The Nighthawk X6S AC3000 Router with breakthrough Tri-Band WiFi technology delivers a massive combined wireless speed of up to 3.0 Gbps. Tri-band WiFi provides three dedicated WiFi bands for optimized speeds for all WiFi devices. X6S optimizes WiFi performance by intelligently assigning every device to the fastest WiFi band possible and doing so allows devices to connect at their maximum speed.
