Product Features

  • 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.
  • Beamforming+ - for more reliable connections
    Unlike typical Wi-Fi routers that just blast the Wi-Fi signals in all directions, with Beamforming+ the router & device communicate with each other, so the router can directly beam the Wi-Fi signal to the device. Boosting speed, reliability, and range for both Implicit and Explicit 2.4 & 5 GHz Wi-Fi devices, the result is a stronger, faster, more reliable connection that is locked in even when the device is moved around the home.
