I lose a lot of battles because of lag or delays in interacting on my computer. OK, although that’s not true, Netgear comes to the rescue of people who have this problem. Today, it launches the Nighthawk AXE3000 WiFi 6E USB 3.0 Adapter (A8000) to upgrade notebooks and desktop PCs to the fastest WiFi available.
The new adapter is the first WiFi 6E USB 3.0 adapter that allows users to simply plug in and enjoy the speed, power and performance of WiFi 6E, the company said.
It’s for PC users who want to take advantage of the new 6GHz band, an express lane for WiFi 6E devices. The Netgear Nighthawk A8000 is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to boost speeds and upgrade to the latest Wi-Fi specs without upgrading their PC.
For gamers and non-gamers alike, this first-of-its-kind adapter from Netgear provides a faster, more reliable connection to their home Wi-Fi network directly through its USB port. The A8000 delivers maximum WiFi speed to customers using it with the company’s premium WiFi 6E routers and mesh systems, including the Orbi 960 Series, Nighthawk RAXE300 and RAXE500.
“As an industry leader consistently delivering first-to-market technologies to maximize connected experiences, we are proud to introduce the first-ever WiFi 6E USB 3.0 adapter,” said David Henry, president of Connected Home Products and Services at Netgear, in a statement. “Netgear’s Nighthawk A8000 provides an easy and cost-effective way to bring the latest Wi-Fi standard to both modern and older computers.”
Netgear’s proprietary high-efficiency antenna design, which also flips open for better reception, provides omni-directional coverage and low loss across all three Wi-Fi bands. The compact holder makes it easy to mount the adapter in and around the computer to find the strongest possible signal.
Plug in the A8000 and access the exclusive 6GHz wireless express lane for 4.6x more speed, capacity and bandwidth over WiFi 5.
The A8000 automatically detects your router’s Wi-Fi technology and connects to the correct band — 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, or 6 GHz — for next-level speed and performance. Smoothly transfer data, stream HD video and enjoy less lag while gaming with connections up to 600 Mbps on 2.4 GHz, 1200 Mbps on 5 GHz and 1200 Mbps on 6 GHz. It will be available this month and retails for $90.
