                  View On Amazon!

This one is from Net Gear and made especially for gaming and multitasking. It is on our list due to its reliability and amazing features that will never fail to impress you. Extremely beautiful in shape, thunderous in performance, the new Time Machine feature, Beam forming and all else makes it another wonderful pick for gaming and streaming. It’s small and handy, thin and sleek design is a major turn on. Easy to carry around and installed anywhere in the house. It is powered by a dual-core processor of 1GHz making it the fastest device from the company. And the fastest in the market allowing all your online gaming and streaming to run perfectly smooth.

It comes with a built-in VPN server that is the first we have seen from NetGear and is very useful for business. The other brilliant new feature is that the NightHawk R7000 supports the Time Machine backup, something we haven’t seen in routers earlier. For backup, it also comes with the new software ReadyShare Vault. If any information or data is stored on the connected hardware, it can stream to connected devices. It scans the connected drive automatically and makes the information available.

Digital content can also share with other connected devices from any device through the NetGear genie app for mobile. This app also lets you make and change settings on your network but can only be accessed if you are connected to the internet through this router. For any other means of the internet, it will not run.

Whats More In this Router:

It has a long wifi range with its three antennas at an average of 15 feet but the range can increase in a setting which will reduce the speed. On the 5GHz band, the speed of the router is 431 Mbps which is a very fast speed and beats many other devices in the competition. On the 2.4GHz band, it provides a maximum of 600 Mbps instead of 450 Mbps. It comes with two USB ports, a 2.0 port on the back and a 3.0 port in the front (which will give a little awkward look).

The new Quality of Service feature brings the setting of managing your upstream and downstream. Although there are more options for the upstream management. The parental control features are free if you have an account of Open DNS with which you can download the NetGear Parental Controls app. The OpenDNS also allows you to choose between the five different levels of Web Filtering for blocking traffic.

It comes with four LAN ports, like the usual.It supports all wireless protocols 802.11a/b/g/n/a. Additional features include Apple Time Machine compatible, DoS attack prevention, firewall protection, parental control, FTP server, IPv6 support, NAT support, Quality of Service (QoS), ReadySHARE, Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), VPN support, Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS).
