    "Great upgrade...Strong Signal...I am very impressed with the range and power of this router and as long as its reliable without any continual reboots, its going to be a keeper....Without it on though, I am getting 500mbps+ to all my AC devices within 20ft of the rotuer, about 400mbps on the farthest corner room of my house and enclosed in my brick garage about 100ft from the router, I am still able to get about 50mbps."

    Only at Best Buy The NETGEAR Nighthawk AC2400 Smart Wi-Fi 5 Router provides up to 1733 + 600 Mbps Wi-Fi and MU-MIMO for lag-free gaming, better video streaming and multiple mobile devices. With Gigabit Wi-Fi, Beamforming, and built-in high-powered amplifiers and external antennas, get ready for extreme performance. Unlike typical Wi-Fi routers that just blast the Wi-Fi signals in all directions, with Beamforming+ the router and device communicate with each other, so the router can directly beam the Wi-Fi signal to the device. Boosting speed, reliability, and range for both implicit and explicit 2.4 and 5.0GHz Wi-Fi devices, the result is a stronger, faster, more reliable connection that is locked in even when the device is moved around the home.

    "Spot on...5 Star....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....I gave it four stars because I expected it to spread out the workload a little better but we still have too much time when one person is streaming and another person in a different area of the house has trouble with speed and responsiveness of wi-fi."

    "4 star...Fast !...I have no idea what else people do with a router...,but if I need to change my wireless passwords....it is so " "easy peasy"...I cannot really comment on the range since I live in a small 1100 sq. ft. home...the signal appears very stable...need to test it a little more /w/ streaming videos, etc....love the fact I can shop online at nite and then do in-store pick-up the next day!!!...Excellent router as I access the computer that is hooked to it thru software from 1200 miles away and also with MAJOR issues of getting service knocked out from ISP and with this router I go from actual kick offline to nano blips so it has been a life saver while waiting on ISP to find out why service so unreliable"
