Summary: I really wanted to like this, but it's going back. I keep having to reboot, and get no internet access. It's not my cable modem, because when I direct wire into it, I have no problems. I went to netgear's forums, and a lot of people seem to have this problem.
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 box. Forget about trying to contact somone for customer service. You will waiting for a hour and get dropped.
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.
I still use the old router which is good to about 80 feet

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. If you need a very expensive switch this is it. If you want a router that will reach out 200 feet. Look some where else. This ain't it.
Summary: I selected this router because I needed a wi-fi router that would provide these advanced features: * Ability to configure specific DNS servers to be handed out by the DHCP server. * Ability to configure static routes to support multiple subnets. This router claims to have both these features. Both these features are configurable in the router's web interface.
Summary: This product was purchased to replace a 2wire router, via ATT service contract. The Netgear was suggested by our new provider, Charter. However two things about this product were unsatisfactory; 1) no software or instruction manual were included, Not mentioned in the product description. 2) the signal strength is far weaker than the 2Wire which covered every area in our very small, single level home. Very Disappointed in this product!!!
Summary: Easy to install and to set up, BUT after installation my connection to my satellite Internet was slower, particularly uploading. I have a Davis weather station that uploads weather data every 15 minutes - with my old router it took about four minutes. With this new NETGEAR router it took about six and a half minutes. I took it back for an easy return and refund and bought a LINKSYS AC1200 which uploads my weather data in about 3 minutes.
