Netgear announced today the introduction of the Nighthawk Mesh WiFi System. Designed for the tech enthusiast, the new Nighthawk WiFi 6 Mesh System brings the experience of reliable and flexible WiFi coverage with specialized features such as Dynamic QoS, which automatically prioritizes both video streaming and gaming traffic.

The Nighthawk Mesh System comes with one or two high-powered satellites to provide whole home broadband WiFi coverage. Dead zones are eliminated by easily adding satellites wherever needed or to scale up when moving to a larger home. Setup is completed in minutes with the free Nighthawk App on Apple iOS or Android OS and is also used to easily manage the network from your mobile device.

A Nighthawk Mesh WiFi 6 router or a satellite supports dual-band WiFi with up to 1.8Gbps using the latest WiFi 6. Legacy devices also will experience enhanced connectivity, as the WiFi 6 backhaul for mesh systems improves utilization of WiFi channels with its use of faster speeds and better efficiencies over WIFi 6. The router also comes equipped with 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports (one for the internet and the other for the LAN) while the satellite comes with 1 Gigabit Ethernet port.

Nighthawk Mesh WiFi 6 System with one router and a satellite (MK62) will be shipping this month for a suggested retail price of $229.99. The router and two satellite (MK63) kit will be available later in Q1 with pricing announced at that time.

Additionally, Netgear is also announcing the following WiFi 6 router and extender during CES 2020:
