Summary: I have 60 mbs from my IPS and this router can only deliver 38-40 mbs wirelessly. Tech support kept me on the phone for 1 1/2 hours, played with the settings and when they were done reduced the mbs to 27 and told me it was my computer that was the problem. Wired directly, I get 63 mbs.
Excerpt: I tried to get it to work. It would not generate an IP address. I am an IT professional so I know what I'm doing. I bought this for my Mother to save her a little money. I returned the unit and get a Linksys E4200.

Summary: Set up was easy and worked fine for the first couple weeks and now it randomly decides to stop working. I was enticed by the sweet deal this offered by it being refurbished but have learned my lesson.
So far, REALLY BAD. 2 weeks and incredibly iffy. NETGEAR, respond please.

Summary: I purchased this router on: Placed on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 from amazon. I have been using it since November 13, 2014. It has been working fine and exactly as I had hoped until this morning. Around 10AM ( I was at work ) my wife called me and told me the internet was not working.
Excerpt: Judging by my experience and the experience of others, I'd have to say something went wrong with they designed this. The 5 Ghz signal doesn't work at all. I'll be returning it tomorrow. 2.4 works ok, but why pay $100 for a router that only half works.
