Nighthawk X6S AC3600 Tri-Band WiFi Router
- Product page • Support page
This router is a feature-limited R8000P exclusively for Costco.
- The Netgear Board ID for both is U12H359T00_NETGEAR (OEM: Foxconn).
Most of the information on this page was copied from the Netgear R8000P by way of
- the Netgear R7900P since the FCC ID is probably the same.
The firmware downloads currently offered for the R7900P/R8000P and R7960P are different
- and likely have different feature sets allowing the R7960P to support Circle by Disney.
Link aggregation was added to the R8000P (and R7900P?) in more recent firmware.
- Changes from the R8000P to this R7960P include the removal of NitroQAM support
- on one of the 5GHz radios which reduces the maximum speeds from 1625Mbps to
- 1300Mbps for 802.11ac and the replacement of NitroQAM with TurboQAM for
- the 2.4GHz radio which reduces the maximum speed from 750Mbps to 600Mbps.
