    terrible product

    I was excited to purchase this as an upgrade to my older, slower router. I read the reviews, researched some other products, and decided I wanted this guy with my Time Warner/Spectrum service. It worked great, for about 2 months. Suddenly, the wifi would drop out for no reason. I had my Xbox hardwired into it, and never lost connection, so it wasn't the service that was the issue. I had to reset the router at least 5 times a day before I finally ditched it. As soon as it reset, I had wifi again, so I really think it was the router and not the service provider. I'm really disappointed with this product.

    Amazon reviews convinced me to return un-opened

    I read the Amazon reviews on this item and I was convinced to return it, box unopened. Many reviews said this would only work for about six months before "burning up" due to overheating. Best Buy does not have a protection for this, should it happen to a router I purchased from them (confirmed by Best Buy customer service in-store when I returned this item). Since the Best Buy return policy does not extend past the period that this item has been said to "fry out" due to overheating, it was not worth the risk for me...item was about $150 on sale. I will keep looking for another router. However, if Best Buy can provide some insight, or offer a plan/guarantee that would cover a known issue, I would like to know.

    Was pigeon-holed into this particular modem/router based on the specific needs of Time Warner Cable and a limited time table. This product is average at best, with the Wi-Fi being it's greatest weakness. Modem and router perform as expected for hardware at this price point, and frankly, it's hard to screw that up with today's tech. Biggest gripe is the Wi-Fi, as it has weak in building penetration at best, and reliability is close to nothing. Requires restart regularly to maintain service, despite firmware update and standard maintenance. If you're using it to route to a Linksys radio, go ahead...but if you're looking for whole house wireless from this thing, move along and spend a buck.

    I went to Best Buy and upon recommendation of the salesperson I bought two different Netgear units to replace my old rented comcast modem. I really just wanted to have stability in our connection, the old modem was fine but would randomly cut in and out of service. Fingers crossed we haven't had any issues with it and it has been up and running almost 3 weeks now. My wife works from home so it was essential that we have a reliable modem and relatively fast. I bought this model and next model down. Even though this unit was $199 as compared to $110 for other one, we choose this one because it claims it can support more devices and also support future technology in internet provider technology, some DIC or something. Very happy and always Best Buy meet my expectations. Thanks.

    I needed a replacement for a Comcast modem / router combo on a Saturday night. Ran to the local BB and picked this up. It took Comcast about an hour to "authenticate" it, but it's been running like a champ ever since. The only issue is that when I'm connecting with my 2 AppleTVs, my iPad, iPhone, the iMac and all the other stuff in my house, it sometimes gets a little slow, but I am *FAR* more likely to blame Comcast's network, or local network congestion for the slowdown than this modem. Usually, all it takes to fix it is a cold boot, but again, Comcast's fault, not the modem's. Setup was a breeze, love the remote stuff, and so far, so great.

    Fantastic Dual Band MODEM/Router

    Excellent MODEM/Router combo that I'm more than happy with. If you don't know what a dual band router is, it basically allows you to have two wi-fi networks that operate on two different bands. And while some dual band routers will only transmit on one band at a time, this will transmit on both bands at the same time. We recently cut cable and rely almost solely on our internet for watching movies or shows, but this has held up very well so far - we have game consoles for gaming/streaming on one band and laptops/tablets/phones on the other. The limiting factor will be your internet speed because, more than likely, this combo will handle well over what your service provider can give you. (I believe it can do over 300 mbps on each band simultaneously.)

    We had an office built in part of our garage and were worried about our internet connection. Turns out, internet was NOT great. A lot of issues with it just shutting down and not available. We walk into best buy for another reason one day and ended up talking to someone about this. I don't know much about this stuff at all, but they explained it pretty well. The modem that came with our Spectrum cable turned out to be REAL basic... It can't handle all our devices and streaming. My husband decided to purchase and installed right away. Internet was SO much faster and didn't just stop working! The only reason I gave 4 stars is one weekend our internet was down...and we really could not pin point if it was this item or Spectrum?

    Upgraded because my TV and internet provider said I wouldn't be able to get the full experience of what they were providing without a DOCSIS 3.0 modem,- and to avoid having to pay monthly rental of the modem they were providing. Had a separate Linksys modem and Linksys router originally which were perfectly fine. This Netgear device is now a modem and router combined. Can't tell much difference between the two. If you don't know what you're needs are, always ask the sales rep. The type of modem/router you buy should correspond to the number of devices that require it,- TVs, cellphones, alarm systems, tablets, PCs...and the size of your home should also be considered.

    Great Modem with built in router

    I love this modem with built in wireless router, my favorite feature is the ability to setup multiple networks. I have my wife's work computer and our tv running on the 5.0 ghz network then we use a separate 2.4 ghz network for remaining laptops and phones so it doesn't slow down any tv streaming we may do. And we also have another network for guest use, and you're able to setup speed priority within all networks. So if I have a lot of traffic on my guest network it will slow their speed down so my other network that I'm streaming tv on wont slow down and start buffering like crazy. Really awesome feature to have with so many things in the home now being connected.

    I'm sure its good but support is poor

    bought this modem to solve some problems we were having with Time Warner provided modem and port forwarding issues with my son's Playstation. It was easy to set up and activate but the documentation is lacking and the tech support personnel are difficult to understand and their instructions assume you understand networking. We were never able to get the port forwarding set up so that the playstaion would work so we are selling this modem on ebay and switching back to AT&T since we know his playstation works fine with AT&T internet service. AT&T uses their own modems. I would only recommend this product if you are technical or willing to pay someone extra for support. The phone support from Netgear was very frustrating.

    I was tired of using equipment from my internet provider (TWC) and was looking for something that would last a good amount of time and is hassle free..after research and reading reviews I opted for this modem and I am in peace. Notable points, - Hassle free setup - Easy administration - AC so connectivity is blazing fast - Internet speed has improved tenfolds - no more modem restarts(yes you heard me right lol) - No more calls to customer support for internet connectivity issues The only downside I see is the slow response of the administrative pages and outdated UI experience of admin iOS application. The modem height is huge but can be ignored. Invest. Save time and money in rental costs. Enjoy the speeds and connectivity. Recommended to everyone.

    I purchased this item - combination of a modem and wifi router - when my streaming activities at home kept getting interrupted from losing the signal. Both the modem and the router were about 8 years old, and I wasn't sure which one to replace, so I chose to replace both with a single unit for the space saving convenience. I'm very happy with the purchase. All of my streaming devices now work without a hiccup, and it was easy to install. I should mention that the demand for wifi in my home is high, and this unit has worked perfectly, currently there two gaming systems, 5 roku players, an internet radio receiver, an internet phone system, and several laptops, tablets, and phones. I would definitely recommend it.

    With all the electronic gadgets we have hooked to our old router, it was a guess if anything would stay connected. This router/modem combo has made it easy. We paid $9 a month for the past 5 years, had numerous repair people out and had meltdowns screaming about the internet we pay to much for. Not a problem, much faster and no worries. No drops and even when our daughter is home from college with her phone & tablet, this Netgear Router didn't miss. 2 Printers, 3 smartphones, 4 tablets, 3 computers and a Smart TV. Its just so much easier and I give that piece of junk router we rented for way to long back to the cable company. Netgear has been a trusted brand in our house for years with other products they make. Thanks

    I bought this router to replace the one I was leasing from Time Warner Cable. The TWC router was locked down and I was having problems with setting up web filtering for my kids... the NetGear app would let me use OpenDNS and set up at least some basic filtering. It would be nice if it also had some kind of reporting on activity per device but that feature is not available as far as I can tell. The router has performed solidly for the most part. I have to reboot it maybe once a month, but it is unclear if this is the fault of the router or my provider, and it is inline with previous routers I have owned. The range is also quite good... the wifi signal from this router is solid in both upstairs and downstairs in my house.

    I replaced my comcast router/modem with this one and couldn't be happier. The setup was pretty easy and haven't had a problem with it. Once the router is plugged in you will have to call comcast and give them the router info in order for your service to work. If you are looking for a router/ modem to replace your comcast one and stop paying them the monthly fee to rent one this router/modem is a great choice. The upfront cost may scare some, but for what you are renting one for it will pay for itself in a year. For the people who have a larger homes don't worry about signal issues with this router I now have strong signal just about everywhere in my home which is 3800 Sq ft.

    Top notch router/modem

    This router and modem combo is highly rated everywhere you look. There isn’t much I can say that is not better explained by someone with more tech experience. What I will say is that out of the box it plugged in with no issues. It’s been a month since I installed it and it has exceeded my expectations. Super fast and reliable WiFi transmits without dead zones without slowing the feed in. For normal application this router/modem will do the trick and then some. It’s worth money being only a little bit more than the lesser options and nominally priced before overspending on the super high dollar tech that can’t deliver more without commercial service.

    I first bought an Arris modem/router, and its performance was terrible. I live in a typical two-level colonial-style house, and set up the modem/router in one of the upstairs bedrooms that I'd converted into an office. It worked fine in that one room -- but if I went 15 feet down the hallway the wireless connection began to drop off. If I went downstairs I would lose the connection entirely. Totally unsatisfactory. Thankfully BestBuy took it back in exchange for this NetGear device, which has no problems at all, with full connectivity throughout the house. I wouldn't recommend the Arris modem/router to anyone. I don't know why BestBuy sells it. The NetGear was $10 more than the Arris, but worth every penny.

    For sure not home camera friendly. No matter what I did. It would not let me get the cameras to be allowed to talk through. Was able to with another brand with AC WiFi in it, as well as my old out dated router I replaced. Not sure if its a known flaw but charter said the the random kicking all WiFi devices was due to it switching the broadcast channel. I shouldn't have to go in and change the settings. From time of power up, the items all on the wifi would get kicked off all at the same time and would happen more often until reset of the unit. Temp fix for a few hours and then it started and again would get worse. Range is just as good as wireless g networks too. There are 2 other well known brands. Go with them as this will be a money loss product.

    I had a 3year old all in 1 surfboard that had started to lag and show its age while streaming video. I purchased a new smart tv with 4k streaming so I decided to upgrade the router to save headaches. Well its was well worth it. The dual band is awesome. Love 5 g on my new tv. Ive had to reset it 1 time in a month. My old one had to be restarted multiple times per week. The signal is excellent. Super easy to set up. When I called to activate the service provider said I would get good speeds with this new router and sure it enough. Its nothing fancy like a nighthawk but it does great for me which is for cell phone wifi, tv streaming, ps4 video streaming, Amazon alexa, hue lights, Amazon firestick.

    Works w/Cox Internet-NETGEAR -AC1750 Dual Band

    I bought this after Cox Cable said my router and/or modem was too old to be compatible with their internet. The speed of my internet was not changed for many years; middle speed. They said if I buy a modem/router combination, it is the newest way to connect easily to the internet. Netgear service on the phone is not the friendliest and is based overseas. I hated talking to them. After a month, Cox Internet went out again and I had to call Netgear. The warranty return time is only 90 days. I would pay more, next time, for an American-based customer service phone line. I guess this modem/router brand was cheaper, so their phone service is cheaper, too.
