Wow -...It's ok...Best 5Ghz Signal I have ever had....Only tried the router out for a day then had to return, nothing about the router was wrong, I really liked all the aspects of the router but running Verizon in bridge mode I could not watch tv, so until Verizon steps up in the gaming world or another fiber company shows up I'm stuck with a non gaming routerTake your smart home to the next level with this ASUS router.

I love...no lag....The 5 Ghz reaches upstairs no problem....I love that it takes up very little space, but due to not having external antennas, it goes out a lot if being used for wifi access for smartphones, but is fine with being used for laptops and computers if you don't mind a few delays and even though it's a dual- band wireless-n router with built in cable modem, it's difficult to get the secondary band to function and wouldn't recommend it for large homes but it's rather more suitable for apts.The NETGEAR N600 WiFi DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router with N600 simultaneous dual band WiFi router and integrated DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, provides 8x faster download speeds, up to 340 Mbps.

Good ....A steal...I went to the Arris website and did some tweaking on migrating the 2.4 and 5 GHZ channels and selected different channels (not as frequently used) to increase speed while simultaneously checking my speeds with PCPitstop....I got this router because Spectrum wanted to give me a free router, but charge me $5 a month for wifi...it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that in 15 months this router pays for itself.Enjoy rapid downstream and upstream data with this ARRIS SURFboard SBG6700AC wireless gateway, which features up to 1600 Mbps throughput and front-panel LED lights for simple troubleshooting.

I like...No lag...On the 2.4 gHz channel I have been able to get a stronger connection on all of my "plug in" electronics and the 5 gHz channel has been phenomenal on my Galaxy S7 to help free up some bandwidth and also give me internet speeds higher than my home internet provider guaranteed....The setup was easy since I was coming from another Netgear router I just plugged my laptop to the router for the initial set up went to the router page and change the factory password and a few settings and everything was fine.The NETGEAR AC1750 Smart WiFi Router with external antennas delivers extremely fast WiFi.

Not bad...It's OK...Now the asus router is quite fantastic for a stand alone router, but when you have multiple 4k streams of Netflix happening at the same time as well as multiple smartphones/tablets, laptops/wireless desktops, and other various electronics connected all at once a single high powered router just can't cut it....My only complaint is that each router only has two LAN ports, and one has to connect to the modem (leaving 5 available for connecting other devices), so now my various smart home hubs are scattered throughout my house instead of grouped by the modem.Enjoy a consistent connection to the web with this Google Wi-Fi setup.

My Fav...OH WOW!...While it does not have the same range as some of the latest AC routers on the market, the ease of use and configuration of this router definitely makes it a worthwhile competitor and to answer a lot of the questions concerning this router, yes, this router is easily configurable and use no matter what platform you are using; OS X, Windows, etc....Speed over wifi on 2.4 Ghz channel is still what you would expect with older routers, but the 5.4 Ghz channel which is the channel that allows for AC wireless speeds tops out around 325Mbps on wifi on an IPhone, even through one wall.The intelligent, easy-to-use AirPort Extreme Base Station with simultaneous dual-band support is the perfect wireless access point for home, school or office.

Fast !...no lag...This worked great right out of the box-I gave it 5 stars however to use the extra 2 fastest "channels" of this router,you will have to look it up on the net, as the instructions are not that good You will get the regular "channel" "netgear89" right out of the box (by the way they say the password at unboxing is "admin" for user and the password is "password" This is the password for the router but not wifi....It turns out that Smart Connect not only manages this transparently behind the scenes but it does it dynamically, so if the kids are gaming on multiple PCs and I'm not watching movies, the traffic gets parsed between the two 5 Ghz channels with no effort on my part.The NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Router, with breakthrough Tri-Band WiFi delivers multiple bands for homes with many WiFi devices.

5 star...Not bad...However I can't judge this router yet in the long term, but I think overheating may have been an issue with previous routers and the vertical orientation of this router seems like it may be more efficient at staying cool and venting heat....This router was not strong enough to handle our needs, so I returned this router and upgraded to the NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk Dual Band Wireless AC Router which can now handle our needs.The NETGEAR R6250 Smart WiFi Router with AC dual band Gigabit delivers AC1600 WiFi speeds.
