The X6 innovative Tri-Band Wi-Fi technology has the intelligence that it applies to each device that really changes the game for today’s home Wi-Fi networks. The X6 gives you more and faster wifi for the increasing number of devices in your home. It also has a technology called beamforming, meaning beams forming concentrates the wifi signal at the devices where it is detected, so the router knows where the device is in relation to itself and concentrates the signal in that area. NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 is an expensive unit. It does stream full HD to multiple devices. The router has USB 2.0 port, LED on/off, four gigabit ports, Ethernet port, USB 3.0 port, factory reset button and a power button. The router also has two large heat sinks that keeps it cool. Nighthawk X6 delivers very high throughput. For e.g., with the router in the hallway and the tablet in the living room, transfer rates of 702 Mbps can be achieved and multiple devices work flawlessly despite the walls.

A standard AC 1750 dual band router and the Nighthawk X6 delivers similar combined wifi speeds when only two devices are connected to the network. Once more devices are connected the combined wifi speed of the AC 1750 dual band router is reduced dramatically while the Nighthawn X6 continues to perform at a faster speed. The addition of slower mobile devices reduces the overall performance on the AC 1750 wifi router while the Nighthawk X6 separates this devices into separate wifi bands delivering four times the performance of AC 1750. The X6 is ideal for today’s connected homes with an increasing number of wifi devices simultaneously streaming videos and online gaming giving you the best wifi performance.

X6 gives this four times better performance by using the smart connect technology. The smart connect has the intelligence to connect each device to the wifi band where it can connect at its maximum possible speed. Using smart connect the X6 automatically separates slower and faster devices. For e.g., 802.11 ac capable laptops would connect to one 5 g band while dual-band tablets and smartphones run on the other 5g band. The result of this smart optimization is that the faster devices can connect and perform unhindered by slower devices. With Nighthawk X6 all your devices will load, stream and game at their maximum speed.
To improve performance even further the Nighthawk X6 also provides load balancing across the two 5 GHz bands, for e.g., you may have three tablets connected to your wifi network, when a fourth device a smartphone logs on the X6 will automatically connect it with a second 5 gigahertz band, to ensure utilization of both the 5 gigahertz bands. This gives you the best wifi performance.
