Great modem. Nothing but good results from this router. Flash with ddwrt. Never had to reset router on stock or ddwrt firmware.

I paid less than that a/c through Staples Jan14. Price hasn't moved much. The router is OK, but not worth retail price.

This is a SD. I own this router. I paid way too much (350) 1.5 years ago, but that was because I did not know how to flash my own router and I heard it was difficult and possibly could go wrong so I bought from flashrouters. Still, it was going for 250 back then so it is what it is.

Anyway, since then I've learned a good deal about networking in comparison and I have used DD-WRT (came with Kong build) and now I have tomato (Shibby) on it. I love it, it's super fast, great range, reliable as hell. I turned my older netgear 4900 into an AP using tomato and connected it to this one.

Solid!

With DD-WRT on the Nighthawk, this things amazing and one of the best routers out there now.
And when I bought the R7000, it was a deal with a cable modem bundle and it's MUCH better than the ripoff one TW (And other cable companies) rents you for 4-6 bucks a month. Using this modem instead, pays for itself in a year, so this is worth buying. (Off topic but I want everyone off the cable companies as much as possible lol)
Better antennas for the two 2.4 antenna for 30 bucks (The center antenna is 5ghz and switching it doesn't make a difference so you just need 2). MUCH better than the stock antennas.

Because I've learned over the years to NOT go cheap with stuff like antenna. The antenna I went with are great for the price. The cheap Amazon ones are cheap for a reason.

The Nighthawk's only downside is it's size, it's around that of an iPad lol. But this beast can also be OC'd, so expect this to raise your router expectations in the future.

Here's a link to Kongs firmware for this: http://www.desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/

and here's the Changelog for the more tech savvy
http://www.desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/Changelog

If you ask me DD-WRT is a MUST since it's constantly updated, the community is super helpful and most important it gives the option to add a built in adblocker in Privoxy to every PC on the network. This way there's no need to set up a custom hosts file on each device.

And select a wireless channel after installation, DO NOT USE AUTO CHANNEL, otherwise it will not use wide channel setup and you will be limited to only 72mbit. Also, change channel width to WIDE and enable UPnP in NAT settings.

Some of the stock firmware after V1.0.4.28 has been a bit buggy and you can get some slowdowns or router freezes. V1.0.4.28 is rock solid stable (my uptime is about a 9 months since last reboot) so if you're running into any issues just download that version and re-flash.

I actually have TP-Link Archer C9 [amazon.com] that I bought when it was on sale for $100.

Would the antenna that you linked, work for my Archer C9?

Wow thanks that's a lot of useful information and I'm going to order those antenna right now! I am somewhat confused by channel width, do you mean the 20,40,80 setting? Also, on Tomato, there are settings on the 5ghz band for "upper" and "lower" when you choose a channel. What do these do? I also did not know that the middle antenna was the 5ghz.

I switched from DD-WRT because tomato is easier to use and the Kong builds were confusing, to me at least. Also, there is better support (easier to work with imo) for vpns for which I use PIA.

I've heard this is pretty much the best router for custom builds but that may be outdated information. A while ago I heard there were issues with the r8000 and custom builds and I'm not sure how much better performance that router provides. Anyway, this more than suits my needs, I will however take a big benefit from extending my 2.4ghz range as I live in a long flat, router on one end so thanks again for the antenna!
