    Easy transition

    We have a small office and the transition from a older router and it was amazingly seamless. We don't have an IT staff so the responsibility for setup fell on me and believe me, I'm no technology guru. Fortunately, the app makes setup a breeze. We had a few things hard wired into the previous router so it was quick thing to unplug from old and replug into new. Interestingly, the Quick Start Guide really didnt provide any setup instructions outside of "download the app". No hiccups during setup and everyone was able to see and connect to the new wifi. I did not necessarily notice a huge speed boost but that may be attributable to our mediocre ISP. The signal was nice and strong. I was concerned about the change over and it went off without a hitch. Overall a very seamless experience. I received the RAX40 from NETGEAR as part of a review and test program.

    The Future of WiFi

    This router is incredibly easy to setup and has amazing coverage. The nighthawk app is easy to use and offers some great features for network management. We have Gigabit internet and the router handles it flawlessly. Even though we do not have any WiFi 6 devices, it works incredibly well with older devices. Could not recommend this enough!

    The router was super easy to set up and get going. I love the app and the ease of use as well as the various features. I previously was using an Airport/Time Capsule. I can still use the time capsule but the wifi signal strength was lacking. This router easily handles two xbox gaming systems, streaming movies and video conferencing all at the same time. Glad we made the purchase and didn't start creating holes in our walls to make a wired system.

    Extremely Easy Setup, Connection Challenges

    I found the setup using the app to be very simple. Everything worked flawlessly and I was up and running in minutes. So far so good. Then I started connecting all the devices in my house to the new wifi (MacBook Pro, iPad, kids iPhone 6 and Galaxy S7. No problems at all until I tried to connect my wife's HP Pavilion laptop running Windows 10. The laptop unable to see the SSID. Spent hours researching, tweaking settings, rebooting router and modem with no luck. Connecting the laptop via network cable directly to the router worked just fine, but no matter what I tried, the SSID did not appear when searching for a wifi. Very frustrating because older phones and other laptops did not have this problem. Finally I realized that had not updated the router firmware. As soon as I did so, problem solved. So just a warning to update the firmware right away and save yourself a headache.

    Have had this router for about 4 days. As someone else mentioned, the set up isn't flawless. At first, it seems as if you have easily set up the router using the app, but low and behold, you need to reboot here, configure there. After a bit of confusing time, I managed to get the wifi active and working. Now the fun part. With the wifi working, it started to drop, and the speed no where near matched my older TP Link. I have 100 MPS with Cox, and was getting between 10- 25 MPS with this router. After calling COX to confirm my modem was active and not loosing connection, I determined it must be the router . Long story short, I had to login to the Netgear Admin login on a PC and change the IP from static to dynamic. I think the router was renewing the IP and causing the connection loss. Also, I enabled QOS. Odd that it'sn't set by default. Overall, now that the router is stable, the coverage is crazy good, much better than my TP Link, and even Google WiFi. I can be out at my sidewalk and get WiFi great. The speed is pretty solid. I'm averaging about 120mps. Again, I only have a 100 MPS with Cox. Would I recommend the router? Nah, there's probably better, easier routers for less. The router physically feels cheap, and low budget. The Nighthawk app sucks, 80% of the time it can't connect. Also, the app doesn't let you do advance features so you have to use the desktop.
