Excerpt: Bought this to use with Charter Internet. Worked fine for 7 months then just stopped. All lights worked, looked like it was connecting but would not sync. Spent an hour with Netgear support, nothing worked then tech stated the 90 day warranty was out and to get more support I would have to purchase a plan from net gear. I had purchased the 2 year protection plan from Staples, so I began another journey. Staples forgets to tell you it's a third party provider.
The only noticeable difference between this router and the Linksys ...

Summary: The only noticeable difference between this router and the Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 it replaces is the dual bands. I was hoping for a stronger signal at the more distant rooms of my home, but I haven't noticed any discernible difference. I was unable to connect this unit directly with my incoming DSL line, so I still need to keep a separate modem on my desk.
Summary: I had to return the one I bought as it completely crashed out on me once I connected an external hard drive and my new laser printer... So brought back to exchange. So far 2nd one seems to be working way better..
Summary: i bought this router because my dad got it to replace the same old one we had. it worked great for my dad. great range. all the way to the garage which is not connected to the house. and their house is a long house. we also have a long house. but the modem is in what used to be a garage of an older house. when we get to the other end of the house, we lose signal on our current router. so i had high hopes when my dad says this new one could reach to their garage.
You can roll the dice and buy this router and it might be good for you, but I would not buy a NETGEAR product again

Summary: Not as easy to set up as it should be unless all you want a router to do is connect a computer to the internet. I had to use the tech service (and they are in India and hard to understand) to get pointers on how to Port forward this router. The manual and explanation of features are inadequately written and there are very few examples of "This is how that is done". Also the signal output for the higher freq band (5GHZ) is much weaker than the signal for the 2.4GHZ band.
Excerpt: Much easier to set up than the WNR3500 that it's replacing. Tech support leaves a lot to be desired. I sent them an Email about the Genie software for Macintosh always downloading as damaged. They cannot even pass this on and keep insisting I have to register my router which is not the problem.
Excerpt: I purchased this because I was not getting a strong signal from my existing router. I was told my router was old and outdated and it was time to replace it. After paying $97 and installing this router, the signal is not any stronger than the $20 router I had before. Luckily I have 2 weeks to return it.

Summary: While this was very adequate I expected a far improved performance from it over my previous router. This one cost 3x what my old one did and the speed and capacity was not that much better. It works fine but I could have purchased a cheaper one to do the same thing. Oh well, next time I will go with the lower cost one.
Excerpt: I like it when it works, but it drops out every couple of days and I have to reset it. I would like to know why it is doing this? Is there a problem with the Router or is the problem with my internet company?
