Love it....Fast WIFI...Secure router with many options...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 buy!...Good deal....great Router with easy setup and great security...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.
Great Product...Its great!...I am highly impressed with the quality of Luma...Very easy set up, great security and strong signal....Over time, the Luma updates & learns and after a couple of days I was seeing impressive increases in wifi speed (up 20-30%), stability & the house has strong signal everywhere!...I had an issue with connecting to the modem provided by my Internet Service Provider, and Luma customer service was very responsive and helpful (which actually exposed how poor the customer service is from my ISP)....I now have one network throughout the house, all printers are available regardless of where I am, the coverage better than I have ever had and the system is stable.
Provide a strong Wi-Fi signal in every room and forget about buffering and dead zones with this Luma surround Wi-Fi system. The devices adapt to your home and automatically fine-tune their signal in real time to always offer peak performance and speed. A mobile app lets you set parental controls and pause access to the Internet during family time, and sharing your WiFi with visitors is simple, too-- no more remembering complex passwords, one tap and they’re good to go with Luma’s surround WiFi system.
Works well....Great Solution...I am highly impressed with the quality of Luma...Very easy set up, great security and strong signal....It could not be better, got the luma 3 pack, installed it too easy, used it for about 2 months now, it is perfect, never worry about dead spots or low speed....I love that it has parental controls ( a definite need with anyone who has kids over 3 and tablets) and the security monitoring 24/7 makes me feel extra safe that I am not being hacked!...I actually connected the first luma to an ethernet cord downstairs in the first floor, as that connects directly to the router upstairs, and I think it helped with downstairs coverage (as opposed to starting the 'mesh' from the upstairs router).
Get Wi-Fi in every room and forget about buffering and dead zones with Luma's Wi-Fi system.

Good unit...good bye...Very easy and secure wireless configuration....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.
Keep your Wi-Fi connection strong anywhere in the house with this NETGEAR router. Monitor your network with the NETGEAR genie app, keep track of your kids with parental controls, and use multiple devices simultaneously for downloading, gaming and more.
It is Good...I love it....This was an upgrade to more security....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.
5 stars....The best...Safe and secure....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).
Choose this NETGEAR router and receive high level wireless security, the ability to share photos, music and more, and a way to keep track of your kids’ activity online. Plus, with easy installation for tablets, smartphones and computers, you’ll be able to start enjoying Wi-Fi throughout your home right away.
Love it...Best biy...It has nice security features....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.
Best Yet...Love it!!!...Easy setup, fast and secure...Stress test (to the best of my ability) ------------------------------------------------- Back on May 13th I had the following concurrently running for 1 to 2 hours: -utorrent (1MB/s dl) -streaming Yankees game via Fox Sports Go app on my Nexus Player -streaming MIA vs TO on ESPN app (PC) -SFV PS4 Remote Play using best settings: 720p, high frame rate (PC, PS4 connected to wired LAN) -streaming episodes of Shadowhunters on Freeform app on Note 5 -streaming Always Sunny on...My Wi-Fi home network serves eighteen devices: three smart TV's; two streaming devices; an I-Pad; two I-Phones; an Android phone; two tablets; two laptops; Wi-Fi speaker; all-in-one printer; Wi-Fi home security system; Wi-Fi thermostat; and a Wi-Fi sewing machine, which is displayed as a 'hidden network'....Additionally you can run a Speed Test - supported browsers only The router settings allow you to configure and setup the following - Connectivity -Basic Settings, Internet Settings,Local Network, Advanced routing, VLAN and Administration Troubleshooting - Status, Diagnostics and Logs - Here you can see the devices that have assigned IP Addresses, Run Ping or Traceroute and reboot the router.

Wow !!!...Good one...Very easy to setup and secure....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.
Linksys EA6350-4A AC1200+ Dual-Band Smart Router: This router offers wireless speeds of up to 867Mbps so it can handle demanding tasks like video streaming and online gaming. The USB 3.0 port lets you connect a USB storage device and share files across your network.
I love it...Good range...There are some security settings and other features....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..
Good item...Love it!...Like the option of two secure lines...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
Your Wi-Fi network is busy downloading files, streaming media, browsing websites and much more. This NETGEAR router expands your coverage, so everyone can be online at once, without slowdown, lag or disruptions.
Very Fast...Good buy...Provides excellent signal, and better security....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.
It is ok...5 stars....Another great feature is the guest security setting....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.
Share, stream and access stored media across your network. This Belkin router provides steady and reliable Wi-Fi coverage, even while everyone in the house is online.
Worth it...Love it....I also like extra security....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.
