I would recommend this router to others for home or small business

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this router because it was on sale. It replaced a less expensive Netgear router, so the software and features were much the same. However, this router has a much stronger signal (particularly on 5GHz) and covers my whole house. And since it is designed to handle more concurrent users than my previous router, I anticipate having to reboot it less often (previous one needed rebooting approximately monthly).

calling customer service was a joy..

  • Summary: Purchase this 18 months ago for my 83 year old mom, when she moved into a new apartment complex that had all the wiring for WiFi in a media box in the closet. Was a snap to hook up and left the unit in the media box. Worked and still is working perfectly and the newer 802.11AC speed is noticiblly faster. She subscribed to Netflix, and has a "Smart TV" and does nothing but watch movies all day...with very few hang ups or buffering problems.

Solid, High Performance Device, Great Range

  • Summary: Great Wi-Fi Router. I upgraded to this after trying a linksys AC router that just wasn't performing well. I have a 2 story log home with a basement. The entry point for internet is on the second floor. (It's difficult to change wiring in log home.) I didn't build the home so it wasn't pre-wired with ethernet.

Lightning Fast!

Bryan O. Reaves Jr, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a 100 megabit internet connection from my ISP- When on a wired ethernet connection to a desktop computer, I am consistently at or above my quoted down-speed transfer rating. Before purchasing while I was on my ISP's wireless N router, my wireless connection was never higher than around Mb, most likely because I live in a densely populated area. With this new router, I'm now getting the same down-speeds via wireless AC as my incoming wired connection.

Perfect for older homes with plaster walls

Wilson Hines "Wilson Hines", Amazon

  • Summary: The previous owners of our house told me, "You're going to need a WIFI repeater or place the WIFI in a better place than the kitchen. It just can't get to the front of the house with the plaster walls." The front of the house was built in 1908 and the rear and upstairs in the 70's and 90's, respectively. I think what they were using was 802.11 b/c/ and maybe, just maybe n. This AC router plows through the plaster!

Not a great start, but it got better

  • Excerpt: I have DSL and 1 wired device with several other wireless devices. I do ask a lot of my router. I had a Netgear wireless N router when a power surge took it out. I thought this would be a nice upgrade. For about the first week it was a struggle to not get dropped every 20 minutes or so for a minute or 2. The genie is awesome and easy to use which is why we still have this router.

It was nice while it worked - for 2 hours

Michael L. Muth "Mike Muth", Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: When I unpacked this item, I found that it was complete and undamaged. Setup went quickly and the router worked well. It was fast, I had no trouble logging in. All was good...for about 2 hours. At that point, the wireless interface stopped working. None of my wireless devices can see the network. Restarting the router did not help. After close to 2 hours on hold and "chatting" with the tech, Netgear decided that the hardware was defective.

Netgear AC1750 Dual Band

Tiger, Staples
13 November 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a very nice router. Dual band. Separate guest account. Very easy to set up and it hides behind my flat screen monitor. It has a large broadcast area reaching throughout the house (3 floors) and into the yard. All my devices work with this - Android, Apple, Dell, HP, Apple TV, phones, etc. Very fast. It works so well I don't even know it exists - out of sight, out of mind.

Overall, an amazing router!

Brian K Perez, Amazon
9 November 2014
  • Summary: I am very, very pleased with this router/WAP. It is by far the best I have ever owned. I now have full coverage around my home with some areas that offer 3 out of 4 bars of radio reception, but still provide me the necessary bandwidth outside of my LAN at the speeds I have been assigned with from my carrier. Within my LAN I am getting consistent 300Mbps speeds, which is very pleasing when trying to transfer files from my phone to the computer.
