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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I purchased this item from Amazon about six months ago. It worked very well for 5 months and then started dropping connection with my modem. After a few calls to Time Warner who were extremely helpful to diagnose and find the problem I was told that my modem was working well and I had problem with my router. I then called the tech support to ask for help. I was connected to an agent (in Asia??
Summary: Not such a good buy. Needed a new n-router for new high-speed service at work. Should have read the reviews on the net about maintaining a connection. Set up a secured network but only about 1/2 of my devices were able to maintain a connection (each was able to connect without problems)! Used a mix of Windows 7, XP, Android and iOS devices try to connect and it was really hit or miss. To be fair, the connections which stayed connected had great throughput.
Summary: I have about 10 wireless devices currently connecting successfully to an older Linksys Wireless G router. Some of these devices are recently added video players (Samsung TV, Panasonic Blu-Ray Player, WD TV Live HD Plus). I decided it was time to update to wireless N, and I wanted a router that would be more robust and reliable, so I purchased the Netgear WNDR37AV (which apparently is really identical to the WNDR3700).
Per NetGear: WNDR37AV<>WNDR3700v2; Inside the Box: WNDR37AV=WNDR3700v2

Summary: Driven by the hype of WNDR3700v1 ordered this for $129.95, as this was supposed to be the same as that. However, upon opening the box, it was a WNDR3700v2 with 188.8.131.52. Accepted. Pros: * Loaded to the brim. Dual band, Guest Networking, QoS, Traffic meter ReadyShare, Green features like Wireless ON/OFF..and what not. Cons: * Slow Page Loads: Pull a web page, if you're lucky, will launch fine else keep waiting indefinitely.
