Netgear WNDR4500 N900 Wireless Router Review

The NETGEAR N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router is said to deliver the ultimate performance and range, with a fast, reliable and secure wireless connection to the Internet. The Netgear N900 wireless provides up to 450 + 450 Mbps speed and with simultaneous dual band technology it avoids interference ensuring top WiFi speeds. Read on to see how this wireless router performs when we try it out!

Our experience with the Netgear N900 router is that it handles complex traffic very nicely and is really transparent on your network. We never had any issues at all with trying to stream movies or music. This included 1080p movie files as well as FLAC and other lossless music files. After we tried to overload the network we did notice that WMM does make a difference in your connection speed so if there is one recommendation we can give to users out there, it is to check your router’s firmware and enable WMM. Many manufacturers will try and use the functionality of WMM or QoS and market these tools as unique to their own brand, but you should know and recognize that many routers and most newer WiFi adapters support this function already. However, most people don’t know that they need to actually turn it on...

Apparently Netgear has fixed the English language. I didn't know that there was something better than the best but apparently it's ultimate.

It's nice to see routers progressing almost as fast as the rest of the technology sector. Now if they could figure out a way to keep them running for more than a year. Seems like I've gone through 6 routers in the last 6 years. One of those was a highend D-Link that didn't last very long.

I just picked up this exact router to upgrade my old network this week and I am very happy with it so far. It was very easy to setup and I really can tell the difference between 802.11G and 802.11N! The range and signal strength is better than my old router also.
