Whether you're an avid or casual gamer, the Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR700 AD7200 Wireless Tri-Band Gigabit Router, provides a reliable wired and wireless internet connection for low-latency gaming and streaming. Minimize ping and maximize performance. With access to 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 60 GHz frequency bands, the XR700 uses Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and WiGig (802.11ad) to provide up to 7200 Mb/s. Prioritize your gaming devices through Quality of Service (QoS) options while using the Gaming Dashboard to monitor your bandwidth usage in real time. Use the Geo-Filter to reduce your lag by limiting the distance to game servers or other players. Connect to one of six Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports or use the 10-Gigabit SFP+ port for 10Gig internet connectivity (SFP+ module or DAC required, not included).
Take a break from gaming by accessing a PLEX media server to access your movies, TV shows, music, and photos. If you have your media saved on an external hard drive, you can share the contents by connecting via the USB port. The Nighthawk app makes it easy for you to set up your XR700 router while the OpenVPN Connect app provides a secure connection and remote access
Put your gaming traffic in a designated express lane with advanced Quality of Service, bypassing network congestion and reducing lag spikes, jumps and jitters. Make every millisecond count by using geo-filtering to connect to the closest servers and players so you can respond and dominate. Optimized to give you the lowest ping on Fortnight, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, OverWatch, PubG, CS: Go, and more...
- Geo-Filter: Your proximity, to the server you are connected to, can greatly affect your ping and lag. The Geo-filter helps you connect to the optimum server by allowing connection to only the servers that are in your range setting. No more spotty connections to servers hundreds of miles away. Keep your lag low and your servers close.
- Quality Of Service (QOS): Prioritize every aspect of your traffic. Allocate bandwidth by creating an express lane for your gaming devices. Prioritize devices with a drag and drop interface. Streaming 4k? Increase the bandwidth to your smart TV. Have an important teleconference call? Put more into your laptop. Have a competitive match? Allocate more to your gaming device. It’s a mouse click away and afterward, you can reset just as easy. The power is yours.
- Network Monitoring: Protect your network identity by connecting to a secure gaming VPN server. Find out instantly who’s hogging the bandwidth. Is it cat videos? 4K cord cutting? You can see, the percentage of your internet, all the devices in your network are using. Drill down and view that type of traffic, from social media, video, gaming etc. You can then make adjustments and prioritize if needed.
