Nighthawk R7000 - Superb router, can't go wrong with it!
on 23 July 2017
What a router! I connected the R7000 to my modem and I was instantly able to stream Netflix, NowTV and other providers without any lag. My previous DGN2200 router was struggling to keep a constant stream, buffering a lot. My max possible Internet speed is 17mb, and I get around 16mb, which is good in my opinion (I am lucky enough to live about 400 yards from the exchange). The Nighthawk wireless is carrying this speed across the house, whether I am on 2ghz or 5 ghz. I don't think either frequency make a difference to the Internet speed in my house environment, apart from the fact that 2ghz range is obviously better. I am really pleased with this router, I was able to tweak a few things in the advanced options, and the app is user friendly (although ultimately you need to log in a computer to use the advanced options). The only downside of the Nighthawk is the size of it, I find massive for a router (at least compared to the well established and old DGN2200). The antennas are also very imposing.... The is the reason I knocked a star off. Make a smaller version and it is a 5 star product in my opinion. I cant' even imagine how good the upgrade versions (2600 etc.) must be!
