WiFi range ain't great.
Biggest POS router I ever had, stay away from this terrible piece of hardware and even worse company that thinks its OK to charge monthly fee for providing their customers with basic support.
Mine went faulty after 360 days. Amazon refunded me full amount as I was still within a year warranty. Not the best router

Did you find something with decent WiFi range? I'm curious as I need about 13 metres of coverage
Had mine 2 months and no issues. Working great with Plusnet fibre.

Put LEDE on the R7800. Makes a world of difference.

Get another one and use their mesh feature like with the Orbi’s and BT’s Whole Home WiFi etc.
Lot of discussion on previous post for this here

Range is better than most routers currently on the market (with latest firmware).

Rock solid router. Great range and speed. On stock firmware, out of the box it's shockingly bad, but that's totally redundant. Their support will depend on the question asked. They were quite happy to email me pre-release/beta firmware without charge. When you consider the kind of idiotic questions people ask, it's understandable they don't want to deal with it. If people want that kind of hold your hand technical support they should expect to pay for it IMO.
Range is better. Just make sure to disable HT160 from Wireless settings. Non of the current WiFi products use HT160 and if you enabled that, range will take a hit. I'm using stock firmware. Received so many security and bug fix firmware from Netgear.

Are you joking? You think support should depend on whether you consider the question 'stupid' or not? I'm guessing you don't actually work with customers a lot, clearly you have issues with social interaction.

No, don't be silly. By stupid, I mean unreasonable. I do work in a tech industry and will answer support questions that are totally out of scope, but it's not practical. Netgear have been fine for me anytime I have a legitimate support query. If you buy this and don't understand it, need help setting it up etc.. You should expect to pay for that type of service.

I think you missed the part of my first message that said they limit support to 1 year, even though I disagree with your 'only answer legit questions to customers who paid for a product' do you not see how ridiculous it is to cap basic support to a subscription? Have a bug with your router in 13 months, nope can't talk to netgear unless you pay.

That being the case I would be more inclined to agree with you, but it hasn't been my experience. I don't know what type of support they want you to pay for, all I know is every question or bug I've reported has been replied to.
