Product Overview Improved Network Capacity for More WiFi Devices
The NETGEAR® Nighthawk® 8-Stream AX6000 WiFi Router (RAX80) supports the new 802.11ax (also known as Wi-Fi 6) WiFi standard. Engineered to deliver up to four times more data capacity than previous standards, AX WiFi features advanced technologies like OFDMA, MU-MIMO, 160MHz channel support and 1024 QAM to vastly improve network efficiency. The Nighthawk AX8 is powered by a 64-bit 1.8GHz quad-core processor designed to transfer gigabits of data with almost zero CPU load. 160MHz channel support doubles the speed offered by 80MHz channels to provide gigabit speed to compatible devices. This router is the industry’s first home router with Multi-Gig internet support, achieved by aggregating two gigabit Ethernet ports. It’s a router that’s ready for the Multi-Gig Internet wave coming in DOCSIS® 3.1.

8-Stream WiFi - Network Efficiency and Faster Speeds
8 WiFi streams (four in the 2.4GHz band and four in the 5GHz band) offer four times the device capacity as compared to typical 2x2 AC WiFi. More WiFi streams per band greatly increases the amount of data the router sends to and receives from devices because more bandwidth is available and there is less congestion for all the devices on the network. With reliable connections to all connected devices, now more devices than ever before can simultaneously be on your network.

Speed
Get ultra-fast wireless speeds for better 4K/8K UHD streaming, gaming or video-conferencing experiences.
• Up to 6Gbps Speeds: 1.2 + 4.8Gbps with 8-stream connectivity.
• Powerful Quad-Core Processor: Robust 1.8GHz processor boosts wireless, wired and WAN-TO-LAN performance.
• 160MHz Channel Support: Doubles the speed offered by 80MHz channels to provide gigabit speed to compatible mobile devices and laptops
• Six Gigabit Ports: Connect more wired devices for faster file transfer and uninterrupted connections.
• 4X4 MU-MIMO: Go faster by simultaneously streaming to multiple devices.
• 1024 QAM: 25% increased data efficiency and faster speeds than a 256 QAM router.
• Two USB 3.O Ports: Up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0.
• Port Aggregation: Ability to aggregate two gigabit LAN ports for faster file transfers and two gigabit ports for Internet connections.

Capacity
Improved network capacity with smarter scheduling increases overall network efficiency and reduces latency.
• Uplink and Downlink OFDMA: Improves network capacity and efficiency.
• Up To Four Simultaneous WiFi Streams: 4-stream MU-MIMO‡ enables up to four 1x1 devices to stream content at the same time.


WiFi Range
Faster and expanded coverage throughout your home for all your devices.
• Ultimate Range: WiFi coverage throughout very large homes.
• High-Performance Antennas: Four hidden antennas extend strong and reliable WiFi signals over larger areas. Antennas are pre-optimized for best WiFi performance.

Reliability
Advanced features and best-in-class technologies mean less interference and more reliable WiFi connectivity.
• Simultaneous Dual Band: Supports two WiFi bands simultaneously to double the available bandwidth and provide a reliable, dedicated WiFi network for smooth online gaming without network congestion.
• Beamforming+: Boosts speed, reliability, and range of WiFi connections on 2.4 and 5GHz bands.
• Pre-Optimized Antennas: Unfold and place antennas on the router, no further adjustment required. The AX8 antennas come pre-optimized for best WiFi performance.

Sharing
Sharing across your network is fun and easy, anything from accessing stored photos and music to wireless printing.
• Two Super Fast USB 3.0 Ports: Up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0.
• ReadySHARE® USB Access: Wirelessly access and share the USB hard drive and printer via two USB ports.
• ReadySHARE® Vault: Free software for automatic PC backup to a USB hard drive connected to the router.
• ReadyCLOUD USB Access: Enjoy personal and secure cloud access to USB storage anytime, anywhere.

8-Stream WiFi - Network Efficiency and Faster Speeds
8 WiFi streams (four in the 2.4GHz band and four in the 5GHz band) offer four times the device capacity as compared to typical 2x2 AC WiFi.

With reliable connections to all connected devices, now more devices than ever before can simultaneously be on your network.

Powerful Performance at the Core
Nighthawk AX8 is powered by a 64-bit 1.8GHz quad-core processor designed to transfer gigabits of data with almost zero CPU load. Robust processing power provides the best performance across all wired and wireless interfaces. An additional quad-core co-processor handles all Multi-Gig LAN-WAN traffic, ensuring the main processor is available for all other applications. High-speed simultaneous connections ensure you enjoy smoother ultra-HD 4K video streaming and gaming without interruptions.

Cutting-Edge Design
This next-generation router design conceals four high-performance antennas under its 'wings'. The antennas are optimally positioned for best WiFi performance, extending reliable and stronger WiFi coverage indoors and outdoors. The Nighthawk AX8 router is also wall-mountable. Features • Ultra-fast Wireless Speeds: 8-Stream WiFi with up to 1.2 + 4.8Gbps.
• More WiFi for More Devices: Uplink and downlink OFDMA substantially improves network capacity and efficiency, particularly when that traffic is created simultaneously.
• Up to Four Simultaneous WiFi Streams: 4-stream MU-MIMO enables streaming on up to four 1x1 devices at the same time.
• 160MHz Channel Support: Gigabit speeds for compatible mobile devices and laptops.
• Additional DFS Channels: For an interference-free experience.
• Powerful Processor: 64bit 1.8GHz quad-core processor ensures smooth 4K UHD streaming and gaming.
• Multi-Gig Internet Support: Aggregate two gigabit Ethernet ports to get multi-gig Internet speeds, where supported.
• Six Gigabit Ports: Connect more wired devices for faster file transfer and uninterrupted connections.
• Support All Current WiFi Devices: Backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac client devices.
