Powerful amplifiers and four highperformance external antennas give you extreme WiFi connectivity throughout large homes & even backyards, while Beamforming focuses WiFi signals for better WiFi
range and performance.
Streaming: Enjoy Uninterrupted Streaming
Stop buffering and start enjoying uninterrupted streaming media for everyone in your
– Nighthawk X4S delivers the single fastest available WiFi connection to any one device, up to 1.73 Gbps, and a total of 2.53 Gbps. 160MHz support makes it easier to stream 4K content in pristine quality. With Quad Stream X4S Architecture you?ll enjoy the ability to stream multiple HD videos at the same time.
– Dynamic QoS prioritizes your WiFi bandwidth by application, such as Netflix as well as by device for smoother streaming.
– Stream your own media by connecting USB 3.0 or eSATA storage devices and access it from anywhere.
Mobile: Maximize Your Range For All Mobile Devices
– Double the bandwidth with 160MHz support and dramatically increase WiFi range for mobile devices with Quad Stream X4S Architecture.
– MU-MIMO gives you faster speeds with simultaneously streamed data for multiple devices. Beamforming boosts speed and range, while Dynamic QoS bandwidth prioritization optimizes your Internet speed for gaming and streaming.
– Powerful amplifiers and four high-performance external antennas give you greater WiFi range throughout large homes and even backyards. With EZ Mobile
– Connect on NETGEAR genie app, you can connect to WiFi securely by simply scanning a QR code.
Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
– Traditional WiFi 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 WiFi network can deliver faster throughput to every MU-MIMO connected device. That means faster downloads and smoother streaming for your devices.
Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS)
– If you like gaming and streaming videos, then you can benefit from Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS).
– 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.
– Dynamic QoS will also ensure that lower priority applications like file downloads will never get completely stopped.
Powerful Dual-Core 1.7GHz Processor for Faster Processing
– Basic WiFi routers use simple single-core processors to connect WiFi devices to the Internet.
– Nighthawk X4S delivers simultaneous dual band WiFi, Quad Stream performance on each band, Multi-User MIMO, 160MHz, has 5 Gigabit LAN ports, and 1 eSATA and dual USB 3.0 interfaces to connect external USB storage. Using a single-core processor would cause severe performance issues as various processes compete for CPU Power.
That’s why the X4S utilizes a powerful 1.7GHz dual-core processor to separate processes and prioritize high-performance WiFi connections to get maximum combined WiFi speeds of up to 2.53Gbps and still has room to handle advanced features such as Dynamic QoS.
Beamforming – For More Reliable Connections
– Netgear Genie – Home Networking Simplified
Unlike typical WiFi routers that just blast the WiFi signals in all directions, with
– Beamforming the router & device communicate with each other, so the router can directly beam the WiFi signal to the device. The result is a stronger, faster, more reliable connection that is locked in even when the device is moved around the home.
– Focuses WiFi signals from the wireless router to WiFi devices like smartphones, tablets & laptops
– Automatic signal management checks with your device to keep WiFi signal at its optimal strength
– Designed for home environments to support multiple WiFi device connections for highest quality
– Extends WiFi coverage, reduces deadpots, & boosts signal strength
– Implicit & Explicit Beamforming boosts speed, reliability & range for both 2.4 & 5GHz WiFi devices
– Netgear Genie – Home Networking Simplified
– NETGEAR genie makes getting the most out of your home network fun & easy.
– Installation is almost effortless – just by opening a browser, genie helps you setup your NETGEAR WiFi Router & connect all of your WiFi devices. Genie also allows you to easily monitor, connect & control your home network from a PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone. With NETGEAR genie you can share & stream music videos, diagnose & repair network issues, set up parental controls & more.
– Home network manager
– Remote access to manage your network away from home
– Makes any printer AirPrint compatible to print from an iPad or iPhone
