This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR4500-100PAS N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
Fast and simultaneous dual band. A lot of bells and whistles. Netgenie is fairly helpful for novice people and for pros.
This router drops signal quite often. Then the minute you lose power or have to reset the router, the firmware becomes corrupted and you have to go through this whole reinstallation of the firmware. I'm getting so used to it that it is becoming second nature now. Netgear support is horrible and want to sell you an extended warranty for a problem they know exists on this product. And the price of that extended warranty is almost as much as a new router (now why would I do that?) Very disappointed in this router for I bought this because of the pros mentioned above and paid good money for this when it was top of the line approx 1 year ago but it is not worth the hassle because of these firmware problems that they know exists with this model. I will probably go back to Linksey or Cisco for I have had no problems with those brands, maybe even try Motorola out for I see some of their models get good reviews. Never again with Netgear unless their customer service improves, not so much the attitudes for I had no problem with the person I talked to just the issues with the company not backing their product without charging me (because it is a known recurring problem).
