  • Junk
    Reviewed by Brian R - June 16, 2021

    I don’t usually give reviews but I’m honestly so unhappy with this device I just felt I needed to. This unit was purchased to replace an older netgear router that just couldn’t keep up wit our needs. I used the app to install it and it seemed to work great for about 2 days then it was all down hill. It constantly ran slow and then would simply disconnect for no reason at all. Having kids doing virtual school and trying to work from home is impossible. I spent hours on the phone with tech support only to get it working for about an hour. Needless to say this thing is a piece of junk and it’s going back. Don’t waste your money!!

  • Solid!
    Reviewed by Andre L Marsh - January 19, 2021

    I’ve use Netgear product for the last 7 year and with every succession, I have experienced superb performance. First, I’d like to praise the easy at which the the firmware is designed and deployed for easy use. I can make several network changes, equipment security enhancement and subnetwork performance that fits my needs. Secondly, I believe the the design is handsome and easy to read no matter how it be used mounted or resting on a shelf. Lastly, when paired with the Bitdefender, I have confidence in the security of my network and my personal data. The Netgear brand is solid and I intent to stay wit it until proven otherwise.

  • Nice Product Does The Job
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - July 15, 2021

    I have a 3,000 square foot 2 story colonel home and one square acre of property. For certain reasons I did not want to go mesh. I have 150mbs coming in from my ISP and this router was positioned on the 1st floor of my home in the farthest room from center. This unit put out 30mbs even in the reaches farthest on the other side on the second floor and basement. Most other rooms were 50mbs or more. And more than enough for 4K streaming. We have 19 items connected. It put out 10 mbs even at the furthest end of the property where it was only needed for streaming podcasts or music and worked fine. Very satisfied
