Product information
Upgrade your WiFi to support AC WiFi devices with the Netgear Nighthawk X8 R8500 Wireless Cable & Fibre Router.

Speed

The R8500 keeps you connected with fast speeds up to 5.3 Gbps. Tri-band technology ensures that your whole home is covered, while seven wired Gigabit Ethernet connections offer an ideal solution to maintaining smooth HD gaming and video.

Quad Stream delivers up to four data streams per WiFi band while four active antennas and four internal antennas help to amplify and maximise the range of your network.

Smart Connect helps to automatically select the fastest WiFi band for every device you connect to the network, ensuring the best possible performance and speed even when there are multiple devices connected. Whether you are browsing the internet, streaming videos, gaming, working or socialising, the R8500 will operate seamlessly.

Security

With the possibility of implementing parental controls to limit access for kids and guests, you can remain in control. The R8500 also works to prevent phishing and spyware, as well as boasting SPI and NAT firewall options to keep you safe while you browse the web.

There is also VPN support to help you to connect to your home network when away from home, offering you even more freedom.

Easy to use

DLNA allows you to access and play your media on DLNA TVs, games consoles and media players wherever you are in the house. With a USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 port, you can also wirelessly access and share files on a USB hard drive or send documents and pictures to a USB printer.

Easy to install and featuring a Push 'N' Connect button for simple WiFi connections, the R8500 also includes the Netgear genie app; a dashboard to monitor, control and repair your home network from a smartphone, tablet or computer. This gives you added peace of mind and allows you remain in complete control.

For fast and reliable WiFi with connectivity options, consider the Netgear Nighthawk X8 R8500 Wireless Cable & Fibre Router.
