3 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review.

Pros: Still evaluating usit. Can't comment yet.

Cons: Ugly as Bill Cosby's newborn son. Read Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Had two problems with this router. 1. When the brand new Mac Book Pro tried to connect, I kept seeing an "Invalid Password" error, even though I knew the password was correct. My Samsung Note II phone connected fine, as did my Samsung and Lenovo laptop.

Also discovered that after a few days, the router wouldn't respond at all to connection attempts. Didn't even see the invalid password error. Rebooting fixed this one.

Called Netgear Tech support. The person on the phone would only lead me to the WPA-2 password page to check what was there. No other knowledge or suggestions. Less than useful.

Both problems solved via web search, and experience.

1. Apple computers seem to not like any capital letters in the middle of the SSID. I had set an SSID of "ObamaNet". When I changed this to "Obamanet", the Mac Book Pro connected instantly, and no longer showed the Invalid Password problem. Both Apple and Netgear techs had never seen this before.

2. Before you do ANYTHING with this router, update the firmware. The firmware on shipped units is buggy as heck. Updating the firmware seems to have fixed the second problem.

I'm willing to cut Netgear slack for shipping buggy firmware, and not knowing about the case problem with the SSID, but the tech support person should have suggested updating the firmware as a first step. In fact, if anyone calls Netgear tech support, the first order of business should be a firmware update.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't like Apple. Horrible tech support from NG.

Pros: High speed service when it works. Easy to configure interface.

Cons: Unstable. Requires rebooting weekly. Also, Apple doesn't like password many times, and refuses to connect. Netgear tech support could only check the spelling of the password configured on the unit. No other tech support skills. No understanding of WPA-2 handshaking, or troubleshooting. Unit getting returned for a different brand.

Apple network experts troubleshot unit. No problem seen on their end.

Other Thoughts: If you have a Mac, you might want to try something else.

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize that support was unable to assist you and want to offer further assistance. When you get a chance please email us at newegg@netgear.com with a copy and paste of your review. Also include any case numbers that you received from support.

Hope to hear from you soon.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's all In the Firmware!!

Pros: This is monster of a router, If you install the right firmware on it.

Cons: Unfortunately, If you use the factory firmware it's gonna be disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Search for DD-WRT R 7000. should be the first link to pop up but its from myopenrouter, and your router will become the beast the engineers designed it to be.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Ready for Prime Time

Pros: Easy setup
Genie App
looks cool I guess..

Cons: Not reliable. Signal drops and connection loses to most Wifi enabled devices in my household; Netgear N bridge devices, Multiple N PC's and other various items. There also seems to be an issue with wired networking as well. My HDHomerun boxes became unstable when I moved to this router.

Other Thoughts: I was really hoping the other negative reviews were isolated and i would get a good unit. I guess I was wrong. My other Netgear router was stable but I wanted more bandwidth. Even upgraded to the new Netgear firmware and still no luck.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Router

Pros: Easy setup with Genie...I let it set my internet up and then went in and changed the wifi portion, port forwarding etc. Has decent features. Its easy to use. Has 2.4, 5ghz and guest options for wireless. Its fast with good range.

Cons: A little expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I have implemented this router at our small work area with Opendns filtering and it has been working great for 6 month's. This marks 2 in a row i have gotten functioning units on arrival, so if you get one that works, it should be stable. I have not witnessed and random/frequent disconnects. If you are getting them, I suggest updating firmware or perhaps it could be defective.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate: Drops connection and high ping

Pros: When it works, it works great..

Cons: This is an update... The first couple days it was running fine... now it just keeps dropping connection and/or HIGH ping which freezes the connection for like 30 sec then goes back to normal... I already updated to newest firmware and reset to factory settings.. When this thing works, it works GREAT. This router is just unreliable to hold a connection stable. Wish you guys provide firmware fix... I've already seen this kind of problem on other forums.

Other Thoughts: When it works, it works great. When it doesn't, its not worth your money.

1 out of 5 eggsUnrelieable

Pros: When it works it's very good. Problem is that it doesn't work that much.

Cons: Please research before you buy this router and then buy something else. There are posts all over other websites and NewEgg regarding consistently dropping wireless clients. It is an unreliable router and NetGear seems unable or unwilling to fix it. In fact, in the midst of all the problems, they released a newer advanced router.

Basically, if you have a wireless printer or wireless PC's, they will be dropped. A reboot will temporarily fix the problem. I have Apples, Epsons, and HP's connected and they get dropped at all points and distances from the router.
This is not an isolated issue. At least 20% of the people posting comments here and at other websites have had the same issue. And several have worked with netgear through phone and email with no resolution.

Manufacturer Response:
