Netgear RangeMax DGN3500 review

£110 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Netgear

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Netgear’s RangeMax DGN3500 is a neatly designed wireless-n router that works well, provided that your home network is Windows-only.

Netgear’s RangeMax DGN3500 is a neatly designed wireless-n router that works well, provided that your home network is Windows-only.

The Netgear RangeMax DGN3500 uses internal antennae to transmit a wireless signal. That gives it a slimline design and it can be laid flat or turned on its side, so it takes up little desk space.

Four gigabit ethernet ports are provided with the Netgear RangeMax DGN3500 for additional wired connections, plus a USB port that allows you to share a hard drive on your network. There’s also a dedicated network for guests with restricted access, so there's no need to share your own security password.

The bundled Smart Wizard software is Windows-only, with Mac users having to wade through the Netgear RangeMax DGN3500's PDF manual to work out how to set up the router using its browser interface. This approach isn't ideal for tech novices.

Although the Netgear RangeMax DGN3500 Wi-Fi router is compatible with Windows and Mac, the setup process is far more tricky with Apple machines. But for Windows users, the Netgear takes up little desk space and works well.
