"A ROUTER THAT DOES NOT DO THAT WHAT IT IS DESIGNED FOR"
23 March 2013
Pros: - CONNECTIVITY WITH 1 DEVICE IS OK - IT HOLDS AN AVERAGE SANDWICH PRETTY WELL - DROPPING WATER ON IT DOESNT BREAK IT
Cons: - ONCE YOU PLUG IN MORE THAN ONE DEVICE THE INTERNET WILL CRASH. THIS WILL THEN HAPPEN EVERY 2-5 MINUTES. CONNECTION WILL SOMETIMES BE OK WHEN 2 DEVICES ARE PLUGGED IN, BUT IS NONEXISTANT AS SOON AS THE 3RD DEVICE GETS CONNECTED.
Excerpt: This modem performed horribly. I was getting booted off of the internet about every 20 minutes and it would take me about 10 more minutes to get back on the web. I don't consider myself the type to be overly critical, but criticism must be given where it is due. The customer service at Netgear is really horrendous as well. If you can understand what they're saying it usually doesn't make any sense. They were not very helpful at all.
Excerpt: Maybe a Netgear Wireless Router, WNDR3300, works for some, but ffom my experience it was difficult to hook up and not only that, but it also never worked! I tried everything. I called Netgear about it, had a professional install it for me, the had another proffesional install it for me, troubleshooted, visited the Netgear Customer website, everything. I could not get it working and neither could anyone else, even the professionals...
Cons: Everything. The setup was exhaustive for a novice and then it would just stop transmitting the wireless signal whenever it wanted I've had a tech specialist friend trouble shoot the damn thing and now tells me to get something else.
Pros: When it works, speed and range are adequate.
Cons: After a few months, router begins to lose connectivity due to overheating or some other flaw. Technical support will not even listen to your problem unless you pay their support fee, which ranged from $40-70.
I feel deceived – Total waste of time, money, and sanity!

Summary: This item was listed as mfg. refurbished so I contacted Netgear for support and they told me they do not refurbish they do not know who does therefore they (Netgear) will NOT support this item. This item does NOT have a serial #! Apparently, after hours of getting this set up - it reset itself and I lost my entire internet connection. Now, I had to spend more time with my internet provider undoing what I did.
Summary: WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! do not buy this product!!!!!!!!!! I changed modems and it stopped working....i called netgear, they told me i had to pay $30 a month to subscribe to there product service....after 2 hrs on the phone...then i contacted TIGER DIRECT from who refurbished it...they told me to pound sand................. so now iam stuck with a router that only works with my old modem.......
