Works better than any other router I have had in a long while...

Summary: I bought this router in July 2008, and it has lasted longer without any hardware issues than most wireless routers I have owned. After the v1.045 firmware upgrade, this has become the most stable wireless router that I have owned. The router has no issues with DCHP, DNS, routing load nor hardware stability. I have two Tivo's, a PS3, a Slingbox, a VoIP adapter, a Skype adapter, an HP MediaSmart WHS, and four laptops that connect at any given time to the internet...
Summary: This router provides great connectivity throughout the house and maintains fairly consistent throughput wherever there is coverage. The range is more than twice that of my Airlink N router, with far more reliable connections several rooms away. The thoughput could use some improvement, though: I could get only a little more than wireless-G's theoretical bandwidth through this router, even when the wireless computer is only a few feet away.
Summary: This seemed like one of the best home use Netgear wireless routers when looking at the Netgear model line up. When I bought this router, I didn't fully understand how "dual band" worked, but it sounded good for reducing interference. I wanted the best, so I got this one. Now I realize I cannot benifit from the dual band.
DD-WRT brings true dual-band high performance to this mediocre router

Summary: The WNDR3300 is/was an interesting product from Netgear that is crippled by Netgear's firmware. While the hardware is dual-band & dual-radio, the Netgear firmware doesn't let you use both radios independently. And off course it doesn't support features like creating a mesh network, functioning as a repeater, repeater bridge or client bridge. The hardware is also crippled by the size of the flash memory - only 4 MB, part of which (~400 KB) cannot be accessed.
Easy to set up but overall performance is just ok.

Summary: This is an N band router so it will not improve your speed if you have a computer on wireless G band. My RangeMax WNDR3300 came with the Wireless N adapter in the box since it was a gift from Amazon Vine program. I have also tried the Linksys WRT160N Ultra RangePlus Wireless-N Broadband Router recently, which is a little cheaper than this router so I was able to compare the results.
Summary: Oggi parliamo del nuovo router wireless da poco sfornato dai laboratori NetGear, il RangeMax Dual Band WNDR3300. Il prodotto si presenta in una confezione modesta, la quale una volta aperta ci mostra in tutto il suo splendore il nostro bellissimo router. Design compatto e eleganza caratterizzano il nostro box dal colore nero lucido con il suo bel pulsantone blu al centro, il quale una volta attivato andrà alla ricerca di tutte le periferiche wireless, trasmettendo loro...
