    Before this modem we had given up hope on our internet. Our ping was none existent (usually 20 or less) and our download speed never went higher than 8 although we pay over $100 for 50 mbps download. So after a year of fighting with Shentel we decided to bite the bullet and purchase our own. Best decision ever. I have attached a pic of our current speeds and that is with 2 kids gaming on Fortnite plus our living room tv streaming. We don’t have cable so we do everything online and this modem has made that online experience Seamless! I absolutely recommend this modem to others. If your having connectivity issues it’s likely your modem and not your provider! Give it a try you won’t regret it!

    Home use, Signal quality, Speed

    The only high-speed internet provider I can use is Comcast xFinity and their SB3 & newest SB4 would not allow for a steady connection and would be offline more than online. Read the end to note if you have xFinity Home, which is Comcast’s security system. After 11 tech visits and 3 supervisors came by, countless call ins, I decided to purchase my own modem/router combo to see if I could resolve the inconsistency & it was resolved. The associate at the local Best Buy suggested this one since I have so much connected with my home being smart and have several Nest Cameras streaming 24/7. Right when I changed out the modem settings with tech support via FB Messanger (as tech support closed at 8pm), my life changed. I now have constant high speed internet connection and it has not once went down in the couple weeks I have owned this brand and model. If I knew it would have resolved my issues since Jan 2019 and it’s June 2019 now, I would have made this purchase much sooner. Comcast employees can’t explain why “using my own modem and router is working but their devices wouldn’t. Not even the newest model on the market, the SB6). I have Google Home Hub, Brother laser printer, 2 iPhone Max Xs phones, HD xFinity cable box, Samsung TV, 4 Nest Outdoor Cameras, smart defuser, smart doorbell camera, my xFinity Home alarm system, and much more connected at all times and nothing once since changing to this modem/router have had any issues. When I tell Google Hub to stream one of my cameras, it doesn’t have one delay and I can also have it streaming on my phone app and MacBook Pro all at the same time without gang flaws. With the rented devices, it would lag and have the time not work. It’s literally night and day difference and I recommend this one to everyone. It has a high range which covers far corners of the home I live in which is 3200 total sq feet. Have great signal while outside and on patio far from where it is plugged in, it’s excellent. Well worth the money spent to have decent internet access and Comcast xFinity has no reason on why, as I stated above, my personally owned modem will work while the two they offer did not, it is pitiful. Also, saving the extra $15 per month will add up and eventually over time save me monthly rental fees. My neighbor which runs off the same cable line as the house was built in the 1890s and made into two units have their services and while mine was down, theirs remained up and online. They own their own modem and router which worked when mine wouldn’t. Same connection, different results. All cable lines were replaced, the converters changed out to new ones, the pole had MOCHA filters all changed out, they couldn’t resolve the issue whatsoever. Note: the touchpad for xFinity Home (alarm system) doesn’t recognize this modem as a modem nor router). Home technicians had to come and place a “side car” gateway, which is plugged into the Ethernet port on back of this device to allow touchpad to utilize WiFi for smart functions and notifications while backup 3g still worked but had delays, the WiFi option didn’t recognize it. I even had a tech from India call center try to make the SB6 modem from xFinity act as a gateway and it would not work (I was given tech a temporary access codes to go into tech settings). It was free of charge for technician to place the “side car” which is basically a wireless router with hidden SSDI and password, all secure and unable to access in general for the touchpad to sync properly to WiFi settings. It’s some security protocol which I tried googling yet not able to resolve on my part. **photo attached shows the “side car” needed and installed.**

    I would have had a difficult time trying to get it to work, but our installer from Hot Wire spent time figuring it out and getting it to work. I like the fact that it is two in one as we use it in our RV and space is always at a premium. It fits nicely into the area behind our flat screen. Once working, it has worked very well and we are most pleased with it.

    Excellent Router Coverage!!

    When you buy this router it replaces your xfinity router your renting. It has superior coverage and easy customization and xfinity will provision this router readily and reimburse your annual xfinity router rental fee. Fantastic, better and pays for itself.!! Sweet

    This was super easy to set up with the Nighthawk app: less than 10 minutes from box to done. The 5G wireless is crazy fast: I am able to consistently pull 200+mbps from the other end of the house on my iPhone 8 (Comcast cable w/250mbps plan)

    I have several smart TV's and wi fi connected stuff around the house, the netgear ac modem router I was using wasn't fast enough for the household needs, so I decided to try this one, I noticed the difference right away, the buffering problems with my TV's stopped , so I am happy with my decision.

    Great product for fast internet in 1 story homes

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Home use, Set up, Signal quality

    Disclaimer: I received the Nighthawk AC1900 Router through NetGear's Friend's and Family test and review program. All comments and thoughts that make up this review are mine and mine alone; I received no pressure from the company to post a biased or untruthful review. What led me to searching for another router/modem was that the Comcast gateway rental that we were using is not powerful enough to distribute a WiFi signal throughout the entire house. I currently live in a house with two floors, and with the router downstairs, the people living upstairs (which includes me) don't get enough signal. When I was offered to test the Nighthawk AC1900, it worked out perfectly as this would eliminate the need for a separate modem. Due to the nature of our Internet problem, we have two ISP accounts from Comcast with a 70mbs and 150mbs plan respectively. I tested the Nighthawk AC1900 on the 150mbs Blast! network for the best results. For comprehensive purposes, I have broken down this review into multiple sections. Setup Setting up the Nighthawk AC1900 was fairly straightforward. The product comes with an easy to read manual if you get stuck along the way. After plugging in the router and connecting it to the internet in the house, the router began to set itself up. It took about 10 minutes to fully boot up and begin transmitting a wireless signal. A tip for those with Comcast: I was unable to actually connect to the internet until I verified my account information through a Comcast pop-up box. Make sure you do this if you are not able to connect to the internet after the router boots up. After I verified the information, the router updated and I was connected to the internet. Relatively painless process that was easy and straightforward. Setup is 10/10. Features The Nighthawk AC1900 has two WiFi signal that it uses: 2.4G and 5G. I personally love this feature, as it allows me to connect older and newer devices at optimized speeds. My ancient computer from 2010 can't use the faster 5G signal, but uses the 2.4G flawlessly. My Moto X smartphone is able to connect to it to the 5G, and is significantly faster. I'd prefer that all my devices are able to use the 5G band, but that is a hardware issue on my part. Looks like its time to upgrade the rest of the gadgets. The Nighthawk AC1900 also comes with an integrated router management system, which I'm using to manage who connects to the router and network names. Two other features that are included are USB drive sharing and wireless printing. We already have a wireless printer, so I decided to test the USB drive sharing. It looks like a great way to share a hard-drive across a household; I was able to drop some files in it and extract them from a different computer. A cool feature, even though I mainly use DropBox for document sharing. Features are given a 10/10. Performance This was difficult to test, as I was uncertain whether the problems are ISP based or from the router. The first thing I did after setting up the router is speed test it—many, many times. The various speed tests I used were: - Ookla speed test http://www.speedtest.net/ - Comcast speed test (also powered by Ookla) http://speedtest.comcast.net/ - Xbox360 Network Statistics test - Ookla speed test mobile app I ran 20 tests on the 2.4G band on my computer and smartphone, 20 tests on the 5G band on my smartphone, and 5 network statistics tests on my Xbox. I stripped the outliers outside two standard deviations and averaged the results grouped into the different test locations. When I was hardwired into the router, I was getting insane speeds. This proved that the router itself was able to get the full speed that was being offered by my ISP. I have included a summarized list of speeds below: *All speeds measured in megabytes per second (mbps) - Hardwired Ethernet Cable Avg. Download Speed: 158.12 Avg. Upload Speed: 11.97 - 2.4G WiFi Signal ~5 meter distance Avg. Download Speed: 41.86 Avg. Upload Speed: 12.11 - 2.4G WiFi Signal ~15 meter distance (upstairs) Avg. Download Speed: 28.90 Avg. Upload Speed: 11.05 - 5G WiFi Signal ~5 meter distance (Smartphone) Avg. Download Speed: 78.29 Avg. Upload Speed: 12.59 - 5G WiFi Signal ~15 meter distance (Smartphone upstairs) Avg. Download Speed: 31.45 Avg Upload Speed: 10.85 As you can see, the signal is reduced significantly upstairs by about 2/3. WiFi signal typically has a standard loss rate of about 50% of actual speed, so it is performing slightly less than expected. I am getting ~2 bars of WiFi signal upstairs, which is disappointing as I was hoping the Nighthawk AC1900 would be able to transmit a full signal throughout the entire house. I want a router that's able to give my neighbor down the street 2 bars of WiFi, and apparently this is not the router for that. I performed some bandwidth tests, where I had 4 devices simultaneously connected and streaming video. The router was able to handle all of the devices, but at the cost of reduced speeds on every device. The xbox we have upstairs is also not receiving optimal speeds (~11up and down); this is a problem as it is essentially our dedicated Netflix machine and we do not want any buffering to happen. My main gripe for performance is that the Nighthawk AC1900 is not able to distribute its WiFi signal evenly throughout a two-story house. The signal loss rate is slightly below average, and falls within acceptable range. However, the router is able to handle the hardwired speeds with ease, and the 5G signal is very fast while on the same floor as the router. All in all, performance receives a 7/10. The Nighthawk AC1900 fell a little short of my expectations; however, I have fairly high expectations when it comes to Internet speeds. For the price (currently $279.99 as of this review), I would like much more powerful WiFi signal distribution. It falls on the expensive end of routers, but since it is also a cable modem the price is more fair. A large bonus is that it eliminates the need for any surplus equipment from your ISP, such as any modem rentals. If you are a performance nut, and need your fast internet speeds over WiFi, I would recommend purchasing a separate modem and router. If you like decently fast internet, live in a one story home, and don't want to stress over modems, routers & excess wires, then the Nighthawk AC1900 is for you.

    Good modem-router but with issues

    Posted .

    So far I’ve had mixed feelings about this Netgear-Nighthawk AC 1900. It works fine, but I keep loosing downstream channels from 16 down to 8, usually lossing channels 1-8. This is extremely annoying because it causes my download speeds to drop, no significantly, but enough to be an annoyance. I’m not sure if this is a Netgear problem or RCN’s. I’ll be calling RCN and I’m sure they say it’s a Netgear issue.....

    I like shopping at Best Buy they always have great stuff. That's my go to store. I would recommend it. I'm happy with the modem. The only thing I don't like is that they're always moving things around and why are you getting rid of the rap section and especially the CD section. I'm a loyal customer I'm always shopping their.

    I've had this since December 2019 and have had nothing but broblems since day 1. If you enjoy slow speeds, weak upstream, and constant loss of connections, then this is the modem for you. Xfinity and Netgear have done nothing but point fingers and place balme on each other, and have done absolutely nothing to correct the problem, whatever it may be. Consider yourself warned
