Good Unit...Good buy...We also plan to see many manufacturers of Wi-Fi devices (smartphones, game consoles, TVs, etc.) take advantage of MU-MIMO tech in future versions of their hardware so that eventually your home can take advantage of this much-welcomed technology that can help alleviate some of the woes Wi-Fi technology has infamously shared since it first became a reality....IPv6 - this router does support it, however it's a little bit raw, for example there is an ability to setup an IPv6 firewall rule to allow some traffic to your internal IPv6 network from the outside (for example to access your IP camera without setting up port forwarding), however there is no way of making sure that specific device will always be assigned with the specific IPv6 address (like DHCPv6 reservation).

Must buy...Great :)...The Netgear N600 dual-band wireless-N router works great by combining a wireless router and a cable modem into one device which clears up desk space, especially with it standing on edge instead of lying flat on the desk....(Used with Comcast) Only thing worthy of mentioning is this item is really lightweight, which is fine in and of itself, but when you've got ethernet, cable, and power cords coming out the back, it gets a little top heavy on the backside and can be easily knocked over.

Five Star...Thumbs up...After buying a new Linksys N router and encountering nothing but frustration with that (failed to initialize, customer service was a nightmare), I bought this unit and it's been smooth sailing ever since....Only thing that I didnt like was that I does not support sound share so I can no longer hook up my soundbar wirelessly like I can with my 2014 model samsung smart tv.

Good Buy...Love it!...With the ability to configure the AP base station with an app on my phone and the strong 5 ghz for a signal rich environment I have replaced the weak wifi offerings from ATT Uverse and other providers with Airport base stations to the delight of clients, family and friends....I did have some issues with my network due to interference from the many networks in my area already set up, but Apple Support was very helpful in walking me through how to diagnosis that as the problem and change my settings to deal with it....This is a great product and got on sale during Black Friday.

Incredible Speeds...TP Link AD7200 WiFi Router -exceptional...I also like the fact that you can turn off the blue LED lights on the router so they don't distract people at night if it is placed in a room where someone might be sleeping....Currently I am unable to test the 60 GHz Band channel as I don't have a compatible device but will update the review once I do get a device that is capable of connecting to the frequency.

Great wifi...Love it....Overall, I'd recommend to someone with poor wireless coverage in their home, but for the pricetag, they'd have to have a serious need for the full functionality of the product....These are the third set of AC routers I've been through and is the only set that actually gives me 90-100% of my promised upload/download speeds my provider gives me.

It's fast....so stable....I was immediately impressed with it's more than capable speeds, however when it came to the distance issue, it did not increase the signal strength we had already achieved using our previous conventional router....It is very convenient to have this in one spot, and the integration is well done and simple to use, it just doesn't fit with my current setup Full disclosure: I received this device free as part of Netgear's First Look Review Program...Probably not, but at the sale price on Black Friday, it was worth it to give one a try.
