I hear you mate, I really had a bad experience with the Netgear hub (Virgin 20mb service). I am talking about constant wifi drops, if i tried to run any p2p .... it would totally lock up the router so I couldn't browse from any machine. etc etc
However, can you deny the solid performance / review of the WNDR3700 v1 ?
On a more serious note (from my previous flippant comment) I couldn't really tell you. However, I have read many good reviews of netgear products over the time yet I have seen more netgear routers doing "strange" things than ones working properly - such as web interface constantly freezing and needing a reboot, and/or locking you out for 10 min because it thinks someone else is logged into it. Unless something drastic happens I'd never buy any of their products. Belkin is a bag of [censored] too.
Linksys on the other hand are refreshingly easy to use and do exactly what they say on the tin.
As a bit of a side note, I don't pay too much attention to router reviews any more. I had a linksys AG241 and WAG54GS in the past and if you look at their reviews they aren't very good, numerous people complaining about silly things, yet I never really had any problems with them, and I used most features of them too - they are still both working perfectly as I passed them on to friends.
Considered a Draytek product?
