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.
