No range. Have to be close to get connection.

EVA SABADOSA, Amazon
18 December 2014
  • Summary: Range is not very good. 25 feet away and connection drops all of the time. 5 year old modem was way better, but I needed a new router for Windows 8.

The worst router I ever owned.

Ryan C. Smith "Ryan Smith", Amazon
12 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this when it was new for about $150. Immediately off the bat it kept freezing up. I'd have to reboot it once a day. I got so mad I wanted to drive to Netgear and just smash it on their walkway. I ended up just shelving it and then just using a $25 linksys.

Worst Netgear Product ever

Muhammad N., Newegg
1 August 2013
  • Summary: From time to time, I think Netgear offers up a good low cost router, but I am definitely buying warranty next time.
  • Pros: Easy to set-up; worked great out of the box. No connection issues, but that was short lived....
  • Cons: It started giving dropped connections after 4 months of use. That's not unusual for a low cost router to act up every now and then. After about the 6 month mark, it would not hold up a connection long enough to check and send emails. Mind you, we are very low bandwidth users. I consider my intern...

The worst router I've ever owned

Felipe C. C. Rodrigues "Felipe Rodrigues", Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: After almost 2 years with this router I can definitely say this is the worst router I've ever owned. For a moment I thought that this might be a problem with my cable internet provider but I quickly realized this is just a factory problem which Netgear never had the decency to recall this product.

If I could give it negative stars, I would

Herman, Amazon
22 August 2011
  • Summary: There is no technical support on this product after 6 months when it conveniently, stops working. They then charge 60 dollars, the cost of the modem to even give you technical support, which is absurd. DO NOT purchase from Netgear. Stop these unfair practices!

Terrible router

John A., Newegg
25 July 2011
  • Summary: I had a cheapo N-draft router before this that had no problems broadcasting through the walls of my house and when it died, I came across this Netgear router on the expecting big things from it. Unfortunately, the only big thing I got was a big headache.
  • Pros: Looks stylish, works well as wired router
  • Cons: Wireless signal useless at more than six feet away or through a wall, slow and buggy firmware, died on me in three days.

Andrew M., Newegg
16 May 2011
  • Summary: Since it was recertified, could not get a refund. Spent an additional $11 to return for a replacement hoping the first unit was defective. Second unit's performance was the same. Will throw it away.
  • Pros: Good price for dual band
  • Cons: Very limited range. Spotty coverage at 20 - 30 ft. Useless in my house.

Another Bad one

William B., Newegg
17 April 2011
  • Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS ROUTER. THERE IS A REASON SOMEONE SENT IT BACK THE FIRST (OR SECOND, OR THIRD) TIME MAKING IT A "RECERTIFIED."
  • Pros: This one at least connects to the internet; Barely.
  • Cons: OK, here's the dirty secret. It will only connect at 300mbs (actually 270, but that's immaterial at this point in my frustration) to 1 (one) of the 2 frequencies at at time. So if you want to have the 5.0ghz band turned on AT ALL, the 2.4ghz band runs at 54mbs. But know this, the router is TERRIB...
