Summary: This modem is very easy to set up using the pre-allocated network name and key. Worked first time, ans immediately three times the speed of my previous ethernet modem - 7mb/s up from 1.2. Locks on quickly from power on inlike old modem which had several goes before locking. Only 4 stars because WiFi range a bit disappointing.
Summary: I have been having problems with my BT HomeHub 2, poor WiFi range, problems with Ipad dropping off, media server would not work with PS3 and smart TV or other PCs on network. Product came within time and was well packaged. Straight forward set up, just followed the user guide. Fully working within ten minutes. I have connected a 500gb hard drive into the USB port and all PCs on the network can access this. Cant get the smart TV or PS3 to access it yet. Still trying.
Summary: I was looking for a router which would not require any fanzy set up, as I am not the most technical person. It only took 10 minutes to set up the router, as it detected that I was a BT customer straight away and asked for my ID and password for both BT and the router. The coverage seems to be fine. So I would recomend it.
Summary: This was a replacement for the BT Business Hub I was given when the ADSL circuit was put in. I've had two BT supplied 2-Wire units in two weeks, and the second one just failed: They're utterly useless. Anyway, I set up the DGN2200 to work with the BT system: Multiplex: VC-BASED VPI/VCI 0/38 DSL Mode Auto PPPoA Encapsulation and my BT Supplied login and password The Netgear on-disk setup wizard wasn't particularly brilliant.
Summary: I needed to replace my router quickly and decided to buy this router from a local store rather than from Amazon, but I thought I would review it here for the benefit of Amazon users. I have had the router installed for 24 hours, and everything seems to be working perfectly. However I need to give a word of caution for Tiscali (TalkTalk) customers. I had read elsewhere that some Tiscali users had had a problem when installing this router. Well you can add me to the list.
Summary: This is a "Work and Play" rather than a "Professional" so may have lesser range than a Pro but it still has a much better range than the Netgear "RangeMax" antennaless routers and range extenders, which can barely manage 20 yards line-of-sight in my experience. Its only 300Mbps so not a gigabit router locally but it does have the full Netgear firewall as on the old DG834 and VPN support via a nice browser-based interface.
