None of the routers in this test performed poorly, but there were enough differences that we can draw a few conclusions. If you don't want to spend too much but still want decent performance, then the best options are the Linksys EA2700, Netgear...

Incredibly fast, stylish and packed with features, making it perfect for offices and media enthusiasts that don’t want to invest in a full 802.11ac setup...

When we reviewed the N750 wireless router from TP-Link, we found a competent if rather unattractive performer. Now we have the N900 from Netgear which offers a slightly higher level of performance and a much more attractive package. There's a price...

The Netgear WNDR4500 is the company’s top-of-the-line router (unless we count in the recently announced equipment with 802.11ac support). It looks good with its large and pretty case with in-built antennas, handy indication system, two USB ports,...

It's nice to see that none of the routers in this test perform poorly, but a few of them don't seem to take advantage of the extra data stream. We would still choose the 300n Netgear WNDR3800 over no less than nine of the fourteen 450N routers in this...

Netgear's N900 is a fast unit when it comes to wireless networking, and is a decent solution for those of you who can't wait until 802.11ac routers. Both its short and long range results were impressive in our tests. You pay quite a price for that...

Today we have the high end WNDR4500 Router and WNDA4100 USB adapter on our test bench. With dual band and 900MBPS specification along with dual USB connectors and the expected GB LAN ports these two devices could be the hardware to solve all our home...

The N900 has excellent range when used with suitable client devices, and has decent real-world performance but - as with any of the new breed of 450Mbps routers - don't expect it to work miracles, in areas with heavy interference. The feature set,...

We have been highly impressed with Netgear's routers of late, and the W4500 continues this trend. This dual band router supports Mbps connections as long as you have a compatible adapter, but even without this it delivers good, consistent speeds. We...

While Netgear makes frustrating choices with set-up, and imposes ridiculous restarts when you apply settings, the sheer wireless performance of the WNDR4500 cannot be...

The physically large Netgear N900 is a very capable router that took our 802.11n home network to a higher level in a number of ways. At $369, however, it is about $100 more expensive than you’d expect to pay for a high-end Wi-Fi router. For example,...

The Netgear N900 isn't exactly revolutionary by Netgear's own standards, but that isn't really a bad thing. Netgear offers a deep suite of features, with an easy to use configuration interface that should have even networking newbies up and running...

Netgear's big beefy dual-band router delivers the fastest throughput we've seen on the 2.4 GHz band, which many of your consumer electronics devices probably use....

It's easy to become jaded when you review as much cutting-edge hardware as we do. We try not to be curmudgeons, but we do get grumpy when next-gen hardware fails to make a leap in performance-or worse, when it falls behind the gear it's intended to...

There’s plenty to like about the Netgear WNDR4500. It’s compact and neatly designed, and the setup process is tremendously straightforward. Right now, Netgear’s Genie app is of more interest to novice users, but if the company can deliver on the...
