Netgear WNDR3700 review

 

The Netgear WNDR3700 offers none of the hand-holding that the Cisco Linksys E4200 provides. You must browse to 192.168.0.1 to access Netgear's HTML setup pages to configure the unit. That's fine by me; I don't believe in steering users away from...

However, the Netgear WNDR3700 is an excellent product once configured, and I found there's no better performing small or home office-class (SOHO) Wi-Fi router available. Still, the interface and setup experience need some work.

Netgear WNDR3700 review

 

An excellent range of features, but this router performed inconsistently in our wireless transfer tests, with poor 5GHz speeds.

The WNDR3700 has some brilliant features but its high price and inconsistent transfer speeds make it hard to recommend. If you need a simultaneous dual-band router with USB NAS capabilities, we recommend Linksys's similarly priced WRT610N.

Netgear WNDR3700 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (Premium Edition) review

 

The new Netgear WNDR3700 RangeMax is a great upgrade from the Netgear WNDR3300 . It now supports true dual bands, offering simultaneous Wireless-N performance in both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands. The router also offers a decent network storage feature when...

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.

Netgear Rangemax WNDR3700

 

It wasn't much of a contest: Netgear's WNDR3700 V1 retained its crown as our Best of the Best router with spectacular TCP through-put, a strong feature set, and an even stronger price/performance ratio. It's the second-most expensive router we tested,...

Awesome price/performance ratio; DLNA-compliant media server; dual guest networks; traffic meter

No USB printer sharing; traffic meter can't limit on a per-client basis

We suspect the primary reason the WNDR3700’s press-time street price was so low is because Netgear was clearing inventory to make way for the WNDR3700 V2. Netgear is promising to double the router’s memory, deliver a 50 percent performance boost on the...

Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (WNDR3700)

 

A fast, easy to use, dual-band wireless router for homes and small offices

Dual-band operation works very well, fast 5GHz operation, USB port for sharing storage devices, content on USB drives is accessible over the Internet

Couldn't use USB devices to serve media to our PlayStation 3, Web interface needs a redesign -- enough with the frames already

The Netgear WNDR3700 is fast, reasonably easy to set up, and stocked with some interesting features. We love the ability to run 5GHz and 2.4GHz networks simultaneously, and the built-in USB function is useful for sharing content locally and across the...

Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router (WNDR3700)

 

One of the fastest wireless router we've tested to date, Netgear's N600 is fit for technically inclined consumers or small business. This excellent router's feature set is suited to both power home users and the most technical IT person

Amazing throughput. Improved setup with Genie app. Loaded with features

Setup process a bit slow. Setup still requires some tech savvy. Slow file copying via USB connection

Netgear WNDR3700 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router Premium Edition

 

On the downside, its network storage performance is slow compared with other routers with the same feature, such as the Linksys WRT610N , or the Apple Time Capsule . Its 5Ghz band's range is shorter than what we expected.

Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router (WNDR3700)

 

Netgear's four-port gigabit, simultaneous dual-band WNDR3700 Wi-Fi router proved a joy to use. It was stable and glitch-free, with easy media serving. However, bliss only commenced after setup and configuration.

Simultaneous dual-band, Media serving

Setup and configuration rough around the edges

However, the WNDR3700 is an excellent product once configured, and I found there’s no better performing small or home office-class (SOHO) Wi-Fi router available. Still, the interface and setup experience need some work.
