    Pros: -Dual Band
    -Separate SSIDs for guests
    -It's quick (when it's not restarting)
    -The setup wasn't too difficult.
    -I actually liked the blue light. I guess because it wasn't in my bedroom... LOL
    Cons: -It restarts quite frequently causing both my XP machine and my Macbook to drop. I suppose it overheats or whatever. Going to work at it some more and see if I can't make it play a wee bit nicer.
    With this particular router you are pretty much getting your moneys worth. It's quite quick when its actually working properly. My particular piece of hardware likes to restart though due to what I'm guessing is overheating. I'm going to try to get more air to it but will probably end up going with Cisco/Linksys or DLink.
    June 3, 2011 GmaLynn says:
    Pros: Easy to install
    My old one worked fine, this one was easy to install and works better.

    So far, so good. Works great in my large home. Replaced a Netgear router that failed, but this one works much better!!
    May 13, 2011 TechieElder says:
    Pros: Easy Installation and good features, good price
    Cons: nothing
    I purchased this to replace an old router that was becoming unstable. I found the installation simple using the supplied disk. The hardest part was figuring out just how the feet snap onto the case. Am using it to provide wireless internet to one desktop, two laptops and two "Nooks" scattered over a medium-sized two story frame house. Signal strength and net speed are excellent throughout and onto the patio, too.
    Only problem has been a need to restart following a couple of power and isp drops.

    Pros: good value
    Cons: installtion
    once installed and running I was happy. But the product was not as easy to install as the salespeople claimed. After 4 hours on the fist day I almost retuned it. Its conpatabiity with the modem was a problem. The second day things went smooth, total installion time was 1hr.
    April 29, 2011 Anonymous says:
    Pros: Easy setup. Three story house and router on top floor. Connects to laptops downstairs with strong signal.
    This ones for the simple home and I should have bought the 3700.
    If you don't like the blue light, then turn it off.
    Cons: no Gigabit Ethernet ports

    Pros: easy set up. Performance
    Cons: nothing
    Bought this to replace my wornout netgear router that I had had for the last 5 years. Easy setup(out of box to connected about 12 minutes) Signal strength is great in 2300 square foot home with 2 levels. What else can I say, it does what it is supposed to do. How excited can you get about a router
    April 21, 2011 GuyS says:
    Pros: The WNDR3400 N600 Wireless Dual Band Router is a great little system for home use. It was easy to setup, from out of the box to a working wireless home network took about 15 min. and to connect or add the other laptops in my house was just as easy. It has a range that covers my entire house with little or no lag time and it has a pretty descent download speed.
    Cons: So far, after using for 2 weeks, I haven't experienced any problems or issues yet.
    April 20, 2011 LL2T says:
    It does what its suppose to do, for me the instructions could have been a little more simple but I'm not a computer savvy person so that may have been the issue.
    April 20, 2011 DaveinsePA says:
    Pros: Works fine once setup
    Cons: Needs better instructions for setup and what encrypition to use
    I got the router all setup following the basic directions. Plug in, turn on. Put in the set up disk with the ethernet plugged into windows 7 laptop. Followed the setup and used the recommended encryption. All was well with my laptop connected wirelessly. All the wired computers worked fine. None of the other wireless computers worked correctly. A Vista laptop connected to the network ok, but not the internet. The XP laptop would not even connect to the network. I tried to change the encryption to none but then nothing worked.
    I called tech support and got a nice Philipino named Ben. A little communication problem with a lot of "what did you say?". Spent an hour(61min) with him. The problem was the encryption. The "recommended" one was only good for windows 7. Had to change to WEP and add a new password. Then delete all the old connections in each laptop then reconnect, maybe a couple times.
    A lot of fun.
    When setting up yours, use your oldest operating system.

    Pros: Range
    Cons: Attracts Dust
    It is not a bad Router to have. I got this to upgrade my current router that was a little slow. My neighbors wanted to connect off me so we could all share internet and pay seperate prices. It runs 3 wireless things so far A wii, Laptop, and a Iphone.. We will be rnning even more on this product when the neghbors are ready for me to install wireless in there desktop.
    April 12, 2011 jazzfan19605 says:

    April 12, 2011 805NonComputerNerd says:
    Pros: Dual signal
    We always had problems with our previous routers, but this one is WONDERFUL! We could even turn off the signal to my mean sister's computer when she was making us mad! ha! but seriously, my husband used it for online gaming (PS3, COD games) and loved it. I got to stream movies and tv shows while he was playing. Our other router never would let us do that. Love it!
    April 11, 2011 Mort48 says:
    Pros: Good range
    Cons: Nothing yet
    This is the first router I ever set up and it was easy to set up. The set up instructions gave me a little trouble, but after I figured out what they ment it went well. Great range was out in backyard and the hook up was fast and the speed was a lot faster than I thought it would be.
    April 11, 2011 jcleare says:
    Pros: speed, range, set up, price
    Cons: noting yet
    I spent several hours researching routers. I am a MAC only user but was not sure if I should spend $180 for an airport extreme. I am not a tech person but i do appreciate quality things. I set this router using the install disc and it took 10 minutes. 9 minutes were installing firmware and and other misc downloads automatically. It was SUPER simple to set up. Its replacing an older $60 netgear - g router. Router is on the 3rd floor of my home and it work fine 30 feet from my front door. May have gone longer but there is no need.
    current Macbook pro 17", late 2010 Macbook pro 13", ipad, (2) iphone 4 in my house hold.

    Cons: frequently get hanged
    It has been 2 months since I bought this router and it works well. Only problem is it sometimes gets 'hanged' and needs to be re-plugged.
    March 24, 2011 JayBlue says:
    Pros: Fast hook up
    Cons: Don't see any difference in speed
    Nice unit but I don't like the flashy light. Hooks up fast and relatively painless. I don't see the difference in speed though
    March 24, 2011 scdarick says:
    Pros: range
    Cons: cheap stand, could not find anything else to say not good about.
    signal rate is great, many options to solve just about any type of installation. range is great, especially if used with another netgear router as a base and repeater, covers my entire house, runs 11 wifi, and around 4 hard lines, not many can handle that kind of load, but a good isp speed would be helpful, i use around 16 down, 1.5 up. great product, its my 6th netgear router. the only other router i think comes close is apples 2 type routers to do the same setup, the extreme, and express.

    I suggest anyone looking to purchase this product make sure you only want it to use one band and online only...NOT FOR GAMING>>DUAL BAND USLESS
    March 23, 2011 Bill477 says:
    Pros: Great range/dual band
    Cons: for the price, no complaints
    By far the easiest router I've ever installed. I have an older brick home with concrete floors upstairs (yes upstairs) and down. The signal is strong throughout the house and covers most of the 1/2 acre lot. Dual signal design allowed me to use older components to link in additional computers and games systems on old wireless B connections as well as the N connections for my Bluray and new systems. I was also able to set up a seperate guest account on the slower my friends with Ipads can access the internet without compromising my network.
    March 23, 2011 RobDavo says:
    Pros: Price and wifi coverage
    Cons: Doesn't play nice with iPads
    While the router was definitely easy to install and set up, it might take a user with more knowledge of wireless networks to effectively manage the wireless network settings needed to obtain a secure wifi network. Also, for whatever reason, our iPad constantly drops connection with this (and other) routers. While it might not necessarily be indicative of a flaw with this Netgear router, iPad users might wish to be aware of this. Aside from the iPad issue, none of the PC computers have any issues with this router.

    Pros: Looks cool, supports all of my devices, allows port forwarding or dmz setup for PS3
    Cons: none
    More complicated than cheaper models due to all of the advanced features that most won't use anyway, especially if they are just looking for an easy wireless router. I've been through a few Linksys routers, so I wanted to try Netgear this time around. Currently using it's wireless routing capabilities on 1 pc, 2 laptops, 2 smartphones, and a PS3. Works great for what I need.

    Pros: Wireless reception, ease of installation

    I purchased this wireless router to replace an old Belkin Wireless G+ that stopped working.
    The Netgear router was easy to install and set-up. I am getting great reception throughout my home, including streaming HD movies through Netflix and Amazon On Demand.
    I would definitely recommend this router.

My sisters uverse router is to far from my temp. bedroom to run ethernet across the house and 802.11g didn't cut it when I tried to play Battlefield:BC2 last was laggy as heck. Her upload/downloads are pretty good and knew it was the wireless connection. Hooked this Wireless N router up (behind the uverse router)specific for gaming along with the adapter these two were the cheapest I could find that claimed good enough for gaming. Just got off BC2 for two hours and didn't experience any lag at all. It also actually improved my ping slightly as well too. If you need an affordable wireless router for your PC gaming or console, give these two a try.

    Pros: Setup, and Speed
    Cons: You dont have it yet!
    I had a horrible experience with a Linksys not to long ago and was never going back. I did some research and found this bad boy. The dual band gives you a fast connection for both devices I have hooked up to it and seamless access to new devices. All I had to do was update some firmware, name the router and set a password and I was in business. I loved it since I was so afraid of routers because of my last one. Great product and great price. Highly recommend this one.
    March 9, 2011 Deus1114 says:
    Pros: Price and ease of use and set up.
    Cons: push and connect did not work for printer
    I had this router up and running in no time and had all my laptops, XBox and printer networked in within an hour. There was a little problem with the printer set up through the push and connect feature, but I just used the ethernet cable and it then set up right away. I have not noticed any dead spots and it is keeping up with my computer and printing needs. I did hook up the XBox with an ethernet cable so the gaming would not have the wireless delay, but that is why there are the ethernet ports in the rear of the router.
    March 9, 2011 Niceperson says:
    Pros: Price per performance
    Cons: Installation
    What I found out was that the laptop used to install the wireless aspect of the router, needed to be re-set up once the rest of the house was wireless. In short, what ever computer you use to set the router up, you need to call into the customer service dept of NetGear to walk you through the steps to make that computer wireless. It was not intuitive at all! I should have paid a couple more dollars for the router that just needs one button pushed to set up. I am not a complete idiot when it comes to installations, however I was blown away with the effort needed to finally be able to use ALL computers wirelessly.
    March 9, 2011 jefe72 says:
    Pros: WPS makes it easy to connect devices.

    February 23, 2011 Buckleyboy says:
    Pros: NO over heating issues
    Cons: Could be a little bit cheaper
    I have always been a fan of Cisco, but just recently I got tired of constant drops and overheating issues from the router that I had. I was told by a friend to try the Netgear router that I purchased and it was night and day for me. It doesn't overheat, it hasn't dropped me since I have purchased it about a month ago, haven't even turned it off, and has a cool blue light to it as well. So if you the same issues I have had with other routers than I would suggest to try this one, you won't be dissapointed.
    February 23, 2011 Kev19 says:
    Pros: Performance
    Cons: Annoying Blue LED
    So far, this router is performing as advertised. I have a wireless G and a wireless N client connecting through this router and neither have experience range issues or access issues. Performance is outstanding. I also run xbox live through the router, which hasn't been an issue.
    My old router needed to have a power cycle almost daily to get it connected to the internet, and I used to have my computer assigned a static ip just to access the router; so this new router has really made things easier for me.
    My one problem is the bright, blue light that shines from the click-to-connect button at all times. I would prefer a device that won't light up a room by itself, but it is a minor issue compared to the other benefits.

    I loved this router when i first bought it. Since then i have had so much trouble keeping my devices connected its annoying. Not quite sure why yet but i shouldn't have to. Never had this problem with any other router!!!!
    February 20, 2011 skidrone says:
    Pros: essentially it is 4 routers in 1
    Cons: network memory unreliable
    This is a great router, but the network memory feature is unreliable. I have a usb hard drive plugged into it and I can only see it across the network about half the time. To fix this I have to reset power to the router.

    Pros: speed, price and dual band
    Cons: slightly confusing setup but not bad
    This is the fastest router I've ever owned. Setup was pretty easy, CD walked me through how to set it up on my own. There were two passwords that had to be setup and then once I was trying to get my laptop connected it wasn't clear which password was to be used. Thankfully there were only two options.... Other than that I definatley recommend this router.
    February 18, 2011 Daveofmelbourne says:
    Pros: Great performance
    Cons: None
    First let me say this is a great router. I had some problems with the setup but a call to support helped tremendously. Part of the problem was my computer. When I hooked up another, it went smootly. I really like the router, it has worked flawlessly for the last 2 months that I have had it.

    Pros: movies and programs download fast
    Cons: nothing
    We had another brand and movies were slow to load and stopped to reload all the time. We got the 600 without gigabytes and it helped, but not enough. We got this model with the gigabytes and it increased our reception 20% - 40% depending on the location giving us 100% in some locations. Really great when you download computer programs. Would say it great and spend a little extra and get what you really want in speed
    February 18, 2011 MermanTechGeek says:
    Pros: Price, ease of use, dual band
    Cons: Flimsy legs for standing upright
    I have no doubt you can get a better router, but not for the money and not for people who have little tech knowledge. This is a breeze to set up, good instructions, and hasn't needed a reboot since I purchased it.
    February 18, 2011 TechnoHero says:
    Pros: Range and Speed
    Cons: Physical size (large)
    Used this product to replace an expensive boosted-antenna industrial router. We got better range and speed than that $700 device. NetGear for the win!
    February 18, 2011 Touey says:
    Pros: The Syncing
    Cons: Not one problem with it but I only had it a month.
    This is the best wireless router I ever had! It was easy to install and setup. Works great! The syncing feature is awesome; just press the blue button and your devices find it and syncs right away. You don't need a passphase code or anything just press the blue button and its done!

    Pros: Strong signal for streaming of video content and separate channel frequency for internet traffic
    Cons: Nothing
    I had a Cisco Linksys Router 2000 and had problems with the initial install so returned it for a Netgear. What sold me on this particular router was the range and the reviews of previous customers. I would have given it 5 stars in the ease of installation but had to restart the modem connection and computer a couple of times. After that however it was "smooth sailing" and no drop-outs of signal.

    February 9, 2011 BigPapJim says:
    Pros: Easy to set up, great price, dual Wi-Fi connection.
    Cons: Nothing.
    Works great for the price, having the ability to hook up multiple PC's, Blue Ray players and Game Systems while downloading and/or streaming without getting lag spikes. Does extremely well with the dual Wi-Fi at different Hz also, and has ability to have different security for each Wi-Fi connection as well.
    If you are looking for a low budget piece, this is the best one to go with, regardless of what you have currently as it definitely will hold its own for awhile, I go thru Gigabytes of data on multiple machines and it does its job effortlessly.
    February 9, 2011 MNQuiring says:
    Pros: Works well in a large house (3800sqft), dual band for devices that accept 5ghz, no antennas, smaller footprint. We have a two level house with a basement, the router is in the office (upper level) and one of the Tivo's is in the basement (two levels down). We can stream Netflix movies at HD quality on the TV on the main level, and in the basement at the same time with no issues. We have two desktops, two laptops, an Ipad, an Iphone, a torch, three Tivos, and blu ray player, and a Wii hooked up with no issues.
    Cons: The UI for settings is not as good as Linksys. I have owned Linksys routers since they became available and I prefer that interface. The Netgear interface takes some digging and is not as intuitive. The blue light on the top is just nuts, you can shut it off, see the manual.

    Pros: Works well with Vista
    Cons: Does not appear to work with XP
    Most of my machines are still XP. I started the installation with an XP laptop and after several hours of changing settings, reading FAQs, etc. I gave up and called Netgear support. After 4 calls and a couple of hours I got through. The support person reviewed my setup and when we were about to hit enter, she mentioned if my call were dropped that there would be no need to call again, she would call me. I was suspicious since she had done nothing in the setup that I had not done without success. She told me to hit enter, then the phone line went dead .... Obviously nobody ever called back. Just goes to show there is more than one way to fix a software bug :-) After more time I just plugged it into my old wireless router and transmitted to my XP machines on the old one, and the Vista machines on the new router. By the way installation was flawless with Vista machines and the signal is strong.

    Pros: Easy set up, attractive unit
    Cons: nothing
    Would definitely recommend NetGear....previously bought Belkin and it went out within a year!
    February 8, 2011 BelAirSS says:
    Pros: Speed; price;Range
    Cons: No written instructions
    This thing is a whiz..The only complaint that I have is that it came without installation instructions. Someeone who is not familiar with computers might be in trouble if there were installation problems
    Fortunately, Netgear has good user assistance.
    I am also impressed with the range of this unit. I have a half acre, and there is no place on the property where I can't get a signal.
    February 7, 2011 Pat says:
    Pros: Dual band, ReadyShare, Guest networks, lifetime warranty
    Cons: Runs warm
    Dual band, ReadyShare, Guest networks, lifetime warranty Runs warm Have had this for a couple of weeks and it's working great so far. I've had no dropped connections. The speed is fast. The dual band works fine. And I love the ReadyShare feature. I'm using for backups to an attached flash drive. One of the nice things about this router is also the limited lifetime warranty.
    I don't want to be mean, but there is a review here from someone who rated their technical knowledge as high and then proceeded to use a black marker to block out the bright blue light from the big button on the side! LOL. Please, don't deface this router! Just press the button briefly and the light turns off. (This instruction is in the manual, btw.) It's always good to read the manual first if you have any issues. : )

    Pros: It looks and works great.
    Cons: nothing
    While knowledgeable about this type of product, I never needed a home network before. I knew I wanted speed, value, and ease of installation. This router exceeded my expections on all requirements. I would not hesitate to purchase another Netgear product.

    This has been wonderful. It can keep up with a WII, XBOX and two laptops without any issues. I can honestly sit two houses down and connect . The range is awesome!
    The best purchase I have made in a while!

    Pros: better speed
    Cons: connectivity issues
    Able to connect 2 desktops(XP), 1 wireless desktop(XP), 1 laptop (windows 7), PS3, Wii, Internet Radio...but have 1 Compaq laptop with Vista, and could NOT get it to work with settings. Will work with a different setting, which requires me to go back into all other devices to reconnect. Netgear support shoved me off to Compaq. That was a joke as they had me reformat my system back to factory setting, only to have same issue. Had no problem at all connecting my Linksys, thought I was stepping up to Netgear, but it was a step back.

    January 28, 2011 Brucester311 says:
    Pros: Slim size
    Cons: lite is bright in darkness
    Been using this device for a couple of months. I haven't seen much difference in this wireless and the hard wire one.
    January 27, 2011 Odii Gis says:
    Pros: Comcast gave me a boost and could not take advantage of it (wirelessly) until now! I just bought a new Gateway laptop with wireless N and together, the speed is almost instantenous! 300 mbps! It's great!
    -Dual Band!
    -WPS button
    -WiFi on/off button (great for when I am out of town)
    Cons: Unless it's standing up on end, the router turns into the iPhone4 (with it's reduction in connectivity). For some reason, holding or placing the router in a certain position (other than on end), affects the internal antenna.
    -wasn't that simple to install the router. I used the CD but ended up having to go through an internet connection to get it setup correctly. Not a big deal.
    -the WPS LED button IS a little bright. Makes my toddlers curious ("go to the light, go to the light")

    January 27, 2011 Kandu says:
    Pros: Easy to set up
    Cons: Nothing so far
    I have set up numerous wireless routers for others as well as for myself. I always use NetGear and have always been successful in getting them set up, making wireless connections to computers and peripheral equipment and making them secure. Installation is easy. There are no issues if the installation instructions are followed.
    January 27, 2011 Pilkenton says:
    Pros: Just works right, excellent value for the features
    The Netgear brand is always excellent and the high-speed, multi-channel features make it a great value. ReadyShare makes it easy to have a quick NAS without setting up a home server.
    January 27, 2011 detailer62 says:
    Pros: Performs well.
    Cons: Better explanation of what the USB port is for and what products are compatible with it.
    Bought as an upgrade from older model. Works well and was easy to set up.
    January 26, 2011 dukunter says:
    Pros: Great wireless signal. Looks pretty sweet!
    Cons: Nothing yet.
    Replaced a newer Linksys wireless modem with the Netgear. Setup was quick and painless. There is no appreciable difference in wired speeds, but the wireless signal is A LOT stronger. I was having to reset my network once a week to clear the cache on the previous modem. I never understood why, but that's what Linksys and Comcast recommended. I've had the Netgear connected for over a month and haven't had to reset anything. Modem interface is simple and intuitive.
    I wish I would have purchased this modem originally.
    January 25, 2011 a2dl says:
    I'm not sure, actually, which is the reason for my "average" rating in Performance. We have two new MacBook Airs in the house. They manage to find the N network *most* but not all of the time, and there are times when they find the N network but can't connect ("network connection timed out" or a similar message). Not sure what the issue is here, but perhaps the bugs not out in N.
    January 25, 2011 Zenguy1213 says:
    Pros: Easy Installation / Works Great!
    Cons: n/a
    I bought this after I purchased a laptop and my daughter got an I-Pad. I'm not a "tech person" by any sense of the term but this was relatively easy to set up and works great throughout our house. I highly recommend it!
    January 24, 2011 loveelway says:
    Pros: Easy to set up, consitent signal, strong signal
    Cons: Price was a little higher than i would of liked.
    Took me about 5 minutes to set this up. I kept having trouble with my Cisco router cutting in and out. The signal also wasn't strong enough to reach the basement from the top floor. This not only doesn't cut out, it gives me a 97% signal in the basement. Those were the two most important things to me.
    January 24, 2011 Grapejelly says:
    Pros: Keeping connection
    Cons: little pricey
    The installation was pretty easy, once I was on the right website. :*)~ The router has lost power on several instances and there hasn't been any issues with the router. A little pricey for me. Just happy to have wireless back. We have also updated the Wii & it is now connected to. The kids are having fun with that. :*)~
    January 23, 2011 xstcher04 says:
    Pros: Dependable
    Cons: Kind of confusing on set up
    Bought this router so I could finally go wireless. This was, for the most part, easy to install. It took my husband and I a couple of minutes to realize what the instruction book was really saying about the cords and how to connect them with our cable modem. Once we got that figured out, I literally haven't had to think about it since.
    January 22, 2011 dldine says:
    I bought this device to replace an older Linksys router that would not handle my Directv Apps. This unit was super easy to install, handles the Directv apps with no extra steps from me, is super fast, as has not dropped a signal yet. I would definitely recommend this model if you are looking for a new router!
    January 22, 2011 Lensman says:
    Pros: speed
    Cons: initial setup
    I had a Linksys n-router. It was slow and we had to constantly rest it. I was not sure where the problem was and my nephew told me it was the router and to replace it with a Netgear. I did so and it has sped up 650MB downloads that use to take 45-60 minutes to between 6-10 minutes even while my family is playing WOW. I have not heard a complaint about speed since I replaced it one month ago. The only problem was with the set up. I had to go online to Netgear to set it up instead of the CD that came with it.

    Pros: Speed and install.

    My new laptop was running slow internet while connected to my old Linksys router via wi-fi. Bought this Netgear router and speeds both download and upload were unbelievably increased. Super easy to install also. I highly recommend this router.
    January 20, 2011 Anonymous says:
    Pros: Specs are good on paper for the price...
    Cons: It bricked itself upon updating the firmware. All I did was login to the admin site, it asked to check and upgrade the F/W, then proceeded to enter some kind of refresh loop on the status bar. After 30 minutes of this, I went to do a power cycle and boom... no lights, no IP.

    Pros: This router runs perfect with my Extreme 50/10 internet from Comcast (recently upgraded to 50/20.) I have multiple devices that easily connected to it after I went through the setup, which I was not impressed with (see cons.) The router is stylish, way better than my old router I used to have with DSL. I'm a hardcore gamer, as is my brother, therefore we needed something that could handle 2 to 3 concurrent connections.
    The router handles the bandwidth perfectly. Both of us were playing and it was if I were still directly connected to my modem. He even had a download running at 1.5 MB/s and my ping was untouched while surfing the web and on Youtube (which uses upload.)
    If you're having problems with simultaneous gaming or mutlitasking on the router, you either have a defective router, or you just can't accept the fact you don't know how to set up things and would rather blame the equipment for your own stupidity.
    Cons: The LED light, but it's a small con that can easily be adjusted if you "read" the manual. Again, if you don't like to read, and you like to complain about things, well, that's your own fault.
    The setup was a hassle. I wanted to go through the setup to set up an encryption key since my neighbors like stealing internet. I decided I'd let it download the software update. That was a mistake. It caused the setup to crash numerous times before it magically worked. When I went through the setup again, the setup would kick my router offline and then say there
    January 18, 2011 JW says:
    Pros: EASY setup!
    Didn't use the disk - just plugged it into my 3PCs and Xbox, set the access passwords for wireless and it recognized my 2 Series 2 Tivos, 2 Droids, and the Wii immediately(G band)
    It recognized my 2 Premiere Tivos after a push of the WPS buttons (N Band 5 Ghz) and recognized the Samsung TV and BD player (N Band 2.4Ghz) after their on-screen setup procedures.
    I'm getting remarkable wireless speeds, and I am able to stream Netflix to the Samsung TV and from the Media PC to the BD Player simultaneously!
    Cons: That blue flashing UFO light on top IS annoying (until you read the manual)

    Pros: Internet usage tracker, easy to use web interface

    This product is your standard N+ router, but the great thing is that it can track your internet usage as well as has a few advanced features. I also love that you can connect a USB hard drive to it and all computers on network can use it as well as internet.

    Cons: nothing as yet , had it for a few months
    i bought this for my wireless internet connection at my vacation villa in Florida. it was to replace one that had been quite easily hacked by someone. this is quite foolproof, i could even set it up by going online and downloading the software as i do not have a cd drive in my notebook. it was recomended by a guy in your Davenport store , and it works just fine. I like the idea of 2 bands , 8 antenna and my kids love the flashing LED's on the side (you can turn them off if you like)

    The unit does not have the range I thought I would get in my 2000 Sq Ft home. With centralized placement, the ends of the house get less reception than my neighbors unit. Installation and Ease of use was great.

    This router is great for streaming and gaming. Keep in mind though, you may need to change the default "channel" that it sets itself up on. Because of the strength of the router, it's area usually surpasses your neighbors and you'll probably get knocked offline. If that happens, change the channel anything that it's not currently on (i changed mine to 6) and it hasn't dropped me once! Great hassle-free purchase!

    I got his on black Friday at a great price and have no complaints. Easy installation and flawless performance so far. I can pick up internet anywhere in my house with any device.
    January 14, 2011 muddbuddy says:
    Pros: Easy set up
    Great value for the cost. My only complaint is that I'm using this (along with wirelessly connecting a couple laptops) to connect a few flat screen TVs upstairs for the purpose of streaming music and video, and even though there is only no more than a physical distance of 12 feet separating the router from one of the TVs, I don't get full signal strength at the TV. So far this hasn't made for any negative impact, but I guess I expected better in terms of signal. Maybe this house is built better than I thought...

    Easy setup
    Tons of features Bright Blue light, but you can turn it off :-) Dual band is amazing and this router highlights that fact.
    Great router, compact and it even comes with a wizard setup CD for the not-so-techy folks.

    Pros: Reliable, speedy, easy to configure
    Cons: N/A
    Multiple wireless devices in the home network including a BluRay player and the router has worked flawlessly and was easy to configure.
    Even the obnoxious flashing dome on top can be disabled.
    January 14, 2011 rideafelt says:
    Pros: Speed, reliability, USB port
    Cons: Bright blue connection light
    We replaced our 4 year old wireless-G router with this one and it has been a breakthrough in speed and reliability. I routinely connect at 300 Mbps compared with 54 Mbps with the old router. In addition, the connection has never dropped. I also like the USB port to connect our external hard-drive to our network. I highly recommend replacing your older Wireless-G router with this one. My only feedback to Netgear is that bright blue connection light doesn't need to be as big and bright - it can be distracting.
    January 14, 2011 Lou01 says:
    Pros: speed

    The directions are poor, The tech support is great. When you get it working you realize that this is a great improvment to your wireless network.

    Pros: works well
    Cons: lights on it are bright in the room at night.
    This item was recommended to me by a co-worker who fixes computers for company. It was more than I wanted to spend but came highly recommended. I had trouble installing disc and connecting wires. This was my first laptop and using a wireless router. But, I am not a computer geek either. So far so good. I had to reconnect to internet couple times when using it in basement.
    January 13, 2011 nopocketprotector says:
    Cons: Went on sale for $20 less on black friday.
    Replaced an old D-link 540 that decided it was done. Looked at different routers around this price range. Bought the Belkin and double checked reviews on it before returning it and deciding on the Netgear. Set up was a breeze. Great router for home networking.

    January 13, 2011 JWP3 says:
    Pros: Easy setup, dual band, fast speeds for price
    I use this to surf the web and to stream movies to my TV and I have not had any issues at all. Installation was easy and the Netgear customer service was a big help with the questions I did have.
    January 13, 2011 specialkd24 says:
    Pros: Price, Speed, Quality
    I bought this product on Black Friday and save $25 or $30. It has definitely been worth it, even if I had to stand in the check-out line an hour that day.
    My previous router was 7-8 years old and dying and I really didn't know what I was missing out on until I got this one. It is SO much faster overall. I easily stream video from the internet now, anywhere in my 2-story house.
    It was easy to set up, gave me some great options, and the security is great too.
    After 2 months I haven't had any issues, no drops, etc.
    I 100% recommend this product, it is great.
    January 13, 2011 WoodyGuy says:
    Pros: stability

    I had a belkin before this... kept needing to go downstairs to reset at least 2 times per week.....with this running now for several weeks, no more stability problems. Love it.
    January 13, 2011 RickMo says:
    Pros: The price that I paid
    Cons: Overall performance is lacking
    The LED lights are extremely annoying, but nothing that a little electrical tape can't correct. Performance is fair, although the PS3 occasionally loses connection. Other wireless devices seem to work flawlessly. The signal strength is pretty weak with a range of no more than 75 to 100 feet. It was easy to set up.
    January 13, 2011 greenmullet says:

    Had some issues with the installation, but once that was solved, it has worked great.
    January 12, 2011 Sully024 says:
    Pros: Ease of setup/use
    Cons: Price but again you get what you pay for
    I recently replaced a router due to increasing disconnects and so far have no issues with this product. i have a PC and Vonage modem connected to two of the LAN ports (and use QOS for Vonage and I've had no problems thus far). Also run multiple wireless devices (laptops, iMac, iPod, Android phone, Wii, Directv) with either G or N. I really like the traffic monitor feature that allows you to monitor the GB of data used on a monthly basis (since ISPs are starting to gage your usage) and we download movies through Directv or Amazon VOD.
    The interface is easy to use and understand. Better than others I've had in the past. After many router purchases, the phrase you get what you pay for I think applies well here.
    It did extend the range for my wireless G devices in my house. And for those who can't figure it out - you can turn off the lighted dome by tapping it once.

    January 12, 2011 EliteGamer65 says:
    Pros: Easy Setup and Reliable Operation
    Cons: some settings hard to understand
    I bought this router to replace a Wireless G router, and I have only one complaint...It takes some reading, research, and trial and error to get to know all it can do and how to set things through the Web-Based settings adjuster...Other than this, the router has worked flawlessly, giving me lightning Wireless connections across multiple platforms (LINUX, MAC, PC, Wii, PS3, XBOX360)...I have only had to reset it once, and that was my own error...I would highly recommend this router to others...Also, the range is outstanding with my furthest machine being about 40 feet away and one floor below the router...Most routers fail to perform at the 5GHz level, but not the Netgear WNDR3400...
    January 12, 2011 MAGirl says:
    Pros: Easy to setup, good value
    The router was easy to install, a good value for the money and has solved issued we had when using our prior router.

    Pros: Great performance, good price, easy setup and operation
    Cons: Nothing yet.
    I wanted a dual band N router that could provide full bandwidth to my Roku for watching movies on the TV and still get full bandwidth on my PCs. The Netgear router was the solution. It was under $100, set up was easy and provides great performance - 300MB. As long as it has a long life I'll be a happy camper. Also, the big blue light on top can be turned off by pushing it, simple on-off switch, unless you like being bathed in blue LED light.

    Bought two of these routers in the Thanksgiving sale. Set them up in two different houses. It is a great wireless router with easy setup and excellent range.
    January 12, 2011 riders99 says:
    Pros: speed, range, dual band
    Cons: price, but on par with others
    great router, especially if you're able to get it on sale. the flexibility it gives with its dual band capability is as great as its range. data travels well to all my devices within a large radius without a blip. setup is easy and hassle free. as always the greater the bandwidth the faster your router is able to transmit information.

    Pros: Used to get 3 bars (13mbs) connection with old 54mbs router and could only download at 300-400 kbs. With this router I get 100 % connection at 130MBS and download at 1.8 gig per second. Just as fast as if I was connected to the router.
    Cons: none

    Pros: Extremely easy setup.
    Cons: N/A
    Netgear is my choice for routers. I had previously had DSL and a Netgear router/modem. The DSL signal was so poor the speed was no better then dial-up. All the techs that were sent out by AT&T said that the speed problems were on their side. So dumped DSL and went with cable for the internet. We have 4 desktops 2 that are connected by wireless, 2 Samsung bluray players connected by wireless, and a Xbox 360 also wireless, and several laptops with the computers on and the Xbox on, we were are able to download Netflix movies to the bluray players and never experience any stuttering of the movies when being played at all. Netgear has never let me down yet.

    Pros: Great Range, Great Price, Easy to connect Devices
    Cons: Resource CD that came with it is basically worthless...Just use the site for setup
    This router works great for me as I use it with the Netgear Universal WiFi Internet Adapter to connect my Samsung BluRay, Samsung 46"LCD, and my DirectTV HD DVR (all of these products downstairs) and my router is upstairs in my office with the door closed. Excellent signal and no interruptions--Have streamed Netflix movies using my BluRay and works great! No problems at all here!

    Pros: The router works now, setup 5 computers easily enough. Signal strength okay not great.
    Cons: Tech at Netgear is terrible! Now on 9th call and 9th time I am disconnected. I asked politely to speak to a supervisor to ask for help and was told I would be charged for level 2 or 3 service. I was able to work out the issue myself but after 2 hours of frustration and I know what I am doing, Shame on Netgear!

    Cons: Small WiFi bubble, Horribly tedious set up.
    I work in health care and consider myself semi-advanced computer user.
    So, I am not afraid to tweek "advanced settings" if need be and I got this router and was excited that I finally got something good and that it was a "High Performance".
    Yes it worked, yes it had more than adequate download speed, however, it took more than an hour and a half with tech support (first 3 months free) to set up and my 2.4GHz signal strength was less than half (33-75%) what my STANDARD ISSUE mail order Qwest router/modem was (always 100%.) Tech support was great and answered all my questions and took the time to understand my needs. Which is priceless.

    I set up this router for two wired computers, a backup hard drive, a network printer, a wireless printer and two wireless computers. Was easy to work through the screens on the router pages and the explanations along the side of the screen provided all the info that I needed.

    This router is being returned. Our older, cheaper Netgear router maintained the wireless connections much better than this one does. My children's iPod touches and laptops are always losing their wireless connections with this router. In addition, they don't get the signal as far from our house as they got with our older Netgear WGR614.
    December 4, 2010 michele5389 says:
    Pros: N Technology
    Cons: Jumpy, hard to setup
    I picked this router up tonight and it appears to be a little "jumpy". I am in the same room as the router on a Macbook Pro and websites are a little hesitant. My son is running his PS3 and he said the same thing. Previously I had a Buffalo G and wanted to take advantage of the N+ technology I am paying for through Comcast. I am going to try a few more settings tomorrow and if I can not get this thing to work better, it is going back to the store.
    Also, it is MUCH easier if you opt to tell the system you do not have the disk for install. For some reason, the setup disk could not recognize my IP address from Comcast.
    November 28, 2010 TJprinter says:
    Pros: USB slot on the router so you can connect external harddrive to it
    Cons: Bright Blue light that flickers when someone is using the router!!!
    Had an old Linksys and saw this on sale for Black friday and said why not get something new and fancy.
    It looks good and easy to setup and has a usb slot on it. Right now I have my destop, two laptops hooked up on the network and a 2 TB external harddrive hooked up to the router directly. So now I am able to access the external harddrive with out having a computer on which is just hands down awesome.
    Only issue with it is the big bright Blue light. It will keep blinking because of computer activity. At first it looked awesome but after awhile it got annoying but for 59 bucks I can live with it

    I had to replace a Belkin wireless router that stopped worker after 15 months - just 3 months out of warranty. This router was on sale and I didn't want another Belkin. I had my network back up and running within 20 minutes! What a breeze!
    And it's been working great for about a week now with no problems (knock on wood!).
    I would recommend this to anyone!

    This is a great router, plain and simple. No problems setting up. In fact, I was up and running in just about 15 minutes. I'm not sure why the other people had issues and gave this router bad reviews. If you google it, you will see it is a great item. I have two laptops, PS3, XBOX 360 slim, and WII all hooked up and no issues at all. If you are a gamer, this is a no brainer purchase!!

    October 24, 2010 Jeff says:
    Our 5 year old netgear router was starting to flake out and having trouble staying connected to our ISP. So, I decided it was time to upgrade. First off, problem solved. Connected once since I installed the router and has stayed connected ever since. Love (!!) the Guest wireless feature. Don t have any 5ghz wireless-n devices, so I really haven t tried that yet, but streaming Netflix to the xbox is soo much faster than over 802.11g. Worst thing I can say about this router is the blue LED s in a ring on the side blink with network activity. Sure it s cool looking, but when the room is dark it s irritating. Maybe there s a way to turn them off, but I haven t figured it out yet.
