If it's not broke, don't try to fix it.I would recommend for new installs

Summary: My router was 4 years old and working fine. I was not happy with the range because we could not connect to it from the 2nd floor. I though maybe it was time to upgrade and I was sure that technology advances over 4 years most likely improved range, speed, dependability etc. My new modem works exactly how the old one did. I have not noticed not even 1 improvement. Maybe my expectations were to high. The router works perfectly and has not let me down.
Summary: I just like this Router it is very confusing to use and I still cant get it into 5g. So I just run it in 2.4. I really wish I would have gotten one from another source with phone support. I am just being honest.
Pros: Super easy setup and very consistant signal (no signal dropping). Making this unit password secure is simple and it's a high quality unit. Some other brands are very cheaply made.
Cons: I was sorry to see the Netgear doesn't put out a signal like Linksys and the internal antennas makes it difficult to boost the signal. But I will admit the weaker signal (1 bar) doesn't seem to affect the late night movie watching.

Pros: looks cool, slim design, the light illuminates the living room at night making it a pretty nice night light.
Cons: I paid $130 last summer for this product, and I only really bought it for home use, xbox, etc. It's perfect for that, but for what I paid for it should do more than that such as usb port and gigabit.
Excerpt: Bought the router recertified from Newegg, great price but did not get a lot out of it. Received the router and setup was a jiff , had to update firmware to the latest and started to use it. It worked fine but then its starts to drop connection. I have tried different setup to see if it will go away but not so. And it started to drop connection so frequently that i had tostop using and switch to another router instead.
Pros: easy to install hardwiring can choose wireless modes
Cons: very weak software, if there is a problem you get to reset everything until you get it correct, or you can not connect to the netgear support web site tech support is useless, and part of the money I spent on this thing goes to their paycheck
