Great buy!...Good deal....Carries the signal through several walls easily...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!

Love it...Best biy...Connects to all my portable devices....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.

Love it....Fast WIFI...Have a large house, signal carries very well...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....After I installed a wireless surveillance system, the Apple AirPort Extreme and Express that I was using was not adequate for carrying the bandwidth over the 2.4 Ghz band....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.

best ever...I love it!...Went with this model because of the number of devices it could carry and the range extender....I start getting a strong Wi-Fi signal a block away from my house cleared all my connection problems all my devices work great at the same time more than one person can be using Wi-Fi Excelent router clear reception up to Crystal Clear on my 4K TV would recommend this router to anyone...called geek squad in about an hour he was able to locate the problem, it was not netgear but time warner's modem, he was able to get around the problem and this unit works great, I can even plug in the extender to an outside outlet and be covered in my entire yard....Great wifi all over the house, before I purchased this product I had lots of problems with my wifi, it was really slow and kept kicking me off my network, with this set up it fixed all my problems everything is super fast and its been over a month had no issues, I am a gamer and this has no lag at all...

It is ok...5 stars....This Router carries decent speeds, but has terrible wi-fi range....I am very happy with this purchase I have a great signal in both 5.0Ghz and 2.4Ghz I have seen complaints about 5.0Ghz but I have had no problems my router is in the basement and I can be anywhere in my house and get a great signal....It works OK in my house but every once in a while I have to close and reset my connection for it to reconnect to my internet.Sometimes its slow on streaming movies so they buffer for a while but mostly it works good....it has the one touch set up, on my tv and blue ray, I click a button for one touch set up of the router, go press the little button on the top of the router and all the settings are done, nice.

Great buy....No issue...This is the only comcast voip phone compatible modem that best buy carries....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.

Good unit...good bye...I was hoping this would carry evenly through the whole house....Easy inastalation...just follow the steps it was that easy...only once I got a puzzled for a second and that was when I tried to connect to it wirrelessly just after instaling the router... so what I did was reset my computer and my router and that did it every thing was working perfectly.......I was gonna get a belkin the cheapest one but the worker talked me out of it and told me belkin had tons of problems and said this was better, I usually dont believe what they say but for 10 bucks more I figured might as well....When running a speed test in these areas I was getting an average of 4 Mbps download speed and only 1 Mbps upload speeds and it is very common for me to lose the signal all together and then I have to unplug and re-plug in my router to get it to reset and work again.

Wow !!!...Good one...This new one works great and carries all my devices with no problem....Switched to Linksys EA6350-4A AC1200+ Dual-Band Smart Router after I bought a new Netgear and was not happy with product or support, and had to return item because it was not working right out of the box....The beamforming technology makes the router more reliable since it gives the router, improved range, minimal interference from other devices, fast network speeds, and stable Wi-Fi connection....My only problem is Belkin buying Linksys and changing the user interface, it made a lot more sense, was easy to navigate and most advanced users were well acquainted with the WRT interfaces.

Good item...Love it!...It carries good range through my house....my last one went for 6 years, or more, this one worked the best for getting to the far end of the house, all routers I tryed did not work has good, I did not see paying a lot of money for something that did not work any better!...It drops internet connection at times but not sure if it's the router or just my internet company's fault cos it usually only happens in the wee hours of the night and only for a brief time!...Got it as an alternative to wifi for the new Xbox, would probably work great if I could plug it into the walls but this old hous does not have the third prong plug, still works good usually

5 stars....The best...Great portable wireless device...I love this router, it let me go from my standard AT&T router at 54 Mbps, to 300-600 Mbps with the 2.4-5 Ghtz and the option to see who's on my network, the guest access, parental controls and speed, now I feel like I am not in dial up anymore plus ithas gigabit ports and USB acess also....After talking with someone in the store about this item, I reconfirmed the previous information that i had gathered on the Internet and a consumer guide purchasing magazine that I subscribe to about this product, and I can say now that I have it, that I really made a great purchase;good price, great quality, ease it to set up, what else can you ask for????...Features I found unique for a sub-$100 wireless router: Dual n-band - antennae allows for two distinct connections to the router (300 + 300 Mbps), ability to have two non-private SSID associated with the router (allowing people to connect to your router without a password or access to your internal network), and individual connection bandwidth limiting (something usually reserved for expensive routers or requiring a dedicated machine).

Love it!...It's Ok....Easy hook up and with the USB on back I just plugged in my portable hard drive and went to my network drive in windows 7 ....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.
I love it...Good range...The dead spots are gone now, and we have full coverage for all our portable devices....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..
All good....I like...Carries a good signal through my home ,...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 !...It's Ok...Makes my iPad 4 mini perfectly portable in my house....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.
