Struggling to find a router that would give total coverage in our 3 story house, when the network connection is in the roof is a struggle. The Netgear WNDR 4500 come the closest to being perfect, though there are still some transitory black spots in our challenging home. This is my 5th router and it goes farther than any of the others. It was very much plug and play - very simple to set up. The Netgear WNDR 4500 has a useful downloadable utility to called Netgear Genie. Netgear Genie allows configuration of the router either via the desktop or remotely via an app for ipad, ipod, iphone, android, etc. A particular benefit of the Netgear Genie is the ability to be able to see all the connections - a great tool.
