Introduction

 

Synology had sizable success with its first two iterations of the wireless router. The RT2600ac to this day is one of my favorite platforms for a stable storage driven router.

With the success of mesh platforms in the last year, Synology went to the drawing board to design and implement a low-cost option to adding nodes to it already popular SRM platform. The results of this are the MR2200ac, a tri-band platform offering two 5GHz bands at 867Mbps and a 2.4GHz band at 400Mbps.

 

This platform takes things an extra step offering MU-MIMO Wave 2 support along with Beamforming and DFS. Further, the MR2200ac is the first Wireless Router to support WPA3 and OWE. Like the RT2600ac, the MR2200ac takes advantage of Qualcomm with the IPQ4019, four cores at 716MHz.

 

 

This is paired with 256MB of memory and 8MB of flash as a buffer to the 4GB SRM uses. Radios include the 2:2 solution that's part of the 4019 along with a secondary QCA9886. The Ethernet switch used is the QCA8072.

 

MSRP of the Synology MR2200ac comes in at $139.99 with a two-year warranty.
