5 out of 5 eggsDD-WRT, Tomato, who cares!

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: Strong signal throughout my 1300 square ft home, and at least a fair signal at the far reaches of my 13,000 square ft lot. v2 is faster than v1 with a stronger signal. Newegg is shipping v2 while some other online retailers are sticking you with the old one.

Cons: Deleting the WPS pin is necessary for security, yet the light stays on after doing so. If you turn it off after deleting the pin, your devices won`t connect.

Other Thoughts: Much like the WNDR3700 in signal range and speed, yet half the price. Wait you say, it doesn`t have a 5GHz band! So what? I had a WNDR3700v4, and 5G was useless. It would lose the connection randomly, and my phone would revert back to the 2.4 GHz band. THAT band was always stable, and the range was twice as far. Range and speed are identical with this model, so why pay more? I only use wi-fi for my phones and tablets, everything else is hardwired. Keep that in mind if you have bigger wi-fi needs. This is after all, only a mid range model. If you can run cat 6 wires to all of your devices, do so. Speeds are fantastic from the gigabit ports, even when using an additional switch! Netgear seems to be the only router brand that doesn`t need constant reboots too.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT ACTUALLY COMPATIBLE WITH DD-WRT AS OTHER ROUTERS

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: It worked as it was supposed to out of the box

Cons: IS NOT ACTUALLY IN THE NEWEST SUPPORTED DD-WRT Distros!! The product name is a LIE!

Other Thoughts: So I had this thing for a couple months in an apartment complex with Time Warner crummy ISP. We had been paying for the El Cheapo service (2 mbps down, tin cans connected by strings up). Still it was fine until about a couple days ago when possibly I dunno, somebody else's router was interfering or for some reason the wireless was dropping a lot and not performing well at all. unusuable. This was all using the default firmware. So I remembered back that the reason I bought this thing was cause it said "DD-WRT" in the description. Well, guess what: IT is NOT supported (the v2 version anyways) by any of the latest DD-WRT images! just do your homework. I tried tomato, and, though the forums seemed to all indicate it was hunky dory for tomato, the firmware flash went for about an hour, never recovered, and I ended up bricking it. :( Yeah, possibly my fault. BUT: The fact remains: you have to jump through several hoops, finagle your way to a DD-WRT image on this thing, in spite of the fact that it has "DD-WRT" in the name. Thus, one egg.

Just do yourself a favor and get the LinkSys WRT54GL.

5 out of 5 eggsgood wifi router

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: Have had V1 operating on main house network for more than 3 years. Has worked flawlessly under heavy usage. Supports work and game streaming with no issues. Bought a V2 for backup.

Cons: Not a con but would like little more wifi range. But running with extender works well.

Other Thoughts: good performance for the price. no network issues at all.

5 out of 5 eggsGeek's ultimate low cost highend wireless router

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: 128Mbyte Flash and 128Mbyte RAM
Gbit WAN port, 4x Gbit LAN ports
Wireless 300N
USB shared-port function
Unbelievable sale from Newegg

Cons: Claimed DD-WRT support, but DD-WRT current support is WNR3500Lv1, v2 not yet,

Other Thoughts: Please note that Newegg is selling the new and improved 128MB flash and 128MB RAM WNR3500Lv2, not the old v1 with 8MB flash and 32MB RAM.

From the netgear web gui, I can flash the Shibby tomato all-in-one firmware directly, tomato-Netgear-3500Lv2-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x--124-AIO.chk, almost 16MB file size. The tomato firmware allows me to share USB storage with DLNA function with no problem.

I using the WNR3500Lv2 as a router and DLNA server with wireless off, then two old WNR3500Lv1 running DD-WRT as gigabit switches and also serve as wireless access point. When Newegg have the WNR3500Lv2 on sale again, I will get more and run them in tomato mode as gigabit switches, distributed DLNA server and distributed wireless AP. If the router dies, I just yank the out the switch mode and use it as the main router.

5 out of 5 eggsnice unit

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: This item was very affordable when I got it. Does what it needs to do when I'm online from video to gaming to downloading large files with no problem. My previous robber was a Belkin and 150 and when I plug this one and it blew my mind how fast it was. The range on this unit is very nice also can cover about two houses put together.

Cons: Could've came with an antenna but it didn't.

1 out of 5 eggsProceed with Caution

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: Its a wireless router that works ok. Plus I did upload a decent firmware, tomato 1.28 (Shibby version) to replace factory firmware.

Cons: If you use static (local) I.P's, you have to change them to auto (DHCP). Which Netgear sums-up with 1-line in their literature, basically saying that the use of static local IP addresses is not common,,, period. Thats it. Good luck finding third-party firmware that you don't have to compile yourself, after you buy a USB to TTL CABLE which you'll need to debrick router.

Other Thoughts: You'll probably need USB to TTL console, because this thing bricks at the drop of a hat and router needs 3.3 volts meaning regular USB cable won't work. There may be some third-party-firmware available, most of it is for v1, or older v2's (mini.chk), with less memory. Experience with this router = not pleasant. Decided to keep after installing tomato 1.28. tough decision.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Impressions

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: +You dont have to reboot to apply settings
+IPv6 compatable
+covers our entire house at 4-5 bars (a normal sized 3 bedroom home.)
+Runs at advertised speeds

Cons: -None so far

Other Thoughts: Our previous router was a dir-655 and it was doing the random reboot thing, this seems to have similar specs without the QoS 2MBit limit.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprised and Impressed with this Affordable Router

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: So far this router is fantastic. It was insanely easy to set up, and out of the box they have a semi-random SSID and random passphrase printed on the router if you don't want to do much in the way of setup.

I customized the subnet, a few port forwards, the SSID, guest SSID, and passphrases really in a matter of about 15 minutes. The signal strength throughout the house is hugely improved over my previous router, a D-Link DIR-655. I was surprised since there's no external antenna/e.

Cons: I can't really think of any cons yet. Hopefully router continues to work this well for a few years - routers have a tendency to eventually require daily reboots.

Other Thoughts: About the "Open-Source"... DD-WRT's page will say that support is a work in progress for this version (WNR3500L v2). But, if you do some googling you can find firmware that is supposed to work. I think people have had luck with OpenTomato. There is a $10 off code today, so rather than buy a used one for experimentation I'm going to just get a second new one. Then I don't have to risk messing up our Internet while I try the whole Open-Soure thing.

1 out of 5 eggsStill not OK

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: Nada

Cons: Doesn't like to be flashed. Bricked twice in 2 flashing attempts via the web interface. Don't give me a web interface to flash with if I can't use it. Seems like such a simple concept.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to update since I contacted Netgear about my unit. First off, the email address they keep posting doesn't work, so it's just a PR tactic that they keep throwing it out.

Once I managed to get them they said a refurbished unit doesn't get the same support as a new one. Strange given the definition of refurbished, but what do I know.

Anyway, once they found out it was a refurb, they refused support and suggested I search online forums for help. Yeah, did that already. Didn't help.

Overall, I'm not impressed with this product or Netgear in general. Went back to Linksys/Cisco, and I'll never buy another Netgear product if I can help it.
