NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S Features
The main feature of this new NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S router is that it has simultaneous dual band with AC2600 Wi-Fi. In the 2.4GHz band we can achieve up to 800Mbps of speed thanks to its four antennas in MIMO 4T4R configuration. Regarding the 5GHz band, we can achieve up to 1,733Mbps thanks to its four antennas in MIMO 4T4R configuration and the use of 80MHz of channel width. This equipment is Wi-Fi AC Wave 2, so it supports a channel width of 160MHz to allow devices with two antennas to be able to achieve up to 1,733Mbps of speed, since when we activate 160MHz this router works in MIMO configuration 2T2R. Other features of this router are that it has MU-MIMO technology to fully optimize the wireless network, Beamforming + to focus the Wi-Fi signal on wireless clients, and it also has a physical WPS button to connect easily and quickly to the computer. .
This new NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S router features one Gigabit Ethernet port for the WAN, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, and NAT acceleration. Thanks to its hardware we can achieve a high LAN-WAN speed, in addition, it supports VLANs to be able to use FTTH connections such as Movistar, Vodafone, Jazztel and Orange among other operators.
One of the features that we liked the most about this NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S router is that it has 2 high-performance USB 3.0 ports, and thanks to its powerful CPU we will achieve great performance. In addition, it also has an eSATA port that will allow us to connect hard drives through this data interface.
Regarding firmware, NETGEAR has in the firmware a basic configuration mode ideal for inexperienced users in networks that do not need many configuration parameters, and also an advanced mode so that more expert users can configure any router parameter in detail. Something that we would like to highlight is all the additional software that the firmware incorporates, such as ReadySHARE to share files from a disk connected via USB and eSATA in Samba, FTP and DLNA, it also has a BitTorrent download manager, eMule and direct downloads. Ideal for getting the most out of this high-end router.
