Do NOT try to use this as a repeater!

Chris, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very good router with good range and a decent feature set once DD-WRT is installed. Aside from a few minor hiccups, I never had an issue with it in the capacity as a main router.

it does fine if QoS is disabled

Eugene S. Ellison, Amazon
18 November 2015
  • Summary: I am using this router as my WAN interface and DHCP only. The wireless is disabled to give it as much processing power as possible. With this router, connected to a 100 Mbps WAN circuit, it does fine if QoS is disabled. If the QoS routine is enabled, it slow this router to about a 50 Mbps speed.

but this one is just not quite as good as previous items I've used of this brand

Bryan, Amazon
17 November 2015
  • Summary: I'm a fool for netgear products, but this one is just not quite as good as previous items I've used of this brand. Mainly, I think, because it seems to have trouble working with Windows 8. Trying to connect to the web app of the unit via wifi is very slow and extremely frustrating.

If you want an open source router, give this a shot!

David A. Resnik, Amazon
3 December 2012
  • Summary: I was very dissappointed in Netgear routers, having 'worn out' three in less than a year, in my new digs. I read the reviews and purchased an extended warranty for this one. My first week was hell with my ISP Cox Cable, until I took the time to download and install the latest Tomato open source...

Wireless Repeater mode does not work

Richard D Cuthill, Amazon
2 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the router to use as a wireless bridge to connect it wirelessly to my Verizon (actiontec) router connecting to the internet. I have some Ethernet wired devices in an area I do not want to run Cat5. The WNR3500L has four LAN ports so it all seemed a good fit.

Always a risk with refurb

Jazzdude00021, Amazon
16 August 2012
  • Summary: The router itself was fine. It came well packaged and arrived on time. Once I got it out and running the wifi worked very well for about 24 hours then it would intermittently drop the connection to the Internet. The only solution was to reboot the router.

Not as good as I'd hoped...

Tim Cozad, Amazon
12 August 2012
  • Summary: This router isn't too bad of a router and is worth the price in the end for a refurbished product. Generally it allows my Internet connection to stay pretty fast, however I bought this router for online gaming on my playstation and I can't seem to get it to keep a consistent high connection.

Great router, did not achieve desirable downlink speed

confused engineer, Amazon
27 March 2012
  • Summary: Great router. Factory firmware stable, fast, good. Updated to Tomato via DD-WRT updater. DD-WRT looked and worked great for the short time it lived on this router. Tomato and DD-WRT achieved the same downlink speeds as factory FW.
