not good for watching videos.

Rachel, Amazon
31 May 2015
  • Summary: Works fine for me, but my husband has trouble when watching Netflix. He has his computer plugged direction in so he doesn't use the wifi, but it still somehow messes with the video and causes a fuzzy image and weird popping sounds. We disabled the wifi on his computer but it still does it.

Use as an AP

Goodhelp "DEF", Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: In trying to expand my wireless LAN network into an area that is not getting a consistent strong signal I followed the directions Netgear provides for creating an AP. Doing so produced only an marginal signal boost and did provide a convenient switch for more devices.

Bad Firmware

Patrick T., Newegg
8 January 2014
  • Summary: Found a working and stable DD-WRT that has not resulted in the flashing green light. Yes there is a working DD-WRT even though the site says WIP (Work In Progress). 4 Beta's and one stable. Keep looking, you will find it.
  • Pros: Speed, Printshare, ReadySHARE Cloud, etc, etc.
  • Cons: Firmware corrupts causing Green Light of death, which results in having to reinstall the firmware only to result in the flashing green light after a few days.

Great when it works

David D., Newegg
7 January 2014
  • Pros: Fast and simultaneous dual band. A lot of bells and whistles. Netgenie is fairly helpful for novice people and for pros.
  • Cons: This router drops signal quite often. Then the minute you lose power or have to reset the router, the firmware becomes corrupted and you have to go through this whole reinstallation of the firmware. I'm getting so used to it that it is becoming second nature now. Netgear support is horrible and w...

Connection drops out frequently

Christopher P., Newegg
30 December 2013
  • Pros: Ability to setup networked HDDs; solid data sharing "Cloud" capability
  • Cons: Drops connections... I 'upgraded' from a Netgear WGR614v10 Wireless-G router so I could take advantage of the dual-band support and setup some shared drives. This router frequently drops connections to many of our devices throughout the house (tablets, phones, BD players). Our LG BD player has st...

Good and Bad

Lance M., Newegg
22 November 2013
  • Summary: If you never have a power failure in your house, or you very un-often change your settings that require a reboot of the router, then this thing is very fast. Thank goodness I keep a spare NETGEAR ProSafe VPN Firewall FVS318 (has one bad port out of 8, gonna have to RMA that some time, but it...
  • Pros: -Excellent WiFi range on 2.4 GHz, darn near to the end of the city block. -I like the interface to this router. -Nice footprint, though I wish I could hang it on the wall. -No external antennas.
  • Cons: -Poor WiFi range on 5.0 GHz, maybe 20-25 ft. -Nearly every time you power cycle this router, no matter if by the power button OR even REBOOT from being logged into the router, the power led flashes amber and the firmware becomes corrupted. Intermittently starts good if I leave it unplugged for a ...
