Easy set up, once updated reliable but not as super quick as expected on 5G
3 October 2013
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,. All off these are improved in their download performance, from my husbands laptop to my sons blackberry playbook, as well as any sky downloads. i Its my Apple products that do not seem any faster.
Summary: Firmware seems to be a bit of a hit and miss yet. My router crashes everyday if UPnP is left on, and many set up changes require the router to be rebooted, which is pretty annoying. Apart from that, router has spectacular speed and most of the key features you would expect in a product at this price point. VPN is one notable omission but not really key for me.
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! I assume this has something to do with electro magnetic interference... This is not made clear in the literature and although kit is working well now caused us a lot of headaches.
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. When using Readyshare outside your home it will take a while to access files as it has to upload at painfully slow speeds.
Summary: I found this easy to setup and a big improvement to my home network. The parental control setting works well and gives comfort with teenage kids going online with laptops and iPads - I can filter their access through the router rather than loading and managing through software on each device. Not quite 5 stars because the iPad app is a bit cranky, however I am very pleased with the purchase.
Summary: I purchased this router and plugged it in and followed the instructions which took the whole of 2 mins to do and i was well away on the internet! You follow the online wizard which asks for your ISP login name and password which is easily available to you over the phone or just copy and paste from your old router and it connectes everything else for you. I am with Talktalk and the router i got free from them was awful..
Summary: Bought this modem router to replace an existing Netgear 834N router which I had had for a while but it decided to drop connections on a regular basis. Am a bit of a gadget person and like new products, but not a computer geek but can hold my own. So did a bit of research on this and was aware that the 802.11ac format, as at the time of writing (Nov 2012) is few and far between on laptops etc and it seems it is this format that makes the router "the worlds fastest wifi.
Summary: Je suis déçu par cet achat. N'utilisant pas la TV d'Orange ni le téléphone, je voulais un modem/routeur performant au niveau des connexions réseau. Celui-ci, avec des port Ethernet gigabit et du wi-fi 5Ghz le permet de belle manière. Cependant, le nombre de déconnexion à internet (ADSL) est aberrant. J'ai au moins un déconnexion par jour (et jusqu'à 10 par jour), même en pleine utilisation. Chose qui ne m'arrivait qu'une fois tous les 2 mois avec la box d'orange.
Summary: Отличный девайс для дома, который не хочется прятать под стол, а наоборот. Отличная функциональность. Порадовала гигабитная сеть, вот wifi проверить на максималке не получается. Ноут больше 150 Мб/с не тянет.
Pros: Отличный дизайн. Качество работы. Отличный интерфейс для настройки. Подключил внешний жесткий диск и работай. Гигабитная сеть просто супер. Есть возможность подключения как через dsl так и через ethernet порт к внешней сети.
Cons: Нет возможности повесить на стену. За такие деньги нет поддержки IPTV. Нет индикации какие LAN-порты работют.
