I had netgear before and they are hit and miss. They usually work good in beginning, but die out. I am staying away from all refurb routers. Will wait for new one at this price.
Hate my wndr3700 every day, firmware updates in the double digits that never fixed the inherent problems... then they just gave up. Not to mention the incredibly terrible tech support, but netgear does not stand alone there.
I guess in their defense, it just seems like every simultaneous dual band router on the market is plagued with problems.
I always put on DD-WRT firmware on all my routers, but still if the hardware is bad it wont help.
I recently bought an ASUS N router for $22 and it runs great with DDWRT. Ill keep using that @300mbps until a real good dual 5ghz deal comes along..new ofcourse..
