Brand new WNDR3700 v1 - what to do?

I need some advice. Over a year ago maybe, I asked my wife to get me a WNDR3700-100NAS router for Christmas that was on sale at Walmart. She did get it and then promptly hid it so it would be a 'surprise'. Well, it was a surprise...she hid it so well that I just stumbled upon it the other day buried in the back of a closet. My question is...what should I do with it? Now that they have come out with v's 2,3 & 4(?)...should I try to return it and get a newer version? Or should I just open her up and see what happens? I'm sure that if I had a problem Netgear would not honor a warranty at this point. Thanks for your help. Jay

If I were you, I would just open it up and use it. I have a WNDR3700 v1 and it has been working very well for me.

I have been on this forum for a while now, and a lot of posters here feel that the V1 is the best version of the 3700. So, you already have the best version of the 3700, so just use it.

Thanks...I think that's what I'm going to do.

I guess my first course of action will be to flash the latest version of the BIOS.

What do you think?

Yes, I would definitely try the latest firmware for the 3700 V1. That is the version I have been using for a long time. If you have problems, Netgear has the previous firmware versions available for download, so it is easy enough to roll back the firmware if you have to.

What I would do is take the CC away from the wife, and start going through all the Junk sitting around the house ;P....
