It's a good router

by Terry on 9/16/2013

Just bought the netgear wnr3500L today to upgrade my dlink. Within 5 minutes, the Lan was up and running. The WIFI setup with password was simple as well. Attach a portable WD 250GB into the usb port on the netgear and run the setup utility. It worked. It might be my perception but it seems the speed of accessing the files on my pc (with only 10Mb ethernet port) from other pcs in the network is much faster. I am in the process of using the attached USB portable drive as the NAS drive, instead of the harddrive on my pc, to see if that would speed up the access even more. I am looking at replacing the old pcs on the network with the new ones with gigabit ethernet. Hope that will also increase accessing speed as well.
