    Has Issues

    Posted
    DGemm

    For some reason this does not allow a few of my devices to connect without waiting a very long time. YouTube, Netflix, Pandora and other sites have an awful time connecting. On these devices I need to go to mobile data to connect then switch to wifi once launched or just start the connection and wait a good 30 or more seconds before an icon shows up , for example on youtube one or two thumbnails show up and maybe 20 seconds later the next one shows up or not at all. same with the app store. Netgear could not resolve issue. The problem is with my Samsung note 5, Kindle HD 8, and Vizio TV. These are 3 entirely different devices. No one can resolve this so if you have these devices you may want to look elsewhere. For the devices I have that work it is terrific except I need to reboot atleast once a week or the connection gets pretty slow.

    A better router than your ISP gave you

    I don't usually leave a review but I feel like having various opinions when buying a router is essential to getting the right one. So, I will start with the fact that I am, by no means, a networking expert. I am just someone who has had a computer since I was 10 and has learned all the run of the mill troubleshooting tricks. This router/modem has a nice design, it's light. It's not going to give you the full 300mbps speed but I'm sure the modem your ISP is giving you a lot less speed for the same money. My only gripe may be is that I've have had to reset it a few times already since purchase and too frequently the Internet is very laggy. I know the device I'm using is a factor. I get a faster speed on my iPad than I do on my note 4 or Asus laptop. So, there's that. All in all, good purchase on sale because it's better than getting hustled by your ISP. I'm not so sure I would pay full retail for it.

    I bought the Netgear C6300 a few months ago. It would disconnect when I am not home and never got re-connect. Actually, I cannot see my wireless!!! I called the NetGear support over and over again, no solution. They are trying to lure me to buy their third party support for $109. but this is new modem still in warranty!! I also called Time Warner, many times They sent many technician to my house to try to fix this issue. They did all possible thing then let use their modem. It is working perfectly. Then I went to BestBuy to get the new placement for my modem, It had the sane exact problem. It drops the wireless and stopped broadcasting. fortunately, I bought BestBuy 2 years warranty, I can get exchange a new modem DO NOT BUY THIS MODEM NETGEAR C6300

    This is a very good router modem it works fantastic the range is very high and the speed is amazing I had 50mb so I upgraded to 100mb with this modem router is even much better and fast, I'm using time warner so they rent the modem which was slow speed and range, so I decided to buy my own one so I don't pay them for rent and the modem they give you is not so good like this one, so is better to buy it your own one and if you want to have a good router modem I recommend this one a little more money than the other ones but you will be happy with it, you also can manage it from your pc smart phone and do a lot of things, I really like it so much I'm happy with it....

    Great Modem Decently Priced

    So I did some research on cable modems and this one seemed to cover everything I needed without being way too extreme in the hardware dept. I needed a solid WiFi connection with good range, multiple channels, good for streaming video and online gaming and a min DOCSIS 3. this was the best quality modem that I could find with out being too extreme in hardware and pricing. I don't host LAN games and I"m single so no need for an expensive large modem. This works awesome and love the beaming technology that keeps your phones and tablets connected no matter what room your in. It was definitely worth the money and if I do hold LAN games then it's as easy as adding the router for the extra connections and WiFI support. I've always trusted NetGear and their phone support is great when you need it.

    Best Router/Modem Ever!!

    My fiancee's family signed up with time warner and decided they would buy a modem and save on the $10/month rental fee. Their modem that you can rent is also a modem/router combo as well, just unsure which they use. In any way, whenever i purchase something at best buy, i always look at reviews on amazon, and price match there as well. This was the highest rated modem @ 680Mps, which is ridiculously fast. The service she signed up with is up to 100mps and is more than what they needed but at $200 why not buy something future proof. Setup was super easy, and being fairly thin, we can easily hide it behind the computer desk out of the way. When purhcasing anything for my home network, i prefer netgear! If you need a cable modem that functions as a wireless router as well, get this one!

    So I needed to get an upgraded Docsis 3.0 Modem to replace my old 2.0 one. I also have a big, solid house and had trouble with my signal at the back of the house unless I used an amplifier so I decided to replace my wireless router as well with something more powerful, hence this purchase. This product is probably the size of my old router and modem, combined, but it takes up less space since it stand vertically and it also means fewer wires. I get a full signal minus one bar at the back of the house without an amplifier now even though the signal has to go through roughly 4 or 5 walls and one floor and 65 feet to reach from the front of my second floor (product's location) to the TV by my treadmill on the ground floor at the back of the house.

    Not fully compatible with NETGEAR Genie

    Does not support advanced Parental Controls: I bought this because it has great reviews and Best-buy listed it as compatible with NETGEAR Genie. I have several kids and wanted the Parental Control function of the Genie. When I got home with it I noticed that the Genie app was not listed on the box so I called NETGEAR presales to verify that it would have this capability (I found a list of compatible routers and it was not one of them). The guy on the other end at first didn't seem to know the model of router I was referring to. Then he assured me that it would work and provide the PC capabilities. "IT DOES NOT" as I was informed by the knowledgeable tech support person I spoke to after I opened the box. Don't trust their presale tech support (I would give them -1 Star, although the 2nd girl was very helpful)

    My cable provider informed me that my old modem/router combo would no longer be supported. After lengthy research and reading multiple reviews, I decided on the NETGEAR AC1750 as the best replacement option based on price point and consumer reviews. I have only had it a month but I was very impressed with the ease of initial setup. It seems to work well as I have definitely had increased speed and service since bringing this online. I even had an issue with slow speeds about two weeks in (the cable provider's issue, not the modem) but NETGEAR customer support was knowledgeable and actually helpful. I did have to sign up and register the modem to find a telephone number to call otherwise they do everything through online support. Overall (and thus far) I am quite pleased with this purchase.

    I have not have any issues with this. It is nice having a modem and router in one piece instead of two separate components. The old router needed resetting multiple times a day; this one not even once yet. Setup was very easy and I did not have to call customer service like past modems (which could be improved quality from Time Warner, but it works). The older modem/router had a lower speed so Speedtest does show better speeds. I cannot say that I have noticed better speeds, but I have not had any lag issues as I typically have multiple wired and wireless devices going at once. I also no longer need a wireless backup on my main wired connection; meaning wired and wireless do no randomly and independently drop connections. The old gear was also Netgear so maybe the better speed and dual band has taken care of my issues.

    Fantastic Router/Modem Combo

    This piece of equipment was a breath of fresh air. I had been forced by AT&T to lease their garbage equipment for years. Year after year I was stuck with their bare bones wireless routers. I finally decided to dump them like a bad habit. I jumped over to Comcast and I could not be happier! This router/modem combo works flawlessly with their service. The upside is that I own the equipment and I am not having to pay a lease fee. Purchasing your own router typically means having the freedom to choose something with much higher performance and reliability. I have had only a couple issues since I purchased it. One was user error and the other was a weird glitch which required a simple push of the rest button and less than 5 minutes later everything was working again. Not enough of an issue to warrant removing a star.

    EXCELLENT MODEM ROUTER

    This is by far the best modem router I ever had. It runs dual band 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz of which gives you a lot of option when connecting. If you have surveillance cameras like me that runs 2.4ghz we know it is a nightmare because it kills your wifi connectivity. With this unit it eliminates the problem. Ultra fast as I am now able to maximize my internet wifi speed. It speeds up so far the fastest I have on 5.0ghz bandwith is 260mbps. Simply amazing. Connecting to your existing internet provider is a breeze as all you need to do like I am with Time Warner is to give them the MAC ID and just plug it in and the unit is up and running. Highly recommended. I have nothing to say much on the distance, yes it slows down the speed just like any modem/router but still the speed you get is more of what you need for.

    Stopped working on the same day I set it up. Shut itself off and then on again randomly. Then lost ability to connect to the internet entirely. When it had connected, it was slower than my 4 year old C3700. I pay for 100Mbps download and 10Mbps upload. I was getting 130/12 with the C3700 and then 85/5 with the C6300. After several tedious hours on the phone with Netgear support ("Have you turned it off then on again?") she finally confirmed that the device was defective. But Netgear won't refund, they only offer a replacement of the exact same device. And Best Buy wouldn't accept the return because it had been 16 days since it was delivered.

    Drops Wifi Randomly

    Posted
    michael

    Purchased March 3rd to replace another comcast modem that wasn't great. Had high expectations since this is supposedly a high end modem. after 3.5 months of perfect operation the modem drops both 5ghz and 2.4ghz wifi bands more than daily, the indicators stay lit showing they are still active, No device can "see" the networks, and the wifi on/off button on the modem stops working. A hard reset will temporarily solve it which takes 5-10 mins to finish. I called Netgear, they will not speak with me about he issue without paying for a "customer service membership" since it is more than 90 days old. 139$ to talk with them... insane.

    Fast but failed in 6 months

    The Netgear 3.0 DOCSIS modem/router is great if you love fast internet and has a pretty good range to cover my entire apartment. Unfortunately my device failed in 6 months and the support and RMA process is extremely painful. If you do elect to purchase this, I would recommend buying the BestBuy warranty over the Netgear warranty since it covered the device longer and you won't have to pay to ship back your device. Just walk into any store. The RMA process has been going on for now 3 days and they haven't even shipped the device. I had to pay $17 for them to ship me the device first so I can return ship my faulty equipment. Either way, you will have to pay if you device fails and the cost of not having internet is much worst.

    I originally was looking at cheaper models, but this particular unit came up multiple times and after more research, it seemed like it would be a great investment at the higher price point. After moving into my condo in early 2017, I purchased this unit for Xfinity high speed internet and its been amazingly good for two years straight. Plus, since I'm not paying the $10-12 a month on the rental charge for a modem, it basically pays for itself a little over a year later. Basically then, that $10-12 a month you're saving can now be put toward getting yourself a Netflix subscription or something similar - all in all, this is one of those things it pays to just bite the bullet and buy one yourself.

    Bought new 8/1/17, worked great for the first month or so until it started dropping WiFi connectivity and locking up multiple times a day. Logged in and changed some settings until it would finally stay working, took a week to resolve. Fast forward 6 months and now it is showing WiFi connectivity with no internet, which is false because the WiFi isn't truly connected since I can't log in. Had to do a hard reset and lose all my settings for it to work again. Googled some of the issues I've had and it turns out they're extremely common. Thumbs down, all I wanted to do was save some $$ by not being forced to rent the xFi modem. Junk. When it works it's lightning fast though.

    This is the 6th router that I've purchased, in a period of 6 years. Ive had the AC1750 for two months, and I can confidently say that it is the most reliable router I've ever owned. I havent had to force a reset. Not one single time. At last check, i have 22 devices connected to the router; 3 Xboxes, DirecTv, 2 Netflix enabled tvs, and all those iPads, pc's and iPhones. Not a single issue with this router. Setting it up was a snap- the admin interface is unique and easy to navigate, and let's you set up to four wifi access points. Plug in a usb drive, and you've instantly created your own cloud storage and media server that's easily accessed by everyone on your network. It's an attractive box and looks good on my shelf.

    Buyer's Remorse

    This cable modem has some good features which initially attracted me to it. It has WiFi and a 4 port switch. It's fast and mostly functions well. However, over time, I've discovered some limitations that I don't like. In no particular order... - It will not allow the user to set the time. If you live in an area that observes daylight savings time, you'll be out of luck at having the correct time for 1/2 of the year. - The modem is big and bulky, taking up a lot of desk space. - It has indicator lights on the front that require a legend to de-code. - It does not have a feature to allow the user to "turn off" the internet during certain time of the day (children's bed time anyone!?) - It is quite expensive compared to other modems.

    The NETGEAR AC1750 WiFi DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router has not consistently provided good Wifi. We often have to unplug the unit to reset it as the reset button hasn't corrected the problem. Download and upload speed are also often slow. I don't know if it's our ISP or the device, but we weren't having these problems before we switched from the ARRIS modem/router we were previously using. Disappointing given what we paid for the device. I do like that Netgear has a website where you can troubleshoot problems, but that's not very handy when your internet is not working! I might recommend this to a friend but given the yes or no options, I'd have to say "No" as opposed to 'maybe?'.
