The router is easy to use and really fast. In fact it is so fast, that many web pages wouldn't load. It took a bit of fiddling, but what I found was that I needed to configure DynDNS on the router, and not use the DNS relay that is on my DSL modem. Once I made this change, it has been fantastic. The only negative is that it is a little pricey. No regrets. Now I wish I had a faster broadband connection to take advantage of it!
We have Pivit (yes, I never heard of them either before moving !) as a provider and their high-speed network functions only with a subset of routers. This one did the trick, we have 2 networks with strong signals throughout the house. We also use Circle (Disney parental control tool/app) integrated with the router and allows to turn on and off kids devices from the router itself
We recently changed phone companies and received the “generic” router for our nbn connection. Every day, 2 or 3 times we would have to reset our router and we were constantly losing connection. We bought the nighthawk and I couldn’t be happier. Not a single drop in connection, our speed is faster than it has ever been and the range has us covered over our whole house. Set up was simple and the phone app is really cool too!
Bit the bullet and bought this router. Best thing I ever did I have full speed of my internet wirelessly 100Mbps across all of my devices. Had to up grade because the router provided by my ISP was shocking. Recommend this to everyone.
With the NBN due to be active in 6-9 weeks, we were looking for a combined ADSL2+ / NBN modem router. 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.
