Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
Traditional WiFi routers can stream data to only one device in the home at a time. When multiple devices are connected to the router, each device needs to take its turn, and then wait before receiving more data. This can lead to slower network and Internet speeds. Using Multi-User MIMO technology, NETGEAR routers can stream data to multiple devices simultaneously. With MU-MIMO, your WiFi network can deliver faster throughput to every MU-MIMO connected device. That means faster downloads and smoother streaming for your devices.

Beamforming+—For More Reliable Connections
Unlike typical WiFi routers that just blast the WiFi signals in all directions, with Beamforming+ the router and device communicate with each other, so the router can directly beam the WiFi signal to the device. Boosting speed, reliability, and range for both Implicit and Explicit 2.4 and 5GHz WiFi devices, the result is a stronger, faster, more reliable connection that is locked in even when the device is moved around the home. 
  • WiFi Signal Focus—Focuses signals from the wireless router to WiFi devices like smartphones, tablets & laptops
  • Automatic Signal Management—Checks with your device to keep WiFi signal at its optimal strength
  • Device Connections—Designed for home environments to support multiple WiFi device connections for highest quality
  • WiFi Coverage—Reduces dead spots, & boosts signal strength
  • Implicit and Explicit Beamforming boosts speed, reliability and range for both 2.4 and 5GHz WiFi—an industry first
