Disappointed

Bill, Staples
3 January 2013
  • Summary: Bought as a high end back-up for my Asus router when I had to send it in for replacement. Performance was not even close. Range was very disappointing. Should have purchased a cheaper version. Definitely not worth the price.

  • Summary: Purchased as a high end back-up for my ASUS router that I had to send back for exchange. Performance was weak. Range was limited. It is way overpriced for what you get.

ReadyShare does not work.

  • Summary: ReadyShare just does not work well - very difficult to set up and they do not tell you that there are only very few drives that work - in addition, I bought one of the compatible drives, and it still does not work.

Great for a little while. Awful most of the time.

Christopher Dickey, Amazon

  • Summary: Great while it lasts. There are 2 known problems with this router. Problem one can be fixed if you're tech savvy. Problem 2 has no solution. Problem 1: Turning off the router via the switch, unplug, or power outage ruins the firmware. This turns your router into a really pretty brick.

Great while it works. Died for no reason. Rip-off tech support

  • Summary: I almost never write reviews whether the product is good or bad. But when the product fails barely entering the 9th month of service and support is near non-existent past 90 days without paying... yeah I'm writing a review. The router worked great before it died.

Keeps Bricking Each Time Power Cuts Out

N.Hugo, Amazon
16 June 2012
  • Summary: When it works, it works really well, with nice WiFi speeds and reliable connection. But it has a serious flaw, where if the power is cut abruptly, such as in a power outage, it tends to brick itself.

It works but gives me hell

Aldenone, Amazon
16 June 2012
  • Summary: It is not nearly as fast as promised, not even in the ballpark, and it behaves differently from PC to PC and never great, the transfer rates, both wireless and wired, fluctuates, sometimes wildly and forget about transferring substantial data to the USB storage connected to it via WiFi, just forget...

  • Summary: Awesome router WHEN IT WORKS; however, it STOPS WORKING after every little power outage, and you won't believe what it takes to get it running again!!! Here are excerpts from NETGEAR's Knowledge Base Doc I.D.

Router Crippled by Poor Firmware

Nuttycomputer, Amazon
16 June 2012
  • Summary: There is no denying that right now this router is the most robust soho router on the market with only the Asus RT-N66u as Comparison. However, and a big one, this router is absolutely CRIPPLED by the firmware offered by Netgear and is currently not supported by any well known 3rd parties.
