Nighthawk X8 AC5000 Smart WiFi Router

The Next Wave in WiFi

The Nighthawk X8 AC5000 Router is the next wave in WiFi. Tri-Band WiFi and Quad Stream performance boosts X8’s combined wireless speeds to up to 5.0Gbps. Four external Active Antennas plus 4 internal antennas amplify WiFi range. Six gigabit Ethernet ports means even more wired devices can connect.

Tri-Band WiFi

Nighthawk X8 not only delivers total WiFi speeds of up to 5 Gbps, but also uses Smart Connect to ensure all of your WiFi devices like smart phones, tablets, and laptops connect at the fastest possible speed. Load Balancing distributes WiFi devices amongst the WiFi bands for the most effective use of the 5GHz WiFi bands.

Quad Stream WiFi with Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)

Using Multi-User MIMO technology, the X8 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 4K streaming for your devices.

Active Antennas

With four internal antennas and four external antennas, the X8 will enhance weak signals and reduce interference. Active Antennas help improve WiFi performance by amplifying WiFi signals in the antenna itself, this avoids signal loss during transmission and noise insertion from the router board.

Powerful Dual Core 1.4GHz processor

The X8 utilizes a powerful 1.4GHz dual core processor to separate processes and prioritize high-performance WiFi connections to get maximum combined WiFi speeds of up to 5 Gbps. Using a single core processor would cause severe performance issues as various processes compete for CPU power.

Twice the Wired Speed

Six Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports allows you to connect even more wired devices. Two of six Gigabit Ethernet ports can be aggregated to double the connection speed to a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device for 4K HD streaming or fast backups of multiple WiFi devices simultaneously.
