Netgear introduces Nighthawk X6 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Mesh Extender

Netgear has introduced the Nighthawk X6 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Mesh Extender, the EX7700. 

The EX7700 users patented Fastlane3 technology, with a dedicated 866Mbps 5GHz band for extending internet speeds.

Nighthawk X6 joins the existing family of Nighthawk Mesh extenders that employ a dedicated WiFi link to provide an uninterrupted flow of data between the primary router and the extender. MU-MIMO and Smart Connect ensure every device is assigned a fast Wi-Fi connection, according to Netgear. 

The latest Nighthawk Mesh extender expands Wi-Fi coverage up to an additional 18.5 square metres, with AC2200 WiFi speeds that combine to provide up to 2.2Gbps

“Netgear first introduced powerful Tri-band Wi-Fi mesh systems to our product range in 2016 with Orbi Whole Home Wi-Fi systems. We followed it up with Nighthawk Mesh Wi-Fi extenders that provided the mesh Wi-Fi capability without replacing your current Wi-Fi router,” said Sandeep Harpalani, Vice President of Product Management of Connected Home Products for Netgear.
