I have loved my R7000 for 3 years until recently I started having wireless issues. I thought upgrading to a R8000 was a no brainer but it lasted 2 days before I took that piece of junk back to Best Buy for a refund. The range was horrible compared to my R7000. On 5G I was down to 1 Mbps in my kitchen which is about 20 feet from the router. Outside my house I could get neither band whereas with the R7000 I had coverage all around the outside of my house.
