Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic future proof router! After purchasing another companies 3 Node Mesh system 8 months ago I was having so many issues and received poor customer support. In the end out of necessity for a stable and reliable router, I purchased the Netgear AX8.This router is awesome! The wifi range is fantastic especially the 5Ghz band and the range out performs my previous system 3 node mesh system, and the addition of WIFI 6 with my Samsung S10 is even faster. The biggest thing I have loved so far is the stability and blazing fast consistent speeds even at long range through multiple walls also who doesn’t love well engineered hinged antenna system ;) Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage I did quite a lot of research before i settled for rax80 nighthawk, I read lots of revies, lots of videos on youtube and was just overwhelmed by the positive responses of this wifi router.Its now been a month of use and i must say i just love it.The wifi range is amazing, my old router would give 1 bar and rax80 almost 4 bars with great coverage of my large home. Another thing i love about rax80 is the negear circle. I setup my childs devices to be restrictive and it was super easy to setup.Also i am using the ddns which works really well.Overall really happy with the performance, price is a tad bit high but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST ROUTER EVER!! I wasn't really wanting to upgrade my router at all, however, I did an upgrade for my parents and got them to get this router as it will fill the whole 3 bedroom house with WIFI 6 technology, they bought it and I set it up fro them, literally the best experience I have ever had in setting up a router, just "plug and play", it takes you through a simple step-by-step workflow on the browser or you can download the app and can even set it up on there as well...Long story short... I bought one for myself and it was definitely worth every $

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Router! We recently did a house extension doubling the size which therefore made lots of dead Wi-Fi zones. I initially went to a shop to purchase an extender however after talking to the sales assistant he convinced me to upgrade the router. I was using a stock standard router from the ISP , However this router has made a massive difference. Much faster, longer range and overall a fantastic easy to set up product. I would recommend this to everybody Plus it looks like something out of Star Wars for that extra cool affect :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, fast, smooth product This router replaced my 2 year old Netgear R7000P router, this was a smooth setup (much the same as the last router) and once setup, I found this router to be super responsive (one of the fastest I've used) and very good wifi connection, throughout the house the Wifi works great, this is before utilising Wifi 6 features as currently I only have Wifi 5 devices. I found Chromecast devices in the house to be working faster then ever, super impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router This wireless router is fast and supports AX3 3000M transmission rate. When used with a wireless network card, it can surpass wired networks and support 5G conversion and 2.4 rate. The initial setup is also very simple. Novices can also download the app first, and then scan the code to perform the wizard-based configuration of the router, usually within 10 minutes. The signal strength is not bad, and the medium-sized apartment is fully competent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST ROUTER FOR A FAMILY This router is amazing! I went from an older netgearN600 model which gave me roughly 30mb/s download speed and lacked coverage throughout my 2 storey house, to this new router and my god. I get 100mb/s+ everyday and the signal strength covers all of my house and some more! I bought this in conjunction with an extender, which I don’t even need because this router is so powerful!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fixed my problems My internet was dropping out when I was running multiple devices while using torrent programs and was requiring restarting of Apple TV and Laptop. Now I can have everything going without issue, torrents are downloading in seconds and have not needed to restart at all. Set up was simple! Love the look although wife thinks it looks too geeky!
