Motorola's MR1700 AC1700 WiFi Gigabit Router is able to transmit high-speed WiFi data over a wide area, even to distant rooms in large homes. One reason is 4 antennas for the 2.4 GHz frequency band, the best band for sending WiFi to distant locations. The MR1700 also performs very well in apartments and condominiums that are bombarded by wireless noise from neighbors. Model MR1700’s wireless performance is outstanding when used with smartphones, HDTVs, computers, game stations, and other wireless devices. This WiFi router has better range than much more expensive routers, which typically have only 3 antennas for the important 2.4 GHz frequency band. MR1700 setup is fast and easy, with phone, email, and Web support from the USA. 2 year warranty from Motorola.

It sends a much stronger signal so my laptop can pick up the signal fine anywhere in our 1400 sqft home. That part is so much better than any wi-fi router I've ever had.
But the AC1700 seems to slow the received signal speed down considerably. I did the Speed Test many times and here are the results: By a LAN connection straight out of my cable modem, I almost always get better than 80 Mbps downloads and 20 Mbps uploads on my Asus laptop. When I connect the laptop via a LAN connection to the router output terminals, the results are almost similar, so that part is OK. But when I connect the laptop via the 2.4 GHz transmission, the downloads are almost always only 1/4 of the data above, though the uploads seem similar to the LAN connection. On a few rare checks, the wi-fi transmission is used, it has worked almost as well the the LAN connection but very seldom. I can't prove why the poor wi-fi result but a previous rather weak-signaled wi-fi generally had good speed; I just needed not to go far from the AC1700 device. It is really curious what makes such a difference. The 5 GHz transmissions work when the laptop is very close to the wi-fi router, but not well enough when not close, so I don't ever try to use if.
Indeed the Motorola AC1700 is frustrating since it often bugs what you are trying to do. It is also rather complicated to make changes to the password or SSID name, things that were easy to do on my previous TP-Link AC1750 wi-fi router that was too weak to work well at my usual work location
Before closing: Amazon did a great job getting the product to my location in 2 days and excellent condition.

Motorola AC1700 Dual-Band WiFi Gigabit Router with Extended Range, Model MR1700
TP-Link AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router - Qualcomm Processor (Archer C7)
The setup is very easy and the interactive menu is very nice. I was able to setup ports just fine. It also worked fine with magic jack.
The range on 5G was no better than the Netgear Wifi I was replacing.
As on par with the rest of the reviewers - the 5G wifi is lacking.
I could pull line speed of my Comcast connection about 10 feet from this wifi at 120mbps but when upstairs in the condo the
signal was no better and I could only get about 30mpbs max from my Comcast Surfboard modem.
Usually got about 15mbps. When I took the Apple Macbook to within 10 feet I got full speed on 5G wifi.
I played around with all the setting on 5G - different channels, Auto channel, long preamble. Some settings on 5G and I could not log back in at
IF the 5G was better and the signal much stronger upstairs I would have kept it.
mind you it had to go up vertically one floor and across about 40 feet.
10/19/18- I just wanted to update-router is still working well! Excellent signal throughout my home. I did a factory reset on it, thinking it may help with issues with my spectrum tv app, and thought I messed it up. So I called support and with very little wait time, the technician got my router running right and tried to help with my roku tv and spectrum app. It appears it's a spectrum issue as everything else works. My wireless internet is back up and running
It was my error why it wasn't working (I reconnected wrong). Technician was very knowledgeable about everything and friendly. I'd definitely recommend this router as product has worked well and support is excellent!
