Description

The Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500 is a router for enthusiastic gamers. You can constantly control your network in this router's extensive Gaming Dashboard, allowing you to prioritize games when necessary. You can also keep track of how much bandwidth is lost to streaming and downloads. Thanks to the powerful Dual-Core processor, your network connection remains stable.
