NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)

3 out of 5 eggs Has potential 08/05/2014

This review is from: NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)

Pros: Updated Review!!!!!!
When proper firmware is used this router has potential.
The 2.4GHz range is outstanding with stock antennas and really awesome when I replace the two outside antennas with upgraded 8dBi TP-Link ones. This router can handle tons of thru-put with ease. I only use this router as an access point and only for phones, laptops and tablets. My media center PC's are wired Cat7 to a proper 24port gig switch. Oh.... I hear the router is also overclockable...wink wink, nudge nudge. After having reboots multiple times a day, I have not had a reboot now in 5 days since I started using my current firmware.

Cons: This router is not for the faint of heart. It takes some tweaking and finding the correct firmware. I ended up using DD-WRT firmware by Kong version 24345M.
All the CPUs in these super 1750/1900AC rated routers run HOT. I had to create a router ducted cooling pad (like a laptop cooler) to bring the temps down to 46C. Others have reported CPU temps in the 70C+. There is not much thru-put on the 2.4GHz band. I limit my 2.4GHz to a mix of G and N and use the 5GHz only for wireless AC where it will pull in 1300Mbps. The 96Mbps is OK for me using 2.4 GHz for G and N. (laptops, phones, tablets) Is it me or are more companies putting out half baked products for the consumer to debug? Netgear should buy my next upgrade.

Other Thoughts: The firmware file name you are looking for is dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_STD_OLDD.bin
This firmware is using the OLDD (older) more stable broadcom wireless linux drivers. Any attempt to use a current DD-WRT ...NEW_D.BIN build results in random reboots several times a day for about 50% of the R7000 routers. Be sure to follow DD-WRT flashing instructions and flash FIRST with a factory-to-dd-wrt firmware then the final firmware.
