Netgear Nighthawk X6 Wireless Router

The product packaging for the X6 is quite extravagant. As you can see, the box employs a hologram like material around the 3.2Gbps marketing, which is sure to catch your eye in a retail setting.

The back of the box carries a few more marketing detail about the X6, along with use scenarios.

Scope of delivery includes an Ethernet cable, power adapter, and reading materials.

The X6 quite honestly is a massive router, slightly larger than the R7000, and around the same size as the WRT1900AC from Linksys.

Here we have deployed all six antennas on the unit.

The back of the router houses four gigabit LAN connections, next to the single WAN port. We also have a USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port.
