Cons: Version 2 limits options

Pros: Cheap open source N router
Comment:
Bought with the intent of loading DD-WRTTurns 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.

Cons: Wireless could be stronger.

Pros: Lots of possibilities, Good price now (was pricier before), gigabit and N all in one. Open Source!
Comment:
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

Pros: Solid router giving great speeds and long uptime. Custom firmware.
Comment:
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.

Cons: weak antennasPITB to flash 3rd-party firmwares (TomatoUSB!)

Pros: TomatoUSB450 MHz CPUGBETomatoUSB!
Comment:
Great router when running TomatoUSB. No trouble doing speedtests on a 50/3 cable connection; should be good to 70 Mbps or so of routed throughput (depends on packet size and other factors of course).I love this router and I've deployed a few of them, besides using one as an AP in my own home, but I find the regular price a little high. I never pay more than $65 for these.Unless you need the GBE LAN ports or the higher throughput, you may want to consider the WNR2000-200PAS, which is not available here but can be had for significantly less money at some other places, or the RT-N16 which has comparable specs but better antennas.

Cons: none yet. although possibly a little pricey.

Pros: very solid gigabit switch, good wireless N throughput.
Comment:
works fine on my system. gigabit lan speeds are fast. Haven't had a single issue with this unit. I have not tried sharing a usb drive on the network through the router as I dont' need that with all my computers networked and my own online storage. So far the stock firmware is working just fine, so will leave it alone for now..

Cons: - Outer casing is a dust and fingerprint magnet- Boot up time

Pros: - DDWRT and Tomato support- Easy to press on/off button- Wireless on/off button- USB port- Good range
Comment:
Flashed with TomatoUSB first thing and has been running flawlessly as a print server for the past 3 months.I love how the on/off reset button can pressed with my finger. With my previous D-Link router, I always had to hunt for a pencil or pen to poke the tiny reset button LOLThe router also has surprisingly good wireless range with no external antennas. I was able to connect to it from 2 floors above where I installed the router.

Cons: -can't seem to get "g" devices working on the n network even in mixed mode

Pros: -can install DD-WRT-It's magical.
Comment:
Pricematched to ~$60, better than the "weekly special" price. Installed DD-WRT and it work wonders. I come from using a default bell router and will never go back. The old bell router is not just a modem. Though, I might start using the wireless on the old bell router again for the phones in the house since they only support G.Tried a transfer over the wireless and got 5MB/s (40mbps). The old speed was 2MB/s over the bell G. This is over n.

Pros: -Open platform for 3rd party firmware.-Great with DD-WRT.
Comment:
Great router that's easy to setup with DD-WRT. Some reviews state that the wireless signal is weak with DD-WRT installed. I haven't noticed any problems with it though.This router replaced my TP-link TL-WR741ND and I haven't had any more random router crashes since.

Cons: -Open source options reduce signal strength and wireless throughput at distance-Bright led lights-Had initial problems with port forwarding (seems to be fixed with the new firmware)

Pros: -Good signal strength and wireless performance-Good aesthetics-Open source options-Gigabit Ethernet
Comment:
I purchased this router on boxing day to replace my old wireless G D-link router (DI-624) in hopes of getting better wireless signal strength and faster network speeds. The WNR3500L satisfied these expectations but seems to have one major flaw.I noticed that torrent speeds dropped about half of what I usually get. If I used my old router for the same torrent the speeds would increase again. I tested this multiple times with different torrents over the last 2 months to confirm. I then installed Tomato hoping the speeds would be better, but torrent speeds still remained low.Subsequently, I manually forwarded the torrent ports which caused torrents to reach full speed but later dropped back down. So then I downloaded PFPortChecker to test if the ports are actually open, and I found out that the TCP port had trouble staying open after a limited time. Changing forwarded ports only temporarily opens up the TCP port.I don't believe this is a unique issue to my WNR3500L because I RMA'd this router and had troubles with the new one as well.Therefore, although there is a possibility of error on my part, I don't recommend this router for people who will be downloading torrents; although, every other aspect of the router is good.Update : After installing the latest firmware update  1.2.2.44 torrent speeds are back to max speeds and the router is a lot more stable. As a result, I'm changing my rating from 3 stars to 4 stars. This review was modfied by poster @ 03-23-11 12:37 PM

I already have a WRT54GL running tomato, but I wanted to keep it disable the wireless on it, and instead buy the WNR3500L and set it up as an 802.11N wireless access point.Installed DD_WRT and things are running great.

Cons: -The base is a thin and flimsy piece of plastic-Driver installation "errored" out on the first attempt-The shiny exterior is a dust and fingerprint magnet.-Is limited to 54mbps when using TKIP wireless encryption. AES works at full speed though.

Pros: -Very easy to follow instructions-Good signal strength-Has a USB port for network storage sharing-Doesn't run very hot (Judging from feeling the side of the router)
Comment:
I got this for sale on Boxing Day for $55. I feel that it is a good purchase overall. I would not buy it at its regular price of $90 though. The driver setup ended in an error after the installer finished an update  of some sort. (I'm guessing firmware) The installation went fine the second time I tried though.Configuring this router was extremely easy. The interface is very user friendly.The signal strength is good (At least, for my computer next door)The base that is included with this router is a thin and flimsy piece of plastic. It is wide enough to provide good stability for the router though, so this is a minor complaint.This router just screams "GLOSSY PLASTIC". It very prone to fingerprint and dust stains.

I have to said nowadays' routers are not so much difference. You can always upgrade them from DD-WRT. But if it come with USB ports that allow you plug in printers or extenal hard drive, they are quirt useful.

Cons: Stand is flimsy, combined with a light weight router it makes for a falling-off-your-desk danger if you plug in enough cables.No way to dim lights, or turn them off, not even with advanced firmware, makes the bright blue wireless light pretty annoying.

Pros: Best router I've owned:Solid hardware, fast cpu compared to other routers I've owned.Solid firmware, can also be flashed to open source firmwares such as tomato which include tons of great feature.Good wireless, top connection all over the house and so far noticed no random wireless connection drops as with many other routers I've owned previously.
Comment:
Overall excellent router, plugged in and worked right out of the box even with my modem which made many other routers sweat to get a connection.The ability to upgrade the firmware to DD-WRT or Tomato opens up a whole new realm of firmware possibilities, but be sure to do -extensive- research into the matter of upgrading firmwares as it could brick your router if done incorrectly.

Pros: DD-WRT and Tomato firmware support guaranteed!
Comment:
I've been a long time WRT54G with DD-WRT user. Recently I've been looking for a reasonably priced router with wifi-N, a gigabit switch, a USB port and the most important factor the ability to run DD-WRT out of the box. The Netgear WNR3500L satisfied all my requirements. At first I was a little sceptical as I've had bad experiences with Netgear products, but the specs and price were good enough to give the router a chance. Especially since many of the new routers have multiple versions, which might not be able to run DD-WRT, and I didn't want to take the chance to get a router which can only run the stock firmware.The router is now running a custom DD-WRT version made specifically for the WNR3500L. It's called the "Kong Mod', which is written by an individual on the "myopenrouter.com" forums. Running the router with this firmware is unbelievably fast. My old WRT54G(with the current recommended DD-WRT version) would get on average 14Mbps/sec on Speedtest.net.The WNR3500L with the Kong mod DD-WRT can pull on average 25-28Mbps/sec. My other test is downloading iTunes from Apple.WRT54G: avg ~1.3-1.5MB/secWNR3500L: avg 2.5MB/secOverall I'm very satisfied with the performance of the router.

I bought this router because it is an n router with bells and whistles. N only works when ALL the connecting computers are n capable, which was a bit of a disappointment. The bells and whistles are fabulous It supports a USB device. I connected a USB external drive. It works perfectly and is accessible from the internet. The ONLY thing I do not like about this router is its tendency to change the lan from a class c to a class a network.

I love all the features of this router. There were features that I thought would never be available based on my experience with other older routers. Does not interfere with other repeaters, wireless headsets, or other sensitive wireless equipment. With the RangeMax Dual Band N USB Adapter, I get 62Mbs through 3 walls and 80ft distance. Along with an automatic firmware update, this router has a fast WPS setup that rocks. Lots of pleasant surprises. For the price, I would not argue with this product.
