Not Much Difference

Roger N. Bryan, Amazon
6 December 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the Netgear WNR3500 router to replace a Netgear WGR614 (802.11g) router that had been in service since 2004.

Anonymous, Newegg
27 January 2009
  • Summary: I spent the last month working with Netgear tech support because the router could not acquire an IP address via DHCP from my cable modem. After going through the same steps multiple times with 1st level support techs, I was able to RMA router and issued a replacement. Same problem with replacement.
  • Pros: Gigabit ports, setup wizard, great throughput when functional.
  • Cons: Possible line negotiation issues with DOCSIS cable modems. 1st level tech support outsourced and repetitive with troubleshooting.

Great wireless router but not stable

Peter W., Newegg
9 December 2008
  • Summary: The WNR2000 seems to have much better reviews then this unit, it might be a better choice and cheaper price also as long as you don't require gigabit connections.
  • Pros: Gigabit, wireless-N, built-in functionalities, price.
  • Cons: Router hangs from time to time, even after updating to the latest firmware. Have to reboot the router from time to time.

  • Summary: This router worked fantastic with my comcast cable internet for about a week, then my internet connection was going down every 5 minutes. After a call to support (who are pretty much essentially not helpful), and a call to comcast, I ended up isolating the issue.
