"Love it...No lags...Pros: EXCELLENT Wi-Fi speed and range on the 5GHz band, helps reduce/eliminate bottleneck for local Wi-Fi connections; 8 wired ethernet ports; 8 adjustable antennas; load-balancing on the 5GHz Wi-Fi, Smart Wi-Fi allows simple remote administration of router Cons: Nothing really other than price....So far 3 days into it, i'm impressed, 5g is stronger than on the previous Linksys Router, I have yet to drop a connection, AND the UI is a lot better than the WRT32X or the wireless N router ( which looks like it has come out of the 80's ) This router is set up in my laundry room and has several walls for the 5ghz signal to pass through but so far it's doing the job and doing it pretty well."

"Fast !...love it...With 2.4ghz and 5ghz this is awesome!...A normal traditional router uses single-useer MIMO tech which means Wi-Fi to one device at a time, while this router uses the Next-Gen Multi-User MIMO tech which means WiFi to multiple devices at once, at the same speed... It is also open source ready and for those of you who get a dreaded port issue playing an online PS4 game and need to go into settings to allow ports this router will be a Godsent as it is very easy to manipulate networking functions."

"FAST !...I like...The 2.4 ghz channel is great....The WiFi range easily covers a 1500 sq foot home and can also get a great signal outdoors while outdoors--2.4 ghz provides up to 70 more feet outdoors while maintaining data speeds; 5 ghz also reaches outdoors up to 70 feet but the speeds tend to degrade at that range."

"Fast !...no lag...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....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."

"Wow -...No lag!...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 router"

"I love...Great ....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."

"Love it...It's ok...Handles 2.5 and 5Ghz with ease....So, some background, since about 2009, I've been running ddwrt on my routers because it generally was better than the built-in router firmware, supported applications/services that allowed me to attach network storage and stream media from that storage to various devices at home, or access my storage away from home."

"No lag....Worth it...A local file transfer between two laptops connected via 5 GHz showed transfer speeds up to 500 mbps at 30 feet: more than acceptable for my purposes....It was a really fast router did well for the 1st couple days but then had issue with both 2.4ghz and 5ghz channels burning out which im surprised because when I think linksys I think reliability but all new technology has its flaws hopefully they will get an update to fix this problem"
