Not worth the Money- Bad Tech Support

Kindle Customer, Amazon
27 December 2014
  • Summary: This router has been trouble from day 1! I should have returned it right away once I saw that it didn't work with our desktop. I have contacted customer service at Netgear numerous times to no avail. I got a replacement of the exact model router and it still doesn't work to my expectations.

  • Summary: I am writing this review after contacting Netgear multiple times. I have a closed case for a problem with UPnP that I allowed to close because I was not willing to "test" their beta firmware after already testing 3 other versions of firmware with the same results.

  • Summary: When I hooked up this wifi-router I had high expectations, they were quickly dashed. I had my cable company increase my speed, purchased a new cable modem and the Netgear ac1750. My son had no increase in range or speed over our old simple ,cheaper router.

Better Choices

  • Summary: Tried this router after having connection problems with netgear wdr4300. Many hours spent trying to configure it to no avail so tried the R6100 which worked well except the wired Ethernet ports are only 100mb/s. The staples specification displayed is incorrect.

Not as advertised

  • Summary: the Netgear router was not as advertised. It was inconsistent and did not broadcast through the house as suggested. The 5 GHz was not much faster than the 2.5 GHz. I am considering returning it but nothing is out there in the price range any better.

  • Summary: This router was purchased to use in a mixed home network with more than 15 clients. Initial setup was easy and fast, about 10 minutes including the security customization. All devices connected and throughput was excellent.
