    Excellent Speed and Range Increase from Netgear WNDR3700

    • Written by from SANTA CLARA

    Replaced a year old Netgear WNDR3700 and this router is amazing! Speed is very quick compared and range has been extended too. I bought this with an Airport Express to connect a network printer and it automatically connected to it. It also extended the my network without an ethernet cord attached from the Airport Time Capsule and the Express acted as an access point as well as connecting my printer. The Time Capsule portion is also successfully backing up 3 computers as well. I wish I had bought this router earlier! Worth every penny!

    The best just got better

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Easily the best update to one of Apple's signature devices for me. Takes barely a minute to set up and have running, helped by the excellent Airport Utility. It is everything you want in a backup device, it really does just work.

    The footprint is smaller than the previous version although of course it's taller. The range of this device is superb, even in my 3,600 sq. ft. house. There are full bars and very quick wifi downloads - even using Time Warner - on all other devices in the house [2 iPhones, 2 iPads, 3 iMacs and a Macbook Pro].

    Excellent device. Highly recommended.

    Nice and good-looking router

    • Written by from Παλαιό Φάληρο

    It's one of the very few and robust home solutions for backing up hard drive! At the same time is a very good wi-fi router.

    It's silent, I have met some routers that make a lot of noise

    Very easy to setup with any apple device or windows 7.

    I simultaneously synchronize my iphone, run back up, surf the internet, stream HD content on my apple TV without a hussle and all these through my 72Mbps settled laptop speed.

    Minus are:
    It's mildly hot all the time, not extremely though

    It's formatted as FAT32 so it won't serve windows machines always at it's best. For example Windows System Image requires NTFS.

    You can plug in only FAT32 Hard Drives. If you have a disk formatted otherwise, then it will show up but it won't be usable.

    Just got my new Time Capsule

    • Written by from Homestead

    I outgrew my old Time Capsule so time for a new one. I bought the 2GB version and overall the set up was in true Apple style, dummy proof. Things were up and running in a matter of minutes. What I don't like is that it does not provide any configuration settings that will allow you to monitor internet traffic. Great router, very strong signals throughout the house. If it had some advance settings I'd be more generous with my ratings.

    Best router I ever had

    • Written by from Cary

    It took 10 minutes to make it work (including unpacking, plugging and typing in passwords for new network from my iPad). Network speed is amazing: both on WiFi and gigabit LAN ports. Internal disks are mapped as network shares so you can easily access from any mac/*nix/windows machines.
    The only minor issue I've met: plastic legs at the bottom are sliding on my table so I have to place the device in secured position to avoid accidental drop.

    This one works great!

    • Written by from CORINTH

    My first TC (purchased about 2 years ago) had some mating issues with my other equipment - likely the Comcast modem. So I returned the TC. I am still with Comcast, but have purchased my own (ZOOM) modem and decided to try another TC. Hooked it all up, and it works great! Fast wifi connections all throughout the house, whether on our MBA's, iPhones, Wii U, XBOX, TV set or DirecTv. Plus, we can now back our MBA's up wirelessly! Granted this is still a new set-up, so longevity is still TBD, but initially, it is working great!

    (Also, to note, this time I bought one from Amazon. It was used, so I returned it and bought it from Apple instead. I would not suggest buying from anyone other than Apple unless you can physically see that it is indeed a brand new unit you will be bringing home.)

    3 years later and still runs perfect

    • Written by from Kanata

    Got this three years ago as a way for me to back up my hard drive, and to use as a router as I was going off to school. I have never had a single issue or problem with it. The router capabilities are fantastic and it significantly increases the range for the internet. Tried a WD backup but had a few issues with it, so decided to upgrade to this. Love it and still do.

    Poor performance

    • Written by from Lelystad

    Wifi signal is horrible, I have 2 of them to have signal in my home.
    Performance is horrible, I tried to use it for iTunes, but due to performance issues iTunes will not download to that location.
    Backup doesn't work on the Timecapsule due to performance issues.
    I used the time capsule as router.... Well it brings back old times, just like a dial up connection..
    Apple TV streaming.... nah, forget it.
    Apple support??? HA, I would be better of asking my wife.

    This all on a stable internet connection of 200Mbits. Got my old router back and my old NAS, all problems are over.

    So disappointed. Yes it works great as a backup storage. Yes it has great connectivity. Wanted both backup and to be able to move files over to as well. Could have bought another brand 2T wifi hard drive for less money that would allow me to back up AND store files. Why does apple make some things so difficult? Just like you cannot move photos to iCloud. People really want to save their photos in other places beside a flash drive and or on laptops.

    Great Router, Love the Extra Features.

    • Written by from Pflugerville

    I actually purchased both an Airport Express, and the Airport time Capsule, and couldn't be happier. I put the Express down stairs and the Time Capsule in my room to extend the Wi-fi network upstairs. It has worked flawlessly so far, and the speed upstairs is a big plus. Time Machine works great on my new Macbook Pro, but the biggest selling point for me was the USB port on the back of the Time Capsule. I reformated an old WD 1 Tb drive I had for my old PC and plugged it into the back of the Time Capsule. I love being able to upload files from my two Macs or my Moms PC to the drive over my Wi-fi network, It's like my households own personal Cloud. Would highly recomnmend to anyone on the market. Thumbs up Apple.

    Fastest Router I have found to date.

    • Written by from Fernley

    I I was a little skeptical about this purchase at first. I have been a Netgear and Linksys user for many years. I was using a Netgear router R6300 and thought that this was the best you could buy. I plugged in the Time Capsule and apple computer found it right away. Setup was easy which took about 5 minutes and I was back online. This doubled my speed of my wireless devices and the range covered my entire 1800sqft home. I like the fact that you do not need to have a Mac to use this and can set it up using an IPhone or IPad with Airport Utility.

    Easy to install

    • Written by from Houston

    I bought this product to improve the backup speed from a 3rd party NAS device. Since this product also had wireless routing capability, I decided to also replace my Airport Express in the hopes of seeing an improvement in range.

    What really impressed me was how easy the setup was. When I plugged the device into the network it asked me if I wanted to add it the the network as a new wireless network, extend the range of an existing network, or replace existing network. I chose to replace. It imported the configuration from my airport express, set my old airport express to default settings. None of the dozen wireless products in my home even noticed the difference. Sometimes reconfiguring a wifi enabled thermostat is a pain when you change wireless routers. In this case the device never skipped a beat.

    You get what you pay for and in this case I feel this a bargain.

    Excellent upgrade from previous generation

    • Written by from BROAD BROOK

    This is my fourth Time Capsule since they were first introduced and, so far, it is definitely the best. Significant improvement in both WiFi range and speed. Right now I am getting throughput of 450 on 802.11n with my MacBook Pro Retina 15 and right next to it am getting 850 on the new .ac standard with my new MacBook Air 11. Also the form factor and design are top-notch. The TC looks very impressive on my desk and I heartily endorse springing for the new model.

    Amazing! All wifi gripes eliminated immediately!

    • Written by from New Haven

    This little guy was an absolutely wonderful investment. All of my gripes and complaints about my wifi network (slow speed, poor range, cutting out) are gone. I can't recommend this machine enough. Plug and play- in just a few simple steps, my brand new network was ready to go, as was my Time Machine backup. A must-have for tech enthusiasts, pros, and beginners alike.

    2 Issues with Time Capsule

    • Written by from Toronto

    Actually, OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 UNDID my wireless access to backup - I now have to be connected to my Airport Time Capsule (an older version) via ethernet. So backups are not happening automatically (my only cable is old, broken tab, needs to be carefully set up) my data is at risk. Looked for help on forum, just found others with same issue. Also - have not understood how the wi-fi router in Time Capsule is supposed to work with the wireless router that brings internet into my house: my ISP people tell me that the two routers will simply "fight with each other", undermining my internet delivery. Wish I could find answers more easily about this product.
