There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
That said, I'm only giving it one star as the Router is setup to regularly send usage data to Netgear servers 'to assist with problem solving'. This would be fine, except Netgear don't (and have refused to) give any option to opt out of this process.....arguably a breach of European GDPR legislation.
There is no mention of this mandatory data transfer on the packaging and the user is only told on first setup, far to late for many returns policies.
If Netgear back-tracks on this position, I would happily change the rating to 5 star.

Nighthawk AX8 8-Stream Wi-Fi 6 Router (RAX80)
I have experience setting up wireless routers for many years. From the very start, this router has never worked for more than a few minutes.
Setting up the router via the mobile Nighthawk app was easy. The app found the router, then automatically updated the firmware and rebooted. From there, everything went downhill. Our phones were disconnecting every few minutes, then would refuse to reconnect. Then got a weird 'password incorrect' error, even after the password had been accepted and the device had been working.
Tried to register my device for support on the Netgear support portal. Netgear provide 90 days support with a new device. However, I could not create a new support ticket because I got an error message saying 'support ended on 27/10/2019'. This date was 87 days in the future, at the time I tried to register. Then I sent an email to Netgear "customer services" to say that my device needed support, but I now needed support to even log on to the support portal. I waited for 2 weeks to see if Netgear replied: they never did.
Do yourself a favour: if you're considering buying this or anything from Netgear, first take a look at community.netgear.com. I looked up my device and it's riddled with people who have had nothing but trouble from Netgear products. A lot of owners had their router working perfectly well, then a firmware update turned their device into a super-expensive paperweight, after the return period had expired. Luckily, I was within the return period and have sent mine back for a refund. Life's too short: I wouldn't waste my time beta-testing a device for a company that can't even be bothered to reply to customer service emails.
I'm never going to bother with these consumer devices again. I've bought a proper Cisco Aironet 3800 wireless access point. Having said that, a friend recently bought an Asus RT-AC86U and it has worked flawlessly from day 1. Whatever you do, avoid the Netgear Nightmare AX8 or any of their devices as their devices and the company has serious issues and just don't seem to care.
Hope that's useful, good luck!
Initially I bought this router thinking it was better than the TPLINK AX6000 router, it worked great for 1-2 weeks. Overtime, I have seen a lot of issues such as WIFI networks not showing even when you are near the router. WIFI network passwords NOT BEING RECOGNIZED - Netgear has done a number of firmwares, along the way the user experience diminished. The problem with Netgear is that they have terrible customer support - they will give you 3 months phone support/email support - beyond the 3 months I was quite disappointed to find there is NO way to access support - no chat, no phone support number, no ticket you can submit. When you setup Netgear you will register your account - beyond 3 months Netgaer removes support on your portal which you need to logon to access this. I have never seen a manufacturer use such shady tactics. Yes I know this router has the love CES2019 product badge - but this really means nothing to be honest. It is questionable how these are awarded. CES badges are awarded based on information the manufacturer provides them. They do not do their independent testing. What was really amazing is after I returned this router and used my standard virgin router things worked much faster and better. All my smart home devices loaded up in a flash. I know a lot might complain about standard routers issued by service providers - but in my experience over this I cannot convincingly say that third party routers which cost more will perform better. Netgear touts this as AN AX router - that's great - all devices that you can buy today dont even use this technology yet so there is no way to use this feature as you will be using your standard b,g,n networks. Once nice thing about the Netgear router is it looks futuristic with the wings beyond that im not sure if their special antennas do anything more than a standard router in my opinion.
Let me tell you - ignore that. This is a BEAST. I spent 3+ weeks trying out different solutions on wifi. I tried Orbi mesh. While that is a good product, I am not really in need of a mesh. Speeds averaged 460-525 Mbps. (I tested at different times of day but same time frames with other products).
I tried the XR500 Nighthawk that is one of the highest rated devices with DumaOS. So many issues that I was losing my mind. I tried several fixes. Separate the bands, channels, etc. My security cams were going offline every 30 mins or so for at least 15. I was so fed up with trying to trouble shoot the device. My speeds were 580 - 670 Mbps with it which I did enjoy. But speed is only useful if its actually CONNECTED to the devices.
Last ditch effort I tried this router. The RAX80 and holy moly. Plugged in, used the mobile app and was up within 5 mins. Every device attached with no issues. No disconnects after multiple days use. Speed improvement on every item. I have 38 devices accessing my wifi as part of the smart home. This monster just cranks it out. No problems at all. My speed on several tests as compared to the same day/ time as the ones above - 830-960 Mbps I am not sure why its such a huge improvement but it is. I cannot say enough good things about this router. Not only is is a monster with handling speeds and multiple devices - just look at it. It is not one you want to hide. You want to show this baby off. Several people have asked me what the space ship is. This thing went from being in an Amazon box to installed and cranking out wifi / lan within 10 minutes and NOT a single drop of signal. I am future proof as well. So I say if you can afford it, do not hesitate. You will really like it.
After 2 months this router is still the best one I've ever seen. Still getting top level speeds right at a gig. I've got 42 devices attached to it (smart home) and it doesn't even cough. I rarely am this surprised. This router is still #1 in everything I tried!
It took four months but the money £409.99 has now been refunded into my bank account.
Update 15th October 2020, the following is from Netgear support:-
Dear Mr. Wilkins, We acknowledge the email that you sent us. We understand your frustrations about this Refund Request. This took a long time since this is not the process that we have for product refund. We are working on the request now and I will send you an update once completed. We appreciate your time and thank you for contacting NETGEAR. Regards, M P Customer Care Advocate NETGEAR Inc
My response :-
Hello again Ms P,
So you are (TRYING UNSUCCESSFULLY) to tell me that a refund is extremely rare and since Netgear was founded in 1996 and trades almost in every country in the world for around the last 24 years, Netgear have never ever refunded anyone’s money and so there is no procedure for refunding even though, and I advise you to take a look at the reviews on Amazon yourself if you do not believe me, the following it is all true because I have counted myself PERSONALLY and this is just for your NETGEAR Nighthawk 12-Stream AX12 Wifi 6 Router (RAX200) - AX11000 Tri-Band alone and no other products Netgear sell have been counted and the total is:-
5 Star = 56%
4 Star = 8%
3 Star = 8%
2 Star = 4%
1 Star = 24%
24%, nearly a quarter of sales and totalling all the CRITICAL reviews for 1 and 2 Star only, there are….are you ready for this?
53 extremely bad criticisms from the U.K. customers AND….
194 extremely bad criticisms from AROUND THE REST OF THE WORLD
That is just AMAZON SALES no-one else. So, I advise you to think again when telling lies that there is no system for refunding customers money because the statistics show a completely different story and I do not believe you.
I have for the past 10 weeks or more been in a one way battle with Netgear support.
I bought the AX12 Wi-Fi 6 router (RAX200)- AX11000 Tri-Band on the 10th May, delivered 13th. Around early July I started having trouble but put it down to other things simply because the router was new. I kept losing the connection to my TV, Amazon Prime Cube, CCTV cameras (I have 8) and that dreaded word "Alexa" as all my lights amongst other things are that word controlled.
I at last tracked the trouble down to the 2.4 GHZ on the router because it kept dropping out. Since the 27th July, (so that makes the router 10 weeks old) I have had 10 different support case numbers assigned to my router problem. I was promised a refund as the factory was closed and not making any because of the coronavirus and were out of stock.
I was also promised an “RMA” which is Netgears’ return process on the 27th July but as of today 30th August NOTHING. I have spent over 15 hours on the telephone with their support staff and every single time you tell the first one, too technical for her so she puts you onto a “Tech 1 Person” you tell them and they put you onto a “Tech 2 person” and then you tell them all over again and they put you onto a “Tech 3 person” so on and so on and each time you have to hang on for 30 or more minutes for the next one to answer.
Today the 30th August I spoke again to their support unit and was told that I had to send the unit back first and have it checked and so I replied but you still haven’t told me where to send it and I said no, I want a refund as promised because you are out of stock and the factory closed…..She said that was “UNTRUE” so I asked why I was told that and she couldn't answer. She sent me an "RMA" while I was on the phone and told to check my e-mail. I was told by a person "M P" they were out of stock.
I insisted that I wanted a refund or a replacement first because I could no longer trust what I was being told to the reply “you can trust me” I again said no I can't, I trusted MP and where did that get me? to which I was told no refund or replacement until I sent back first…..I told her I would see them in court and that would mean solicitors fees, court fees, my refund and I would request compensation and put the phone down.
In desperation, on the 24th August I sent an e-mail explaining everything to Netgears’ Sales: UKsales@netgear.com , Media Inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org, Investor Relations: email@example.com
NOTHING FROM ANY OF THEM NOT EVEN AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT.
I will also send a copy of this review to them as well.
After reading this it is now up-to-you if you still want to chance buying anything from NETGEAR.
I connected my Pixelbook to the router wifi and speed was about 2 mb/s. But when connected to the Google Wifi I got 12 mb/s. This meant that during the congested period the mesh network was definitely channelling the most bandwidth, as desired. My husband was able to play on his XBox One upstairs and my bitsy was able to use their laptop. Result!! So I think this switch was definitely worth buying and setting up.
When I connected to the web-based management software online for the switch, I was able to do a firmware upgrade. It changed the layout of the web-based app. By reading the online manual downloaded from the netgear website, I realised I needed to set the QoS settings to PORT BASED in order to set the priority as high, medium and low. It defaults to a different protocol. Once I realised this I was able to configure it in minutes.
Anyway, I don't think I would pay £100 for this switch, but £50 was a great price. It is well-built, and stylish. And definitely worth buying for my particular circumstances.
