There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Unfortunately, Netgear decided to dramatically change the internal components and then still sell it under the same name (R6700). With that said, Amazon has a little product alert indicating either R6700 or R6700v2. Well, they are shipping the R6700v2 which does not match some of the specifications shown on this page (in particular the CPU speed).
I know because after receiving a router that did not match, they offered to replace it and send the first version of the router (the one with the higher clock speeds as indicated on the actual product details) and ended up receiving the same thing (another V2).
I will say that for those interested in a router that will not be flashed with custom software or that will not use other more advanced functions a router can provide, this is no problem. For those of us that know the hardware and know what we are expecting, that is a problem.
I have it a 3 star because any company that makes an original version with better specs and then turns around and significantly changes this without changing the model number and making minor modifications on the box (see amazon's own photos - both boxes are pictured) simply does not deserve my trust. Speaking of ratings, many of the ratings you see here are lumped up with other Netgear products and also apply to the original more capable version.
I encourage you do your research and check reviews from different sources. This way, you will not be disappointed with the V2 that you will receive. I hope this help you make your decision!
Here's what I really like about this router.
- Easy to set up and despite it's features, it's very noob friendly
- Mobile apps that help you tweak and trouble shoot
- Firmware upgrades are easy and painless.
- Excellent throughput on all bands and channels.
- Excellent wireless range and signal strength on all bands.
Now onto the bad things, of which there is really only one.
Here's what happened. I've purchased two of these routers. One for me, one for the girlfriend. The 5Ghz band on my router has ceased to function. At first it was transmitting a very weak and unstable signal. Now it's just gone. I now have a very expensive 2.4Ghz wireless router.
And to be perfectly fair, the wired and 2.4Ghz bands/channels are still going like gangbusters. But I bought this for the 5Ghz, not the 2.4
- NetGear customer service and support is one of worst I have ever encountered.
If your product is less than 90 days old, they will be more than happy to assist you. If your product is more then 90 days old then they expect you to PAY THEM to "trouble shoot" your item. In my case, they wanted 49.99 for "Advanced" tech support to come to a conclusion that I already knew about. The router needed to be replaced.
I get that we (the customer) need to jump through their hoops to verify that the product is actually defective. But why should I have to pay you to replace your faulty product?
We went through the entire process and guess what... The router needed to be replaced. Was told that I would get a follow up email with instructions on what I needed to do next to complete the RMA 24 hours later, email never arrived. They cant even be bothered to do that much. Apparently if I want to RMA this device, Im expected to jump through even more hoops. NetGear, my time is more valuable than that. I'll simply wash my hand of this and move on.
TL:DR NetGear Customer Service and Support is a joke. If your breaks, don't bother with CS, simply buy something else.
Over the course of the next month, the smart devices grew angry. They couldn't chat freely and with reckless abandon. Sometimes they wouldn't ever hear each other. The Chromecast cried in solace. The smart lightbulbs faded to dark. Our guests grew angry with our unreliable network as Game of Thrones struggled to stream. We lost friends. Made enemies. At a certain point we decided enough is enough: it is time to throw more money at this problem.
That's how we ended up with this spaceship. I spent twenty minutes going through all the advanced settings to make sure it was set up well enough to satisfy my inner geek, then I unleashed it upon the internet. Game of Thrones streamed quickly. Netflix couldn't feed my router fast enough. My smart devices snapped to attention. The Chromecast wept, this time with tears of joy.
I am a hero. And all it took was a lot of money.
Top international reviews
While researching for my new router I narrowed down on Netgear Nighthawk x4S, and TP-Link Archer C2600 - both dual band (2.4+5 GHz) routers that compete in the AC2600 market slab. Both offer 800 Mbps theoretical max thoughput in 2.4GHz and 1733 Mbps in the 5GHz bands. Anything beyond is an overkill, because your client(laptop, desktop, tablet, smartphone, smart-TV) would be limited by the capability of the onboard wireless adapter. Here is why:
(i) The top wireless cards for laptops available today in the market (Intel Wireless AC8265 and Killer Wireless-AC 1535) are both capped at theoretical max throughput of 867 Mbps and 2x2:2 MU-MIMO. Highly likely that your laptop will have a previous gen wireless adapter than these two, which means that it would be a still slower device.
(ii) The top USB adapters: TP-Link Archer T9UH (4x4:4 - four-transmit x four-receive: quad-stream), ASUS USB-AC68 (3x4:3 - three-transmit x four-receive, tri-stream), D-Link DWA-192 ( 4x4:3 - four-transmit x four-receive: tri-stream), are all limited to AC1900 speeds (600Mpbs on 2.4GHz band and 1300Mbps on 5GHz band) . The Edimax EW-7833 ( 3x3:3 ) is capped at AC1750 i.e 450Mbps for 2.4GHz and 1300Mbps for 5GHz band.
Note that the number of spatial streams that can be multiplexed over the air is dependent on the number of transmitting modules.
(iii) The wifi modules onboard even top-end smartphones will also be no better than 2x2 ac wave2 limited to a max throughput of 867 Mbps.
Keeping this in mind, though there are more capable routers available in the market such as Netgear x8, ASUS RT-AC88U, ASUS -AC5300, the max theoretical throughputs will still be limited by the capability of your wifi clients. The Netgear Nighthawk X4S R7800 comes at a much cheaper price tag and is not short on features and hardware specs.
Significant Netgear Nighthawk X4S R7800 features:
1) Intuitive user interface and easy setup (some ISP providers restrict access to one ethernet MAC address per connection, so while setting up the new router make sure you either use the computer's MAC address, or copy the MAC address from old router to the new router)
2) Theoretical max throughput of 2600 Mbps (800 + 1733). I use an Edimax EW-7833UAC USB adapter and getting blistering(quite literally as the USB adapter heats up while streaming 1080 movies for hours) fast speeds on my lappy.
3) Dynamic QoS for optimal bandwidth prioritization by application and device.
4) Packed with features such as ReadyCLOUD, ReadySHARE printer and vault, Open VPN, Guest Network, and Device Whitelist/Blacklist, secure remote management and remote access of data. Support scheduled backups of your connected devices.
5) DLNA and USB compatibility for wireless media streaming from USB attached external HDD and/or NAS.
6) Hardware specs are second to none - Processor: Qualcomm Atheros IPQ8065 (1.7 GHz, 2 cores), Memory: 128 MB flash and 512 MB RAM. In comparison the TP-Link Archer ac2600 has a previous gen Qualcomm IPQ8064 1.4 GHz processor and a flash memory of just 32MB!
7) 2 USB 3.0 + 1 eSATA ports.
8) In comparison to other high-end routers, this one is not that heavy/bulky.
9) Supports the future-proof 160 MHz spatial stream.
10) Wifi range: I get decent coverage in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz bands in my flat (2000 sqft), so can't really complain.
11) Configurable in either of Router/Access Point/Bridge modes.
12) Comes with India specific power adapter.
1) The system time is stuck on Jan 1, 1970.
2) There is a nifty little feature ( "Turn off wireless signal by schedule") that allows you to schedule wireless downtimes (you may schedule the router to turnoff wifi signals in either or both bands overnight) to save power, but the feature is inaccessible due to some bug in both the pre-installed firmware, as well as the latest firmware available for dowload(V18.104.22.168)
Neither router reset nor updating to the latest firmware could solve these two bugs. Turns out NTP server update is disabled by default and there is no way to enable it via the GUI. SOLUTION: Finally came across an NTP patch of an earlier version and flashed it promptly - everything works perfectly now. Now the system time is accurate, as well as can access the "Turn off wireless signal by schedule" feature. Hope Netgear release an updated firmware version and not just a patch of an earlier version.

Router: Apart from the aforementioned software glitch, this router is perfect in all regards! Worth the money invested.
Seller: Prompt 2-day delivery by "Shopper's Pride". The offered deal was for INR 16,550/- which was close to import cost (~ INR 16,200) from amazon.com
Edit: After several months with this products, I'm upgrading my review from 3 to 1 stars. The firmware is not reliable. Since the latest firmware, my wireless devices cannot connect unless I reboot the router.
Every day for the past week when I come home, my business laptop and other wireless devices cannot connect. I have to physically reboot the router to establish a wifi connection. This isn't acceptable for a router at this price point. I'm going to have to install third party firmware, such as Tomato to get rock solid reliability at the expense of possibly a slower speeds.
I only kept it for a day.
Oh boy when I first saw the firmware, after waiting 5 minutes for it to boot, I was already having regrets. It's filled with cloud crap and Disney nonsense, who is the target public here?
- All pages take 4 seconds to load, almost EVERY 'save/submit' reboots the router, which takes about 3 minutes to do.
- It crashed twice times during that day, my room sitting at a comfortable 23c, nothing touching the router, and it runs hot 24/7.
- 5GHz just doesn't work, as you can see from many other reviews. Even if you're able to connect it, it will disconnect after a minute.
- 2.4GHz doesn't go over 40mbps...where does the 600mbps come from?
- My wired connection dropped to 6mbps at the end of the day, no reboots fixed that. I swapped to my old router and immediately hit the maximum speed of my ISP.
- QoS is messed up, read it up online, it all seems random. You can fine-tune it but it won't save correctly.
- Port forwarding didn't correctly apply the settings the first time I set it up, making me waste 30 minutes trying to understand why my server was not working. I had to remove the rule and add it again multiple times before it did its job.
- The wifi range is ok I guess.
1) Initially I used to have a single Wifi router and multiple wifi extenders to cover my 3 bed room flat and still used to get compliant from my kids or from my wife. They used to get slow data transfer speeds. I used to have an ACT Fibre 75 MBps line and still it used to be slow
2) Future of 1 Gbps data transfer is already available on this router, yes that is correct, with the 5 GHZ data transmission option on two channels - Channel 36 and Channel 141 you get a higher data transfer throughput rather than a 2.4 GHZ data transmission mode. Recently ACT Fiber upgraded to 150 Mbps and my router was already having upto 1 Gbps data transfer through put.
3) Beam forming and support to ensure that all the nooks and corner is covered and also upto 30 devices, with multiple work loads e.g. primary TV, secondary TV, multiple phone, tablets, laptop etc.
4) It allows to connect one USB 2 GB HDD external hard drive that you can access from anywhere, so media sharing is already available
5) Remote access to printers is available also by installing a driver on your remote desktop, again awesome
1) Bit pricey, but as stated top of the line wifi router (Netgear AC3200 Nighthawk X6 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router) worth every paise.
Antes de instalar el router no podía, por ejemplo, ver clips en youtube, descargar/subir archivos y navegar al mismo tiempo. Ahora sí puedo, sin haber tenido que contratar un internet más caro con el proveedor. También ayuda a que varios aparatos estén conectados al mismo tiempo sin que le baje la velocidad a ninguno.
La instalación no fue tan fácil como dice la guía, pero nada que no pudiera resolver con google y prendiendo/apagando el módem y el router.
Una vez instalado, todo funciona de maravilla. Yo buscaba mejorar mi velocidad de internet y eso logré.
Worked fine throughout this time (though needing occasional reboots). The hdd access is fine, and can be used with a printer too.
The bad: My r7800 conked off all of a sudden. Just a solid orange light. Tried whatever they mentioned on their troubleshooting pages to no avail. Contacted CC, and they asked me to send my invoice for validation. Validation took 5 days ! Post validation, they informed me that they don't have this router in stock anywhere in India (whoa !), and cannot commit on timelines for replacement.
The support is abysmal, the CC executives are rude and just want to close the call.
You can have the best product, and be ruined due to poor customer support. That's what is happening with Netgear. Never gonna purchase a Netgear router again.
I consider myself a power user, and this fits my needs entirely. The range is excellent; I can mow my lawn and continue to stream music without using cellular data.
The stock firmware is excellent, and runs smoothly. I had no issues with the router while running with Netgear's software. Unfortunately I like to tinker with electronics, and I couldn't play with every setting; Now I have my router flashed with OpenTomato. I have it directly connected my Fiber ONT while it runs a FTP server and OpenVPN Server.
To keep things running smoothly, I have my router setup to reboot every two days. This may not be needed, but I have a rock solid internet connection that runs autonomously for months. (great if you are away from home for a few weeks and you would like to VPN into the house to access files)
I highly recommend this router if you have above average internet usage in your home, or if you need some extra range.
I hooked up my LG OLED E6 55 INCH TV with this router also my AV receiver Onkyo 555 and Samsung UBD K8500 4K UHD BLU RAY player. Setting QOS was bit easy and i reffered the netgear manual which help me a lot for setting the highest streaming preference.
This router is absolute future proof and I cant say much about wifi coverage but it covers my house pretty well.
Rest if you are in extreme streaming like I tested with my LG OLED E6 for Dolby Vision and HDR content then i will definitely recommend this router.
El diseño es muy limpio y elegante, luce bastante bien en cualquier habitación.
La calidad de la señal de Wifi es excelente y recibió varias actualizaciones de firmware tan pronto lo conecté.
En todos los lugares de mi casa tengo Wifi y la velocidad es la misma por UTP que por Wifi.
Red de invitados con aislamiento de dispositivos, pero, sólo te permite tener 2 SSID's (para cada banda) y si quieres más como para dispositivos IoT te las tendrás que arreglar de otra forma o agregarlos a la de invitado.
La instalación sí bien es sencilla requiere su tiempo y conocimientos técnicos de redes básicos dado que no cuenta con instrucciones claras o un manual impreso para configurarlo adecuadamente, lo que recomienda Netgear es usar su app de configuración, la descargué pero no fue de ayuda, no funciona adecuadamente, tuve que ingresar mis credenciales de PPoE varias veces sin éxito, al final opté por no usar la app ni "Netgear Genie" para esto y lo configuré manualmente.
En Netgear Genie nunca me piden mis credenciales de PPoE, sólo preguntan por una dirección IP estática y si no la tienes lo más que hace es clonar la MAC de tu router anterior, evidentemente esto no funcionará.
Su software de "ayuda" durante la instalación es deficiente, esto es molesto en especial para un producto tan caro y podría ser muy complicado para usuarios sin experiencia o que esperan una solución "plug and play".
Lo último es que mi tasa de transferencia es menor a la que me da mi ISP en ~40%, tanto para carga como para descarga, ni estando conectada por UTP Cat 6 puedo disfrutar de toda la velocidad por la cual estoy pagando, este problema muchas personas lo tuvieron (pueden buscarlo en inglés) y las "soluciones" que hay en línea no funcionan.
A la fecha no tengo idea de que ocasiona el problema de velocidad, con el ruteador de mi ISP sí tengo la velocidad contratada.
