With the firmware Netgear has been spitting out for the last year I would never consider Netgear again. Enough said !!!

Unless it's a Voxel supported model maybe.

Note that this is really a two-stream router. NETGEAR's latest marketing strategy is to inflate stream count by adding together both bands.

All of the pre-literature said that walmart was selling an RAX40. This was a joint scam run by Netgear and Walmart to deceive and cheat consumers. The RAX35 has no USB port although the netgear site said it did at the time, and the internal specs not posted on techinfodepot. Unknown at this point in time, but suspected to be identical to the RAX40. The RAX 35,40,80, and 120 can all be telnetted from the lan side, and probably from the WAN side, too. Easily hacked, as most netgears are.

There may be some minor interest in upgrading the RAX40 to open source software in the future, but availability of the Intel wifi sdk will be a difficulty. There is only one developer who can do it at present. no OSS interest if no usb port.

The RAX35 will be basically worthless in a few months, with the RAX40 having some residual value. Best to return rax35 to Walmart while you still can. It's a worthless scam item

Why is this a scam? How are they deceiving and cheating customers?

The RAX35 has no USB port, and the specs are unknown at this point in time...
There is a link to the datasheet on that web-page and also on Netgear's site here.

NETGEAR and other vendors often do special versions of products sold only by certain retailers and with a tweak or two for features. Usually it's Costco or Sam's Club. This is not a scam.

The consumer scam rax35(i reported to FTC) shows 2.4gbps using windows 10(their network applet), and intel ax200 card., as a channel is interfered with drops to 1.7gbps. set to channel 100 dfs. Original netgear site on nov 26 had false specs. fully understand it probably is not doing 2.4gbps, just a windows report.
