One of the best budget friendly routers.
Got this on Black Friday 2018 for $99 and it was worth every penny. I was in the market for a high end Wireless-N router but seen several reviews for the Nighthawk; combo that with the price and there ya have it. Pros: - Easy to set up. Practically a plug and play router. Get the App, download a few updates and your off and running. - Control all Devices from almost any Device using the App. Simple interface and can run speed test directly from the application. - 802.11ac Dual Band Gigabit with 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi options. I use the 5GHz for work at home. - Broad range and can cover most homes without the need of a mesh network. I used to have TP-LINK Repeater to extend my Modem's WiFi signal but it's hard to extend an already poor signal. The Nighthawk handles this flawless with little to no drop zones. Cons: - It's advertised to sustain speeds up to 800MBPs but this varies and not based on distance from the hardware itself. I assume the closer I was to the router the faster and most static my speed would be, but that is false. You probably won't notice the difference but thought I'd point it out anyways. - The Web interface is bloated and confusing giving you many many options that the average person wouldn't even use or understand. Stick to the App for ease of use. Overall the best budget friendly high speed router on the market. I'd definitely recommend this to a friend.
Top Negative Review
Numerous times the wifi signal dropped. I thought it was the tv service at first. While resetting the router, I had to sign in to change passwords. I noticed that the address bar says the site is not secure. Why would you want to pay $200 to sign into the router to change your passwords when the site is not secure? The internet has a posting dated in 2017 about this and it still has not been fixed by Netgear. Why hasn't Netgear created a secure way to view the settings to allow a secure way to change the router and wifi passwords? It is supposed to fast, however but care more about security.

great router, high speeds and range

I am happy with my Nighthawk so far. It is delivering much higher speeds to my devices and the range has increased farther than my old router. I can now receive fast wifi on the other side of my home. Everything I have streamed has been fast and hasnt stopped to buffer. I also like the look and design of the router. I'd recommend this router to anyone looking to upgrade from the basic router and anyone who streams movies or games a lot.

perfect add on router

Works perfectly. The only cons of this router are people who don't know how to research products, and for the one reviewer who said that connection wasn't secure when setting up the router doesn't know that it wasn't netgear's fault it's the firewall

Greatness

I was using an Arris all-in-one and was not getting close to my max download speed on Wifi from my ISP. Called Arris and they said I was getting acceptable speeds considering I lived in an apartment building. However, I literally was getting less than half my speed even though I was a foot away from the modem/router. They refused to do any warranty service. I told them I would get the same all-in-one and do a test and share the results to get warranty service. I ended up getting the Nighthawk as a secondary test. As it turns out, my Arris unit was fine but the wifi sucked. The Nighthawk on the other hand was awesome. I was getting consistent full download speeds via wifi on all my devices. I wish I got it sooner.

Netgear Nighthawk AC2600

Netgear R7450 is a great find. I have used other routers and this one has excellent coverage in a 2100 sq ft 2 floor house. Also, the first one that gives me the actual (exceed) speed that my cable provider advertise. The easy setup allow you to use a phone app or traditional browser and turns on wpa2 by default. I really like this little router and would suggest it.

Great Speed, Connectivity, and Performance!

Much Faster Speed and Greater Connectivity! The Nighthawk Ac2600 (R7450) is a very affordable smart Wi-Fi router providing very fast speed (up to 2600Mbps), stable connectivity, and a very good distance range. Right now it provides excellent coverage in a 12,000 square feet building plus 50 feet outside. The set up is very easy if one uses the nighthawk app. Just connect the router to the modem, turn it on and wait for led lights to turn green, and then connect to the NetGear Nighthawk networks on your phone Wi-Fi settings. Launch the app and follow the instructions to connect to the internet. The password is provided on the router's label. Next, enter the settings in the app for more preferences. On our 60Mbps Charter internet service we reach the maximum speeds on our laptops and smart phones, on both 2.4 and 5.0Ghz bands. The modem we replaced with the Nighthawk AC2600 was an Asus Rt AC 68U which did not have the MU-MIMO technology so we had to reboot it quite often for connectivity, but with the Nighthawk AC2600 with haven't had any problem getting a fast and stable connection to over 35 devices. The performance of this affordable smart Wi-Fi router has been very reliable, in particular for HD video streaming. This router has some other great features including beamforming, google assistant compatibility, ready share usb port for printer or hard drive, very intuitive web interface, and ready cloud access to your usb storage. Another great feature is the possibility of setting up a separate guest network with a separate access password. The NetGear routers have been among the best in providing double firewall protection and denial of service for attack prevention. If you want a very affordable yet fast and reliable smart Wi-Fi router offering the latest technologies get the Nighthawk AC2600 Router (R7450). This router met our expectations and we strongly recommend it to friends and family. (Paul Botica for the NetGear Review and Test).

Good reliable router with excellent performance.

I was impressed with the simplicity of the set up process. I was thrilled by the reach of the routers signal. I have a 3200sqft house and I get signal throughout the house. The 5G signal is expectedly weaker but not much.

Great Home Router

The product is great, I highly recommend it for a normal user. Now if you are a pro users, the interface might not be up to it. The router OS has a lot of options and for the most parts it cover most use cases, it even has file hosting, file downloading, OpenVPN, etc. The setup is super easy and it comes with android and iOS apps that would make it even more simple for non-pro users. The performance of the router is great, but with that said, on a big apartment, after a few walls, speed is reduced, but all single node routers are, this one actually does a decent job and things work ok even on the corners of my house ( my Asus RT68 did not ). The price is fair given the amount of features and performance.
Numerous times the wifi signal dropped. I thought it was the tv service at first. While resetting the router, I had to sign in to change passwords.

Why hasn't Netgear created a secure way to view the settings to allow a secure way to change the router and wifi passwords? It is supposed to fast, however but care more about security.

Do not trust

Never worked properly. When I called for support they tried to convince me my network was corrupt and they could fix it for about $200. Decided to give the old router a try and it worked fine. I was told by my existing cable company that this was not uncommon for them to try some shady stuff and he verified there was nothing wrong with my internet. Will never by anything Netgear again!
