Easy to set up
I bought this Dual Band Wifi Router from my local officeworks when I have my NBN installed. It's easily set up. I couldn't set up by myself so I called the NBN service provider and the told me to press the reset button, and only 5 minutes it's connected, and works quite well and reliable for months. It's quite reliable, the WIFI is available at all bedrooms, although I have it set up in the study room. All devices at home including TV, tablets, cell phones can access the WIFI at the same time without any problem. The price is resonable, happy about this product.

Fairly good budget router with minor issues
Its a cheap and fairly reliable little router, has a WAN input compatible with the typical NBN-supplied modems. Signal strength is always a subjective judgement, but it doesn't seem awesome: no worse than you'd expect but certainly no better (bandwidth for me is fine in the same room and drops off a fair bit in the next room - through double brick).
One negative is the setup - Netgear have decided this is best done via an app. The previous approach of just connecting to a router's local admin interface which has worked fine for decades has been...

Complicated to set up

Know better, choose better.
This is my second one (first one had to be exchanged), am using it with a satellite connection and it does seem to drop in and out quite regularly sadly. But still provides a signal.

It appears to be extremely good value for money but
The touted saving of energy through turning off the wifi may not be achieved due to defective software. Most notably the limited drop-down selection of times lacks 24:00 so that turning off overnight is not possible. Isn’t this the most likely scenario?
Scheduling is further compromised by lack of control of the clock/time zone. For example; on satellite your timezone can be different from the ISP. You may have to offset a schedule and readjust every six months for summertime!
This highlights the dubious value of this facility. Using a timer...
Questions & Answers
is netgear ac750 model no R6020 nbn ready ??????
Yes and no. It is definitely compatible with most NBN modems - you can connect the NBN modem to the Netgear WAN port, configure the router for PPPoE with your given password and it works fine. I say no because some people think "NBN ready" means you can directly connect NBN without a modem for a single device solution, but thats not the case.
i received the netgear router without the QR code is the product is genuine?
