Are you looking to take your family network to the next level? The Nighthawk AX8 has all the capabilities you need for smart home connectivity, multiple device streaming and wired devices.

With speed and efficiency in mind, this device had been designed to give you consistent WiFi signals across your home applications. The AX8 supports all current WiFi devices and is compatible with the new 802.11ax or WiFi 6 standard.

Whether you have smart home connectivity and several other devices running at the same time, or you simply have several family members who want to stream different Netflix shows or sports matches simultaneously, this router can handle multiple devices without losing its signal strength.

One of the main challenges facing modern family homes is that each family member has different connectivity needs and many routers are unable to meet these requirements efficiently, which results in delays, buffering or drops in signal.

The Nighthawk's four antennas ensure you benefit from powerful signal across your home, which allows you and your family the freedom to use different applications at the same time. This is possible because the Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access allows multiple signals to be sent simultaneously so that everything in your home can connect smoothly, continuously and effectively. Some of the applications that would allow you to take advantage of these capabilities include virtual reality, augmented reality and Internet of things sensors.

This router is geared towards creating the best possible WiFi connections across a large home. It offers your family the freedom to stream, play video or computer games and connect your smart home assistant. This means the days of dropping signal or buffering during that all-important rugby final are over. Netgear has created a router with high-quality connection for your family at the heart of its design.
