Easy and Powerful,
This review is from: NETGEAR Wireless Router - AC 1200 Dual Band Gigabit (R6200) (Personal Computers)
With the router that came with my high speed internet service, I had been having sporadic coverage in most of my house including a "weak" signal on my internet enabled TV in the very next room. Streaming movies and even music was hit and miss. I considered getting a range extender but as we all know, the chain is only as strong as the weakest link. After reading several reviews and product specs, I narrowed my search to the 6200. I was a bit concerned about the setup, but it truly was as easy as NETGEAR claims. I was up and running, two minutes tops. Phones, tablets, and TVs were all connected with ease. Then came the range test. The TV went from "weak" to "STRONG" and I'm no longer tethered to the lower floor of my house while working from home. I maintained a consistent signal upstairs, downstairs, and outside. Lastly, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the USB ReadySHARE feature. Simply plug in your external media drive and have instant access to all of your office bound content on all of your other devices operating on your wireless network. Starting with this device before adding to my home network with other devices was definitely the right choice as a range extender is now nonessential. Awesome product.

I know nothing about this stuff but I'm having problems like this to and was wondering if the AC1200 NetGear is compatable with qwest WI & Phone?

Call quest since their coverage is different in many places.

This review is for a different router entirely. It is for the R6200 and is posted in the R6300 section. There's a $50 difference between the two routers.

Paul, you need to check again. This review is for the R6200 and is posted in the R6200 section. Not sure what you were reading, but your comment is wrong

Piggybacking on the top review, there is a dd-wrt version out for both r6200v1 and r6200v2. Just google "r6200vx dd-wrt", the x being your version number.
