• 2x 1300 Mbps - 2x 3-stream 802.11ac device (433Mbps per stream),
450 Mbps - max. PHY rate for the 40MHz wide 2.4GHz channel = 3000 Mbps class

Nighthawk X6 - AC3000 Tri-Band Router

Product page  • Support page

This is yet another artificially limited Costco exclusive model.

In this case, the R7900 is a R8000 with 256QAM disabled
on the three stream 2.4GHz radio limiting its maximum
theoretical speed to 450Mbps instead of 600Mbps.

Also, the USB 2.0 port was removed for the R7900.

While not really represented well in the infobox, this is a tri-radio device

- all radios (2x 5GHz [an+ac], 1x 2.4GHz [bgn]) used are BCM43602
(FullMAC) is supported in the mainline Linux kernel by brcmfmac
