Great buy....No issue...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.
Love it...Best biy...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.
very good...Rock Solid...I had issues working with my external storage, the Linksys created a Samba device which allowed mapping to the main drive but the Asus in Win 7 created another computer and winxp created mapped shares for each folder on the device....It is not simply plug and play, but the added security functions help to keep the network protected while increasing needed functionality....Finally upgraded as my N series router kept dropping and needing to be reset plus coverage was awful up to my master suite.
Step up your Internet surfing, HD streaming and gaming experiences with this Asus dual-band Gigabit router. The 802.11ac standard delivers concurrent dual-band 2.4GHZ/5GHz for ultrafast transfer speeds. This Asus dual-band Gigabit router optimizes coverage with AirRadar technology and three detachable high-powered antennas, and it includes built-in USB ports for file and printer sharing.
I love it...Good range...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..
Perfect fit...Its faster...I have 33 devices including multiple Rokus, Fire TVs, Apple TVs, phones, tablets, etc., with no apparent loss of bandwidth when using any combination of devices....I used it to connect to my very high speed internet on many products like my iPhone my laptop and my very expensive TV (5000$ TV) and it is amazing to see the difference on all the apps I use on my TV....You can only use the app on your smartphone to limit specific sites, which is a great feature, but it would be much easier if you were able to limit the times in the app, too.
Surf the web faster with this Linksys Mu-Mimo wireless router. Its next-gen Wi-Fi technology lets you connect multiple devices at speeds of up to 1.7 Gbps, and the included extender providers a stronger signal for uninterrupted video streaming and chat. Enable parental controls with the smart Wi-Fi app of this Linksys Mu-Mimo wireless router.
It is Good...I love it....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.
Love it!...It's Ok....With the assistance of a Best Buy employee I found this WiFi router that works well with newer bands, and compares about equally to much more expensive units....After a small amount of re-arranging connections between access point and router, Belkin has worked well and been reasonably stable A little finicky on recovery from occasional (short) cable company outages...My home networking needs are fairly basic...I require reliable 24 X 7 connectivity for my Internet camera, thermostats and VoIP phone, strong and steady streaming for my online video subscriptions, and plenty of access availability for family members' laptops, tablets and smartphones.
You demand a lot from your Wi-Fi network. With this Belkin router, everyone in the house will be able to watch shows, play games and use tablets, smartphones and Smart TVs at the same time, without lag or slowdown.
Good Deal!...Good range...I performed a firmware update which the device suggested but after that it would not work (no internet connection) but after a power cycle and waiting maybe 15 min, all was well and the speed of this blows the NETGEAR out of the water.......One thing I do like about this router's software is that I can disconnect a device using the software which is great to block kids' internet access....after multiple visits from them and eventually them giving me an upgraded combo that was for their "100mb" service in NYC????
Stream media, play games online, download files, and do it all at once on multiple devices. This ASUS router will keep everyone in the house connected without interruption. Plus, you can control your home network from anywhere with the ASUS router app.
Good router...Fast Router...If you are currently renting a modem from Comcast, I HIGHLY recommend you purchase this product so you do not need to pay monthly rental fee and also it yours when you cancel Comcast....Now that I had the C6250 up and running, I checked the Cable Connection section on Netgear genie to see that it had locked/bonded with 16 of the 16 channels for download and 4 of 4 channels for upload....It is possible that because the C7000 has 24 download channels compared to 16 download channels on the C6250, it may perform better if you have a faster internet plan.
This NETGEAR AC1600 C6250-100NAS router features dual-band Wireless-AC speeds up to 1600 Mbps for rapid streaming and reliable coverage. The CableLabs certified DOCSIS 3.0 modem works with Comcast XFINITY and other providers.

Good range...Great unit...So getting another Netgear was a no brainer, but instead of getting a modest upgrade, I decided to spend the big bucks on this Nighthawk because it is more future proof than other router offerings today....Purchased because of the reviews even though there were other choices and sales reps tried to up sale me, but I am glad I made the decision to stick with this one, it has proven to be excellent for my needs....I use this with my nest thermostats and protects as well as at least 12 other wifi devices and it works like a charm noticed significant increase in speeds while multiple devices are running great product

Love it....Fast WIFI...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.

Worth it...Love it....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.
Solid unit...Nice router...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.
