The Netgear WNDR3700 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router supports true dual band, offers decent wireless performance, and has a useful set of networking features, including novelties such as a guest zone, network storage, and a traffic meter. Also, it's easy on the eyes and comes with an intuitive Web interface.
The Netgear WNDR3700 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router's network storage performance is very slow and its 5Ghz performance is disappointing as well. Its Traffic Meter feature isn't as robust as we'd like.
The Netgear WNDR3700 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router is a great dual-band router for networking enthusiasts who also want a quick and easy network storage solution.

I have the say that this router doesn't really disappoint. Great throughput, great wireless range, great configuration features, and apparent reliability (one month now). This router replaced an Airport Extreme Gigabit - a solid, reliable router. But the configuration of the Airport was Extreme-ly frustrating and confusing. I've also tried the wrt610n (version 1 & 2)and they just don't match the features and wireless range of the WNDR3700.
No router is perfect and the hype may do a dis-service to the overall value of this router. I haven't tried the USB (which was basically non-functional on the Airport Extreme if you weren't running a Mac) and I also haven't tried out the Guest Network functions but what I have used, MAC filtering, dual band networks and static routing w/RIP all work as expected.
Well worth the price, which by the way, is less than the WRT610n.
Regardless of price, this router is at the top of the list. With features more expensive routers lack. It has one the fastest processors-680mhz, more RAM and flash. Two MIMO radios, true simultaneous dual-band. 6 internal antennae. It can use open source firmware that really unlock it's potential. Custom firmware turns this into something that would cost you $$Hundreds. You'd have to spend three to fours times more to get a better component and it still might not operate as well. I know because I build antenna arrays and buy and sell wireless equipment.
I've owned about 10 Wireless routers over the years, mostly Linksys models but a couple of Netgears. The linksys models always eventually die - both the Netgear devices I have still work and have generally better range than comparable Linksys models. My newest netgear was G only so it was time to upgrade. I selected this router specifically because of it's high-end specs AND the fact that it's supported by the DD-WRT project(google it). I've had the WNDR3700 for a few weeks and am highly impressed. You can look up the specs elsewhere so I won't bother going over them. The USB storage and ability to access it from inside or OUTSIDE your LAN are nice. The gigabit ports and extensive array of indicator LED's are also a plus. The one negative I have for this model seems to be a common missing feature on all the Netgear routers I've had. The port-forwarding feature only allows you to forward to the same internal port that you come in to from the outside. In other words, you can't tell it to forward stuff coming in from the internet on one port to an internal IP via another port. This can usually be fixed by configuration at the client PC, but with Linksys equipment the option is available. That alone would have stopped me from buying this router - luckily, installing DD-WRT on this router adds that feature along with TONS more...including the ability to share printers via the USB connection instead of just external storage.
The NetGear WNDR3700 Wireless Router is great for setting up. The reason behind this purchase is I wanted to use the 1Gb speed in / out. Most routers do not have this feature and the speed is limited to 10/100. If you are going to use the NAS feature, purchase the fastest read / write access drive speed available.
This router really performs optimally at speeds up to 450-bpms. Enables implementation of 'Guest' Network for either and both frequency spectrums (5Ghz and 2.4Ghz.)
Security is not an issue with its default firewall setup. Connectivity range is high and wide.
Encryption levels are varied and comprehensive, achieving full compliance with today's standards for wireless Networks A, b, G & n.
