Netgear N900

27 February 2014
  • Summary: I have been using this router for quite some time now and it has performed flawlesly. I purchased it went I went to FTC broadband rather than use the inferior one supplied by my provider.

Repeatedly crashes - blinking green power light and firmware reset required

someblokeinsurrey "c0lin", Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: I have a house full of Netgear products that have been 100% reliable. I bought this router in Dec 2013 and six months later I had my first crash and the slow flashing power light of doom. Netgear online support explains how to do a firmware reset. Two or three of those in the warranty period, but now I've just experienced another, I've got fed up with this product. It must have been made on Friday afternoon.

Good, but rather large.

Dr. P. M. Wilson, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: This router replaced a BT Home Hub which had started to give trouble. I have had Netgear routers before which was the reason for my choice. It was easy to set up and works well. My only criticism would be that compared to the Home Hub it is quite large and needs to be placed discreetly within a living area to avoid being obtrusive.

Simple to set up and - at last - a reliable wireless router

Ian Kidd, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: After years of dealing with network conflicts and access being dropped, I now have a wireless internet connection that stays up constantly except from when the plug gets knocked out (don't ask - but not the routers fault). Worth the extra dough. Very easy to set up and connect to the broadband.

A vast improvement - well recommended!

Paul Cooper and Deborah Cooper, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: After suffering from increasingly poor wireless performance from my BT Homehub 3 for some time I did my research and decided to buy this router to connect to my BT Infinity service, rather than potentially waste hours doing pointless things at the request of someone in a BT call centre in a far away land. If you are reading this review searching for a new router, don't buy this for standard (ADSL) broadband as it does not have an internal modem and will not work.

used for gaming

Amar Bahea, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: this is an amazing router, it just keeps preforming. this is used to connect over 10 devices in our house at any one time, but doesnt affect the internet speed for each one. the 5ghz band is now widely supported on most wifi capable devices and it provides a more stable and reilable connection to the network.

EU Version DO NOT BUY FOR UK

Max, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: So I bought a new router for my house only to find that this is the EU version, meaning you have to buy an EU to UK adapter to make it work. DO NOT BUY IF YOU LIVE IN THE UK, YOU ARE GETTING THE WRONG PRODUCT.

What it says on the tin

The Prof, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I have used many wireless modem routers and had found all of them to be less than satisfactory. A friend told me that I should buy Netgear - I did and now those other routers are just a bad memory. My N900 has never let me down and has lasted longer than any of its predecessors - including arm and leg expensive Apple routers (two of which bit the dust). The N900 lives up to its claims and, indeed, does 'exactly what it says on the tin'.

In vehement support of JJ Carter's review

Regent, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: Please see my comment supporting the JJ Carter's review. I bought this product to replace a slower and older netgear WND3300 on the basis that I thought Netgear would be easy to set up and reliable based on my experience of the WNDR3300. I was wrong. It was a nightmare to set up - wasting a whole evening after work trying to tinker with it to get it to recognize my internet, finally using my previous router's MAC address to get the internet to register.

Troublesome & poor customer service

J. J. Carter, Amazon
29 November 2013
  • Summary: Bought this as a replacement for a BT Homehub 4 as I was hoping for greater range. This seemed to be the case at first but I was plagued by continual IP conflicts and frequent drop-outs. I eventually set up discreet IP addresses for each of the devices attempting to connect. (This should not be necessary with DHCP) Address conflicts were resolved but not the frequent drop-outs.
