Summary: For only 30 euro (40$ +/-) I bought this router and powerline combo. To feel up a dead spot in the living room. The routers wireless connection is not very fast and the reach is not very far, but good and stable enough when you got enough reach. This routers power-line adapter is compatible whit my power-line adapter network that contains two TP-Link TL-PA210 and a TP-Link TL-PA511.
Incompatible with NETGEAR XAVB101 Powerline AV Ethernet Adapter Kit

Summary: I was trying to get an accessory to go with my existing NETGEAR XAVB101 (powerlineAV 200 line) which has worked really well for me. Too bad that this product N300 Wireless Router with Built-In Powerline AV (WNXR2000), doesn't seem to work with "newer" powerline adapters. The documentation with the router says nothing about compatibility with other netgear stuff.
Summary: We live in Mexico for much of the year and the houses are constructed of cement block, killing any chance of getting a wireless signal to adjancent floors. We tried several solutions, but this was the only one that worked. It is easty to setup and we now have a wireless signal on both floors of the house, all without wiring.
Summary: I got this to replace an old Linksys. The performance has been very good except for some issues were WPS timeouts caused iOS devices to not be able to connect. As of January 2013, the latest firmware update has corrected the last bugs. I am happy with this unit.
Summary: Purchased on 2/21/12 and threw away on 5/28/2012. For whatever reason it would constantly drop the connection between the cable modem and the router. Got sick and tired of restarting both devices and rebooting my laptop each time I wanted to access the internet, and even that wasn't a guarantee. Guess I got what I paid for.
Summary: I have one piece of advice for those who need routers. STAY AWAY FROM NETGEAR! The N300 is a poor product and Netgear is a very poor company. I had difficulty setting this router up initially. After being on the telephone with technical support for about an hour, I finally got it to work. During the first three months, it gave me nothing but problems. It continued to cut in and out, losing signal going to my computers (all five of them).
Summary: I had the device for less than 2 days and the wireless will not turn back on. I spent over an hour on the phone with Netgear support and after all of that they said it would cost me $29 to ship it back and then they would ship me a replacement. The powerline portion worked great but that is only half the problem.
Spent hours with tech support and it still doesn't work right!!!

Summary: I have only given a 1 star on a review once before, but this product has given me so much trouble that I felt I should give a heads-up to others who may be thinking about this router. I spent several hours trying to get it to work and at long last, am able to get it to work for short periods before it drops me. It also wouldn't connect to my Cannon wireless printer.
Summary: I already bought an N300 router a while ago (version 2; this one is version 3), and to be honest I really only wanted the XAVP1000 adapter plug, as it works with the router I have. I wish Netgear would just sell the adapter so that I didn't have to buy another router that I didn't need (although I suppose it could always be a spare if my present router ever dies). Anyway, because I'd already set up my previous router on my network, I literally had to make no changes.
