    Hi @Pedro
    WiFi 6 devices are currently being developed, but there is no release date set for them yet.

    When they're announced, they'll go through a beta process before they're released, so if you're interested, I'd suggest joining the beta community at watchguard.centercode.com.

  • Almost a year later and still nothing? Most of the requests we get are for WiFi 6 AP's - which means we have to sell them Merakis instead of Watchguards.......

    Hi @mgbsystems
    There will be a WiFi 6 product coming soon. WathGuard is focused on having a stable supported release. Many of the vendors that released WiFi 6 APs early did so under draft standards.

  • Is there an ETA of wifi-6 device availablity?

  • Do you have an eta on this?

    Hi @rblack @Gopher
    There is not currently an ETA for this. Products are currently being developed, and will be announced via sales/partner channels when they are finalized.

  • Next month will be two years since initial certification. Not a good look to be announcing the lack of an ETA, even with COVID.
