Netgear has released firmware updates to no avail.
David Spinnenweber
The main problem is that it constantly drops connection and has to be rebooted to reconnect.
EJ
True to recommendations, the Linksys router is very easy to set up and worked well.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Update Oct 21, 2011: At the one month mark, this router has been functioning without reboots/restarts/drops in a house full of network bandwidth hungry clients - still @ FW 1.0.0.18. I've even forgotten that I swapped routers - the true test of a good invisible appliance :)

Update Oct 03, 2011: While I have not encountered any problems, there are complaints about the 1.0.0.18 firmware dropping wireless connections in 2.4GHz 802.11n mode and with DNS issues that require reboots of the router. A 1.0.0.19-DNS beta update has been released to fix the latter problem.

###############

In a span of about 6 months, Netgear has released the WNDR4000, the WNDR3800, and the WNDR4500. Unfortunately, unlike most normal product naming schemes, higher model numbers do not necessarily translate into more functionality.

For instance, the WNDR3800 will have a greater impact on my own home network simply because:
1. Most of my devices (incl. consoles and media devices) use the 2.4GHz spectrum (where Clear Channel helps).
2. Most of my needs center around media streaming (where video mode helps).

So how does it perform?
################
I ran some benchmarks using iPerf between two computers, connected wirelessly on the 2.4GHz band. Impressively, the WNDR3800 gave me a constant throughput of about 24 to 26 Mbps.

inSSIDer also indicates that with the WNDR3800's amplifiers, my RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) amplitude is at least 10dB better than when using my WNDR3700.

In real world tests - streaming Netflix and other content was great on all my media devices.

Enumerating the Pros:
###############

1. Easy install.

Ok to start with, This WNDR3800 is replacing my WNDR37AV. Prior to that, I had a variety of wireless routers such as the Netgear WNDR3700, Linksys WRT54G, a couple of DLinks and others either at home or in an "unsupported" configuration at work. Not saying I'm a guru, but I do have some router experience.

My network devices consist of 2 wired computers, a TCP/IP printer, 3 wireless security cameras, two Wireless laptops, an Iphone, an external USB drive for filesharing/DLNA and a wireless DLNA LED TV. I also have Vonage for my home phone which is an IP phone service that needs an internet connection so the 2 wired computers, printer, and IP phone occupy the 4 LAN ports on the router.

I like the new GUI on the 3800. There are two main tabs (Basic and Advanced). When comparing directly to the WNDR37xx, the new GUI is more intuitive. If you simply need to connect a wireless laptop, smartphone or a readyshare device, you might find all you need under the Basic tab. The Basic settings are going to get your router talking to your ISP, set up your wireless SSID's and security, show you a list of attached devices, allow you to set up parental controls, configure the readyshare (including the new readyshare "cloud"), and set up your guest network.

The Basic tab has a "Home" button which give you a graphical menu to get to the other pages and shows some basic infomation such as "Internet-Status: Good" This is a great quickview dashboard for the status of your routers' functions and lets you see at a glance if and where there might be a problem.

Verified Purchase
The current firmware (1.0.0.18) appears to be broken. It regularly drops wireless connections, or worse - keeps your wireless device connected to the router, but with no connectivity to the internet or the rest of your network. Netgear appears to know about this issue (see their support forums: search for the thread "Lost Internet Connection Issues with 3800"). Very disappointing to have a wireless router that can't perform its most basic function correctly. Will update this review if a firmware fix comes out before my return period is over.

UPDATE: Tried the V1.0.0.19-DNS firmware, which can be found in the comments. Kudos to Netgear for the responsive support. The -19 firmware is not a complete fix, however. While the connection to the router appears to be solid, I still experience internet dropouts on my wireless devices. These dropouts usually recover after a few seconds. This is an improvement over the -18 firmware, which could only be fixed with a power cycling or reboot of the router, but still not acceptable. Love the feature list of this router, but the features need to work... If you are looking to purchase this router, you might want to wait until it is a little more mature. After some additional research, this isn't the first Netgear router to have these kinds of issues.

This wireless router is plagued with problems from random disconnects, rebuffering issues with Netflix, Reduced range on 5 Ghz as compared to the WNDR3700 v1, DNS problems, and loss of WIFI signal on 2.4 Ghz. In addition, Netgear Genie and print server are not ready for prime time when used with an Apple Mac. Buy something else rather than waiting 2 years for Netgear to make this one work...if ever. As far as Netgear support, it is offshore and lacking, and Netgear has no real interest in the satisfaction of the end user. Keep in mind that the problems with this router are firmware related, calls to tech support will be of no help, and Netgear has a poor track record in getting firmware fixes up quickly (see my comments below on the WNDR3700 v1). They will leave you plagued with problems and move on to new product development. If someday Netgear makes me change my mind about their concern for the end user, I will be glad to update this review. In the meantime look at competitor products, and reviews prior to purchase. Please keep in mind that Netgear firmware release (1.0.0.25 Beta) for this model does not fix its many issues, and it took Netgear 2 years to produce a workable firmware for the WNDR3700 v1 and it still has bugs. This router is based on the WNDR3700 v2 platform, that still until today is plagued with problems (the WNDR3800 is a 3700 v2 with added memory) I think Netgear does not appreciate how hard many of us work for our money, and how during these tough economic times we cannot afford to spend our hard earned cash on poor performing products that become "our problem". I feel I lost on this one. Trust me I rarely write a poor review of a product, but I hope for others not to feel my pain, and a smaller bank account after making this purchase.Read more ›
