Summary: Works perfect in my little dorm room. Didn't come with the feet or anything else except an ethernet cable. You need two cables if you're going to set this up with a laptop so keep that in mind. So happy I bought this, and being previously used has definitely not negatively affected its performance!!
Summary: It's been an amazing experience with flashing Netgear routers to dd-wrt. Normally, I use router Netgear WNR2000v1. It's working fairly. Then, I learned that model WNDR3300 is DUO channel router which allows users to set 2.4GHz or 5GHz wireless connection. It's interesting to me, so I purchased a Netgear WNDR3300. Unfortunately, I got a defective router model WNR3300v1. It works fairly as same as my old router WNR2000v1 but its wireless connection dropping anytime.
Summary: The original router is crap. I kept having problems with the router dropping signals or only being able to connect 1 wireless device at a time. So after much tinkering with the settings in the router and getting nowhere i found out there is better 3rd party firmware available called dd-wrt. After installing DD-WRT firmware the router is fantastic no dropped signals at all.
Summary: This router solved the problem I had with too many corners in my house from LinkSys router to laptop, so when my nephew's router had similar but worse capability (he has satellite ISP; I have cable) I got the Netgear router for him as a Christmas/birthday gift (and so I can access the internet more easily when I visit!) He tells me it works fine too.
Summary: Over 10 years of DIY home networking experience. Played with lots of routers and home networking equipment and I count this one among the better. I got this thing for $40 refurbished. Then I followed instructions I found online (Google around for DD-WRT WNDR3300) to flash it to DD-WRT. There's also another review on this site that gives more detailed instructions.
Summary: I'm stupid. I need something that when I hook up the cables, switch the wireless switch on my laptop, plug the router on and the shiny globe in the bottom right hand corner of the computer screen comes on. It works!!! No passwords, no software, no phone calls to my I.T. friends needed. I have three of these. One for home, one for overseas (Voltage converter needed)and an extra if either breaks or gets wet.
Summary: I bought 2 refub units to use as repeaters linked to the home unit WNDR3300. Netgear's example of configuration as a repeater left a bit to be desired, so a bit of experimentation yielded great results. Also, there is no tech support from Netgear for refurbs, sad. The units work very well as repeaters and so far after a month, I have not had to reset either one or restart. Range extension is roughly 50-60 feet with a good signal of 3 bars.
