Keeps dropping internet connection

M. Manjunath, Amazon
20 July 2013
  • Summary: It worked fine for about 4 months. Then it keeps dropping wireless internet connection almost once or twice every day. I have to reboot the router every time it happens. I regret buying this. There is no telephone customer service for Netgear. If I report a problem via internet, they will send me an email that contains all archaic information that does not help a bit.

Poor quality

Richard D. Beacham, Amazon
19 July 2013
  • Summary: At first this router worked great then it began giving us trouble. It would lose connection to the internet. We are a childcare center and as such we use a software that is required to be connected to the internet at all times to be connected to the server to interface as well as check in and out employees as well as children.(not really happy about this but it is what it is).

Poor connection realiability

Jim S "Col.", Amazon
13 March 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this router to replace my "old" Linksys WRT54G router as I had added several more IP cameras and wanted the added bandwidth. But after using this router for several weeks, and updating the fireware I have to report this router is nothing short of junk! I was not able to access my cameras, or if they did link up, they would not refresh, therefore I would not be able to see current images.

Bad product, Bad customer service

Marge Stewart, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: This product would not work properly with my Mac, which the description claimed it would. The company also advertises FREE 90 day tech support. When I couldn't get the router to connect properly, I called tech support. I was routed to a rep outside the US who could not speak understandable English. When we discussed the problems with connection, the rep said he could provide tech support to get it connected for a "small" fee.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

MauEcu, Amazon
6 February 2012
  • Summary: the Netgear N750 wireless signal started dropping out a couple days ago. Sometimes it's strong, sometimes it's weak. The signal bars go up and down like crazy, even when my laptop is right next to the router. Also the signal is now extremely weak. even my old router had a stronger signal The worst part is that I bought this while in the US and now I can't even return it because I am in South America.

Awful enough to be recalled. should have read reviews.

Alan F. Grimes "ATG", Amazon
25 November 2011
  • Summary: If this product actually worked, it would be the cat's A$$ (awesome). But it doesn't. I tried one, it crashed several times, I exchanged it and the replacement crashed several times. It would start failing only a few hours after starting up and would never stay up more than three days straight. Other reviewers prove that there is certainly a hardware defect that causes it to burn out within 3 months.

Unstable router

Linda Wojciechowski "photo_wizard", Amazon
25 November 2011
  • Summary: I had purchased this router based upon the many reviews both here and from PCMag. After several issues getting it set up, I eventually returned the unit. The unit continued to drop the internet connections multiple times a day and required multiple reboots. I had upgraded the software to the latest version, but it did not resolve the issues.

Bad hardware from NETGEAR...

Tim, Amazon
25 November 2011
  • Summary: This is great on a spec sheet, but in actuality, it's a piece of crap. My router's wifi would be inexplicably intermittent at times, particularly the 5ghz channel, and sometimes vanish completely. A reboot would be required to get it back on track. The range is not far at all, my old wireless-G could go just as far, if not farther and with a more steady connection. But by far, my biggest complaint is that the unit DIED after using it for 3 months.

WiFi Very Unstable

Gamer "Gamer", Amazon
14 August 2011
  • Summary: Wired connections work very well, but wireless will disconnect almost daily and then not reconnect until you reset the router. After that your computer/video equipment may connect, but then not get access to the Internet. Search the Internet for posting during the last 1-2 months and you will see that this is a very common issue and NETGEAR has not been able to fix it so people are switching to Linksys list the E4200.
