The router works great, it’s fast and has a great range. The only short coming is the configuration software. It prompts you to download their genie software which helps you get through the first part of the setup. But it will only allow you too configure the 2.4ghz radio. To configure the 5ghz radio you have to use the web interface…which you could also use to configure the 2.4ghz radio…so the software is pretty much useless bloat. If Netgear got rid of the download and just directed you straight to the web interface I’d give this thing 5 stars.

I couldn’t be more pleased. I replaced a Cisco N4200 Router that was about 6 years old. I always just assumed that my slow internet speeds were due to my ISP. Prior to this upgrade, I was getting speeds between 5 to 20 mbs, I was continually having my cell phones drop off the wifi and long buffering while streaming TV. Now with the Netgear AC2600, my internet speed are coming in between 90 to 120 mps. I have not had any dropped WIFI from my phones and virtually no buffering on my TV’s. As a test, I tried to load it up. I was streaming 2 Fire Stick TV’s with HD movies, 2 cell phones and 1 Ipad with youtube HD videos at the some time. It handled it perfectly. I was truly amazed. Set up was a breeze. I am not a networking guru, I just used all the basic features of the Netgear Genie, and was up and running in about 10 minutes. I should have upgraded a long time ago!

NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S – AC2600 I 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.

Fairly easy setup. If you are buying this, ETHER NET CABLE IS INCLUDED. The product description does not show it is.
