END 2011 UPDATE
* * GOT DROPPED SIGNAL? UPDATE THE FIRMWARE :) It's easy & cheaper than buying another router (& better for the environment). It may not work for everyone, but it worked for me, on my refurbished WNDR3300, well enough.
PRE-FIRMWARE UPDATE EXPERIENCE - (Highlights in CAPS or, skip down to the Summary if you'd like):
I've had this router for almost a year. When I purchased it, I was really the only one using the wi-fi (on a vostro laptop, running vista, and on a Nokia phone), my beau used the wi-fi rarely (on his latitude laptop, running xp, as well). It worked ok. Would drop signal every few hours on me (more or less) and a few times an hour for my beau. For me, the signal would return within a minute or so, for my beau it was a much more frustrating experience. Maybe that's why he rarely went online. A few months in, I bought a wi-fi-enabled canon PRINTER, I set it up, was concerned about the dual-band thing, but all went well. Works fine. A few months after that, we bought a WII (YAY!) it connected to the wi-fi fine, stayed connected for the most part, when needed. The router range seemed ok, but we were in a small house at the time. Then, we moved and just a few months ago, we signed up with NETFLIX (love it!), and a week later, we received a disc so we can stream TV shows & movies to our TV, via the wii. This is when we started to really notice problems with the connection. Maybe it's due to the energy star part of the technology?? The situation went from bad sometimes to terrible most of the time. I would reset the thing, mid-movie, over and over again, it was just awful, 90% of the time, the other 10%, it worked fine. Nothing's worse than getting really involved in a heart-wrenching movie about a young boy who runs the Boston Marathon, hoping a win will save his dying mom, just to be confronted with a still shot and a slowly-moving red "Retrieving" status bar, as he and one other runner race to the finish line. UGGGH! After a number of movie nights interrupted in this way, I decided it was time to buy a new router. I went on-line to do a little research and saw that others were having similar issues with this router, and someone mentioned a FIRMWARE UPDATE. I know how much FW updates have improved the function of my nokia phone, so I decided to try it. 2 stars, before update
POST-FIRMWARE UPDATE EXPERIENCE:
It was super SIMPLE, almost painless to do! You just go to the Netgear website, open the instructions and follow them. It includes going to your router's control panel, via your web browser and clicking something to the effect of 'update firmware'. It really was super easy. And it FIXES the problem! Well, the router does drop signal once in a while, but not nearly as much as it used to! I'd say this router was giving us problems 80% of the time, before the firmware update. Now, I'd say it gives us problems 10-20% of the time. Still not a 100% running router, but I already paid for it and it does have the cool dual-band feature (so I can run wi-fi N, and my beau and the rest of the house can run wi-fi g). In addition, as an extra measure of precaution, since it seemed from reading the reviews that the router's problem occurred when two or more things were wi-fi'ing on it, I hooked my laptop up to it via a CABLE. Have no problems with that connection, whatsoever! The printer, nokia phone, wii, and latitude, all seem to be utilizing the wi-fi 4 out of 5 stars. Note that this router does have the feature to NOT broadcast the SSID, so only those devices which already know the SSID, and enter it, can connect to it. I think that's a cool feature, good for privacy and security, I'm assuming. I tried to disable the SSID broadcast after the FW update, but my devices (or maybe it was end-user) had some issues reconnecting to the wireless network. I just re-enabled the SSID broadcast, put a little faith in my neighbors, and I was back, up and running in no time. 3.5 stars for working ok now, after extra work on my part
The router does get very hot on the bottom now. I used to keep it on a wirerack (never noticed it was getting hot, didn't check, either), but had moved it when I updated the firmware (finally had the free time to do so) and now, just to be cautious, I make sure it is never flat on a solid surface, like a shelf. It can stand vertical, but I don't know where the clip is for that, and with all the cables plugged into it, not sure how steady that would be. Dock a star for that, too. 3 stars, hot, but a lot of electronics do heat up
Also, the erratically flickering blue-disco-dome on the top is extremely annoying. Pre-FW upgrade, it used to turn itself back on, but after the FW upgrade, it behaves itself better. Note that the light is extremely bright and the flickering is, IMO, extremely annoying. If left on at night, the neighbors think there's some sort of rave going on at my house. it would have been better if they made it 'breathe' or steady, if they feel they need this light. 4 stars for insane design, with option to turn off
The router is on the third floor, in the extreme front of the house, most devices can catch the signal throughout the house. The dell latitude is hit or miss, when it's on the first floor, in the extreme back of the house. A central location would probably eliminate that, but I've already fiddled with this thing enough, and everything that physically plugs into it is on the 3rd floor. My other router was older, 802.11b/g and seemed to have a much longer range. 3.5 stars for range, without extensive comparison testing
If you're in the market for a new router, there are probably others that work better. If you already own this and hate it, (& like to save money) try updating the firmware before buying another router, but keep an eye on the temperature. For me, the update was an easy process, and brought the router from 20% working to 80-90% working. Good enough, and free. Stars average = 3.2
I rely on reviews here at Amazon to help me make informed buying choices. I hope this review has helped you in the same manner. If you voted this as helpful, I Thank You! :)
Then got a D-link dual n band. Also had this ethernet cable problem. Added the problem that my wireless devices would suddenly lose their secure connection and ask for me to re-enter my wpa key. This was VERY annoying.
Now got this netgear with low expectations since it was 1/2 the price of the others. On the down side, it does not have near as many configuration options as the d-link, and setting up my static ip computers and NAT tunnels etc was not as smooth. And there were arbitrary limitations, such as the inability to forward port 80 (for some reason they don't want you to do that). Another problem is the annoying lights on top that flash when the antennas are active, but you can turn that off py pressing down on the top dome (unfortunately they come back on every time you access the configuration page of the router)
BUT - it solved the other major problems I'd been having (dropped wired internet and dropped WPA keys). It has been running solid for around 2 weeks, no need to restart it, or any of the devices connected.
a couple macbook pros (wired and wireless)
ipad/ipod touch/iphone (wireless)
panasonic webcams (wired)
2 windows xp (wireless)
gaming adapter (converts wireless N signal to ethernet so older non-wireless emacs far away from cat-5 cables can connect to net)
ibook g3 (white) - web server port 80
Currently, no complaints... I just wish it were as fast as the Netgear WNDR-3700, though not sure how stable that model is.
The Irritating: AT LEAST twice weekly the router would crash, and would require a reboot cycle which also involved restarting the modem, and took about 10 minutes. The lights, seriously this thing is like a UFO. The central blue light is enough to light up our entire office. Toward the end of its life the power button broke, so I was stuck with this machines noxious light blinking and flashing.
The Bad: Wasted ~70 bucks of a router that I spent more time being irritated with, than enjoying, and had to replace in less than 3 months. I was so happy to break this router and throw it in the garbage.
Instead of giving this trashy router a 1 star rating, I was kind and gave it 2. I felt it deserved another star because of its decent performance in the short periods of operation between crashes.
