It would not maintain a connection with any of my devices

Summary: None of my devices would stay connected to it. I was very disappointed, b/c I had just had a router fail that was only a few months old, so I was trying to save money. Also, I had been told by my ISP that I needed to upgrade my modem to a DOCSIS 3.0 model. I had just bought the modem a few months back, and they didn't say anything about that when I told them I was buying a cable modem, since I was switching from DSL to Cable internet.
Summary: This is the 4th Netgear router that has stopped working in the same manner; two that I bought for home use, two that I bought for work use...also of note, all 4 were different Netgear models from very expensive to low end. All 4 stopped working just, or just after the one year warranty. This model purchased on Amazon 9/5/2013 just quit this weekend when I unplugged it while troubleshooting a slow wireless network.
Summary: I Request a RMA on this product as it does not connect to the internet unless it is connected to a modem, I believed that I could use this WNR directly to my House Jack and my PC to connect to the internet; Its Not compatable.

Summary: I had intermittent WIFI connections with this unit from day one. I set it aside and went back my my old router. Unit supposedly has a lifetime warranty. Support people say its due a level setting that needs to be changed but support expires after 90 days and they won't help to change it since it's now been six months since I purchased it. I'd rather hit my thumb with a hammer than buy any Netgear product again.
Summary: I installed this router and everything seemed OK. The internet worked, but the Netgear "Genie" software showed no internet connection and it prevented me from opening ports. I needed 3 ports open in order to view my security cameras. My last router of a different brand worked fine until it died. I figured Netgear was a good brand, so I bought this one. I contacted Netgear and spoke with a representative that had an accent that was hard to understand.
Summary: Stay away from this product. Longest I could get this thing to work was a couple days. I would have to do power cycle's every other day for this to continue to work. Lasted 2 months doing that till it stopped working all together. I guess you get what you pay for...
Summary: The router was great for the 4 months it worked. Now its junk. In my opinion spend a little more and get a non-refurbished router. From the ratings it seems you have about a 1/3 chance the router will crap out on you within 6 months.
Summary: This device is open to anyone who wants to use it in your neighborhood. Its not a secure device and I could not get it to close. Amazon gave me my money back for it and even they did not want it back.
