  • Summary: I bought the wrong item. I was actually looking for a wireless router/modem. I ended up returning it. The one issue I had with this purchase is it looked like I received someone else's returned item. I purchased online to pick up in the store and was given a used item.

weak signal compared to others

  • Excerpt: I bought the dual band because of the proximity to other wireless routers. While it works "OK", other routers fill up the bars ( these are in other residences nearby). Mine gives me 3 out of 5 sitting right next to the router.

Checks Out Now And Then

  • Excerpt: The Netgear is an OK router ... until it stops working on you. I've had this for about a year. It was easy to set up. The software was a piece of cake, as was setting my code. The price was right, too, especially since I got it on sale. I can only assume that the security settings are sufficient, but God knows what kind of hacks are available these days. My main problem, however, is that every so often the Netgear just decides to quit working.

Followup to my 8/30/2012 review

  • Summary: I currently have it configured as an AP only, to add .11N wireless LAN to my existing network.
  • Pros: This is a followup to my 8/30/2012 review. Star rating will stay the same. I re-flashed firmware with newer DD-WRT version, and the 2.4 GHz radio came back to life. Throughput is on par for .11G wireless. I then flashed the latest factory firmware from Netgear, and everything appears working well (for now).
  • Cons: I am still hesitant to use the Netgear as my sole router/AP.

Ath0 dead, Ath1 diminished power - 45 days after purchase

  • Summary: My totally reliable WRT54G has a smug look on its face.
  • Pros: On paper, this is a super router. At least it was affordable (refurb) to experiment with for a month and a half. DD-WRT flashed without issue, and it worked reliably for about 6 weeks.
  • Cons: No warranty. This evening, a .11G client lost its connection. Testing with a .11N client showed drastically reduced signal strength & quality. This is somewhat of a known issue with various revisions of WNDR3700s. It's still working as a wired device - I'm submitting this through it now. Will try reflash.

Great performance, but doesn't last!

  • Summary: All the great reviews it gets are from folks who just had it a few months, but here's what to expect: This router simply cannot handle the the two printers, 4 wireless and 3 wired devices I have connecting to it for very long. Time is it's enemy. My first lasted a little over a year, next one lasted 11 months, replacement lasted 90 Days!

Mixed results 2.4/5 GHz

Toby D., Newegg
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Immediately upgraded to 1.0.0.24. May try the 1.0.0.25 beta later?
  • Pros: The most features for the money comparing current Netgear models.
  • Cons: 5 GHz signal strength is only 1/3 to 1/4 the strength of the 2.4 GHz signal: 24% vs 83%. Only using 2.4 GHz even tho I have 5GHz devices. However, I did test Netflix wireless streaming for about 2hrs on 5GHz and it did not drop. Older 54 Mbps G AP always dropped.

  • Summary: When I saw this router, I was very excited! I can essentially have TWO separate networks with ONE router. One band for regular everyday computing and one 5 GHZ band for my PS3 which I stream movies from both my desktop and Netflix. I set up my router, used the CD which was an easy painless process, I logged onto the routers personal site checked all my settings; good to go right? Nope, only one band was showing up, the basic 2.4 GHZ band.
