What customers say about "Key Specs"
Linksys AC1900 (CG7500) High Speed DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router
  • Love having my own WiFi modem so I don't have to pay fees associated with renting one from the cable company. Has been a seamless switch and haven't had any issues with the performance.
  • We have Spectrum Cable internet and over 6 devices connected (TV, DVR, PS4, computers and smartphones). Works great with our internet provider and devices.
  • Getting 2x+ the download speed. I"m pretty sure I'm only paying for 25Mb/s download but am getting closer to 60Mb/s
  • The major problem was the number of times my internet went down -- something that virtually never happened in all my years using my prior Comcast router/modems.
  • It didn't work. The service plan is 100MBPS, The speeds it showed with wired 70MBPS and wireless 52 MBPS also my HTC phone keeps dropping when I connect to this wifi network. waste of time
  • Constantly disconnects and you can't manually update the firmware. Don't waste your money.
NETGEAR AC1750 (C6300) DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router
  • Works great and is fast as intended for DOCSIS 3.0
  • Needed to replace my router to the 3.0 Docsis. This a stronger router and works great.
  • Really good streaming and really fast Internet speeds
  • I had a little trouble getting it setup with Comcast, but after a call to Comcast and some work on their part it's working great. I have Comcast's fastest internet 105 mbps and consistently get 105 to 120 mbps.
  • Absolutely great speed from this. Only thing is the range is only about half what it advertises.
  • Not very happy about this product. The salesman at best buy said this was a fast router for what electronics I had in my home. But if I have three tvs on one of them is slow or it won't load.

What customers say about "Ports"
Linksys AC1900 (CG7500) High Speed DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router
  • It works with all the major cable companies.
  • It has four ethernet LAN ports to attach wired devices. Our prior main router, an AirPort Express, only has one output ethernet port.
  • This product is also a potential NAS box (!) - connect a hard drive via the device's USB port, and POOF!, it's a network drive.
  • The Linksys High Speed DOCSIS 3.0 24x8 AC1900 Cable Modem Router comes with extra ethernet ports, as well. High performance at a decent price.
  • USB port is 2.0 not 3.0 so minus one star. In actual use my connected devices performed great as you'd expect from Linksys' proven router implementations.
NETGEAR AC1750 (C6300) DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router
  • This is a great product, with plenty of ports and speedy access. Love it!
  • This was great choice for time warner service to have a built in WiFi device and multiple router ports.
  • The WiFi works exceptionally well. Easy to set up and manage. The extra Ethernet ports were vitalcto my network this product delivers.
  • We are not happy with this unit !! you can't use it with Xfinity phone because there no port to plug it in. And it looks like there is way around it..?
  • Attractive and great performance. Only con is that it has a USB 2.0 and not a USB 3.0 port.

What customers say about "Features"
Linksys AC1900 (CG7500) High Speed DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router
  • I did bridge 2.4 and 5 ghz. I have 4 IOS, 2 windows and 1 android device and they all connect and stay connected with no issues.
  • I've had this router installed about a month now.. easy install, solid performance, and it runs circles around the Cable Co provided Modem / WAP device.
  • I’ve had steady signals both ether and WiFi with no drops in speed. For the price I paid and what I’ll save from CC ripping me off I’m happy.
  • Setup was easy and it came with directions to register with Comcast cable.
  • This new Linksys eliminates having to use a Wi-Fi modem and a router. If you have cable internet service with high speed internet, this is the machine for you. You can turn in your provider's equipment and not pay rental fees. You can get speeds up to 1.9gb on Wi-Fi.
  • I would like to see a better user interface, and a little more 'advanced' capabilities in it. Other than that? Solid device!
  • When I first bought it, it ran great. Then started getting random drop offs from the network with certain devices, the 2.4 or 5ghz would just disappear, range was very bad in the 5ghz band.
NETGEAR AC1750 (C6300) DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router
  • Highly recommend...great coverage with multiple channels.
  • Extremely fast. Easy to set up. Like the two channel option.
  • Combo modem wifi router. Excellent product. Super fast with 16 channels to get full benefits of TWC blast Internet. Careful with 8 channel modems as they may not be compatible with the internet providers top speeds
  • Fast very fast. It was easy to get online was TWC was contacted. The push button to connect to phones and DVD players makes it easy.
  • One best thing besides being fast with any device connected to it and very easy to install the modem has a power button.
  • Works well but doesn't have a WPS button or Mac ID label.
