    This router has to be reset every month due to the computers and phones unable to connect to the 5Ghz wifi. It might be a technical issue but it's a issue non the less.

    Lights go out randomly on router. No change after firmware update and factory reset. Had the router only 13 hours and it rebooted 6 times.I want to replace it with same model, but I researched on google and it appears to be an issue for a few years.

    So unit arrived to replace a 3 year old NETGEAR router I had (had 4 total over time and loved them all before this one) once I installed it I could not get on the internet but could see the router on devices. I ended up calling customer support and after working with a person I could not fully understand what she was saying we did a bunch of things but after a hard reset we got it working. I had both 2.4 and 5.0 but the next day I lost the 5.0 and all that works is the 2.4, so reset again and got the 5.0 going again. I will see if it does it again tomorrow if so it is going back to best buy, will buy another brand and never go back to NETGEAR I would think they would still put out a quality product but it looks they have forgotten the main thing in business build quality products customers pay a higher price for that and expect it.

    Not even 6 months purchase anniversary and it keeps resetting. Looking online followed instructions set by Netgear and still resetting. On further research it looks like this is on going problem with their routers and should have been recalled. Can I get a refund on this, don't know.

    Stopped working after a month, tried resetting but had to call customer service and they walked me through a different reset procedure which worked.

    Had a tplink that had to be reset regularly and had terrible range. This router is fast and has no issues.

    Upgrade your home network to gigabit speeds.

    If you have several people using laptops, iPads, laptops, and tablet devices you might find streaming video is stuttering and your network often needs to be reset. Besides the basic speed enhancements it also has more internal memory for managing multiple wireless devices.

    After having a router that needed to be reset 2-3 times a day, this one has not been reset once. Very satisfied with purchase.

    The connection has been consistent, although it sometimes needs to be reset. The lights are super bright and quite annoying.

    Setup was fairly easy - slight hiccup hooking it up with my FiOS router, but that was an error on my part, and nothing a quick Reset could not solve. Otherwise smooth sailing so far.

    This is a great router for big family homes. It is able to handle the strain of multiple devices connecting, and I have not had any issues with it all. The only minor thing is that when you reset the router, it does take a few minutes to come back online.

    This is a great router and easy to set up. Replaced my old AC router and I get a great WiFi signal. I use it for gaming and sometimes I've noticed problems with connecting to my friends, but resetting it fixes the problem.

    Bought 2, 1st one was hard to setup. I had to update firmware and reset to factory twice to get it to work. 2nd one went up very easy as usual.

    Replaced an older Netgear router. Much more power and greater range. Occasionally must be reset after power surges.

    Previously had a 2-in-1 Netgear modem + wireless router provided by the cable company. After months of dealing with poor range, dropped signals and multiple resets I took the advice of a friend and dumped the 2-in-1 for this router paired with an Arris DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem. All I can say is that my home network now is twice as fast, I have greater range, and I have yet to need resetting of my network.

    This seems like a good router. The only complaint I have is when you reset it, it takes a few minutes for you to connect to the internet. My previous router would connect instantly.

    Router is fast and gives great service throughout the home. Problem setting it up until I reset the router in the back. After that, speed is great and no worries!

    Plug and Play, effectively. Plugged it into the wall, added the connection to my cable router, PC found the network, logged on and reset password. Done in minutes.
