Good performance and range when it worked. I had to turn it off and back on again to reset it every other week. The problem was not in the wiring or service (checked by AT&T twice). The old 2Wire modem that came with our DSL service would work with no problems (and still does, it's just slower with shorter range). After only six months the NETGEAR 300N has stopped working altogether. I'm still waiting to see what, if anything, NETGEAR will do about it.
This is my first wireless router. The installation was super easy. I just read the instructions and followed them and I was up and running. I am not a computer expert.
Speeds things along.
this dsl modem wireless router works fine. problem is to set up it is very difficult because of poor instructions. before starting/buying download and print the instruction documents. if you use the call number for help this is overseas and is very difficult to communicate.
also the tech support IS free for 90days. after that your on your own. so you will need that documentation info. after 90 days they will charge you to troubleshoot your modem/router issues even though it has a 1 year warrantee. I purchased a 1 year over the 1 year Warrantee they supply . any problems I get a store credit. you will be required to return this to the manufacturer if you do not get an extended warrantee.
I bought this at our local wal-mart to replace another brand that was struck by lighting. I had planned to use this until I could buy a "better" modem router from a well known online electronics dealer but it works great! I have three desktops, one laptop, kindle, tv, PS3 and several mobile phones running off this and no problems yet.
It took some phone call to get it right, but it works very well now. I am not sure about the future. The software only has a 90 day warranty.
The unit failed to recognize my DSL as having a dynamic address. It repeatedly stated my DSL had a static IP address. After 2.5 hours on the phone with a netgear tech, he finally said I should just take it back which I was glad to do. I really wanted to tie my modem and router together but the Belkin Gigabit Wireless Router was a much better device. All I had to do was hook it up and turn it on - whamo, instant wireless that was secured. Comes with a card showing the password to connect all your wireless products. Go buy that one instead!
My old ATT modem was down. I got this Netgear Modem/Router after the store lost my order and gave me a good deal on this Netgear product. I couldn't get it to work so I called tech supprt. They said my ISP user ID and pw were wrong. After I verified, it turned out my ID and PW were fine. I ended up reconfiguring my old modem successfully. I tried the Netgear modem/router one more time with no luck. I'm returning this item.
