    I bought this router when lightening strike to my neighbors house burned out my wifi-ac router dual band. I decided to go with the tribals rather than get another dual band and later wish I had upgraded. It is expensive, but powerful and easy to set up. In no time had it running with better range than I had before. So far no problems with dropped signals, and have great streaming.

    Inconsistent speeds

    My ISP plan is 200 mbs download speed and sometimes this router would clock in at speeds of up to 228 mbs but sometimes it couldn't go past 150 mbs. Very disappointed with the inconsistent results from this router. As for range, I live in a medium sized 2-bedroom apartment and had 100% signal in every corner of the apartment with no dead spots.

    I live in an older home that has presented challenges to push a signal through it with numerous computers, smartphones, tablets, etc.. . The Nighthawk 6X provides a powerful signal everywhere and the tri-channel system keeps everyone and each device running at high speed for work, gaming and streaming. Excellent purchase!

    I bought this router to replace a router that wasn't covering certain parts of my house and was crashing due to the amount of wifi devices I have. This router is able to support all my devices and I now have full wifi signal throughout my house. Set was easy and fast and experienced no issues and since I kept the same network and password I didnt need to reset my devices.

    Works great, and best Buy helped with some questions. We have a 2400 sq foot house and this provides a good signal throughout the house. The previous one didn't reach upstairs bedrooms. I had researched a relay, but this seems better and easier. I'd recommend connecting desktop computers using Ethernet as possible to avoid slowing the wifi.

    Excellent router for multiple wireless users. Have been using it now for 6 mos. have not had any issues. Supplies continuous uninterrupted signals for all my Roku players (4) being used at the same time plus gaming. I am not going to get all technical like the other reviews, but I will state my wireless download speed is 110 mbps. Cox is my supplier.

    So far the Netgear Nighthawk has been working flawlessly. I definitely get a better signal from it than the Apple Airport Express I was using. I mainly needed to get a signal outside and this has been working great. I might even be able to get a better signal if I had the Nighthawk more centrally located in the house rather than one end.

    This router is great for a large space. Make sure to place in a central location for the best strength throughout the house. I wish the app had more functions to control what devices were on each channel. If I was going to do it again I would look into buying a mesh system though.

    This router is fast, reliable, and powerful all together. I could not be happier with my purchase. I'm using it with the Motorola surfboard SB6183 and I pull 122 Mbps download speeds on a 105 Mbps plan from Comcast. I easily maintain a fast and stable connection even with 17 devices online at the same time on my network. It's the best router I've ever owned.

    Had to replace a defective router and Netgear had a special on this unit and Best Buy matched the price. Very easy set up and was working in 10 minutes. Their customer service has always been good. The coverage is outstanding in the house and on the property. I live in a rural area and can walk a good ways from the home and am still receiving my Wi-Fi signal.

    I went to Best Buy and they recommended this router to me. My sewing machine has a wireless cloud, and the sewing machine was a long distance and a floor down from my router. This one reached easily and all my devices work anywhere in the house. So happy! Easy install and have not had any trouble with it. Have had it 6 months now.

    The WiFi Router is powerful. The internet cable installer set it up for me and tested it. He complimented that I got a very good WiFi Router. It's fast and the signal is very strong would probably cover up to a 3 story level. We live in a one story home. Like the fact that it has Guest Wifi capabilities as well.

    I had anticipated a long complicated setup process. I was very surprised with the intuitive automated process. The setup walked me through with three or four questions. I was setting it up as an access point. Up and running in 15 minutes. Strong signal with fantastic throughput. The spouse is happy now with no dead spots.

    I'm so happy with this router. I have about 20 devices in my home that connected to the internet. My old ATT router can't handle all these devices. There is no problem with this new router. It also gives me a stronger signal and longer range.

    This is the first high end router that I have ever owned. It definitely does not disappoint. Our home is 3000 square feet and we now have perfect signal in every room. Prior to this router the signal was slow and sluggish. I also was able to connect our adjacent apartment to WiFi using this router. Expensive but worth every penny.

    The router is as easy as it gets to set up. Plug and play basically!! A lot of range and power but I moved up to the x8 to get even better coverage due to the router having to be in a bedroom so the signal is going through a lot of walls to get downstairs. I hard wired the tv, dvd, Xbox and receiver so they fly.

    This is the best router I have purchased, however there are some intermittent interferences at times but quickly resolved. The netgear genie is simple and easy to use when updating to the latest firmware and checking the router status. Highly recommended with homes with a bunch of devices running at the same time!

    replaced my old netgear r6300 router which was a great router but didn't have as much range as this one. My download speed went from around 40-50mbps to 80-100 mbps with this router on the 5G-2 extension. This is a very nice router to spread your devices out on to get best signal and range.
