If you are absolutely need Today, the new router on the market has many great options. However, if your current device is good enough and functional, I advise you to keep the upgrade. Why? There is a big change coming to the wireless Internet – 802.11ak, also known as "Vi-Fi 6." Not only will these new routers potentially offer higher speeds and bandwidth, but some will ultimately offer VPA3 – the latest and greatest safety standard.
Today, NETGEAR announces two upcoming Vi-Fi 6 routers – Nighthavk AKS8 and AKS12. Not only is every model doll met with great specs, but still have a great design. They almost look like they were wrapped with shark protrusions on the right and left. Are there too many homes? Absolutely. However, if you like new and great things, and you are ready to spend the most dollars to be an early adopter, you would want to look at it.

"The Vi-Fi 6 router can significantly improve the efficiency of your existing network and also helps existing Wi-Fi devices get faster speeds. Enjoy a better connectivity to home entertainment while streaming 4K, Ultra-HD movies, downloading large files, and continually using more smart devices with maximum ViFi coverage. AKS ViFi supports all current Wi-Fi devices and is compatible with Vi-Fi 5 and older ViFi devices, "says NETGEAR.
The company further says: "With more Vi-Fi streams, increased bandwidth and faster encoding via MU-MIMO and 1024 KAM, AKS ViFi provides much faster speed, AKS ViFi also provides a greater range than the previous generation ViFi standards. Your pool or skippers from your gardening office – it's now easier than ever to maintain fast and reliable connections across larger spaces. "
NETGEAR shares the following information on both the new 802.11ak Nighthavk router below. You can click on the links to find out more.
