    Another good router from Netgear

    Ruud | 2 September 2020 | In the version: Netgear Nighthawk RAX50 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Range of the router.
    • Handy Nighthawk app, can also be accessed from a modem. Just don't know why you would want that.
    • Installation via the app left something to be desired. Logged in via PC and installation was done in no time.

    Range and speed is fine with this router. Compared to the previous router, it has improved a lot.

    Bad price quality ratio

    Rogier | 18 September 2020 | In the version: Netgear Nighthawk RAX50 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Easy to install
    • Optimal 5GHz connection
    • Extremely bad 2.4ghz
    • Range is barely better than a standard Ziggo modem
    • Too expensive for what you get

    Before I received this router, I used the Ziggo connectbox as a router. Works great but wanted to improve range. That's why I bought this router. Range has barely improved and the speed of the 2.4GHz is bizarrely bad. You can't really use it at all.

    Returned the router after 1 week of use. Definitely not worth the purchase price.

    Good

    Ali | 8 November 2020 | In the version: Netgear Nighthawk RAX50 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • High speeds with and without cable
    • Easy installation
    • The range is not much different from a normal router

    It is easy to install and easy to manage through the app once installed. It gives fast internet speeds, but the range is normal. If you just want a better range than any other modem, this is not recommended.

    very fast wifi router
    • wide reach
    • fast
    • Wi-Fi 6
    • cool, you need a little knowledge to fully set up the device
    • few settings via app

    Very fast wifi router, many settings possible.
    No more lag even with 4K.
