Netgear Nighthawk AX8 WiFi 6 mesh/extender (EAX80) review
Test scoreShow Context
- Wi-fi extender
The Nighthawk AX8 is an extremely expensive, high-end wi-fi extender that creates a mesh network in your home without connecting anything extra to your router. It costs more than some of the two node mesh networks we’ve tested, so it should be the best at least as good as those, otherwise there’s no point in buying it. See how it did in our reviews.What's included:
