Style Name: Diskless
Length: 8:17 Mins
(Edit: I added a video showing some of the storage performance, (in the video I pretty much just copy large and small files back and forth to the router, in other words, 8:17 of boredom)

I used this router during a beta test and enjoyed every moment of using it.

The setup is extremely easy just like with all of their other routers using the netgear genie web UI, It simply auto detects everything and gets you online.
The stock security is also decent. They generally use a combination of multiple dictionary words and a random set of numbers at the end (unique to each router) While this is not as strong as using a full character space completely random password such as those generated by GRC, it beats what many other routers are doing to secure the users who cant be bothered to log into the webui and make things secure them self.

While to meet wifi alliance requirements, WPS has to be enabled by default, a workaround has been done to secure it. 3 failed WPS connect attempts, automatically disables WPS which makes the brute force vulnerability nearly impossible to execute.

Overall for the setup part, you can be sure that you will have decent security without having to change anything.

-------------------------

Now for the performance:

Wired connections LAN to LAN: UDP traffic goes at 990mbit+

Wired connection WAN to LAN: you get around 950mbit/s (though it slows over time).

Wireless speed are also really good.

Style Name: 2TB
I was part of the original team to help during the testing and development of this router so was free.

This router is a great router. It does 802.11N and has great range and performance on that part.

The router also features the ability to have an internal hard drive. I tested using the 2TB drive model.

I must say this has been the FASTEST NAS router/network hard drive I have ever used that was created for the consumer market.

Most network drives are slow, 30-40M tops, fall below network speeds. This thing often came in more than double that.

Another great feature... It has USB3... I don't know any other routers with that at the moment. Don't really have a use for it at the moment but I guess if you had USB3 external drive or flash drive you can share stuff that way.

Overall it's a great router, very stable, supper fast and user friendly.

My only complaint on it is that is not 802.11ac but that is a new technology and I think Netgear wanted to keep things that are stable and in final drafts vs new technology that is still changing.

For those worried about longevity of this thing, I have a feeling it will least well because it has a built in FAN to keep temperatures very cool and with recent firmwares it is nearly silent.

So if you are in the market for a wireless router, this is the way to go. The fact it can have a built in drive and features the ability to backup your PC and be remote media storage makes it blow the apple time capsule stuff out of the water in my eyes.

Style Name: Diskless Verified Purchase
I purchased this NetGear router to replace a 4-year old Linksys.

Initial thoughts:
1) Setup is generally easy, the menus are nice and self-explanatory
2) The guest network feature works well.
3) Have had no problems with throughput or wireless connectivity.

Cons:
1) The Netgear has a fan and it's not quiet. Generates more noise than my PC fan. It's very irritating.
2) The box is an odd shape and the cables attach in the side, not the back, so they're in the way.
3) The firewall features are limited. Defining rules is painful. Having more than a single rule is difficult, unless all the affected IP addresses in the rules are always the same. Firewall rules don't use MAC addresses, so you have to use DHCP reservation first, then create rules. Otherwise rules won't follow devices.
4) Whenever the device config is applied, Internet connectivity is lost, both wired and wireless. Time ranges from brief to multiple seconds, which is not helpful if you have an VOIP phone.
5) Logging function doesn't offer a means to sort log messages.

The Netgear offers nice specs and features. It needs some attention to the management aspects of the device.

And a quieter fan.

** Edit ** the fan noise is ridiculous. I will have to return this.

Hi CMR,

Thanks for your honest review and for your feedback on the management features of the router. We're always listening and will pass this on to our engineers. We're also concerned about the fan noise you mention and are wondering if this could be a hardware issue that needs to be investigated. Have you contacted our support team yet? They'll be happy to help investigate and determine if there is something that can be done or if a replacement is necessary.

They can be contacted at support.netgear.com.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

UPDATE: If you read the below review, you'll see that I had internet connectivity problems at first, although a call to tech support got things working. I have since purchased a new cable modem, and I changed the MTU back up to 1500 (see below for details). The router has had no problems at all with the new cable modem (Motorola SB6121) and has not lost connectivity or had to be rebooted. Still give it 4 stars only because of the hiccup with the interface at first and a slightly noisy fan (it's not obnoxious, but you can hear it in a quiet room). Otherwise, I am very satisfied with the device so far.

##### Original Review #####

Although a bit of a rocky start (see more below), the short summary of the Netgear Centria is that it has been running flawlessly over a week now, has a better range than my old router, my devices seem to be a bit faster, and I now have a storage drive accessible at all times on my network. Shortcomings include a rough setup and a noisy fan.

The long version (sorry for the length, but it may save someone from having to call tech support):

One of the things that attracted me to the Netgear Centria was the ability to add a hard drive of my choosing and have it as a network drive, accessible at all times. Like a lot of families today, the number of devices in my house have been expanding, and I was looking for a router with good range and fast speeds (my old router was N300 speed).

I took the router out of the box and followed the handy setup guide that is provided. Even the ends of the Ethernet network cable are marked to let you know which end goes to the router and which end goes to the modem (I have a cable modem).
