      Buyer Beware

      Buyer beware: I have now received two "refurbished" units that didn't work. The first one had non-functional LAN and WAN ports (couldn't connect to modem, troubleshoot with loopback test - failed). The second I was able to get up and running and use successfully for one night before it fried. Complete meltdown, flashing power LED (typically corrupted firmware) but can't even ping over ethernet (not corrupted firmware). I will say this: When the second unit worked, it was remarkably fast. I had it set-up with a 5TB USB 3.0 hard drive and was able to stream 4K video over Wi-Fi to Chromecast without any issue. The price on this refurbished unit is unbeatable. I am ordering TWO more, hoping I will actually get one that works...and continues to work.

      Router OK - DST Not

      The Router is great, it has incredible coverage and works flawlessly. I was able to configure it to my needs and have it operational within 20 minutes. The DST Adapter however, not so good. There should be a disclaimer that if you own a 120 yo house it won't work. It has to be on the same electrical circuit as the router, and I have three different breaker boxes so it does me no good. The First router I ordered was DOA after two days, Best Buy took it right back and I tried this one. Like I said the router is PHENOMENAL, the coverage is so good I don't need the DST anyway. The DST gets 1 star and the Router (if separate) would get 5 Stars, so three for the combo.

      Fast router, a few missing features

      This router is easy to install. It worked well with the remote DST adapter. From a performance and reliability perspective, it was excellent. The missing function for me was 1) Inability to use router controlled parental control - you need to create an online account to make this happen unlike a competitive model. I might be old school but I like the router approach. 2) can't access updates and speed tests when a second router is in AP mode. 3) no netgear support for refurbished routers. But if you don't care about these issues, this is a very good router, reliable, good signal, excellent performance and easy to configure.

      Great WIFI coverage

      I bought this WIFI router because I did not have good coverage of all of my home with my old one. Specifically this one comes with the DST adapter which extends WIFI coverage via house wiring. The actual WIFI router has excellent coverage on its own, but the DST adapter provides additional coverage if needed. The downside with the DST adapter, is it provides two additional WIFI nodes in addition to the two provided by the main router. This means you have to separately log onto a different node when you want the stronger signal from the local DST adapter. Not a big deal, but was unexpected. All in all the system works great.

      Great Once I got a functional Device

      1st gave me issues right out of the box. Came with the password already configured, but when I attempted to log in it would not work. Had to connect directly to it to change the pwd. Once in, got it all set up and was ready to go. Then the unit would constantly loose connectivity. it was up and down all day after that. I updated the firmware but the problem continued to occur. This must have not been completely checked before they shipped it. The replacement install was much smoother and works like a champ. Would recommend for someone who has the patience to get one that works.

      Great Router For The Price

      We have been searching for a WIFI Router that could transmit a signal throughout our home. The unit comes with three prominent antennas that allow multiple direction setup. Also included with the purchase was a WIFI hot spot to further extend the network signal via AC plugin. This device offers gigabit transfer rates and separate WIFI channels to support more devices that require internet access. Setup was simple using the Netgear user interface and I have not had to reset the WIFI since purchased.

      My old router was not providing a good WIFI signal throughout the house so I purchased this refurbished router. Instructions for set up were clear enough that I was able to install myself and did not need the Geek Squad help that was included free with the purchase. Measured WIFI speeds and range before and after installation and both were much improved even before installing the included DST adapter.

      Returning Product

      Bought this product to upgrade from my old Dlink router a month ago. Product worked solid for 2 days, and now it keeps rebooting itself. It can reboot at least 10 times in a day by itself. I've read blogs, done all the factory reset, plugged into wall, and the issue is still the same. It can go a day without any reboot and the following day reboot 5 times within an hour. Not very ideal for me so I'll definitely be returning this product.
