What's great about it: Easy to set up, great performance, good price
What's not so great: N/A
I purchased this NETGEAR router for my apartment studio, and it was very easy to install. I connected it directly to the ethernet cable with internet connection and used the resource CD included, following the instructions on the booklet. I have used the Wi-Fi for 2 laptops and one smart phone and had no problems so far. Excellent performance for a reasonable price. I would recommend it over another brand.

I am not one to EVER write a review, but seeing as how I read most of the reviews on this model before my purchase...my 2 cents might help someone else out. This router was purchased to replace my D-Link which died on me...and what an improvement it was! Super easy and quick installation (not sure what happened with others who purchased this unit). The network was setup and I was able to connect 2 laptops (one of which has Windows 7) in under 5 minutes. I've only been up and running for about a week, but so far there have been no issues at all. Before writing this review I connected my Blu-Ray player to the network so I can stream Netflix, I think the signal strength is much better. Also the WPS feature on it is GREAT!!! Saves you a lot of time from typing in uber long network passwords on your xbox 360 controller or Blu-Ray remote.
The only thing negative I have to say is that I wish this was my first router. Hope this helps someone as it is my first ever review.
I purchased the same product 9-30-2014. Coincidently, last week (almost 11 months later) I no longer had wireless connection-I only use my IPAD. Funny how NETGEAR programs them to die. So I called NETGEAR for help-they wanted to sell me a one, two or three year plan to continue to talk technically with them-they would not charge me to "bypass" the problem and get the router back in working order, however, they wanted big bucks for future calls. BS! Unfortunately I bought another router, same one as last year, for $40-$100 cheaper than the "extended" plan they wanted to sell me. The product is great - NETGEAR themselves SUCK as far as customer service.
I only have less than 10 devices connected at the same time (phones, tablets, computers, thermostat, tv's, dvd player) and it handles the load quite nicely. I think what I had before for my network was an overkill (N600).
The only thing I didn't like is that my ISP company couldn't get the router's mac address to work, so I had to clone my computer's mac. I called Netgear support and they blame the ISP and, of course, the ISP blames Netgear... Anyway is working fine with a cloned mac address... So other than that, no complaints.

I had purchase a ac2000 router limksys which was amazing, definitely a lot of feature than I didn't even needed... the only issue I had was the price I paid for it, over 100 bux. I though myself why would I buy a 100+ router when I can get at the same price a router that fit all my needs, that's when i came across netgear N, I saw the reviews and I decided to give it a try and to be honest it hasnt disappointed, amazing router for the price. I have 6 device connected including my ps3, 2 galaxy phones, 2 tables, my smart tv, printer, laptop with no problem... I do really recommend this product...
P.S my bright house Internet download speed is 15 mps, I get 17 with the router..
Try existing in an office without WiFi. I couldn't get the boss to buy one so I bought this one which was reasonable and it works well. I would recommend this as a basic get in the door Router. It sure works for me.
