Summary: This router died in a bit over a year, so no warranty protection. It had been requiring almost daily resets in order to keep working for several months now. If you check online, you'll find that a lot of people complain about the consistently dropped wireless on this model.
Hates XPrint does NOT download AirPrint software into printers.

Summary: Does NOT work with a Lantronix XPrint Server. I thought this router would be great but it totally shuts out my iOS devices from printing to my Brother HL22770DW via the Lantronix XPrint Server. FORGET about calling NetGear for support. They want you to email them.
Summary: Bought this about 2 months ago (Feb 2016). Worked fine at at first like I'd expect, but suddenly today it just stopped working for no apparent reason. Spent an hour or so trying different cords, factory resets, etc.
Summary: We recently purchased this Netgear74 2.5/5 gig router to replace my dead router. We were able to connect to the internet but were not able to connect with other computers on the LAN, which we had previously been able to do (no settings on any of the computers had been changed).
Summary: 100% junk, after 1 to 2 hours Wi-Fi single drops (2.4 and 5) all lights go out then come back on, called Tech support and after several adjustments it worked for about 2 hours then same thing all over again exchanged routers 3 times with same results, Tech support now tells me my house wiring is bad...
Summary: Over the past several years I've owned three Netgear wireless routers. One was single band, two dual band. The design appearance and profile is great, the administrative interface excellent. The problem comes down to reliability.
Summary: Stay away from Netgear. I have purchased 2 routers and both were garbage in less than a year. They also are the worst customer support in the history of electronic industry. Hung up on me for asking for the representatives ID # 1209. Take your business back overseas and keep it there.
