Summary: Very upset with Netgear on this one. Their 54GL has worked great for years. My old Buffalo gets the full b speeds, testing out at over 25mbps, which exceeds my advertised speeds.
Pros: Gigabit works...
Cons: Wireless networking does not work in N mode (150 mbps) or g mode (54mbps), instead, you must turn off n mode, and then you get b speeds (11mbps). Curiously, you can get two devices connected both downloading at this speed. Also curiously, you can get b speeds with local traffic (streaming from on...
Summary: I bought the Netgear N300 Router thinking that it would be a great product by a good company. Initially, the hookup was easy because it's a plug and play unit, and it worked as expected. However, a huge problem arose with the Netgear Genie software download for utilizing the extra features.
Summary: While this did serve as a decent router for a short amount of time, I do reside in an apartment where the network traffic is fairly high and interference is ridiculous. There are also approximately 4-7 devices connected to this router at any given time during the day.
Pros: While functioning properly, it gives a fairly decent network speed multiple devices. Easy setup.
Cons: After about six months, wireless connections would constantly drop multiple times throughout the day. If the wireless network wasn't dropping, it would instead restart itself. I'm extremely disappointed with how this product turned out, and even more frustrated by the fact that I've made the poor...
Summary: Haven't been able to test out gigbit yet, waiting to get another computer in here. If THAT doesn't work, I'm returning this and getting a 54GL.
Pros: It isn't crashing/disconnecting all the time
Cons: Will not work wirelessly in n mode (145 and 300 mbps) giving download speeds of only a few dozen kB/s. Curiously, the LAN works at speeds of 1 MB/s in n mode (this is still ridiculously slow), so it must be a firmware issue. Confirmed that many people have this issue.
