[Amazon.ca] NETGEAR R6120-100CN wifi router up to 1200 Mbps Up to 1200 sq ft Coverage & 20 Devices

Was looking for a cheap option for my mom and found this budget router on amazon, seems to be pretty decent. Most of the 1 star review seems to be people who have a lot of trouble setting it up through online process, which I think most of us won't mind. NETGEAR R6120-100CN for 49.99 from 69.99, cheapest on CCC.

Edit- Ya, this is budget so no Gigabit Ethernet Port

No gigabit Ethernet port. That's unfortunate...

Just so people are aware, these 1200sqft or any coverage numbers mean uninterrupted equal plane coverage where there are no walls and large furniture to block the signal.

This router is no good for anyone who lives in a larger condo than 1000sqft, and even then it's pushing its limits.

If you have a 2-storey house or larger, with a sqft of >1500sqft you need to severely overkill and get much much bigger routers rated for >3000sqft to get adequate coverage.

I don't think this is very accurate. I'm currently using a n66u, and it is rated for 450 foot.... Yet I still have wifi down in the basement, while my router is on the top floor. My house is around 2400 sqft.

While the signal is not the best in the basement, it still works. This thing is close to triple the rating of the n68u, so I'm sure it will be more than enough.

The 10/100 port is applicable to the internet port, which makes this kinda meh.

I did buy it this weekend, but not having 1000 port is kinda ridiculous in 2020.

if u live in a house, on a budget, getting a used Asus ac66u B1 would be a better option. Antennas/coverage is solid. Also you can add more asus routers as budget allows to run in mesh. they're good up to gigabit internet so a solid long term investment.
