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 isn't crashing/disconnecting all the time

Cons: Will not work wirelessly in n mode (145 and 300 mbps) giving download speeds of only a few dozen kB/s. Curiously, the LAN works at speeds of 1 MB/s in n mode (this is still ridiculously slow), so it must be a firmware issue. Confirmed that many people have this issue.

Other Thoughts: Haven't been able to test out gigbit yet, waiting to get another computer in here. If THAT doesn't work, I'm returning this and getting a 54GL.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as Advertised

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: - Works at advertised speeds
- Physically not very large, easy to hide
- USB port on rear to act as network drive
- Signal strength sufficient

Cons: - Out of box was only set to 150 mbps (ultimately speed is decided by your carrier)
- Signal not the best. Still much better than previous AT&T router though.
- Stand feels a little flimsy

Other Thoughts: Ultimately my cons were kind of picky. This router supported a skype call last night with no drops or major freezing, and I am running multiple devices on it already. Very happy with the product and the price I got it for.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate 4.5 years of use

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: Price, performance, reliability, speed

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is an update 4.5 years after ordering from this router from Newegg. It has performed flawlessly. I prefer to use Cat 6 connectors, but when friends stay with me, the wireless capability is perfect. Now that I have a Smart TV, the wireless capability is really useful. I highly recommend this product even though it's been around 5 years.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy

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: -Reasonable price

Cons: -Drops wireless MBPS for no reason.
-Genie software is unnecessary.
-Internal antenna is weak.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this router because of the favorable reviews, but it has a dark secret. I cannot get over 6mbps wireless rate!!! The rate drops randomly. You can change a few settings and it will speed up again, but not an hour later it drops back to under 6mbps.

I have 60mbps internet through Charter. My 6 year old Linksys WRT54G blows this thing out of the water. My computer is also only 5 feet away from the router through one wall.

I noticed frames dropping in H1Z1 (online game) and then Youtube videos were freezing while loading. I called my service provider to confirm my internet speed and then speed tests confirmed it is the router.

It has flaky software or firmware. I cannot pinpoint the problem, but just do some research and you will see it is a widespread problem.

I am so disappointed in the reviews of this router. Either people review prematurely, or have not looked into the actual wireless speeds they are getting.

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.

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.
