2 out of 5 eggsNo longer support Arlo wire-free security camera.

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: Good router.

Cons: Does not go what it advertise as a major function of this router. Recent software update remove the main function why I purchase this specific Nighthawk router, that is acting as a hub for Arlo camera. Now I have to go and purchase a separate hub to get my camera working.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsThis is the worst router i have ever bought

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: A lot of features. But i don't think it works as promised.

Cons: 2.4Ghz dropped sporadically. 5Ghz was even worst.

Other Thoughts: Should have sticked to my Asus brand router much better. Netgear still had so many flaws in their design and quality control. Went back to my rt-n56u so smooth & keep the $175 netgear as a spare part.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsWiFi keeps dropping

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: Speed
Looks cool
USB port

Cons: Seems to have an odd problem with the wifi.....it likes to randomly stop working ;) Wired network works wonderful.

I've owned it since it was released, only recently started flaking.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey,

We hope to get the problem with your WiFi fixed right away and are sincerely sorry that you've had the trouble. Please email us with your R7000's serial number, a copy and paste of your review, and the current firmware that you have running.

Regards,

5 out of 5 eggsThe stock Netgear Firmware is too basic but DD-WRT has alot of potential with this model.

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: The best part about this router is that it is robust enough to support DD-WRT via the KONG mod just fine :)

Standard versions of DD-WRT can cause random reboot issues...but thats due to a driver issue with the ARM chip, not the software itself.

the "Kong mod" now has the proper drivers and Its completely eliminated my issues 110%!! :)

In example: My online gaming with the stock netgear firmware was having random packet loss issues...while the current version of DD-WRT I am using eliminated the problems.

Cons: Does run a bit hot with DD-WRT modding, but I had a simple solution... I just put it into the same room as my portable LG Air conditioner :)

Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy this product again very soon due to the reliability of the DD-WRT software.

5 out of 5 eggsUnbelievable performance, I tested speed before and after installation. My down load speeds went from 29 to 37 without any tweaking.

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: Now running, 4 media streaming boxes, 1 desktop, 2 laptops, 2 netbooks, 3 smart phones and gained speeds like it was not even a challenge. Buffering? Not here. And I am usually updating someone's media streaming box. 1900 mgps.

Cons: Was hesitant about spending that much money while I am getting by on my 300 now with my N speed router. After seeing those speeds no more hesitation or unplugging and resetting worth every penny but wish it were a little cheaper.

Other Thoughts: I have already recommended it to many of my media tv box customers who had similar buffering and resetting issues. How many of us add up all the devices connecting to our routers and think about how we must have 1080P movies and the rest. If you are even thinking of maybe getting a new router stop thinking and do it. You won't regret, I wish I did this a while back.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst router I've ever owned

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: None

Cons: Anytime a device sleeps or attempts to reconnect.... the device can connect to the router, but not to the Internet. It requires that I login to the router and reset any parameter. Once the router saves the new setting, devices are able to find the Internet again. It's a tragedy of comic proportions.

Never buy this router. EVER.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey Joseph,

We'd like to help you get the R7000 working perfectly and are sorry to hear that you are dealing with this problem. As soon as you get a moment please email us at netgearteam@netgear.com with a copy and paste of your review, your contact information, and the firmware that you have running on the router.

We are once again very sorry that you are having trouble connecting to the internet and look forward to changing that right away. Always remember that you can contact us for help!

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

2 out of 5 eggsNever used as Router

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: NA

Cons: Unfortunately because of the price of this unit vs the price of an EX7000 extender, I thought having the more robust unit R7000 to work as an extender with my router R8000 I'd be in a better position. Turns out the R8000 does not support repeater mode. Made this purchase tough as I spent hours trying to get this setup until Netgear informed me both products "in repeater" mode are not compatible as the R8000 does not support the function. I was really looking forward to having these working together.

Other Thoughts: My egg rating isn't really fair as I intended to use it not as a router which is it's main function. Simply rated for my needs which isn't really fair as well as this unit isn't at fault either, it's my R8000 router......

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Sean,

We appreciate your honest review and are sorry to hear about the confusion of using this with the R8000. If you have any further questions, or need any additional help, please email us at netgearteam@netgear.com.

2 out of 5 eggsSoftware Controls Hopelessly Out of Date

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: Pros: It's cool looking. The hardware side of this router actually works fairly well and the 5Ghz wireless is pretty fast. For that, it has to get at least two eggs.

Cons:
Cons: As stated, while the hardware works, the software controls on this router are a *joke*. Apparently, “parental controls” to NETGEAR simply means preventing my kid from seeing "adult content" online. What it **doesn’t mean** is easily controlling when their internet access turns on and off, when Skype works, if they can play League of Legends at 3:30 on a school night, etc.. ASUS has a robust and EASY method of controlling access, easily configurable by day and time of the week in seconds. ASUS calls this “parental controls”. What Netgear uses is a third party service through OpenDNS, which is a service focused on preventing kids from seeing "adult content". The service does NOT permit an easy way to set dates and times for internet usage based on a nickname tied to a MAC address. OpenDNS requires the entire network to be blocked at times, and then individual clients to be run to circumvent it. If your device does not have one, it won’t work. The amount of time it takes to configure all of this is RIDICULOUS. And even THEN it does not work to stop many routine uses. It is USELESS.

We are having to reinstall an ASUS bridge in our home leading to our kids rooms to deal with this ridiculous situation.

If I had known the LAME excuse for “parental controls” this router actually provided, there is not one chance in hell I would have bought it. Yes, the hardware aspects to this router work pretty well. The software side of this, however, in ALL respects, especially when compared to the ease of use for all features enabled on ASUS’ entire router line -- is totally out of date. The software support is so out of date that the device is, to be blunt, a piece of **** unjustifiably sold at a premium price.

I spend many thousands of dollars a year annually on PC gear. This is the worst PC peripheral purchase I have made in over 10 years, even compared to products I have RMA'd. And please remember that this opinion is about a product that actually *works* as the manufacturer intends. Avoid this router like the plague. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Robert -- thanks for your honest review, we appreciate the feedback. It sounds like overall you're happy with the router and its performance, but the Live Parental Controls aren't what you were looking for.

There are many other ways that you can control access to sites, services, and devices with the router. This is covered in section 5 of the manual, "Control Access to the Internet." You can set up Live Parental Controls if you like, but if you're looking for finer grain control, you can do that by either blocking sites (or keywords) as well as certain services. You can control blocking by device as well as block on a schedule, e.g., don't allow connections to the League of Legends servers on a school night for only certain devices :) There is no need to install clients or anything like that.

Please give that a try and let us know if it helps meet your needs. You can contact us for further feedback at netgearteam@netgear.com.

5 out of 5 eggsUnless you're going to intall ddwrt don't bother

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: Works Flawlessly with good range on ddwrt.

Cons: Netgear's firmware is horrible, slow lan, poor range.

Other Thoughts: Like I said, the hardware is great, but unless you're going to install ddwrt (I use kong's) I can't recommend it.
Flashing and setting up ddwrt is easy enough usually with step by step guides on how to set it up.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lastes

This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router w/ Arlo Wire-Free Security Camera Support

Pros: Great router with innumerable nice features. Fast USB link, fast wireless, TiVo connectivity right out of the box. Streams perfectly on equipment far from what one would normally deem suitable for modern PCs

Cons: This router worked great for exactly one month beyond its warranty period. Then suddenly the wifi radio took a dump. Shortly thereafter the wired portion of the router is having issues as well.

Other Thoughts: Would I recommend this router? Absolutely not at this point.
At just under $200.00 I expected a lot more than this in terms of its life. And certainly, I expected much much more from Netgear.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello William,

Please email us at netgearteam@netgear.com with a copy and paste of your review and a description of what happened. We are very sorry to hear that your unit has stopped working and look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
