Cheap wireless N routers do 150mbps
Good ones do 300mbps on both 2.4 and 5ghz range
Expensive ones get 300mbps on 2.4 and 450mbps on the 5ghz range
This router does 450mbps on BOTH 2.4 and 5ghz
Only 1 other router currently has this capability, a trendnet router, but it offers none of the user friendly capabilities as this one does. Its so fast, There are a very small number of wifi adapters that will even be able to utilize all 450mbps (most of them intel), so this router should remain top of the line for a good while.
If you are a router junkie, you might know that this router is a true upgrade to the renown WNDR3700 , rather then the WNDR4000. This router packs efficient high power amps on both the 2.4 and 5ghz antennas, meaning better throughput throughout the house and better signal and coverage. Whereas I used to get 3 bars in my room, I now get a full 5.
There is also a full host of features on this router,features any high end router has, such as gigabit connections, full range of led status lights, separate guest networks on both bands, etc.
Now, the router dosnt come with a CD, but that's a plus, you just open a webpage after connecting to the router it will have a prebuilt SSID and password) and type in routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 and press enter. There you will be directed to the "netgear Genie" program where you will have a host of things you can change from basic parameters to higher advanced functions. cool things this has is 2 usb ports which can connect printers and harddrives to your network and DLNA functionality. The Genie menu is very simplistic, with thumbnails of menus that actively changes statuses. There you can check everything, and they have a refined version of their "connected devices" list where you will see every device that is connected to the router (great for checking on intruders)
The physical aspect of this router is just as phenomenal. It comes with the clear base attached so its always standing, and its HUGE, well not that big, but bigger then most other routers. However its glossy meaning it will attract fingerprints. Even with it vertically standing, it has a firm foothold, meaning even with many Ethernet cables pulling on its back, it wont tip.
I took it apart and inside, whereas regular routers have one maybe 2 heatsinks, this one has 6 giant black heatsinks cooling off its cpu and ram blocks. While some other reviews may say there is a fan inside, there isnt, its all passive cooled which is good, it means you wont have dust clogging up the inside of your router. Also, the antennaes are patch antannes, which are taped onto the top half of the shell, so be careful removing it if you plan on taking it apart.
Going from the usual norm of atheros chips, the wndr4500 uses a Broadcom BCM4718 processor, the flagship of the Intensi-fi XLR family of router processors. and also ups the flash ram from the usual 64mb to 128mb.
Overall, this is a very expensive router, but you do get what you pay for. It fixes some of the problems of the previous crown holder, the WNDR3700, such as 5ghz connectivity and signal problems and upgrades the speed to a combined 900mbps on 6 spatial data streams. Saying this router is great for "HD streaming" or "gaming" would be the understatement of the year, it is networking overkill for many tasks. A definite buy if you have the means to afford it.
After A week or two of testing out its capabilities heavily, i can say this is probably my new favorite router. I have not had a dropped connection yet, or random restarts whatsoever, even with 11 wifi devices connected to the router, traffic was not noticeable. So far so good! future firmware updates should make this router even better.
Recommended setting changes----
-If you dont have any wireless B devices (97% of us) you should set the preamble length to short preamble (under advanced setup-wireless settings tab), this will give a slight boost in thorough put
-while its tempting to set 2.4ghz to 450mbps, i mean, who dosnt want max speed? however 450mbpd uses channel bonding (40mhz channel width), which will cause interference with your neighbor's wifi signal and also your own if their channel happens to fall under yours. If your house has wifi congestion, i suggest using 217mbps mode, this will give you fast speed without interference on your network, and your neighbors will like you more. 450mbps on the 5ghz band however is recommended because the likely hood of any 5ghz signals is small, and to have that signal fall under your 5ghz channel only decreases the chance any problems will arise. My neighborhood for example has 17 2.4ghz signals, 3 jerks who use 40mhz channel widths, but not a single 5ghz user.
-The router is still going strong, Since having it I have not had to reboot, even once!
-Firmware updates are not that helpful (except for the first one the boosted range of the 5ghz band), and also not frequent, maybe about one update per couple of months (and each one only fixes 1-2 specific bugs)
-Netgear needs to change their wifi policy, this router conforms to the "good neighbor" policy where it will automatically dial down wireless channel width when it detects other similar bands in the area, thus in the options, you can change the router to go "up to" 450mbps
-5ghz range while acceptable, wont go all the way to the end of the house
I am just listing most of the cons, otherwise, this is still an awesome router to get for the right price, though right now, there is a strong, possibly even better competitor, the ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router
^which uses mostly the same basic hardware but with upgrades to the memory and the antenna configuration, so check that out too!
First the pros:
Network Genie for people who know nothing about routers.
Advanced configs are great because this is the first router I've seen in ages that allows port forwarding with redirection to another port, which I needed, and smoothwall provided.
Cons: it doesn't work out of the box. It will connect to the internet and works great "IF" I give all of my devices a static IP address. Issue being that it will assign a DHCP addy for the first 5-10 minutes that it is powered on, my phones etc will connect. However after that short period of time it is useless and will only allow already connected devices that obtained an IP address, or those which are static to connect. It will not assign new addresses so any wifi or wired Ethernet connection fails. It did work for the first 2 hours and then after that I discovered this bug. So I just disabled the DHCP on the stupid router, and installed DHCP de on my Win7 security camera and dvr box, and now the home network happily buzzes along. So, I'm really only using this as a direct router and then I will also port forward all of my outside ports to my camera's inside the network. Just a shame this bug exists and it would be nice if they can fix it with a firmware upgrade. I can only give it one star because of the DHCP issue and the fact that a regular user who is not a network engineer (which I happen to be) who understands DHCP vs Static, firewalls, static and dynamic routing etc. could NEVER get this to work. I'm not going to send it back because I really doubt there is any hardware issue. It is pretty much rock solid so far other than the issue with DHCP server failing after a few minutes.
I spent hours and hours on the phone with Netgear support, usually several times per week. Finally, they advanced me to Level 2 service, which apparently means you do not have to wait on the phone as long before talking to somebody, but still plan on being on the phone a minimum of 30 minutes per call with the tech people. At first, they made all sorts of changes to my computer remotely, which makes one nervous, but when you have this much invested in a router, you would like to get it working more than a few hours at a time. After several months of not being able to correct the problem, Netgear sent me a replacement router. Mind you, not a new router. IT STILL HAD THE BENT PAPER CLIP IN THE BOX THAT THE PRIOR OWNER USED FOR REBOOTING!!!!! The Netgear folks were not as phased by this as I was. They were sure this one would not drop the internet constantly like the last one. Unfortunately, they were wrong. So, I was back to my frequent, lengthy phone conversations with the tech people.
I tried everything they suggested, and I tried everything that I saw suggested in different feedback here - I bought a cooling fan just for the router, I bought a new modem. Nothing worked, and the router continued to drop the internet and needed to be rebooted at least once a day, but usually more like 3-5 times per day.
After 10 months of working with Netgear Tech support without a solution, I reluctantly gave up and bought an Asus. So far so good with the Asus. Save yourself a lot of time, money and headache, and skip the Netgear.
