    "I like...No lag...The setup was easy since I was coming from another Netgear router I just plugged my laptop to the router for the initial set up went to the router page and change the factory password and a few settings and everything was fine....The Netgear router was easy to set up and configure using the Netgear Genie program along for set up and security by using the WIFI Analytics Tool by Amped Wireless to find and optimize the channels with less interference from those who live near me."

    "No fuss...5 Star....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....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."

    "Not Bad...Love it...I had it up and running very quickly, and set up the Linksys remote administration over the web which allows me to change settings and, should a problem arise, fix it remotely more easily then prior router experiences....The data speed for the router is good, however it can be frustrating since moving throughout the house often requires the device to reconnect with the router and we have had to periodically restart the router to improve connectivity."

    "Fast !...no lag...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!!!...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."

    "I love...5 stars...Great product not only was it 100% satisfactory it over delivered in almost all ways I could imagine this is a wonderful router and modem easy to install easy set up would recommend for anybody...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."
