Night Hawk x10 Setup

Are there any Netgear wireless controllers that are compatible with the R9000 — Nighthawk X10 AD7200?

I need to setup several in a buiding and would like to avoid having to manage them all individually if it's possible.

Re: Night Hawk x10 Setup

it sounds like you're trying to mix consumer gear and business equipment? 

I would stick to the business equipment designed for this or you'll have a cobbled together system that probably isn't going to function as it should.

It is a mixture for sure. It isn't for a real world solution. My employer wants to experiment with 802.11 AD. The night hawk is the only viable router that uses AD so my options are limited.

Re: Night Hawk x10 Setup

There aren't many devices that even support AD and most manufacturers are moving to AX instead of AD because AX is backwards compatible and broadcasts further. 

Buy an AX and an AD router to experiement with to show your employer. And compare costs. 

But again, you're using consumer gear and wanting a business wireless controller. I don't believe it'll work.
