Top reviews from the United States
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!
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.
Two months ago I was upgrading my home network from old 100mbs to gigabit. Did a lot of research and this R7000P seemed to be the best compromise between cost and capability. My son was also upgrading his home and agreed with my assessment. He bought first. Router was excellent so I bought mine shortly thereafter in mid March 2018.
It installed easily, plugged it in and it worked perfectly. Setup was a breeze. My home LAN is a mix of wireless and ethernet devices-two computers, a printer, five NAS devices connected through switches, some phones and tablets. Everything connected, the ethernet ports at 1000mbps.
Fast forward seven weeks. One bright May morning I looked at the router and noticed that the LAN ports LED indicators had changed from white to amber. The ports had switched to 100mbps. Not a good thing.
Speed tests were surprising-the wireless part of the router was still running as fast as always at 39MBps. The ethernet ports could barely hit 6MBps.
So I did all the things one normally does to show love for electronics. Rebooted, power cycled, reset to factory specs, flashed new firmware, direct connected computer to the modem(to verify the modem wasn't in some way failing) and to each lan port through brand new cat 5 and cat 6 cable. I even yelled at it hoping intimidation would work. No joy. The router management software reported and speed tests confirmed that the ethernet ports were under 100mbps, not even close to 1000mbps. Phone support was less than helpful.
It's beyond 30 days so I can't return it to Amazon and if I spend hours navigating a support system directing me do do all the troubleshooting I have already done I might eventually be able to return it for exchange. I pay shipping both ways, wait a week or three with no network.
About a week after mine went wonky my son's failed in exactly the same way. He bought his at Walmart and had no trouble returning it and getting an ASUS.
So, the most expensive router I have ever owned is operating in cripple mode. When I can afford it I'll buy something else. Not Netgear.
One thing I did learn is that the 21,500+ reviews are not necessarily for this router. There is a filter switch near the review stars that lets you see only confirmed purchasers of this specific router-and that is lots less. Turns out I'm not the Lone Ranger-others have had similar issues.
All of which is a very long-winded way of explaining how the R7000P managed to earn a single star.
Top reviews from other countries
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.
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.
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.
