The only problem I have is that since it is in my basement, data transfer to the hard drive is around 1-2 MBps. Hopefully, after I get a range extender, that increases.
It has been over 9 months since I installed this routed. Have had no problems with reboots or drop connections. After some horrible Netgear routers that I have used over the years, this one seems to be solid. Netgear has finally started to make some reliable products.
2 Wired Connections: One to an 8 port Netgear switch, another one to my Vonage.
10 Wireless Connections: Phones, PCs, Mac, Tablets
2 TB WD MyBook via USB. Great thing is that this router has dlna server in built for the USB port. Movies, Pictures, Songs stored on the hard drive can be accessed via any device that supports dlna.
Still going strong. Had to reboot once in past 6 months, but apart from that no other issues.
Note: If you are using the DLNA feature with the attached hard drive to watch videos, only .avi files will play on your DLNA device. .m4 or .mkv will not play from your hard drive. I wish there is an upgrade from Netgear to support other file formats as well.
Router is still going strong. Have had no issues with it as yet. Hopefully, it will last couple more years. Would still love to see the DLNA video support for .mkv or .m4 files from Netgear.
Features in WNDRMac which are not in WNDR3700:
- Rapidshare USB Printer support
- Genie dashboard control
- Video Mode
- Time Machine compatible
- CD-less install (not that it really matters)
To my surprise, WNDRMac model nicely worked with an externally powered USB drive! From several reviews and user comments, the 3700/3800 models did not seem to work with a USB drive which was externally powered. It uses Bonjour for the Printers - so connecting printer should not be as difficult as other models (Bonjour can be installed on Windows as well).
Overall, I feel WNDRMac has more features than WNDR3700 (much closer to WNDR3800), plus closer to Mac and works well with PCs - with lesser cost than either of those models.
I have it for almost 3 days now - no reboots or no issues at all. Works great on both frequencies, automatically detects and configures USB drives. Great product!
The ability to share a printer via Bonjour was a big draw. Setup for that printer on my Mac was (no surprise) a no-brainer. As soon as I went to Printers in Sys Prefs, my MBP saw my HP printer connected through the new router and I was in business. The Dell PC required a free download in order to support Bonjour printer services, but setup was painless. Once since my initial setup I had to reinstall the printer service on both computers. Not sure what that was about, except perhaps I changed some settings in the new router and the printer drivers needed to find the device again. Working fine now.
The Extreme has powerful WiFi signals on both bands. It is located on the second floor of my wood frame, traditional home, and I can pick up both hi and low bands several hundred feet away from my house. Point is, inside the house, the signal is strong on every level of my home. Very pleased. Dual band is nice, in that I can connect my MBP to the router on the 5g band, and then connect all our smaller iOS devices on the lower 2.5g band. Not that traffic is a big issue in a one family dwelling; still, the two bands are nice when streaming movies, music, etc. Also, the guest network -- standard now on Netgear routers -- is a great feature. Allow your friends to connect with an easy password, but don't worry about someone connecting to your hardware or using your peripherals. The wireless isolation option is great for this.Read more ›
