It gives you a high speed connection. That's it though.

  • Summary: I needed a router for gaming and networking devices. This router is great if you do not need a router that you want to print wireless/hard wired "Connected with an Ethernet Cable" from and transfer data between computer. It will not allow devices to communicate with each other. I found that you can not ping devices that are connect to this router.

Very difficult to get it functioning properly-

Dave Prossner, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: Startup CD did not load fully. Their recommendation to go to routerlogin.net and or .com was not reachable. Tech help very difficult to understand. Had to hire 2 sessions of tech help at MY Expense to get it to work. Certainly not "plug and play". Finally have it working and keeping my fingers crossed every time I turn it on.

First I've heard of THIS...

FLPatriot, Amazon

  • Summary: My laptop had a little trouble connecting to this router, but after it created a new network name, it was up and running. Although my printer was able to wirelessly connect to it, my laptop couldn't find the printer. Since the difficulty only started with this new router, I called Netgear. This is where it really got interesting.

Slooooooooooowwww USB access

practical_tactical, Amazon
2 June 2013
  • Summary: Works exactly as advertised, they just never mentioned how slow the USB access is. Browsing a folder with 400 folders of music artists takes minutes. Once you have something streaming thought it's flawless so far. Full resolution TED talks run just fine. Simple to connect to via Playstation 3, Mac (Mountain Lion tested), or PC (via ftp).

  • Summary: This unit was flaky and didn't work correctly. It would not stay sync'd up with my wireless router whereas my N300 would.

Not so much

Gregory Tassin, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: I picked up this one to replace my older Netgear wireless router (works great). So for I have not been able to get the new one to work at all! I'm not new to setting up networks or computers so I do know what and how to do it. Maybe this one is just a bad one. I asked one of my friends to take it home with him and see if he could get it working. He was unable to get it to work also.

It's a shame this thing doesn't work reliably.

Klaus Steden, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: I'd been using a D-Link router for several years and it was on its' way out; I looked at several, this one looked to be the most interesting among several vendors with comparable feature sets, but after programming it for my home network, I was disappointed with the lack of reliability. It works great for a few days, and then will inexplicably stop broadcasting its SSIDs, meaning I can't connect with my smart phone, headless servers, etc.

Stopped sending wireless signal

Chris, Amazon
2 March 2013
  • Summary: Worked great for a month or so. Then when I would get up inthe morning and try to connect to kindle or laptop there was no wireless signal. I would do a scan and none of my devices would find the modem. I have to go into my basement and turn the modem off and on again several times a day to get it to start sending a signal again. When it works it works good, but unfortunately I don't like having to re-set it multiple times per day.
