[Walmart] Netgear R7000 AC1900 gaming router Clearance $79. Reg $199.99

I already own 1, great router, custom firmware makes it better.
its been around for many years, i run older .42 stock firmware as its the most stable.
I bridged modem with 2nd ip, so i run 2 routers. my other is Asus wifi6
not bad deal if you want to run a 2nd router

Oof, I like my R7000s, but no way would I pay that much for them anymore. The AX units that are out at around this price are far more worth it.

I saw one at $79 at one of my local walmart last week, but I skipped on it since i already got plans to go AX mesh on my next major overhaul upgrade... but that would only happen if my current equipment start to fail.



But if you don't have the internet speed, nor do you have a large residence that requires a mesh coverage, then this is actually a pretty darn good stable router. Id get this if im gonna be setting up a new network in a condo/apartment with a lot of wireless devices i want to connect to

Very true, about the price and new technology, but those who really knows about the r7000... rock solid gaming!!
I am using Asus AX6000 now, I left all my smart products on the r7000 network and moved everything else to my ax6000.
bridged modem, 2 routers- AX6000, R7000... best of both worlds!

How can a router improve gaming? Isnt ping determined by location and not hardware?

im not going to downvote it, i'll upvote it, since it's a very good price for a solid stable router with plenty of power to connect to multiple devices. *huge plus on the stable part*

I just outright do not have a need for it else i would get it.

I had my r7000 for many years, it managed my 50+ smart devices very well over the years and forgot to mention 4 gaming desktops. now running a wifi 6 router on 2nd ip network.
I can expand even more. yes its very stable. not sure how stable the new low end wifi6 routers are, but my ax6000 Rocks!

rock solid r7000 for $79. VS new wifi6 lowend for $99. unknown stabilty.

I am not a network specialist, but the provided wifi modems i got from shaw is pure garbage,
years ago i had nothing but problems, ping spikes, lag, smart devices loosing wifi, you name it.
at the time i got so fed up. so i upgraded to the r7000. it solved all my problems, it has better management.
I think at the time the r7000 costed over $300. you could probably get away with a low end ax wifi6 for around $99. my asus ax6000 costed me around $400.
I just liked the r7000 because at the time, i knew it was a rock solid powerhouse!

Many walmart stores had r7000 on clearance last year, then those stores never restocked r7000. I got 1 for $49. Those should be the last batch. If you find a r7000 in local walmart, wait for some time and keep on checking the price, probably it will go back to $49. It's still a very good router for daily use, just lack of some fancy functions.

You want network stability on your wifi if you're gaming over a wifi network, if your wifi is erractic with constant up and down, you're in for a bad time.

I know alot of peeson around here are on Asus Router...

This R7000 can be flashed with Asus firmware and used as AI-Mesh Node.

I have my R7000 flashed with asus firmware running as a Media Bridge allowing 400 Mbits in my home office. My office is far from the ac86u... So it's way faster that way.

Damn RFDers, my location said they had 5. By time I got there the clerk said he was surprised that there was so much demand. Walked away with 0 router.

Yes.

If you're technically inclined,
You can install FreshTomato third party firmware.

I have not used it in a long while due to ASUS cracking down
but
As grisensko already mentioned,
You can also try Xwrt-Vortex firmware.
