Netgear R7800 Overview

  • 1Description

Supporting data transfer rates up to 2.53 Gbps, the R7800 Nighthawk X4S Dual-Band Wireless-AC2600 Smart Wi-Fi Router from Netgear users can stream multimedia content, transfer large files, game online, send emails, and more all at the same time. With support for up to four separate data streams in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands, and the implementation of MU-MIMO (Multiple User-Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology, each connected user benefits from their own direct connection to the network rather than having to share a single data path. Backing up the enhanced wireless connectivity are four high-performance antennas, a dual-core 1.7 GHz processor, 128 MB flash memory, and 512 MB RAM providing the necessary processing power to virtually eliminate hiccups within the network.

Not only can you connect to the network wirelessly with the N7800 Nighthawk, you can also connect Ethernet enabled devices to any of the four Gigabit Ethernet ports. You can also connect USB compatible peripherals such as hard drives to either of the two USB 3.0 ports. By connecting a hard drive to the router you allow users to access stored files from anywhere on the network. Installation and management of this Netgear router has also been greatly simplified thanks to the Netgear Genie app. This app features an intuitive dashboard complete with the ability to monitor, control, and repair various aspects of the network.

Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
Traditional Wi-Fi routers can stream data to only one device in the home at a time. When multiple devices are connected to the router, each device needs to take its turn, and then wait before receiving more data. This can lead to slower network and Internet speeds. Using Multi-User MIMO technology, Netgear routers can stream data to multiple devices simultaneously. With MU-MIMO, your Wi-Fi network can deliver faster throughput to every MU-MIMO connected device. That means faster downloads and smoother streaming for your devices.
Quad-Stream X4 Architecture
Quad-stream Wave 2 Wi-Fi, means the X4S supports up to four data streams in each Wi-Fi band, maximizing connection speeds for faster gaming and smoother HD video streaming with greater clarity and less buffering.
Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS)
If you like gaming and streaming videos, then you can benefit from Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS). Dynamic QoS automatically prioritizes bandwidth to latency sensitive applications like online gaming and video streaming by recognizing application and device information as well as bandwidth needs. Dynamic QoS will also ensure that lower priority applications like file downloads will never get completely stopped.
Powerful Dual-Core 1.7 GHz Processor
Basic Wi-Fi routers use simple single-core processors to connect Wi-Fi devices to the Internet. Nighthawk X4S delivers simultaneous dual band Wi-Fi, Quad-Stream performance on each band, Multi-User MIMO, has 5 Gigabit LAN ports, as well as one eSATA and dual USB 3.0 interfaces to connect external USB storage. Using a single-core processor would cause severe performance issues as various processes compete for CPU power. That's why the X4S utilizes a powerful 1.7 GHz dual-core processor to separate processes and prioritize high-performance Wi-Fi connections.
• Fast Wi-Fi-Up to 2.53 Gbps

    Netgear R7800 Reviews

    R7800 Nighthawk X4S Dual-Band Wireless-AC2600 Smart Wi-Fi Router is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced my ISP's Router I bought this to replace the free router given to me by my ISP because the range was terrible. With the old router I would stream Netflix shows on my TV downstairs while the the router is upstairs and it would constantly buffer. With the Netgear it instantly starts up in HD and there is no quality reduction. I also do a lot of console gaming and online game streaming and this router is perfect for handling all of the traffic giving me no lag whatsoever. With dynamic QoS I was able to setup bandwidth priorities for each of my devices.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As an intermediate user, this router is amazing! Extremely please with the range and advanced functions. What is it capable of would be more easily answered what isn't it capable of as a residential router. This is a high-end residential modem that doesn't bod down with other heavy users in the house all using simultaneously. Extremely pleased and with B&H Photo's packaging it is basically bullet proof from the likes of UPS and Fed-Ex. I love you guys and gals at B&H. I rarely purchase anything from NY or NJ because of the poor quality of goods I receive BUT B&H is worry free! ALWAYS receive excellent product from you folks! Shalom!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strong performance for 2 months, then dead OrderedNov 28, 2016. Standard firmware was buggy, would freeze on occasion. Flashed to DD-WRT which eliminated freezing when navigating/updating router settings. WiFi speeds impressive and plenty of throughput when using several devices concurrently. In Feb. (2 months + few days) noticed that WiFi connections would drop, slow or inconsistent WiFi speeds that would be fixed with router reboot. Then mid Feb. WiFi would stop working (router on, no led errors, but WiFi signal gone). Tried power cycling which fixed problems for a matter of hours. Router now dead. Reconnected my Airport Extreme which works perfectly despite being several years old. I have worked w dozens of routers over the years, including the Netgear Nighthawk RC AC 1900 (R7000) that I have configured at my barn using DD-WRT and it has been solid for years. Avoid the R7800! Now I need to reach out to Netgear tech support to see if they will offer any support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage Excellent signal to our upper and lower levels. iPhones, iPads, laptops, Smart TV's and Roku's on the system with no drop outs or buffering. Total installation time unpack to online 40 minutes. As usual great service and prompt delivery from B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I never knew what I was missing I never knew what I was missing until I got this router. Before I was using the stock router that my cable company gave me and we were starting to have some performance issues with it so I decided to upgrade to the X4S. Wow what a difference. The range is much greater than before and I do not have any dead spots anywhere in my house or garage. The speeds are much better and it can handle the load of all the devices that are attached to my network. I give it a solid A+.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from R7800 Nighthawk X4S Dual-Band Wireless-AC2600 Router I purchased this router to replace an outdated Linksys E2500 10/100 router. This router was easy to setup, and has two bands or channels and was very easy to setup. It also has four antennas, so it gives a much stronger signal form anywhere in the house. I also got terrific pre-sales support from Boruch B. I would certainly buy it again, and from B+H of course!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Netgear R7800 I have used many different names when it comes to routers.... Whatever it takes to get strong uninterrupted wifi.... Dealt with Netgear in the past and have no complaints with them or anyone else for that matter.... Want the X10 more, but chose this unit instead so I could get video gear that was needed.... 10 devices (Main tower, two laptops, two smart phones, three PlayStations, and three LED Samsung flat screens. The Canon printer/fax is also on it and works all three computers).... Large 3 story home.... Bit of patience needed with the registration and Netgear Genie as well as the firmware update.... But after all is said and done the unit works splendidly.... Range outdoors goes into the neighbor's yard.... What more does one need.... :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router. Buy one. This router is very nice. I use it to run DDWRT and run a full time VPN on my entire home network. It works great for application. its able to run an encrypted VPN with minimal speed lose. I am getting about 85Mbs download and 100Mbs upload. I am able to game and do all normal streaming with ease. I have nothing but good things to report. Highly recommend this unit and this store. fantastic prices and very fast shipping. Will be doing more business with B&H for sure.
