Wireless Connectivity: The NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S (AC2600/R7800) Smart WiFi
Router offers Gigabit WiFi speeds thanks to its WiFi 802.11ac chipset, plus
extended WiFi range and reliability due to its 2.4GHZ & 5GHZ dual-bands.
- 802.11ac: The NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S (AC2600/R7800) Smart WiFi
Router adopts the latest WiFi 802.11ac chipset for extreme download speeds
up to 2.53Gbps (up to 800Mbps @ 2.4GHz, 1733Mbps @ 5GHz). It is also
backward compatible with 802.11 a/b/g/n devices. Next generation 802.11ac
WiFi with dual band technology avoids wireless interference and provides
whole home coverage ensuring top WiFi speeds and reliable connections.
Everything you need for an ultra-fast WiFi connected home.
- Dual-Band WiFi: Simultaneous dual band WiFi provides
two separate WiFi networks - 2.4GHz for legacy devices and 5GHz which is
less interference-prone for media streaming.
- Extended WiFi Range: The NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S (AC2600/R7800) Smart
WiFi Router is equipped with high-powered amplifiers and four external
antennas that provide extremely reliable WiFi connectivity throughout larger
homes for all your Internet-enabled devices.
Advanced WiFi Technologies: With features like Quad Stream +
MU-MIMO, Dynamic QoS, & Beamforming+, you get enhanced speed and
increased reliability so you can roam
freely throughout your home without fear of slow or dropped connections.
- Quad Stream + Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO): Quad Stream
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. Using Multi-User MIMO technology, the NETGEAR router can stream data
to multiple devices simultaneously. With MU-MIMO, your WiFi network can
deliver faster throughput to every MU-MIMO connected device. That means
faster downloads and smoother streaming for your devices.
- Dynamic QoS: Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS) prioritizes your
WiFi bandwidth by application and device. If your Internet bandwidth is
limited, Dynamic QoS resolves Internet traffic congestion by using better
application and device identification, bandwidth allocation, and traffic
prioritization techniques. If you like gaming and streaming videos, you can
benefit from enabling Dynamic QoS. If you use a gigabit Internet connection,
or your Internet download and upload speed is 300 Mbps or faster, you don't
need to use Dynamic QoS.
- 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
