Best Router for Comcast – 2021 Reviews and Top Picks


4. Netgear AC1750 Smart Wi-Fi Router – Triple Antenna For Greater Range

The Netgear AC1750 Smart Wi-Fi Router is a popular product to use with Comcast. It is highly in demand because of its extended Wi-Fi range.

The router comes with a solid black body. Since it has three external antennas, its footprint is larger than routers with two antennas (11.22’’ at its widest). However, with the wall-mountable back design, you can just keep the router on a wall instead of letting it take space on your table.

There are eight LEDs on the top of the body which show the signal connections. The LED lights can be turned off, which is unique and basically a win for you if you get annoyed with the blinking router in your room, while trying to sleep at night.

The unboxing and setting up of the router is pretty simple. In fact, it takes less than a few minutes to get it running once it is unpacked and plugged in. You can configure the router by connecting it to your computer. However, if you do not have access to a computer or are not comfortable using it, the native Netgear app called Genie allows you to configure the router and manage your network through a phone.

The app is free to download so there are no additional costs of using it. The app interface is well designed and everything is clear to comprehend through a list of buttons in the menu. You can make use of the app through, both, the iOs and the android systems.

The AC1750 has dual band capabilities, allowing a parallel transmission of signals at 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz frequencies. The 5Ghz is a better developed and faster frequency, as it experiences less disruption and fewer disconnects. However, the 2.4 GHz has a greater range in general. The 2.4 GHz is also the more popular frequency if you’re wanting to connect your router with your mouse, microwave or phones.

The router’s Wi-Fi range is quite exceptional. You would have to go several hundred meters away before you are going to notice a drop in your signals. This means that it can easily cover the average homes completely.

If you are living in a shared home or a small home with little space on your table, then the router can be a burden for you to keep properly due to its large size.
