What customers say about "Network"
NETGEAR Nighthawk (D7800-100UKS) AC2600 Dual Band 11 AC
  • Built In QoS works very well, and makes our slow broadband speed bearable!
  • The wireless signal, speed and range is good. Decent router for that price.
  • Top class signal strength and speed. Allows me to watch streaming video in rooms that previously had no reception at all.
  • Disappointed with the range as I have found that it does not reach as far as my home hub did and my son had to move his PS4 closer to the router to get it to connect.
  • Not really worth the high price and the range seems no better than a cheaper devices without the techie looking antennae.
NETGEAR Nighthawk (R7800) Smart WiFi Dual Band Gigabit Gaming Router
  • Excellent coverage with no drop-outs and high-speed switching.
  • So this is a great router. Quick, great wifi coverage and speeds.
  • Range in my old house with rather solid walls is excellent, ease of setting up guest networks and managing resources makes it very versatile.
  • Range covers the whole house and garden and bandwidth to my Alienware laptop (Killer wireless) is almost as good as the wired connection to the desktop.
  • The range is surprisingly much lower than I expected.

What customers say about "Security"
NETGEAR Nighthawk (D7800-100UKS) AC2600 Dual Band 11 AC
  • Feature wise it looks good with best in class performance, parental controls and the ability to communicate with 4 devices at once.
  • There are many good features, including air print, NAS storage, USB storage, parental controls, guest networks, I fact the list goes on.
  • Good security settings, speed and range are decent too!
  • I would say that the parental controls are not as granular as I'd like though..
  • The only downside I am currently experiencing is getting the VPN service to work.
NETGEAR Nighthawk (R7800) Smart WiFi Dual Band Gigabit Gaming Router
  • Very happy customer and at long last a router that does not require any compromise between speed, security and ease of management.
  • Do not trust all the reviews that forget to check how long the lists of bug fixes are and how well security is implemented.
  • I liked this router for its security settings. Set parental controls with OpenDNS is really easy.
  • There are routers that are more secure, more stable and cheaper you could buy.
  • The Parental controls are simply OpenDNS settings that you can do yourself for free at anytime on any router (almost).
