R8000

Looks like the R8000 is out. A little disappointed that it uses the same 1GHz dual processor.

Sorry, I was thinking faster processor = faster routing.

Should've purchased at Best Buy and got the Geek Squad protection plan. They let you return it no questions asked for store credit (aka a r8000).

Re: R8000

Can you guys just imagine that the firmware upgrades to the R7000 this far along are still not rock solid, yet Netgear comes out with another flagship router that surely is destined for the same thing? Do you think the just use the r7000's firmware & run with it? It's not the same router, i can't be that easy, right?

Re: R8000

that's why I waited 9 years to replace my dir-655 with this router 6-8 mths after its release lol So my question(s) to the OP is rhetorical I guess. Enjoy dealing with whatever issues may pop up that need fixing if you pursue a router that basically has an added 5g band that is still in its infancy as far as range and stability goes. I'm good with running two R7000's. and it seems the bridge mode issues are fixed with the latest firmware, let alone King & Shibby's work.

Re: R8000

There's really no use in waiting a few months anymore. Manufacturers in general are turning out new product so fast that 6-8 months might leave you 2 or 3 revisions behind.

You're best bet is to either jump in with both feet at the current point in time and not worry about obsolescence, or go out and buy something REALLY mature, like say an N900 router.

Re: R8000

Only the consumer buys the the latest greatest in some level. Look at all the rest of fortune 500 and retailer business etc . They are definitely are not buy latest great but mature.

One these day I would buy 802.11ac router but I'm quite happy with my Prosescure router and open mesh AP (802.11n). Solid network without failing... 🙂

Re: R8000 - New does not equate to better . . .

My network is populated by some solid performance consumer routers that have not let me down. Recently I purchased three, what I call backup routers, off eBay: Two WNDR3700v1 and a WNDR3400v2, total cost for all three, less than $50.00 including shipping. Combined with backup configuration files, should a failure occur among my active routers I can be up and running within minutes . . .

Re: R8000 - New does not equate to better . . .

I'm on a 3700v1 as we speak. I have it connected to a NETGEAR powerline and use it as an access point for my deck area outdoors. I just installed dd-wrt for fun and it's working really well. I like the virtual access support in dd-wrt. Can't go wrong with the 3700. Great router.

Who did you buy your 3700s from?

Search eBay for WNDR3700. Bought one for $10.50 . . . In my book that's a great deal 🙂

Installed DD-WRT on everything . . .

The key to getting a great deal on eBay is ‘Bidding’ at the last possible second an item is up for auction . . . 😉

Re: R8000

I would also remind you that over 80% of ebay purchasing the router has been a lots of issues for users.

I don't think most seller would not check and double check these used units and seems to have higher failure rate. I know I sell used routers and networking equipment and has not issues but some to think over the hassle of saving some money. 🙂

You are absolutely right . . . Buying on eBay is a gamble, and you are rolling the dice. But as long as you realize you can lose, and don't wager more than you can afford, eBay can be very rewarding 😉
