NETGEAR AC3200 Nighthawk X6 Tri-Band WiFi Router

The next generation of wireless routers is here: Netgear is the first manufacturer to offer a tri-band router. This new class of device is designed for the Internet of Things (IoT)—that is, it's meant to handle the increasing number and variety of devices many of us have on our networks. The Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band WiFi Router (R8000) ($299) makes an impressive debut, deftly managing multiple wireless devices on a single network, though a few minor rough spots that turned up in my testing show that a firmware update may be in order in the near future.

We've only had dual-band routers until now, operating on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz band. The Nighthawk X6 offers a 2.4GHz band and two 5GHz bands. These dual 5GHz bands act as performance load balancers. More and more home networks have tablets, smartphones, and gaming consoles performing heavy-demand throughput tasks, such as streaming HD video. You'd normally want to assign those devices to the more-robust 5GHz band, but with so many gadgets competing for throughput, you'd soon saturate it.  The X6 automatically configures its two 5GHz bands on different channels, so you can connect more devices at 5GHz without the performance suffering
