    Pretty darn good!

    So far this is working more reliably than my old Arris SB8200. I was having issues with the Arris modem almost daily. Mainly I think it was some communication issues between my ISP/modem/router/extender. I got fed up and decided to buy this netgear modem. This netgear modem (Nighthawk 32x8 DOCSIS 3.1) has not randomly stopped talking to my router or decide to restart in the middle of daily activities. My Arris would constantly have these issues and more. The Netgear LED’s are no where near as bright as the Arris’s (annoyingly bright blue LED). Which I prefer “blacked out” or low brightness because I don’t necessarily hide my tech. The netgear modem stands tall but is reasonably slim I think. I do like the colors of this modem over others. Green LED lights, black casing with a matte grey brushed looking plate surrounding the lights. My max internet speeds are hitting the router so it’s doing the job right. I haven’t yet gone Gig but I’m a plan below pretty consistently at 450Mbps down and 22Mbps up. You will have to compliment the modem with a good router or mesh system. The reason I say this is because if you have a good modem but terrible routers you’re limiting your WiFi. A good modem with a good WiFi setup will ensure you are getting what you pay for in terms of internet speeds. Overall I would recommend this modem. I will be buying Netgear Modem’s in the future from now on.

    Great Modem Upgrade!

    I wanted to upgrade my modem so that I could remove the one provided by my Internet service provider and increase my network speeds with my router. This was a great choice and was fairly easy to setup! I haven't had any issues while gaming since the switch.

    Perfect match for my router and nat type open.

    Works well I had it for about 3 months almost and no issues with gaming I own a Xbox series x and s both which get a nat type open with the router I purchased from bestbuy also (ASUS ROG rapture gt-AX11000) gaming router . I will recommend it to anyone who owns a Xbox and that’s looking for a nat type open for them. Also gaming is smooth. I do a lot research before I buy so I know this was the perfect match for my small apartment.setup was a breeze u can use the app or a computer I prefer computer setup it’s more secure .speeds are more then my 1 gig from my provider.
