  • 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

  • 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 was easy to set up, however when we had to register it online- put our name, address, wifi access information,etc. - it was not difficult, but more of a pain. We use all Apple products and we hooked it up into a MAC. So maybe that had something to do with it.

  • 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. Speaking of the range, the device can't even cover the range of a small apartment, so good luck with that The worse part is is that most all games that require connectivity will be affected by this.I still own the...

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 was booted out of a final exam three or four times while studying online, so now I need to go back and buy a booster.

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. Although I have checked the broadband speed, even with the ethernet connected to my ROKU, it constantly stopping and loading. And I have 50mbps How much speed do you need?

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. 2.4GHz range is better but still not satisfactory, drops significantly at 20 feet and one wall.

Connection with this router goes in and out constantly. ...

Amanda, Amazon
10 July 2014
  • Summary: Connection with this router goes in and out constantly. I have a 2700 square foot home and signal is weak in the upstairs bedrooms. I bought this to replace my Suddenlink router because I was tired of paying $10 a month to rent, but now I'm regretting it because my signal bites.
