Netgear RAX120 AX6000 Nighthawk AX12 12-Stream WiFi 6 Router
Boost the speed and efficiency of your home Wi-Fi network with the Nighthawk AX12 12-Stream Wi-Fi 6 Router from Netgear. Equipped with eight internal antennas and capable of up to 6 Gb/s of total Wi-Fi throughout, this dual-band router supports the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) wireless standard. Among the benefits of Wi-Fi 6 are multi-user MIMO support, which allows for multiple simultaneous data streams; OFDMA (orthogonal frequency division multiple access) support, which helps to enhance efficiency and reduce latency; and target wake time (TWT), which helps to optimize the battery life of connected mobile devices. The Nighthawk AX12 comes equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, a Gigabit Ethernet LAN port, and a 5 Gb/s Ethernet port that allows for multi-gigabit wired connections. Two USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports let you share printers and storage devices, while WPA3 encryption helps to enhance security. Orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) increases network capacity and efficiency through smarter traffic scheduling to manage high-bandwidth activities while simultaneously supporting your connected smart home devices. Wi-Fi traffic is managed more efficiently, transmitting data from different devices concurrently, rather than having each device’s data wait for its turn. Twelve Wi-Fi streams, including four in the 2.4 GHz band and eight in the 5 GHz band, enable the router to send and receive more data from connected devices. Essentially, more spatial streams mean more available bandwidth and less congestion for all the devices in the Wi-Fi network. Nighthawk AX12 also supports sending up to eight multi-user MIMO transmissions at a time, which is four more than what existing Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) routers allow. Let your devices run at their highest speed over existing wiring. The multi-gigabit Ethernet port on AX12 is designed to give you five times faster speeds than the wired speed of a typical Gigabit Ethernet port, allowing your network-attached storage (NAS) devices, switches, and other devices capable of 2.5 Gb/s and 5 Gb/s speeds to operate at full capacity. Use the four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports to connect more wired devices, or combine two Gigabit Ethernet ports to further improve the aggregated file transfer speed. Eight high-performance antennas concealed inside the router’s shell help extend wireless range indoors and out. The antennas are pre-optimized for optimal Wi-Fi performance. Router signals are amplified to maximize reach and reliability, letting you use your Wi-Fi in more places. Get stronger Wi-Fi signals throughout your home, whether for your basement gaming consoles or for your outdoor security cameras. The Netgear Nighthawk App makes it easy to set up your router and get more out of your Wi-Fi. With the app, you can install your router by simply connecting your mobile device to the router network; the app will walk you through the rest. Once set up, you can use the intuitive dashboard to pause internet on your connected devices, run a quick internet speed test, and more. it has 2 years of warranty.
