Nighthawk® AX12 12-Stream AX6000 WiFi Router supports Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) - the latest WiFi standard with four times increased data capacities to handle today and tomorrow's growing home network.
Blazing-fast combined WiFi speeds up to 6Gbps and an AX optimized 64bit 2.2GHz quad-core processor powers smart home applications, ultra-smooth 4K UHD streaming, online gaming, and more.
AX WiFi features Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) that dramatically increases network capacity as compared to today's WiFi and reduces latency for a better WiFi experience making it ideal for a household with many WiFi devices.
Plus, eight high-performance antennas amplify WiFi signals for maximized range and reliable coverage. Nighthawk AX12 is also NETGEAR first home router with a 5Gig port.

Introducing Wi-Fi 6 - The New Standard of WiFi
What is Wi-Fi 6 (also known as AX WiFi)?
The demand for data is increasing faster than the capability of current WiFi standards.
This standard of WiFi provides faster speeds and a substantial increase in network capacity, allowing more devices to connect to the network at the same time. Wi-Fi 6 is especially ideal if you have more than 20 devices connected on one network.
More Efficient WiFi for More Devices
When multiple users simultaneously stream video, download, play games, or run their smart home appliances, the network loses efficiency and performance suffers.
Wi-Fi 6 is built to handle more wireless capacity for your growing home network.
