Reviews & Community QA

NETGEAR Nighthawk XR500 Pro Gaming Ethernet Wireless Router is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1105.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best router I have had! Coming from a WRT32X router that died on a overnight update and randomly dropping the 2.4GHz band over the time from owning it from initial launch date, I exchanged it for XR500 and MAN!! What a night and day difference. I have had solid performance since the day I powered it on, the UI is very easy to work with and there has been a speed boost for majority of devices around my house. Also owning a good bit of smart devices like Philips Hue bulbs, Netgear Arlo cameras, multiple Amazon echos, a WiFi connected Roomba, and a Chamberlin MyQ system. This router handles all those devices/eco systems all while performing on everyday internet tasks to heavy gaming to even 4K streaming. I am one happy camper and this being my first nighthawk router. I happy I went this route.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best router I've owned I am a big gamer that have recently had a lot of trouble joining into online games whose servers were no where near me. The 'Geo-Filter' has helped immensely with this issue and has helped me join low ping games consistently. It has also helped with my own home network with its great customization in QoS locally and bandwidth management between devices on my network. I love this router and would recommend it to any gamer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speeds throughout the house I upgraded from a Linksys WRT AC1900s because my kids complained about lag and speeds in their bedrooms on the other side of the house. This router solved all their issues and gave them an extra 100 mbps download speeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic router This router by far is superior to my linksys router I had. Even though they were comparable in features my netgear router not only out performs it none of the 4 Xbox ones I have on my network are experiencing conflicts like they did with the linksys

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best router yet!! I have been having problems with are teenager staying up at all hours of the night gaming and god knows what else. This router has a device management feature that can block each computer individually. Are room is automated so turning the WiFi off was a crappy solution before. Now all I do access the router from my tablet and shut his tuff down without effecting the rest of the devices. It has a lot of other great features and amazing performance too!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely LOVE NetGear! Repeat customer. Bought XR500 Gaming router. It's more than enough, covers our internet needs, upstairs/downstairs, one end of the house to the other. Family of 4, each with iPhone, iPad, laptop, smart tv, blu-ray, never slows down.
