2 out of 5 eggsNETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router

Pros: Connected to the internet. Was cheap but really should have been cheaper (in price).

Cons: Cheap - really, really flimsy. Hope it never falls over. I don't think this thing is gigabit fast, I think my old router was/is at least as fast. I've seen it cheaper since I got it. Really bad setup. My ethernet wired speed has really slowed since I installed it since my modem has only one plug-in and I have to route through it.

Other Thoughts: Keep shopping.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Sue, can you tell us what firmware version is running on the WNR3500L? What kind of speeds were you seeing from your old router in comparison to the WNR3500L? Have you tried changing any settings to improve performance?

Please get in touch with us at newegg@netgear.com and we'll be happy to assist.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

2 out of 5 eggsDSL Modem?

Pros: Nice Box. Specs look good.

Cons: This came up under the search for "dsl modem" on the website. The box shows a yellow "Internet Port", but unfortunately that is for an ethernet-style plug, not connectible to a DSL line it appears.

Other Thoughts: Kind of disgusted with Myself. Why the search function puts up a wireless router as a result of a DSL modem search is a mystery, and I should have looked closer. I was in a hurry to get a replacement modem and saw "DSL" in the product description. Now I have a wireless router which I really have no need for and still need a dsl backup modem.
Can't really give it a lot of stars since I have no way of evaluating it, but can't really give it a single star since I can not claim it does not work well. Compromised at two stars and will just put it on a shelf somewhere since I can not use it.
Now back to looking for a *real* DSL modem.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Techneer,

You are correct in that the WNR3500L is not a DSL modem or combination DSL modem/router (although we do offer products that are)

We'll speak with Newegg about the search issue you experienced -- and you can work with Newegg to perform an exchange to get something that will work with you.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

5 out of 5 eggsIt just works

Pros: You plug it in and it works. My last router put up a fight every time there was a hiccup in the internet service. This one just reconnects with no problem. Throughput is sufficient for all my needs.

Cons: I haven't found any yet. I've had it for about six months and have had to restart it maybe three times. That's a LOT less than my last one.

3 out of 5 eggsReliable with an easy setup - but poor Wi-Fi signal range

Pros: - Easy setup
- Preset wireless security
- Nice design
- Gigabit wired speed
- Low price

Cons: - Poor Wi-Fi range
- Weak internal antennae

Other Thoughts: This router is cheap and will provide you with good wired speed, but if you're looking for a great Wi-Fi connection, you may want to look elsewhere unless you live in a studio apartment. I have a pretty small place, and in the next room, I will often be reduced to 1 bar of wi-fi. It does not support dual-band either.

The internal antennae is fairly weak, so if you're looking for a decent signal strength, you may not get it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey Doppelganger,

We will be happy to take a look at your WNR3500L for you please get in contact with us when you can. You can reach us by email at newegg@netgear.com-- be sure to add all of the details you mentioned aboved.

We are very sorry that your signal seems to be poor and hope to get it fixed right away.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

2 out of 5 eggsJust not quite worth it, sadly.

Pros: It's N. It technically supports 3rd party firmware. CPU and RAM is fast and plentiful.

Cons: Buggy to flash with a 3rd party FW. I've bricked mine twice in 2 flashing attempts via the web interface. The point of this router is supposed to be the 3rd party FW support.

Other Thoughts: It just doesn't quite do what it's supposed to do. I have the v2, and it just does not want to be flashed. It will say everything went fine, and then BRICKED. Only way to fix it is to get a serial cable and TFTP the FW I tried through the web UI. This just doesn't make sense, and it is not uncommon. Search the web for countless examples of what I just explained.

I bought this to replace a WRT54GL that was years old. Well, yesterday I tried to upgrade the WNR3500L to a new FW. You think I'd have learned by now. But, no. I am typing this from behind my trusty old WRT54GL running the same FW that bricked (again) the WNR3500L.

So, well, just buy a WRT54GL instead. Who really needs 300Mb/s WiFi and Gbit LAN anyway? I would say most people don't.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey Sketchman,

We will be glad to help you with advanced support-- please email us at newegg@netgear.com with a copy and paste of your review.

Our sincere apologies for the problems you are having with the WNR3500L-- we hope to hear from you soon to get you a replacement or whatever is needed.

Regards,

1 out of 5 eggsMostly Useless

Pros: I'm not sure that there are any. It routes 10/100 traffic over ethernet pretty well, I guess.

Cons: -The wifi module caps out at about 1mbps. Can't get it to go higher
-Setup is painful, and the GUI is slow
-You have to actually log into the router itself and tell it to "set up internet" if you add a new WAN connection. This one took me about 30 minutes to figure out.

Other Thoughts: I'm pretty disappointed here. For, what, $90, I'd expect something better. Last time I buy Netgear. I suppose it's Linksys or Asus from now on.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey DeRais,

We are very sorry for the frustrations and want to let you know that we are here to help you and are sorry that your wifi is capping out so low. Whenever you get a chance please email us at newegg@netgear.com with a copy and paste of your review.

2 out of 5 eggsBought two

Pros: One of them still works. Haven't tried DD-WRT or OpenWRT yet.

Cons: None. QoS doesn't work very well and one of them is completely dead 33 days after purchase from here so I can't return it. It was only hooked up and running for about two weeks and one day there were no lights on at all, I tried a different AC adapter but still no lights. I won't buy any more of these, the money I spent on two to get one could have bought me a better one with a warranty.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey Groupers,

We are very sorry to hear that one of your WNR3500L's isn't working. Please get in contact with us right away so that we can get you a replacement-- you can reach us at support.netgear.com. You can also email us for advanced assistance at newegg@netgear.com.

If you have any questions please let us know.

4 out of 5 eggsLasted 2 1/2 years

Pros: Gigabit ethernet ports - good support for 3rd party firmware- good feature set for price - upgrade from previous router

Cons: Started losing WAN connection after working fine for 2 1/2 years.

Other Thoughts: Replaced stock firmware with TomatoUSB and installed router in 2/2012. Did everything I wanted until it started intermittently losing the WAN connection in 9/2014. Traced problem to router after connecting cable modem directly to computer. Great while it lasted.

2 out of 5 eggsOK Basic router, with some shortcomings

Pros: Gigabit interfaces, separate WiFi SSID for "Guests", WiFi Scheduling, Static Routing, QoS, USB port.

Cons: Some of the features that are advertised only working partially, with weird, yet serious shortcomings. Examples:
- The "guest SSID" cannot be configured with a different schedule than the "main SSID". This is very inconvenient and up to a point defies the purpose of having the "guest" SSID.
- It is advertised to support "site blocking" (basic feature), but that only works for web sites that use http. For the increasing number of sites built using https, the blocks get bypassed and traffic goes through, no problem!
- The "Parental Control" feature is based on a third party / cloud based traffic filtering / policing service. It is an added potential bottleneck / point of failure, and it's not parents controlling their kids, it is Big Brother controlling both the parents and the kids.
- The Logs are recording access requests based on MAC addresses, not based on URLs, which renders the Logs almost useless (unless you know the MAC addresses of the servers on the websites you are visiting).

Other Thoughts: Support is nice and polite if you can get to them, but 90 days after the date of purchase they start charging for answering your call.
If you don't care about the shortcomings listed above, you may like it. I would give it 3 eggs, but one gets shadowed by the fact that after talking to their support, the manufacturer seems to be aware of the shortcomings, yet continue to advertise those features as being fully functional.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello DW,

You are right in that you are no longer eligible for phone support after 90 days, however you can still email us for assistance.

The standard NETGEAR warranty is as follows:

1 year hardware warranty
90 days phone support
Email support is valid for warranty support period

If you would like advanced assistance with your WNR3500L please email us at newegg@netgear.com. Provide a copy and paste of your review and any of the case numbers that support gave you.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

1 out of 5 eggsWNR2000

Pros: None

Cons: Tech support is terrible by phone or internet. I was disconnected five times after being put on hold. The router has connection issue with the modem. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I can't even get a hold of a person to send this piece of junk back.

Other Thoughts: Never will I buy a Netgear product.

Manufacturer Response:

Please email us at newegg@netgear.com with the case numbers you received from support as well as any additonal information you can include about your WNR2000(or WNR3500L). Whichever product you are using.

We can'tt apologize enough for the problema and hope to hear from you soon.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team
