Good speeds and no dropouts

This Netgear modem was purchased because I wanted to connect more devices via wifi and was looking for a good solution. I must tell it was reasonably inexpensive to buy and easy to set up. I just followed the quick set up guide that the modem came with and set it up within minutes. I love this modem, it has good speeds and no dropouts, I have been on the same IP address for months.

Simple and has a good range

I love this simple router, it has a good range and we all are connected via wifi with multiple devices and this router handles everything with ease. It is small and sits on a shelf and does not take much space, however, is very powerful and the wifi signal is strong and reliable, no dropouts.

Simple router works just fine

This is a cheap and basic router and its fine for our needs fr now. We are a couple so the maximum number of people using it at any time is two. It keeps up fine but I wouldn't recommend it for a larger family. Its pretty stable and I only occasionally reset it (not sure if it does anything). One day we will upgrade but its fine for now

Basic router does the job

This is a relatively cheap and basic router but we are just a couple and we can both be streaming at the same time without a hitch and that's all I need. It was quite simple to set up and reaches all the bedrooms in out modest home no problems at all. Simple but effective

Still works fine

We have had this for years but it still works fine. OK so N300 is not the fastest or latest but we often have two people streaming Netflix at the same time no worries. just occasionally I will reset it and it seem happy enough. Will wait for it to fault before I replace it. For now wits quite adequate

Great value for money

Great connection. When I bought this one they tried to convince me to spend more money and get a more expensive/“better quality” modem but honestly this one does the job and great value for the price.
Occasionally the wifi runs slow but quickly turn off and back on and no problems.

Value for money router and does the job well

I am happy that I bought this router, it is value for money, does the job well and I have not experienced any dropouts at all in comparison to my old router. The wifi range is also reliable and quite extensive, I would recommend this router to anyone who is looking for value for money and good reliable connection.

Nice router

This router has provided me with the best coverage of any router I have ever owned. Easy to set up. Priced competitively . I can highly recommend it to anyone having coverage problems in their house. I have had apple AirPort Extreme and the netgear beats it hands down for coverage

Good value for money

This router has an amazing range. I was on the market for a wi-fi extender and when I change the router, it works so well that I do not need any more extenders, I get 5 bars everywhere in the house. This router is reasonably priced and works without dropouts. I would recommend this router to a friend.

Value for money, worth buying modem.

This is a quality Netgear product you can connect to your ADSL network and access so many advanced functions. It's reliable and will last. It comes with the Ethernet cable, line cable, splitter and AC power plug. The wifi coverage covers my house and provides me with decent speeds up to 10mbs some days. If you're with a great provider they may even recommend this modem for your service.

Netgear is worth buying

Netgear N300 is a great little wifi range extender, it is small but versatile, we can now go into our back yard and use our iPads to connect to the internet and get a good signal strength. We are very impressed with the unit, and it’s size means it does not take up much room.

Working good

I have this modem for atleast 3 or 4 years now. It is a really good modem and never let me down, It is always on and never stopped working. I am going to buy a new one but the same brand as it is cheap price and working reasonably good.

Value for money

All what you need in a router with a great value for money. ADSL2+ support. Comes with splitter, line cable and Ethernet cable as well. Good Wifi coverage. I installed it in the first floor in my house by the staircase and still the Wifi coverage is great in the ground floor and all rooms in the first floor.

Good unit

I purchased this modem because it was reasonably priced and I was advised it was easy to install compared to others. It's worked well in my household for a few years with no issues. I have had some minor issues with my internet being slow and dropping out for short periods of time but that could be down to the internet provider or the modem, or a combination of both.. Either way the issues have been short-lived.

Date PurchasedJan 2016

Very good modem

This modem is very good for our ADSL needs (no NBN yet) and I have had no problems with it in our one-bedroom apartment. The signal that it provides is more than adequate for our living space and it wasn't too difficult to set up from the box (all instructions provided).

Date PurchasedJan 2018

Excellent value-for-money

I have had this for approximately 2 and a half years. I got it to replace my TPLink modem-router, which stopped working after about 9 months' use. I purchased my Netgear from JB Hi Fi. OK, it was twice the price of the TPLink I had before, but it's lasted twice as long so far and shows no signs of stopping. It's super easy to configure your ADSL connection with and I have never had a single issue with our WiFi connection throughout the house since we have had it, unlike when we had the TPLink, where we suffered from frequent drops in connection.

The only thing I'm disappointed by is that when we eventually are forced to convert to the NBN (whenever that may be), we won't be able to use it anymore. Aside from that, I can't fault this product and if I had to get a new modem-router for any reason, I'd buy one of these again in a heartbeat.

Not too bad

I have moved my house and was getting a bad reception of wifi and asked my internet provider why it is happening. I was told that my modem is old version that cannot capture good strength of wifi. I went to JB hifi and asked for advice and they have recommended this. I cannot say it is perfact and great but singals are good.

So far so good!

I only started using this for a week now. I also bought this secondhand as well. Connecting 8 wireless devices at once. No dropouts, continuous service. Really happy about it so far.....Wireless signal strengths is also very good. Easy setup using Netgear Genie. Highly reccoment this to a medium household.

Reliable modem with good range

This Netgear modem was easy to install and we connected all the devices via wi-fi. The wifi range is good and we our speed is good as well. We use ADSL 2 and would probably need to upgrade for NBN. The modem has antennas and looks a bit old-fashioned. However, it is reliable and the connection is stable.

Questions & Answers

Can the Netgear N300 be use on our Optus NBN to replace the Sagemcom modem that they supply?

I think you can keep your sagecom modem which accepts nbn signal and use the netgear router to distribute wifi signal throughout your houseHi, not sure I’m with TPG

when desktop is connected via cable and any wireless device connects download speed drops to 1.2mbps. This is dreadful. Can only have one user on the net at any time! very poor.

That is a bit bad. I have not had problems sharing two connections via Wireless only so far.

Can this netgear n300 modem router connect to bigpond adsl broadband?
