I like...Love it...After talking with someone in the store about this item, I reconfirmed the previous information that I had gathered on the Internet and a consumer guide purchasing magazine that I subscribe to about this product, and I can say now that I have it, that I really made a great purchase;good price, great quality, ease it to set up, what else can you ask for????...I went to my local Best Buy and thought maybe I would buy the same one since I really was happy with its performance, to no avail it wasn't available but the Netgear N600 was and suggested by the sales associate, knowing the guarantee from best Buy and the 30 day free support from Netgear I took a chance, well worth the purchase is all I can say.Choose this NETGEAR router and receive high level wireless security, the ability to share photos, music and more, and a way to keep track of your kids’ activity online.

5 Star....Spot on...I purchased the Google mesh WiFi home system a little over a month ago, and I purchased it to go along with my Ring Pro doorbell, because something they don't tell you about the Ring doorbell is that it needs a substantial amount of WiFi in order to work properly, so I had to purchase an additional single satellite and put it on the back side of the wall where my ring Pro doorbell is located in order to get a better wifi connection to the doorbell....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.Enjoy a consistent connection to the web with this Google Wi-Fi setup. The single access point is ideal for use in smaller homes of less than 1,500 square feet, giving you the ability to connect your tablets, laptops or phones. This Google Wi-Fi system provides a reliable signal that can be shared by multiple devices at once.

I win....Fast ....This thing is great, better range than Comcast's router and it has consistent WiFi, only issue I have is I can't figure out how to connect my PS4 to it via LAN, so its running on WiFi but I really wish I could use it with the LAN because it would be able to download much quicker but that is my only complaint....The increased range is what I love - I haven't tested it's limits but it keeps surprising me - husband was taking pics with on his phone out in the field and I saw them all before he could walk back to the house - straight to a shared dropbox folder.The Nighthawk AC1900 Cable Modem Router delivers WiFi speeds of up to 1.9Gbps.

I love...It's OK...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....Turned out it WASN'T the problem... I decided to keep this unit because I like how small it was and how well it works (now that Comcast finally ran a new line to my place!) Good value, works great with multiple devices using WIFI.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.
