4 star...FAST !...Also like that it has Beamforming, which enables it to recognize where connected devices are & boost signal in their direction rather than throwing it out equally in all directions....Great price for this one too at 150 bucks, I only wish I had looked more into the details when I bought the laptop a year before (been waiting for the city to get its act together with fiber for 2 years!) but its all good, the gig wifi card for the laptop is only about 11 bucks, and the cost for a new laptop with gig wifi already built in is WAY more.Accelerate your WiFi with NETGEAR Nighthawk!

Spot on...Love it...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....Pros: simple to set up; multiple points provide robust coverage for a space underserved by a single wifi point; WPA2-PSK encryption and built-in TPM; attractive and smells good :); independent controls for each point; decent length of power cord Cons: this system is meant to operate on its own for the most part - not the right product for those who want or need to tinker and configure; no web interface; solutions to problems can seem frustratingly out of reach; no usb port; only 1 availabEnjoy a consistent connection to the web with this Google Wi-Fi setup.

I love...Good !...Price - for the combination of what you are getting in Router and modem capabilities coupled with saving the high monthly rental fee I think this item offers a very good value Overall this has proved to be a great two-in-one solution as both a cable modem and router with the added benefit of saving me from a monthly charge for lesser equipment....I was paying $11 a month for the rental router from comcast and my service was super slow, as soon as I went out a purchased this router I turned in the comcast one and my speed went up 2 times the amount I had with comcast.The NETGEAR AC1750 WiFi DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router provides very fast cable speeds with an AC1750 WiFi router and integrated DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, up to 680 Mbps.

I win....Fast ....I did a speed test 3x all throughout the day just to get an average number on Comcast modem the results where in the middle of the night of course I got the best results but with the new modem I was getting my best numbers in the middle of the day that before I could only get in the middle of the night it is expensive for sure it will take me 26 months to start saving money but the speed increase is sure worth the price...Value - Overall I think the C6300 might offer better value for the money for average users as it is a very capable device in it own right but for those who will push their router and modem to the limits the C7000 does offer good value for its price.The Nighthawk AC1900 Cable Modem Router delivers WiFi speeds of up to 1.9Gbps.
