    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.

    Resetting

    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).

    Home use, Speed

    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!

    Very Good. (Wifi range is less than competitors).

    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.

    Range, Speed

    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.

    Connection quality

    Router was a little hard logging into hardwired to change configurations. Once connected my devices has been kicked of network or disconnected every 20 min. Connection solid for weeks now with no connectivity problems!!! Should have bought years ago. Wireless range covers all 3300 square ft of home. Once app fully configured makes changes to router so easily!!!!

    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!

    Good router that works. I have my Playstation 4, 2 computers, 2 ipads, 3 phones and eufy base camera system all hooked up to this router. The 5ghz works well. Initially 5ghz was dropping and after some research I lowered the band and now it has been 3 weeks without a drop. My only issue is the support for netgear, they are not in America, they are in India. While they are polite and try to help, the language and communication is not the greatest. I had a problem when I first setup the router using the APP. Called support, after 30 minutes of not getting any where they recommended I reset the router and set it up manually without the App which worked very well. So basically 2 things, if 5ghz is dropping for you, try to lower the band to the lowest or second lowest and that should solve your problem. Second, I say skip the setup with the app and do it by entering the router ip address in your web browser and set it manually. Once done, then set up the App.

    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!

    I don't use the extra features that this router comes with; however, it has excellent range and speed throughout my apartment even with many competing WiFi signals causing interference (thin walls and lots of residents nearby). I think this would work well also in large-ish single-story houses. I haven't had any issues in 9 months, and that's usually a point by which I'll have noticed something that annoys me. Not so for this router! Setup was a breeze as well, though I tend to weight that less since it's usually only done once.

    This router is a nice and basic router. The ease of setup was excellent and connecting all my devices to it was a breeze. The range on this router isn't the greatest. I have had this for 6 months now and I am ready to upgrade to a more powerful router already. I had added extra devices and it just isn't able to keep up. I am running 25 plus devices in my home somedays. But I would highly recommend this router if you have 20 or less devices.

    Under the "features" of the router, it states you can set up parental controls with Circle Smart Parental Controls. NO WHERE does it mention this service is $50 per year. I replaced a 4 year old Linksys router to be able to have more features. My Linksys router had a better signal.

    The router itself is great if you need to push your wifi around your house. I did not any "boosters" or anything like that. I have an outdoor wifi sprinkler smart system and it picked it up great when the comcast router kept dropping it. But.... One day out of the blue (of course outside the 3 month tech support window) it died. Tech support during Covid times is challenging enough. But now, they won't talk to you unless you sign up with a tech support plan to trouble shoot. And the package is not cheap. If I had to do it again, I'd do a different router with better support. I like things simple. That is why I have Apple. They support their stuff. Yes you pay more for it initially, but you don't get surprises later. Too bad they don't do routers.
