    "There are both basic and advanced screens available when you log in to the router from a Web browser, which let you change settings, see how many and which devices are connected, set up parental controls, set up security and even set up a guest network if you so desire...So we looked into a dual band to help out and might I add we're able to access with this router with no issues at all, it has 3 ssid's you can set up, 1 for a 2.4 ghz, 1 for 5 ghz, and even a guest set up so you don't have to worry about guest coming over and asking for passwords and what have you"

    "I only had my tablet when I set up my system; I couldn't use the QR code reader when setting up; however, I was able to activate/link the devices with individualized set of letters (printed next to the QR codes) for each individual unit to set it up...Literally I took the main module, not that it mattered which unit I took out first since they all have the same amount of connections on them, opened up the google wifi app plugged the power cord into the wifi module hooked up the cable from my modem to the main wifi module, scanned the QR code when asked by the app to do so and I was up and running"

    "This worked great right out of the box-I gave it 5 stars however to use the extra 2 fastest "channels" of this router,you will have to look it up on the net, as the instructions are not that good You will get the regular "channel" "netgear89" right out of the box (by the way they say the password at unboxing is "admin" for user and the password is "password" This is the password for the router but not wifi...We live in a very spread out home and have always struggled with poor signal quality in some "dead spots" around the house... but this router seriously lives up to its hype... we have full bars of signal all the way out to the street"

    "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...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"

    "- If you're interested in some form of parental controls with this router, your best option would be to set MAC based time restrictions (if each restricted user has their own device), and set up a DNS based filter like OpenDNS for the whole household...I pick up the first hints of a signal as I'm driving up to my parking spot in front of my apartment which is at least 100 feet from the routers location in my apartment...I can literally sit in my car outside and have a bar or two of signal strength"
