New Nighthawk MK63 Affordable Mesh WiFi 6 Router Revealed

Brand New Netgear MK63 WiFi 6 Mesh Router Solution

Those looking for a mesh system that supports the new Wi-Fi6 (802.11ax) wireless standard have really been limited on the choice of devices on offer. Sure Mesh routers are a well-established thing, but factoring this faster and more useful form of wifi into new mesh router releases has been a little slower in development and only now at the end of 2019 have we started to see some releases in this area. One company with a HUGE profile in routers and networking equipment is Netgear, who was one of the first to release a WiFi6 mesh router solution, in the Netgear Orbi. However many users have seen just how much the Orbi mesh system costs (around £700 for home coverage) and have cooled off somewhat. Perhaps this is why Netgear has now developed the more affordable and still very feature-rich NightHawk MK63 router pack (M60 Router and MS60 Pods). The newly revealed Nighthawk Mesh WiFi 6 system allows you to enjoy advanced whole-home WiFi, designed to deliver smooth video streaming and fast online gaming to more devices at the same time. Experience the next generation of WiFi 6, perfect for medium to large homes up to 4,500sq.ft and internet speeds over 100Mbps. The Nighthawk Mesh System comes with a high-powered router and two satellites to provide you with broad WiFi coverage, so you can eliminate dead zones by easily placing satellites wherever needed. Set up in minutes and control your home’s WiFi with the Nighthawk App.

Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA)

Using the OFDMA1 feature of WiFi 6, the WiFi traffic is managed much more efficiently since data is transmitted from different devices concurrently, rather than having each device’s data wait for its turn. This results in efficient use of air-time reduced latency and increased bandwidth to add more devices to your network.

What are the Hardware Specifications of the Netgear NightHawk WiFi6 Mesh Router?

The hardware and software specifications of the MK63 Netgear Nighthawk WiFi6 Mesh router system (made up of a single MR60 Main router and MS60 Mesh Router pods) are very similar. Though you will connect to each of the routers throughout the mesh system as you move through them in your office or home, the hardware specifications of the individual MS60 pods are a little lighter in the hardware department.
