The Best Netgear HK Routers For Your Home

Netgear makes it easy for you to have the smartest home in the neighbourhood, with the latest, fastest networking technology. Their range of easy-to-use products can help you stream movie night more often, watch almost anything on your tablet without buffering, check in on your home from your smartphone and store and protect all your family’s memories. Here are some of Netgear’s best routers for your home.

Best Overall: Netgear Orbi Whole Home Wi-Fi System

Netgear’s Orbi Mesh Wi-Fi is the company’s first specifically-made mesh router system, with a pair of units that act as a base station and a “satellite” unit to provide corner-to-corner coverage in up to a 5,000 square foot home. The system is really simple to set up via Netgear’s Orbi smartphone app, so you can get online within minutes of plugging it in.

The tri-band coverage offers lightning-fast performance, thanks to technologies like MU-MIMO and six internal antennas. The Orbi also works with Amazon Alexa voice commands and the smartphone application allows for paternal controls powered by Circle. There’s even the ability to set up guest Wi-Fi networks, as well as connect new devices.

Best Speed: Netgear Nighthawk RAX80 8-Stream AX6000 Wi-Fi 6 Router

If you’re looking to invest in a router that will keep you ahead of the technology curve, then you’ll want a router that supports Wi-Fi 6, the newest 802.11ax standard that not only offers better performance but also manages to large device networks much more efficiently. Even if your PCs and gaming consoles aren’t ready for Wi-Fi 6 yet, the RAX80 still provides up to 2,500 square feet of coverage for your 5GHz 802.11ac and older 2.4GHz devices with a throughput of up to 4.8Gbps and 1.2Gbps on each of its bands, respectively, thanks to the four antennas encased in its hawk-like wings.

With support for MU-MIMO and eight simultaneous 160MHz channels, plus a 64-bit 1.8GHz quad-core CPU, more devices can use maximum Wi-Fi speeds at the same time, so you don’t need to worry about your family members or roommates slowing down your connection.

Best for Gaming: Netgear Nighthawk XR500 Pro Gaming Router

One of the best-reviewed gaming routers on the market, Netgear’s Nighthawk XR500 is built specifically with gamers in mind. The hardware includes gaming-specific features such as QoS for prioritizing gaming devices on the network for the best possible signal and allocating any extra bandwidth to eliminate lag. A gaming dashboard helps to show real-time bandwidth use, so users can help minimize ping times, while a gaming VPN allows instant connection to any VPN client to maintain security and privacy.

Best Budget: Netgear Nighthawk R6700 Smart Wi-Fi Router

Compatible with 802.11ac, the Netgear Nighthawk R6700 provides speeds up to 450Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and up to 1,300Mbps on the 5GHz band. Capable of simultaneously supporting up to 12 devices at a time, the Nighthawk offers an incredibly easy setup with the company’s smartphone application. There, parents can find a slew of parental controls and options to create guest networks, as well as updating the router with the latest firmware for up to date security and performance.

The Nighthawk R6700 is also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice command usage, the Nighthawk has a dual-core processor inside that powers the hardware to help maintain steady performance. The three external high-performance antennas can be directed toward device locations (i.e. a desktop or television) for improved signal strength and range.

What to Look for in a Netgear Router

Ports

The point of a wireless router is to provide a wireless network connection, but there are a lot of cases where it’s better to plug a computer, game console, or another device into an Ethernet port. Count all of the devices that you want to connect via Ethernet, and look for a Netgear router that can accommodate your setup. The alternative is to invest in an additional Ethernet switch later on.

Multiple Antennas

Unless you live in a tiny studio apartment, you’re going to need a Netgear router that comes with multiple antennas. Three is enough for most houses and small businesses, but you’ll nee four or more if you have a big, multi-story house or a large office.

Multiple Bands

You can get by with a single-band router for most basic usage but look for a dual- or tri-band Netgear router if you want to connect a lot of devices at once. Some dual-band routers can provide a solid connection to up to 20 devices at once, and tri-band routers give you even more options.
