1 out of 5 eggsNetgear is the worse company ever

This review is from: Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router with 3.5" Storage Bay (WNDR4700)

Pros: None

Cons: Wifi disconnects when more than 5 smartphones connected

Other Thoughts: I bought two of this router when it was on sale with a rebate. I bought it for $60 each after rebate. First time I used it, I tried them both and both of them has wifi issues (only for smartphones) when I have more than 5 smartphones connected to it, but the ethernet and wifi for laptops still works.

I contacted their customer support on this and they refused to help me online via chat cause I didn't have my proof of purchase so I sent them a screenshot and they said I have to be approved first. They can't help me even when I sent them a screenshot of my proof of purchase.

Few days later, I received an email from their customer support asking me about my problem. They asked me what's wrong with it and I explained it to them via email. I upgraded the firmware, followed the steps they provided, etc, and still has the same problems.

Finally, we chatted through the phone, and they were asking me more questions and provided steps to follow. I followed the steps and stayed on the phone thinking that they would at least provide me with a replacement/refund free of charge. After one hour on the phone with them, they said they won't replace/refund it free of charge. I have to pay for shipping out of my own pocket.

Luckily, I found two buyers for the router. I didn't lose any money. If I sent in the router, I would have lost $10-20 bucks and received another defective (99.9%) router since it's the same model.

I would expect something I buy brand new to be working, if it wasn't working, I wouldn't have bought it in the first place.

I would suggest buyers to stay away from this product and the Netgear company.

I see deals on Netgear router all the time. I really like the deals, but since they have bad customer service and I had a bad experience, makes me stay away from Netgear. I won't ever spend a penny on Netgear.

I'm pretty sure I had more knowledge about routers than the customer support.

By the way, the customer support person I spoke to from Netgear is the Team Manager named John. Expert ID: 46008. He ended up hanging up on me.

1 out of 5 eggsnot worth the $

This review is from: Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router with 3.5" Storage Bay (WNDR4700)

Pros: 3.5" bay is cool, ive never owned a router with nas built in. which is the main reason i bought it. unfortunately, it is probably the worst router ive ever owned.

Cons: wifi range is horrendous, both bands. the 2.4Ghz is bad and 5.0Ghz is darn near useless unless you are right next to it. neatgear firmware interface is slow and laggy. it will screw up your hard drive (if applicable) i wouldn't advise putting one in there. hard wired is ok at times after several resets but ONLY if Wifi features are turned off. which defeats the purpose of this router.

Other Thoughts: netgear tech support is non-existent, im sorry im not fluent in Bengali, Telugu or whatever Indian language they outsourced the support to. i speak english.
in conclusion. dont waste your money or time on this router. if you have unfortunately bought this i would save all the packaging and invoice you will need it. it will come in handy when you return it.

1 out of 5 eggsLots of features, little quality

This review is from: Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router with 3.5" Storage Bay (WNDR4700)

Pros: Built in NAS, high transfer speeds

Cons: WAN port failed after 9 months. Kind of important

Other Thoughts: I bought this router because it had the perfect combination of things I'm looking for: hard drive bay, USB 3.0 ports (perfect for a media center PC storage), N900, decent range. I did NOT expect that, after 9 months, the WAN port would be deceased. I have a support ticket in to Netgear, but after seeing the negative experiences by others here, i'm not overly optimistic.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY THIS

This review is from: Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router with 3.5" Storage Bay (WNDR4700)

Pros: None

Cons: Failed within one year of ownership. Netgear refused to honor their own warranty and replace product.

Other Thoughts: I will NEVER gain own a netgear product. I strongly advise that you avoid buying anything Netgear. This router has been nothing but a huge problem since the get go. It is loud, runs very hot, and often requires hours of down time in order to "reset." The software that came with the router caused extreme system lag and connectivity issues often reducing ISP speed by up to 40%. When I contacted Netgear about the issues and tried to obtain and RMA, I was given the run around for months. Now the unit is out of warranty and they won't even discuss replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsmy dream router is junk

This review is from: Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router with 3.5" Storage Bay (WNDR4700)

Pros: It is great having nas storage and a router in one unit. The storage has less issues then the router did.

Cons: Doesn't work as a router. There are so many times when even the wired machines on my network would not work. Even after many reboots.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

This review is from: Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router with 3.5" Storage Bay (WNDR4700)

Pros: None

Cons: Does not support DD-WRT or Tomato firmware.
Tech support at Netgear TOTALLY clueless.
DOA.

Other Thoughts: Netgear has the worst customer service ever. Not only that, the way they make YOU work, just to get some customer service is atrocious . They have no technical experience, and read off a script.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst wireless router that I ever own

This review is from: Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router with 3.5" Storage Bay (WNDR4700)

Pros: Price.
Parental control is harder to get around by my teenager. Blocking facebook is much easier in this unit.

Cons: This unit replaced my trusted Asus RT-N16. On this netgear unit, both 2.4 and 5GHZ wireless keep dropping every couple minutes. Both of these router are in the attic away from interfere such as phone, microwave. I now have to turn back on my old ASUS while waiting for Netgear solution ( which I don't expect much).

Other Thoughts: Parental control on this unit is only done by using openDNS. I could not find how to limit internet access using MAC address on per hour basic such as on ASUS
