      Difference between V1 and V2 DGND3700 Netgear

      I purchased the DGND3700 and came across this forum , advising that v1 had hardware issue, which is why v2 was released


      i wanted to know what the difference was in the version


      I have the following
      Hardware Version DGND3700
      Firmware Version V1.0.0.17_1.0.17
      GUI Language Version V1.0.0.15


      i spoke to support and they advised the only difference is the GUI and the functionality is the same and there was no reported issue with v1


      I currently have it working on my sky broadband without any issue for 2 days now, but don't really want a potential dud box in a year or so..so this was quite a costly box


      If i was to return my v1 box and purchase a v2 box, how will i know the version i am buying with out opening the box again, as i didnt see any labelling showing the version numbers.


      thanks for the advise all

      You have the DGND3700 and the latest full firmware release.

      The GUI on the v1 is much like the older familiar Netgear GUI. The v2 uses the newer Netgear Genie GUI. Otherwise specification wise they are very similar.

      pmsl - Check out the Netgear Forums.

      DGND3700 Discussion Forums - NETGEAR Forums

      There are subsequent beta versions which didn't resolve the issues I had.
