Easy set up - no problems so far,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR4500-100EUS N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router (Accessory)
It was pretty to set up (note: I am a techie) and seems to be pretty reliable so far. I can't say how fast it is compared to the previous router as I upgrade router and broadband connection at the same time. *Note* This router works with fibre (FTTC) or cable broadband (*not* ASDL). It requires a separate modem box, which should be provided by your ISP.

Thank you for being specific about saying that this works with FTTC. I'm going to try this one, I think, as our FTTC connection is supposed to be put in next week and I was wondering what the spec was for connection to the modem the ISP will be putting in.

Why will it only work with fibre / cable broadband, not ADSL ?

It doesn't have a built in modem. That comes as a separate box, usually provided by your cable/FTTC vendor.

Yes, but can you use the N900 with a wired ADSL 2+ modem router like the DG632 / DG834 (which does have a built-in modem) ?

Why say "This router works with fibre (FTTC) or cable broadband (*not* ASDL)." in your original comment if there is no information on whether they can be used with ADSL modem routers like the DG632 / DG834?
I am also a techie too and I think it shouldn't matter whether the modem router the N900 is connected to is a fibre / adsl / cable modem router so long as the modem router has a connection (phone / cable / fibre optic) to the Internet.
