DFS and Gaming Prioritisation
Linksys has also emphasised that only the routers obtained from StarHub will feature Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) and gaming prioritisation features which will be rolled out subsequently.
As such, the store-bought Linksys routers will not include such features.
There was also talk about future StarHub TV support with the Linksys MX4200, although not much has been confirmed about it.

Future-Ready WiFi – Linksys Intelligent Mesh is the only mesh system that’s interoperable with its entire portfolio. It’s flexible and scalable so consumers can expand their network as needs grow, with a simple addition of any Linksys mesh node/router.
Qualcomm Networking Pro 800 platform – With 8 streams of tri-band WiFi 6 connectivity, and a 64-bit 1.4GHz Quad-Core ARM processor powering dynamic data processing and management, the Velop MX4200 provides game-changing network advancements that enhance efficiency, range and power consumption and deliver more capacity for online gaming, video calls and meetings, and 8K streaming on their devices.
Tri-band dynamic backhaul – Unlike some mesh systems that use a dedicated backhaul and limit the number of bands that the user can connect to, Linksys uses a dynamic backhaul, allowing access to all 3 bands throughout the home.
