Product page  • Support page

This router is a feature-limited R8000P exclusively for Costco.

The Netgear Board ID for both is U12H359T00_NETGEAR (OEM: Foxconn).

Most of the information on this page was copied from the Netgear R8000P by way of

the Netgear R7900P since the FCC ID is probably the same.

The firmware downloads currently offered for the R7900P/R8000P and R7960P are different

and likely have different feature sets allowing the R7960P to support Circle by Disney.

Link aggregation was added to the R8000P (and R7900P?) in more recent firmware.

Changes from the R8000P to this R7960P include the removal of NitroQAM support
on one of the 5GHz radios which reduces the maximum speeds from 1625Mbps to
1300Mbps for 802.11ac and the replacement of NitroQAM with TurboQAM for
the 2.4GHz radio which reduces the maximum speed from 750Mbps to 600Mbps.
