Broadcom BCM43XX is a huge router that packs a 1Ghz dual-core processor designed for a large home. It is a mid-range router that supports up to 450Mbps on the 2.4 GHz frequency bands and up to 1300Mbps in the 5Ghz frequency band. It measures 11.22 x 7.26 x 1.97 in (HWD) and weighs a little over 1.6 pounds. The BROADCOM BCM43XX is part of the Nighthawk series and uses the same residential design as the larger older brother, BROADCOM BCM43XX. BROADCOM BCM43XX is very sturdy and has a broad base with rubber feet so it won’t slip and glide all over the surface. Netgear’s Nighthawk router can be mounted on a wall if space is limited.
Netgear is using the same exterior design as the popular BROADCOM BCM43XX Nighthawk at BROADCOM BCM43XX. BROADCOM BCM43XX internal hardware components are identical to BROADCOM BCM43XX. The only difference is that BROADCOM BCM43XX comes with only one USB port 3.0 whereas BROADCOM BCM43XX has one front USB 3.0 and one 2.0 USB port on the back. I will be comparing BROADCOM BCM43XX to in this review and you can read my review of Netgear. It is not part of the Nighthawk series and only replaces the at the same price but with better performance.
Here I have the BROADCOM BCM43XX (right) and (left) side by side so you can see the difference between the two. The first thing you will notice is how shiny it is. Not only that but it is a dust magnet as you see it. Another thing you will notice is that the BROADCOM BCM43XX antenna is longer and thicker. Broadcom BCM43XX/ uses three external antennas and Beamforming + to increase range, extend coverage and reduce the dead point for large homes. The antennas on the are customizable but non-removable and the reason for that is to keep costs down. BROADCOM BCM43XX antennas are customizable and can also be removed.
BROADCOM BCM43XX has only one USB Port 3.0 front while has a second USB 2.0 on the back. On the front of the router, there are Wi-Fi and WPS buttons that can be turned on and off and just below the light indicator, you have a USB 3.0 port.
