Update Oct 03, 2011: While I have not encountered any problems, there are complaints about the 126.96.36.199 firmware dropping wireless connections in 2.4GHz 802.11n mode and with DNS issues that require reboots of the router. A 188.8.131.52-DNS beta update has been released to fix the latter problem.
In a span of about 6 months, Netgear has released the WNDR4000, the WNDR3800, and the WNDR4500. Unfortunately, unlike most normal product naming schemes, higher model numbers do not necessarily translate into more functionality.
For instance, the WNDR3800 will have a greater impact on my own home network simply because:
1. Most of my devices (incl. consoles and media devices) use the 2.4GHz spectrum (where Clear Channel helps).
2. Most of my needs center around media streaming (where video mode helps).
So how does it perform?
I ran some benchmarks using iPerf between two computers, connected wirelessly on the 2.4GHz band. Impressively, the WNDR3800 gave me a constant throughput of about 24 to 26 Mbps.
inSSIDer also indicates that with the WNDR3800's amplifiers, my RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) amplitude is at least 10dB better than when using my WNDR3700.
In real world tests - streaming Netflix and other content was great on all my media devices.
Enumerating the Pros:
1. Easy install.Read more ›
My network devices consist of 2 wired computers, a TCP/IP printer, 3 wireless security cameras, two Wireless laptops, an Iphone, an external USB drive for filesharing/DLNA and a wireless DLNA LED TV. I also have Vonage for my home phone which is an IP phone service that needs an internet connection so the 2 wired computers, printer, and IP phone occupy the 4 LAN ports on the router.
I like the new GUI on the 3800. There are two main tabs (Basic and Advanced). When comparing directly to the WNDR37xx, the new GUI is more intuitive. If you simply need to connect a wireless laptop, smartphone or a readyshare device, you might find all you need under the Basic tab. The Basic settings are going to get your router talking to your ISP, set up your wireless SSID's and security, show you a list of attached devices, allow you to set up parental controls, configure the readyshare (including the new readyshare "cloud"), and set up your guest network.
The Basic tab has a "Home" button which give you a graphical menu to get to the other pages and shows some basic infomation such as "Internet-Status: Good" This is a great quickview dashboard for the status of your routers' functions and lets you see at a glance if and where there might be a problem.Read more ›
UPDATE: Tried the V184.108.40.206-DNS firmware, which can be found in the comments. Kudos to Netgear for the responsive support. The -19 firmware is not a complete fix, however. While the connection to the router appears to be solid, I still experience internet dropouts on my wireless devices. These dropouts usually recover after a few seconds. This is an improvement over the -18 firmware, which could only be fixed with a power cycling or reboot of the router, but still not acceptable. Love the feature list of this router, but the features need to work... If you are looking to purchase this router, you might want to wait until it is a little more mature. After some additional research, this isn't the first Netgear router to have these kinds of issues.
