Improved Capacity for Smart Home Automation

Improved Capacity for Smart Home Automation

Your WiFi won’t slow you down, even when multiple devices in your home are uploading videos, surfing the web and sending text messages. Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) increases network capacity and efficiency through smarter traffic scheduling to manage all high-bandwidth activities while simultaneously supporting all your smart home devices. WiFi traffic is managed much more efficiently, transmitting data from different devices concurrently, rather than having each device’s data wait for its turn.

12-Streams WiFi - Improved Efficiency, Reduced Latency

12-Streams WiFi - Improved Efficiency, Reduced Latency

Twelve WiFi streams—that is, four in the 2.4GHz band and eight in the 5GHz band— enables the router to send and receive more data from the devices. Essentially, more spatial streams means more available bandwidth and less congestion for all the devices in the WiFi network. Nighthawk AX12 also supports sending up to eight multi-user MIMO transmissions at a time—four more than the existing Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) routers. Maintain fast and reliable wireless connections throughout your home, even when multiple devices are concurrently streaming high-definition content.

Stronger Security for your Home Network with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED WPA3

Stronger Security for your Home Network with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED WPA3

Nighthawk AX12 supports WPA3 , the latest WiFi security protocol with new capabilities to enhance WiFi protection for your home network. Features such as improved password-based authentication and stronger encryption provide high-level of security for all connected devices on your network.

Stream, Game and Work Without Interruptions

Stream, Game and Work Without Interruptions

64bit 2.2GHz quad-core processor is the ultra-fast processor for your home router, providing smoother 4K UHD streaming and online/VR gaming, as well as a stronger, more reliable WiFi experience. This powerful processor is optimized for AX, ensuring speed and performance for more smart home devices and high-speed applications.

New Multi-Gigabit Wired Speeds

New Multi-Gigabit Wired Speeds

Let your devices run at their highest speed over existing wiring. The multi-gigabit Ethernet port on AX12 gives you five times faster speeds than the wired speed of a typical Gigabit port. Your network attached storage (NAS) devices, switches, and other devices capable of 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps speeds can now operate at full capacity. Use the four gigabit Ethernet LAN ports to connect more wired devices for faster file transfer and uninterrupted connections. Combine two gigabit Ethernet ports to further improve the aggregated file transfer speed. The Nighthawk AX12 is NETGEAR's first home router offering Multi-Gig speeds with 5G/2.5G/1G Multi-Gig Ethernet LAN port.
