I was using my internet provider's router and my daughter would always complain to me she would get disconnected during her online gaming with her PS4. My whole house runs off internet so I decided to dish out the cash and buy this router. I asked my daughter if she was still getting disconnected and she told me no. She also said the lag stopped. I have a total of about 15 devices hooked up to my Nighthawk router-XBOX One,Smart TV's,Firestick etc. and everything works great. I live in a big apartment and my signal is excellent. I am definitely happy with my purchase!

This router has helped me enjoy the full speed of my fiber optic service. As soon as I set it up which was a very easy process I immediately noticed the difference between my old router and this one. While this router is definitely more pricey than what I would normally pay for a router its worth every penny.
TOP NOTCH ROUTER
Best router I've owned. I bought this for half price on a November 2018 Black Friday sale. It was powered on and setup in my apartment on December 2018. Almost 2 years later, it's been running flawlessly under heavy use. Background of setup: Chicago high rise, 100s of neighboring wireless networks, connected to a 1 Gigabit direction connection (the building is brand new and I believe they have fiber optic cables that provide the internet access; for me it's just a simple ethernet cable from the router into the wall - no other setup required), connected to: 3 TVs, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Nest Thermostat, WeMo Outlet switches, 2-3 laptops (depending on the time of day), iPhone, printer, you get the point... connected wired/wirelessly. Not even a hiccup in the last 21 months. I'm shocked how well this router works. Super stable and fast. ONE THING TO NOTE: I have a very clean setup; no cable modem to deal with. I think this also is one of the reasons performance and overall robustness of my internet access has been flawless with this router. Cable modem to router connections can be finicky and unreliable. Many times I believe it's the cable modem not resolving to the internet and people are quick to blame the router. I believe that is where many people run into trouble with these home networks. Overall, great pick for a router. Handles high speed internet well and it's reliable. I would definitely give this router a buy rating.
AC2600 Smart WiFi Router
This router is fantastic. Our boy just got sent home from school to begin online learning, subsequently my wife is going to work from home also. Laptops, cellphones, xbox, and a printer all at once. So at any given time we could have 7-9 devices connected at once. This thing doesn't miss a beat. Connects right up and gets down to business providing my family with great connectivity and fast wifi speeds! :)
Fair price, research computing needs vs router.
Price was fair in comparison to others of similar features. Initial setup was, at first, confusing. I am replacing an older Netgear router and remember that to be "plug and play". After contacting Netgear support for trouble connecting to my new AC2600 model, it was OK. Some reviews complained of poor technical support. I had no problems and was pleased with support. Now, looking back after tech support, it was not that complicated . I was expecting more ' plug it in and away you go '. I expected the new AC2600 to give me a little bit more signal strength bars than my old router ( it only gives me 1 more bar) . I am pleased with the speed of the router but it is just used for a basic home router. Dislike " Nighthawk App " availability to down on a Windows 10 pc.
I haven't had a drop in service since buying this. Before I had to reset my internet daily sometimes more. Haven't had a problem since getting this. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a new reliable router.
Needs more detailed instruction.
Not all instructions necessary were there. For instance, one of the first things that should have been mentioned was to put the antennas on. The wires are in the way if you do it later and you have to take them back out and put anntennas on.
Works great with Suddenlink in TX
After a year of putting up with really bad Internet service through Suddenlink, I have a recommendation on next-door I went and purchased the Nighthawk. Worlds of difference. Well worth it.
Extremely pleased with this product!
I was having trouble with my cable providers equipment and decided to to try the AC2600, I was amazed with the results. I only wish I could have purchased it sooner!
SOLD ME A USED ROUTER!!
So upset! Third part seller sent me a used router. Contacted customer service and they said I have to wait 24-48 hours for a response from the seller! I am not able to utilize the nighthawk ap or anything since there is already a user for this serial number. How do you charge someone over $100 for a router, and then send a used one. I am beyond upset and hope they make this right. It came with no instructions or anything either. Just a brown box!
