Notice, this router does NOT have modem built in, so it cannot replace your super hub, but you could put your super hub in modem mode and connect it to this router to get a big LAN improvement

WTF is a super hub? Jeese. I thought a router to play Rust on was all I needed. Calm down Lahn mate.

Also be aware there is an (as yet) unpatched security hole.

Great Router, but make sure you update the firmware as soon as possible.

Netgear released a statement a couple of days ago about this one in particular saying it's security was compromised.

Just google: Netgear R7000

or update with custom firmware like xwrt

Will this allow me to track internet activity at home? Like sites visited etc?

I don't own this device, but from a bit of googling, I think the Netgear firmware only can tell you how much data each device has used - however if you install dd-wrt on it, you can install extra tools, and it looks like this will do the job perfectly

Thanks very much! I'll have a read now

I never knew this type of thing could be done until recently

To reiterate what terry_burns85 said, anyone buying this must update the firmware immediately.

There is a beta firmware - http://kb.netgear.com/000036386/CVE-2016-582384 - but not yet an official release to fix a huge security flaw.

A Netgear rep with the username chris_salazar is on reddit giving regular updates on the update. 15 hours ago he said: "We posted the beta firmware last night and will have another update today."

Google Translate of that page says "This item can not enter the United Kingdom". Is there a way to get it shipped here?

You don't even have to use google translate, it's now possible to change Amazon.de to English.
looks like this deal is dead now, that message was not there earlier :(

Any idea if there is a patch for the r7500?
#13
does this router support link aggregation?
#14
I have sky hub 2 (standard broadband) will i be able to use this?
#15
no built in modem? for this price surely it should have it included.
#16
So stuff like this will it only improve wifi? Not cable connections? I find the super hub 2ac awful an cannot port forward enough ports but when I read up on these it seems they're more improve wifi range/signal for gaming ect than wired connections

You can put your Superhub into "Modem mode" which disables most of its features and the Netgear will take over DHCP, port forwarding etc.

This wont replace it but you can turn the sky hub into modem mode in the settings, switch off the WiFi on it and use this as the main router. This is what I've done at home with a different router, works perfectly. You can keep them side by side or just invest £20-30 in some powerline Ethernet adapters and put this router at a more convenient spot.

By using powerline adaptors to move the router you will take a massive hit on performance as even the fastest ones cant do anywhere near the speed they advertise if you use gigabit adaptors you wont get gigabit performace so the ethernet ports will be a lot slower than they should be eventhough Windows will report a gigabit connection. The only reason that would be a idea is if you were only concerned with wifi your best option is always to hardwire if possible. All my network is hardwired and i can make the best of my 200mbps Virgin service and i have a AC1900 router for the wifi only products like the ipad and unless you have .AC cards then you might aswell get a much cheaper .N router. A .AC1900 wifi card is not a cheap item and im willing to bet that 90% of people that own these routers at best have AC750 cards that includes myself my Missis wouldnt know the difference and i know im a little selfish but as long as the kids and the missis can get online i couldnt gave a flying ***** at what speed they are getting im only concerned with what my wired rigs are getting.

I hope the Missis doesnt see this or ill be cooking my own Tea.

Was looking at this, it is a good price but think i'd get an all in one, which is more cost effective. Reading the reviews - they're very polarised.

Most wireless handheld devices wouldn't feel any snappier by having faster (.ac) wifi anyway, so really doesn't matter ;)

I think noiren was mainly saying to use the powerline adaptors to just pass through the internet connection, so even 100Mbps would likely be quick enough for most users.

Most homes have a specif place where you need to place your ISPs modem/router, typically where your phone line is located, however this can at a bad spot why doesn't cover the whole house or has too many walls to traverse. Also the router they provide you with tend to be absolute garbage, as they're usually free, however you still need it to connect to the internet, so by switching it into modem mode, turning it's WiFi chips off, you can then connect it to more capable router that wont fall over every hour and meet your/family's needs.
Using a powerline adaptor allow you to place the more capable router at better spot in the house and connect it to the modem/internet router without running a long Ethernet cable across the house.
Most people internet connection rarely exceeds the 100MB/s limit, if at all, so there wont be an issue but also the cheapest powerline adapters these do about 500MB/s so a non issue.

You can put your Superhub into "Modem mode" which disables most of its features and the Netgear will take over DHCP, port forwarding etc.


I see, an would this one be the best to get? My budget is £150 an can this go on the wall? As it looks like it'd take a lot of space sitting on a desk the vm I already taking up a massive part purely cause cables aren't long enough an are stiff so can't flex well an pushes it out.

It's definitely one of the best, especially for the price (£100-120), and according to this review it's wall mountable indeed :)

For those wanting to replace their Sky hub with this. You will need to get your user name and password from the router. Is a couple of years since I had sky broadband but they don't give out that info. You can Google how's to get the software that will help you. If you don't have your broadband username and password you can't use this router with your sky hub. I did with my r7500 and the WiFi was massively improved. For BT customers it may be best to look elsewhere as BT TV is only possible with certain routers and certainty my r7500 was not one of these. Someone on here might know the exact requirements... Multi something or other is required.

The built in modem version is the D7000 which is a good piece of kit.
