Why is my 5GHz signal strength of DGND4000 lower than 2.4GHz?
This is normal. The 5GHz radio coverage is less than 2.4GHz because of its physical characteristics. However, less people use 5GHz wireless devices, the interference is less than 2.4GHz. If you run delay sensitive applications like video or voice, we encourage you run it in 5GHz.

Before you install your NETGEAR N750 wireless gigabit router, make sure that the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Property settings on your computer are set to “automatically obtain an IP address” using DHCP and “Obtain DNS server address automatically.” You can check these settings by looking at the TCP/IP Properties of your Internal Network Connections, which are accessible through the Control Panel of your computer.

If you are replacing an existing router, disconnect it completely from your network and set it aside before starting to install your new router.

There are two steps to setting up your NETGEAR N750 wireless gigabit router:

1. Connect the router to the ADSL or cable modem, and connect a computer to the router.
2. Configure the router to use your Internet service.

To connect your N750 wireless gigabit router:

1. Connect the N750 wireless gigabit router, the computer, and the modem.

a. Turn off your computer.
b. Turn off and unplug the cable or ADSL broadband modem. If your modem has a backup battery, remove it as well.
c. Locate the Ethernet cable (1) that connects your computer to the modem.


2. Disconnect the cable from the modem (2). You will connect it to the netgear router later.

3. Locate the Ethernet cable that came with the NETGEAR product. Securely insert that Ethernet cable into your modem and into the Internet port of the N750 wireless gigabit router (3).


4. Locate the cable you removed from the modem in step 2. Securely insert that cable (4) into a LAN port on the router such as LAN port 1.


Your network cables are connected, and you are ready to start your network. It is important that you start your network in the correct sequence.

To start your network in the correct sequence

1. First, plug in and turn on the cable or DSL modem (if your modem has a backup battery, plug it back in). Wait 2 minutes.

2. Now, plug the power cord into your NETGEAR N750 wireless gigabit router and into a power outlet. Wait 1 minute.

3. Last, turn on your computer. It might take several minutes for your router to establish a connection with your computer and your Internet provider.

For DSL customers, if software logs you in to the Internet, do not run that software. You might need to go to the Internet Explorer Tools menu, select Internet Options, and then click the Connections tab, where you can select Never dial a connection.

The Netgear Gigabit Router WNDR4000 Reviews

The good: The Netgear N750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router (WNDR4000) supports the new 450Mbps standard on the 5GHz band, and offers true dual-band, decent wireless performance, and other advanced networking features, such as guest networking, network storage, and Live Parental Controls, for a comparatively affordable price.

The bad: The Netgear WNDR4000’s 2.4GHz wireless throughput degrades a great deal as range increases. The performance of the network storage feature could also use some improvement.

The bottom line: The Netgear WNDR4000 makes a very good wireless router for home use, especially with Wi-Fi clients that support the 5GHz band.

User Reviews

1.”Works great!”

by geebee9665

Pros: Design,user interface options,true dual band usage.

Cons: Range is not that great!

Summary: Great Wireless router. I’ve had mine for over 4 months now. No dropped signals, great dual band streaming (video and audio) Netflix…etc. Setup was a breeze. System monitoring is a nice to have option. It’s worth the bucks!

2.”Happy with it”

by DaveJMo

Pros: Has been extremely reliable for me. Sufficient for size of my apartment. The ReadyShare has performed well for me too.

Cons: My PS3 can’t pick up all my media on my drive attached to the USB over DLNA. Not a big deal since it seems silly to have a large plasma on in order to listen to music through a PS3.

3.”Terrible Range, speed drops exponentially with distance”

by smedici

Pros: wireless and wired performance is great next to the router.

Cons: I replaced an old belkin because I wanted a dual band and “whole house good signal”. The only place I can get a good signal is in the room with the router, 15 feet away I barely get a signal and it keeps dropping the connection. I worked with tech support

Summary: I will replace the N750 WNDR4000 once I find one that actually delivers on its specs.
