Netgear R8300

details: Nighthawk X8 AC5000 Smart WiFi Router
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2016-12-25
updated: 2016-12-26
The Nighthawk X8 AC5000 Smart WiFi Router's Tri-Band WiFi and Quad Stream performance boosts its combined wireless speeds to up to 5 Gbps (600Mbps + 2166Mbps + 2166Mbps).

Load Balancing distributes WiFi devices amongst the WiFi bands for the most effective use of the 5GHz WiFi bands.

Using Multi-User MIMO technology, R8300 can stream data to multiple devices simultaneously.

Four external Active Antennas plus four internal antennas amplify WiFi range. Active Antennas help improve WiFi performance by amplifying WiFi signals in the antenna itself, this avoids signal loss during transmission and noise insertion from the router board.

Six Gigabit Ethernet ports means even more wired devices can connect. Two of six Gigabit Ethernet ports can be aggregated to double the connection speed to a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device for 4K HD streaming or fast backups of multiple WiFi devices simultaneously.

Dynamic QoS automatically recognizes different applications and devices and intelligently allocates bandwidth to the most important activities in your home.
