Easy to set up, small compact design!
Great product for the price. NCIX has many great products. Only place I buy my parts from. Good quality! Two thumbs up (Y) (Y)

Experience: 60 Days


this machine has "DOS" prevention, which make my home internet working all day even my network is under attack
no wall mount
this is most valuable and important device , I own two of these routers linked up them one by one, those hacking activity trying to hack the first one, they find the second one is a firewall too. Keep you save from spying or killing your motherboard.

Experience: 2 Years


Great Price
Great Build
Great Support
Great GUI
Not the best Signal but good for a small home
Netgear continues to build great routers.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Easy to set up
loaded tomato in 5 minutes
None so far
Loaded tomato custom firmware in 5 minutes. Using it seamlessly as a second router for vpn only (American netflix). It doesn't say in the description bit this is the Lv2 model, just search tomato firmware for wnr3500lv2 and install. Awesome product!

Experience: 3 Months


good value, works with Tomato
no 5GHz band
this is a high quality router good for everyday home use. good signal. has QoS. you can put Tomato firmware on it and it becomes a very good router.

Experience: 2 Days


- Price
- Easy Setup
- Pushed firmware update
- None to my need
Bought this to replace my WRT54GC, which finally broke after 9 years. So far, setting up this router is no brainer. I'm satisfy with its range in my apartment. You might want to reconsider in buying something gives wider range like Asus RTN66U for better coverage.

Experience: 3 Weeks


Cheap open source N router
Version 2 limits options
Bought with the intent of loading DD-WRT
Turns out that you can't load all firmwares because it's version 2, a lot of builds can only use v1. That's acceptable because it worked in the end but I would have liked to know before I bought.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Fast, good firmware, tomato support
The router is great, it can handle my torrent with many connection (my old wrt54g was dropping each time).

Had to buy a new router to have something reliable for my new Obi110

Experience: 2 Years


Lots of possibilities, Good price now (was pricier before), gigabit and N all in one. Open Source!
Wireless could be stronger.
At release, it was one of the first open source router with gigabit and G support(almost 3 years ago).

Bought it 2 year ago and it's working fine since. Tried with DD-wrt and Tomato and i kept Tomato. Had no problem and you can configure some advanced settings like QOS, DDns, bandwidth monitor.

The wireless strength is not always strong. Hard to tell if it's the router, the laptop or something in the street.

If you want to install open source firmware, there is a nice community at myopenrouter.com.
I'm using Toastman's Tomato Firmware for WNR3500L w/ USB (Ext) 1.28.something

Experience: 10 Months


Solid router giving great speeds and long uptime. Custom firmware.
Only single band wireless.
Great upgrade after having a WRT54G for years. I have been running Tomato on it since day 1 with very few problems. My only problems relate to Tomato and implementation of QOS. I've had the wireless drop  on some devices from time to time but I have a feeling those are device related rather than router related.
