  • Summary: I bought this router roughly a year and a half ago, during that time it put out great speeds, everything was as expected. A couple days ago I had to restart the internet connection however, I pressed the devices default power off button located in the back and then turned it back on. I was met with a flashing green led where the power light is (commonly referred to as the green light of death by thousands of people who bought this product on the internet).

Not worth the money.

  • Excerpt: 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. He plays League of Legends and was disappointed with the total expierence that was promised. I read several reviews and felt this was a good buy. The set up was easy and instructions were good.

Better Choices

  • Excerpt: 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. The USB port worked well with a printer attached and the connection was reliable. The R6100 is a decent router if you don't need high performance to wired server or an ISP.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed
  • Cons: Unreliable connection

Not as advertised

  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Slow Connection Speed, Unreliable connection

  • Summary: I have owned this router for almost a year now, it has great range and you can connect a a lot more devices than you could with any other router. Unfortunately i have had nothing but annoying issues with the router, the port forwarding does not work, extremely high pings while playing games (PC, Xbox, PS3 and etc.), random wireless drops and so on. I have contacted their customer service several times and they can not seem to resolve the issue.
