AWFUL product and worse customer service!!!

ohawk714, Ebay

  • 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.

Router has WiFi bug! Avoid.

  • Summary: After a lot of looking for a premium router, I choose the Netgear 3800 series as it offered all of the features I could ever want. Unfortunately the router has either a hardware or firmware bug (which is well documented by many people on Netgear's product forum) which causes the WiFi to stop working for many devices - the only way to recover is to reboot the router. As the issue occurs almost daily, it's far from ideal.

Oh dear...

Andrew "arbaxter47", Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this to eliminate dead zones in the kitchen and upstairs back bedroom but signal no better than my existing 54mbps Belkin g-rated router. On top of that, the wireless connection was very flakey and kept dropping out no matter how strong the signal. The configuration set up was also irritatingly slow. Thankfully, I could return it for a refund.

Firmware bugs and continental plugs

alpew, Amazon
28 November 2011
  • Summary: Ordered this item from Avides. However, what is not clear is that the company is German based and they only supply the unit with continental style plugs, not the UK one. As the Netgear router plug incorporates the transformer you can't cut it off and replace with a UK plug! I complained and the only response I received was a refund or a supply of a continental to Uk adaptor which I am still waiting for.
