Love it...Best biy...Great Piece of Hardware...Signal strength is ridiculously excellent, it blasts through all my walls and the area where I got the lowest signal is now the same as if I connect the computer directly to the modem, I got full 25 - 25 mbps speeds after doing a speed test, before it was alternating a sad 1mbps-13 mbps and was not stable....I used to only use Apple Extreme routers but I have at least 20 of them out in the field and Apple must have done an update because I got calls from 6 customers in one day complaining of having to keep rebooting their Apple Extreme, so a buddy recommended this Nighthawk and I have installed about 5 of them so far and have had no issues....But... inexplicably, this weekend I lost my internet signal... I had internet coming into my modem, but not out of my router... followed all the troubleshooting steps to no avail... luckily, I had the 2 year replacement plan... took to back to Best Buy, got a replacement, plugged it in and all is fine again... No idea what might have happened to the first one.
This NETGEAR router beams strong Wi-Fi signals to every device in the house. This means your Wi-Fi connection can keep up with your household, even if everyone’s working and playing at the same time.
Worth it...Love it....The Netgear wasted a lot of my time...I am pretty good with installing new electronics or computer software and hardware so this was beyond aggravating for me to have something as simple as installing a router become this difficult....I have 20 plus devices on my network at all times I purchased this and it handles them all flawlessly, no lag, no drop in connection at all and it automatically assigns devices their own channel and power frequency and seperates the slow devices from the faster devices with smart connection feature....Good range (our router sits on top of a cabinet on the second floor at the far end of the house, and we still get a usable but weak signal 70 feet away at the other end of the house on the first floor (with the access point turned off)....So, imagine a router that has to get a signal to 5 iPads, 3 iPhones, 2 laptops, 1 desktop, a wifi camera, wifi printer, 2 wifi sound systems, 5 Directtv boxes, a Roku stick, Xbox One, 3 Nintendo 3DS's, Wii, smart bluray player, and various other asundery items such as Fitbits that are all off of Wifi typically half of those at a time.
Automatically connect every device in your home at the same time. This tri-band router offers accelerated Wi-Fi, so you can avoid breaks in streaming, lag while gaming, and interruptions while working, even when everyone's online at once.
Great !...It's Ok...This is a great piece of hardware!...I do not seem to see any speed gain (because speed really depends on the internet plan you subscribe to) but yes, it did extend my wi-fi range so now I can sit in my backyard and browse happy...like I am not in my mom's house on a dial-up connection anymore....I have had this router for 4 months now and I have never had an issue with this router, it's easy to install, saves me money on my time warner bill, but it worries me that dust can get into the little holes it has all around....This is a great modem, hardly ever loses signal and the signal is always strong, allows you to set up two different connections, a regular one for everyday Internet use and a 5G one for faster speed for downloading - watching movies and music etc.
802.11ac Dual Band GigabitThere's fast, faster, and then there's the AC1750.
Grab the highest cable speed currently available and AC WiFi in one smoking fast device. The AC1750 WiFi router and integrated DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem-with up to 680 Mbps-combine to deliver the ultimate in HD streaming, online gaming perfomance, multi-device connectivity, and works with all major cable ISPs.
5 stars....It's ok....Great hardware...This cable modem router provides strong Wifi signal for the first floor, but does not provide strong Wifi signal for the second floor (2 storage house with 2100 sqft) when I have this modem installed on the first floor....Turned out it Was not the problem... I decided to keep this unit because I like how small it was and how well it works (now that Comcast finally ran a new line to my place!) Good value, works great with multiple devices using WIFI....Great product not only was it 100% satisfactory it over delivered in almost all ways I could imagine this is a wonderful router and modem easy to install easy set up would recommend for anybody.
Enjoy fast downloads and more with this NETGEAR N600 C3700-100NAS dual-band wireless-N router, which delivers data transfer rates up to 300 Mbps + 300 Mbps for rapid performance. DLNA capability lets you stream media stored on compatible devices.
Fast WIFI...Very Fast...Good router with hardware issues...all these speed are great but you need this service from your internet service provider and your modem must be capable of these service, my wifi speed for my phone is just great around 150 to 200 mbps and with ethernet cable for my computers around 150 to 250 mbps the longest you have a gigabit ethernet card installed in your pc or a gigabit usb adatpter....After a few weeks of constant router re-boot and various calls to my provider with no solution to the problem, it was suggested I had too many wireless devices connected to my router, looking for a solution I began reading ratings and concluded this was the best router available without going bankrupt....The 4 antennas allow the signal to be targeted and provide a strong signal, which is nice if you have a weak spot in your place (you can look for weak spots by getting an app for your phone that checks wifi signal strength while you are walking around, I thought it was cool).
No matter where you are, bedroom to backyard, you’ll experience a stronger, faster connection with this tri-band NETGEAR router. Get rid of lag, freezing, and buffering while you game, stream and more on multiple devices.
Very Fast...Good buy...Very Solid Hardware, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Price!...File transfers within the local network (to a PC on a 1 GB wired connection) were noticeably faster, but honestly I had a 300 MHz connection on 802.11 N on the former router and was nowhere near saturating the available bandwidth....I was getting a message several times a day on my phone when I would check e-mails and such that said channel avoided poor connection from my Att wi-fi that was two rooms away in my Apt.-Frustrating and annoying and then you have to reconnect blah blah blah!...After you do that, it will take you to the GUI (interface) and all you have to do is just provide your current-existing network (Wi-fi) credentials and boom, the new network shows up in your devices with an (EXT) name after whatever the name of your current network is.
Your household demands a lot from your home network. With this Linksys router, you can depend on a strong Wi-Fi connection as you work and play online, even when everyone is using a different device. Plus, you can control the router from anywhere with the Smart Wi-Fi app.
not bad...It Works....Bread and butter hardware....With many internet providers offering you the ability to purchase your own router/modem to avoid paying additional rental fees for their equipment, this device pays for itself fairly fast....Fast easy to set up and made a huge difference in the speed and performance of all my accessorys totally recommend this product to Someone who is looking for a faster router...The only internet provider we have in the area is TWC, and I refuse to pay a monthly modem fee with them again, especially considering that I would be stuck paying more than what it is worth and I would have to keep resetting it!
Connect to the Web with this NETGEAR N300 C3000-100NAS router, which delivers data transfer speeds up to 300 Mbps via wireless-N for fast media streaming and online gaming. Two 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet ports allow easy wired connectivity.
Great buy....No issue...fine piece of hardware...When plugging in the cable the computers would get an IP address but after about 45 minutes to an hour the DHCP from the router would muck itself up and the computers would lose connectivity to the router and self assign their own IP address....this is a ok router not the best but ok only range is ok but not the best I think only router with a telephone port but woul get another one if another company sell one with telephone...Xfinity - Arris Touchstone Docsis 3.0 Cable Modem and Wireless Router with Telephony Adapter - Black works well, though I did have to by a signal booster so that I could use wifi upstairs.
Enhance your home network with this XFINITY ARRIS Touchstone TG862G/CT all-in-one cable modem, Wi-Fi router and telephony adapter that features a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem with speeds up to 300 Mbps.
All good....I like...Compatible with all hardware....have some expertise to set it up so the unit performs properly if you dont then dont waste your money in something that you dont know how to use your self on another note this product is very basic and easy to use I think, also make sure if you want to use the N or 5ghz set up make sure that your devices can support it if not then they will not work....Hi I buy this router to remplace with to rent modem or my provider device I call my provider and the pt in online very esay I install very fast it with all my devices It is very quick internet The set up is very fast The modem os beautiful and it works now very well...Please Note that This DOES work with Comcast Infinity, Comcast will tell you that you need their box for your services to work, but that is not the truth, you will however loose phone service, this unit does not have a phone jack, but I never used that function so it was no loss even though it was bundled.

Great buy!...Good deal....It is much faster (dual band wireless-n), has a reliable connection that is stronger over a greater distance, has a 4 port switch built in, and the hardware was easy to set up....Routers have improved greatly over the years but this wireless router was easy to set up, with great directions and offered some new features like a guest wireless network that I really love for visitors to my home....As a former networking guy I like to go in to the router through a browser and it made me go around installing the program which was a pain but other than that it's a really good home router even with multiple devices....Also, due to many medical issues I am home streaming TV - Movies on Netflix, SteamPix, OnDemand a lot on my TV using my BluRay or Wii or on my iPad 4 or iPad 5 and this router provides great speed!
With a strong Wi-Fi connection and reduced buffering, this Linksys router lets your household enjoy uninterrupted entertainment, downloading and more. Plus, you can keep track of your kids’ online activity with Linksys Connect parental control.
I love it...Good range...I have had no issues with the hardware or software aspects....What needs to be improved: - Status lights - currently there is a single light but it is difficult to gauge if there are any issues with connectivity, etc. solely by looking at it - Default guest network on - an inexperienced user may not realize that it is turned on, thereby making it vulnerable to attacks - Power connection that takes multiple outlet space - having a separate power brick with a standard plug would save outlet space....I received this product for free as part of Belkin's Friends + Family Program This wifi router was much bigger than my standard Uverse wifi router that it was replacing, but it definitely made a difference in the signal strength throughout (and outside) of my home....As an added bonus and in "keeping up with the joneses" Linksys now has a IOS app that lets you access and change the routers default features - one really neat feature is the ability from the app to control what devices need the greatest bandwidth.
With so many devices in use, your home network is busier than ever. This Linksys router can eliminate slowdown and interference by delivering Wi-Fi signals directly to each device, so everyone can listen to music, stream movies, and shop or game online at the same time..
Love it....Fast WIFI...Led lights indicated firmware or hardware connection....After I changed many Routers I asked for Best buy employee help in a few questions from him he understand very well how kind a router I need and he suggest NETGEAR R6400-100NAS router, which offers Wireless-AC technology and 3 high-powered antennas for reliable performance....After trying so many routers thru the years, I finally found the right one, and I and all my family is so happy with it, no problems streaming movies, uploading files, checking emails and Facebook, no problem now, and the best part is that we do not need a signal extender, this routers does everything, and the price was so right compare to other with the same strength but with a lot higher price....I am pretty tech savvy but by no means a guru on this stuff... I did not want to have to be an IT expert to get it operating.The router really works well, and although I still might need an extender to reach those nether-regions of the house, this was a good purchase and worthwhile upgrade from my "old school" unit.
Wirelessly network more than 12 devices in your home or office with this NETGEAR R6400-100NAS router, which offers Wireless-AC technology and 3 high-powered antennas for reliable performance. Integrated security measures help keep your network private.
Great Product....Amazing product....If the current hardware and software is any indication of the future experience (to be enabled by firmware updates), then there are exciting times ahead for all users....During setup if something went wrong, the Starry Station will let you know with a simple notification on the device while providing suggestions to the user to help get connected to the Internet (if all cables are properly connected, sometimes a simple reset of the main router or the Starry Station would get you connected)....Their Arris cable modem/wireless router does not broadcast a strong enough signal to cover my entire apartment but when I hooked up the Starry Station, the whole place was immediately and consistently within range of the wireless signal....It feels really great to have something that can actually hold them accountable, and it is also great to have a piece of hardware that will immediately let me know if there is something wrong with my connection.

Manage this router with a compatible app for iOS or Android, making checking up on your connections easy.

Solid unit...Nice router...Inside the attention grabbing and well designed outer retail display box - the hardware was well protected....The WRT3200 ACM router is extremely fast as well as reliable, I currently have 32 devices connected to this router as well as 4 NAS Servers for streaming movies, and 4 Nest Security camera running in HD, this router has handled everything with no issues what so ever, the WRT3200 ACM is an upgrade from the WRT1900 ACS, I was hestitant to spend the money on the 3200 since the 1900 ACS was still relatively new, but have to admit, the upgrade was worth it....You will have to connect with a cable to the router to finish the setup It has some nice features like multiple wifi bands as well as a guest band (for houseguest or a business) and remote access to your wifi network you can login from anywhere I did not notice a significant upgrade in speed or connection from my Verizon modem/router If you have an Ethernet cable modem only this would be a fine product to add wifi to your home....What I can tell you is that over 200 feet away outside that I could still connect and use the internet ( on my phone.) It could probably connect even further and this is indication that it will work well in larger homes ( my apartment is on the 2nd floor of brick building.) Overall - I do recommend this router if you have a lot of devices or if you are in a large home.

Two 5Ghz bands support both high-end gaming and low-end applications without compromising speed, and remote management lets you make adjustments from any location.

It is Good...I love it....The hardware is very solid and the extra upper vents dissipates heat properly....That is the major problem MU-MIMO will solve: the "MU" stands for multi-user; each client device capable of using this tech will take full advantage of your ISP's download speed /and/ will never suffer from de-prioritization if that is such a case as a result of multiple devices requesting packets from the router simultaneously....IPv6 - this router does support it, however it's a little bit raw, for example there is an ability to setup an IPv6 firewall rule to allow some traffic to your internal IPv6 network from the outside (for example to access your IP camera without setting up port forwarding), however there is no way of making sure that specific device will always be assigned with the specific IPv6 address (like DHCPv6 reservation)....Included documentation - you will get a printed quick start guide and a documentation CD with the very brief manual, I did not find it very useful, however online help in the management interface is very good, I would recommend looking at the online help if in doubt (it has a few quirks though and gives an impression like - do not touch anything unless you absolutely sure and called your ISP to verify :(/.
Your household wants to play, stream and work online all at once. With this Linksys router, you can do it all without buffering or other interruptions. Use the Smart Wi-Fi app to get started, control, and monitor your home network from anywhere.
