Just got my router today, WiFi signal is stronger than the ASUS I had so happy
Have you guys got the latest firmware update? I have installed 3 of these for friends and family and have zero issues. Strong wifi across all bands and super stable. This is for the router only version.
I had the N 7000. It was ok but it broke and the price of sending it back to the states to be repaired 'under warranty' essentially means that you are only getting amazon's 6 month warranty. Won't be getting another netgear.
If this is anything like the modem-less R7000, then I'd give it an enthusiastic miss. I managed to get an R7000 2 years ago for £60 which seemed like a great deal at the time. The signal output on both 2.4ghz and 5ghz is worse than a free low end ISP router. I consistently get far better signal strength when going through an ISP provided router when they're placed in the exact same location (and the other is off to ensure it's a fair test). The router does have some good features, like the software, guest network, network wide VPN, but this can be flashed onto many other routers with OpenWRT or DD-WRT. Add on the fact that some of the exploits found in the default firmware have been hilariously simple, it's clear that this is a poor quality router.
