Not only did the router arrive in record time (important when you desperately need one), it was a snap to install. We have two computers, 4 Kindles & a printer on our wireless network & the only thing I had trouble with was the printer and that turned out to be entirely my fault. We have always trusted Netgear & this certainly did not let us down.

This does everything you expect it to.... and more! I bought this to replace a BT Homehub, which was sadly lacking in performance and reliability. With the Netgear Range Max, I no longer have wireless dead spots in the house, wireless operates at high speed, and streaming audio/video is stutter free. Brilliant Purchase, worth every penny!

I went for this product before, being a previous Netgear user. Initial setup was straightforward, but that was it. The hardware enclosure feels cheap and tacky, and Wireless performance was questionable at best. 5Ghz performance is practically non -existant.

Turns out, the WNDR3700 is a faulty product with glitchy radio hardware. I have returned mine for a full refund. Highly recommend buying a different product!

Rubbish. Utter rubbish. Stay away. Pay £10 more and get something that actually works. What's wrong with it? Needs rebooting once a day. Constant connection errors. Range is about 3 meters. Trying to get a home entertainment system to work on this is like trying to push cooked spaghetti through the eye of a needle.

Style Name: N300 wireless with antennaVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
First thing to note is that this is a wireless router only - it has no modem capability so you'll need to link it to an existing modem (or buy one separately of course). However it does function as a useful wireless repeater so can be added to an existing network in that way as well. At the budget price it feels a little churlish but the 4 LAN ports are only 10/100 and not gigabit ports. In the end I opted for the new BT HomeHub which does now have gigabit ports as my main connectivity and used this to extend the wifi range instead.

Setup is simple and the web management interface quite intuitive. Some people have said that the firmware upgrade has bricked their device but fortunately not mine and it's always worth doing the upgrades as normally various security and/or performance bugs have been fixed.

If you're looking for a way to upgrade your existing wifi speed or range and have a limited budget this little box should be on your shortlist.

I ordered one of these setup was easy but when it comes to the firmware upgrade it failed and made the device useless. Got a replacement.

Second router came tried setting it up and it wouldn't allow you to change anything just went back to default. preformed the firmware upgrade and same issue. Netgear was on the device for about 2hrs resetting the device to the early version to preform it again. the device came back online tried changing SSID but defaulted back to default settings.

Sending it back and replaced with a Linksys access point which was a doodle to setup and configure. If you want to use this as a repeater or anything remotely useful don't bother with this model spend £20 more and get a LINKSYS access point

I saw the other poor reviews, and tbh this item is a bit, well, lame.

I thought that performance was no better on wireless (same spot, one at a time) on my i7 laptop on wireless. My old wireless AP is dedicated (its not a router) but uses old tech and seems no slower.

The case is a little cheap and cheerful looking, though I concede this is at the cheap end of the Netgear lineup.

The user interface is proper Net 1.0, I know TP-Link interfaces are very basic, but all the better for it. This tried too hard to be high tech but actually ended up looking all the cheaper for it.

Overall 5.5/10

Style Name: N300 wireless with antennaVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
At the price on the site (£19 at the time of writing this) this is a no brainer for cable users. For those with BT style DSL routers you may as well use the ones that come with the deal but if they are under performing or old then this could be a good choice.

It does all the things you would want it to do. Wireless distribution with decent range and a few ports on the back for things than need a cable.

It's party peice (apart from the price) is its ease to setup and use without ongoing reboots and being able to put a USB drive into it and use as a NAS.

Where it falls down (and Im being picky here considering the price - I actually feel a bit cruel) the ethernet ports are only 100Mbps, it would be nice from time to time to have gigabit connectivity for those painful back up jobs. Also the 5gHz is quite low range having two SSIDs could be confusing for people, perhaps just worth disabling the 5G. Also the software is rubbish, dont bother with any of it, just use the web GUI.

All in all though a great little product, I've always had netgear routers but ended up snapping antenna so every model I have had has always performed to a high standard. I recently got the Virgin speedhub thing for 50mbps from Virgin and to be honest the netgear is a million times better.

Cheap and cheerful is the name of the game here. This router (only a router, you will need a modem to plug into it) is a cracking little bit of it.

Signal is nice and strong, easy to set up, plus there are plenty of advanced options within the set-up utility to play around with. At present I have it set up as a repeater, allowing my wifi to permeate all parts of my apparently lead lined house. Does the job very well.

Good investment if you fancy upgrading your current router, but if you fancy yourself as a proper network admin then there are likely better devices to tinker with.
