Summary: I gave this 3 stars - that might not be a fair rating, but it reflects my experience. I suppose this would be OK for a DSL user. I moved berfore getting to use it on DSL, and am now on Cable modem service.
Excerpt: As both Linksys and Netgear change their user interface to I guess what is suppose to be something "easier", they have actually become very annoying. The router offers what it advertises. I am not a fan of today's routers auto-configuring all the wireless options for me.
At least i have not had to constantly reboot this router like I have had to do with many of the ...

Summary: The web gui is limited in features. there is no single quick way to add MAC address filters without writing down the MAC address first and entering manually. Some routers have a feature where you can go to attached wireless devices click the mac and add to mac filter list. not this one.
Summary: I can't imagine that setting up a router could be easier. In that sense, this is as good as you can get. I would rate the signal strength as average; if there are lots of walls between you and the router, you may find a reduced signal is the norm. For more open spaces, it's fine.
Excerpt: I've had this for over 3 weeks now. Installation was easy and signal strength was good, even at the other end of my house...60+ feet away , where I usually sit with my tablet/laptop. One evening I was using my tablet. I set it down for a while and when I picked it back I had no WiFi.
Summary: This is not for a non tech person. The current router is version 4, this one is version 3 which does not run their user friendly interface program called Genie. It comes with no documentation. There is no instructions other than to connect to the Netgear site for instructions.
Excerpt: I live in a one level 1900 SF condo. The router is near the center in an in-wall communications box. It barely sends a signal to the bedrooms at the far ends of the place. I don't believe the built in antennae is as good as the external versions.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Secure Connection
