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.

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.

Summary: I purchased this router because of the favorable reviews, but it has a dark secret. I cannot get over 6mbps wireless rate!!! The rate drops randomly.

Pros: -Reasonable price
Cons: -Drops wireless MBPS for no reason. -Genie software is unnecessary. -Internal antenna is weak.
