Nighthawk R7000 - power usage when WIFI turned off

Hi,

I was searching for the power usage of the R7000. I found an article (dutch) where they tested the power usage: 7,3W / 7,8W with 3 devices attached.

https://nl.hardware.info/reviews/5170/14/netgear-r7000-nighthawk-ac1900-review-nieuwe-eindbaas-testr...

 

Can't find the power usage from the R700 on this site. Does anyone know if the power usage drops if I turn of the WIFI?

 

I have too many WIFI signals and I want to change my network setup. I need this router to bring the netwerk signal to my attic (concrete walls don't work too good with WIFI signal). Therefore I am thinking to turn off the WIFI signal of this device, or replce this device with an simple bridge if that power usage is less. 

Best regards Roel.

Hi rree_nl,

 

Disabling the WiFi radio reduces the power consumption.
