The Nighthawk X4 range extender delivers blazing-fast Wi-Fi around your home.

Want to stream movies, games, and other content over the internet, but running into wireless connectivity issues in parts of your home? The NETGEAR AC2200 Nighthawk X4 is an easy way to boost the range and signal strength of your existing wireless router.

Packed with features

The Nighthawk X4 has many of the powerful network features that NETGEAR's top-shelf routers have including Beamforming+, which uses two-way communication between the router and your phone or tablet to provide the strongest wireless coverage possible. Instead of just broadcasting the Wi-Fi coverage in a broad circle, Beamforming focuses the coverage on your wireless devices. As you move around your home, that focused range follows, giving you a fast and reliable connection every time. The X4 also uses MU-MIMO technology for simultaneous streaming to multiple devices at high speeds.

A real-world test

My wireless router had a hard time reaching one of the bedrooms in my home. To find out how well wireless extenders work, I took one home and put it through its paces. Check out the results here.

Features

WiFi Range Extender: Nighthawk AC2200 Dual Band WiFi Range Extender (EX7300) employs high-power amplifiers and an internal antenna array to boost your existing WiFi and deliver greater wireless speed and coverage to where WiFi signals are weak in your home (up to 10,000 ft² of wireless coverage). It works with any standard WiFi router to deliver dual band WiFi with up to 2.2Gbps. The AC2200 WiFi Range Extender delivers fast WiFi speed and connectivity for smartphones, tablets, laptops, computers, and more. A Gigabit Ethernet port provides WiFi connectivity to a wired device like Blu-ray players, game consoles, smart TVs or streaming players over your existing WiFi network.

Applications: Add this WiFi Range Extender to improve your home's WiFi and get better connections for your tablets, smartphones, laptops and more. Its ideal for HD video streaming and gaming. With the AC2200 WiFi Range Extender you can improve your mobile WiFi speeds by up to 100%. Even, use the WiFi Range Extender as a network bridge for a local LAN device.

802.11ac: The extender supports the 802.11ac networking standard. This new standard offers better speed, improved reliability, and more range than older WiFi networking standards. The extender is also backward compatible with earlier WiFi a/b/g/n standards. However, to get the benefits of 802.11ac, your WiFi router must support the 802.11ac WiFi networking standard. In comparison, the latest 802.11ac WiFi standard is 3x faster than the older 802.11n WiFi standard. 

Dual-Band WiFi: The NETGEAR Nighthawk AC2200 features dual-band WiFi with up to 450 Mbps for 2.4 GHz network and 1733 Mbps for 5 GHz network.

FastLane Technology: FastLane technology improves performance using both WiFi bands. Get the most out of your HD entertainment with FastLane technology. With FastLane technology, the extender connects to your router using one band and connects to your devices using another band. Because a band is dedicated to each function, performance is enhanced. FastLane Technology is ideal for HD streaming & online gaming. When you enable FastLane Technology, two options are available.

  • Use the 2.4 GHz band to connect the extender to the WiFi devices and use the 5 GHz band to connect the extender to the WiFi router. Use this mode if your WiFi router supports the 5 GHz band but the devices that you want to use for gaming and streaming support the 2.4 GHz band.
  • Use the 5 GHz band to connect the extender to the WiFi devices and use the 2.4 GHz band to connect the extender to the WiFi router. Use this mode if the devices that you want to use for gaming and streaming support the 5 GHz band but your WiFi router supports the 2.4 GHz band.
Note: If all your devices and your WiFi router support only the 2.4 GHz band, or all your devices and your WiFi router support only the 5 GHz band, do not enable FastLane Technology.

Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO): Using Multi-User MIMO technology, the NETGEAR WiFi Range Extender can stream data to multiple devices simultaneously. A custom low-noise amplifier improves incoming transmission quality from these multiple mobile devices.

Beamforming+: Beamforming+ boosts speed, reliability, and range of WiFi connections on 2.4 and 5GHz bands. Unlike typical WiFi extenders that just blast the WiFi signals in all directions; with Beamforming+ the router & device communicate with each other, so the extender 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.

Two WiFi Modes: The AC2200 can connect to your network's WiFi signal and then boost that signal or it can connect to your network with a wired connection and work as an access point. You use the Access Point/Extender switch on the side of the extender to select which way you want to use the extender.

  • Extender Mode: In Extender mode, the extender connects to your existing network's WiFi signal and it rebroadcasts two extender WiFi signals, one in the 2.4 GHz band, and another in the 5 GHz band. When you are too far away to connect to your network's WiFi signal, you can connect to an extender WiFi signal instead.
  • Access Point Mode: Access Point mode creates a WiFi hotspot using a wired Ethernet connection. You can use the extender in access point mode as a WiFi access point and create a new WiFi hotspot by using a wired Ethernet connection.

Gigabit Ethernet Port: There is one RJ-45 Ethernet port (10Base-T/100Base-Tx/1000Base-Tx) with auto-sensing technology. This Gigabit Ethernet port is used to connect a wired device like a smart TV or game console to your home's WiFi network.

Wall Plug Design: The compact wall-plug design allows you to simply plug the AC2200 WiFi Range Extender into any electrical outlet.

Smart LED Indicator: A smart LED indicator lights up to help you place the AC2200 WiFi Range Extender for optimal boost in range and performance.

WiFi Analytics App: Use the NETGEAR WiFi Analytics app on your Android (OS 2.2+) smartphone or tablet to get advanced analytics to optimize your existing or newly extended WiFi network. Check your network status, WiFi signal strength, identify crowded WiFi channels and much more.

Flexible & Secure Setup: The WiFi range extender offers WPS & Web Browser setup. Secure WiFi connections offer the highest level of WPA/WPA2/WPA2-PSK security.

  • WPS: You can use WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) to connect the extender to your WiFi router without typing your existing router's WiFi network name (SSID) or WiFi password.
  • Web Browser: You can use a web browser to log in to the extender and set up its WiFi connection to your existing WiFi router.

System Requirements: Make sure your home network meets the following system requirements.

  • Router Type: 2.4 and/or 5GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WiFi router or gateway
  • Internet Browser: Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0, Firefox 20 or Safari 5.1, or Google Chrome 25.0 browsers or higher

Firmware Updates: The extender is set up to check for new firmware automatically at login. Click here for the latest firmware/software updates from NETGEAR.

Q
Must I have access to the wifi router for this product to work? I'm in an RV park and I do not have access to the router

A
Initial setup requires you to be in the same room as the wireless router to connect either thru wps (wireless) or ethernet cable. Once this step is completed you move the extender to find the best place to put it. Hope this helps.
[ Charles  Jul 28, 2020 ]  Staff
A
Yes because you need to tell the router that the extender is there

I plan to mount this outside under cover so it canâ??t get wet. How many feet or yards will this extend my WiFi signal ?

I have an outdoor Nest camera on my garage which is 50 feet from my house, the modem is on the opposite side of the house inside my boiler room. Before I bought this the camera went off and on , since using this it's never gone out. I recommend it.

I can't give you a precise distance, maybe 50-75 feet. It works pretty well, but it does need rebooting probably once each week. I would buy another one but it isnt the magic solution to internet out in your barn.
[ Scott  Apr 17, 2020 ]  Staff
A
Well, mine is mounted inside in the living room to get a better signal in that area. My daughter does a lot of her school work out on the screen porch about 30 feet from the extender and has an excellent signal out there. I hope this helps.
[ Charles  Apr 17, 2020 ]  Staff
A
I am outside right now and my extender is inside and i can move at least 75 feet.

You would need to reach out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to answer your question, as more information will be needed.
