Anyone have any opinions/experience with this one? Looking to get my own wifi router as the Spectum supplied one cannot handle all my houses devices w/o continually dropping connections throughout the day.

Always read the 3 stars reviews. Especially for a product with 3K reviews. There's good info there.

Based on a balance of 1 vs 5 star - it seems like it works, or it doesn't. I.E. it's a gamble, but if it's broken, just return it.

We're finally starting to see WiFi6 routers on the market. This is a good price for a midrange WiFi 6 router.

Seems like a good deal for Wifi 6, but based on the feedback I've seen on Netgear's support and warranty over the past couple years... if you have any issues, GOOD LUCK! You're gonna need it.

I just got the next version of this router, AX3000 and is very bad compared to what is promised. My AC router is touching 500mbps consistently and this Netgear AX (Wi-Fi 6) is struggling to even reach 400mbps. Support has no clue why and telling me to do 100 different tests, will be returning it.

Is wifi 6 simply hardware dependant or requires a plan upgrade with your ISP as well?

Nothing to do with your ISP (unless you're leasing your WiFi access point from them). WiFi 6 is the next standard in terms of WiFi (the WiFi Alliance basically rebranded 802.11ax == WiFi 6, 802.11ac == WiFi 5, 802.11n == WiFi 4, etc.), and yes, it requires new hardware (both on the access point and client side) to fully take advantage of it.

WiFi 6 does not require an upgraded plan or any notification with your ISP. It generally won't help your Internet speeds at all unless you were limited by your previous router (unlikely though technically possible).

The reviews are combined for different models (which amazon should ban). This model only has 86 reviews. Almost all of the negative reviews appear to be from tech-incompetent people.

P.S. the "review" you linked is not even a real review, just bs based on the specs.

Have good experiences with Netgear Orbi (pre WiFi 6). Router plus one satellite cover my 2900 sq ft house nicely (1900 top floor and1000 ground floor). It is rock solid, no issues, and running for 3 years.

Amazon isn't likely to ban their own brilliant idea.

I saw similar earlier this year when Walmart had it for $99. New AX router was slower than my 4 year old AC router on all my devices (mix of AC and AX). WiFi 6 routers are not ready for prime-time. I'm planning to skip all current WiFi 6 offerings and wait until the next set of AX routers come out.

I am also a happy Netgear Orbi user but this shouldn't be any comparison to the quality of their AX routers. At least the 1800 and 3000 series are not good and I am saying this with my own experience.
