Arriving TODAY >> Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500 Router & Nighthawk S8000 Gaming and Streaming Switch

I finally pulled the trigger on the Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500 Router AND S8000 Nighthawk Gaming & Streaming Switch.  I got both as a bundle from Costco for the price of XR500.  I'm replacing the ASUS RT-AC5300.  Looking forward to getting the XR500 and S8000 set up and seeing whether or not I get a better gaming experience [using two Xbox One X gaming consoles].  No complaints about the Asus RT-AC5300.  It did a great job handling my home networking devices.  I'll be sure to provide my first impression once I have it set up and have a few days to see how it performs.  Smiley Happy


My Setup: Cable (200Mbps / 12 Mbps) > Modem (Netgear CM1000) > Router (Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500) > Switch (Netgear Nighthawk S8000 Gaming & Streaming Switch) (HP Pro Curve Switch x2 - J9449-60001)
Model: XR500| Nighthawk Pro Gaming Router, S8000| GS808E Nighthawk Gaming & Streaming Switch

YAY. Hope you will enjoy it. I like the 450, even though the 2.4Ghz radio needs some love. Smiley Frustrated
