2 out of 5 eggsReadyShare Feature NOT As Advertised!

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: Excellent feature set and capabilities.
Excellent wired and wireless networking.
Excellent ease of setup and configuration.

Cons: Absolutely horrid NAS (USB hard drive connectivity) feature, known as "readyshare".

Simply stated: This router has trouble detecting USB attached hard drives (via the port on the router itself).

After many hours of in depth troubleshooting and consultation with the manufacturer tech support, the verdict is in; the readyshare "feature" is all but totally broken. Of the thousands of USB storage devices available, readyshare supports a list of devices you can print on the back of a business card. Check their site (supported devices) for proof. The odds of readyshare working for any given application is extremely limited at best.

I tried many product combinations in addition to insuring there were no additional factors at play (various partition sizes, various filesystems, bad power supplies, bad cabling, etc.)

WD 1TB MyBook -- Didn't work. WD 4TB Red in Vantec NST-366S3-BK - Didn't work. Sandisk 8GB and 32GB thumb drives - Did work. SG 500GB in Vantec NST-366S3-BK - Did work. Various 500GB to 2TB hard drives in a number of other USB 1.1 and 2.0 enclosures -- 2 of 12 combinations worked, both combinations involved a different drive and different enclosures.

You'll read it elsewhere on the web and I can confirm it: The manufacturer's tech support personnel know very little about the readyshare feature. In the end, I discovered that they know it doesn't work properly and, apparently, they have no idea why. Hours of technical support sessions proved fruitless in resolving this issue.

Other Thoughts: Why 2 eggs and not 1? I gave it an extra egg because most features work excellently. However, I have a real problem recommending any product that does not perform completely as advertised. If a feature is broken, it should be removed, and certainly not advertised as a selling point.

Shame on you, Netgear.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a terribly reliable router

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: None that I can think of

Was free with Optimum service

Cons: 5g connection is very flakey, drops intermittently
Range is average, had Wi-Fi routers from early 2000 era with same range
Gets plenty hot over time, adequate spacing required
Flimsy stand, broke mine within 1 day

Other Thoughts: Not sure how much of the router performance is the router and how is the ISP

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsVery disappointing

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: Easy to set up. Good wireless coverage

Cons: Consistently drops connection. Reset with Windows 7 troubleshooting corrects but does not cure the problem. I've been working with Netgear for a month and have implemented all their recommendations to no avail. They claim to have Beta software which will correct the problem, but require the customer to sign an agreement assuming all risks of using it. Ridiculous. They will exchange the unit but require a $16 fee to do so. Also ridiculous. I'd stay away from this product if i were you.

Other Thoughts: Waste of money.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello W4MPS,

3 out of 5 eggsUnderwhelming, but solid

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: Great build quality
reliable, stable
plenty of features out of the box

Cons: Not gigabit
top gets smudges and fingerprints easily
blue WPS light a little annoying
costly
Not ddwrt capable (at least, not this revision)

Other Thoughts: I bought this router locally when my old one finally bit the dust. They didn't have a lot of options, so I went with this one. I assumed it was gigabit capable at this price point, but was wrong (obviously not the router's fault). Overall it's a fine product, but certainly won't win any awards from me in this price range. No issues going on over a year.

Manufacturer Response:

We thank you choosing the WNDR3400 and want to let you know that we are here to answer any questions. Our forums are a great place to troubleshoot and ask questions.

4 out of 5 eggsHard to hate when it's free.

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: It can be really cheap. It depends on where you buy it and when. It's got a bright light on it. It's cool looking for a while. You do not need a cd to setup. Just login to the router from a web browser.
I get great range on this router with both networks. 4 bars on 5ghz when I'm 50 feet from the router. The signal goes through 2 walls. My in-laws were picking up the 2.4ghz from the guest house about 200 feet away. wow.

Cons: 10/100m. The wifi pops after a while. 5ghz will just vanish. 2.4ghz will flicker. This can happen after a good 4-5 days of downloading stuff non-stop. The issue is resolved with a 10 second reset. For now. I can't figure a way to reset it from the admin page. First router I ever owned with no remote reboot function.

Other Thoughts: Picked one of these up at another website. The seller never confirmed the shipment. I got it for free. My last router was a E3000. It bricked after a month with ddwrt on it. That router lasted 3 years or so. Hopefully this one will last at least that long. I wouldn't spend more than 45 bucks on this.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks great, when it DOES.

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: pretty lights

Cons: After the first 6 months problems started to crop up. It has to be reset after a year about once a week or even less. This router drives me crazy! and it was not a cheapie!

Other Thoughts: Skip this gem and buy something else.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsNetGear N600 Dual band router

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: Easy Setup. Worked the first time.

Cons: Has a week signal that barely offers 2-3 bars at short ranges of less than 60 ft. A booster antenna on your computer or a router extender is required to get 4-5 bars.

Other Thoughts: Bought the Netgear Dual band WIFI range extender wall plug worked fine 1 day then the Router stop communicating with my Sat modem. Used old Cisco router and all worked fine rebooted and installed N600 again no signal to modem. Called tech support cut off twice and finally gave up once I read the reviews here I realized after rebooting, reseting several times that this is just a piece of junk and I was never happy with it anyway 7 months ago. It is not worth the money and reliability well I still wonder if the extender caused the problem or was it just coincidence that it failed after adding this device.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy it if you have a brain.

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: -High Bandwidth
-2.4 and 5 GHz channels
-Netgear reliability
-Super Simple to set up (Seriously, the cables have colored shapes on them and the manual has an entire diagram about where to put the shapes. Your grandma could set up this router.)
-Looks great

Cons: -Slight range problem with the 5 GHz channel but that's to be expected with any router.
- Gets a little warm while under load but nothing catastrophic.

Other Thoughts: To all the people complaining about this router not reaching across a room or burning holes through the floor : if you followed the kindergarten-level instructions, maybe that wouldn't happen. Just a thought.

1 out of 5 eggsFantastic, except when its not, and then it physically breaks.

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: Sleek design. Intuitive setup. Makes a nice paperweight

Cons: Hotter than the flames of hell even with complete 360 ventilation. This thing regularly dropped wireless connectivity until I dropped the transfer rate to its lowest settings, even for my PC that it was literally sitting on top of, so the broadcast range was less than 1 foot. Eventually, the wireless function became completely useless. While adding a WPS client, I made the mistake of trying to use the physical button (the big dome with annoying lights). At first, the button didn't move at all. No click. No bump. Nothing. Then it made an audible SNAP and began searching for the WPS client which connected perfectly, then it began searching for the WPS client, then it began searching for the WPS client. Nothing but a space heating brick at this point. Customer Support has been entirely useless so far and offered no help. I seriously want to send this thing back. Not worth the money.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsPoor signal

This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR3400-100NAS N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: lasted me 5 years so far

Cons: The coverage on this thing is terrible. In my small Houston apt it fails to provide coverage to my wife's laptop across the room. seriously no walls or anything, just fifteen open feet of air and she gets one bar. Although I've not had the connection issues others have had, this product is not adequate to fill a home with coverage. I am typing this in my bedroom on my phones 4g connection because my wifi router can't reach the twenty feet through one thin wall. I'd recommend looking elsewhere (linksys or d-link).

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about the poor signal and want to let you know that the WNDR3400 has a support page.
