Summary: Western Digital need to stick to hard drives, whoever makes this for them isn't experanced enough. The unit never could be used as a router, access point was okay, but if you were trying to do hardwire and Wireless the unit has problems. This review is coming from a well experianced it consultant.
Summary: I love this router, I had an old linksys router before and it sucked ass but this one is no joke. I run my ps3 through it playing on line and especially using Netflix it loads up so much faster than before. I use the WiFi with my tablet devices and it loads up so fast. Can't go wrong here. Just imagine this is the entry level model, what are the more upscale WD router models like?
Summary: I actually bought the My Net n750 and My Net Switch through another retailer and since n750 is not offered at Amazon the n600 is the most similar. Besides a little more wireless power, extra usb port, 1000mb ports it is the same as the n600. I have a fairly large home network with 10 or more devices connected to it. I was using 3 different Linksys WRT wireless routers which could not keep up with prioritizing the internet traffic.
Summary: Title says it all - this was a breeze to get set up and I haven't had a moment's trouble with it. It does *everything* - has all the features I wanted, and then some. I love that it broadcasts a regular home network and a guest network - that has turned out to be much more useful than I had initially thought. Doesn't heat up like my old Linksys, and it's attractive! Well worth the money.
Summary: I bought this wireless router because the price was good comparing with other brands in the same class. I have been using it for more than a week and I love it. This router is extremely easy to setup and configure comparing with other brands that I have tried before. The user interface is also very clean and well designed.

Summary: I do a lot of IT work and often have to battle these consumer-grade routers throughout the course of my daily work. So I've used just about all of the major brands including Netgear, Dlink, and Linksys/Cisco. I always knew Western Digital to be in the hard drive business but I was surprised to see them building routers now too. On first look this device is pretty much the same as other routers in the price point.

Summary: My broadband is via Charter Internet (cable) and I've been happily using an older, vanilla, D-Link wireless router for a couple of years. My first concern when bringing up a new piece of equipment is always one of compatibility. This Western Digital My Net N600 unit plugged in and after a reboot of my systems, it was using my internet connection immediately with zero problems. Though the recommendation is to hook up your router by cable (included!
Wireless Crashed in 29 days... simply cannot recommend

Summary: I bought this router from another reputable electronics merchant 29 days ago. Having had Western Digital products in the past that have worked well for me, I decided to give them a chance in the router market even though they have never been in this marketspace before. Up until the product failed I had a mixed review going into today.
Summary: I've had this for a few days now and it's the easiest router I've ever set up. Both the 2.4 and 5Ghz are solid. I set up a hard drive from the USB on the router and all I had to do is plug the hard drive in and turn it on. My computers detected it with no problem(Win XP and 7). I stream Netflix from a Roku and I don't know how it prioritizes as my internet speed tends to not lag, but I haven't had any grainy images at all from the Roku.
