Software GUI & Performance
While The Nighthawk AX8 offers access by the usual URL from a web browser connected to the network, as well as a lightweight application called Netgear Genie, the device’s focus on wireless performance lead us to focus on the router's Nighthawk application, available from the App Store and Google Play. This application doesn’t give a lot of in-depth options but it allows the basics to be completed very easily.

We test both the WiFi and ethernet performance of the router below, at both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz on the WiFi tests. Please check the Test Setup & Methodology page for details.

These tests are designed to be particularly hard work to transfer, comprising of many small files. The router still handles them very well.

These tests, conversely to the Bastian transfer, is to test the theoretical maximum that the network is capable of. We see some incredibly fast transfers, far above what would reasonably be required in a home environment.
