Packaging for the XR500 is completely redesigned with an edgy vibe. Centered we have an image of the router with features to the left.

The scope of delivery includes the power adapter, ethernet cable and antennas.

The design of the XR500 is a little more aggressive than past nighthawk platforms. It really reminds me of a cross between the F117 Nighthawk and F35 with its aggressive venting. That said, we have a full array of LEDs across the front along with two buttons up top for disabling Wi-Fi and WPS.

On the left side, you will find both USB 3.0 ports with plenty of space between them and around for connecting flash drives and other external storage.

On the backside, we have a LED switch to the far left followed by reset and the five gigabit Ethernet ports, the antenna SMA connections are numbered to the appropriate antenna. Closing things out on the far right we have power input at 12v 3.5A and a power on/off switch.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
