Its working great as a router but we had to buy a separate ADSL 2+ modem and put it into bridge mode to run it.

Unfortunately, Netgear decided to dramatically change the internal components and then still sell it under the same name (R6700). With that said, Amazon has a little product alert indicating either R6700 or R6700v2. Well, they are shipping the R6700v2 which does not match some of the specifications shown on this page (in particular the CPU speed).
I know because after receiving a router that did not match, they offered to replace it and send the first version of the router (the one with the higher clock speeds as indicated on the actual product details) and ended up receiving the same thing (another V2).
I will say that for those interested in a router that will not be flashed with custom software or that will not use other more advanced functions a router can provide, this is no problem. For those of us that know the hardware and know what we are expecting, that is a problem.
I have it a 3 star because any company that makes an original version with better specs and then turns around and significantly changes this without changing the model number and making minor modifications on the box (see amazon's own photos - both boxes are pictured) simply does not deserve my trust. Speaking of ratings, many of the ratings you see here are lumped up with other Netgear products and also apply to the original more capable version.
I encourage you do your research and check reviews from different sources. This way, you will not be disappointed with the V2 that you will receive. I hope this help you make your decision!
Here's what I really like about this router.
- Easy to set up and despite it's features, it's very noob friendly
- Mobile apps that help you tweak and trouble shoot
- Firmware upgrades are easy and painless.
- Excellent throughput on all bands and channels.
- Excellent wireless range and signal strength on all bands.
Now onto the bad things, of which there is really only one.
Here's what happened. I've purchased two of these routers. One for me, one for the girlfriend. The 5Ghz band on my router has ceased to function. At first it was transmitting a very weak and unstable signal. Now it's just gone. I now have a very expensive 2.4Ghz wireless router.
And to be perfectly fair, the wired and 2.4Ghz bands/channels are still going like gangbusters. But I bought this for the 5Ghz, not the 2.4
- NetGear customer service and support is one of worst I have ever encountered.
If your product is less than 90 days old, they will be more than happy to assist you. If your product is more then 90 days old then they expect you to PAY THEM to "trouble shoot" your item. In my case, they wanted 49.99 for "Advanced" tech support to come to a conclusion that I already knew about. The router needed to be replaced.
I get that we (the customer) need to jump through their hoops to verify that the product is actually defective. But why should I have to pay you to replace your faulty product?
We went through the entire process and guess what... The router needed to be replaced. Was told that I would get a follow up email with instructions on what I needed to do next to complete the RMA 24 hours later, email never arrived. They cant even be bothered to do that much. Apparently if I want to RMA this device, Im expected to jump through even more hoops. NetGear, my time is more valuable than that. I'll simply wash my hand of this and move on.
TL:DR NetGear Customer Service and Support is a joke. If your breaks, don't bother with CS, simply buy something else.
Over the course of the next month, the smart devices grew angry. They couldn't chat freely and with reckless abandon. Sometimes they wouldn't ever hear each other. The Chromecast cried in solace. The smart lightbulbs faded to dark. Our guests grew angry with our unreliable network as Game of Thrones struggled to stream. We lost friends. Made enemies. At a certain point we decided enough is enough: it is time to throw more money at this problem.
That's how we ended up with this spaceship. I spent twenty minutes going through all the advanced settings to make sure it was set up well enough to satisfy my inner geek, then I unleashed it upon the internet. Game of Thrones streamed quickly. Netflix couldn't feed my router fast enough. My smart devices snapped to attention. The Chromecast wept, this time with tears of joy.
I am a hero. And all it took was a lot of money.
