Works with CM2000 but not CM600

3 out of 5 rating

Glen Cushman · 8 days ago

The instructions in the app were clear enough and easy to follow, but I first installed my new AX6 (RAX50) router with my existing Netgear CM600 cable modem and had major issues--couldn't get a wireless connection on any of several devices. This was very frustrating. Replaced the CM600 with a Netgear Nighthawk CM2000 cable modem and everything worked fine the first time.

Great Router

We purchased the Nighthawk so we would have a strong router for our cameras, Wi-Fi, etc. This router was simple to set up and has been working very well for us and our needs.
