Summary: I have been using this as a wireless/wired hub and ADSL router and the performance for this function has been good. However, I also specifically purchased this device for the ReadySHARE capability, and whilst this has worked most of the time it has caused expensive damage and data loss to 3...
Summary: I've had two of these now, and had to return both as faulty. On the first occasion the unit was working fine, but after 30 days, just powered off, and then would not power back on at all, even after hitting the reset button.
Summary: There is a 'KNOWN' issue with these routers, when you connect a USB hard drive to the unit, any hardwired devices are thrown off the network. The latest revision of Firmware 'x.x.x..76' does not cure it!
Summary: Tried 2 of these which were returned to Amazon (well done Amazon !) Could not access the configuration GUI from 3 hard wired devices even though they would ping it successfully. Netgear genie is a real wizard - never appeared !! Even 3 hours with Netgear support couldn't get a result.
Summary: At the time of writing I had just forked out a whopping £145 for this router and it only supports the PAY to use DNS service called DynDNS. I guess Netgear are getting a backhander to not allow the wider ranger of providers I am used to seeing on cheaper router(some free shock horror).
Summary: Worst router ever. Continually drops ADSL connection while viewing pages on the internet. I have to power down the router & power up to reboot. Takes about a minute before back online. There has been 2 firmware upgrades but they have not helped.
Summary: I bought this router to have an all singing all dancing box an upgrade from my BT router. This is not the solution! It drops out all the time, printing is an issue and the 5G is a waste of space no range at all. I cannot recommend this product.
Summary: This product fails on my PPPOA LLC 1/50 ADSL2+ connection. Sometimes it connects, sometimes it doesn't. When it connects, it fails to forward DNS details and attached devices can't access the internet
