Summary: I have 50 mbps high speed broad band internet connection at my home. If I connect my laptop or ipad through wireless connection to this router it is giving only 10 to 14 mbps and also looses internet connection frequently.
Excerpt: I have used Netgear routers in the past with few to no problems whatsoever. In this case, I encountered a number of troubles the moment I plugged this in. The router had to be rebooted at least twice a day in order for all my pages to open; there were several pages that did not come up while others...
Summary: Slow page refresh. Horrible technical support. Wait for 60 minutes. For help only to ne told that because I don't have premium support, they won't help me. At no time was it offered, and what happened to 90 day warranties?
Summary: We could use a router with much better access controls. Like, turn on openDNS monday-friday and turn it off on weekends. This router could implement that feature in theory, but in practice it follows the same OpenDNS schedule every day, so the feature is so useless we had to buy a 2nd router for the...
Pros: It supports Samba / Disk drives; our notebook drive plugged right in and worked quickly. It has 3 levels of access control : MAC-ID, OpenDNS, and port blocking
Cons: The 11-g range is about 10 feet in our house. Barely.
Summary: The speeds are excellent when it works, I have two issues with this product 1. Range is not great, i live in a small condo and i have an issue using it in the bedroom 2. It keeps dropping connection very often...i have to restart the modem when it does which is not fun

Summary: The router works but I think it still has some issues. Often, communication speeds are really slow. I checked everything else and the problem appears to be with the router. However, it does work. Next time I will buy a new one.
Excerpt: As of 3/2014 you can't register for Readyshare. Readyshare is needed to use usb access & share USB storage, Readyshare wireless printer, Readyshare cloud. These are the main features I purchased this model.Netgear should remove this model from the stores if features are not available as shown on the...
When it works properly, it's great. But when's that?

Summary: This is my 4th Netgear Router and up to now they've been great - at least for 2-3 years of constant use. This one? Not so much. Took FOREVER to connect to my cable modem. Had to reboot it twice before I could get the config website to open. From there it just got more frustrating.

Summary: Bought it to replace an old netgear router and looked forward to increased range. Expect about fifty feet. I still use the old router which is good to about 80 feet. I just plugged my computer into this one with a cat five cable and gave up on netgear. Disappointed wouldn't describe my emotion.
