DO NOT USE READYSHARE CAPABILITY - HDD DAMAGE!!

Simon, Amazon
13 August 2014
  • 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...

Dead after two and a half months

Calico, Amazon
12 July 2014
  • Summary: I changed my ISP who provided me with a preconfigured Technicolor router. It seemed to lag and the range was poor so I decided to splash out on something really good. Was I mistaken - yes.

Second unit failed after five days operation

Alpineash, Amazon
20 May 2014
  • 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.

BE WARNED

I Parsons "IMP", Amazon
12 May 2014
  • 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!

At best a bad batch at worst utter rubbish

Ian Robinson, Amazon
15 November 2013
  • 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.

Only supports a pay to use DNS service

Rueben, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • 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).

Continually drops ADSL connection

G Q McDowell, Amazon
23 October 2013
  • 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.

Not a good router!

Tim Anderson, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • 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.
