Netgear's fastest mesh router sets the bar for the category, but it's overkill for almost everyone.
This is a speedy mesh router at a tempting price, but the spotty, inconsistent mesh performance is a deal-breaker.
The Netgear is expensive, but earns its $200 asking price with incredibly fast speeds and useful features.
It's nothing fancy, but the newest Netgear Orbi is a fine mesh router system at a terrific price.
The high cost aside, the Orbi System is a sure and easy way to cover a relatively large home with high-speed Wi-Fi coverage.
If you have the money to spend, and already have an Orbi router, the Orbi Outdoor Satellite will give you great coverage outdoors and speeds as fast as you get inside. Make sure you mount it somewhere safe if you plan to leave it outdoors.
This is a worthy Wi-Fi 6 upgrade for power users, but it's more than most people need from a router.
Netgear and NetDuma teamed up to create a gamer's delight inside a futuristic-looking router. The XR500's speed and range are more than enough for a medium-to-large home. The DumaOS interface has lots of customization options and helpful hints for even novice router users.
Even when it's working well, the Netgear R8000 Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit Wireless Router has nothing to justify its expensive price tag.
If you need a powerful Wi-Fi solution for a large home, the X4S is a great choice.
The Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router WNDR3400 is a great dual-band router for any home at an affordable price. Its lack of Gigabit Ethernet might steer enthusiasts away, however.
The Netgear Powerline 1200 kit is the affordable answer to those needing a reliable, fast and convenient solution to extend their wired home network.
Geeks with deep pockets might love the X10, but the majority of home users will find it too expensive for their daily networking needs.
Netgear's ReadyNAS Ultra 6 is still a good NAS, but its edge has been dulled by the likes of QNAP. X-RAID 2 and ReadyNAS Vault are compelling features, though, and if you need these it might be worth a look.
The WNDR3800 was a little fickle with our test chipsets, affecting our wireless performance results. Still, for the price range it's a decent router, and it should fulfil most needs.
$50 a month gets you 10GB of data through this no-contract carrier; $25 a month gets you only 1.5GB.
The Netgear Powerline Av 200 Wireless-N Extender Kit XAVNB2001 extends both your wired and wireless networks to the far corners of the house, making it an excellent product for any large property. Get ready to fiddle a little with the setup process in some cases, as its included instructions aren't clear.
