WNDR4000 N750 Model Replacement On the Way in the WNDR4300...

Netgear will be releasing the Netgear N750 WNDR4300 router in the near future. It will be replacing the WNDR4000 unit as Netgear’s N750 router in the lineup. I am not sure if the WNDR4300 will carry the “limited lifetime warranty” in the USA as the WNDR4000 did.

The new N750 router will be powered by Atheros chip, which I think is a plus over the Broadcom chip used in the WNDR4000. The 2.4Ghz radio are U.FL connected & have new Netgear-silkscreened branded antennas. The 5Ghz radio uses Rayspan brand antennas. The most recent “High Performance” routers based on Atheros chips from Netgear have used printed on board antennas for the 2.4Ghz radio.

That is all I have for now folks. Just thought I would give all of you a heads up.

The successor to the N750 Broadcom-based WNDR4000 will be shipping out to retailers starting on 8/29/12. The new N750 WNDR4300 (UPC# 606449084528) is based on fourth-generation wireless-N Atheros chips and is listed on BestBuy.com now for $129.99. Expect other retailers (Staples, Amazon, etc) to have the WNDR4300 listed either this Sunday or next online when they apply updates to product selection.

So if you just picked up a WNDR4000 and want a N750 router, my suggestion is to return the WNDR4000 and get your hands on this unit instead.

I am not sure yet if the WNDR4300 will have the same limited lifetime hardware warranty as the WNDR4000 has.

i might have to pick this up, i installed a linksys 4300 in my living room to centralize the 2.4 ghz band and provide extra coverage for the 5ghz band. until recently the 4300 consistently bonded with both channels on the 2.4ghz band but it seems that it's dropping to 1 channel now since there are some faint legacy networks it's seeing. i've done some reading this morning and i'm hopeful that the information i've read stating that the atheros chipsets seem to be less likely to scale back N bonding when in the presence of faint legacy networks. my local bestbuy says it has these in stock already so i'll pick one up and replace the 4300 access point in my LR with this router and see if it does solve my bonding woes.

I preordered mine by calling Staples catalog up as it is not on their site yet. They have it for $119.99. Netgear just posted the product page for the WNDR4300. I am glad to see that it has 128MB of RAM. I was afraid that it would only have 64MB. The chipset from Atheros is spec'ed from what I have read about it at 600MHz and a 74K MIPS design.

Atheros-chipsets means not dd-wrt compitable, am I right?

Not exactly. WNDR3700v1, WNDR3700v2, WNDR3800, WNDR37AVv1, WNDR37AVv2, WNDRMACv1, WNDRMACv2 are just some of the Atheros-chipped routers from Netgear that work with dd-wrt.
