Pros: Works great in our two-story 3-bedroom house. We have the router on one side of the house (where the modem is) and an office on the other side. The two laptops get great wifi reception anywhere in the house. This router stands up well when we have 10-15 wifi-enabled devices connected to it at once.
Cons: The stock firmware was TERRIBLE. We spent about a year dealing with signal issues whenever we had our baby monitor turned on (Samsung SEW-3037W). Even while the baby monitor was off. Very commonly, the router would lock up and you couldn't even bring up the web console and we had to manually restart it.
Eight days ago I installed dd-wrt and magically all of those issues disappeared. I can now set the baby monitor right next to my computer and it has not impact on my wifi. I also have not had to restart the router in eight days, which was previously unheard of.
Other Thoughts: Great hardware, but Netgear (and pretty much all other residential router manufacturers) really needs to throw in the towel on the firmware business and just ship all of their routers with dd-wrt stock.READ FULL REVIEW
