Summary: I have a hardwired tower PC, a wireless desktop PC, WIFI tablets, and a couple of phones. The N600 was very easy to install, connect to, and use. It has been operating seamlessly ever since (roughly 6 weeks). I bought it because Cox said replacing my 2005-era cable modem would give better service and speed. They were right.
Summary: We bought this because the modem the cable company gave us did not have a strong enough wireless signal for our whole house. The Netgear modem broadcasts a stronger signal. It is still weak in some parts of the house (3400 sq. ft.), but at least we can get a signal.
Excerpt: You'll get what you need by a not expensive cable + router 5GHz WiFi. My main issue was because 2.4GHz was too crowded... A lot of interference..no way to get a speedy connection. After this equipment everything is working perfectly. What do I choose this one over others options? Price + quality.
Excerpt: Comcast sent us a new modem/router that wouldn't work with our Chromescast device. After much research (and frustartion!) I found two lists of compatiblke modems. This one was available at Staples. It works fine and at the price I paid, will pay for itself in a year, as i'm not paying Comcast's $8 monthly rental fee for their modem.
Excerpt: It just doesn't seem to work well with Cox in Northern Virginia, despite both Cox and Netgear saying it was compatible. Numerous calls and chats with Netgear and Cox, as well as internet searches and forums, resulted in no improvement in stopping the dropped wireless connection issues or my unstable gameplay. I most recently tried to reserve an IP address and had Cox come out and check the lines. Neither made any difference.
