Summary: Let me first put in to context the type of purchaser I am, I never ever write a comment about anything I buy good or bad. However this product has just frustrated and annoyed me so much that I feel everyone must be warned. I have been a purchaser of Netgear products for well over 10 years I bought this item with confidence as I needed more powerful Wi-Fi around the house and as I have a lot of tech the dual band suited me as I could move some of my tech away from the...
Disappointment, but not in the product as I never got it

Summary: After waiting a week for this product, and tracking the progress and watching the package go from the bottom of the uk, to the top of the uk, back to the bottom, to my home island (Jersey) Amazon then cancelled my order....
Summary: Bought to suppliment the naff Virgin super hub, use it to stream around the house, we run upto 3 laptops to pads and three Iphones at any one time when we look after students, goeas without a hitch. Signal strength in the 5Ghz band in the garden is good, through two brick walls and over 20 meters. Would recommend this product to anyone who is having wifi trouble with the Virgin superb hub. Price was good to, would use supplier again.
Summary: I bought this item because I got the impression from the wording on the sales page that it included a modem which is what I required. When it arrived I unpacked it and to my horror found that it DIDN'T include a modem. I have now had to buy a modem because the reviews for the N900 were very good and I thought it better to keep it. Somebody at Amazon should make their copy writing clearer for the customer who probably is not an IT person.
Summary: but as we all know VPN is a separate entity :) Brilliant quality - easy to set up - I have it working with my BT infinity - BT told me their products are - And i Quote - "the best option for the services they provide" - never heard so much trash - £60 for pretty pathetic piece of equipment (bt hub) or pay double for something that is quite literally 10x better. - Im in the kitchen (router is upstairs) I have 30mbp/s downloads wirelessly AND with 40% signal strength.
Summary: Just a short one, because this says it all, stopped working 1.5 years after purchase. What happened: worked fine, after power off router would not start up properly. Hard-reset: Did not work (manual says 5-10 secs will start the reset). No reaction at all from the box. Hard reset not possible. The reason I am really angry: Support (tel and chat) are only available in the first 90 days after purchase (and only if registered).
