The Netgear NIghthawk tri-band AX6200 Wi-Fi 6 router has dropped to $199.99 at Costco. This deal does require a Costco membership to even see the price, but it's worth it. The same router is $330 at Amazon and even more in other places. The price is only good through the end of the day today, Sept. 26.

We keep an eye on all the best WI-Fi 6 routers, and this one from Netgear is no slouch. It's a tri-band router with Wi-Fi 6, so it is extremely fast and consistent. Wi-Fi 6 is one of the fastest Wi-Fi protocols in a while. It allows for streaming and binge watching uninterupted. You'll be able to participate in video calls or play video games with no problems. The router is also designed to work with most internet service providers with plans up to 2 Gbps.

The back of the router includes four Ethernet ports. This is important if there are certain devices that need to be hardwired instead of wireless, like a computer or a gaming console. Wireless is great for moving around the house or using a smartphone, but a dedicated gaming session requires a dedicated internet connection. The router also has a USB 3.0 port so you can connect a storage device to your network.

The router's wireless signal can cover up to 2,500 square feet. It also supports up to 40 devices without losing strength. Use Netgear's Nighthawk app for super easy setup, network management, and more. You can monitor data usage, and the built-in Bitdefender-powered cybersecurity protects everyone on your network from unwanted stuff like viruses and malware.
