2 out of 5 eggsNot stable

Pros: This router is fast and can handle many clients.

Cons: Not stable at all. It will randomly reboot, under load or no load. I purchased two and both do the same thing.

Other Thoughts: I'm a network engineer and needed something in a pinch to setup a sales meeting and this router made me look like a fool with it's random reboots. I sure hope Netgear works on the quality of their products.

Manufacturer Response:

Please get in contact with our experts right away-- you can email us at Be sure to leave a copy and paste of your review along with your model/serial number.

We hope to get your R8000 working properly for you and can't apologize enough for the trouble.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat coverage, installed it in an office complex with concrete block walls.

Pros: Installed it in an office complex with concrete block walls and it still provided great coverage and fast too.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but not perfect

Pros: With latest firmware, connections are reliable with decent range. Three radios provide plenty of bandwidth for all devices.

Cons: The router is big. Open source firmware is still in infancy. The Xstream implementation (Smart Connect), which maps the two 5GHz radios as one access point, does not dynamically distribute client workload between the two radios as it should.

1 out of 5 eggsIgnorant staff

Pros: I am a Systems admin and Hold several MS certifications.
That said I contacted Netgear about an issue with the router, But have been given a run around asking for meaningless information, stalling time and not able to solve the problem.
If you looking for problems you should buy this router, otherwise stay far away from it

Cons: Problem with router and no tech support present just empty promises.

Manufacturer Response:

We are very sorry for your experience this for with the R8000 and want to give you advanced assistance. Please email us at with a copy and paste of your review-- also include any of the case numbers you received from support because we would also like to investigate what happened.

5 out of 5 eggsCheck Compatibility

Pros: This router is set to be a great addition to any home. Even though it has a large footprint that is not a distractor if you wall mount the router with covers to cover any hard lines you might install. I would prefer this router over others because of it's listed stats.

Cons: No cons but there are other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Certain internet providers modems are not compatible to this router. Check with your internet provider before purchase. Tried installing manually and using the wizard along with help from my internet provider with no success. Tried it at my sister's house and it installed without a hitch.

1 out of 5 eggsNo MAC filtering!

Pros: Very fast and improved range than my previous router.

Cons: Does not support MAC filtering! This is a basic security setting that all my previous routers supported. Please Google "r8000 access control doesn't work". Netgear uses the term "access control", but it is misleading because "access control" only prevents a connected device from accessing the internet. It does not prevent an intruder from hacking your LAN. Will be returning it ASAP.

Other Thoughts: I thought a flagship device would have every feature available. The UI is really basic and poorly done.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi afblue,

You should have no issues configuring MAC filtering on the R8000, following these instructions:

You can select to block all new devices from connecting, and manually enter the MAC addresses that you wish to block.

If you also hide your SSID and use strong encryption (WPA2) your network will be strongly secured against outside attacks.

If you have further concerns or comments, please get in touch with us right away at and our engineers will be happy to help.
