Summary: Great device! Easy to install. You can also register it on netgear.com even if the serial # is scratched, by connecting the router ( while its connected to internet for the first time) to a laptop with LAN.
Summary: Easy to set up. worked well for 6 weeks. stopped working. To get a replacement under warranty I need to ship it back but pay between $19 and $29 for the return shipping unless I am willing to wait for standard shipping of 5 to 7 business days. bought it at Walmart. wish I could return it there.
Summary: It only worked for 3 months. When it quit I called neither support. Their response was to buy an extended warranty for 149.00. Being that it was more than I paid for it I will buy another router. But not made by netgear.
Summary: Refurbed and works perfect!!! Dual channel? One fast channel for video streaming or gaming etc, and the other channel for common devices like computers, cell phones, tablets etc. It like having 2 wifi networks in your house!
Summary: I see the complaints about poor connectivity or dropping connections. I had that initial result with this router until I changed the channel to 11. I used a free program called, "inSSIDer" to look at the signal levels.
Pros: First I will say that initially the router worked fine. I bought it to replace a cable company router that would not give me full speed wireless.
Cons: After a while it just slowed down. Now I get 10 meg a sec when I should get 35. It is out of warranty for service. I have looked all over the internet but can't find a solution. Looks like I will have to purchase a new one.
