2 out of 5 eggsTerrible Range

Pros: I used it for a few weeks with the out-of-the box firmware. The range was really struggling so I installed DD-WRT. I was able to install DD-WRT without any issues.

Works fine with a Roku that is directly line-of-sight with the router.

Cons: The range on this router is terrible. I live in a 2,400 sq ft two story house. My Samsung S5 can't even detect the router if I go upstairs (even the room directly over the router). If I walk out of the room where the router is installed the signal strength halves. It can't seem to broadcast through a wall. I live on a cul-de-sac and I have better reception from my every neighbor's router. This thing is probably great for a one bedroom apartment but If you own a decent sized house you will need to keep looking.

Other Thoughts: I blame myself. I didn't take the time to read the reviews and do the research. After I bought it I found people complaining about the range.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey RogueFalcon,

We are very sorry that you are having trouble with the range, and we want to offer you advanced assistance if you would like. You can email us at newegg@netgear.com at any time. Be sure to leave a detailed description like that in your review.

If you need anything else please remember that we are always here for you.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

3 out of 5 eggsSolid, but be weary

Pros: This router allows you to have two separate passwords for your wireless network so you can somewhat separate guests from private users. To take full advantage of this, you will have to use an Open Source firmware like DD-WRT. Range was pretty good in our building, which is a cinderblock, metal studs, and concrete second deck.

Open Source really unlocks the functionality of this router. With Open Source your can truly separate your networks into different subnets, so the guests cannot ‘talk’ to private users and resources. You also have more granular QoS settings, to limit what guest wireless users can access.

Cons: Return policy and versions
Part of the “be weary” is I ordered two at one time and received a WNDR3700v3 (Broadcom based) and WNDR3700v4 (Atheros based). This made it very difficult to use Open Source firmware to take full advantage of the features for which I bought these routers. I ended up having to continue with the OEM firmware.

Also consider this before you buy. If your router fails between the 90 day warranty and the 1 year parts/labor, and you didn't purchase the extended warranty, you will be forced to buy an extended warranty before they will give you an RMA #. If they are able to resolve your issue, you get the full benefits of that tech support, even on connected devices. If it doesn't resolve your issue, and the router will need to be returned, they will tell you that there will be no billing to provide an RMA #. That was not the case for me. I received an RMA # to return mine, and the very next business day there was a $39.99US pending charge to my check card. Not good business practice. Now I have to dispute this charge with my bank.

Separate networks isn’t really separate. With the OEM firmware, you cannot create separate subnets with the guest and private networks. This means that a wireless guest user potentially has access to any shared files on your private network. It can also cause IP Address conflicts with some mobile devices. We regularly had HTC mobile devices that would use an IP address outside the assigned range that would conflict with statically assigned IP addresses.

1 out of 5 eggsWNDR3700

Pros: None

Cons: Worse experience ever with a router. Even after soft and hard resets I was not able to get into the interface to be able to make any changes. Not even to flash the original firmware to see if that would solve my issues.

A big five eggs for Newegg though for taking care of their customers. Thanks!

Other Thoughts: Not sure what happened but I had purchased two of these and both of them had the same problem. I didn't want to buy the same ones again and experience the problem all over again.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey None,

We are very sorry for your experience this far with the WNDR3700 and want to get it working for you right away. Please email us at newegg@netgear.com with a copy and paste of your review-- from there we can help diagnose the issue and fix it.

If you have any questions please let us know.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Product Support

Pros: Worked at first. Easy setup.

Cons: Router failed after 10 months. Stuck with WPS 'mode'. All troubleshooting suggestions from Netgear were the same you can find online, and do not work. Once I passed their 'script' they wanted to replace with the same router. Not acceptable. No trust in this product.

Manufacturer Response:

The standard NETGEAR warranty is as follows:

1 year hardware warranty
90 days phone support
Email support is valid for warranty support period

Please get in contact with us by email right away so that we can get it working or send you the replacement if needed.

We understand and apologize for your frustrations and want nothing more than to earn your business again.

Regards,

NETGEAR team

1 out of 5 eggsWorked great before it died

Pros: It worked fantastically before it died! We have a 50Mb connection with 6+ college kids using it, so I'd say we have a fairly demanding load. We quite frequently (almost constantly) have 3 people streaming Netflix at the same time while others are gaming. It held up fine. I also really like the interface for it. I like'd this thing so much that I recommended it to my parent's when their old Netgear router died after close to 10 years of usage.

Cons: - Started to fail 1.5 years in.
- Completely failed after 2 years.

Other Thoughts: The router started to fail after about a year. If I turned it off to move it, it wouldn't necessarily turn on right away. I'd have to turn it off and on multiple times (sometimes darn near 20) before the thing would actually boot. It eventually completely died about 6 months later, which is 2 years after purchase. If only the warranty was longer than 1 year. I'm now looking for something other than Netgear for our next router.

Manufacturer Response:

We are very sorry to hear this and would like to see if there is something we can do. You can ask the our community of experts for advice on our forums.

We hope to figure out a solution and look forward to hearing from you.

5 out of 5 eggsNetgear wndr3700 ver.4

Pros: 5g wireless,dual band, sits upright and stays cool. It also has 128 mb of flash mem and 128 mb of ram. The lights don't blink. Ease of setup.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from an older router that was good for 7 years but started slowing down once we got a wireless Roku and a basic talk phone. We also run 2 computers. I never had to learn about routers before but we stream a lot now. The old router had 4mb flash and 16 ram. The difference is clear. I never even knew routers had memory. My cable company said I needed to upgrade my speed tier. Ha.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty sweet and long range

Pros: I have noticed nothing bad about this unit. They rate it as a 'better' of their wireless products... best and ultimate are their higher rated ones. This one cruises and no one is dropping connections any more and it's in the basement with 2 floors above.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat hardware, terrible stock firmware

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.

2 out of 5 eggs2.4GHz Radio Died

Pros: The USB attached storage is a nice feature to have. However, read/write performance is pretty slow, especially with NTFS.

Cons: The 2.4GHz radio basically died. Signal strength is below -80 dBm at a range of 3 ft. Doing a little research, I confirmend that this is a very common problem with this router. I got about 3 years of service out of mine, so I guess I'm luckier than most. Still, this is totally unacceptable, especially for the kind of money that this thing originally cost. I feel ripped off!

Other Thoughts: Radio death supposedly isn't a problem on the newer revisions (V3 uses a Broadcom chipset instead of Atheros), but I wouldn't dare risk it. No more Neatgear products for me.

Manufacturer Response:

We are very sorry to hear that the 2.4GHz radio has died. Please visit our forums to open your own topic-- hopefully you can find help there.
