The Netgear Nighthawk AX6 Wi-Fi 6 router has dropped to $239.99 on Amazon. This router normally sells for $300, and it has never varied from that price at Amazon before. Today's drop is not only a new low but the first direct discount we've seen. You'll find the same router is still going for $300 or so at other retailers like Best Buy.
Wi-Fi 6 is the newest wireless protocol, and if you have a router that's not using it, you should. You might pay a little more but the jump in wireless speeds is well worth it. We even include Netgear's router in our roundup of the best Wi-Fi 6 routers because of its ability to connect a large number of devices without ever slowing down.
The Nighthawk is large enough and powerful enough to cover a medium-to-large size home with wireless. It can blanket up to 2,000 square feet in beautiful speedy Wi-Fi. The AX5400 speeds include dual-band Wi-Fi at 600 and 4,800 Mbps. Plus, it has six simultaneous streams for a larger capacity and the capabilitity to support even more devices on one Wi-Fi network.
The back of the router includes four Gigabit Ethernet ports so you can hardwire computers, gaming consoles, and more. The router is also loaded with a ton of advanced features including Beamforming+, Smart Connect, and OFDMA. All of these are designed to keep all your Wi-Fi devices connected, provide the best bandwidth, and help the router navigate between them with little effort. You can also connect the router to your smart home ecosystem and control it with Amazon Alexa.
Use the USB 3.0 port to share a storage device or create a personal cloud you can access from anywhere. The encryptions include WPA2 and WPA3 wireless security protocols. You can also create guest Wi-Fi access for visitors, and Alexa can actually help with that, too.
