[NRNL] Netgear N600 / DGND3700 Modem Router Review

post #1 of 14

My first review, please be gentle, and constructive criticism is welcome :-)

Netgear N600 / DGND3700 Modem Router Review
( Source: NRNL.org )

Quote:
Overall, this is a product with great potential. It has great speed, good stability, nice looks and a boat load of features. If they polish off the few things Netgear seemed to have skimped on like including decent firmware, having a better circuitry layout and having better aligned heatsinks for it's main chips, this would then be an excellent product that I for one would definitely consider changing to from my beloved DGN2000.

3/5.

The WNDR3700 is nice and all but a DSLR modem isn't what most people want.

That may be your belief but I feel that it is a good idea because as it is cheap enough, it saves from some of the expense of having all these separate devices, and also makes for more physical room compared to having many separate devices.

I head this can be used as a ADSL2+ modem as well as a cable router
from example
ADSL ISP > DGND3700
or
Cable ISP > Cable Modem > DGND3700

Is that true?

I wish Netgear would hurry up and release the WNDR3800 already.

Billion 7800N can. Great modem/router.

Using it now for my ADSL connection and if my area every gets FTTH (*prays*), I'll just buy a fiber modem and plug it into the 7800N.
