    Amplía el rango del internet en la casa y mejora su velocidad (antes mi conexión era más rápida en la sala que en mi recámara, ahora es igual).

    Antes de instalar el router no podía, por ejemplo, ver clips en youtube, descargar/subir archivos y navegar al mismo tiempo. Ahora sí puedo, sin haber tenido que contratar un internet más caro con el proveedor. También ayuda a que varios aparatos estén conectados al mismo tiempo sin que le baje la velocidad a ninguno.

    La instalación no fue tan fácil como dice la guía, pero nada que no pudiera resolver con google y prendiendo/apagando el módem y el router.

    Una vez instalado, todo funciona de maravilla. Yo buscaba mejorar mi velocidad de internet y eso logré.

    When I moved in with my wife, she brought with her a router that was better than mine, so we kept hers. After a while, more and more of our house became smarter. Smart devices were chatting across our house more and more every month. So I decided to upgrade to a 

    TP-Link Router

    . I grew to regret that mistake every day over the course of a month.

    Over the course of the next month, the smart devices grew angry. They couldn’t chat freely and with reckless abandon. Sometimes they wouldn’t ever hear each other. The Chromecast cried in solace. The smart lightbulbs faded to dark. Our guests grew angry with our unreliable network as Game of Thrones struggled to stream. We lost friends. Made enemies. At a certain point we decided enough is enough: it is time to throw more money at this problem.

    That’s how we ended up with this spaceship. I spent twenty minutes going through all the advanced settings to make sure it was set up well enough to satisfy my inner geek, then I unleashed it upon the internet. Game of Thrones streamed quickly. Netflix couldn’t feed my router fast enough. My smart devices snapped to attention. The Chromecast wept, this time with tears of joy.

    I am a hero. And all it took was a lot of money.

    The WIFI for this unit is completely unusable. Constantly dropping and resetting itself. Forces you to accept terms and conditions to use, which I hate, and auto updates buggy firmware constantly. Look at the support forums and there are no techs helping distraught customers, and the only advice given by the community is to throw it out a window. I’m not kidding. Don’t buy this router. Especially for gaming. I just want a good consumer wireless router why is this so hard.

    In all honesty, this is certainly a capable router and will be a good fit for many. It will provide fantastic speeds and will be a nice upgrade for older routers not capable of keeping up with the increasing internet speeds provided today by most ISPs.

    Unfortunately, Netgear decided to dramatically change the internal components and then still sell it under the same name (R6700). With that said, Amazon has a little product alert indicating either R6700 or R6700v2. Well, they are shipping the R6700v2 which does not match some of the specifications shown on this page (in particular the CPU speed).

    I know because after receiving a router that did not match, they offered to replace it and send the first version of the router (the one with the higher clock speeds as indicated on the actual product details) and ended up receiving the same thing (another V2).

    I will say that for those interested in a router that will not be flashed with custom software or that will not use other more advanced functions a router can provide, this is no problem. For those of us that know the hardware and know what we are expecting, that is a problem.

    I have it a 3 star because any company that makes an original version with better specs and then turns around and significantly changes this without changing the model number and making minor modifications on the box (see amazon’s own photos – both boxes are pictured) simply does not deserve my trust. Speaking of ratings, many of the ratings you see here are lumped up with other Netgear products and also apply to the original more capable version.

    I encourage you do your research and check reviews from different sources. This way, you will not be disappointed with the V2 that you will receive. I hope this help you make your decision!

    Es un buen router de categoría intermedia. Desempeña excelente todas sus funciones, buen alcance y buena velocidad (400mbps en promedio por Wifi). Doble banda 2.4 y 5 Ghz. Ademas soporta una buena cantidad de dispositivos conectactos vía inalambrica. Puede exprimir la velocidad de las conexiones de fibra (menores a 400mbps).

    Ademas ofrece la capacidad de instalar el firmware DDRT, este firmware ofrece capacidad de personalización extrema. (También es muy fácil regresar al Firmware de fabrica).

    El único punto en contra es que al configurar un cliente VPN por openvpn la máxima velocidad alcanzada es de 45mbps. Esto se debe a que el proceso de cifrado lo hace el procesador del router y no le alcanza para poder realizar el proceso mas rápido, degradando la velocidad. En mi caso con una velocidad de 200mbps solo podía obtener 45mbps.

    En resumen: Un excelente router para usuarios normales. Un buen router para usuarios avanzados. No lo recomiendo como un RouterVPN.

    Funciona: Bien
    Alcance: Normal, un poco mejor que el router del proveedor de internet.
    Configuración: Desde la web o la app de nighthawk.
    Tamaño: No es pequeño, pero tampoco muy grande.
    Uso: Lo utilice para instalar una VPN y funciona bien.
    Tiempo de entrega: Bueno

    Siento que funciona mejor que el router del proveedor de internet y es mas estable. Lo tengo en la sala y llega el internet a toda la casa (casa de dos habitaciones). La señal llega al jardin sin problemas.

    there’s a lot of confusion out there with the r6700 as netgear has done three different variants of it. so as of writing, here are the specs of the three versions:

    chipset: broadcom
    cpu: bcm4709a0 – 1ghz dual core – arm cortex-a9
    wifi adapter #1: bcm4360 – an+ac
    wifi adapter #2: bcm4360 – bgn
    ethernet: bcm4709a0
    switch: bcm4709a0 – 10/100/1000
    flash storage: 128mb – samsung k9f1g08u0d
    memory: 256mb – samsung k4b2g1646e-bck0
    manufacter: china

    chipset: mediatek
    cpu: mt7621at – 880mhz dual core – mips based
    wifi adapter #1: mt7615n – an+ac
    wifi adapter #2: mt7615n – bgn
    ethernet: mt7621at
    switch: mt7621at – 10/100/1000
    flash storage: 128mb – macronix mx30uf1g18ac-ti
    memory: 256mb – nanya nt5cc128m16ip-di
    manufacter: china

    chipset: broadcom
    cpu: bcm4708c0 – 1ghz dual core – arm cortex-a9
    wifi adapter #1: bcm4360 – an+ac
    wifi adapter #2: bcm4331 – bgn
    ethernet: bcm4708c0
    switch: bcm4708c0 – 10/100/1000
    flash storage: 128mb – spansion s34ml01g200tfi00
    memory: 256mb – samsung k4b2g1646f-bck0
    manufacter: Vietnam

    r6700v2 was a step down in performance. mediatek mips based 880mhz was not only slower than the arm cortex-a9 based 1ghz processor by frequency terms, but also by clock for clock single threaded performance as well. the broadcom chipset is also more stable and feature rich than mediatek’s. luckily in the same year as the release of the v2, netgear released v3 which brought back the broadcom chipset and arm based processor. but there are still a lot of v2 units still out there on store shelves. I purchased mine back in sept. 18′ and received a version 3 but there is still a chance of getting v2. if you walk into a brick and motor store the easiest way to tell is that the v2 box just lists “dual core” while v1 and v3 lists “1ghz dual core.”

    overall I love my v3 r6700. been rock solid stable. has all the features you want without the bloat. interface is simple to use. also supports dd-wrt which v2 does not.

    Every single day, this router drops the connection on every device connected to it, and requires a power restart in order to start working again. I’ve tried changing the firmware, I’ve tried factory resetting, this thing refuses to stay connected on its own. Absolute trash router, don’t buy it.

    Update: I’ve owned this thing for two years now and it actually just bricked itself upon auto-updating to the newest firmware. Not even the company itself can support this thing. Incredible.
