    Excellent Speed and Range Increase from Netgear WNDR3700

    • Written by from SANTA CLARA

    Replaced a year old Netgear WNDR3700 and this router is amazing! Speed is very quick compared and range has been extended too. I bought this with an Airport Express to connect a network printer and it automatically connected to it. It also extended the my network without an ethernet cord attached from the Airport Time Capsule and the Express acted as an access point as well as connecting my printer. The Time Capsule portion is also successfully backing up 3 computers as well. I wish I had bought this router earlier! Worth every penny!

    Not Very Impressed... Slow to Backup on Snow Leopard

    • Written by from Beavercreek

    I spent the extra $100 to get the latest and now wish I went with the older (and cheaper) tried and true. Setup was ok, although confusing at times particulary when a screen shared auto configuration with blanks for manual settings and no clear header saying those blanks were for manual configuration. The instructions on that screen also read more like they were written for a computer programmer rather than an end user. That all being said, the real disappointment is the slow, slow, slow backup speed So far it's taken 2 hours to backup 75GB. And it seems to take 2-5 minutes to startup. What's with that? The Apple rep told me this was the latest and greatest and it is the future, but honestly it's at least five times slower than what it's replacing. Maybe it will get better after the first backup, I don't know, but right out of the box it's a disappointment for backup. The Wi-Fi seems to work good, but that's not really the main reason why I bought it. Remember, Time Machine backs up every hour and at that slow speed it's going to be running into itself If I add more than 40GB of data.

    Incredible, I don't get the bad reviews at all!

    • Written by from Troy

    I was surprised to see so many people writing bad reviews about things as silly as not liking the packaging! I bought one anyway trusting apple like I have been for the last 10 years, and I have not been let down! My previous router was putting out 35-40mbs when I was supposed to be getting 100. After only 5 minutes of setting up (literally) I was running at 115 mbs right away. Other people have complained that it took hours for their backup...The setup manual specifically states that due to the very large amount of data being backed up during the first initial backup you should connect via ethernet. I was going to sleep anyways so I didn't bother, but for those of you who don't want to wait 6-8 hours for your first backup (mine was 1/2 a terabit) then you should plug it in. All backups since have only taken a few minutes and I don't even notice they are happening.

    Great product

    • Written by from Statesboro

    This is a great product. The ad wireless is faster, but my network provider is slow so I can't fully enjoy it. N wifi is also noticbly faster though. It is good for backing up your mac but I wish you could handle the backups easier because time machine sometimes gets confusing. Otherwise, I would recommend this product highly.

    Works well so far

    • Written by from Brownstown

    Fast = yes
    Easy = yes
    Can it host files like a NAS = yes
    To set this up you just have to log onto the router from each Mac computer

    What would make this better? = convenient local sync like a personal cloud such as drop box or sugar sync

    I'm still working on how to network attach a USB printer...

    LOVE

    I don't usually write reviews but i just purchased this and I love it. I am happy I bought it because the reviews almost deterred me. It's only the first day, but it works great. Easy set up, no problems at all.

    Outstanding Product

    • Written by from Birmingham

    I live in a building that has a lot of disturbance. Upgrading to this router solved the issues of spotty service that I was having with a Netgear router. Configuration was performed using my Phone 5S. My pings are now consistent and never get any timeouts. Love it!

    Great Router, Love the Extra Features.

    • Written by from Pflugerville

    I actually purchased both an Airport Express, and the Airport time Capsule, and couldn't be happier. I put the Express down stairs and the Time Capsule in my room to extend the Wi-fi network upstairs. It has worked flawlessly so far, and the speed upstairs is a big plus. Time Machine works great on my new Macbook Pro, but the biggest selling point for me was the USB port on the back of the Time Capsule. I reformated an old WD 1 Tb drive I had for my old PC and plugged it into the back of the Time Capsule. I love being able to upload files from my two Macs or my Moms PC to the drive over my Wi-fi network, It's like my households own personal Cloud. Would highly recomnmend to anyone on the market. Thumbs up Apple.

    The best just got better

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Easily the best update to one of Apple's signature devices for me. Takes barely a minute to set up and have running, helped by the excellent Airport Utility. It is everything you want in a backup device, it really does just work.

    The footprint is smaller than the previous version although of course it's taller. The range of this device is superb, even in my 3,600 sq. ft. house. There are full bars and very quick wifi downloads - even using Time Warner - on all other devices in the house [2 iPhones, 2 iPads, 3 iMacs and a Macbook Pro].

    Excellent device. Highly recommended.

    Nice and good-looking router

    • Written by from Παλαιό Φάληρο

    It's one of the very few and robust home solutions for backing up hard drive! At the same time is a very good wi-fi router.

    Plus:
    It's silent, I have met some routers that make a lot of noise

    Very easy to setup with any apple device or windows 7.

    I simultaneously synchronize my iphone, run back up, surf the internet, stream HD content on my apple TV without a hussle and all these through my 72Mbps settled laptop speed.

    Minus are:
    It's mildly hot all the time, not extremely though

    It's formatted as FAT32 so it won't serve windows machines always at it's best. For example Windows System Image requires NTFS.

    You can plug in only FAT32 Hard Drives. If you have a disk formatted otherwise, then it will show up but it won't be usable.

    Best router I ever had

    • Written by from Cary

    It took 10 minutes to make it work (including unpacking, plugging and typing in passwords for new network from my iPad). Network speed is amazing: both on WiFi and gigabit LAN ports. Internal disks are mapped as network shares so you can easily access from any mac/*nix/windows machines.
    The only minor issue I've met: plastic legs at the bottom are sliding on my table so I have to place the device in secured position to avoid accidental drop.

    I had one of the earlier time capsules, I bought this to increase speed, needed a larger drive and increase wifi range. Does all the above. A+ Apple.... good job!

    Excellent upgrade from previous generation

    • Written by from BROAD BROOK

    This is my fourth Time Capsule since they were first introduced and, so far, it is definitely the best. Significant improvement in both WiFi range and speed. Right now I am getting throughput of 450 on 802.11n with my MacBook Pro Retina 15 and right next to it am getting 850 on the new .ac standard with my new MacBook Air 11. Also the form factor and design are top-notch. The TC looks very impressive on my desk and I heartily endorse springing for the new model.

    Digital Saver!!

    • Written by from GATINEAU

    I love this router. My signal has become more stable and stronger. I now have access to my Wi-Fi everywhere in the house. The time capsule is working seamlessly and I couldn't be happier. Is it expensive? Yes however the payoff has been well worth it.

    Great speed and functionality however decreased range

    • Written by from North Adelaide

    I bought the ATC mainly for the additional backup and was pleased to see that it boasts good range, speed along with the 2tb of available backup. Works great have been able to access TC with all machines and the wireless speed is up on my previous router however we live in a double brick apartment and the range compared to my old Dlink DIR618 is questionable. I have needed to add an AP Express as an extender so we are able to get access in the bedrooms of the apartment.

    Overall great product but disappointed that the range is not up to what is advertised.

    Everything you can ask for!

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I purchased this rougher due to the reliability issues I was having with my old one. I have had it for about a week now and am simply amazed at how much better this one is. The range coverage I am getting is almost twice as good as the old one. I also am averaging a speed thru the router 4-5mpbs faster than the old. This router is definitely worth the cost!

    Excellent

    • Written by from New Westminster

    I have used many different WiFi routers over the years, including custom open-source versions, but this device beats them all in terms of ease-of-use and functionality. I have installed two AirPort Time Capsules so far and they have been flawless, both as WiFi access points and TimeMachine disks, for several months of 24x7 operation. The beam steering antennas provide outstanding range with no drop-outs. They provide solid performance for several Macs, Windows laptops, Android tablets and smartphones. Excellent value.
