Summary: I needed to install a wireless router to enable smartphone usage for the first time. When one lives in a rural community ease of use is important. The Neatgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router has worked fine since recent installation. The instructions were easy to follow. That alone is very important for a Senior Citizen!
Summary: No complicated instructions needed to set up a secure Wifi network. The default is with password provided and unique network key. Have not try to change the provided network name and key yet but may do so. Works well so far.
Great router, fantastic reliability, many features, USB could be faster

Summary: This is an excellent router with almost all the features I come to expect from a modern dual-band router. It comes with a 2.4GHz band for pretty much every Wi-Fi enabled device available, but it also comes with a 5GHz band for higher-end devices, such as new smart phones and my computer. The faster frequency reduces latency and increases actual internet speed, albeit a small amount.
Summary: My old Netgear router was shutting down at times and I had read that routers eventually "wear out". I liked the Netgear system for setting up a Home wireless Network better than another brand of router I had before the Netgear router. I bought this router because the price was very good for a two band router(Refurbished), and had all the updated features I was looking for. As it turned out the setting up of the wireless network was so unbelievably easy it amazed me.
