  1. I would be stoked to win this! My poor Netgear router is on it’s last leg (but it has lasted for several years). I have been researching them like crazy but there is so much info out there. This article really helps!

  2. Oh, I’d love to be your lucky winner! My spouse works from home, and I spend a lot of time on the net, so between the two of us, having good, fast wifi is really important. I’d love to be able to upgrade us to this awesome router! Thanks.

  3. My Router is getting old and I know I will need a new one soon and were always on our lap tops so its important to have a good one.

  4. I want to update my qwest internet combo modem/router it just cant handle multiple devices and slow internet. New nighthawk would make streaming so much better.

  5. I have a NETGEAR router; however it is a bit dated and no longer meets the needs of my households WiFi consumption. This would be awesome!!

  6. I have a (dated) NETGEAR router but it doesn’t provide the power that my house needs these days. This would be amazing!

  7. I work at home, and connecting to my internet from my desk is a huge pain. A new router is VERY high on my list of priorities.

  8. I would love to win this as my router is old and a new faster one would help me with work with faster uploads/downloads.

  9. I want to win this because we have been wanting to get a new one for a while. Tried of the family complaining about WiFi

  10. I need a router that can cover my whole house, from basement to second floor. This looks like it could fit the bill.

  11. we could really use this with our slow Internet and multiple devices. Things are really crawling with what we have now. This is great!

  12. We are living on Doug’s disability check and cannot afford a new router. Having multiple bands would allow us to have better coverage in our home and more ethernet ports would allow more direct connections. Many thanks to iMums and NETGEAR for this incredible giveaway!

  13. This would be an answer to a prayer. I would love to win it to give to my sister. She’s tech challenged and has rented a router/moden from the cable company for 3 years. They keep going up on the monthly charges and this would be a godsend to help her save $$$ as she is trying to catch up her enormous hospital bills. Thank you so very much for the awesome opportunity!
