Pure satisfaction Amazon Customer June 11, 2015
I purchased this router about 2 weeks ago and I have to say I'm glad I spent the money on it. I was in the market for a router even though my 3yr old WNDR4500 router was working just fine, I felt as though I wasn't getting the right prioritization for gaming consoles vs tablets and virtually everything else, once I setup this bad boy I realized that was the case. First off even though my list is short I'll name them off.
3 iPad mini
1 iPad Air 2
2 iPhone 6
1 Xbox one
1 AppleTV
1 Roku stream stick
1 Desktop computer
So being that I played my Xbox while my kids and wife are streaming videos and surfing the web I used to get some pretty bad lag to the point I banned YouTube "bandwidth hogs" during my Xbox playing time. I now am able to play my Xbox with little to no lag whilst my wife and kids use the Internet however they please. I should note that my internet connection speed is 15mb/s which is around the lowest tier offered by TWC in my area.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone interested in a decently priced router is the best user interface settings and style.

P.S. Stay clear of the app for netgears router it's about the only things I'd complain about. Horrible ugly and useless app .

Recommended. J. Maxeyon June 9, 2015
I've waited a long time to upgrade my router. My previous model was a Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H flashed with DD-WRT that served me well since August of 2012.

This model beats the pants off of the Buffalo in terms of range. I used to struggle with reliable reception in the outer edges of my ~850sf apartment, now I have no such difficulty.

The R7000 is fast, reliable, and includes most features you'd want in a router.
The only thing that's missing is an easy domain blocking feature. The one Netgear included is cumbersome in that you can only add a single domain at a time rather than a whole list (or at least more than one).
The built-in DDNS is excellent, and the included hostname is a nice perk.

Range and speed are excellent. Configuration is pretty straightforward.


Amazing router I can keep connected to WiFi while mowing ... Trevor Howeryon November 5, 2014
Amazing router I can keep connected to WiFi while mowing my entire half an acre yard. My neighbors even connect better to my Wifi than to there own router. In the house I lose no speed from wired to wireless network. Highly recommended!

Very Bad Service from Netgear M. Wen "Helpful Advise" May 31, 2015
The router worked okay for about 8 months. The wifi signal was better than without it. 3 days ago we had a power outage for a couple of hours. When the power came back, the router couldn't pick up any wifi signal. The modem Arris TG1672 provided by TWC still works. But the wifi speed is not good at all from the modem even though we have 300 Mbps service. I called Netgear for tech support. The phone was answered by someone in India with very strong accent in a distant and faint voice. I was told my router is still in one-year warranty. But my tech support is 90 days which expired already. In order to get help from them, I was told to buy the tech support service first. I refused to buy such a service. Then he told me he could give me a "good deal" which I pay if he fixes the problem, and I don't pay if he can't fix the problem. I told him I'd rather return the router to the manufacturer since it's still in the warranty

Three Stars Jose Luiz B. Caodaglio "Jose Caodaglio" June 6, 2015
