Summary: Bought this three months ago. Setup was simple, the signal range is great, and the advanced features are numerous. Port forwarding, etc, is intuitive. It's been on pretty much 24/7 with no issue.
Summary: I found out that my Linksys BFESX41 router was keeping me form getting the full speed that I had available from my ISP, it was capable of only 10mbps speed but normaly only provided about 4.5mbps.
Summary: I haven't had this set up long enough to provide any real substance on the performance of this router, but I can say that it seems faster and more secure than my previous g-router that lasted at least 6-7 years. I will be this router to connect my HDTV and blu ray to the internet.
Summary: This wasn an upgrade for from a netgear2000. The only negative I have is that my older3.0 I phone will no longer connect but my 4.0 is awesome. I get a little more range and a little more speed with less lag pushing 3 xbox live consoles,lap top,I phone
Summary: I purchased this as an upgrade for a Sitecom router that served me well for 4 years. The range on the 2.4ghz band is fantastic showing 50% strength on a spot that previously had no coverage with my old router. However the 5ghz band cannot compare.
Summary: I upgraded from the Netgear WPN824 and wow what a difference! With the WNDR37AV I now get full bars in every room, through four walls (metal stud construction) except in the garage which gets almost full bars. Setup was very easy.
Some technical stuff you should know: "v2" & "Firmware upgrade"

Summary: Order mine on Feb 8, 2011. Arrived on Feb. 16, 2011. The "v1" or "v2" question: The box lists the router as having "8MB of memory" (v1 has 8MB, the v2 has 16MB according to the Netgear website).
Summary: First off, this IS a WNDR3700 with updates. It costs about $10-$20 less though, so it seems clear which one to buy! I am going to lead off here with what you won't like: The firmware - It is basic. It looks pretty much like what Netgear had 5 or 8 years ago.
Summary: Briefly, the basic wireless functions seem to work as advertised - my impression is that it has fairly good range and throughput. Every indication is that it is a WNDR 3700 (setup page titles, etc.) in a WNDR37AV cardboard packing box.
