solid for 5 years

Norman Cutter "alyosha10", Amazon
22 February 2013
  • Summary: This router was rock solid for us for 5 years in our business,..with about 10 computers on a network plus 3 more wireless 'guests',.. I recommend putting this and your modem on a UPS, so you don't have reconnect headaches every time there's a power glitch. It still works great,.

Not reliable at all

Panagion, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought it as part of our business network solution, and this is the only part that fails every day or two. Every now and then the router freezes up and resetting itself, resulting loss of company website, remote access, email, etc, and takes about 10 minutes to come back to itself.

This is a great unit

Frank IT, Amazon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: Stay away from this one and get the FVS318N instead. This has known issues giving out duplicate IP addresses. When this happens it takes down the entire network instead of just the two systems with the same IP. I bought a second one thinking the first one was bad.

sucks

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 July 2012
  • Summary: It's not that the router sucks - the router works fine. But this is a >VPN< router with ZERO netgear support for VPN. You cannot find the VPN client software on the website - it's a dead link. After locating the client software there's no serial number or "buy" option - it's a dead link.

Update your Firmware!!!

T. Grenell "kyferez", Amazon
4 April 2012
  • Summary: These devices are great for the money, IF you have the latest firmware. Update to v2.1.2.67 and the issues with connectivity will be resolved (assuming you configure the device and other network devices correctly).

unsable

Adam C. Grace "adam972", Amazon
1 December 2011
  • Summary: before I start- let me say that all other componets of my home network are working 100%. This router resets the WAN connection every 30mins to an hour making it worthless to have a VPN connection to my office. Bottom line- worthless to me.

Firmware apparently (and desperately) needs an update

Sam Glover, Amazon
14 November 2011
  • Summary: This router worked for a few months, then started crashing every few minutes, losing its configuration every time. From the other reviews, it looks like this is a common problem that Netgear refuses to address.

Randomly stops NAT routing

Simon Moorhead, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: Initially the product worked well. The setup was fairly straightforward as far as routers go, and it increased my bandwidth by over 4MBS. It also allowed my multitude of network equipment to operate as plug and play without specifically opening obscure ports.
