Pros Great router when it worked.
Cons Replaced three times before I gave up. Just bought a Netgear 3500L and it is bad out of the box as well.
Summary Netgear used to be a good product and the service was good as well but I called on the old and new router and they really could not help resolve the issues or advise me on a router of theres that does not have issues.

Pros works well when it works
Cons died after about a year (power light only ).I should listen to the other costmer's word, but I believe the pro's review, and think that I might not be that bad luck, I was wrong.
Summary Dont buy this router.
"Half-baked"on by lexluthor001
Pros When it works, it works well
Cons Failure rate on the device is very high. I had the unfortunate luck of purchasing two of these and both of them failed with the green circle of death. Even the RMA'd router they sent me back died the same way a few months later
Summary ** Avoid at all costs **
The RMA that failed was out of warranty and having no recourse I had to buy something else. Now the remaining router has an issue with the transformer - it makes strange hissing noises and I fear any day it may trigger an electrical fire. Of course its impossible to get anyone on the telephone at netgear that isnt from india.
Pros Fast when it works
Cons Frequent disconnects. Customer service.
Summary Customer service gave me the runaround... Blaming it on my 5.8 ghz phones and the Internet provider. I wish I would have done a little research before I bought this router. If you buy this product after reading all the horrible reviews you are a fool.
"Complete waste"on by atomheart411
Pros Hey,it worked (for a while)
Cons Every experience with Netgear technonsensical support.. It's not even heavy enough to use as a door stop after it dies (and it will).
Summary What can I say.Another case of green ring of death. And they wanted me to pay them so that they could tell me that I wasted my money. Maybe that's their real business plan. If I really hated you I would recomend this product to you.
