    I, like many others, have needed to work exclusively at home due to the pandemic. I had just moved into a new home, and the WiFi router provided to me from my ISP was a big, fat frowny face. Even thirty feet away, my signal strength was more than lacking, and getting all of my Ring security devices connected was becoming problematic. In general, I don't believe in silver bullets, but the NETGEAR - Nighthawk AC2300 Dual-Band Wi-Fi 5 Router is a true superhero, literally faster (not sure) than a speeding bullet, with connectivity stronger than The Man of Steel himself. Setup was a breeze. I first uploaded the Nighthawk app, reset my modem, plugged the router to the modem, waited a few minutes, followed prompts on the app, and within 15 minutes, my devices were all connected and flying with new confidence. I was physically connected via Ethernet to my old router, and my speeds were just over 400 Mbps. With this new router, I'm getting the same speeds, WIRELESSLY. Amazing. I cannot recommend this enough. (NOTE: my ISP is Spectrum, in case you're curious about compatibility).

    I've always been quite fond of Netgear routers. The Nighthawk does not disappoint! The 5ghz signal is working with my 300+mbps speed with no problem! And it's able to deal with my excessive smart home items just fine! I've got about a dozen or so pieces of tech running on my 2.4 network and save the faster one for things like my laptop and phone. Attached screenshot is from my phone over the 5ghz network. Just remember, your speed will always only be as fast as your slowest bottleneck!

    I bought a Linksys and that thing was a piece of garbage. It was blinking all the time kicking me out of the internet. I had enough of it and returned it to Best Buy thank God Best Buy is always a help and always have the best knowledge and employees. With the help of one of their employees I got this one and it work perfectly... I’m happy with my purchase.

    Super fast and reliable! Our older Orbi went out of us so we did some research and found this Router. It’s been a while since I’ve set one up and honestly... it was pretty easy and I installed it on the wall behind the 80 inch tv. Love it!

    Could be better

    I've had the device now for several weeks. The 5G is amazing. I'm supposed to get 150/10 mbps through my ISP. With the 5ghz band I get 165/12 and the 2.4ghz band has always been a problem. It will vary from as low as 40/12 mbps to 112/12. For the amount of money your paying for this router, buy another.

    Pros mentioned:
    Connection quality, Home use

    Internet and wifi is important at our house as we do a lot of gaming - Xbox, mobile, and PC. I had an Asus model that was very similar but it locked up and I could not save it. So I researched the Netgear Nighthawk AC2300. It had good reviews and it was on sale. We are pleased with its performance overall. The only possible issue is its' overall wifi range isn't quite as good as the Asus but the difference is slight. It has 4 ethernet wired connections and two USB connections and that is pretty common. It also has clear markings and lights to tell you about connections and activity. There is an app you can put on your phone to manage your network too. Overall I am pleased and zero problems. I recommend this router.

    I have used this router for about a year now and have had no issues. You can download an app (IOS or Android) that gives you control over devices connected on your network. Simple toggle controls in the app let you turn off devices on the fly(for when one of your children needs to do some homework) Fast network speeds with good range. Would recommend.

    Having done my research we decided to get this model router. Our old model was the 2300 and worked until the storm blipped it and it stopped connecting. The router works out to the box great. Side note: I thoughtI had to individually connect every device & tv again to the new router. Don’t! After setting it up, I logged into my iP and there is a tab that will allow you To check mark the devices to allow it to connect to. Also, it comes with a new wireless password but I just switched it back to the one we had so my visiting friends & family didn’t have to do anything. The ONLY negative I can see about this is the antenna’s. My old one was just a square black box, very thing and didn’t draw attention to itself. This one has 3 antennas and because its sits just under my hanging tv, I have to look at against a light colored wall. Maybe they should start making home in the same color the Arlo Netgear Base color, which is white so it doesn’t stick out as much in a room. Otherwise, no fear, find a good price and if its one Best Buy matches, grab it from them. Their technical help is spot on!

    This space age looking router has been amazing so far. I have never had a connectivity problem with it and it is on a different floor than the one I usually work on. I have the antennas set up as recommended by the instructions. I would highly recommend it as a solid investment. We use it with Spectrum Ultra (400 Mbps connection.) Just note that when you get it it does have screw caps on the back. You will have to unscrew those first and then put each antenna on while it is in the straight position, point all up once they are attached. It seems like a small thing but some people I know get all worked up about having to set something like this up so I just wanted to put out some basic tips for frustration free use. :)

    Only four star review because I had issues. After purchasing this I had nothing but problems. Couldn't get it to connect to internet and if I did it would drop out after a couple hours. Then it would take me an hour to get it back online. Dealt with Netgear customer support many times. They had me changing settings left and right. They were very helpful but couldn't figure out what was wrong. Finally the last guy at Netgear I spoke to told me he just thinks the product is defective to return it and get an exchange. Took his advice returned it to Best Buy and got a new one and it works perfect. Nobody's fault on that one I just got the lemon. Now that I have a working one great product. Awsome coverage throughout my house. Also because of all this Fiasco I now have a new modem because I thought that was the culprit.

    Throughout this quarantine, my home needed more bandwidth in order to support more devices throughout the days. I also replaced my surfboard modem with a new NETGEAR - 32 x 8 DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem. My ISP was easy to get the new modem connected and configured on their network and then it was off to me to get this router up and configured. I spent the better part of 90 minutes working on updating firware, changing the SSID and rebooting the hardware multiple times. Not a big deal for someone who knows what they're doing, but if my parents were setting this up, I would have been called within the first 10 minutes. If you know what you're doing network wise, this baby hums. There is some bloatware that comes with this (Disney Circle or something) but the rest of the features are great. Mobile app is nice!

    I purchased this router because I had used NightHawk and it was time for a new router. Purchased it 4/16/2020 at Best Buy. Read about it first. When It was hooked up to my new modem the Surfboard SB8200, they actually worked smoothly together. I’m not very knowledgeable about these things for sure. Prior to this I had modem/router by Netgear and it was very good. What I noticed about this pair was the signal is strong and works in all rooms, even in my car parked outside next to the house. That’s without an extender! Now I just want to see if it works in back in the garage.

    This was a great investment! I was tired of the router that was provided by my internet provider. It had no range and would constantly buffer. I bought this because it was at a great price and it had all the requirements I was looking for. It has long range, easy to install, phone remote operated and even security. So far the internet is faster and nothing has yet to buffer. Given are quarantine status it was really perfect for my family.

    I bought this to replace my Verizon supplied router and the speed is incomparable. Setting up the router is a breeze. The companion app walks you through everything with no hold up. My only gripe, and I knew this going in so I can’t hold the router at fault, is that there’s no coax input so my Verizon fios dvr wont work. That’s more the fault of Verizon though. All in all, Great product.

    The Nighthawk Wifi router R7000P-100NAS is a bit pricey than the regular WiFi routers out there. You will need a modem to connect it to the internet. Setting up this product was a breeze and the mobile app makes it easy to secure. I am new into the hi-speed internet arena but so far I like the coverage. Considering there are a lot of routers around me, I haven't experienced a drop in the signals even outside my home.

    This Netgear Router was exactly what we needed. The App installation was easy and the coverage is great. We didn’t have coverage on our patio and this Router did the trick. Our WiFi is no longer drops when we’re in the basement or outside. Features include website blocking and parental controls.

    This router was a much needed upgrade from my old hardware. I saw huge speed improvements in areas of my home that were normally dead spots. I've been able to consistently keep download speeds of around 200mb with 15 or more devices on my network. There were some setup hiccups but once those were all resolved everything has been good. I'll keep using and see if this holds up.

    GREAT for multiple users with rural internet

    We live in a rural area, in which we cannot get the high speed internet like a suburban area. Having 3 sons on their devices, plus myself an husband...WOW it has really been able to keep us all online with only losing connection due to the internet company. I was leary at first, but know I would buy this router again. Nothing like having a smooth connection and not having to yell "Who is on the XBOX?" so I can do my work.
