I like...FAST !...Great monitor for wireless...I'm pretty tech savvy but by no means a guru on this stuff... I didn't want to have to be an IT expert to get it operating.The router really works well, and although I still might need an extender to reach those nether-regions of the house, this was a good purchase and worthwhile upgrade from my "old school" unit.The NETGEAR AC1750 Smart WiFi Router with external antennas delivers extremely fast WiFi.

Cool Core...PROS: ....Protect Your Home Network/Monitor Your Children...Overall, this router offers some truly unique and potentially beneficial security features if you happen to already have or plan on using "internet-of-things" devices but if that isn't the case for you, you can probably find a cheaper router that performs just as well as this router does but without the added security features.Without you knowing it, cybercriminals can infiltrate your Wi-Fi network and steal your identity or invade your privacy by accessing your connected devices. Password protection isn't enough anymore. Engineered with multi-layered security, Norton Core™ intelligently protects your Wi-Fi network and an unlimited number of connected IoT devices such as smart TVs, baby monitors, Wi-Fi thermostats as well as your personal devices like laptops, desktops, smartphones and tablets against malware, spyware, ransomware, viruses and more.

no lag...Fast !...Great distance and monitoring features are amazing....I would not use the "Smart" traffic manager on 5GHz and use your head to make the decision of which radio to use, use 5G-2 for devices with 802.11 a/c, and anything that has slower radios like the b/g/n radios, stick them on the 5G-1 radio if they are close to the router and put anything that has signal issues on 2.4GHz if they are further away, lower frequencies penetrate walls and obstacles much better than higher frequencies!The NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Router, with breakthrough Tri-Band WiFi delivers multiple bands for homes with many WiFi devices. WiFi speed up to 3.2Gbps and 6 high performance antennas provide maximum speed and range. Smart Connect allows you to game, stream, and download mega-sized files without lags.

No lag...Great QOS...My favorite R-Apps "router apps" are the Network Monitor and QoS....Now to the features, love the DumasOS, the Geo-Filter I see can make a difference in gaming, but in my use I do not see a benefit, I mainly play Gears of war 4 on Xbox One which is on a server, It does a good job connecting to a close server but unfortunately we cannot control who connects to the server, so I'm stuck playing with players with high pings.Enjoy seamless connectivity when playing online games with this Netgear Nighthawk Pro gaming router.
