DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK!

Summary: Save yourself some time, and money... The only sure thing about this piece of junk, is that you're going to have drop connections in an all time basis! If you want to avoid the embarrassment of having all your video conversations "cut" out in the middle (so to speak) every 5 minutes, AVOID!!!
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...
Summary: I purchased this item Nov 2008 and it has not worked correctly since then. It constantly drops the signal and many times have to reset the router. I have spoken to tech support 6 times and they try to fix it (change settings, download software) and each time it does not work. Their tech support and customer service is not very helpful. The last time I called customer service (a few days ago) and told them I want to exchange for a new one under the one year warranty.
Summary: I bought a new home and my Netgear Rangemax MIMO Router, which has been wonderful and reliable for the last 3 years, wasn't able to push a strong signal to our second garage. With that said, I thought I would upgrade to N technology. I have had the WNDR3300 for about 3 weeks. I have tried everything to get this router to work properly but to no avail. Download the firmware upgrades - check. Contact tech support for help - check. Moved the position of the router - check.
Summary: I have just had the worst experience ever with a product and customer service with my first Net Gear branded purchase WNDR3300. Net Gear is aware that there is a firmware failure in this system that creates intermittent signal drops when more than one wireless device connects to this router - and they do not know how to fix it.
Excerpt: I live in a house that has three stories. A gaming room on the first floor on one side of the house, and the internet/router is setup on the third floor on the other side of the house. I had some doubts about this router being able to reach far enough to support the computer room, but boy was I wrong.
Excerpt: Habe den Router seit Samstag 16.01.2010 in Betrieb. Er sollte einen vorhandenen Ap ersetzen, leider zeigte die Installationssoftware schon massivste Schwächen, nach manueller Installation und Integration in mein bestehendes Netzwerk sollte die Arbeit weitergehen, aber durch ständige Abbrüche des Wlan (b,g) lässt sich keine sinnvolle Nutzung etablieren. Zugriff auf Netzplatte über Wlan sorgt reproduzierbar für Absturz des Wlan.
