Can’t set IP Address of modem to match existing network!!

J. MCFARLAND, Amazon
15 May 2015
  • Summary: Don’t buy this modem if you plan on setting your IP Address to anything in the 192.168.1.* to 192.168.7.* range. They reserve those numbers for their Guest Network, even if you aren’t using that "feature".

  • Summary: Finally decided to upgrade from my older Netgear router to the C3700. The first 2 weeks it worked perfectly. Then out of nowhere, certain apps on my wife and I's phones and certain websites would either work very slowly or not at all. Facebook, Netflix and Pandora worked extremely slowly if at all.

  • Summary: Won't lock on connection and bandwidth varies excessively. The cable technician showed a steady 110 Mb/s on his specialty device, but this device varies between 15 and 45 Mb/s (on a 50 Mb/s limit). The connection light keeps blinking.

E. King, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as the Wireless Gateway router supplied by Comcast was dropping my connection all the time.

I always had a good opinion of Netgear products until recently

Jeff, Amazon

  • Summary: I don't generally write anything in here, but I thought this might help others looking at this unit who occasionally or frequently work from home over VPN.

Total waste of money and product warranty is deceive

Vikas Kumar Bajaj, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this device to work with my Comcast Xfinity connection and this model as expected worked out of the box. But don't invest in this particular model at all if you are someone who is concerned about stable connection as this device fails to provide you stable wireless connection.
