4620Mbps - 1SS 60GHz 802.11ad (MCS12/16-QAM (3/4)),
1733Mbps - 4SS 5GHz 802.11ac (80MHz chan.),
600Mbps - 4SS 2.4GHz 802.11n (40MHz chan.) = 7000 Mbps class

Product page  • Support page

A new FCC entry (PY317400405) suggests that Netgear has removed the Bluetooth circuitry and antenna in more recently manufactured devices. See the Expedited Review letter.

Most of the information on this page was copied from the Netgear R9000 since the FCC ID is the same.
This router appears to be a feature-limited R9000 exclusively for Costco like the Netgear AC1450 was.
The only obvious change from the R9000 to this R8900 is the lack of non-standard 256-QAM support

for 2.4GHz 802.11n which reduces the maximum theoretical speed from 800Mbps to 600 Mbps.

Product features[edit]

  • X10 is industry’s fasted router for media streaming with Plex media server.
  • X10 with 802.11ac/ad Wi-Fi technology delivers ultra-smooth 4K streaming,
VR gaming and instant downloads.
  • With a powerful 1.7GHz Quad-core processor, 60GHz 11ad, and Quad-stream
architecture, you can enjoy combined wireless speeds of up to 7.2Gbps.
  • MU-MIMO supports simultaneous streaming, while 160 MHz doubles
WiFi speeds to mobile devices.
  • Four patent pending external active antennas amplify WiFi signals
to maximize range and throughput.
