Spot on...Love it...App is top notch....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.Enjoy a consistent connection to the web with this Google Wi-Fi setup.

I like...FAST !...Not only is the router a top notch buy but the software that comes with this router is the cream of the crop being able to use an app to easliy view what's on my network and configure it to my needs is well worth it in my opinion....I am not an expert by any means, as it took me quite a while to figure out how to log the router in and bring it online, but it has worked flawlessly and allows me to use more devices and receive my wifi from much longer distances at faster speeds.The NETGEAR AC1750 Smart WiFi Router with external antennas delivers extremely fast WiFi.

no lag...Fast !...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....This router is really quite amazing, the range of this unit carries farther than I have ever seen in a router to date, and it was so easy to set up and install because there is an online App to help you on both Windows and Mac.The NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Router, with breakthrough Tri-Band WiFi delivers multiple bands for homes with many WiFi devices.

Fast ....I win....iPhone 6, iPad Mini, iPad Air 2, iMac 27, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and a Mac Mini seem to be getting very strong signals throughout the house and puts to shame the router that Time Warner Cable supplied me with and had the audacity to charge me $8.00 and that price is going up to $10.00 in 2 days....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.The Nighthawk AC1900 Cable Modem Router delivers WiFi speeds of up to 1.9Gbps.

I love...5 stars...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....There was an automatic prompt when connecting that allowed me to get it synced with my service inThe 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.

Good ....Love it...I got this router because Spectrum wanted to give me a free router, but charge me $5 a month for wifi...it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that in 15 months this router pays for itself....It seems to be functioning fine, and can even be detected by my phone during these fits, but the only way to reconnect when this happens is to power down both the console/PC in question an the modem and then turn everything back on again.Enjoy rapid downstream and upstream data with this ARRIS SURFboard SBG6700AC wireless gateway, which features up to 1600 Mbps throughput and front-panel LED lights for simple troubleshooting.

5 star...not bad...This router was not strong enough to handle our needs, so I returned this router and upgraded to the NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk Dual Band Wireless AC Router which can now handle our needs....While the smart phones changing from wi-fi to data was very annoying and costly, and led us to make this purchase, the dual band router has increased speed of the six computers we use to run a home-based business.The NETGEAR R6250 Smart WiFi Router with AC dual band Gigabit delivers AC1600 WiFi speeds.

not bad...Love it...Not having to reset it due to connectivity issues and all my devices have a strong signal and connect seamlessly, I suggest getting the 2-3tb time capsule if you want to save any valuable info from an iMac or MacBook that might be lost if they crash or go out given the fact that they don't backup to iCloud, and make it an easy transition to a future upgrade....They are all designed to remember the user to make a quicker handshake connection....problem being they only can handle max 20-30 devices and everyone has a smart phone or iPad etc and have to unplug to clear old devices even though supposed to forget IP addresses.The all-new AirPort Time Capsule works with OS X to automatically and wirelessly back up everything on your Mac to its 2TB hard drive.1 And it doubles as a full-featured Wi-

nice ....Not bad...From a wireless perspective, everything went flawlessly, all wireless devices automatically connecting to the router at their optimum connection speeds ( i.e. - AC capable devices at 5 ghz, legacy devices at 2.4 ghz) however, I did run into a minor hick-up when trying to establish a LAN connection to my Vonage device using DHCP....I'm sure glad I did because while it wasn't intuitive to me all I had to do was call Linksys customer service and they were beyond helpful; talking me through the process until I was good to go and even called later the same day to check on me.Your household wants to play, stream and work online all at once.
