    I have an old Netgear router I am using as an ethernet hub or access point. The netgear hardware seems fine and I have never had any problems. I also upgraded to an Asus router. Netgear's support is terrible. After 90 days, you will have to pay for support, even if it caused by a Netgear software change. ASUS support is better, however, they too have issues as support telling me my ASUS router was not mesh capable on the guest network when ASUS's web page said it was supported.

    I agree that the Netgear hardware is mostly fine. I have an old DGND3700v1 with 3rd party firmware that has been very reliable at another location. I got the firmware from richud.com and I'll say that Netgear would only dream of creating firmware this reliable and configurable. I once thought Netgear was great kit, but not anymore, takes more than decent hardware to make a product great!

    I think that is the same model as I have, except mine might be a version 2 or 3. No problems with the router, but since Netgear has not updated the firmware in a long time I figured it was time to replace it. It has now been delegated to be an ethernet switch access point for a few wired devices in another room.
