Summary: I use Windows Home Server 2011 and it's Remote Web Access function. I previously used the ADSL version of this router (DGN2200) which is possibly the best router I have ever used. Together, they worked in harmony to enable the WHS Remote Web Access service via UPnP on the router. I recently upgraded to BT Infinity fibre broadband and the DGN2200 can no longer be used.
Summary: My old cable router, another 8 year old veteran started to die and decided to get another. This was simplicity itself to install and within 30 minutes I had my laptop, tablet, Freeview PVR and Sony Blue Ray DVD player connected and running (the latter two are wired). After accessing the latest firmware was loaded and installed. The Netgear Genie software is superb and has pretty much all the tools you will ever need.
Summary: I was needlessly nervous about setting up wireless having had nightmares with older routers in the early wifi days and having only basic technical knowledge but this was a breeze - virtually plug and play meant I was up and running within a few minutes without having to use a cd.
Summary: I had to return this item as I had ordered the wrong thing, my fault entirely, so in all fairness I cannot review the item as I did not use it. But I can comment on the service I received from the company Soteluk, who sent the router. They are based in Germany, and they are amonst the most efficient people I have ever dealt with. From their receipt of my order until I had it in my hands was 2 days. Brilliant.
Summary: Initial setup was easy....you go to routerlogin.net and netgear have revamped the layout making it quick to access security settings and parental controls etc. The connection is good..my inet has always been fast and this router doesn't slow it down. Not the best when it comes to multiple devices using the internet simultaneously for demanding tasks but its good value for money.
Summary: I bought this to replace an ancient Linksys router. The coverage is average (slightly worse than my older router) and I had to manually reduce the Mbps from 300 to 150 to stop it crashing when accessed by multiple devices. Also, don't buy it for the parental controls - they just don't work at all! Pretty unimpressive, really.
