    Expert Review

    The WNDR3700v2 is no longer the flagship in Netgear's lineup, but remains worthy of consideration because of its impressive overall performance. Netgear has given the 'v2' version of this highly-rated router several internal modifications, though the end results are a mixed bag. Both owner reviews and SmallNetBuilder's testing highlight the fact that 5 GHz performance is actually decreased compared to the original. Detailed speed testing shows minor improvements in the 2.4 GHz band, though this is likely to go unnoticed in the real world. Despite the changes, the WNDR3700v2 still outperforms the vast majority of today's routers. The WNDR3700v2 is capable of simultaneous dual-band operation, so you can connect game consoles to the 2.4 GHz band while 5 GHz-capable devices can utilize that band's lack of interference. If you enjoy tinkering with routers, you'll be happy to know that the WNDR3700v2 can be modified to run customized DD-WRT firmware to suit your needs. However, do so at your own risk - the results will vary, and may not be to your liking.Rating: 4.25/5

    I don't game much with the PS3, but haven't had any problems with it on my PS3. I don't lag and I have had 5 Computers, 1 iTouch, and my PS3 hooked up to this without any problems. Only complaint is that the USB doesn't have printer support. The media server works with the PS3.

    I've seen you review and it says it's the best gaming router. I've bought a belkin N router because it says it was good for gaming, but it wasn't. It constantly lagged and kick me out of rooms. This is the PS3 the belkin sucks at. Somewhere else I read that a d-link xtreme n gaming router was the best because it automatically opens the ports needed. I'm furious with lag and also tired of hearing my friends blame me for these bad connections. Is this netgear router the best for PS3? I'll be having 3 desktops,itouch hooked on to this too but I seriously need to know if this will solve my PS3 lag problems permanently. I'm willing to invest if it does. Please help and answer.
