AmpliFi Alien: The Router That’s Out of This World

Written by Team Pentanet

If you’re looking to upgrade to a no-compromise Wi-Fi 6 router capable of increasing your network capacity by 4x and boosting your coverage by 2x, look no further than the AmpliFi Alien.

Benefits of WiFi 6 include:

  • Better network efficiency
  • Faster speeds
  • More network capacity
  • Less network interference
  • Better battery life on connected devices
  • A sleek design with inbuilt lighting (AmpliFi Alien has a green glow by default because, you know… it’s an Alien)

In English, this means the AmpiFi Alien is able to distribute your Wi-Fi signal much farther and with significantly higher speeds than lower-end routers. The old rules still apply with AmpliFi Alien - you’ll experience noticeably faster wireless speeds if you’re in the same room as your router, but the massive increase in coverage and capacity that AmpliFi Alien offers is a gamechanger for households who require high-speed wireless internet access in multiple rooms throughout the house.

If you’re on a fast internet plan but still experience buffering when everyone in your house is streaming their favourite shows or playing online games at night, it could be time to consider a more powerful router.

The elegantly designed AmpliFi Alien includes:

  • Wi-Fi 6 performance
  • 5 GHz 8x8 Wi-Fi 6 radio (Max speed 4804 Mbps)
  • 2.4 GHz 4x4 Wi-Fi 6 radio (Max speed 1148 Mbps)
  • 5 GHz 4x4 Wi-Fi 5 radio (Max speed 1733 Mbps)
  • 4-Port Gigabit Ethernet switch
  • Touchscreen display
  • AmpliFi Teleport configuration-free VPN solution

Setting up the AmpliFi Alien is extremely easy, follow the simple instructions in the box to plug in the router based on your connection type, and download the user-friendly AmpliFi Wi-Fi app to start managing your connection.

The app allows you to run speed tests, adjust your network settings, monitor which devices are connected to your network and pause connectivity on selected devices, and even manage the lighting settings on the device.

The AmpliFi Alien sports a beautiful 4.7 inch full-colour touch screen that displays the time, real-time upload and download activity, the number of devices connected to the network, or speed tests independent of the app.

If you’re picking up the AmpliFi Alien for a seriously large home or office, you could also consider the AmpliFi Alien Kit ($1299), which includes an AmpliFi Alien router and one AmpliFi Alien MeshPoint. The AmpliFi Alien MeshPoint expands wireless range coverage and includes a Gigabit Ethernet port to extend your wired and wireless connectivity.
