For the most part, the R8000 uses the same interface as the original Nighthawk. Here we start with the Genie setup wizard.

The basic menu system for the X6 lays everything out in a simple manner.

Looking over the wireless menu, we find all three bands displayed on one page. Here you can change all the settings you would ever really need.
