Exceeded my expectations!

on 11/5/2012

Great product - provided the extra security I was looking for vs. the wireless router provided by my DSL provider, with an added bonus of a significantly stronger signal and therefore wider range of access. While it supports attaching a USB hard drive as a NAS, my only big wish is that it would support making that drive cloud-accessible like some of Netgear's other routers will do. Crossing my fingers for a firmware update someday that will do that for me.

Critical to know before you buy this product

This router allows you to have 2 wireless networks but what Netgear will not tell you is that if you change the default wireless network names or passwords that only 1 wireless network will work. I'll say it a different way...leave the default settings in place and use the 5 Ghz for Video streaming only. The router is good and powerful one ...
