  • Transformed the WiFi in my apartment
    Reviewed by David Dillon - July 17, 2021

    My apartment complex only offers one WiFi company which is already a bummer. And I was paying for 1000 mbps and the modem they gave me only put out 300 - 400 of the 1000 so it was clearly not giving me my moneys worth. So I decided to buy the router which drastically improved my WiFi to 800 - 900 mbps I would highly recommend this product not only does it speed up my WiFi significantly but you can create your own dedicated network separate from the one you create with your ISP and you can protect your network through the app as well as create a guest WiFi network if you don’t want a ton of devices on your main one.

  • Outstanding high-powered router
    Reviewed by WarriorDuck503 - April 14, 2021

    The Netgear Nighthawk router is superb in all respects. It pushes 800-900 Mgps easily throughout all levels of our home (4K sq ft). Setup is a breeze. Setup is completed via the Nighthawk mobile app, which is the first time I’ve ever seen a non-Commercial Service Provider (CSP) router set up this way. Also, the added analytic and security features are excellent if you have children and/or guests using your main and/or guest internet networks. HIGHLY recommend this product if your CSP router isn’t performing as advertised and/or delivering the quality of internet speed you are probably paying serious money for.

  • Fast router
    Reviewed by Spencer - May 9, 2021

    The router seems pretty fast and has great controls and settings included with it. The app used to connect to it and control it is actually a decent app. The only con I’ve had so far is that the app notifies me when a NEW device is connected. Well about a week ago the router must have automatically updated itself and when it came back online all the devices re-connected to it at once. It sent me 40 notifications over the next 3 minute period. My phone was going absolutely nuts. It’s suppose to only send a notification with a new device, not a existing known devices. It’s only done this one time over the past couple months I’ve owned this router, so i remain happy and satisfied.
