Excerpt: My old router died. I needed a new one. The old one was only good for about 30 feet away. The new one does not reach as far as I wanted but it does reach much farther than the old one. I can now take my laptop or tablet approximately 800 feet from my apartment and still be connected to the internet.
Excerpt: Was having problem with my internet, kept losing the DNS. Charter was no help but when I replaced my router with the new AC1200 my problem was solver. Don't know why my old N600 was having trouble but I'm glad the problem is solved.
Summary: I bought this router over a week ago and I can't take it anymore. The box claims it is for larger homes (mine is not large at all), but I can't walk 25 feet away without the signal disappearing on my iPhone 4GS or Android tablet, which means I can no longer sit on my deck and use the web (the iPhone get's a poor/no data signal in my back yard and the tablet is only wi-fi). And when I do come back in the house, it often fails to reconnect and I need to do it manually.
Excerpt: The Netgear Router R6200 was easy to set up and works like it should. We were able to add several devices with no problem. The only complaint I have is the brightly lit name in the middle of the router. It makes a great nightlight but I don't need the library lit up at night.
Excerpt: Very easy to set up. Speed and range works great! 'Dual Band' essential means that you'll have two routers in one. 1. The faster 802.11ac with separate connection/login (5G) 2. The slower 802.11 (what you're probably upgrading from.) You can name each 'Band' with separate names and login psswrds. If your computer is not 802.11ac compatible it won't even recognize the faster connection option.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
