Excerpt: This router was purchased because our previous router did not cover all parts of our home and the number of devices we can have working at any given time. We purchased the NETGEAR N600 Dual Band WiFi DSL Modem Router ADSL2+, Gigabit Ethernet DGND3700 by Netgear with the hope of filling that voids in...
Excerpt: Skip this product. Out of the box could not getconnected to the internet even with the wired (ethernet)connection! I had to call Netgear tech. support and they could notfigure out why I had no IP address. The device could not find anaddress. I eventually found the problem....
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Does Not Want To Connect, Slow Connection Speed, Wifi Range Is Very Short

Summary: I bought this after my old Linksys WAG54G stopped being able to save changes. Unfortunately things did not go well. Periodically, this N300 would stop routing network traffic between the wired and wireless networks, so my laptop and phone couldn't talk to my home NAS or server.
Summary: I've had two of these in just over two years. (Un)Fortunately, the warranty is two years. Netgear's turn around is fairly quick (less than two weeks) for replacement units. I doubt the replacement carries a warranty from the replacement date though!
