Nighthawk AX12 12-Stream AX6000 WiFi Router

Product page • Support page

This device went by the code name Leopard during development and in FCC documents.
It is likely to be released as the Netgear RAX120 (Nighthawk AX12) when it is ready for production.

WAN: 1x GbE, LAN: 4x GbE + 1x 5GbE (1G/2.5G/5G Multi-Gig)

FCC documents appear to show that this device is 8x8 for channel bandwidths up to 80MHz
but it drops down to 4x4:4 operation when using VHT80+80 or HE80+80 channel bandwidths.

The Aquantia LAN chip's ID is not clear. It is AQR11x but the third digit is not clear. Aquantia does not list any AQR11x parts on their website but an AQR112 has been spotted in the Everest Networks AP1004WRi and internet searches suggest that an AQR111 could exist.

DFS certification was added with a Class II Product Change request on 3/15/2019. The software/firmware version used in the tests was V1.0.0.65-DFS-20181121. The latest firmware available on the Netgear website is as of 3/15/2019.
