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.Read more ›
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.
##### 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).Read more ›
