Summary: The Netgear WNDR3700 is fast, reasonably easy to set up, and stocked with some interesting features. We love the ability to run 5GHz and 2.4GHz networks simultaneously, and the built-in USB function is useful for sharing content locally and across the Internet.
Pros: Dual-band operation works very well, fast 5GHz operation, USB port for sharing storage devices, content on USB drives is accessible over the Internet
Cons: Couldn't use USB devices to serve media to our PlayStation 3, Web interface needs a redesign -- enough with the frames already!
Summary: A fast, well-featured router, but its range is only average. There's nothing shy about Netgear's range-topping WNDR3700. Although it has no protruding aerials, it measures more than 200mm tall and 150mm wide; fortunately, its glossy finish and LEDs aren't intrusive.
