The NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1750 follows the same sleek design standards for all Nighthawk series. With Wi-Fi speeds recorded at 1750Mbps with 450Mbps speed on its 2.4GHz and 1300Mbps speed on its 5GHz band, deeming this router as fast is far from an exaggeration. The Netgear Nighthawk R7000 AC1900 is another great router for gamers but we won’t focus much on it in this Netgear Nighthawk AC1750 review.
It has external antennae which help spread good connectivity around the home or office space, and it has a 1GHz dual-processor which aids wired and wireless performances while its Beam-forming+ supports and fully optimize cell phone speeds.
Things to note about the Netgear Nighthawk AC1750:
The NETGEAR Nighthawk has a feature called Wi-Fi MultiMedia (WMM) that you can use for either the 2.4GHz or the 5GHz bands or both.
This feature gives priority to multimedia (video and audio) streams; the router is said to also optimize upstream internet traffic for activities such as gaming and then downstream traffic for others like video streaming. The Asus RT-AC88U delivers 5334Mbps for High-Performance Gaming (link takes you to the product page)
The enhanced QoS (Quality 0f Service) enables shorter buffer time and streams videos much faster.
You can use the USB 3.0 port as a replacement for a Network-Attached Storage (NAS).

What We Liked

What We Didn’t Like
It has unsatisfactory throughput speeds on the 2GHz band.
It slowly applies the changes made in settings.
The Bridge mode configuration is also inadequate.
Packed with some features like its high QoS full VPN and its attractive exterior design, the NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1750 has a lot going for it.
Although the slower than expected 2 GHz band and its frustrating bridge mode configuration could dampen the high spirits gotten from its other good qualities, its high-quality range, and throughput speeds would make this router an excellent addition to the home.
