I had an old Westell modem that just was showing its age. This new router/modem not only boosted signal strength but I was able to connect (2) bridges to my devices that worked with ethernet connections only. I never liked the router only setups (always seemed to have communication issues). This router/modem does the job great and it works with all major ISPs.
This DOES NOT work with att u-verse it only works with regular att dsl. att dsl and att u-verse dsl is two different things and u-verse requires a special set up available only from att.
THIS PRODUCT IS NOT COMPATABLE WITH CENTURY LINK. CHECK WITH YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER FOR COMPATABILTY OF MODEM PORTION BEFORE PURCHASE
I purchased this product to replace my 2wire AT&T DSL Router/Modem. My AT&T Router/Modem had been replaced every 2 years since I had it (I was on my 2nd one and did not want to get another one from AT&T). The Netgear product works perfectly! I recommend buying it if you are looking for something similar. The setup was pretty easy and I did need a little assistance from the Netgear technical support; however, they were very helpful. If you are using this product in place of one provided by your Internet provider, you must call them in order to get the password and username to set up the router. As an FYI, this is not the same as your username and password to access your wireless Internet.
Excellent product while I had it. I returned this NG N300 router 2 days later due to the service from CenturyLink was VDSL, and this being ADSL.
I had to call Netgear to complete my complicated setup allowing the use of Windows7 Remote Desktop so that my laptop can access my desktop when I am away from home, but Ankit at Netgear helped me to determine the proper settings and my modem/router combination is working perfectly for a very reasonable price. I like using the combo modem/router, because my ISP has always required that I disconnect the router and change out my adapter settings to troubleshoot any problems. That will no longer be an issue with the combo unit.
I think that it might work with other companies but it will not work with the ISP CenturyLink. If you have CenturyLink I would recommend calling them and buying THEIR modem/router because it will be their equipment and they will be able to work with you. After two+ hours on the phone with them they tell me this router wont work with their equipment.
I bought this to replace an Actiontec router so I could also use a repeater (not supported by the Actiontec). This router is easy to set up and has been completely trouble-free. I had hoped that it would have more range than the Actiontec, alleviating the need for the repeater, but signal strength was really no better. For almost $100 (now $110), I expected to be able to reach the other end of the house (maybe 60-70 feet), but signal strength there was consistently low, and sometimes dropped out completely. It does work with the repeater and it seems faster than the Actiontec, especially when transferring between computers on the home network.
We have CenutryLink DSL. Setup was minutes. Works great.
Works great with Consolidated Communications DSL. No problems so far. Faster Speed.
My Westell 327W began to intermittenly go OOS. This modem was an excellent replacement. Easy to set up.
Very good product, easy to install, fair price and get connect rigthaway.
I ordered online in the Walmart store with help from a clerk, and I had been told by Mediacom to get a router and modem if I wanted to save 9$ a month on my 2 year contract....for 96$ it was >100$$ in savings over the life of the contract. So I ordered this. Well, the tech got here and we needed cable, not DSL. I had it out of the box and all set up (which was really easy, by the way, as were the directions). If that helps any. So it's back to the store I go...they don't have any of the cable router/modem combos in stock, so I'll have to order again. Shipping was really fast for just 3$ more, so I paid for that. It was worth it. It would have met expectations for anyone needing DSL. The tech who knows all about these things said it was a good one...so there ya go. :) Keep in mind what you really need it for when you're ordering/shopping. Ask good questions from you cable or wireless company.
As an IT support person I thought I could do a manual installation to ATT. I entered all the correct data - PPPoE, username, password. I got a solid DSL connection but never an Internet connection. We had an inside wire trouble call so an ATT wire tech came, could not get the modem working and gave us a Motorola modem. After that I took it as challange to get it working. Voila - by moving the moving the ethernet cable from port 4 to port 1 on the modem the Internet started working. I scanned the brief setup instructions and could find anything that mentioned this. I assumed port 1 was reserved for a WAN connection since that is what it was labeled. The next call woould have been to netgear and I think my problem would have been resolved quickly. Since I got a free modem from the tech I returned the netgear but I will still recommend it.
does not work with chrome scan
I have always used Cisco products but since the antenna has disappeared from their new routers, there have been problems getting a good signal. This model does the job. Wireless N is good but if you still have wireless G devices in the house, you should upgrade to the next model because it has dual band capability. This router has a 2.4 ghz signal. You will get lower bandwidth when using Tivo Premier for streaming TV. I run a Windows Server in the house and I use a Netgear Wireless N adapter for that computer. It seems to get a great signal. Remote desktop communication hasn't been a problem. The media sharing works well with the PS3 and smartphones. You can set it up to access it as on a browser if you know your IP address settings. A great replacement from the model I received from Century Link.
Save money and aggravation and get yourself the Netgear N450 instead. The N450 does not have built in DSL but the range and stability are far superior to this POJ. This thing is only good if you live in a very VERY small home or Apartment. HORRIBLE RANGE AND SUB-PAR CONNECTION STABILITY!
I have not had any problems with this router/modem. It is nice having everything in one item instead of two different things.
This router modem is easy to setup for the first time and a snap to use. I have had mine forabout a month now and so far have had no problems with it.Stays on 24/7 with no kickoff or reloging in. WIFI range is very good and fast.
I bought this when I switched to a hard-wired internet line in my home. It was compatible with my internet provider and had great reviews. After two weeks and many phone calls to customer service, I was able to finally use my internet. I have recently moved and when I went to plug in and fire everything up at the new house, it wouldn't work. I called NetGear's customer service and they told me the box would need to be reprogrammed and they would be happy to do it for $99.99. Uhm, that's $10.00 more than what it would cost me to get a new one. No more NetGear for me!!
