4 star...FAST !...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...That is not altogether a bad thing, after using the router I found that it was more of the fact that NetGear routers already had pretty well laid out settings screens, but I think this product could benefit if the settings screen was redesigned to look more appealing, and to make it have a look that is different from their older routers.Accelerate your WiFi with NETGEAR Nighthawk!

Fast !...I love...When I got home with it I noticed that the Genie app was not listed on the box so I called NETGEAR presales to verify that it would have this capability (I found a list of compatible routers and it was not one of them)....I was paying $11 a month for the rental router from comcast and my service was super slow, as soon as I went out a purchased this router I turned in the comcast one and my speed went up 2 times the amount I had with comcast.The NETGEAR AC1750 WiFi DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router provides very fast cable speeds with an AC1750 WiFi router and integrated DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, up to 680 Mbps.

Fast !...Love it...Bought this router to supplement the one that the cable company provided after reading the reviews... It is indeed faster and has a better range but the access control feature is terrible... Even though the router is password protected, the access feature allows you to block any unknown devices seen on the network... It only works once in a couple months... Apart from that I would still recommend it......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.The NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Router, with breakthrough Tri-Band WiFi delivers multiple bands for homes with many WiFi devices.

Fast ....I win....This thing is great, better range than Comcast's router and it has consistent WiFi, only issue I have is I can't figure out how to connect my PS4 to it via LAN, so its running on WiFi but I really wish I could use it with the LAN because it would be able to download much quicker but that is my only complaint....I did a speed test 3x all throughout the day just to get an average number on Comcast modem the results where in the middle of the night of course I got the best results but with the new modem I was getting my best numbers in the middle of the day that before I could only get in the middle of the night it is expensive for sure it will take me 26 months to start saving money but the speed increase is sure worth the priceThe Nighthawk AC1900 Cable Modem Router delivers WiFi speeds of up to 1.9Gbps.

I love...It's ok...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....Turned out it WASN'T the problem... I decided to keep this unit because I like how small it was and how well it works (now that Comcast finally ran a new line to my place!) Good value, works great with multiple devices using WIFI.The NETGEAR N600 WiFi DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router with N600 simultaneous dual band WiFi router and integrated DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, provides 8x faster download speeds, up to 340 Mbps.

Not bad...It's OK...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 have the onhub and have great wifi coverage throughout the house, but as I add more item the the wifi, I felt like I need to add a point to support the extra devices...

nice ....Not bad...All my family is able to connect to the wireless Internet, and the connection is fast and reliable, I don't know how I was able to use live without it, now that I have linksys I know I was missing out, my son is happy playing his video games, it is faster he said, also my wife and daughter said that Internet is been faster....My initial impression of this product was off because I was still having issues with streaming, but once I read the FAQ and set my stream devices to use 5 GHz all those problems went away, and it is so powerful that I can actually use steam link over wi-fi (computer itself is wired), which was a pretty big plus I did not expect.Your household wants to play, stream and work online all at once.
