NETGEAR Nighthawk (R7000) AC1900 Wireless Speed (up to 1900 Mbps)
  • The Netgear does the job I bought it for and I am happy with the speeds I get when multiple devices are connected.
  • Bought to replace a Netgear D6200, the setup was a breeze, and I'm seeing considerably faster speeds on both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, as well as longer range.
  • Wireless speeds are impressive and gaming on my PS4/PC is lag free and no NAT issues either.
  • I managed to stream a Youtube video seamlessly at the end of the garden and on my wireless AC-enabled tablet I get aspeedtest download speed of over 60Mbps!
  • Outstanding speed, i am impressed!

What customers say about "Network"
NETGEAR Nighthawk (R7000) AC1900 Wireless Speed (up to 1900 Mbps)
  • Great router - very robust with superb wireless coverage.
  • The Nighthawk is extremely well made and is providing very good wireless coverage!
  • The QoS system manages perfectly in between where streaming sites or video viewing sites are used.
  • Easy to set up, fast, great range and looks like something the US millitary have been hiding at Area 51.
  • The range of the router is okay (but definitely not great). Is it worth the money? Not really.
NETGEAR Nighthawk (R7000P) AC2300 Smart Wi-Fi Router
  • The range of the wifi has been improved along with the speeds to my wifi devices around my house. Now I can see uhd content on my qled.
  • The unit has excellent range, reaching my workshop at the end of my garden (approx 120ft) quite happily.
  • The wireless range/coverage on both channels is mind-blowing, no need for Wi-Fi extenders in our house anymore.
  • Good range and good configuation facilities. All-in-all, I was very pleased.
  • Wireless range/performance could be better i think, good but not brilliant.

What customers say about "Security"
NETGEAR Nighthawk (R7000) AC1900 Wireless Speed (up to 1900 Mbps)
  • Placement of router is key! The extra features are great too, qos, parental control all work really well.
  • There are a few nice features, such as QoS, the parental controls and the USB port for device sharing. Works well!
  • Easy set up; excellent parental controls, recommended!
  • The only real downside so far is that live parental controls are a bit clunky in use.
  • I bought Netgear R7000 solely for the parental control features. Unfortunetly these features are easily disabled by pressing the reset button at the back of the router, no password is required.
NETGEAR Nighthawk (R7000P) AC2300 Smart Wi-Fi Router
  • I like the "Access Control" feature so that you have to permit a device to connect to your wi-fi.
  • Lots of options for access control. Good for me!
  • Perfect product worth the money and would recommend for anyone wanting a more secure WAP.
  • The security options are easily configurable, with separate settings for 2.4Hz and 5GHz, and for main and guest networks on each.
  • Decent quality, good design and nice security performance!
