Excerpt: Large and good looking but expensive replacement for an older Thomson. The Netgear's Interface is more intuitive and WiFi coverage slightly better. It is also ready should I take up 'Fibre' which is currently being rolled out in this area.
Summary: This review is based on firmware version 220.127.116.11. Later versions may improve your experience. Having used Netgear home network equipment I was keen to give this a try. It replaced my DGND3700 which is still going strong.
Summary: Thought I'd post this in case some people assumed the same as me. I have both Virgin 100Mb/sec and an ADSL 8Mb/sec connection at home (fixed IP on ADSL for work) and assumed this could access both connections together, with static routing allowing me to set up fixed routes for work through the ADSL,...
Summary: We bought this we have a large stone built building and wanted good range, but it proved much poorer than our old netgear router in the end we discovered that it worked well in a more distant room if the main desktop Pc and speakers that were right next to it was switched off!
Summary: Obtained one of these second hand a few days ago and thus far have been very pleased with the purchase. Configuration takes a bit of time but is much easier than with my previous Netgear DGFV338 unit (still working fine, but now obsolete).
Easy set up, once updated reliable but not as super quick as expected on 5G

Summary: I found this modem router very easy to set up and once I remembered to run the latest firmware it has been entirely stable. My iPad 4 and iPhone 5 have been connected to the 5g network, with the rest of our computer equipment on the standard bandwidth,.
Summary: Set up was simple Range is good Quality of the WiFi is good Bandwidth is good Number of concurrent connected devices seems good (I can say it's definitely coped with 8 so far) Guest network/password is a useful feature On the whole it's been reliable.
Summary: Genie Smart wizard does not work too well and would not pick up settings so best to copy them down from old router before setting up. Once set up it works a charm including the Netgear Readyshare which is a good feature.
