Summary: Very disappointed. The unit arrived "scrambled". Factory reset made no difference. A dishonest man would try and resell it (like the vendor in this case). But I'm throwing this in the bin where it belongs...
Summary: Ordered one of these routers to replace an older Netgear router which had developed a fault after several years good service. The first unit was fine apart from a problem setting a password on the Guest account.
Summary: Bought this in Currys when it was on offer, now I can see why. After 7 years of using my old Netgear DG834GT (54g) router, I upgraded my computers recently and wanted to take advantage of the N speeds of newer routers, so having had great reliability with my old Netgear I decided to stick with the...
Summary: I wanted to replace a fully functional but ageing Netgear DG834 with a newer unit, supposedly faster and with a USB port for shared storage. I bought from In2Digital, new name to me, supplied promptly. I connected using Ethernet to my Apple MacBook Pro.
Summary: Bought this a a replacement for an ageing dg834 which was becoming slow and unreliable. Bought netgear in the past and hoped for more of the same. Worked well for a few months then could not connect to ISP. It had auto detected connection and came back with a strange setting for adsl of pppoe.
Summary: I do not know how well this product works, but the package contains an ADSL filter that does not fit the UK system. I am now in touch with Happiness At Home Ltd to see what they will do about it.
Summary: This was NOT easy to set up for us. Having tried to install it via the cd that came with it, a computer designer friend, whom we had to pay, got nowhere. In the end we got the Geek Squad who also appeared to run into problems but were able to eventually install it manually.
Summary: I ordered 3 of these and have used netgear for the last 5-6 years and have always found them easy to work. 2 of these 3 I could not get to work even after speaking to Netgear support of which the phone number is hard to find 0844 875 4000.
Excerpt: Wireless signal constantly dropping out, modem freezes up atleast once a fortnight when all ports are in use. Please note this is NOT a gigabit router it is only capable of up to 300mbs wireless signal and 10/100 LAN
WORST PRODUCT AND WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM NETGEAR. NEVER BUY THIS ROUTER.TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.
7 February 2011
Summary: This is the WORST ROUTER. I bought it for Netgear's name and it does serve the purpose of a good range but it has a MAJOR FAULT, it keeps getting disconnected after every 5-10 minutes. I confirmed with my internet provider and they confirmed that there's no problem with the line.
