Nramalho's review

rnilson2012, Ebay
7 January 2013
  • Summary: This product didn't work. But I think I know why, it is probably because it is missing some parts, like the antennas that are supposed lit up and gives wireless signals.

  • 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.

DOES NOT WORK!

CharlieCU, Amazon
26 December 2013
  • 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...

Terrible piece of hardware

Jim, Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: I've been an internet user since the late 90's and used a variety of ISP's and routers, this is by far the worse router i've had this misfortune to purchase.

TERRIBLE

DMFGS, Amazon
22 September 2012
  • Summary: I initially contacted Netgear to ask them to recommend a router with a stonger Wi fi signal than my current one. They recommended I purchase the DGN3500. I have always bought Netgear products in the past and this is my third or fourth modem router over the years.

Built in obsolescence

Fair Minded, Amazon
27 June 2012
  • Summary: The Netgear philosophy seems to be about maintaining cash-flow not operability. If the router stops working after 90 days you have the option to spend £90 pa for support who will tell you how to upgrade the firmware for instance.

loads of dropouts

ajg, Amazon
27 June 2012
  • Summary: don't bother getting this because there's a good chance you could end up with 10 - 15 dropouts a day like me. upgraded firmware, scanned for other networks with inssider and my changed channel, confirmed adsl settings with virgin but to no avail - after all that it was still rubbish...
