Routers may not be the most exciting consumer products on the market but the latest WiFi router from Netgear is pretty darn cool if I do say so myself. The Netgear “Nighthawk” X6 AC3200 Tri-Band WiFi router (R8000 for short) is an absolute beast of a WiFi solution. The Netgear R8000 offers six high performance antennas across three network bands: one 2.4GHz and two 5GHz offering 600 + 1400 + 1400 mbps respectively – that’s a staggering 3.2 Gbps of WiFi capability. The dual 5GHz bands means the router can allocate different types of traffic to different antennae, gaming traffic and video streams can have separate 5GHz bands for example, to optimise the overall network experience. The Netgear R8000 is powered by a dual core 1GHz processor with three additional offload processors to offer a ridiculously powerful solution. Netgear’s R8000 also supports Beamforming+ WiFi signal focusing technology and comes with a USB 3.0 storage port for easy sharing of USB 3.0 storage drives over the network. As if all that wasn’t enough Netgear also offer you VPN support with your own remote access URL gateway, an SPI and NAT double firewall and a separate pre-configured guest network. As you might expect all that power and networking prestige doesn’t come cheap, the R8000 will set you back a whopping $299.99.
