    I’ll have to give this 5 Stars. This thing nearly quadrupled my speeds and is fairly consistent . I had an old Netgear 300 for the past 4 years. I upgraded all my consoles, got a 4k tv this past December.All of my streaming Media that my family uses such as PS Vue YouTube etc was taking a toll on my old routers bandwidth. Plus I work at home as a CCTV engineer so I have a bunch of equipment that’s uses my network. It just could not handle the traffic anymore though it still worked and limited to around 20mbps. I have a high 100mbps plan with my ISPThis router totally fixes the issue and performs beyond my expectations.I will say this I did not upgrade the firmware because of user feed back. I left it the way it was because I Don’t have issues with it on the current software It’s on. Doesn’t matter what type of device it is upgrades always have something broken in the firmware and have to wait till the next fix. I will say in this case these companies nickel and dime you for support when they should honor their warranties and back their products.Update: I am a picky person so don’t let this affect your decision. This is an amazing router (Netgear AC 1900 ) and like I said it nearly quadrupled my speeds .But because of the higher model (r7500v2) is almost the same price on a flash deal through Amazon and got a gift card for my birthday I will have to return this one and get the model that is one step up. I will always want the higher model if I find a great deal that is my preference.. . If this one does not work out out I will return it. And keep the Netgear AC 1900 but I highly recommend this router even though out is almost 3 years old. We don’t upgrade routers like we do phones so keep that in mind. So I strongly believe this or these routers should be at good , up to current standards and future proof for at least 5 yearsUpdate again: so I have had the the r7500 v2 for a week now. Researching deep into its issue’s on online forums and you I have found that it drops connected devices on 2.4GHZ . And what do you know it’s true! I upgraded to the latest firmware when I got it. It was fine after a few days then today all my devices that were on 2.4GHZ dropped. I searched for the SSID on the network and it was non existent. Thank God I have not returned my r7000 yet.I will be returning the r7500 v2 and keeping the r7000. Keep in mind I researched the r7000 is a more matured router with no issues like I found in reviews for the r7500. It is said the r7000 is a far more stable router and honestly the specs of the r7500 is not needed for I would say 98 percent consumers. I can vouch for the r7000 (AC1900) is a solid router.

    NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S – AC2600I purchase the R7800 to replace a R6300v2 dual band wireless router that had become, at best, unstable!I did not research when I purchased the R6300v2 and was not going to blind buy again.I did a lot of research and looking and arrived at the Netgear R7800.My goal was to have dual band internet that I did not have to constantly reboot and reset my wireless router and also to have enough oomph, to get signal to my garage 500 ft away on the 2.4 band.Router manufactures are always kind of coy, on how well their wireless devices will function, and never really guarantee anything clearly on range but, on this one I took a chance, hoping there was enough oomph, in the R7800 to go the 500ft.My plan was to set up the R7800, then go to my garage and “extend” the 2.4 with an older Amped sr10000.And the Quick Start seup is easy, even for me in 20 minutes I was done and the R7000 was pumping away.The Amped sr10000 set up requested at least a 70% signal to be the low end of signal to be extended.The Netgear R7800 was delivering 68% signal.I set it up anyway, and it works like a champ!I have fiber to the home and our internet speeds are 100Mbps both download and upload.We are getting full house coverage on both bands and 100 Mbps in all areas of the house and, the extender in the garage is at 10Mbps both download and upload at 2.4.To get to the garage, I am going through 3 Standard home construction walls, and have my Amped sr10000 located in a window of a steel sided garage!I almost feel Naughty having this all work as planned!And Later today………………………….I am updating this review in regards to extending signal to my Garage, just over 500 ft. I have now set up a Belkin N600 dual band range extender, that gets mixed reviews, in the garage and my 5g Download is at 30Mbps and upload at 12Mbps (a bit of an improvement over the 2.4 with the sr10000!) I will continue to report on this as there may be a few out there that are not only interested in full house coverage, but also in low cost ways to extend to other buildings.NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S – AC2600 4×4 MU-MIMO Smart WiFi Gigabit Gaming Router (R7800-100NAS)

    there’s a lot of confusion out there with the r6700 as netgear has done three different variants of it. so as of writing, here are the specs of the three versions:r6700v1:chipset: broadcomcpu: bcm4709a0 – 1ghz dual core – arm cortex-a9wifi adapter #1: bcm4360 – an+acwifi adapter #2: bcm4360 – bgnethernet: bcm4709a0switch: bcm4709a0 – 10/100/1000flash storage: 128mb – samsung k9f1g08u0dmemory: 256mb – samsung k4b2g1646e-bck0manufacter: chinar6700v2:chipset: mediatekcpu: mt7621at – 880mhz dual core – mips basedwifi adapter #1: mt7615n – an+acwifi adapter #2: mt7615n – bgnethernet: mt7621atswitch: mt7621at – 10/100/1000flash storage: 128mb – macronix mx30uf1g18ac-timemory: 256mb – nanya nt5cc128m16ip-dimanufacter: chinar6700v3:chipset: broadcomcpu: bcm4708c0 – 1ghz dual core – arm cortex-a9wifi adapter #1: bcm4360 – an+acwifi adapter #2: bcm4331 – bgnethernet: bcm4708c0switch: bcm4708c0 – 10/100/1000flash storage: 128mb – spansion s34ml01g200tfi00memory: 256mb – samsung k4b2g1646f-bck0manufacter: Vietnamr6700v2 was a step down in performance. mediatek mips based 880mhz was not only slower than the arm cortex-a9 based 1ghz processor by frequency terms, but also by clock for clock single threaded performance as well. the broadcom chipset is also more stable and feature rich than mediatek’s. luckily in the same year as the release of the v2, netgear released v3 which brought back the broadcom chipset and arm based processor. but there are still a lot of v2 units still out there on store shelves. I purchased mine back in sept. 18′ and received a version 3 but there is still a chance of getting v2. if you walk into a brick and motor store the easiest way to tell is that the v2 box just lists “dual core” while v1 and v3 lists “1ghz dual core.”overall I love my v3 r6700. been rock solid stable. has all the features you want without the bloat. interface is simple to use. also supports dd-wrt which v2 does not.
