What customers say about "Network"
NETGEAR D6220-100UKS Dual Band Gigabit Modem Router
  • The 5.0Ghz range is much better and the download speeds on both frequencies showed a worthwhile gain.
  • Highly recommended and much better WiFi range too.
  • Range is very good - probably 50% better than I had before.
  • The 5 GHz wireless signal range is poor.
  • Range of 5GHz (802.11ac) is not brilliant.
TP-LINK Archer C1200 Gigabit Wireless Wi-Fi Router
  • Solid router that just plain works. Range is amazing.
  • The range is good and provides good signal strength throughout our house.
  • The range is pretty good compared to what I had before.
  • The range on the 5GHz signal is fantastic, going out of my house and still having a strong connection 50 feet away from the house.
  • This is a very finicky router, range is so so - not great.

What customers say about "Security"
NETGEAR D6220-100UKS Dual Band Gigabit Modem Router
  • It's as secure as you want it to be.
  • The router has something called Dynamic QoS which is supposed to prioritise data traffic. Good secure.
  • There's a pretty nice dynamic QoS feature which can help prioritise bandwidth for things like streaming and gaming.
  • Built In QoS works very well, and makes our slow broadband speed bearable!
  • Fantastic - QoS is a godsend and brilliant range. Great secure.
TP-LINK Archer C1200 Gigabit Wireless Wi-Fi Router
  • Makes it easy to set security and control which devices have access to the network.
  • Very fair price, perfect for 99% of the population. Has all the security you need.
  • It is a good product. I like the security features on it.
  • Bought this to boost WiFi for security works great.
  • It works good for wireless access, but it is missing vital security features.
