Netgear Launches New DSL-Ready Nighthawk Router
Netgear are bringing their CES Innovation Award-honored Nighthawk X8 Wi-Fi router back with a new model designed for “for families who want to upgrade their DSL subscriber experience with best-in-class technology.”
Like the original, this new DSL edition of the Nighthawk X8 WiFi Router offers the same industry-leading Tri-band, Quad-Stream performance and powerful 1.4GHz dual core processor, but now with an embedded DSL modem supporting ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ and VDSL/VDSL2 speeds.
It’s unique two-in-one design combines the WiFi Router and VDSL modem in a single unit reducing wiring hassles and with a smaller footprint so it can better blend into your home. Meanwhile, a Gigabit ethernet WAN port ensures seamless compatibility with cable and fiber modems.
According to Sandeep Harpalani, senior director of Netgear product marketing for Home Consumer Products, “Adding the Nighthawk X8 AC5300 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router to your home network is the easiest path to giving your internet service a performance boost. This best-in-class modem router combines the best DSL technology with the tri-band Quad stream, which is indispensable when multiple household members are streaming HD content or playing online games simultaneously.”
“The Nighthawk X8 opens the bandwidth floodgates, with up to four data streams on each of the three WiFi bands, so that everyone in your home can happily stream, game, surf, and share HD media, without noticing a blip in performance.”
The Netgear Nighthawk X8 AC5300 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router (D8500) is available now from major retailers in store and online at an RRP of AUD$799.99.
