This WNR1000v3 Router is not as fast as the previous v2 model, until you make a change to the default router setup.

Summary: When I bought the WNR1000v3 model, I expected it to be at least as fast as the WNR1000v2 model that I have been using for years. Not so. The v3 router is about 20% slower then the v2. I have changed settings on both the router and the adapter on my PC and nothing I have tried will bring the wireless mode up to the same speed as the wired connection. On the v2 model it would run at the same speed regardless of wired or wireless connection. UPDATE!
Excerpt: When i switched to comcast they jiggering the equipment to be compatible only with their own overpriced, add-on wireless router. i didn't know that and thought my existing router was no good. so i bought this one, but still had no wireless.Then i figured out what was going on. I gave the salesman a piece of my mind (what was left of it) and he came the next morning and personally reconfigured the modem.So thanks, comcast, for all the fun.
Excerpt: I own a Netgear G router and it has worked well for us, so I thought I was upgrading in getting a Netgear N router for my father. Got it hooked up just fine, but couldn't get on the internet. Spent close to an hour on the phone with his service provider and over 2 hours on the phone with Netgear and still couldn't connect to the internet.
Excerpt: The unit is fine if you only want a few people on it. It also will factor with who your internet provider is. In my case; its for work and their bandwidth stinks so it's not the greatest. (But yet, I don't want to spend good money on router and not be able to use the maximum bandwidth of it.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Highly Compatible, Secure, Small
Excerpt: I bought the router so my granddaughter could use her tablet while she was in town. From what I was told as far as intalling it would be very easy. It was not....I could not set up without getting all the IP numbers etc from my cable provider. Takes forever to get them ont he phone so I searched quite some time on the internet site for my cable provider. I input all the info it asked and it still did not work. I called Staples and asked what I was doing wrong.
