  • Summary: It started dropping the internet and I had to constantly turn it on and off to connect to the internet. I tried calling tech support and they informed me that this product has only a 90 day warranty. They suggested that I buy tech support, but it was cheaper to just go back to Wal-Mart and buy a new router.

Worked very well until radio abruptly died at 23 months.

  • Summary: The router was connected on a home network with several PCs, a TV, a Wii and a range extender. The router is straightforward to configure and maintain. I found it to only rarely need a reboot and almost never to drop the signal. Then abruptly the radio dropped to only transmitting about 5' (no matter what band). A check of web forums reveals that sudden failure of the radio on this model is a known defect.

Stay far away from Netgear and this Router

  • Summary: After years of use, countless problems, included but not limited to: random wireless disconnects, router restarts, premium features not working properly (USB ReadyShare), etc, I have finally decided to toss the device. What's the icing on the cake? Contacting Netgear Tech Support (especially the Phone Support outsourced to India I believe) is the absolute worst experience imaginable.

Not happy w/ WNDR3700v4

HP, Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: The WNDR3700v4 I rec'd may be defective. Network activity / status lights don't flash up front like my WNDR3700v2 & the Access Point Mode feature isn't working in the Netgear GUI (I click Apply but nothing happens). Network connections seem OK for a few minutes then I lose Internet. Wifi icon still suggests I have a wireless connection; however, I can't ping anything or open a webpage.

  • Summary: I got this with new Dell computer and works okay for main adjacent computer which defeats the purpose. Very very poor range.
  • Pros: Works okay up close
  • Cons: Horrible Range

Stopped working after 18 months

Bennett, Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: Same problem as others are experiencing, after about 18 months, it no longer connects more than a few feet away, even at that distance there are only three bars of signal strength. There used to be full signal anywhere in my house. Also noticed a very high pitched noise right when this problem started. Now the search is on for a new one, not sure what to go with, this was rock solid until it failed, I expected it to last more than 18 months!!

Stops working after one year

pwhuk, Amazon

  • Summary: STOP! The 2.4 GHz radio functionality (which most devices use to connect) failed completely shortly after one year of operation. There is simply no ability to connect a device any further than 12 inches (30 cm) away from the router. After 10 days of frustration with NETGEAR support (don't waste your time) they stated that the unit was defective and I would have to buy a new one.

Great router unless you want wireless.

Joe, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this product while I was deployed to Afghanistan. When I finally returned home and plugged it in, it worked exceptionally well for about 2 weeks. Then my wireless signal failed to the point that I currently have 25% signal strength from 3 feet away. I've spent over a month working with Netgear support trying to get the issue resolved or the unit replaced, but it's a hardware problem and they do not support refurbished products.

  • Summary: Charter had a new special for me to UPGRADE! Yay! I'd save $5 and get more cable channels and faster internet. They replaced my old router with this one and it drops the signal MULTIPLE times per hour EVERY single day for the past 2 weeks. I've had Charter out here twice now and they've given up and given me my money back. When you call NetGear they say you have to call the place you bought it through, so they won't even ATTEMPT to help me get this junk working.
