Wow, the range on this IS amazing!
September 12, 2018
I swear I've tried them all - this is hands down the best! We have a 6,500 sq ft office area spread out over 4 floors in a concrete building that was really hard to keep a decent wifi signal through. We have a comcast/xfinity cable internet connection and have tried EVERYTHING for a decent signal! We tried the nighthawk x6 tri-band wifi router and an extender at first and it didn't work in half of the building. Then, tried to use just a router and multiple extenders (every single extender on the market.) We even tried both Google's pods and Xfinity's pods. Neither worked well. Xfinity's pods were a joke! Finally this one came out and I bought it as an upgrade to the other Netgear 1900. We were all in shock with the range that this one gives us! Not only is there not one dead zone in the entire building (again, 6,500 sq ft of concrete on 4 floors) but also we can get a decent signal literally a 1/4 of a mile down the road and pick up the neighbors wifi signals too (although they are locked.) I simply can't believe the difference in the technology! In addition, it literally took less than 2 minutes to set up. It has an easy pair button that you can use with your router that helps you pair the two in 3 seconds. Also, the new lights on the front interface of the unit indicate if you have the extender in the optimum location for the best connection or if you should move it. It also allows you to either extend the network (by using the same network name) or creating a completely NEW network by renaming the extended area as a new zone. Honestly, it is the best unit on the market! Can't go wrong with this one.
