1 out of 5 eggsnetgear routers

Pros: none

Cons: not pleased with a recent order - took 11 days to recieve and when opened both routers were obviously used/returned without much concern about resell-able condition. one of the two didn't have the instruction/warranty docs in the box and was visibly scratched from having the packaging material removed. I am not impressed! I think I should have just gone to a local big box store for these products. I want my money back.

1 out of 5 eggsLook elsewhere

Pros: Maybe for the 5GHz

Cons: I've had this router for about 3 years and it has never worked well. It would always drop the 2.4GHz connections and would not reconnect. The 5GHz connections work OK if you are close (20-30ft). This router does not work at all if used as the Gateway router (between the cable modem and a 2nd wireless router). If used as the Gateway, then ALL connections will drop after a day or two. Resetting, reflashing, etc. will not help. I have moved this router out of the gateway position and replaced it with a $20 TrendNet. I also used an AirLink101 router as gateways and never had the disconnect issues. I only use this router for 5GHz streaming. Connecting a USB flash drive to stream video over 5GHz works well.

I've had this router since v1.0.0.25 and upgraded thru every release and to the final v1.0.0.48 and unfortunately continued to have 2.4GHz connection drops and could not use the gateway. Don't use this Wireless AP for 2.4GHz - You'll be disappointed.

3 out of 5 eggsradio death still?

Pros: Can load 3rd party firmware, run a RAID NAS

Cons: 2.4ghz radio death.. really?

Other Thoughts: The WNDR3700's were plagued with the 2.4ghz radio death, seems like they didn't fix it in the WNDR3800. Just after a year the router just locked up, rebooted, now you have to stand right next to it to get any kind of signal.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware - block some websites!!

Pros: At this point - nothing

Cons: Unfortunately, human nature seems to be that negative reviews are only written when emotions are high - and this review is no exception. I am seething with frustrastion and rage at this router which has decided to block random websites for NO reason. The most important site it will not connect to is Agnitum. Really, Netgear?!?!?

Other Thoughts: Sure, I can spend my days and nights farting around with alternate firmware like Tomatoe or DD-WRT, but why should I have to to make it work correctly?? I've looked through the Netgear forums, tried all the tips, and discouragingly see that others have the same problem. I will NEVER buy another Netgear product again. I recently gave a generic $20 router I had laying around to a friend and note it has never ever given him any trouble. That router has been discontinued, so it's back to the drawing board again - shopping for a new router. Thanks for nothing, Netgear!

1 out of 5 eggsdone with netgear

Pros: I ordered a refurbished unit back in August and was pleasantly surprised with how quick it was and the great coverage it provided. About two weeks ago I noticed that my signal went from 4 bars down to one bar and at times to no connection. It would also kick out my devices. Last week it finally killed over with a blinking green power light, which means the firmware is corrupted. I went thru the necessary steps with tftp to upload the latest firmware, but it's dead. After looking online, it looks like this unit is prone to 2.4 GHz rafdio failures. I had paid around $75 for this router. After 15 years of netgear products, I replaced it with a TP link router for $19, which has been giving me great speeds and coverage.

Cons: Look above

5 out of 5 eggsI dumped linksys for Netgear!

Pros: I use dd wrt on this router and I love that I can mess around with settings and not have any worries about bricking it since dd wrt is still buggy. I can easily recover it in failsafe mode. With an old linksys (the purple WRT54G) I once had to short circuit pins on a chip to resurrect it from bricking-- and I never want to do that again!

Speaking of dd wrt, the original netgear firmware that comes with this router is actually beautiful and modern, and pretty customizable. I think there's also an easy setup version. I should have stuck to that, but I have been using dd wrt for years so I went with it.

I didn't really buy it for the dual band and I totally forgot about the 5ghz dual band broadcasting until I got a new phone and hooked up a roku player and I saw the name I had set up a while ago! 5ghz is nice and fast even though I live in a wifi congested area. I guess it's great for now since no one else has 5ghz.

Cons: I dont know if it's my computers or ddWRT but I always have problems with DHCP, even on my other netgear router and on my older linksys routers. I just set the gaming computer towers with static IPs and wired to the router and my wireless printer is also set to a static ip-- and I dont have any disconnecting.

Other Thoughts: I love these! I have this version, the WNDR3800, and the WNDR3500. The wndr3500 has been running for years and still going strong, and this version, that I have now had for a while, still up and running!

This is probably a dumb reason, but I stopped buying linksys routers when they started making them into weird rounded shapes. I like that these netgear routers are box shaped and the stands are detachable so I can stack things on top of them. I have my modem stacked on mine currently, and the other one I own had a skull put on top for weight since all the cables attached to it were pulling it off the shelf

2 out of 5 eggsDied after 15 months.

Pros: Worked great, fast, good range, easy setup, required very little power cycling (none in recent memory)

Cons: Died after 15 months of light usage.

Other Thoughts: Router worked great for 15 months. Then one day I could not connect, realized the router was making an audible buzz when the power was turned on. Range was very weak even from 1ft away, connection drops every 10min. The router is simply dead. I would have rated it very highly if it had lasted longer. I am replacing it with this: which may technically be a downgrade, but hopefully will last longer.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with OpenWRT

Pros: Bought to use with OpenWRT. I have two of these that have been running for 9 months at this point and they're going strong.

I upgraded from a WRT54GS and WRT54GL. These have more memory and are much faster.

I could be wrong, but as far as I can tell, you can't brick these. The installation of OpenWRT was pretty straightforward.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There is a header on the main circuit board with a serial port on it. I wired up a connector and mounted a DB-9 connector on the back panel. It works just fine, but the real purpose of this is to act as a serial terminal. If everything else fails, you can hook up a serial cable to the port and see what's going on as it tries to boot. You can also connect in to the console this way. As I said before, you really can't brick the router, so you really don't need this. I did it for another reason:

On my old WRT54GS, I had two serial ports, one of which I connected to a UPS. The WRT54GS ran NUT, and sent out network messages when the UPS was on battery. I intended to do the same with the WNDR3800. Because it only had one serial port, it will always output the console output to the serial port on boot. So, if the router reset, it would send a bunch of stuff to the UPS, changing the configuration of the UPS. Bottom line, the lack of a second serial port means that you really can only use the serial port for a console, or some device that can tolerate the output on boot.

2 out of 5 eggsConsider before buying

Pros: Easy to setup.
Worked fine for 6 months.
Bought for decent reviews & USB drive capability

Cons: Failed after 6 months.
Consider that this Netgear router has a 1 year warrenty, BUT they only provide free support for 90 days. So here's the catch. The router fails (it won't even respond to the "Factor Settings" reset). Support will not provide a return authorization unless you hook it up so they canrun diagnostics. But beyond 90 days you have to pay them for their support service. Also when you go to their support pages you get annoying ads popping up. One customer permanently gone.

1 out of 5 eggsNot happy with this router

Pros: None

Cons: It was hard to find a good, stable firmware for this router. V worked best for me. Router needed fairly frequent reboots to remain usable. After about one year of running, the 5GHz channel just stopped working. 2.4 GHz channel still works.
