  • Amazing !!! Need To Get !!!
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - December 2, 2020

    This is the money maker for internet speeds. I have spectrum, their 1000mbps package. My speed was with their equipment 3-500mbps on different devices for speed tests .. I was disappointed with spectrums equipment. It lagged and had loading times were terrible. Just picked this bad boy up and let me tell you my speed test is now 5-800mbps just off WiFi ... that’s just unheard of. My gaming response is on point and there is no lag what to ever. We game on 5 devices and honestly this is the best router I have had. And I had other nighthawks ac1900 and r7000 . This is worth it for this price if you want your speeds and no delay . NEED TO GET THIS !!!

  • Pretty good
    Reviewed by Frank Ceja - December 29, 2020

    My previous router finally decided to kick the bucket so it was time to get a new one. I mainly got this router cause it was the only decent one in stock. I wasn’t really expecting much when I had got it but to my surprise it turned out to be really good with no hiccups in connection. What really made it for me was the companion app, being able to handle all of your WiFi settings from the nighthawk app made setup soooo much easier than my last router. Only issue is that I had to get a WiFi range extender since the range on it wasn’t as good as my last router. Overall though it did what it was supposed to and made things really simple.

  • APP IS ABSOLUTLY TERRIBLE!!!!!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Itsjustmeguys - December 5, 2020

    works great, gave it 4 stars because the app you have to download and use is awful!!! I feel it is easier to connect and type 192.168.1.1 in the web browser and go to setting to set it up. Would have had it started up 10 times faster! YOUR APP SUCKS NETGEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe use 2 methods is stead of making you default to the app. Some people won't know how to setup without an app, but some people do. Setting up my other routers was a cinch. THIS WAS NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BTW my other router was the netgear ax1800 and failed me or degraded within 6 months, i hope i don't have the same problem with this one!
