Summary: I dunno, maybe I got lucky. Bought it to flash to 3rd party firmware, but stock firmware was intuitive and easy to configure and I've had excellent stability with mine. It's been up since July 2013, I've had to reboot it maybe 5-6 times since I first plugged it in.
Summary: I also had read all the negative reviews, about the problem plagued installs, troublesome complicated setup issues, extremely slow speeds and poor performance all around so I was prepared for a challenge but also curious to see how what sounded on paper like a terrific product in print could be so...
Summary: I have to say Those people who have written bad review have a right to before the last software release. But with that said I spent 15 min with the router, i bough a used one with a bad firmware flash and was able to reset it.
Summary: Ok, so your sitting there connected to slow wifi or no wifi at all and your reading this. Your wondering if this is a good buy. Let me tell you something, the price is amazing-- the Top or Nearest to top Netgear is around $125-150. This is worth the money

Summary: First of all, I wanted to mention that I have dealt with BlueProton and Web's Best Deals. I would not purchase from BlueProton again because they charge a restocking fee and did not give me my refund automatically. Web's Best Deals had the lower price and better return policy so I bought from them.

Summary: I bought mine from DirectDeals4U and got a sealed, new router delivered a few days later. I never even tried to use it with the firmware that comes installed but immediately installed dd-wrt and then tomato. The instructions are out there - just google "tomato F7D7301".
