We were fascinated by Netgear’s WiFi 6E Nighthawk RAXE500 Router, But also this Refers to $ 600 and larger houses. Now Netgear has a cheaper alternative, the Night 400 Nighthawk RAXE300, designed for small homes that still need very fast (and futuristic) WiFi.
Like the RAXE500, tHe is a Nighthawk RAXE300 a Tri-band WiFi 6E router. Uses it New as well as standard 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands 6GHz One (which makes WiFi 6E the next generation Wi-Fi).
Traditionally, a tri-band router has two 5GHz channels and a 2.4GHz channel. The advantage of the Nighthawk RAXE300 is that it abandons the second channel it offers for the next-gen 6GHz band. Low Delay Netgear Says RAXE300 Offers a Combined YFi fi speeds up to 7.8 Gbps at home up to 2,500 sqft.
Nighthawk routers had previous generation compatible antennas that you can pivot depending on the layout of your home. But in its latest Nighthawk models, Netgear has installed antennas that are specifically optimized for home use. The integration also helps to eliminate the spider-like aesthetics of the Nighthawk lineup.
The RAXE300 supports up to eight Y’sFi Stream at once – two streams of 6GHz, four streams of 5GHz and two streams of 2.4GHz. There are four Ethernet ports on the back of the router for tethering consoles and computers, as well as a 2.5Gbps WAN port and a USB-C plug to connect something like an external hard drive.
The RAXE300 is not cheap for a Wi-Fi router, as it costs a lot to stay on the cutting edge, but it is at least a More affordable Wi-Fi 6E option In the market – for now.
