Customer Reviews

Very fast speeds, easy to install and great range!
Carlos Carvajal
Despite changing channels, every few days it completely drops the connection and I have to reboot the router to get the connection back.
Douglas Neal
The WiFi signal was really strong throughout my house, and I was getting full five bar reception even at the far end of my yard.

I wouldn't normally start off a review with an autobiography but for a device like this - especially considering what I'm going to say about it - I think it's important information for the review reader to have.

I've been in network engineering for almost 20 years and have been designing networks for Fortune 10 companies for the past decade. I've sold, used, configured, and even helped design networking devices in both my professional and personal life. I've used a half dozen different brands over the years here in my home but I've been a loyal Netgear customer for about 6 years. I've also been an active participant in Netgear consumer beta testing and a couple of the Netgear devices you see on Amazon today are the result of input from myself and others. I've had a very productive relationship with Netgear and they've been very good to me during that time.

My first impression of this router was simply "wow". The 5Ghz range on this unit was easily 20% better than both the Netgear WNDR3700 and the Asus RT-N66U. There were places in my house where I couldn't get a reliable 5Ghz connection before that now had superb coverage. The R7000 was instantly worth the money. I have approximately 35 devices on my network with two external Access Points hard-wired to the router. Total throughput increased slightly on the entire network but since I don't have any 802.11ac clients, I couldn't push the router to see what kind of max throughput I could get.

There's not really much more I can say than that. Like most of the Netgear routers I've used before, it took about 10 minutes to configure and after that everything just worked. I don't have to worry about interference (closest neighboring network is at least 2 miles away).

This is the best wireless WIFI router available at this time (IMHO). I had a very good router installed in my home and a secondary powerful AP (Access Point) that covers several acres of land. I can get a WIFI connection in some directions almost 500 yards away from my home. I removed that primary router (ASUS) and installed this one and then I took signal strength readings on the 2.4 GHz band at varying distances within my home and on different floors. The results show that on longer distances this router's WIFI signal strength is more than 10 times stronger than the one I removed. I will post that detailed data later.

When you unbox this router you will be shocked at its size. It is more than twice as large as my other routers and it takes up a lot of desktop real estate. Its performance makes it worth it though, especially if you have a larger home and need longer transmission distances.

What's in the box?
* A high quality Ethernet cable to go from your cable modem to the WIFI router. The cable is 60 inches long.
* An AC power supply to power the router. It is rated to operate from 100 to 240 VAC and 50/60 Hz. It is UL approved. The cable is 74.5 inches long from the tip of the AC plugs to the tip of the DC output plug. The power supply outputs 12 VDC at 3.5 Amps.
* Three adjustable antennas that can be used to adjust the directionally of the WIFI coverage. They are also used to amplify the WIFI signal output from the router.
* A brief instruction manual
* There is no detailed user manual or disk included. (My only negative)

On the top of the unit is a label and there is also one on the bottom that list the name of the default SSID and the network password key.

My Experience: 19 years in the IT industry as a Systems Administrator. I have worked for the largest companies on the planet (IBM, HP, Intel) and then did 10 years in the start-up world. I know how to put a network together. I know what works and I know when it doesn't.

Like a lot of the reviewers here, most of us seem to be coming from either older routers or replacing Asus routers (at an alarming rate I might add from what I have been reading.)

Like a lot of you, I am ALSO replacing an ASUS Router I have had for about a year now. It's not that I wasn't okay with the Asus router I just needed more from the router!

I live on the East Coast and I have a tri-tiered house and getting a signal to the basement has been a challenge. I ended up having to put in a powerline Network (el-sucko when it comes to speed) and wanted to improve that throughput several times over. I also have, at times 3 kids who LOVE (and I mean LOVE) videos and online gaming over a wireless connection. I needed a router that could keep up and going from a single core CPU router to a dual core with TWICE the throughput sounded like what I needed as my house has the following (all talking to my router):

- 4 Roku's (HD)
- 4-6 phones
- 6 tablets
- 4 DVR's
- 4 TV's (wireless and LAN)
- 4 Blu Ray players (firmware updates)
- 2 Surround Sound systems (firmware updates)
- 2 gaming systems (if you have teenagers, you have gaming systems): 1 - XBOX 360 and One PS3. Both wirless connections.
- 3-4 laptops (depends on which kids happen to be home)
- 1 Desktop machine (mine, multiple NIC's and active connections)
... and I believe a Partridge in a pear tree (up in the attic!)

Bottom line...
