  • Great product
    Reviewed by mackenzie - November 5, 2020

    I used to have problems with my outdoor security camera always dropping the wifi signal and not working due to poor signal. My wifi was always very slow and I only received about 1 bar in the basement. I bought many products before this one including a few wi-fi extenders with no success. After purchasing this product I haven’t had a problem since! at least 3 bars of wifi in the entire house no matter where you are, and my outdoor cameras never have an issue! Great product would highly recommend

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Excellent so far
    Reviewed by D.R.C. - July 4, 2020

    Had an old D-link kick the bucket and saw this router on sale with glowing reviews all over the internet. Install was a breeze with the app after registering it. Wireless covers our entire 3500 sft home with ease and no discernible difference in connection from room to room. Very happy with the purchase!

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • No Parental Control
    Reviewed by kmivens - October 9, 2020

    I bought this router a couple of weeks ago knowing that it does not have parental controls so I am using the Access Control with static ip addresses and a schedule to block access to the internet which works fairly well. It would be beneficial if there could be multiple schedules so that all devices did not need to be blocked at the same time. May I request that in a future firmware update that you add multiple schedules or incorporate full parental controls? However, I was impressed with the ease of setup and the wireless range and throughput. I had dead spots in the house with my old router and this router reaches those areas without a problem.

  • Ferrari fast speeds
    Reviewed by Extremely Happy - April 29, 2020

    As someone who is not very tech savvy it’s always a little scary to get a new electronica device, but with the purchase of this new NETGEAR AC2100 Smart WiFi Router my concerns were put to rest, “Easy Set-Up”. With the Router I had before the movies and shows I was streaming on my television were always buffering or stopping completely, I thought it was my Internet provider giving me slow speeds I didn’t know that it was my router that was holding me back. I never realized just what a dinosaur of a router I had before I installed this new Netgear router, now I feel like I’m driving a Ferrari instead of a VW!
