The major problem with the R6700 is the SSID retriction. It does not allow the same SSID to be used for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. It forces one to have multiple SSIDs on a single network. I do not wish to debate the pros and cons of multiple SSIDs but I would like to be given the choice to decide.
The R7000P "solved" this problem by introducing the "Smart Connect" option. With Smart Connect enabled, the R7000P makes 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands as one with one SSID and one password. Under the cover, it controls which radio is the better one to be used. On the paper, this approach sounds good. But in reality, it creates incompatibility problems for devices. Some devices such as the Amazon Kindle, just cannot connect to the R7000P WiFi network with Smart Connect enabled. Other devices can drop out or cannot reconnect without rebooting the R7000P or disabling the Smart Connect option.
In the end, this old router, R6250, is the best of all. I bought another one furbished as the backup.
though the netgear user app is very easy to use and works great. this was my second netgear router and i wish it worked as well as my old one. but instead it didn't so i went and got a new tp-link one instead and i love it
