Summary: I purchased this router because of good reviews and initially the router worked great then on day 92 (had 90 day warranty) the router range dropped to less than 10 feet. Netgear told me to update the firmware and it quit working totally!! They FINALLY agreed after much talking to replace my router, which all they did was to send me a refurb router.
"Horrible wireless range. Max wireless range is 25'."
8 June 2013
Pros: Worked "OK" for about a year. Free support for 90 days.
Cons: I upgraded to this to get better wireless range. No improvement. After 1 yr, it has lost 50% wireless range. I've gone through all the troubleshooting tips. Live support, you need to pay a premium after 90 days.
Pros: dual band-but most devices can't use higher speed wall mountable-because big to keep on desktop 1 yr warranty-but only 90 days tech support then must pay $45 for tech support to determine if eligible under warranty
Cons: 6 mo life expectancy (based on 2 routers I have had) specs on speed misleading: 600 mpbs is 300mpbs per band and only some iphones/pads can connect (my iphone 4 only picks up lower band. worst tech support ever!
Pros: WNDR3700 WORKED FINE FOR 19 MONTHS... The newer WNDR3800 is NOT warranted beyond one year.
Cons: WNDR3700 stopped broadcasting on 2.4Ghz band one night beyond 5-ft. The 3700 was past the 1-yr warranty by 7-months. After a polite exchange of troubleshooting, Netgear confirmed the unit as faulty, but since out of warranty, nothing they would do.
Pros: There really are none... you can plug it in but you can't make it work.
Cons: All routers should be designed to function on a routine daily basis. The router rarely lasts a day without dropping not and has extremely poor range as an added bonus. Changing channels, etc doesn't help...
