So, my NETGEAR WNDR3700 WIRELESS ROUTER has failed. Working one day - Dying the next. This is the second WNDR3700 Router that has failed for me, with the same problem. The first one failed within a few months of ownership and was replaced by Netgear. This second (replacement) unit is now 3 years old and has failed of the same thing. At three years old, hardware failure for these is not shockingly rare but I was still hoping for Netgear to step up and fix/replace what seems like a design fault. I know I was hoping for too much... so far this is what has happened:
I logged into the support system and it shows me (to my delight) that the hardware warranty on my WNDR3700 goes thru to July 2015. YAY!
Then I notice that their support system is showing that this unit, was purchased this year. AAARGH!
Obviously a problem with the Netgear support and warranty system - but as it is showing that the unit is under warranty lets see if Netgear will honor it:
So, lets raise a support issue:
