Summary: Mine lasted a whole year, WOW! Take the time to read through the other reviews before you waste your hard earned cash on this product. I think my next router will be anything but a netgear, this is my third different netgear router and WILL BE MY LAST!
Summary: This router had pretty strong signal, but after about one year it started to drop the wireless connections every hour or so. Then after a few more agonizing weeks it died completely, with the power light being on, but nothing else working.
Summary: Less than 6 months of use and the power adapter goes nuts, starts making loud noises, and heating up. Went out and bought a D-Link router and have had no issues thus far. Customer support for Netgear was literally zero help when it came to getting me a replacement power supply.
Summary: The wireless part stopped working after 3 years. Maybe for some people that's expected lifetime but I have wireless routers that are from 2003/2004. For the record I'm an experienced tech and tried different to reboot, re-flashed, reconfigured (tried changing channels, etc) still to no avail...
Summary: The router works fine, when it works. My problem is that when the router re-boots, for example after a power outage, it changes it's default ip address from 192.168.1.1 to 10.0.0.1 Trying to use customer service is a nightmare. If they understand you, they simply follow a script about hard reset.
