Summary: I had a Linksys router that I constantly had to reset. I run a hostel and my hiker guests all have smartphones nowadays and this became a hassle resetting. With this netgear router right out of the box it worked flawlessly. There wasn't even a setup process in default, which was what I needed and everyone is happy. If you have a small office or a large house I'd recommend.
Pros: Has not dropped a signal since purchased 2 yrs ago. I live in a 5-bedroom house with 2 Laps, Dsktop, Printer/Scanner, X-box, and PS3 connected. Initial set-up was easy and Security was through. Running File Share between Dsktop and Laps.
Cons: Firmware V1. This WNR3500 is V2. Anybody have a suggestion besides contacting Netgear?
Excerpt: This is a cool addition to my 1000/100/10 network adapter. It is fast to connect wireless devices. It has a nice set of security. I like netger's reputation as a good company. This has dual band connection too. I would recommend this to anyone. I like the fast connect button that you don't need the password just push a button on the router to automatically connect devices wirelessly to the network. And you just log-in to the internet to change the settings of the router.
Excerpt: I was looking for a way to get my whole house set up for wirless internet without spending a bundle. I found this router and the salesman at Best Buy told me it would be easy and it was only $80. I took it home and read the instructions and then installed it using my existing internet service equipment. The entire set up took about 20 minutes and it covers the entire first floor of my home, since I have a ranch home with only one level it was perfect. I run my Wii,...

Summary: I had a 5 year old Belkin that was working fine for me for most things. But I noticed over the last few months we had trouble loading games and timing out on XBOX Live and other work files I was having to upload were slow. A little research and I cam up with the newer Netgear series. Dropped right into place, ran the wizard, restarted my cable modem and things were quite a bit different.
