It didn't start very well with this as I didn't manage to access the interface in it via threaded device at the beginning. Unplug and plug in network cables, restart a number of times and finally it went. However, this is a recurring problem. Even wireless devices have difficulty connecting to the GUI at times and I do not understand why. Restart is required to get everything started. It therefore feels very unstable and unreliable. Seeing that several others here have had the same experience.
Otherwise, this by far has the best Wifi I tried! I mainly use 2.4Ghz, but even 5Ghz seems to work terribly well! I now compare it with an Asus RT-AC88U and when I sit on my patio in the other side of the house I have full coverage according to. Windows 10. Asus'n has 1-2 strokes less!
Looking at div. apps in the phone and they all agree that Netgear has significantly better wifi network.
Previously tested a Linksys EA9500 and it was not near the X10.
Good coverage on wifi is acc. me the biggest reason to buy this router!
But besides that, I don't see what you get for 4000kr! Yes, you get LED lights in the antennas! Just such a thing!
The 60GHz network is quite pointless, partly because there are hardly any devices that support it yet. Partly because the range is so short that you can just as easily pull a cable.
I have tried 6 different USB disks, 4 of them worked directly. The 5th started to work suddenly after being connected for 3-4 days! Totally incomprehensible. The 6th, which is the one I usually use as NAS, doesn't work at all. Therefore installed the DD-WRT and then it also works. But the DD-WRT should be installed so avoid Kongs and go to Brainslayers instead. The Ethernet ports stopped working when I was running Kongs.
The support for Netgear seems to be really lousy, not to say non-existent. 90 days if you register. Otherwise, you can keep up with the forum.
If it weren't for the amazingly good wifi online this one did not know if I even thought about keeping it. But non-existent support, software that does not inspire any confidence and requires restart now and then, that it does not pass my NAS and that I have to use an external repeater to access the Internet made me return this. I then had the Internet via a mobile broadband router and needed to be able to use the router as a wireless bridge. This is not possible for Netgear.
So I returned the Netgear X10 and drove on my Asus RT-AC88U instead, which seemed to make most of it right out of the box! But I got tired of everything rubbing it too after a few weeks and running today on a Synology RT-2600AC. It has almost as good wifi as Netgear and did everything I wanted, as I wanted, light and smooth, straight out of the box! Absolutely fantastic router whose only drawback is that it only has 4 Ethernet ports.
Then you want a router, with lots of features that only work, and do it well, buy a Synology RT-2600AC. About unbeatable range (speed I do not care about and therefore cannot comment on) on wifi is at the top of the prio list so consider Netgear X10!
