The manufacturer commented on this review (What's this?)
Hi Uwa Hale,

The R8500 can handle a large number of devices on both the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz bands, and if you are experiencing problems with some of your 2.4 GHz devices not connecting this should be looked into. Can you please email us your contact information along with a link to your review to netgearteam@netgear.com, and we will be happy to work with you.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team
