"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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.

"Fantastic performance" - by Rulk
So far so good. I have owned numerous wifi solutions for my house. So far none of them have been able to keep up with me. This one has no problem at all. The QoS works wonderfully, the setup was easy and it's super snappy. I have had to reset router similar to this all of the time. So far I have yet to even have to reboot this. If I had to come up with one negative the only thing I can come up with is that it is a gaming router through and through. What I mean by this is that this thing is really large and has super bright LEDs. I personally do not care about appearance, performance and stability are the only things I care about. This does both equally well.

Decided to drop it down to four stars because there is no way to customize QoS. ... full review

"pretty big unit - make sure it will fit - does the job" - by evofxdwg (Middle GA)
Works well. My devices seem a little faster, especially the ones that can use the upper band. I have had to reset it 2 or 3 times in a month or so but still using DOCISS 2 cable modem with it. That might be a problem. Seems about the same frequency of required resets as with the N wireless it replaced. Also not paying for fastest internet service. Haven't had time to upgrade.

Setup was only slightly confusing. I did have trouble with setting them up as infrastructure printers but I think that turned out to be due to old drivers on the computers, one very declining-health inkjet (which is now dead), and incorrect "wake on print job" setting on a printer. The other, hp laser jet, seems to now be working fine from both a Mac and a PC.

Signal strength seems about the same as my old 'N' router ... full review

"Decent Router with Some Notable Quirks" - by BluegrassPicker
A majority of the positive reviews for this router are aimed primarily at its touch-screen interface. Personally, I don’t care much about that feature; you can do basic setup there, but more advanced configuration requires the web interface. What I do care about is range and reliability.

My Touch P5 is located in the basement, and its signal reaches to the second story of our house, where it is still reasonably strong. In contrast to the old Netgear router that it replaced, the Touch P5 is very fast; a computer connected via wi-fi on the main floor of our house shows the same results on speed tests as the basement computer that’s hard-wired to the router.

UPDATE 7/9/2017: The default settings for IPv6 do not work with Comcast. Here are the settings that do work for me. IPv6 ON; Internet Connection Type: Dynamic IP ... full review

"It got the job done ... and a nasty job it was" - by Scott Meyer
This is an excellent product which solves a maddening first world problem: horrible wi-fi coverage within your own home, wife child and self griping about phones and laptops and cable constantly dropping, breaking up, even working well enough at random moments to infuriate friends and business contacts on the other end of the line , phone company and cable company unable to help (I got a booster which didn't help at all) ... this router is not only VERY powerful, it has an extender mode that will ADD to the power of your existing router and most importantly, it has an absolutely CRACK SUPPORT TEAM willing and able to do whatever it takes to MAKE YOUR WI FI WORK. Because frankly, every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way ... no wait a minute, that's Tolstoy ... every house is different architecturally, has different walls and doors, coverage ... full review

"Very nice router! - No remote management." - by Mark Burfeind (HOT SPRINGS, AR)
Very nice router! I am disappointed in Linksys though. This router does not have an app for remote management. It also won't connect to the Linksys Smart account, because it is not compatible. This is still a really nice router for the price. I really enjoy being able to see my up and down stream live through the web management. I also like that it has Killer wireless optimization. I really love this router, and would buy it again.

"Ridiculously Awesome!!" - by C. Dickens (United States)
I'm a tech guy. Love all things tech. I had leased a combo router / modem from Time Warner Cable for $10 monthly thinking their products had to be the best for their network. While speed met claims - the range of their ARRIS modem/router was awful. I have a 1000 square foot home .... And there were dead spots.

I have a SONOS wireless system that was having hiccups as well.

I would be less than 20 feet from the router - and have dropouts.

In desperation - I picked this unit up along with a Surfboard modem here on Amazon.

Called Time Warner and actuvated my new modem .... Hooked up this Beauty ....and BOOM.

Coverage all over my house!!! No more dropouts with SONOS! Speed tests confirmed that speeds were 50 MBPS or above!

I cannot endorse this product more heartedly. I hope the engineer that designed this is on an island and ... full review

"Don't Be Fooled by the Price" - by L.B.
I wasn't expecting much from this Tenda router because of how cheap it is. However, I was WAY wrong about that. :D

Within 15 minutes of receiving it, I had the router set up and working beautifully. It's very easy to use! Also, after having it for several weeks now, I'm pleased to report that my network performance has never been better.

I love that the dual band tech lets me set up dedicated networks for different device needs. I've put our smart tv's on the faster network to better accommodate streaming, and our computers/mobile devices are paired with the primary network. Being able to direct traffic this way, so to speak, has improved the overall user experience for everyone!
