Summary: STAY AWAY from this model and NetGear altogether. Their service is awful and their products are even worse.
Pros: none. this thing never worked properly.
Cons: never worked properly. netgear did what they could to support it over the phone and ultimately decided to replace it. tried to charge me for extended warranty on something which never worked properly. cuts in and out. I've been trying to use it for home office. when wifey hits it with her laptop ...
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,.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I fought Videotron to have their broadband router replaced thinking that was the issue. Upgraded the firmware to version 220.127.116.11. Finally discovered that even with the most basic settings the wireless portion wouldn't hold the connection. So I put my older WT102 and the RT314 back into service.
Pros: Nice pretty box.
Cons: Worked for about two weeks intermittently. When it works, it works but doesn't last with heavy traffic.
