Faster WiFi, Better Performance
8-Stream AX WiFi with up to 1.2 + 4.8Gbps* for ultra-fast wireless speeds. The RAX80 router supports Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), the latest generation of Wi-Fi technology.
Uplink and Downlink OFDMA
Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) substantially improves the network capacity and efficiency. Facilitates efficient data transmission for more devices at the same time in upload and download directions.
2Gbps wired connectivity for faster Internet
Aggregate two (2) Ethernet ports for more than 1 Gigabit internet speed, where supported.
Up to 4 Simultaneous WiFi Streams
4-stream MU-MIMO enables up to four (4) 1x1 devices to stream content at the same time, ideal for homes with a growing number of connected devices. More simultaneous data transfers supported than AC WiFi MU-MIMO routers.
160MHz Channel Support
Gigabit WiFi connection** with today’s and future mobile devices that support 160MHz bandwidth. Up to 2 times faster than standard 2x2 AC WiFi with 80MHz.
Additional DFS Channels Available
For an interference-free experience.
Powerful Quad-Core 1.8GHz Processor
Enough processing power to provide the best performance across all wired and wireless interfaces. An additional quad-core co-processor handles Multi-Gig LAN-WAN traffic with almost zero CPU load.
6 Gigabit Ports
Connect more wired devices for faster file transfer and uninterrupted connections. Two (2) ports can be aggregated for faster LAN transfer and two(2) can be aggregated to enable Multi-Gig internet.
Works with Existing WiFi Devices
Supports current WiFi devices and is backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac client devices (Wi-Fi 5 and below).
Prioritizes internet traffic by application and device for smoother streaming.
Pre-optimized Hidden Antennas
Unfold and set antennas on the router, no further adjustment required. The AX8 antennas come pre-optimized for best WiFi performance.
NETGEAR Nighthawk App
Easily set up your router and get more your of your WiFi. Includes remote access to manage your network away from home.

Deliver latest security patches to the router.
Works with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant
Control your NETGEAR WiFi network with simple voice commands.
Ability to aggregate two Gigabit LAN ports for faster file transfers
Super Speed USB Storage
Up to 10x the speed with USB 3.0 as compared to USB 2.0
Intelligently selects the fastest WiFi band for every device connection. One WiFi name for the entire home.
Improves range and performance for both 2.4 and 5GHz devices.
Secure access to your home network when away from home using any device – PC, Mac, and mobile devices with Android and iOS apps.
Separate and secure network for your guests.
* Compared to a 2x2 AC router without 160MHz support working with mobile clients that support 160MHz bandwidth. Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11ax specifications. Actual data throughput and wireless coverage will vary.
Clients must also support 11ax standards.
**To achieve Gigabit wireless speeds the network requires compatible devices that supports 160MHz channels.
