Netgear XR500 Nighthawk AC2600 Pro Gaming Wi-Fi Router is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightning! Having just migrated from ADSL2+ to a NBN FTTC connection, I needed an equally performing router to get the most out of the connection. The NETGEAR® Nighthawk® Pro Gaming WiFi Router AC2600 (XR500) was the perfect solution. I can stream, play and watch without interruption and love having the best equipment to support me. Thanks Netgear, another win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router, does the job. Sure does the job and I love the OS. Would've liked to have seen built in Cyber Security, but great work and team effort from Duma and Netgear. I'm very happy overall, so five stars from me :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New NETGEAR Nighthawk Pro review Bought for a new home, with high demands on speed and data for use by an adult gamer and 2 other adults for business across up to 4 devices and 3 mobiles, on a new FTTP NBN connection. Used so far on wifi only internally, the combination of fibre optic NBN and the Nighthawk is a revelation after our 4G broadband limited data alternative that we've been used to. Very pleased, easy set-up, blistering speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Netgear AX2600 / XR500 review. Love it! Super impressed with this router! I have over 30 wireless devices connected to it and it works perfectly. Coverage is excellent. I linked this to my Telstra "smart" modem/router and setup was a breeze. Simply switched off wireless on the Telstra modem and setup same SSIDs and passwords on the new router. Easy! Love the management software and the ease of applying firmware upgrades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional I purchased this router for the gaming prioritisations but I was most impressed with the sheer amount of devices it can handle. I’m streaming 4K to 3 devices with no hiccups and I can still play the PS4 with absolute minimum lag. This is a brilliant piece of kit and well worth the price tag.

Love the GUI and LEDs, easy to see live updates. Net Duma OS is a added bonus which makings managing the router easy and professionally. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional router I recently purchased this router to replace my old Belkin unit, I didn't realise I was using a dodgy router until I used my new one! Fast, easy to setup and has a heap of features to easily get it working the way you want, I wouldn't buy any other router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it all Gaming or not gaming this router is definitely a must! 5ghz wifi range is massive and 2.4ghz range is almost too big! No dropouts and internet speeds have more than doubled from previous standard modems the internet companies provide!
