A good router for gaming
I really like the ease of use and setup. Every option has a help button to explain functions. Best tool by far is the geo filter. Gives you faster ping times on online games.

Install with ease
Very impressed with the ease of the router installation and the accompanying tools to monitor and control the router. Nice step up!

Great router that still has some things to work out!
I've had this router since october, and netgear has yet to release a patch for this router "not" to freeze if you leave an xbox one hooked up to it. I have to remove the cable manually from the router when i turn my xbox one off or the router will lock up. This has been a major issue since the release of this router and has not been addressed to the date of this writing.

Game changer
Definitely a game changer when it comes to controlling lag on cod and limiting connections to good lobbies! Ping is king!

No custom dns, fails to power on properly most of the time
Router works great when it works. When the power goes out while i am out of town the damn thing won't reconnect to the internet so i can't vpn into my house. As well, you can't set a custom dns for your clients. I have to setup a separate dhcp server in my house. What kind of router doesn't have these basic features, especially at this price. Stay away! Get an asus instead.

Perfect for gaming....And everything else!
Best router we have had. Very easy to set up and the software is great. The geo-filtering is a cool feature but i have yet to use it. The ui is simple and easy to use. The speed is fast and everything runs flawlessly on wireless.
