Netgear WNR1000 with Plusnet


Established Member
can someone who owns a Netgear WNR 1000 or is on a Plusnet fibre service or knows about this router please help me, I need some info.

does it support a mode where both G devices and N devices can connect at seperate speeds or does the router lower the speed in order for G devices to connect so that even the N device will be running at G speeds?

It runs in either N or G mode

N will run backwards to work with G

though the speed will drop to a G minimum 54Mbps.

in your experience does it give better G coverage than a G router or is that just Netgear sales pitch?

also does anyone know of a cable router that runs seperate wireless streams one for G and another N so that N devices can maintain their higher speed?

Well to be honestly if its got decent aerials it should be fine even if its just G

its more like if you have a big house and/or you need big throughput speeds like streaming HD then N is needed

something like this wndr3400

or higher end WNDR4000

both are dual band so you could have a 5Ghz N channel and a 2.4Ghz G channel.
