Piece of S***.

Reviewer, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: Never ever am I buying NETGEAR again. First day: worked for 1 minute until it prompted to upgrade firmware. Firmware update failed (there were no interruptions on my side). It was corrupted and only green light is blinking indicating it's DEAD. I paid dollars for a brick that doesn't work.

Worked fine, until Netgear broke it! Now it's a brick.

  • Summary: I didn't buy this on Amazon, but I am so mad at Netgear and their so-called support that I am writing this review to let people know what they might be in for if they buy any of their products.

The most dissapointing hardware I have bought in a decade

Your Pen Name, Amazon

  • Summary: I made the mistake of buying this off the shelf at an electronics store instead of researching online as I usually do. I assumed that, between the netgear brand, and the age of networking technology, this wasn't worth the bother - I should be happy with what I get. The OS is obtuse and full of bugs.

NETGEAR routers- no customer support

John S. Smith, Amazon
13 November 2011
  • Summary: I have purchased a Netgear WNR3500. Biggest mistake ever. Less than 2 months later, while the router was auto-updating the firmware it got bricked. For some reason it won't come out of the "no connectivity" loop.

How did this thing ever get through Quality Control?

  • Summary: If zero stars was permitted, that's what it would get. Oh sure... it sets up easily, but then it doesn't work. The wireless connection drops out for no reason, but this is nothing compared to its super-slow throughput. Cheaper routers give me 14-15Mb/s download on my cable internet.

A real disappointment

The Dude Abides, Amazon
22 June 2009
  • Summary: This router was pretty easy to set up. The problems include slow wireless speeds and a MAJOR compatibility issues with items such as bridges/AP's. My previous and much older Linksys G router was faster and was compatible with other items.

Not as good as it should be

warder, Amazon
29 October 2008
  • Summary: This router sounded like it should do everything I wanted. High speed, provides QOS, many antennas should give good range, etc. Unfortunately it fails to deliver. Not that the features aren't there, they are, but it appears to be plagued with several issues: - The primary issue is that the wireless...

Not worth the cost

  • Summary: I purchased these 2 units 5/30/2008 and now it's 10/5/2008 and the wireless has stopped working altogether. If you don't believe me, please go to the Netgear support forum to see all the people who has the same problem.

Suitable only for light usage

Mike W, Amazon
29 October 2008
  • Summary: Bought this for a small office. We host a mail server and VPN server and use a moderate amount of bandwidth. This router cannot handle it. With the firewall enabled, it simply gets overwhelmed and will crash or reset the WAN every hour or so.
