The Honor Router 3 is a new breed of budget Wi-Fi 6 routers, that’s only now cropping up with the goal of bringing the tech to the masses. It’s good for the average consumer and that shows both in its clean and friendly marketing, as well as in its basic, yet efficient feature set.

It is also worth noting that the Honor Router 3 can not be wall-mounted in a sensible way. Not only does it lack any mounting holes at the bottom, but its antennal can’t bend back any further than the standard 90-degree. You do get a quick-start guide with the Honor Router 3, but it is mostly redundant. Like any good router, this one has a handy sticker on the back, pointing you to either the default 192.168.3.1 management URL or the Huawei AI Life app. There is a QR code that leads to the app’s listing in the Google Play Store or Huawei’s app gallery. From there, it’s just a wizard to get basic functionality up and running. It’s user-friendly and you can set it up in just a few minutes.
Starting with the basics, though, Wi-Fi 6 is the next mainstream iteration of the IEEE 802.11 standard. Its other name is Wi-Fi ax. But the IEEE has now coined this new numbering scheme, for the sake of simplicity and has retroactively applied it to older Wi-Fi standards. Just like Wi-Fi ac, Wi-Fi 6 retains compatibility with existing client devices. It operates at the same 2.4 GHz and 5GHz bands, as before. You do need a Wi-Fi 6 client to make use of the additional benefits of Wi-Fi 6.
The Honor Router 3 even takes extra steps to ensure ac compatibility. There is a special toggle in its settings menu that enables a fallback 5GHz mode, to cater to certain odd clients – mostly old Intel-branded laptop Wi-Fi radios. You should, however, only resort to this more inefficient mode if you experience actual issues with your existing devices, that won’t go away with a driver or firmware update.
