The first 20 days I had this router it worked ok. I would get three bars in my spare room where the desk top computer is, which is only 20' feet away from where the router was but downstairs (where my blu-ray player is) in the room directly below where the router was I would get 4 bars. After about 3 weeks (20 days) I all the sudden could not get a signal from the spare room for the desk top computer. I talked to Netgear's tech support and they went through a couple of things to check and informed me that there was an issue with the computer not the router. Well, I took their word for it and just hardwired the computer as I had ran an Ethernet cable from where the router was to two rooms when I moved into the house.
The next issue came when my boys and I tried to go on Xbox live together. We could not connect on the same party at the same time. I found a solution online and tweaked some of the settings. That worked if only two Xbox's were online. If we tried to connect 3 Xboxs then one of us would get disconnected. I tweaked some more settings and got to where we could all play together with 3 Xboxs, but that lasted only one day. The next day we tried to connect and we could not, but you could connect 2 Xboxs and someone was left out.
I bought another Xbox the first week of Dec '11 in order for all of us (myself and 3 boys) to be able to all play together. I put that one in the spare room where the desk top computer is. Well guess what - the Xbox could not even find the signal. Hmmmm, so it's not just the computer after all. I then had my step-son try to get a signal with his iPod Touch in the spare room (again this is just 20' away) and nothing. I called tech support and I was on the phone with him for 4 hours, yes 4 hours. He took me through a lot steps. He directed me to download the beta firmware, which did nothing for the signal. He then informed me that it must be a dead zone. At the time I was tired and could not be on the phone any longer due to having to get up at 4:15am for work.
The next day I bought an Ethernet switch in order to hard wire the Xbox and computer in the spare room and I was able to get both of those devices to work - for two hours that is. My son continued to lose connection to the internet with the Xbox even with it hard wired. I even disconnected the switch and the computer and directly hooked up that Xbox and it still would not connect. I unplugged the Xbox Ethernet cable from the back of the router and plugged it back in and the Xbox then connected to Xbox Live for a couple of hours and then disconnected again. At that point I unplugged the Netgear WNDR 3800 and hooked up my older Belkin N+ router and guess what - 4 bars in the spare room. The issue with the Belkin was that you have to port forward and assign an IP address for each Xbox if you want to connect all of them.
Bottom line: I went out and bought a Cisco-Linksys E4200 yesterday and BAM! everything was connected with absolutely no issues, no port forwarding, and 5 bars with no lag or drops on any of the devices including streaming movies at the same time on Netflix. I had everything online for several hours to give a good test and not one drop. I then called Netgear support to let them know I want a refund and they informed me that I was over my 30 days, but they will send me a new one once they receive the defective one.
What I have now is a $130 WNDR 3800 paper weight and once I receive the new one, I will have to sell it myself in order to try and get some of my money back. The Netgear WNDR 3800 might work for some, but it sure as heck did not for me. The signal strength was terrible (when you could actually get one) and it has to be constantly rebooted. Save yourself the headache and go with something else. I will say their tech support folks do really try to resolve the issues, although I had a little bit of a hard time understanding some of the techs.
Update: 1 March 2012 - Netgear did in fact send me back a brand new router in the sealed box. I was able to sell in on Graig's List for $110. Bottom line - I got the router I wanted (Cisco-Linksys E4200) and I recouped some of the money spent. By the way the Linksys E4200 is still going with one reboot - simply awesome router.
