  • This is a really good router

    from Edmonton, AB on December 21, 2018

    It looks like a disign from a prototype Batmobile. It is just filled with anger. Pros: - still getting a minimum 20 mbs using the 5 ghz speed from 3 houses down. I didnt check how much farther it would go,,because i was only going to the mail box. - great for really large home - you do not need a range extender - you can create 2 more seperate wifi channels. A 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz which can become the guest networks, or kids networks with a seperate for each network. 4 in total. Control when, who,where, and how much is used. - you can monitor every divice on your network. Your router will create a chart with all the divices on your network.automatically separating all channel online,offline, wired, and wireless. You can pause, block, name and delete dvices. There are picture icones for those divices . - a lot of options at your disposal Cons: - can be a litle over whelming with allthe options. - the price. There are to other model of netgear night hawk that are just as powerful with more ports, 1 extra chanel for 100 to 150 dollars less
