Netgear N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router review
17 April 2012
Conclusion: The N900 has excellent range when used with suitable client devices, and has decent real-world performance but - as with any of the new breed of 450Mbps routers - don't expect it to work miracles, in areas with heavy interference. The feature set, interface and apps are excellent, and although it lacks one or two features found in its siblings; it is an impressive, albeit rather ungainly, beast.
Excerpt: Netgear's N900 Dual Band Gigabit Router, otherwise known as the WNDR4500, is an "ultimate performance" product designed for those of you who want faster wireless networking. It has a dual-band wireless access point that can work in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrums and it can reach speeds of 450Mbps in either of them.
Summary: We are glad about NETGEAR WNDR4500 wireless router we tested. It showed sustainable data transfer speeds both in wired and wireless network segments. But there was one thing which we were really surprised at a lot, and it's the device performance with PPTP. We haven't ever seen such speeds for PPTP tunnelling without encryption on SOHO devices.
Pros: Support of two wireless frequency ranges, Presence of traffic meter, Ability to block unauthorized USB-devices, High data transmission speed via PPTP
Excerpt: Netgear has been a favorite manufacturer of computer networking devices for computer users and enthusiasts worldwide since they were formed back in 1996. Since then, they have become a trusted name in wireless technology and have been hanging their hat on their currently flagship router, the N900 WNDR4500 Dual-Band wireless router.
Summary: New N900 wireless provides up to 450+450 Mbps speed and supports simultaneous dual-band technology, which should improve wireless range and deliver better connections for larger homes and multiple devices. It features four Gigabit Ethernet ports and two USB ports for additional connectivity.
Netgear's N900 offers wireless networking speeds up to 450Mbps, as well as Gigabit Ethernet

Summary: Netgear's N900 is a fast unit when it comes to wireless networking, and is a decent solution for those of you who can't wait until 802.11ac routers. Both its short and long range results were impressive in our tests. You pay quite a price for that speed though.
Pros: Excellent close range speed, Good long range performance, Reliable throughout our test period
Cons: No ReadyShare Cloud feature, Data transfer from USB a little slow, Price
