The high performance device optimizes usage of available bandwidth for supporting lag-free online gaming and smoother streaming of HD videos. It supports all Wi-Fi enabled devices ranging from smartphones, notebooks, tablets, smart TVs, gaming consoles, Blu-ray players and media servers.
Powered by a dual-core 1.7GHz processor, the router provides speeds upto 2.53Gbps on 802.11ac WiFi and is able to support upto 4 data streams in each band. This means that a user can stream a 4K HD video to one device and play a multiplayer video game on a different device at the same time without any hit to performance. The maximum throughput of the device is 1733Mbps on the 5GHz band and 800Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. The antennas come with Beamforming+ technology to provide coverage throughout large homes and even backyards.
The software for the Nighthawk has also been optimized to provide the best possible performance. Dynamic QoS technology reduces lag and buffering, VPN is supported for secure remote access to a users home network, ReadySHARE Vault automatically backs up Windows-based PCs on the network to a USB hard drive connected to the router and MyMedia helps users find or play stored media from anywhere on the network to DLNA-ready entertainment systems. The NETGEAR genie app makes it easy to install, monitor, control and repair the home network where the Nighthawk is present. The AC2600 has 5 Gigabit ethernet ports, 2 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports and 1 eSATA port which are more than sufficient to fulfill all connectivity needs.
