Happy with the router after the V1.0.0.34 firmware update

  • Summary: I have used many routers over the years my last 3 have been NetGear. I have gone from the Netgear WNDR3400 N600 Dual Band Wireless to the NETGEAR Wireless Router - N900 Dual Band Gigabit (WNDR4500) before having the opportunity to trying out the NETGEAR Centria: All-in-One Back-up, Media Server, N900 WiFi Router; 2TB version (WNDR4720) I did not expect much difference from my 4500 to the 4720 as far as connections go. I did not have issues with the setup.

Rough Setup for me, but it's working great now!

  • Summary: UPDATE: If you read the below review, you'll see that I had internet connectivity problems at first, although a call to tech support got things working. I have since purchased a new cable modem, and I changed the MTU back up to 1500 (see below for details). The router has had no problems at all with the new cable modem (Motorola SB6121) and has not lost connectivity or had to be rebooted.

NETGEAR WNDR4700 WiFi router

  • Excerpt: With a hard drive fitted it becomes an excellent media server which integrates well with wifi enabled devices throughout house. Great for viewing movies through WD TV device on TV. Some reviewers have reported that the fan is noisy, but no more so than the cooling fans on the PC and like those fans you become deaf to it after a short time. The setup wizard works well and easily found my internet connection and devices attached to the system.
  • Pros: Ease of setup and use, performance
  • Cons: When drive fitted it runs all the time, could do with a "sleep" type function to spin drive down when not in use

  • Summary: This is a delightful product all round and easy to set up. My only reservation is that I added a 3TB HD and the device sees it as only 2TB. Maybe a future firmware upgrade will resolve the issue.
