NETGEAR EX8000 WiFi Repeater

If you’re looking for a small extender to carefully plug into a wall outlet, this won’t be love at first sight. The netgear ex8000 ac3000 is almost 9 inches tall and is about the same size as a mature router. Its vertical design makes it difficult to hide under a couch or bookshelf.

Best-in-class wifi repeater

However, the unusual size of the Nighthawk X6S EX8000 is evidenced by the contents inside. Most Wi-Fi extenders use a single radio to talk to your router and connected clients; this can cause constant contention

, which can significantly reduce effective bandwidth.

Netgear EX8000 Bandwidth

X6S uses a tri-band design, where a 2.4GHz radio is paired with two 5GHz radios, one of which handles backhaul communication with the router and the other transmits the extended network and connects to handle client traffic. The results speak for themselves

X6S leaves almost all other similar expanders behind. It ranks first in terms of 5 GHz throughput in all areas of the house

, and even managed to project the full bandwidth of a 100 Mbit/sec fiber-optic broadband connection on my back deck. In the 2.4 GHz band, its performance is not as good, but it is still stable and consistent.

Wifi speed

We’ve only seen this speed before in high-end mesh Wi-Fi setups, which makes sense, because the tri-band setup is exactly how advanced mesh systems work. The difference is that your current router serves as the base here,

which makes everything cheaper and easier.

That’s not to say that the excellent performance of the NETGEAR WiFi Repeater EX8000 is entirely due to tri-band technology. Proof of this is the cheaper Netgear X4S, which also features 3-band radio.

The smaller X6S sibling gave us some quick hits, but the signal obviously couldn’t get through bricks and pipes. With its larger and more powerful radio, the X6S is better able to extend powerful wireless connections to difficult areas.

Connectivity

We mentioned that NETGEAR WiFi Repeater EX8000 is the size of a router and looks very similar. There’s a series of eight LEDs on the front, allowing you to indicate network status and activity at a glance, and four Gigabit Ethernet ports on the back, so you can distribute full bandwidth to the entire office

. Or connect your smart TV and game console.

Unexpectedly, there’s also a USB 2 port that you can use to share files and folders across your home network. It supports an impressive variety of file systems, with full read/write access to NTFS, Ext4 and HFS+. You can even set up user accounts and restrict access to specific shares

, and enable the built-in ReadyDLNA server, so media devices on your network can stream directly from USB shares.

Netgear EX800 Configuration

All of these are managed from a web interface, which is basically the same as what you see on a Netgear router. To access it, I simply navigated to mywifiext.com from anywhere on the extended network. This will open a multi-page portal loaded with technical information

You can audit and block connected clients, set up access plans, configure WPS PIN access to avoid the hassle of the physical WPS button on the back, customize IP address settings, and backup and restore your settings

Price and conclusion

With an unmatched combination of speed and features, netgear ex 8000 is currently the best Wi-Fi extender on the market

, but it is also the most expensive. If you only need to fill the signal at a remote location at home, you can save a lot of money by choosing Tenda A15 or TP-Link RE365.

However, if you are looking for fast file transfer and a lot of features, then the extra expense of X6S is obvious, it gives you speed and mesh coverage at basically the same price as Devoro’s Magic 1 kit. Yes, when it comes to extenders, it’s a bit big and boxy, but long after you stop worrying about its looks, you’ll appreciate its performance
