Would this router be the right one for my home?
This dual band router is a perfect addition for busy and large homes, providing you with fast and reliable Wi-Fi. Running on the second wave of AC technology, you are provided with wireless speeds of up to 800 Mbps on 2.4Ghz and 1,733Mbps on 5GHz. In addition, four gigabit 10/100/1000 LAN (Ethernet/RJ45) sockets ensure that all your wired devices are running at maximum efficiency. The Netgear Nighthawk X4S can not only be used with modems, but also with BT landline Internet service providers (ISPs) that require a DSL/RJ11 connection, for universal compatibility.

How does the Wave 2 AC technology improve wireless speeds and efficiency?
If your home router or your ISP provided modem router is just not up to your needs, this is a great router to look to as an upgrade. The AC2600 (800 + 1733) gives you two simultaneous bands to use, reducing interference and providing you with a faster dedicated band (5Ghz) you can use for streaming videos or gaming. A dynamic QoS built into the router helps to prioritise traffic for high data applications like Netflix streaming or gaming, to ensure minimal buffering and lag.

The beamforming technology used by the router helps to direct Wi-Fi signals in the direction of the wireless device, increasing Wi-Fi range and unnecessary interference. MU-MIMO technology also increases speeds when multiple devices are connected to the router by giving the router the ability to stream to up to three devices at the same time. This helps to improve efficiency, by reducing the need for devices to queue up before receiving more data.

What is the wired connection like?
If the wireless capabilities are not what you want for your gaming or steaming needs, then you can go for a wired connection, with four gigabit 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports available. With a dual core 1.4Ghz processer and gigabit Ethernet, you can be sure to receive quick responses when running heavy duty applications.

How can I backup and share media?
If you already have a dedicated storage device for backups you can connect it up to the Netgear D7800 to create a networked backup storage device. The router has two UBS 3.0 sockets and an e-SATA port, giving you plenty of options to add more devices. You can use the free ReadyShare Vault PC software to initiate automatic backups, and there is support for Time Machine for your Apple devices.

The Netgear Nighthawk X4S supports DLNA media streaming, which means you can access and play your media on your TV, game console or media player (as long as it is connected to the same network). Being iTunes compatible too means you can play music stored onto the networked USB device using AirPlay or Apple Remote. You can also securely access your home network and network drive from anywhere around the world with the VPN setting. Alternatively, you can create a customised Internet link for all your transfer needs with the personal FTP server feature.

What parental controls and app functionality do I get?
Easily set up parental controls allow you to restrict access to the Internet for your young children and add restrictions by device too. A guest network can be established, so you don’t need to disclose your personal home Wi-Fi password. Both of these features can be changed and setup through the Netgear Genie app. Performing speed tests, sharing music or videos, monitoring and adjusting the router can all be done through the Netgear Genie app, making it a perfect addition to the Netgear Nighthawk X4S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb modem router So. I bought the X4S to replace the BT home hub 6 as BTs router had rubbish WiFi stability and range and the modem connection was a little problematic. The x4s was a little tricky to set up but after play in around with the settings I got it all working. The broadband connectivity has been constant and stable, speeds slightly increased but it's the WiFi where this little beast comes into it's own. Being able to multiplex 4 5gh devices at a time without loss of speeds is superb. I run an android box and when streaming HD in one room I can stream my plex server in another without lagging. Good range and Gb Ethernet make it an all round excellent buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Netgear D7800 Great replacement for Sky 102 Black Router, although you still require to use wireshark to strapulate users name and password from sky router. From there you just follow the Netgear automated setup.

Can this be used as a direct replacement for BT Smart Hub 6 I have for my BT infinity fibre broadband & how easy is it to set up, I am currently on my 3rd hub 6 & am sick of how unreliable they are

Asked by: BigJ
Yes, I am pleased to advise this will be suitable with the homehub 6, although if you have a openreach modem type connection this would not be suitable.
