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.

Muy bueno. Excelente rango. Sin problemas con la señal de 5ghz como pasa con otros routers. Buenas opciones de configuración; como el apagar la señal de WiFi por horarios definidos por el usuario o acceder remotamente al router y a los archivos compartidos en el disco duro conectado.

I was having some frustrating wifi speed problems after upgrading my service and it turns out that my wifi router is 7 years old. Yikes! I swear I bought it yesterday! Where the heck does time go?? I decided to also go with an upgrade to my router now that I’m making much more money than back then when I dropped $19.99 on the one I had. The difference since installing the NETGEAR AC1200 is like night and day.
Not only is my signal now reaching out to my apartment parking lot with relatively good strength, but the my upload and download speeds are out of this world compared to before. I’m a FPS gamer, so lag was frustrating but now my load time is faster than some of my teammates. Speaking to the use, I recently bought 3 Alexa devices that control my home security system, entertainment systems (FireTV, Xbox One, Samsung HDTVs, etc.), as well as my house lighting. I think that so many wifi enabled devices on my old wifi router (which was built before so many wifi enabled devices were on the market) that it was struggling to keep up. The NETGEAR AC1200 has absolutely no problems with how many devices are on the network and the NETGEAR network management tool also really helps me monitor the devices that are attached to my network. It’s really helpful!
If you are looking for a powerful router for your home, I would totally recommend this!

This router is TOTAL SPYWARE. Netgear DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO USE THE ROUTER YOU BOUGHT unless you “register” with them. Undoubtedly this router will SPY ON YOU and send back usage statistics and possibly personal information about your internet usage to Netgear. The fact that this company DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO USE THE ROUTER YOU JUST BOUGHT is more than enough reason for me NEVER to buy another Netgear product. This is NOT an iPhone. Its NOT a subscription. It’s a TOASTER. Toasters should MAKE TOAST and NOT demand that you register or else they cripple the device. Utterly and completely unethical. WIll NEVER buy another Netgear product for life.

Product was good till the 90 day warranty ended. Around Nov I bought this and everything was good. However, started having issues with wifi dropping and eventually the lan ports would not function right. I call support and they tell me my hardware is perfectly fine and it’s a software issue in the router. They can fix the problem, but my warranty is expired. So they wanted to charge me $200 to edit the configs! I can do everything they can from the user control panel, but their tech kept hard selling, saying it was their proprietary software so only they had rights to it, etc.
Needless to say, I just ordered a ASUS AC2900. Screw Netgear and their predatory practice. Their product failed, why should I pay them to correct their problem? Disgusting.

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

I will qualify this by saying that I was an Electronics Technician in the US Navy. I already troubleshot the mess out of this router – rebooted, unplugged, reset to default, yada yada. The WIFI gives me about 1 Mbs! but, direct hardwire cable connection works fine. I asked for a replacement, but I won’t get it because Netgear needs to have their techs do a phone tech support first – and that just ran out at 90 days. So, I was asked to pay for phone support, which is $89.99 for 6 months and $139.99 for a year. Please, if anyone reads these reviews, I will change my review to a positive if you replace my router without a hassle. Thank you kindly.
Update 4/20/2019Netgear can bite me. Way to weasel out of your warranty, I won’t ever be bothered to even check the deals on any of their products. I will recommend their competitor’s product instead of theirs:
is only $39.99 and has MU-MIMO, with a 2-year warranty and 2-year tech support.
