1 out of 5 eggsPlease learn from my horrible experience and avoid Netgear routers at all costs.

Pros: When working, performs well but only when working.

Cons: I am on my second AC1900 (R7000) after the first one stopped connecting to the internet after a few months. Going back and forth with Netgear, they finally sent me another router and this one would also would not connect to the internet. I read numerous articles online, updated the firmware (even installing DD-WRT and then reverted back to the Netgear's latest firmware) with no success.

Completely frustrated, I went to a local store and bought a $30 wireless router and using the same network cables that were shipped with the the R7000, the inexpensive router was able to connect to the internet perfectly.

I have worked in the IT industry for the last 20 years and have never dealt with such a sub-par piece of hardware. I feel that Netgear took my money and is not willing to fix the issue. From my perspective, the support staff appears more interested in closing the trouble ticket with no concern about my satisfaction.

Please learn from my horrible experience and avoid Netgear routers at all costs.

Other Thoughts: Offers to help in the public domain (responding to negative reviews) seem like a hollow public relations move instead of a sincere offer to help.

Response times to email is horrible.

Should have bought from Newegg. The vendor I selected is no help in resolving my issue.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of Money and Time!!!

Pros: that it works at all

Cons: Constant random resets all through the day.
This thing reboots at will all the time disconnecting everything.

Other Thoughts: I only use this as a wireless access point and it cannot even handle just the wireless traffic.
I use PFSense on a dual NIC Intel i3 box as my router. I sold my TP-Link 1043ND Gen 1 router running DD-WRT for this piece of Garbage. I hate this router!!!!!
I AM running DD-WRT on it and it crashes constantly.
I own an I.T. service company. I took a chance on a Netgear product and got bent over a desk with no lube. I will never buy, use or recommend another Netgear product. EVER again. It doesn't really matter, I never used them in the first place and decided to give them a shot in my office. At least I have not sold any of these steaming piles to any of my clients.

5 out of 5 eggsJust got it yesterday...

Pros: Easy to use, simple install, looks FANCY.

Cons: Rather large

Other Thoughts: It's not really a huge issue, but I think it runs a little hot for my liking. To remedy the issue, I simply took an old laptop cooler and plugged it into the USB of the router. Took all the heat away

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Make The Same Mistake I Did. STAY AWAY!!!

Pros: I'm so frustrated and angry that I can't think of any pros.

Cons: My ISP recently brought 300 mbps service to my area and ran a special. We took advantage of that special. After a day of install and testing, we could not get over 100 mbps on my desktop. We finally figured out that the problem was my network. I had a Netgear CENTRIA 4700 router and a D-Link 8 port gigabit smart switch. I upgraded to this Netgear Nighthawk router and a TP-Link 16 port gigabit smart switch. I was still getting about 85 mpbs of the 300 mbps coming out of my modem. I called Netgear tech support and was told that I must have it hooked up wrong. I knew this was not the case, but decided that I needed to have all of my ducks in a row before calling again. Double checking everything I found all of my cabling to be CAT 6. I had 300 + mbps from my modem, also from the router and if I disconnected the router, and came off the switch, I still had my 300 + mbps. But, if I hooked the router and switch up, it dropped me back down to 85 mbps. This is basically the same problem that I had before upgrading my router and switch. I called Netgear tech support again and gave them this information. This time without any testing, I was told that the problem had to be my switch and to call TP-Link tech support. I was not happy, but made the call and after working with TP-Link and swapping switches with no change. We came to the conclusion that I had a router problem. I decided to give Netgear one last chance and called their tech support one more time. This time the support agent put me on hold many times, but never did any testing. At the conclusion of this call, I was again told that I had a switch problem and not a router problem. I am sending this router back!

Other Thoughts: This has been the worst tech support experience I have ever had. On top of everything else, I must have made 10 Netgear tech support calls and 4 of those I was disconnected with no call back (don't ask for my phone number in case we are disconnected if you don't intend to call back!!!!). Several of these calls, the tech support agents accents were so thick that I had a very hard time understanding what they were saying. I will NEVER buy another Netgear product again!

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Router when Wi-Fi is Working.

Pros: Nice router, when it is working. I was so excited about buying this beast of a router. Running firmware - V1.0.3.60_1.1.27. Web interface is clean and easy to navigate.
Don’t know about 5GHz Wi-Fi, haven’t yet been able to get 5GHz devices to connect to Linksys WUSB600N adapters.

Cons: Wi-Fi is fluky. Laptops, printers, Android phones & tablets sporadically loose internet connection and/or drop off the network. Sometimes a device’s Wi-Fi indicator will show a strong connection, but the internet and local network cannot be accessed. Other time a device’s Wi-Fi indicator shows a local network connection with limited to no internet connection, in these cases the internet will not be functioning and local network will be hit or miss (i.e. access to network printers, servers or NASs may or may be available). And last but not best, a device’s Wi-Fi connection will be showing no signal, while the R7000 will be happily chugging along believing it is broadcasting an amazing signal.
Basically, the Wi-Fi issues are all variations on the same theme, constant interruption in the Wi-Fi connection.
The fix: Rebooting the router has proven to be the only fix to the problem. Nothing else seems to work. I have read many internet post regarding this issue. You can spend hours, as I have, tweaking the R7000’s settings, to no avail. Many R7000 owners have shared their similar experiences all over the web. Reboot, Reboot, Reboot.

Other Thoughts: For a $200 router this is unacceptable. Totally unsatisfied!
There doesn’t seem to be a solution to this problem (with Netgear firmware) other than rebooting the router two to ten times throughout the day. Some folks have had luck with DD-WRT (Kong’s Build). But, for some the problem persisted even after flashing with DD-WRT. It is amazing to me that this Wi-Fi problem, so well documented over the months since the R7000 release, has not been fixed. Yes, there have been numerous firmware updates, but the Wi-Fi unreliability continues
Will give it a few more days because I have been a loyal Netgear customer over the years, but if no permanent solution surfaces I will return it and get the ASUS RT-AC68u.
Come on, Netgear, you are having your $$$ handed to you by Asus. Fix this issue or you will not be able to stem the flood of customers jumping ship to your competitors.

4 out of 5 eggsWorkHorse

Pros: Goes a lot of time without power cycles or problems, extremely stable under hi loads of network traffic, i have 15 devices connected to this beast, it handles all the traffic you throw at it, and i mean "real hard network traffic" i can not be any happier with this beast.

Cons: This thing is huge, Only four data ports makes it practically unusable without a switch, wireless range is quite good even so i have concrete walls, GUI should be improved, its kind of "OLD CLASSY". Ready Shared USB is not worth a penny, you will do better with any other media server or NAS..

Other Thoughts: Excellent for hi tech homes, mid size offices, you can add multiple switches.

If you're looking for a high performance network traffic manager, you should take a serious look at this one

3 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review.

Pros: Still evaluating usit. Can't comment yet.

Cons: Ugly as Bill Cosby's newborn son. Read Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Had two problems with this router. 1. When the brand new Mac Book Pro tried to connect, I kept seeing an "Invalid Password" error, even though I knew the password was correct. My Samsung Note II phone connected fine, as did my Samsung and Lenovo laptop.

Also discovered that after a few days, the router wouldn't respond at all to connection attempts. Didn't even see the invalid password error. Rebooting fixed this one.

Called Netgear Tech support. The person on the phone would only lead me to the WPA-2 password page to check what was there. No other knowledge or suggestions. Less than useful.

Both problems solved via web search, and experience.

1. Apple computers seem to not like any capital letters in the middle of the SSID. I had set an SSID of "ObamaNet". When I changed this to "Obamanet", the Mac Book Pro connected instantly, and no longer showed the Invalid Password problem. Both Apple and Netgear techs had never seen this before.

2. Before you do ANYTHING with this router, update the firmware. The firmware on shipped units is buggy as heck. Updating the firmware seems to have fixed the second problem.

I'm willing to cut Netgear slack for shipping buggy firmware, and not knowing about the case problem with the SSID, but the tech support person should have suggested updating the firmware as a first step. In fact, if anyone calls Netgear tech support, the first order of business should be a firmware update.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't like Apple. Horrible tech support from NG.

Pros: High speed service when it works. Easy to configure interface.

Cons: Unstable. Requires rebooting weekly. Also, Apple doesn't like password many times, and refuses to connect. Netgear tech support could only check the spelling of the password configured on the unit. No other tech support skills. No understanding of WPA-2 handshaking, or troubleshooting. Unit getting returned for a different brand.

Apple network experts troubleshot unit. No problem seen on their end.

Other Thoughts: If you have a Mac, you might want to try something else.

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize that support was unable to assist you and want to offer further assistance. When you get a chance please email us at newegg@netgear.com with a copy and paste of your review. Also include any case numbers that you received from support.

Hope to hear from you soon.
