have you ever heard of overlapping channels? because of guides like this my 'smart' neighbors are choosing random 802.11 channel numbers, instead of standard 1,6 and 11 and ruin the wireless spectrum for people who really know what they are doing

In order to get the optimum performance in either 802.11n or g, you will need to configure the wireless mode and channel of your WNR3500L a certain way - depending on the mode your client (i.e., laptop, netbook, mobile phone, MID, PDA, etc.) Follow the instructions below to maximize the performance of your router, and don't forget to post if you have any questions!
Selection of Wireless Mode:
The selection of wireless mode on the AP side, i.e., on the router itself, depends on the wireless client being used. If the wireless client supports 802.11n mode, then you should select wireless mode as “Up to 300 Mbps." If your wireless client does not support 802.11n and it only supports 802.11g mode, then on WNR3500L you should select wireless mode as “Upto 54Mbps."
Selection of Channel:
You should select a channel for the WNR3500L AP that is different than that of other AP's in the near vicinity.

Given below is the summary of the method that I used to get optimum performance from WNR3500L and measure it.
Wireless client: NETGEAR WN111v2
Access Point: NETGEAR WNR3500L
Performance measurement tool: iperf
NETGEAR WN111v2 is used as an iperf client and the iperf server is running at host connected to LAN interface of the WNR3500L through wired connection. As mentioned above I select wireless mode to “Upto 300Mbps” for 802.11n. To get optimum performance iperf the window size at both the server and the client should be kept at 256 Kbytes.
With this setting, 802.11n performance has been tabulated below:
In 802.11g mode, I select wireless mode to “Upto 54Mbps." With this setting, 802.11g performance has been tabulated below:
I just installed the WNR3500L & it is working fine on the laptops, but the wireless printer is not connecting. Can anyone help me??
I had the same issue with my Canon, solved it by connecting up the printer via USB port and (re)running the standard wireless printer setup utility again.

I have a Fritzbox at the moment and was looking to upgrade, the only feature I really want is to be able to switch off the wireless overnight. On the Fritzbox, I have a configurable option in the web interface that lets me switch off the wireless between two times, I use 11.30pm and 7am. Does this netgear have this ability, if not, does anyone know of one that does.
It is working fine, but I have a Windows XP on my PC and I have a problem to transfer on the wireless network some files that OS won't let me access them because the exe file extension is used by a device. I really don't understand what to do, maybe I do something wrong, but I don't know what. My virtual machine is popping out some very weird errors, I will reinstall all the software on the computer and I hope my problems with the files will disappear.
