Most homes these days have multiple WiFi devices running at the same time. As we surf, game, stream and network, our digitally active lifestyle has us constantly competing for bandwidth. If your WiFi bandwidth is getting throttled, it’s time check on when you last upgraded your router.

If you’re still using a router from 2012 chances are that you’re already frustrated with dropped connections, stuttering video and lag. WiFi performance of your network suffers drastically with just a few devices streaming video or downloading files at the same time. Get over your wireless woes and boost your network by upgrading to the next generation wireless standards that the new routers have to offer.

The new high-performance 802.11ac tri-band WiFi routers can efficiently handle multiple devices connected to a wireless network. With tri-band WiFi you enjoy the benefit of three wireless bands enabling more devices to connect on a network. The two features in your new router that can make a huge difference to your WiFi experience are MU-MIMO and Smart Connect. As opposed to SU-MIMO (Single User Multiple Input / Multiple Output), which sends information over your network to one device at a time, MU-MIMO which stands for Multi-user, Multiple Input/Multiple Output, allows routers and access points to send information to multiple devices within your network simultaneously. Smart Connect intelligently selects the fastest WiFi band for every device, ensuring that your devices are automatically connected to the best available band.

When you want the best WiFi performance even as you connect more devices to your network, a tri-band router is the way to go!

NETGEAR’s newest tri-band router, the Nighthawk X6S AC4000 (R8000P), not only has MU-MIMO technology, but also offers the fastest combined WiFi speed up to 4Gbps, and is powered by a powerful 64-bit, dual core 1.8GHz processor with three offload processors.
