Netgear XR1000 Nighthawk AX5400 6-Stream Wi-Fi 6 Gaming Router is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 540.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ll be using this for a long while This router definitely performs! I have it bridged with my modem-router and it couldn’t have made my Internet anymore faster! Only thing I may sometimes have issues with involving the router would be moments in which it doesn’t connect to the internet after enabling wireless AP. But that only ever happens late into the night when I should prob get some sleep. Video conferences go really smooth with the bump in speed and it has amazing coverage! Even separated by a whole floor, my PS5 stays connected to the 5Ghz frequency no problem! To anyone looking for a good quality gaming router at a relatively great price, the search is over.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No VPN, No Bueno My top reason for purchasing this router was to support my two sons who game via console. Consoles are particularly threatened by DDOS attacks, and I’m no exception having been under attack using my Comcast issued router. Without hybrid VPN capability at the router level, my IP address is exposed. Your equipment is not compatible with leading VPN subscription services like Nord. Fix this Netgear, it’s a major gap in the market as Norton only makes products for PC Gamers, console gamers are exposed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Straight FIRE! I’ve been using TP-link or Ubiquity gear for at least a decade. Unfortunately I’ve been running into huge problems with stability or paywalls for options that should be included with the hardware. I chose Netgear for their reviews on reliability, speed, power and warranty. It’s only been installed for a week but I’ve not had to reboot once. Not once. Better throughput and power. Only 1 device required to cover as much as what I needed 3 mesh devices to cover previously. Such an improvement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nighthawk XR1000 The overall product is very light and run quiet and cool. I can run many WiFi devices at once with little interruptions. So far, I haven’t noticed a significant increase in my ping at all. Gaming seems to be about the same as it was with my old router. (Linksys WRT 1900 ACS) WiFi speeds are faster to all my devices, Ethernet cable is about the same. The nighthawk xr1000 seems to be a reasonable deal. It’s not over priced, it does it’s job, and is worth a try. Don’t expect it to magically make your ISP better. I have charter and I believe your ping only ends up being as good as your isp will give you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but could get better over time This router is an extremely good upgrade compared to my previous router, albeit it has some downsides such as delayed updates due to multiple testing phases and some minor bugs after firmware updates which I trust will be improved on and fixed over time. However other than that, it preforms it’s job extremely well and offers a multitude of gaming focused features such as Geo Fencing to help select which servers you prefer and want to use to QOS features that help optimize how much bandwidth usage you want to allow per device and has improved my overall gaming experience significantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant difference Replaced an old nighthawk unit from 2014. Immediately saw results from wifi cameras, streaming movies and the espn app. Handles our 22 devices with no lags or slowdowns. Love the detail and ease of use in the admin site.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything I wanted and needed! Almost.... Netgear has always been very user friendly in my opinion. Everything from the setup to the GUI. This router so far, has been working fine. However, I’m not the biggest fan of DumaOS. Many features and setting I would normally find in the main GUI are non existent in duma and the QOS has been nothing to write home about. The speeds promised are just not there. This includes wired connections. All of this of course is a “so far” opinion. I’m looking to get a little more hands on and see if I can work some of these issues out myself. Netgear might still have a chance at blowing me away.
