About the NETGEAR MK62 Nighthawk™

Fill your large home with strong, fast Wi-Fi 6

NETGEAR's MK62 Nighthawk mesh router system uses Wi-Fi 6 and speedy quad-core processors to turbo-charge your network, offering speeds of up to 1.8Gbps for bulletproof gaming, 4K content streaming, and video conferencing. 

Fill your large home with strong, fast Wi-Fi 6

NETGEAR's MK62 Nighthawk mesh router system uses Wi-Fi 6 and speedy quad-core processors to turbo-charge your network, offering speeds of up to 1.8Gbps for bulletproof gaming, 4K content streaming, and video conferencing. 

The main router module plugs in wherever your modem is located, and broadcasts wireless signal to the satellite, which repeats and boosts it throughout your home. Used together, the modules can cover up to 3,000 square feet with strong, fast Wi-Fi. And the router and satellites use a single Wi-Fi name (SSID) so you experience seamless connectivity as you roam throughout the house. If you need still more coverage, the network is easy to expand with the addition of another satellite (not included.)

Smart features for busy networks

Having broad coverage is nice, but this system helps you use your bandwidth intelligently, too. Beamforming boosts speed, reliability and range of your Wi-Fi connection. Other special features facilitate simultaneous data transmission to multiple connected devices. That makes this router especially useful for latency-sensitive applications such as cooperative gaming, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and smart home devices.

App-based monitoring and control

The free Nighthawk app offers easy remote management of your network, including:

  • check broadband speeds from your service provider with internet speed test
  • track internet usage with traffic meter utility
  • set up a separate, secure Wi-Fi network for guests
  • pause internet service to any connected device

Tough security

The router system's Wi-Fi Protected Access® offers tough WPA3 encryption that denies outsiders access to your wireless signal. And security updates happen automatically, so it protects against new threats as they emerge. It also offers support for VPN service, for extra security and privacy.

Features

Mesh WiFi 6 System: With NETGEAR'S Nighthawk Mesh WiFi 6 System (MK62) you'll enjoy advanced whole home WiFi designed to deliver smooth 4K online video streaming and fast online video gaming to more devices at the same time. The Nighthawk MK62 consists of a WiFi Router (MR60) and WiFi Satellite (MS60). It is perfect for medium to large homes up to 3,000 sq/ft and internet speeds over 100 Mbps. The Nighthawk MK62 system supports WiFi EasyMesh and allows you to connect additional satellites (sold separately) to expand wireless coverage even further.

  • WiFi EasyMesh: WiFi Certified EasyMesh brings a standards-based approach to WiFi networks that utilize multiple satellites or access points by combining the benefits of easy-to-use self-adapting WiFi with greater flexibility in device choice when building your WiFi network. WiFi EasyMesh networks employ multiple satellites or access points that work together to form a unified network that provides smart, efficient WiFi throughout your home or business.
  • Seamless WiFi: A single network name provides seamless room-to-room roaming throughout your home so you can stream without the signal dropping. The Nighthawk MK62 system creates a seamless network throughout your home by using the same WiFi network name (SSID) for the included router and satellite, plus any additional satellites. Your WiFi devices like your smartphones, tablets, and laptops will remain connected to the same network name without disconnect and reconnect as you move around your house and yard.

ISP Compatibility: The Nighthawk MK62 Mesh WiFi 6 System is compatible with all internet service providers (ISP) and recommended for homes with over 100Mbps Internet plans. Just connect to your modem to create high-speed WiFi for your whole home. Unlike some WiFi systems, the MK62 works with your existing gateway or modem and Internet service provider right out of the box. You won't need to change your current equipment to use the Nighthawk MK62 Mesh WiFi 6 System. The MK62 uses a single WiFi name (SSID) and with just a couple of clicks, your secure WiFi network will be ready in no time.

  • If your gateway or modem has router functionality, when you set up the MK62 network, choose AP mode and turn off your existing gateway or modem's WiFi to improve performance.
  • If your gateway or modem does not have router functionality, when you set up the MK62 Mesh WiFi 6 network, select router mode and turn off your existing gateway or modem's WiFi to improve performance.
Note: After your existing WiFi is disabled, you can use that WiFi network name for Nighthawk MK62 Mesh WiFi 6 System.

Power Processor & Antennas: The NETGEAR Nighthawk Mesh WiFi 6 System (MK62) employs a powerful 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and features four high-performance internal antennas. The ultra-fast 1.5 GHz quad-core processor enables the router to seamlessly handle data intensive applications such as 4K UHD video streaming, VR/AR gaming, as well as provide a stronger, more reliable WiFi experience. This powerful processor is optimized for making intelligent spontaneous decisions to schedule data traffic for maximized WiFi Bandwidth utilization.

WiFi 6 (802.11ax): With WiFi 6, you get up to 4x more device capacity than you do with WiFi 5; so you can stream, game, work and learn from home without affecting speed or reliability.WiFi 6 supports up to 12 streams at once. You'll enjoy blazing-fast speeds on all your connected devices and say goodbye to buffering and lag. Many of the latest smartphones and laptops are compatible with WiFi 6. By upgrading to WiFi 6, you can connect your new smart devices to the most powerful WiFi standard, unlock the best WiFi performance, and get the most out of your WiFi 6 products.

  • 4X4 MU-MIMO: Using 4X4 MU-MIMO technology, the Nighthawk MK62 can stream data to multiple devices simultaneously. Quad Stream on both WiFi bands gives you the fastest WiFi speeds combined with MU-MIMO capability allows you to simultaneously stream to multiple devices at the same time. Thanks to Quad Stream, up to four data streams per WiFi band maximizes connection speed. 8 WiFi streams (four in the 2.4GHz band and four in the 5GHz band) offer 4x the device capacity as compared to typical 2x2 AC WiFi. More WiFi streams per band greatly increases the amount of data the router sends to and receives from devices because more bandwidth is available and there is less congestion for all the devices on the network. With reliable connections to all connected devices, now more devices than ever before can simultaneously be on your network.
  • 12 WiFi Streams: More WiFi streams provide more available bandwidth and less congestion for all the devices in the WiFi network. Since separate data signals can be sent to and from your devices on different streams, the amount of information that can be sent over your network greatly increases. The powerful Nighthawk Tri-Band AX12 (RAX200) router provides 12 streams of WiFi connectivity giving you a superior WiFi performance for Ultra HD streaming, low latency gaming, and all your smart home devices.

Note: WiFi 6 is backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac client devices (WiFi 5 and below).

1.8 Gbps Dual-Band: WiFi 6 offers improved improved dual-band technology designed for faster, more reliable connections that can handle 25 or more devices for smoother streaming and connection capacity. The Dual-Band Mesh WiFi 6 System's combined speeds up to 1.8 Gbps will keep up with your family's streaming, gaming, and smart home needs.

  • Band 1: 600 Mbps @ 2.4 GHz
  • Band 2: 1200 Mbps @ 5.0 GHz

OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access): WiFi 6 uses OFDMA to direct WiFi traffic much more efficiently, increasing network capacity even when multiple devices are connected to the network. Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) enables efficient data scheduling so that more transmissions can be sent at the same time, resulting in an impressive capacity increase in your network. This increased or available bandwidth allows you to add more devices to your network. Nighthawk AX8 supports uplink and downlink OFDMA to efficiently use air-time with better frequency reuse, reduced latency, and increased network efficiency. This is extremely useful for latency sensitive applications such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and Internet of things (IoT) sensors.

Beamforming: Beamforming boosts speed, reliability, and range of WiFi connections on 2.4 and 5GHz bands. 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. The result is a stronger, faster, more reliable connection that is locked in even when the device is moved around the home.

Gigabit Ethernet Ports: In addition to WiFi connectivity, the NETGEAR Nighthawk MK2 system offers hardwired Ethernet connectivity. The system's WiFi Router (MR60) features two Gigabit Ethernet ports (1 WAN / 1 LAN). The WAN port is used to connect your Internet modem, while the LAN port is used to connect a local network device. The system's WiFi Satellite is outfitted with one Gigabit Ethernet LAN port (no WAN port) to connect a hardwired network component in another room. The Gigabit Ethernet ports support wired connections up to 10x faster than standard Ethernet and allows you to easily connect shared storage devices, printers, and other supported peripherals to your network.

Nighthawk App: The Nighthawk App (for Apple iOS 11.0+ & Android OS 5.0+) makes it easy and intuitive to setup and use the NETGEAR Nighthawk MK62 system. With the Nighthawk app, you can install your router using very few steps - just connect your mobile device to the default network, and the app will walk you through the rest. The app automatically updates the router to the latest firmware, allows you to personalize your WiFi network, and even help register your router with NETGEAR.
