Netgear WNDR4500 Review

  • 4.0 / 5
    • The good:
      450Mbps wireless-n standard compliant, impressive true dual-band transmission, two USB 2.0 ports for printing and NAS, decent media streaming/NAS performance
    • The bad:
      Limited positoning options, bulky size, no real edge over competitors

    As simultaneous dual-band transmission became monotonous, router manufacturers turn to 450Mbps (3Rx3T) technology to spice up their network peripherals. Netgear's own version is the WNDR4500, and it promises to combine all the useful features that distinguished its previous models with faster and more reliable performance. This router has two USB 2.0 ports to accomodate NAS and network printer functions simultaneously. The rest of its outer features include color-coded status indicators for the 2.4GHz- and 5GHz bandwidths, WiFi signal and LAN/USB ports in use. There's also a power socket, reset and WPS buttons, WiFi signal switch, and Gigabit LAN and WAN ports. Compared to traditional RangeMax designs, the WNDR4500 has added size and heft, and in exchange, lost positioning flexibility that its predecessors had; the router can only stand upright. The Genie app proves to be novice-friendly enough during installation, though its web UI is recommended for advanced users. Those who want to monitor and limit their bandwidth usage will also greatly benefit from the Traffic Meter, while those looking to filter keyword searches sites will find the Parental Control options very comprehensive. The router can also serve as a FTP or HTTP server, stream digital content to DLNA-compliant devices, and provide remote access to its network. Other than being packed with features, the WNDR4500 is also built with the 450Mbps wireless standard that significantly improves its speed, range and signal integrity in both 2.4GHz- and 5GHz bandwidths. It performs remarkably well even without the extra boost, yet only 3Rx3T-compliant devices can fully reap its benefits. While most mobile gadgets are expected to pick up, the advent of wireless-ac technology is bound to make the decision tougher for prospective buyers. There's no denying that Netgear took some backward steps in creating the WNDR4500. And truth be told, it doesn't have a clear edge over other routers with similar features. But if you like a high-performance router complete with Netgear's usual offerings, and are planning to wait 'til the wireless-ac technology matures, then this N900 router can definitely take care of your home/small business network.
