Summary: I got this netgear last week and set it up in just minutes. I was streaming netflix movies the rest of the night. I am at novice level and still this was that easy. I did not have any issues with the speeds at all. I do have service from Cox and could stream and be on the computer at the same time without a hint of slowing down...
Summary: This router is amazing. It took me 20 minutes to setup because i had to power cycle it after the firmware upgrade. I actually called Netgear and had them walk me through the process even though it was very simple. The had me set it up from the GUI instead of the CD. After setting it up, I noticed a drastic increase in my speeds. My Desktop has never loaded web pages so fast. I decommissioned my 4 year old Linksys wrt54g version 6.
Summary: Introduction This is my third router in 5 years. I upgrade when the technology takes a jump or when I start to see a lot of network outages or both. This time I replaced a router that was 802.11n but it was not dual band (netgear 3500 series). I used the 3500 about 2.5 years and I was starting to see more and more network outages.
Great Router. 5GHz requires dual band adapter. Current Gaming Consoles do NOT support Dual Band.

Summary: The router is fast. Connections are easily stablished, no drops, great range. I suggest not using the included CD, just log into the webpage listed on the instructions and this will take care of updates for your router. I do recommend using access control list with a security password to access your wireless network; it is basically a list where you input your wireless devices' MAC addresses, that way, you have an extra layer of security on your network.
Summary: Save yourself a lot of grief, don't let the router update on the initial setup. Set up router and internet connections to your liking, then let the router upgrade its firmware. It's superfast and steady. I am using dual bands simultaneously on one computer. I have a 2.4ghz usb adapter and a 5ghz usb adapter on at the same time, both locks on the signals with smooth HD video streaming and online gaming.
Summary: Best range, reliability, and throughput of any wifi router I've owned. And the colored LEDs look BAD ASS in the dark. Works great with wifi devices all over the house (~2500 sq ft) and the yard too. I choose to get a single dual band router for simplicity (don't want two routers), and because of the backwards compatibility.
Summary: First off, the WNDR37AV is the same unit as WNDR3700. Now as far as routers go, I've done a lot of research and finally went with this one. This unit is replacing a D-Link DIR-655 which I've had for almost 3 years. For the past 4 months or so, the D-Link was freezing and needed constant reboots.
Excerpt: For Netgear, it is one of the best routers out there. It is easy to setup and it is is fast. For me, I think this router is good for gaming. I have a gaming router and this router and I think that this router is better than my gaming one. When your playing online, it does not lag like other routers. This router is also nicely designed. I like how it stands on it side instead of flat on the ground. My whole house get good connection without any problems.
