Updating firmware on netgear router
The physical setup process required less than a minute of my time, like most of Netgear’s newest routers in the R6000 series.
I first connected the antennas, plugged in the WAN cable and the power cable and it turned on immediately.
The USB port allows the Nighthawk to access external storage at speeds approaching 5 Gbit/s – ten times the speed of USB 2.0.
The Nighthawk’s sleek design, quite obviously, apes the recently retired F-117 Nighthawk, a radar resistant “stealth” attack aircraft in the United States military inventory.It automatically performed a local address IP change, which prevented a conflict with my Internet service provider.Finally, I opened my browser and accessed Netgear’s Net Genie application.While 2.4GHz offers better range, 5GHz provides better speed, particularly for streaming videos and other online content.All dual-band routers offer two separate SSIDs, one for 2.4GHz and one for 5GHz.
