Love Netgear routers but this ones are junk

 

We run some 10+ routers from Netgear WNR612 to R7000/7100 and other brands for many years and, in general, all are very stable though I prefer Netgear because their interface.

Easy to setup and flexible to configure. The software allows to block unwanted domains and 'services' to keep kids save and advertising out

We bought two of them, one from Newegg. Both ran hot, had a poor range under 11ac and no advantage for 11b/g/n networks compared to other routers from Netgear and other brands ; Both died after about a year. The latter is not really a con because I was...

I have updated this router to the latest firmware and still this drops connectivity to my mobile devices when watching video every 5 minutes. This is a big deal with a household of over 15 wireless devices. I wish Netgear would fix this.

Faster than my old Wireless G router ; Good parental controls through OpenDNS

Drops wireless connectivity constantly ; Not good for households with 10 or more wireless devices

Great Case

 

It's fast while it worked

This router need reboot at-least once a day, it's very frustrating. Save yourself from headache don't buy it

Piece of Junk

 

Avoid. I talked to Netgear tech support and they were useless... of course.

Works great when it works

Constantly needs rebooting. Sometimes only after a few hours, sometimes after a day but at least every 1.5 days it needs rebooting. Very annoying. I did not have this problem with my Linksys routers

works great, but...

 

Love the color and button design.

compact power house with great looks. great wired capabilities

I have an Alienware m17x-r2 with a Dell DW1520 wireless N Half Mini-card in it that seems to have trouble connecting to my R6100-AC1200... It'll connect to the network, but not have internet access. I have Updated drivers, deleted drivers, and so on,...

Adequate performance but not reliable

 

Makes a little bit of noise as well. Nothing major, just noticeable when you pick it up. Does not support beam forming or Gigabit LAN, but anyone who buys it should know that going in. Web interface was a little buggy, but as hopefully one only has to...

It is rather cheep for an AC router, and the range has not disappointed me. Mind you, I wouldn't expect it to cover a large house, but for an apartment it is perfectly fine. Speeds are about what I expected

It is not reliable. End of story. Every 1-3 days it simply stops broadcasting the 5GHz band and although the 2.4GHz signal remains, nothing I own (all 4 devices) can connect to it. To be fair, simply resetting the router fixes all this, but that is...

Very lacking

 

Unless you are going to buy this, plug it in with zero configuration changes, stay away. It lacks in every category compared to nearly all comparable routers. Older Netgear routers have been good to us. This new one has changed our brand. We are...

Mostly easy to configure the router for basic home use ; Has not died yet (we might consider this a con...)

We purchased this router to replace an earlier Netgear Wireless N router that was awesome. The old one died from one of the main chips frying, melted in a nasty way after 3 years ; This router wireless has major problems dropping clients, clients can...

Polished software, easy setup, but not very fast.

 

Other Thoughts: I tested 2.4GHz and 5GHz performance from three locations in a 2200Sq Ft 2-floor house. These should duplicate common usage. I used a Lenovo Thinkpad T510 corporate laptop with DWA-182 802.11ac adapter. Test Locations: a. "In the other...

Review summary: This is a great little router with a very slick, refined, polished setup process and equally high-quality admin tool. It's priced well, but its wireless and wired performance lags more expensive 802.11ac routers ; List of pros ; Great...

Please keep in mind the cost of the router while reading the cons, and keep in mind that most cons listed are minor ; List of cons ; It's slow. At least, slower than other 802.11ac router's I've tested. It's still worlds faster than 802.11a/b/g. See...
