Summary: Make sure from your ISP before you buy a ADSL modem if your connection is ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ (Older technology) or VDSL/VDSL2 (New technology). This is dependent on the connection they ran to your house and and not city / ISP. ADSL and VDSL are NOT compatible with each other.
Summary: I bought this "gateway" to replace one supplied by AT&T (2Wire). The DGND3300 is feature rich and I did not find setup too difficult, although I must confess to being a neophyte at wireless networking. This gateway is supposed to be energy conserving.
Summary: It is a great device, shiny, with all the fancy tickling lights, (which you can switch off!) except few. It does the basics of a modem and router, but not the perfection. WPS not work at all, once clicked; the network name changed suddenly, and disconnect other devices already paired to the router.
Summary: I bought this modem to replace an old Wireless G LinkSys and to replace my old Westell 6100 DSL modem from Verizon. The strong points of this modem are the fact that it transmits at both the G and N standards (my old laptop detects two different wireless sources from the modem, both G and N), and...
Summary: Re: Netgear DGND3300 - MPEG stream dropping I just installed a Netgear DGND3300 wireless router/DSL modem. I have an IP webcam on my LAN, the webcam streaming video as MPEG. The DGND3300 keeps dropping the MPEG stream.
Summary: I liked the idea of having a combination one device instead of a separate modem & router to eliminate a couple of extra wires, and I liked the idea that it might be faster and have less interference on the 2.4 ghz band. Okay on the first, but otherwise no improvement over my old wireless-G network.
A good router in the making, firmware not quite ready as I write this

Summary: Everything in a review of a device like this is really a review of the device firmware. And the firmware is still in development. Some features, like USB and file sharing, are just starting to work. If you are a Linux guru and want an advanced router, you can have some fun with this right now.
Summary: Yes it does work as advertised with all the bells, whistles and dazzling lights, but some other wireless DSL routers have similar functionality and are priced for a little less. After my old 2-wire DSL router died, I decided to buy this as a replacement. I couldn't wait for shipping.
Summary: Im 5Ghz-Bereich wesentlich schlechtere Empfangseigenschaften als im 2,4Ghz-Bereich. Was nützt da schon die (theoretisch vorhandene) höhere Übertragungsgeschwindigkeit, wenn überhaupt keine Verbindung zustande kommt. Unstabile Scannersoftware. USB-Anschluß erkennt manche USB-Sticks nicht u.s.w.
