Netgear XR300

details: Nighthawk Pro Gaming Router
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2019-08-30
The XR300 provides up to 1750Mbps (450Mbps @2.4GHz + 1300Mbps @5GHz 11ac) speed for instant downloads and backup.

Nighthawk Pro Gaming routers use proven technology that professional gamers and streamers trust. Powered by DumaOS and loaded with features like geo-filter, ping assist, gaming prioritization, and more.

Anti-Buffer Bloat (ABB) is just a fancy way of saying you can create an express lane for gaming traffic. Using ABB and the XR300's dual-core processor to sort through your networking and prioritize traffic, you won’t have to worry about lag ruining your day.

With Advanced Quality of Service (QoS) backed by a 1 ghz dual-core processor, the XR300 adeptly prioritizes even the most congested home networking traffic. That means you’ll stay in the game and not in the queue.

Unlike typical WiFi routers that just blast the WiFi signals in all directions, with Beamforming+ the router & device communicate with each other, so the router can directly beam the WiFi signal to the device. Boosting speed, reliability, and range for both Implicit and Explicit 2.4 & 5GHz WiFi devices, the result is a stronger, faster, more reliable connection that is locked in even when the device is moved around the home.

Wired or wireless, XR300 powered by a 1.0GHz dual-core processor designed to transfer multi-gigs of data. Full-packet processing offload means zero load on the CPU.
