Excerpt: My household purchase the NetGear WND3300 about 9 months ago. The reason we were in the market for a new Router was because our old one was slowing us down. The recent addition of laptops to our lives had increased our inter-net usage threefold. This meant that we were on the Net all of the time and of course we wanted faster and faster speeds. Then we discovered wireless. Needless to say our old router was not up to the task.
Pros: Installation was quick and easy. It provides wireless service throughout my 3,000sq ft house and most importantly out to my shop, which is over 300 feet from the router (3 bars). It has not dropped any connections and in my humble opion works great.
Cons: None yet, despite all the negative feedback I've read about this router.
Summary: MAKE SURE YOU INSTALL DD-WRT BUILD 12533 OR LATER! Anything earlier has a nasty security hole that allows remote access. If you own one of these things and put DD-WRT on it, update ASAP.
Pros: I bought two of these things when they were cheaper refurbs. If you put DD-WRT on it, you should be golden. (SEE SECURITY ADVISORY BELOW) That said, let me quickly list the pros. #1 - I have NOT had dropped connections as others have reported. I'm assuming this is because DD-WRT fixed that. #2. I use the two routers "back to back" to extend my home network (and avoid the need for a cable stretching across the room). To do the same, do *NOT* use "Client Bridge" mode w/...
Cons: The default firmware has the most insane blue LED dome light. Thankfully, this was shut off by DD-WRT. I would say that the current price ($99.99) is pretty steep, but maybe it'll go on sale or there will be some refurbs available again.
Some of these reviewers lied about their tech knowledge...

Summary: For those of you who haven't heard of google, or a product manual:
Pros: I owned the previous Rangemax router, and it died on me last week after about 4 years. Once of the most solid pieces of equipment I've owned. I bought this one as an upgrade because it was $20 bucks more, and while I won't use the N band for a while, it was a nice addition.
