This is my third router in 5 years. I upgrade when the technology takes a jump or when I start to see a lot of network outages or both. This time I replaced a router that was 802.11n but it was not dual band (netgear 3500 series). I used the 3500 about 2.5 years and I was starting to see more and more network outages. Maybe because the router was getting old or maybe because I'm starting to add more devices to my network and it simply could not handle the traffic. Currently I have the following equipment on my wireless network: (1)Desktop, 2(laptops),(1)iPhone4, (2)iTouch, (2)Sony PS3, (1)Kodak Digital Picture, (2)Flat Panel TV's streaming video. I also support a number of devices wired directly to my router including: (1)Desktop, (1)Network Printer, (1)AT&T 3G Microcell, (1)Synology NAS, (1)Sonos Bridge, (1) Vonage Device. So, I have many devices trying to communicate through my router.
Installation was a snap. Out of the box, follow the quick install guide. Power off modem, connect router to modem, connect computer to router, power on modem (2 minutes), power on router (2 minutes), power on computer (2 minutes). Type in [...] to access router. Default configuration will get you online. Have the router check for firmware updates with the netgear website. If there are any upgrades available, download and install. I always change the router password from default. Setup wireless network both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. I named them both the same and added a 5G to the 5GHz band :). Setup security preferences (WPA2-PSK [AES] for me) , type in passphrase (network password). Done.
I use my Synology NAS as an ftp server that can be accessed from outside my home network so I had to setup some port forwarding. This is outside the scope of most setups. Suffice to say that this operation went smoothly with no problems.
I had a secure network up and running with no problems in a matter of minutes. I added both TV's to the 5GHz band using WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) and I added the other wireless devices to the 2.4GHz band using the passphrase.
The network has been up and running for a week now with no outages. I have really taxed the network too by streaming HD movies, moving large files from my computer to my NAS, while uploading large files to a remote backup site. No matter what I throw at this router, it doesn't miss a beat.
Easy to add devices to network (WEP and passphrase)
Strong signal throughout the house (much better than 3500)
Cool looking design, low profile and lights
Reliable (so far after a week of heavy use)
Could have included a Gensu knife or Salad Shooter with router.
Based on the ease of setup, performance, and reliability under heavy traffic, I highly recommend this router.
Works great with wifi devices all over the house (~2500 sq ft) and the yard too.
I choose to get a single dual band router for simplicity (don't want two routers), and because of the backwards compatibility.
Works great with my:
- first gen PS3 (802.11g)
- first gen Wii (802.11g)
- Windows XP, Vista, 7
- Verizon Droid smart phone
- Windows 7 EeePC tablet
- wireless IP cameras
- multilevel house (even in the fear cage / office, in spite of tons of gadgets and interference)
The xbox360 wifi connection is now 100% reliable and great for streaming HD video (Netflix and Zune).
Only problem I had was with trying to configure from the CD -- Windows 7 did not like that at all, said the router was improperly installed which was BS. Don't bother with the CD, just open a browser to [...] (the typical def GW) and familiarize yourself with the options - it will pay off in the long run. Be sure to change the admin password (the default is "password"), and make sure you secure your wifi networks (both of them, since dual band). Besides, if you need a wizard to configure this stuff, you probably shouldn't be doing it. Get a nerdy friend or a neighborhood 12 year old to help you.
They said that the support rn out after 6 months and I had to pay for any additional help.
They suggested the WNDR-37AV which was a newer version that fixed all the problems the earlier one had.
I dutifully purchased it. But it just seemed to be the same old router with a new name.
My iPhone and iPad could not connect to it.
I then tried the WNDR 4500 with similar results and then gave up on this company and it's product.
I purchased a Dlink router and have ben able to use the wireless seamlessly with my mobile devices.
No more Netgear in the future for me. I wasted too much time and money on this company on it's products and paid reviewers that are on tech sites.
