How to initiate the RMA process for Wireless Routers

Hello,

 

I would like some help with the RMA process.

I still have a router under hardware warranty that has started to fail on me. I have tried all the support items and nothing solves it.

 

Every single time I started a support request, they shut it down simply stating that they recommend I purchase their GearHead Premium Services. 

I explicitly requested RMA process information.

 

What has happened to the awesome Netgear support? It doesn't even seem that whoever responds to the tickets reads the actual customer request.

 

Thanks for any help.

I requested an RMA also see below, I clearly did not ask for support!  I am concerned that they can't or don't want to read and understand basic English!

WAN Port stopped functioning today, performed a loop back test as shown on this site and it does not show connected. I placed my old Netgear WNDR3700 in its place and it functions correctly request an RMA!

That is fine. He tried to call this morning but it is a private number so it was blocked. He did not leave a number to call back.

Re: How to initiate the RMA process for Wireless Routers

I am really not being picky, I received the replacement one and tried to register it online, and it says already registered.  I assume I am not supposed to register the replacement, since it is refurbished from someone else?  It is working well so far. Thank you.
