Good reliable Modem and Router
on July 30, 2013
I was hesitant about buying this router as there are several bad reviews regarding the wireless signal. I found one used for 35$ so I bit the bullet and purchased anyway. I am replacing my Time Warner Cable Modem as they just increased the leasing fees. I planned on only using the modem functionality of this device, and use my existing wireless router as I thought the wireless on the Netgear would be horrible.
I ended up setting up and using the wireless on the CG3000d because of two reasons
1. The button on the front of the device to turn the wireless radio "off" does not work so I am unable to turn off the wireless signal anyway
2. The wireless signal from the Netgear cg3000d is great in my location/(smaller house 2000 sq ft)
Easy setup with TWC. A 10 minute phone call
Im getting my advertised speeds of 20 Mbps down and 2 up from the modem and router.
No dropouts over the last 4 days Ive had it.
I stream Amazon VOD over ps3(wireless). Works great
Online gaming with PS3 wireless works great.
Lots of options in the admin menu
Cant turn off the wireless radio.
No option to upgrade firmware from what I can tell in the admin section
