Description

The Netgear X8 D8500 Nighthawk Tri-Band Wireless Router is the next wave in WiFi. Tri-band WiFi and Quad Stream performance boosts X8's combined wireless speeds to up to 5.3Gbps. Four external Active Antennas plus four internal antennas amplify WiFi range. Six Gigabit Ethernet ports means even more wired devices can connect and with port aggregation 2 ports can combine to double maximum wired speeds. Includes auto detection for universal DSL support, compatible with VDSL, VDSL2, ADSL, ADSL2, and ADSL2+.

Key Features

  • Fastest Tri-Band WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router: Nighthawk X8 not only delivers the fastest total WiFi speeds of up to 5.3Gbps, but also uses Smart Connect to ensure all of your WiFi devices like smart phones, tablets, and laptops connect at the fastest possible speed. 
  • Twice the Wired Speed: Six Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports allows you to connect even more wired devices. Two of six Gigabit Ethernet ports can be aggregated to double the connection speed to a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device for 4K HD streaming or fast backups of multiple WiFi devices simultaneously.
  • Faster Downloads and Smoother Streaming with MU-MIMO: When multiple devices are connected to the router, each device needs to take it's turn and then wait before receiving more data. This leads to slower network and Internet speeds. MU-MIMO technology delivers high-speed data streams to up to three devices simultaneously, so there's less waiting, boosting overall network speeds for all WiFi devices.
  • Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS): Reduce buffering and lag while gaming or streaming. 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.
  • Industry's First Active Antennas: Nighthawk X8 is the first to introduce Active Antennas. With four internal antennas and four external antennas, the X8 will enhance weak signals and reduce interference. Active Antennas help improve WiFi performance by amplifying WiFi signals in the antenna itself, this avoids signal loss during transmission and noise insertion from the router board.

Reviews
Netgear X8 D8500 Nighthawk Tri-Band Wireless Router is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can I get one that works? I first purchased this router only to return it the following day (after a full wasted day of troubleshooting) and had it replaced. This second router has now failed after two months, now have to return again (after a further four hours of troubleshooting). Not sure I want it replaced now though...
