I've been using routers for several years now. This is probably my 4th router. I usually go with Netgear, and with good reason. They usually work well and don't constantly need to be reset. However, I have had issues with one router in the past. Now that I have used this router for slightly over a year, I decided to write a review about it.
First off, the ease of setup is remarkable. You take it out of the box. You put the cd disc in, it shows you the step by step process, and now you are done. Ready to go. I have mine hooked up to Clear, which is a 4G network.
I have multiple laptop users in the house, as well as a Wii and a ps3. The router works well for every system. I haven't had issues with losing connection with my video games, nor have I experienced inability to detect network from the laptops. Lastly, some routers need to be constantly reset because the signal fades in and out. With this router, I haven't experienced that yet (knock on wood).
Basically, I just wanted to write a quick review that allows others to know what success I have had with this router after a year and change. Out of the many options, it is one of the better ones. Good luck
Setup of NetGear routers (including this one) is simple and easy. There are two methods of setting it up, using the Wizard CD or going in manually. For users not too familiar with setting up wireless networks or routers, using the CD to get started is a good option. More seasoned users may prefer to work without the CD and work directly with the router. I chose the latter of the two. Even so, tapping in and finding any given setting is relatively easy, everything broken down into several pages. Because the router configuration is accessed through a browser, manipulating the router configuration is very much like accessing a web page and should feel familiar.
The factory-default username, password, and access address are printed right on the router itself so there is no risk of losing this information at any point.
I connected 3 laptops, one at a time, to the wireless network and encountered my only difficulty with moving to this router. Because I retained the network name and key I expected the swap to be seamless and mostly invisible, but my systems each complained when tried to connect, stating that the network configuration had changed even though I retained the settings, the type, key and everything else.Read more ›
Connect your PC to the router (hard wire) and type [...] on a browser, login ID is admin, password is password, from there you can configure the whole router to your hearts content.
when you first log in, it will check for any updates to the firmware, DO NOT UPGRADE TO 220.127.116.11, stay with 18.104.22.168 that's currently loaded on there, its far more stable and reliable, you can uncheck the "check for new version" box so this doesnt bother you again.
i made the mistake of upgrading to 22.214.171.124, my 5ghz band was incredibly unstable and died every 2-3 hours, also lost the ability to turn off the bright blue LED lit dome with the new firmware.
if you fell into this hole like i did. go to[...] and download the 126.96.36.199 firmware. it will ask you for the router serial number (of which the refurbished routers dont have one), to the right of the red download button is a link that says "continue without registering" click this and it will allow you to download the 188.8.131.52 firmware. go to your router admin screen (using the access method i mentioned above)\Maintenance\Router Upgrade, use this window to downgrade back to 184.108.40.206
Wireless N 600 speed is awesome, very noticable upgrade from my AT&T Wireless G router imbedded in my home gateway. the router is increadibly stable, no issues day-over-day, it just works, just what you would expect from a NetGear.
So here I am reviewing one of the more solid and easy routers I have ever worked with. The WNR1000 v3 is the one I bought, and to be frank I cannot imagine why if all you want is wireless access to the internet would you spend anymore then this on a router.
The WNR1000 v3 was easy to setup, has almost equal range in 2.4Ghz compared to the WNR3800 and still has some useful features.
You can argue that it has no gigabit LAN or WAN connections or a 5Ghz support duel band. You can also say that for $29 which is what I paid you should not expect it to last. But then I remember spending $120 on a router that lasted 6 months. So if this $29 lasts that long I will simply go out and buy another. Not feeling nearly as bad as throwing away a $120 one. What is the real scam is that most of my devices support only the 2.4Ghz band anyway and never connected at the claimed speeds of the more expensive WNR3800. So don't be fooled by marketing hype that your speeds will be so much better with a expensive router. Especially in the 2.4Ghz band. Its very crowded and if you have plenty of neighbors with wireless your going to get much less speed anyway. Something the router makers don't talk about. So in my opinion, don't over spend on a router thinking your getting range and speed. You may be just getting more features that cause more problems and you may not have a better quality connection.
That's coming from someone who learned from his mistakes.
