    I have this modem router at home. If you have TPG as your ISP, this modem takes forever to sync once you turn the power off on this unit (I've waited for more than 15mins for it to connect to the ISP). TPG told me it's a common problem with all the Netgear modems for some reason. Also, the wireless on this unit isn't the best especially the 5Ghz, the signal isn't reliable and slows to a halt at times. That's why i usually just use the 2.4Ghz frequency.
    Nice and fast otherwise, but the 20min+ just to connect would drive anybody nuts!

      wow, I have the same one and TPG as my provider as well, but it usually only takes about 1-3 minutes to connect. I would agree 5Ghz signal isn't great though, and as you, I stick with 2.4

    •  

      ~15 minutes for me too - but i do have version 1. annoying, but i rarely turn the power off.

    •  

      I have the same modem and TPG, and it only takes a minute or two to connect after powering it off. Something is wrong with your line maybe?

    •  

      I picked up the V2 about 6 months ago for $143.

      Nothing bad to say about this unit, does exactly what it says. I'm also with tpg and I am not experiencing any of the issues described here - takes approx 2 minutes to reconnect after a reset which is no longer than any other modem I have owned.

      Usb/readyshare works although it's extremely slow, maybe they should have implemented usb3

    •  

      i have the v2 model running via TPG and have no timely sync issues at all.
      magnificent modem for the price. EDIT - not neccessarily this price
      as others have said wifi range isn't great at long distances tho being the only semi concern.

    Which modem/router do you suggest. Yes I have TPG and my ASUS N11 just died today after serving 3 years.

    •  

      For an all in one I just got the ASUS DSL-N55U for ~$165 and can say its being rock solid, but only recommend if you are close to your exchange as uses Ralink/trend chipset.

  •  

    I'm using DLINK 2740 works ok.

    I bought this last week from mwave, tried it with TPG adsl2+ and was a nightmare, so I returned it and bought the Billion 7800NL from MSY. working like a charm now. If you're with TPG, have a look at whirlpool and you'll see lots of users having issues with this modem router. :)

    Edit: 7800NL has no dual band but is also 50 dollars cheaper :)

    If you want to use the USB 'Readyshare' feature for video then beware that it is totally broken on this unit, and the last I knew Netgear refused to fix it. It will read the USB device's contents in, complete, then do it again ad infinitum, unless you change a setting to do it at specific intervals. So you can't have it just update on the fly as you add new things to the drive like it is supposed to do. I update mine by copying files then unplugging and replugging the USB cable, hardly ideal.

    As such I'm never, ever, never buying Netgear again when they can't be bothered making things that work properly. Obviously I also wouldn't recommend them to anybody else. ;)

    Too expensive, wait until it falls to $50

    I have V1. Great modem, wish it was a little smaller.

    Keep in mind though, Netgear offers a dual band 900Mbps version as well.

    And also, a new and better wireless standard is set to replace N soon.

    Still, I would buy this no hesitation if I was in need of a modem/router.

    •  

      The ac standard is already out although you have to pay a premium for that. Also ac wireless adaptors are not that readily available yet and I have yet to see it implemented into notebooks/ultrabooks.

      •  

        It is an agreed upon standard unlike with N where there are or were some differences between OEMs, each doing their own thing.

  •  

    I have the same modem but with this model wi-fi, my Nymgo wouldn't launch in iPhone. Has anyone the same problem?

  •  

    Great device this, one of my best tech purchases. Paid around $135 using price beat at Officeworks

    cry for the days of the good old DG834g that just worked and worked, and 5 VPN endpoints!

    •  

      Still have one from 2004 that I use as my go-to test modem :)

      Its my only ADSL wifi modem… was it that long ago that I bought it? Its on 24/7… wow… maybe I should upgrade?? but if it ain't broke….. hmmmm decisions decisions

  •  

    AIO modem/routers are often rubbish. Get something like a TP-Link 8817 modem for less than $25 if you're within 2.5km of your exchange and then go to Officeworks and get them to pricematch the Netgear WNDR3800 for $103. Best combo by far in that price range.

  •  

    Got it from Officeworks (Pricematch) for $128 when the v2 first came out. Hook with TPG ADSL2+ no problem. Takes 1-2 minutes to sync if I turn it off. 5GHz is a bit weaker than 2.4Ghz but it works ok for me, no dropout or halt.
    Sadly no VPN in v2 (I think there was VPN in v1), and this modem doesn't support multiple PVC Connection so you can't use TPG IPTV, but overall it's a very good device.

  •  

    ODUBZ Windsor (QLD) Price matched the Shopping express price on Saturday, not all staff are clued in on the v1 v2 thing, Think it was easier because it was crazy busy back to school times…Mind you I am quietly confident that most stores will have the V2 Stock by now.

  •  

    I have just installed the dgnd3700 for my dad.. he has a 3 storey house.. concrete floors on every level.

    Perfect signal through every part of the house.. rock solid signal too.

    Authenticating tpg in under 45 seconds. No drop outs or internet outages.. steady 14mbps downstream connection..

    Fantastic unit..

  •  

    Centrecom has this now for $130. It does not say whether it's v1 or v2 but I would think it is v2.

    It mentions 2 USB ports. My v1 only has 1.
