Excerpt: I bought this to replace an older Netgear WIFI router that a lightning strike ruined. The setup was simple and smooth. The router is working perfectly with all the devices I have connected to it which includes Mac's, PC's and IOs devices. It is a definite recommend even if it is not the latest greatest WIFI 802.11ac spec. I am very happy with this purchase.
Excerpt: The product is slim so it doesn't take much room and fits nicely into the decor as it took my husband a week to notice it. Set up was easy so we were all connected within 15 minutes. I wasn't too sure about this company as I had heard mixed reviews, but took a chance and was pleasantly surprised at how well it receives and sends the wifi throughout my home. This has proved to be great as we are always connected to the internet for school.
Excerpt: I have two of these routers which I have flashed with DD-WRT firmware.<br />This firmware expands the capabilities if these routers, they are very stable, they can handle multiple streaming events...<br />I plan on buying another one to create my own mesh network.
Summary: I got this unit because of the simultaneous dual bands. The number of models with this feature that also had a cable modem my provider approved were limited We have a dense neighborhood and from my living room, I can detect 6 or 8 wireless connections strong enough to be usable. Luckily, all of them are on 2.4 ghz. That means the 5 MHz is open and without any competition.
Summary: I made a decision to switch from AT&T Uverse to Comcast and was looking to buy my own equipment so I didn't have to rent any from Comcast. I heard about this modem/router and decided to try it, primarily because I didn't want to have to set up both a modem and a router separately. Also, I received this modem router at no cost to me in exchange for an honest opinion. Setting up this modem router was very easy, I found the instructions clear and easy to follow.
Summary: I had a separate Motorola modem and a Netgear N router, which were 9 and 4 years old respectively. I decided to replace these and was comparing between ARRIS / Motorola SURFboard Gateway SBG6580 and Netgear C3700 modem with N router combo. After going through the specs I found 2 major differences between them - - Netgear has a USB 2.0 port but Motorola does not. If you want to connect an external drive, this is an issue with Motorola.
