Excerpt: I was having very serious signal problems with my old router and decided to splurge a little on this NetGear AC1750. It was worth the $$. I am getting a clear WIFI signal throughout my house and into the garage.
I used to like Netgear products - then I bought this one

Summary: Installed easily for wifi and internet access. Tried to get Readyshare USB storage to work with a USB 3.0 hard drive. Failed. Watched Youtube tutorials. Learned that it does work for some people - but I assumed that. Still cannot connect from my PC via either hard line or wifi. Readyshare insists I put in a user and password but it doesn't even take the admin account and password. I Googled the problem and found no answers.
Excerpt: This router was very simple to install, loved that part. It seems to work well, however I still have to purchase a range extended for my application which is in my opinion unique. But now it seems to work very well. Overall happy with purchase.
Excerpt: I had the AC 1600 and upgraded to the AC 1750 for the QoS feature hoping to help my VPN Streaming. My internet dropped at times and my provider service is 20/2 Mbps speed. This is over fiber to the premise service. I checked my provider service and it was not dropping my service. I had to reboot my router to refresh my VPN connection. The router was a year old.
Excerpt: This router works great! We had issues with two other routers before this one. They wouldn't provide wireless that would reach throughout our house, only in the room the router was located. This router has great reach and signal strength throughout our home. I don't like how big the router is or that it stands upright like a picture frame but that's not enough to make us return it or not like it, however it is a nice sleek black router.
Excerpt: I have a "wireless modem" from the cable company that I thought would be the answer to my prayers only to find out that our wilreless signals were dropping off pretty frequently and thus having my wife and kids complain pretty frequently as well. I called the internet provider and they informed me that I had 17 connections and that their "modem" was not capable of handling that effectively.
Summary: This is my third Netgear router, the best one so far. Netgear still has one easiest and best browser menu setups. I only use browser setups, since I customize a lot of menus and actions in the routers that I use being in my office or at home. Firmware upgrades are consistent with Netgear. Range is really good. Fix IP Address Reservation: I am not a fan of DHCP when I have multiple devices, extenders, and combinations.
