"Best router I’ve ever owned! Great for fortnite!" - by Michael J. Snow (Fairbanks, Alaska)
I just moved to Fairbanks, Alaska and surprisingly they had fiber internet intown! I had a cheap router I bought here for like $90 while I was still living in Arizona. It worked when I moved here but I could only get about 110mbps speed on each device. Plus I was getting 15ms jitter on my old router. This one is amazing! My jitter dropped down to 1.7ms and I get 700mbps speed while my entire family is connected! We have about 12 device logged into it ranging from 3 iphones, 2 apple 4K TVs, 1 smart tv, 2 iPads, 2 laptops, home security system and a PS4.

Now for the gaming part... I’ve been playing fortnite battle royal since it came out last year. I have 3 solo wins and 12 squad wins. I noticed immediately after I installed this new router my shots were hitting 2-3 times more frequently ... full review

"Asus Rt-AC3200 vs. Netgear X6 vs. D-Link AC3200 ***updated 4/14***" - by D. Stines
I have tried all 3 of these routers. I have had more time to play with the Netgear X6 and Asus Rt-AC3200. My internet is through Comcast. I get about 127 Mbps down and 12 up. So far I find they are all pretty much ok. I feel like if you drop $300 on a router it should be amazing. I know you will find people that cry and say expect bugs for new technology and I should be hung for saying this. Yes I do expect some but for flag ship routers I expect them to be squashed very quickly. So far they all have been coming out slow. And by the way I am coming from an old Netgear R6300.

RANGE
So far range is not that impressive of any of the three. I expected more. I do get a signal in all of my house and outside but I ... full review

"the router of today for the home OF THE FUTURE" - by J. Frank (San Francisco)
What's a "tri-band" router? In extremely rudimentary, lay terms, the Nighthawk has the strength of three routers. It can handle three times the number of connections a single-band router ever could (presumably), yet all the devices are able to "see" one another and play nice together. So, yeah, it's expensive. It's quite possible, in fact, that you don't really even need a tri-band router.

And then there's us.

I just walked through our apartment; between my husband and me, I count 25 web-enabled devices. That number doesn't include light bulbs. Most of these gadgets are connected to the Internet *at this moment.*

Our friends make fun of us because we have totally embraced the concept of the "Internet of Things." Besides the usual gadgets (iPads, phones, game consoles), we use a Nest thermostat, a Nest Cam, Philips Hue bulbs, an Amazon Echo on our kitchen countertop, and a Sonos.

Far from automating our home, ... full review

"Great Router Even Though I Went to an Orbi" - by HLB_In_TX
Great router. I replaced it with an Orbi system, but here's what I liked:

1. Great signal strength. I have a 1/4 acre lot with a long rectangular yard, and I got 2/3-75% signal at the far corner outside my fence.
2. Speed on wireless and wired connections. No complaint there.
3. Netgear software is excellent (on routerlogin.com).
4. Signal penetration - I have a 2 story house, 11 years old; signal worked fine upstairs at farthest corner from router.
5. Build & design: I expect to have 20-25 devices connected to my network at peak, mostly wireless. I had no concerns that this would overheat or shut down - lots of ventilation. I would have mounted it on a wall; it's black and the LEDs are small.

I ultimately switched to an Orbi because I wanted MU-MIMO, and found an RB50K (kit) on Amazon Warehouse for $25 more than this. Otherwise I would have kept ... full review

"Excellent switch for the price" - by MyOnlineOpinions (Arizona)
This is a great switch. I've purchased many, many Netgear switches for small businesses and homes over the years. Bought this switch to replace and 8 port and a 4 port...cleaner installation and wiring. Have never had a failure. I find the negative reviews here to be curious -- wonder if they're using cheap patch cables -- I don't scrimp when it comes to cables. Or plastic switch models. I only buy metal. These switches simply work. Period. And the LED displays tell you clearly the connection speed per port. Highly recommended.

"after looking through reviews and determining my needs for home wifi this model seemed the best. It was very easy to setup it was ..." - by John O.
I had a Linksys router before and needed a replacement, after looking through reviews and determining my needs for home wifi this model seemed the best. It was very easy to setup it was up and running with minutes. I was able to connect all my devices (2 TVs, 2 Tablets, 2 Phones, video game console, Fire Stick and Chromecast) within 30 minutes. That includes labeling them in the app, which I feel is one of the best features of the Linksys routers. All in all great buy for the price and I get to have 2 wifi network on 2 different frequencies (2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz). I highly recommend buying this product especially if you run a lot of devices and do a lot of streaming.

"Very nice router & features" - by Lantana Al (DFW, TX)
My background: Software developer that uses computers almost all day long. I have business class Verizon FiOS and 5 static IPs.

Here's my experience & thoughts with this router:

* Setup was pretty easy. However, there was some browser quirkiness. If you have trouble then I suggest trying a different browser.
* In case you need it, the factory default username/password is admin/admin and the default IP is 192.168.1.1.
* I went to Administration->Firmware Upgrade and the router checked for an update, found one, and installed it. Pretty painless.
* Access the router's web interface via HTTPS is possible, but will give you a certificate error that you will have to allow/override.
* The web interface is pretty easy to use. I like it.
* I set up 2 guest networks, one on 2.4GHz, and one on 5GHz. Very easy and so far working great. It allows up to 3 guest networks on each band.
* The traffic ... full review

"Powerful Far Reaching Router" - by Consulltus (new jersey)
I purchased both the TP-Link AC1750 Archer C7 & AC1900 Archer C9. Both routers are excellent but I decided on the C9. From my experience the distance on the C9 is better than the C7. The C7 did reach every area of my house and property but I found a stronger signal on both 2.4GHz & 5GHz signals with the C9 in the same areas. The 5GHz signal on the C9 also reached further. I am in a 4000sqft house and 1/2 acre property. The C9 router reaches every inch of my house and every acre of my property. Going through 4 walls and upstairs I get 3 bars of connection in my master bathroom. My previous set up of having 2 routers on each end of my house only yield 2 bars. At the furthest end of my property line ... full review

"If you have any tech smarts, this is the wi-fi access point for your home. If you don't, but only need wi-fi, BUY IT!" - by ATechGuy
I have run my own tech firm (managed service provider) for over 15 years. We deal with about 15% of our customers as residential clients (usually employees of our business clients) or, they are work-at-home entrepreneurs. We're always being asked about what wireless routers to use. From our perspective, the best solution is a wired router plus an access point. The router typically last 2-3x the life of the radios of a good access point. Also, when dealing with a large house (say 3K+sqft) having more than one access point (AP) is suggested for really good wi-fi. So, for the smaller homes, we usually are ambivalent on the choice of a "wireless router" because it rarely makes a big difference.

The Google OneHub solution is an interesting approach for the residential user that doesn't typically employ an IT firm to install and support the wireless.

As an MSP, we NEVER use the ... full review

"Best Router for under $100" - by Christopher White
Quite possibly the best router I have ever had. Some would think that only spending $50 on a router makes it a cheap, not functional one. That is completely not the case with this one. I have been purchasing products from Mediabridge for a while now and they have all lived up to the quality you expect at an affordable price. This router handles all of the tasks it's required to do. My house definitely puts stress on routers and I can never get more than 6 months out of any of the name brand ones bought in the past. With 2 Xbox's, 3 Chromecasts, 3 Laptops, and a smart tv, this one has never slowed or had to be restarted. Highly recommend this for any household looking to save money and get a high quality product form a great company.

"This thing is great. I originally bought to use as a bridge" - by Tom
This thing is great. I originally bought to use as a bridge, but moved to my main router/AP. The screen is incredibly handy. Set up on the spot wherever you want without 192.168.1.1...what a relief! I know it may sound lazy, but to set up everything with an easy GUI right then and there is a delight. I have not ran speed tests yet, but the setup alone is worth a premium.

"Don't get too excited." - by Low Standards
So, coming from a wrt1900ac that starting just having the random reboots during heavy network traffic, I order this refurbished wrt32x with high hopes.
Lets start with the good; this router is sexy af! The pics don't do it justice. The black case with the blue leds is very sharp. And although I really don't like blue leds, the lights on this router are just the right brightness. It arrived in a plain brown Linksys box in a foam tray. It had one tiny scuff on it, but otherwise it was in good shape, I'd say 8.5 out of 10. Initial setup is easy, actually there really isn't much to setup which I'll get to in a minute.
Now the not so good: Unit was asking for a password when I first hooked it up, this required holding the red button down on the back for about 15 seconds. Tried again. There's ... full review

"Netgear AC2600 gave me major speed increases." - by EricNSTL
I couldn't be more pleased. I replaced a Cisco N4200 Router that was about 6 years old. I always just assumed that my slow internet speeds were due to my ISP. Prior to this upgrade, I was getting speeds between 5 to 20 mbs, I was continually having my cell phones drop off the wifi and long buffering while streaming TV. Now with the Netgear AC2600, my internet speed are coming in between 90 to 120 mps. I have not had any dropped WIFI from my phones and virtually no buffering on my TV's.
As a test, I tried to load it up. I was streaming 2 Fire Stick TV's with HD movies, 2 cell phones and 1 Ipad with youtube HD videos at the some time. It handled it perfectly. I was truly amazed.
Set up was a breeze. I am not ... full review

"Great product that is capable, and easy to set up." - by Ryan Slemmer
Great product with easy setup. Replaced a cisco/linksys router with this that had been acting up for a few weeks. This was easy to set up, and is actually faster than what I had previously. The range is pretty good compared to what I had before, as well as compared to standard issue Xfinity all in one devices.
