Dedicated Video Network and Video Mode

The WNDR37AV optimizes your multimedia experience by creating a dedicated video network, so you can stream video on one network while surfing the internet on the other network.

A video mode optimizes your HD video stream to reduce glitches and stutter.

Powerful 680 MHz Processor for Outstanding Performance

Dual-Band Wireless and Gigabit Ethernet for Fast Speed

Whether you want the convenience of a wireless connection or the security of a wired connection, the WNDR37AV provides the speed you need for streaming HD video and gaming. It operates simultaneously on both the 2.4-GHz frequency and the less congested 5.0-GHz frequency, giving you the fastest throughput performance available. The result is a combined 600 Mbps speed, with real throughput of over 350 Mbps over your wireless network. Eight ultra-sensitive internal antennas--with dedicated antennas for each band and efficient power amplifiers--offer great wireless range for more freedom. Connect not only your notebook computers, but also wireless printers and networked home-theater devices such as Blu-ray players, HDTVs, TiVO/DVRs, and more.

For users who want the security of a wired connection, the WNDR37AV features four gigabit Ethernet ports for ultra-fast wired speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps. Wired connections are ideal for transferring large HD video files and gaming that demands the highest-quality connection.

Smart Wizard and Push 'N' Connect for Easy Setup

The NETGEAR Smart Wizard tells you in clear, easy-to-understand language and graphics how to set up your network. And when it's time to add new devices to your network, the system's Push 'N' Connect--using the industry-standard WiFi Protected setup (WPS)--securely connects them with the touch of a button.

Enterprise-Class Wireless Security and Guest Network

The WNDR37AV features enterprise-class wireless security that includes WPA and WPA2 enterprise encryption, denial-of-service (DoS) and stateful packet inspection (SPI) firewall. Multiple SSID support adds another level of security by letting you set up a second network for guests with restricted access to the local network.

Live Parental Controls and Guest Network Access

Prevent your children from accessing unsafe websites with Live Parental Controls that allow you to set flexible, custom filter settings. You can also easily set up a guest network with separate security and access restrictions.

ReadyShare for Fast Backup and Storage

It's easy to add an external USB storage device that everyone on your network can access. Simply connect your storage device to the USB port of the WNDR37AV, and with the NETGEAR ReadyShare feature, every computer on your network can access the device to exchange documents, music, and more. ReadyShare is fast, supports a wide range of file formats, and offers simple plug-and-play performance.

Broadband Usage Meter Summarizes Your Bandwidth Usage

The WNDR37AV also features a Broadband Usage Meter, which offers daily, weekly, and monthly download and upload reports with customized alerts, giving you an accurate measurement of your bandwidth usage.

NETGEAR Wireless Router for Video and Gaming
Offering a combined speed of 600 Mbps, the WNDR37AV is ideal for gaming or streaming HD video.

Going Green: Energy-Efficient Power Supply and Controls

A convenient, one-touch, on/off switch and Wi-Fi button conserves energy by giving you the ability to quickly power down the WNDR37AV when it's not in use. It also features transmit-power control that helps reduce energy consumption up to 75 percent, depending on the power level selected. An auto-sensing gigabit 'green' switch automatically adjusts the power level.

Introduction
This is my third router in 5 years. I upgrade when the technology takes a jump or when I start to see a lot of network outages or both. This time I replaced a router that was 802.11n but it was not dual band (netgear 3500 series). I used the 3500 about 2.5 years and I was starting to see more and more network outages. Maybe because the router was getting old or maybe because I'm starting to add more devices to my network and it simply could not handle the traffic. Currently I have the following equipment on my wireless network: (1)Desktop, 2(laptops),(1)iPhone4, (2)iTouch, (2)Sony PS3, (1)Kodak Digital Picture, (2)Flat Panel TV's streaming video. I also support a number of devices wired directly to my router including: (1)Desktop, (1)Network Printer, (1)AT&T 3G Microcell, (1)Synology NAS, (1)Sonos Bridge, (1) Vonage Device. So, I have many devices trying to communicate through my router.

Router Review
Installation was a snap. Out of the box, follow the quick install guide. Power off modem, connect router to modem, connect computer to router, power on modem (2 minutes), power on router (2 minutes), power on computer (2 minutes). Type in [...] to access router. Default configuration will get you online. Have the router check for firmware updates with the netgear website. If there are any upgrades available, download and install. I always change the router password from default. Setup wireless network both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. I named them both the same and added a 5G to the 5GHz band :). Setup security preferences (WPA2-PSK [AES] for me) , type in passphrase (network password). Done.

I use my Synology NAS as an ftp server that can be accessed from outside my home network so I had to setup some port forwarding.

This router is amazing. It took me 20 minutes to setup because i had to power cycle it after the firmware upgrade. I actually called Netgear and had them walk me through the process even though it was very simple. The had me set it up from the GUI instead of the CD. After setting it up, I noticed a drastic increase in my speeds. My Desktop has never loaded web pages so fast. I decommissioned my 4 year old Linksys wrt54g version 6. I found myself rebooting my Linksys every 3 months and after my support was no longer free, Linksys tried charging me $30 just to talk to their tech support. I googled the issue and figured out how to reset it each time. Anyways, enough about the old and slow Linksys. With the WNDR37AV, you have many different options on how you want to setup your network. The security features are great and I actually connected my external Western Digital 500gb HDD and it picked it up right away. I can view the files from my laptop and my desktop with ease. It also gives you the ability to access your files from any where in the world via HTTP or FTP. The technician I worked with told me not to use FTP because it would be slow. UPS just delivered my D-Link 321 NAS and the NetGear tech told me to call back and they would help me setup my NAS to work correctly with the router. How sweet is that. Just get the router. PLEASE make sure you purchase the WNDR37AV and not the WNDR3700. The WNDR37AV is an upgrade to the WNDR3700 because the 3700 has a few bugs that could not be fixed with a firmware upgrade. The 37AV has all of the new and upgraded features. Thats a poor way for Netgear to do business because all of the 3700 owners are stuck. I bought my WNDR37AV from Best Buy but do not call them. Just go to the store and search for it in the Router area.Read more ›

We just switched from DSL to Cable. I wanted to just have one cable through the wall in the Living Rm. This router was perfect. Wired it to our RoKu, PopBox, and Diretv DVR. Placed a 1.5TB USB Hard Drive at the Router's USB input as a Network Drive (Z). Then the Computors are Wireless N so the speed is fine.
I do notice N band drops off after 30 to 35' in signal compared to the G band using inSSIDer program (Free download)
We also have a WII connected wirelessly at the other end of the house in the basement Playroom. It is on G Guest. We stream NetFlixs on it without a problem.
So it fills our needs just fine. Haven't had to do any reboots yet with the cable modem or the router.

The bottom says it's 3700 as others have mentioned.
***************************************************************

{{UPDATE 10/6/10}}

I removed two stars because of the problem below!!!
The router works fine, it's the "REGION" that is the problem....

I found in the setup that the "REGION" is set for Africa!
I am dealing with NetGear to fix this as they tell me

1. You cannot change the Region, it's built in the core.

2. It affects any Firmware and warranty issues.

Amazon doesn't seem concerned because all they will do is give me a refund and I can order a new one. OK, How do I know Amazon will send a router with USA as the Region? Huh!

So now I have emailed Netgear and have told them what Amazon's atitude is about the problem. Who knows how many of these "AFRICA" routers Amazon is selling here in the States?
