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: 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).
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: Pros 1. Great Build Quality 2. Extremely easy setup 3. Good Short-Mid range performance 4. First Modem-Router combo that delivers performance similar to the traditional decoupling of a modem and Router. Completely hassle free! Cons 1. Bit bulky 2.
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.
Summary: Bought this to replace a zoom modem/router,it seems to do the business not dropped the line once haven't tried the ac feature but the duel band works fine with talktalk using googles DNS server Theirs doesn't seem to work properly, a tad on the large size (like a picture frame) and a annoying...
Easy set up, once updated reliable but not as super quick as expected on 5G
10 August 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,.
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: 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!
