I bought a refurb WNDR3400, not a new one. The $35 price can't be beaten. This is the second wireless router I've owned. I just bought a Netgear WRN2000 brand new in July, and then this N600 dual band router came up, so I upgraded. I expected stronger signal strength from the N600 WNDR3400, but I'm not really seeing any improvement in range and/or signal strength compared to my basic N300 router. They both perform the same; no change in signal strength or dropouts has been evident, so far. In that respect, I'm a little disappointed in the N600. That's why I rated it 4/5 for performance.
The N600 does offer more features, though. Not as many routers and wireless devices are on the 5GHz band, and having dual-band will be useful to me if I move to a more urban area.
The big blue light on mine apparently can't be turned off. But a friend has one, and he can turn off that light by tapping it. I've tried numerous times on mine, but no dice, haha. I guess I just have to turn it off if anyone wants to sleep in that bedroom.
Overall, I think it's a solid router, and an extremely good deal for $35. It offers more features and more customizations than the more basic routers do. It's still pretty good at $54 refurbished, but if you search around the Internet you may be able to get it for closer to $35 - $40 at Tiger Direct or other stores that offer refurbished items.
eta 9/12/12: After changing the wifi adapter to a pci-e D-Link DWA-566 and connecting on the 5GHz band, and depending on what server I pick, I have seen (speedtest.net) pings as low as 18, downloads 28.5-29, and uploads are pretty much stuck at .9-.96 regardless of what adapter or router I use. Those are nearly the same results that I get with the ethernet connection, and are limited by the slower but more budget-friendly Internet service option that I picked.
First of all I bought the WNDR3400 router used on an Ebay auction for $25 and at first had issues installing it. Once I reset it to factory specs and used the pre-loaded Netgear SSID and network key it has worked well. I tried using my own SSID and Password but it was no go. I gave up and used the Netgear pre-loaded ones. I bought the product to replace a Netgear wireless 54G router (that worked well by the way) in order to upgrade my home network to "N" speed. I wanted the dual band as I thought it would be the best for streaming movies and such through my blu-ray player. I am not quite sure that the dual band was necessary as I don't live in a crowded area. I only use the 5 Ghz band with my blu-ray player and have noticed the connection invariably drops while watching a program or movie. I don't know if it's the router or my blu-ray player as resetting the player brings back the connection. I use the 2.4 Ghz band for my computers and my WII and connections have been rock solid. The speed on the 2.4 Ghz band is faster than a direct wired connection but not appreciably so. Being that this router was used there were no instructions with it so I had to go to the Netgear website to download everything I needed. I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable when it comes to setting up these kind of things but even so I thought it an accomplishment that it works.
Great router and got it really fast thanks!! I recommend the router for anyone who does a lot of streaming or plays online video games. Great addition to your home network.
I BOUGHT THIS ROUTER BECAUSE OF THE DUAL BANDs it provides as i live in an apt. complex and their is like 22 other wireless customers so their is quite a bit of interference going on!!...i have the "ultimate" package from time warner which is rated at 50 mbps download well their crappy arris wireless modem only provided about 25-35mbps speed as im disabled and 99% of the time am on my laptop in my bedroom and my modem is in living room...well i hooked this n600 router up a couple weeks ago and to my amazement im getting constant 48-53 mbps download speed on both frequency's!!!...and i have a cellphone and printer connected to it i love this router csant go wrong for the refurbished pricce grab 1 or 2 while their still cheap!!!!!!!!
One of the biggest reasons I like this router is the repeater option. I have 5 of these all linked together. We use this for a live auction network and it works pretty well. One problem was that we needed to have signal inside and outside the building and it is sheeted in tin. Our signal just wouldn't penetrate the metal. My solution was to put the main router outside and then run ethernet cable to the ones on the inside. This gave me good signal all around. Over all it is easy to set up and very reliable.
