Summary: I purchased this router to replace my Netgear N300. I was under the impression that this router with three external antennas and its claim to be faster being a 450N router would be an upgrade. I also expected its range to reach my upstairs room. I placed the router in the same identical spot as my old router and this router simply under performs . The range was much less and the speed was cut in half. Where I would get 75% signal I only received a 45-50% signal.
Summary: All that is needed in a wireless router; I am able to turn WPS on for NetFlix and off when not using it (and switch to WPA2) and this is of significant security importance in today's world. No need to spend twice as much on a N900 or 50% more on a N600! This does all I want it to (including decent gaming) at a good price, No wonder neither my local Bestbuy nor Frys carry it - lol!
Summary: I have never used a wireless router before and am more than satisfied with my NETGEAR N450 WiFi Router. I had an old Linksys router that met with an accident so I needed a new router. I am so very happy with this router. I downloaded the NETGEAR genie and love it. It was very easy to set up this router. It works perfectly with my Amazon Kindle which I use constantly.
Summary: Works great. The only thing I would change is to make it optional to have to use the password to sign in with laptops, and I pads etc. At least if you want to block the signal you can but if you don't want to you can shut off that feature.
