For manufacturers, the provision of WLANs for certification or accreditation is voluntary.

In addition, Wi-Fi 6 can dynamically divide the wireless channels used on connected devices, as well as flexibly adjust the bandwidth of each channel.
The new Wi-Fi 6 standard complies with previous standards, which means that users can use old laptops equipped with Wi-Fi 4 (n-WLAN) with "Wi-Fi 6" routers without any problems, However, the performance is slower than the standard Wi-Fi 4 standard.
