NETGEAR® Nighthawk Review {spoiler alert, it ROCKS!}

We are in the process of turning our home into a Smart Home.

Our family is very into electronics and technology. Our goal for this year is to make our home as technologically advanced as we can. One of the first steps in this process is having the best possible router.

If you are like us, your internet connection is shared by lots of different devices.

 Most people don’t realize it, but if your router is a couple of years old, it probably wasn’t designed to work with as many devices as you have.

If you are running that many devices on your old router, you WILL have problems.

For instance, we have no less than 14 devices that use our internet connection.  This will only grow over time as we accumulate more electronics.  This includes laptops, TV’s, smartphones, tablets, game systems, and home automation products.  

After doing some research, we found that NETGEAR® Nighthawk is the best possible router for our home. 

My husband had a big part in setting up the NETGEAR® Nighthawk in our home. Much of my notes from this process came from him or watching him as he installed the router and made sure every device was connected and running at amazing speeds.

The installation is very simple….

…just follow the 6 steps in the manual which consists of screwing in the antennas, plugging in the cables, and logging in with a new password.  Even non-techies will be up and going in less than 10 minutes.

This setup was extremely simple. We were done in minutes! 

 
The coverage throughout our home is dramatically better with the new router.  We have a 2 story home with a lot of rooms, and the signal was good in every single room! The NETGEAR® Nighthawk runs on 2.4GHz and 5GHz and the 3 antennas on the router dramatically increases the range throughout your home (and in your backyard). It also has a usb 2.0 and usb 3.0 ports; useful for plugging in an external hardrive directly to your router.  This is great for storing family photos, videos, and music in one central location.
 
When we were using our old router and multiple people wanted to stream Netflix, Youtube, etc at one time, everyone definitely experienced a lot of buffering.  As soon as we switched to the Nighthawk, the buffering is now a problem of the past.
 

NETGEAR® has a great free app called NETGEAR® genie.

When you install the app on your phone or tablet, it will automatically recognize your new router.  

 
Then you can easily setup things like guest access, parental controls, and more. There is also a tool where you can check the wifi signal in any area of your home.

The NETGEAR® Nighthawk has taken us another step further in making our home a Smart Home.

 
Having a good strong router really enables both my husband and I to do everything we need to do when working from home and gives our family the ability to do multiple things at once on several different devices. We are really enjoying faster speeds and no buffering in our home! This is the next generation of streaming!
