What to expect if you're like me
 
Given how much we rely on the internet, it honestly surprises me that more people don’t invest good money on a router and modem. The last router and modem I bought was more than five years ago, so it was time for an upgrade. Here’s how I use the internet: I live in a 1,300 square foot condo in a congested urban area. Thick concrete and metal make up my walls, so range was an issue for me in the past (more on that in a bit). I stream 4K, HDR, play on my XBOX 1 X in 4K, download movies, play ga...

Not just best gaming, but best router by a mile
 
I've been using Netgear's XR500 Gaming Router for a week now and I am in love. Before I received this router, I was using the Netgear Nighthawk AC 1900 (C7000-100NAS) as my modem/router combo in one. While the Nighthawk AC 1900 was nice, I hated that when my son and I both played XBox One and PS4 at the same time as my wife was watching Netflix, we'd both get lag occasionally. If we were playing CoD or Fortnight as well, I would have to remember to stop uTorrent from running on m computer as tha...

Terrible router with terrible phone support
 
I was hesitant to buy this router mainly because I worried I was simply paying for the "Gaming" and "Nighthawk" names over a less game oriented AC router. Reviews tend to be very good for the XR500 and it won more than one site's editor's choice. So I decided to get it since I recently upgraded to a gigabit connection. The router works well as a $300 gigabit switch. My wired desktop hits 987 Mbps and I even saw a 3-4 ms reduction in my ping (avg prior was around 35ms). That is about where...

Great router, with room to grow.
 
Note: This is a HIGHLY abridged version of my review, if you have questions, please feel free to ask. There has become a trend of manufacturers slapping the word ‘Gaming’ on a product, in order to increase appeal and price. Netgear hasn’t done this until now, so, needless to say, when I saw ‘Gaming Router’ slapped onto Netgear’s newest product offering, the XR500….. I sighed. Fortunately, or perhaps unfortunately, Netgear already has a pretty solid range of routers that operate extremely w...

Disappointed
 
Finally gave up after two day and a total of four hours on the phone with NETGEAR techies. Where do I begin, actual Speedtest were half my subscribed speed both hard wired and wireless. NETGEAR first made sure my equipment was working properly, all passed with flying colors. Next they keep raising me to the next level and after repeating same test over and over and again determining that my equipment was not at fault they wanted to send me to the next level which was debugging their router, no t...

Range Not Great - Returned It
 
The range was not that great on this wi-fi router. I returned it and used my Apple AirPort Extreme with much better range.

Not as good as promised, expect far less
 
I thought I would give this model a try. Network Plus, Security Plus, A Plus (repair) rated IT with 25 years experience. Bought this for home with 4 teenagers, 2 xbox one, PS4 and lots of Roku, Firebox, youTube and Netflix watchers. Easy to install and configure the network. That's where the fun stops. In my house, the "device map" looks illegible with 56 devices. The problem is the Router cannot determine which is the Apple Watch and which is an unnamed device when in fact they have the sam...

Amazing New Gaming Router
 
Up front: I received this free of charge as part of Netgear's First Look review program. This new router is an amazing piece of consumer technology that is chock full of features for gaming enthusiasts, and especially for pro gamers. You'll be blown away by the new operating system and level of control that you get. Here are some pros and cons: Pro + The new DumaOS is simply excellent. Much better than the traditional cheap OSes that come on consumer routers. It is slick, it is fast, it is po...

Pleasantly surprised
 
Great router that is rich in features for gamers. I can customize how far away game servers can be, and prioritize my console and console traffic. I can even limit the bandwidth on individual devices on my network. I haven’t played any games using it yet, but got A+ quality ratings from initial bufferbloat tests on wireless. And my console will be wired.
