May be Iffy when connected with (a) certain cable modem(s).
So, my router works fine. I have no major complaints except for the fact that if power goes out for some time and my UPS dies (and so the router goes out), when it comes back up it doesn't connect my internet properly.
Keep in mind, this only happens with my Comcast provided Arris TM822 Cable + Phone Modem. It connects quickly and easily with my Motorola Cable Modem. So, -1 star for not being universally cable modem friendly. I have to jump through a few hoops to get it working again with the net by taking the Arris' battery out so it can fully power cycle and then power cycling the router. No bueno. Still, there's really rarely ever a case where this has happened and I can only count on 1 hand the number of times (i'm also sure it's less than 5).
I've had the router for a while and it's been the longest lasting router since my WRT54G, which is sad. Every other router I've owned (Cisco, Rosewill, Microsoft) has died on me within a year. So, there's that.
Will I buy another Netgear? Who knows. With a Lifetime warranty and this one serving me well, the temptation is there. Of course, if I do...I will certainly Evernote or Dropbox my receipt because, no warranty without that according to many an angry user.
Do I recommend it? It depends. Not if you use the TM822 I guess, because then you may dislike me for the recommendation. Any other cable modem and, sure! It's been good to me and it may be good to you too. Of course, by now you're probably looking for AC routers, but just in case - this isn't a terrible router at all.
