      Even though I have only been using the product for less than 4 weeks, I must say i'm very satisfied with it. The set-up was easy and the speed in which it works is incredible. The price was remarkable for what this product offers. I would definitely consider this product in the future for my business and recommend it to family and friends

      Pricey Netgear router! It does the job but I just wish it had more of a range! My condo is on the 21st floor and if I'm connected to my wifi, by the time I'm on the 18th floor it cuts the signal!

      The modem/wireless router works really well. The only downside is it has very bright flashing lights so in the evening it is pretty bright. But other than that, a great product.

    • So great that I bought another one...
      Verified Purchase

      This cable modem/router was even better than expected. I loved returning my rented Time Warner Cable piece of crap modem and this replacement is much faster and will pay for itself in a year. The old modem had to reset often and this one has worked flawlessly from the start. Also, now there is less clutter having an all-in -one device. I bought an additional one for our new vacation home and it is working perfectly as well.

      • A:

        I just set mine up with Comcast yesterday. I tried calling Comcast several times but my call kept getting cut off. In the meantime, after the modem had been connected to my computer for about 15 minutes, a browser window for Comcast activation opened on it's own. I just followed the prompts and was up and running in no time. Range is much better than with my Comcast-provided wifi modem.
