  • Summary: We have a particular problem because our network must connect two buildings. This product seems to have helped but I would not call it RangeMax.

Great router, not great range

Anna White, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: Great router with lots of capabilities, especially with an upgrade to DD-WRT firmware (all versions are compatible with DD-WRT). I love the dual 2.4 & 5 Ghz networks. The only downside is that its wireless range is not what I was expecting -- it does not throw the signal very far, and I had to set up an old router as a repeater to get a proper connection in my garage. Otherwise, it's awesome. (No problems with refurbished.

You are on your own for installation

Michael J. Smith "Petaluma Pete", Amazon
19 October 2012
  • Summary: If you know how to install a router without any assistance, this is probably a good product. I was disappointed to discover that the product came without instructions, support or an installation CD. The only documentation was a little piece of paper directing me to the Netgear website where I would find the installation wizard download and instructions.

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

dorkydad, Viewpoints

  • 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.

Did not work with Smartphone

Silver Eagle "Silver Eagle", Amazon
28 August 2012
  • Summary: Setup was easy enough; wifi connection worked well enough with our laptop and wifi printer. Not so with our Verizon/Motorola Razr smartphones; we could not connect through the router. We contacted Verizon and Motorola; both said the problem was in the router, which would not accept our password. I was disappointed because I liked the unit; however, I returned it for a refund and hooked up the Belkin WBR-1310 that I've had since 2006.

User Review

  • 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.
