-6.

 

Bandwidth requirements are fairly modest (2 megabits of throughput).  So in general, achieving solid connectivity should be the main goal.

I just switched to Wifi-6 and it works great! That’s in terms of a much better abd stronger connection. Not speed. Still have same lag time ... 15”!
