Whole house router-modem-not so

KML23185, Staples
5 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I replaced an obsolete modem with this combination modem/router. I was told by the Staples employee, this model will do a better job covering my house. The increase coverage was negligible compared to the modem & separate router I was using.

User Review

  • Summary: unless wireless devices are within 20 ft from this router and no walls you would get good signal. Had to switch back to Linksys router so just using it as a cable modem now.

Faster internet

M.P., Staples
4 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I feel like this was a good buy. We needed one for our house anyway. We were looking for a mid grade router. There was some routers that were pretty cheap but not enough "gigabytes" so we chose a middle one.

It's great for the average user...

  • Excerpt: ...but terrible if you're not. You'll notice this especially when you're playing games like League of Legends, with the continual ping spikes and packet losses. Even if you were to be in the 5-bar range of the modem-router, you'll still ping spike a lot.

Wifi signal is too weak for 2 bedroom apartment

tuxcat, Amazon
16 September 2014
  • Summary: I'm living in small 2 bedroom apartment and I expected this modem/router gives Wifi coverage for all of my apartment. I set this modem/router in my living room and have a hard time getting Wifi in both bedroom. I wish I had spend some more money to get better product.

somewhat disappointed

customer sharon, Staples
11 September 2014
  • Excerpt: My modem was no longer working, so I bought this item because it claimed to be for a large home. I have a long house, so I get poor signal in the opposite end from where I set the modem and router. I believe the signal is stronger, but I still get weak signal and drop off during peak times.

I still haven't found a Netgear that I've been thrilled with and while the modem/router combo reports good it needs more etherne

Ross Guyer, Amazon
27 August 2014
  • Summary: So far this modem/router only has two ethernet ports and its wi-fi is nothing better than an average router. The antennas are internal. It has the same 2 oz weight which after plugging anything into it, the modem/router wants to fall on the floor from the weight of the ethernet.

Short range: 5GHz unusable, 2.4GHz is satisfactory

Muromec, Amazon
11 July 2014
  • Summary: 5GHz usable range is just 20 feet. And even at short distance with strong 5GHz signal there are some hiccups (webpages take a while to open and some ping times are long) on my Note 2 smartphone, thought there is no such problem on my macbook laptop.
