Product Overview

Improved Network Capacity for More WiFi Devices

Nighthawk® AX12 12-Stream AX6000 WiFi Router supports Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) - the latest WiFi standard with four times increased data capacities to handle today and tomorrow’s growing home network. Blazing-fast combined WiFi speeds up to 6Gbps and an AX optimized 64bit 2.2GHz quad-core processor powers smart home applications, ultra-smooth 4K UHD streaming, online gaming, and more. AX WiFi features Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) that dramatically increases network capacity as compared to today’s WiFi and reduces latency for a better WiFi experience making it ideal for a household with many WiFi devices. Plus, eight high-performance antennas amplify WiFi signals for maximized range and reliable coverage. Nighthawk AX12 is also NETGEAR’s first home router with a 5Gig port.


Improved Capacity for Smart Home Automation

Your WiFi won’t slow you down, even when multiple devices in your home are uploading videos, surfing the web and sending text messages. Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) increases network capacity and efficiency through smarter traffic scheduling to manage all high-bandwidth activities while simultaneously supporting all your connected smart home devices. WiFi traffic is managed much more efficiently, transmitting data from different devices concurrently, rather than having each device’s data wait for its turn.


12-Streams WiFi - Improved Efficiency, Reduced Latency

Twelve WiFi streams—that is, four in the 2.4GHz band and eight in the 5GHz band— enables the router to send and receive more data from the devices. Essentially, more spatial streams means more available bandwidth and less congestion for all the devices in the WiFi network. Nighthawk AX12 also supports sending up to eight multi-user MIMO transmissions at a time—four more than the existing Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) routers. Maintain fast and reliable wireless connections throughout your home, even when multiple devices are concurrently streaming high-definition content.


Stronger Security for your Home Network with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED WPA3™

Nighthawk AX12 supports WPA3™, the latest WiFi security protocol with new capabilities to enhance WiFi protection for your home network. Features such as improved password-based authentication and stronger encryption provide high-level of security for all connected devices on your network.


Stream, Game and Work Without Interruptions

64bit 2.2GHz quad-core processor is the ultra-fast processor for your home router, providing smoother 4K UHD streaming and online/VR gaming, as well as a stronger, more reliable WiFi experience. This powerful processor is optimized for AX, ensuring speed and performance for more smart home devices and high-speed applications.


New Multi-Gigabit Wired Speeds

Let your devices run at their highest speed over existing wiring. The multi-gigabit Ethernet port on AX12 gives you five times faster speeds than the wired speed of a typical Gigabit port. Your network attached storage (NAS) devices, switches, and other devices capable of 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps speeds can now operate at full capacity. Use the four gigabit Ethernet LAN ports to connect more wired devices for faster file transfer and uninterrupted connections. Combine two gigabit Ethernet ports to further improve the aggregated file transfer speed. The Nighthawk AX12 is NETGEAR's first home router offering Multi-Gig speeds with 5G/2.5G/1G Multi-Gig Ethernet LAN port.


Powerful WiFi for the Whole Home

Eight high-performance antennas extend wireless range indoors and out. The antennas are pre-optimized for best WiFi performance. Router signals are amplified to maximize reach and reliability, letting you use your WiFi in more places. Get stronger WiFi signals throughout your home, whether for your basement gaming consoles or for your outdoor security cameras.


Cutting-Edge Design

This next-generation router design conceals eight high-performance antennas under its 'wings'. The antennas are optimally positioned for best WiFi performance, extending reliable and stronger WiFi coverage indoors and outdoors.

Reviews
Netgear Nighthawk AX12 12-Stream Router, 8x Antennas, MU-MIMO, Dual-Band 2.4+5GHz (1200+4800Mbps), 802.11ax is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unreliable Given the steep asking price and stellar reviews regarding its speed, I bought this expecting a raliable, high-bandwidth multi-stream router solution. The truth is: it is fast! It can handle all the promissed streams alright. Just not for very long. The router crashes frequently, disconnecting all devices and there is no way of even accessing it. Only solution: pulling the plug, letting it sit for a half minute or so and then plugging it back in. A quick Google search will show that reliability is a common concern with this router (and similar models) to which the best and most reliable solution seems to be to buy a new router that's not NETGEAR. That includes NETGEAR support. Because they understandably want you to keep your router, they will make you jump through quite a number of hoops. One support agent theorized it was a DoS attack, another fiddled with the MCU setting, another made me factory reset it altogether and set it up again manually, set it up through the app (that you need to download on your smartphone, setup a user account for and then connect), then set it up again but NOT using the app and so forth. In the end, buying a new router that isn't NETGEAR is the best and most reliable fix. Also, when updating the firmware, you'll have to reset it to factory settings because "the update can mess up the settings" (quoting Netgear support). Because it autoupdates itself the first time you set it up, you will set it up twice. And then as many more times as NETGEAR support instructs you to. Lastly, be prepared to create another one of these user accounts complete with username, password and terms of service that doesn't end up doing much. Except perhaps asking for a considerable amount of your time, tiny serial numbers and lots of personal data in return for spamming our inbox.. I am not sure I would consider another NETGEAR product in the future unless they manage to get all this under control. I really regret having bought this device.
