    I do have a wndr3700 setup with the 2.4 band mixed, and with the 5ghz band n only. I have not had any problems with it losing throughput.

    Help finding a good gigabit router please

    You could try the linksys wrt310n, and just running the radio at g speeds.

    I used the stand that came with the router. It places the antennas at their highest point in the enclosure. After that, it is all based on your own enviroment. From the FCC photos, the 5ghz are located on the top right hand side, the 2.4ghz on the left, when the router is in it's stand.

    No problem, like some of these other folks are saying, the wndr3700 is a true dual band router. If you have no need for the the other band, then the wndr3700 may not be what you are looking for. There are several other single band gigabit routers out there that would suit your needs(heck if you...

    I also have a similar setup, but with a twist. I have three switches hooked to the primary wndr3700, two are unmanaged, and the third is a second wndr3700 I use for video streaming and legacy wireless. So the primary wndr3700 is handling the traffic from all of these sources. At last count...

    The nice thing about this router is that it allows you dial down the wireless to fit your environment, and the gigabit switch is spot on. I have had the DIR-655, and currently have a DGL-4500 that the WNDR3700 replaced, and both were good products until dlink started to mess up the firmware. The...

    I would say the issues folks are having with the WNDR3700 are due to the immense difficulty of making the NAS feature set work flawlessly with every flavor of USB controlled external hard drive. It seems most flash drives are OK at this point. I am impressed that they have addressed the...

    I use that setup because I found that the WNDR3700 is the faster of two. Also, the 610N only runs N on the 5ghz, as the 2.4ghz serves to provide connectivity to the g only devices in my network. The WNDR3700 is all n, all the time.

    I have both units, the WNDR3700 is my main router, and the WRT610N is running DD-WRT and is a access point only for the upstairs. The main difference I have found is the range of the WNDR3700 is much better on both radios than the WRT610N. I don't use the usb on either unit, as I have a...
