Summary: When buying this item make sure to buy it new. Mine was a refurbished model and I had to get Netgear to get it set it up with new software and I had to buy a 6 month contract which cost me an additional $80.00. I will not buy any item that is refurbished again unless it comes from the manufacture.
Summary: This is a really awful product. I've used several routers/access points over the years, also many netgear units, and this is the worst of all. It just does not work. Many users reported adsl disconnections; I've not experienced this problem but the wifi connection is very unstable, devices randomly...
Summary: Hello, I purchased a DGN3500 as I wanted an integrated ADSL modem and wireless N router. I read some negative reviews, but decided to buy one anyway as I've had good experience with Netgear products in the past.
Summary: Bought this to replace my Netgear DG834Nv1 which was starting to have trouble with wireless. I've used netgear for years and have become increasingly less impressed with each router. My DG834Nv1 has its quirks but at least it can maintain an ADSL connection for more than a few hours.
strong signal, but poor support and possible issues

Summary: 1 year later i must update. I have to say this router is utter tosh, i have afew routers much cheaper ones and this netgear 3500 always fails consistantly every week,whereas the others do not.
