Netgear Ac1200 Smart Wi-Fi Router (R6220) Review

Everyone hates slow streaming. When more than one wireless device is connected to the same router, the only way to enjoy great quality streaming is to have a strong wifi-router that is able to facilitate multiple wireless clients in a home without making the internet speed come to a standstill. For this very reason, in this week’s blog, we will be talking about one such smart Wi-Fi router manufactured by NETGEAR. It is time to present the NETGEAR AC1200 review.


As for the design, the Wi-Fi router comes with a black exterior with patterned vents, two 5.3-inch extendable antennas that can be positioned according to your desire, 9 LED lights, a single USB port, and 5 Ethernet ports (4 for LAN and 1 for WAN). Its 1.6 x 9.4 x 7.2-inch frame ensures that it can be placed anywhere in your home.


The list below takes a look at the router’s specifications:

Wi-Fi Technology: 802.11ac Dual Band Gigabit

Wi-Fi Performance: (300+867 Mbps speeds)

Processor: 880MHz processor

Wi-Fi Band: Simultaneous dual-band 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz

Wi-Fi Range: 125 feet, ideal for homes with 8+ Wi-Fi devices

Connectivity: Dual-band Wi-Fi devices like iPad® /iPhone5®

Memory: 128 MB flash memory and 128 MB RAM

Number of Ethernet Ports: 5 (1 WAN and 4 LAN) with auto-sensing technology

The setup too is fairly simple. All one has to do is connect the device to a broadband modem and later, configure it via a PC. A generic username and password have been assigned to the device which the user will have to type in before starting the setup. The password and username can be changed later on to maximize security. Once the user logs in, he/she will be directed to the Internet Setup Wizard which will further guide them on how to complete the setup process and start availing the benefits of high-speed internet in less than 5 minutes.

Final Verdict:

With that, it is time for the final verdict. If one looks at the specifications it comes and the pricing that the manufacturer has set, it seems like a wise choice to invest in it. It is ideal for homes that are looking for that additional speed when multiple wireless devices are sucking up all the internet. Its USB port allows for easy configuration of hard drives and printers, and its easy Genie Wizard facilitates you to view and make any change you wish to make.
