5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 4 Sep 2010
This review is from: Netgear DGND3300 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N DSL Gateway (Electronics)
To answer a few problems listed below.

You can't connect 2.4ghz N receivers if you leave the router set ot 5ghz for N!

If you only have 2.4 Ghz N receivers you do NOT need to buy this router anyway.

However if you have you can knock the N side of it down to 2.4ghz as well.

Suggest naming your 2 SSID as G and N so you know which one you're looking at and use WPA/2 PSK Mixed security.

The blue flashing light can be turned off by pressing the button for 2 seconds. It is annoying in dim light.

The firware updates itself if you so choose - no need to do anything just check the box that says check for firmware at log in.

The USB Share works brilliantly - even from remote PC's over the internet.

Wirless printing is a doddle provided you set your printer up properly.

Has a handy bandwidth monitor so you can get a warning when you get close to your download limits.

If you're at the end of a long noisy line far from the exchange then you may wish to use a DG834 as these are well proven to be stable on a bad line. I think this one may be more sensitive. It dropped for me a few times on the first 2 days but has now re-trained and been stable with no drops.

People you need to be patient and allow the exchange and router get used to each other 3-10 days.

A few people also need to R.T.M.

Only downside which applies to all Netgear routers is the Telnet ports are locked unless you set debug mode via the browser.

This Router is blisteringly fast on 5Ghz giving me 245Mbps across the house and bwtween floors.

5 out 5

should read "If you only have 2.4 Ghz "G" receivers you do NOT need to buy this router anyway." The higher capacity 802.11N spec will be redundant.

There are also 2 level of N and there are cheaper '2.4 only' routers, or were at time of writing. It perhaps should have read 2.4Ghz N or G :o)

Readyshare does not work with Win7 64 :o( Found out since upgrade.

I have no problem getting it to work. You have to use the normal Netgear login the first time you connect. The Win7 Network window can be a bit confusing though.

ReadyShare USB Storage Access?

It does. It's OS independent. Check your settings.

Devices with 5GHz "N" tend to be higher grade mobile phones, and even then they tend to to default to 2.4GHz as 5GHz transmissions are pretty rare.
Most laptops are are still only 2.4GHz.
