DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT OR ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY

Summary: This is the WORST product ever from a company with TERRIBLE customer service. I have been on hold with their "voice prompt" system for over an hour on hold and this was after waiting the entire weekend for help.
Summary: I thought this was the best but have been disappointed with the performance. Have three samsung smart Tv's, Mac, Mac pro laptop and iPhone 6. The problem is when I have Smart TV on movie the other will drop wireless and say it cannot connect.
I've thus waited until I could not bare the poor connectivity any longer

Summary: The router worked as per the specs for about 4 months, at which point the wireless connection's bandwidth has gone down from 45Mb/sec to less than 3Mb/sec, with intermittent outages. For a while I've blamed Comcast, not willing to consider that a fairly new router could be malfunctioning.
Summary: Am having lots of problems with the unit. Have to reboot frequently and the wifi slows down and stops working lots of times for short periods. Tested with direct ethernet hookup when the wifi slowed down to 2Mbps via speed test and speed test showed 16Mbps with direct hookup.
Summary: Superb range, even for 5 GHz. Placement is on bottom floor of a large 3-story home. Both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz have good signal in all rooms, even on top floor. 2.4 GHz delivers better speed through walls, equivalent to wire connection (50+ Mbps). Easy setup.
Summary: It does what it's supposed to do and greatly increases the speed of my wireless devices compared to my older wireless router. I connected it and opened the software as instructed. There was a notification that a firmware update was available.
Summary: Not a comment on the router itself, more a comment of Netgear "support". All of these responses to "call us" will get you nothing but "Oh, I see you are out of the 90 day free support - you'll have to pay now if you want to talk with us".
Summary: I received this router free from Netgear to test and review. I am very happy with this router. I had my laptop connected to the wireless network and on the Internet in about five minutes from taking the router out of the box.
SURPRISNGLY EXCELLENT! Setup Unbox and plug into computer

Summary: As an average end-user (not in IT), I am always looking for a router that can cover a large area (in terms of signal strength) across both the 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrums. NOTE – This was important due to the size of my house and the varied number of old vs.
