Extremely dissappointed

71stpony, Ebay

  • Summary: Was very satisfied with the router until it stopped working after two weeks. After attempting to contact Netgear both by phone and email with no success, I was forced to purchase a different router from a different manufacturer and return this one.

Didn't work for me

SFD71, Amazon

  • Summary: purchased this hoping to save some money. Instead I just got headaches. returned for a new unit not remanufactured. the unit kept disconnecting. Netgear genie kept attempting to restart the router and within a few hours it would stop and disconnect. no matter what I was connected to ethernet or wireless it would not stay connected.

Only 20 port forwarding rules!

  • Summary: Unbelievable. A modern router in 2014 dies only allow 20 port forwarding rules! So, don't buy as any tiny and cheap router from any other competitor has normally unlimited port forward rules.
  • Pros: good accuracy
  • Cons: only 20 port forwarding rules allowed

Nice int theory but weak in performance

Koby, Costco

  • Summary: Works well for normal usage. However when you load it with video streaming Netflix and such and with HD wireless security camera and or USB driver, Forget about it. I have to reboot it every week and performance if degrading. Do not buy!
  • Pros: looks good
  • Cons: skin deep beauty. cannot handle load!!!

Netgear Warranty policy

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • Summary: This was my second AC1750 router. I thought maybe lightening had ruined the first one but this one quit too. I will never purchase a Netgear product again because of their warranty policy. If they will only warranty rrefurbished products for 30 days then they should not sell the product as factory rrefurbished. 30 days on refurbished products is not enough time. There was a problem in the first place therefore the reason for being refurbished.

Fails within 1 year

user71824719, Costco
3 August 2014
  • Summary: This router is great until it fails. After 6 months, I had to power the router off. After plugging it back in, the power light started blinking. I went through all the recommended steps I could find online and none of them worked. Then, suddenly, it mysteriously started working after a few cycles of plugging and unplugging. This was lucky because NETGEAR doesn't stand behind their products and only offers 90 days of warranty.
  • Pros: handles many connections high throughput
  • Cons: very short lifespan
