The Bottom Line: We are happy with our choice and feel it was one of the better routers out there for our needs.
It had been about 9 years since we bought our last router and with the advances in technology we were falling behind the times. Between the internet telephone we use dropping our calls to our son's computer throwing him off World of Warcrafts, it was time for a new one. We started shopping around and were quickly introduced to the Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router. We did our research and the we shopped around and found the price to be about standard everywhere, so we picked one up.

We have been happy with the choice we made and the dual band has helped a lot. There is a button to shut down the wireless, but anything plugged into the LAN ports still has internet, yes our son's laptop is hooked up to the wireless, so we can shut him down if necessary. :) The setup was extremely easy to do and there is no software that needs to be installed from a disc. There is a web interface to allow you to customize the setting to suit you particular needs. We were quoted $100 to have it setup from store, but that would have been a waste of $100.
We did post a video to Youtube showing the unboxing and the setup if you are interested in seeing what it looks like up close and how to set it up. Our Youtube channel is 'WeRmudfun', just look for the 'Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v4...Unboxing and Setup' video. You could also just copy and paste this link:
