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: Works well. Pumps out a signal that gives reasonable access all over a two-storey Queenslander with wooden floors. My old HP laptop connects at 144Mbs at 3 metres from the modem. I use and recommend a WN3000RP to extend N300 signal at 10 metres away from modem.
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.
