Summary: I had an old USB hard drive that I wanted to share for music. This router has a USB port and ready share ability that easily solved this problem for £29 rather than going out and buying a new drive for over £100. The drive is now shared around the house for all my music and photos. It is hooked up to a Viirgin Superhub that I have put into modem mode. This has greatly improved the speed and reliability odour wi-fi signal around the house.
Summary: I know next to nothing about setting up broadband systems, so maybe I got a bit lucky. My existing Netgear DGN2200 has to be positioned downstairs due to the adsl socket location, consequently my wifi signal throughout the upper two stories, while usable, doesn't show full signal strength.
Summary: After my last wireless router stopped working I bought this as a replacement to attach after my Virgin Modem. fitting was quick and easy. I was able to connect fairly easily although I did have to refer to the included instructions. connecting other devices was also simple, this includes my home storage server. there is only one bug bare with this device. as is popular with many devices nowadays, it feels the need to have bright lights to let you know all is well.
Summary: I use Windows Home Server 2011 and it's Remote Web Access function. I previously used the ADSL version of this router (DGN2200) which is possibly the best router I have ever used. Together, they worked in harmony to enable the WHS Remote Web Access service via UPnP on the router. I recently upgraded to BT Infinity fibre broadband and the DGN2200 can no longer be used.
Summary: My old cable router, another 8 year old veteran started to die and decided to get another. This was simplicity itself to install and within 30 minutes I had my laptop, tablet, Freeview PVR and Sony Blue Ray DVD player connected and running (the latter two are wired). After accessing the latest firmware was loaded and installed. The Netgear Genie software is superb and has pretty much all the tools you will ever need.
Summary: I recently switched to Fibre Optic broadband, and while my old modem (an excellent and reliable Linksys) did work with the new account, it was also hardware never meant to cope with FO speeds. Formerly, I was lucky to get 3Mbps on a good day, and now it's around 38Mbps. The Linksys was not only getting hot, but also knocked 10Mbps off my maximum line speed. So, I searched around, and found a deal for the doing on this Netgear model.
Summary: I was needlessly nervous about setting up wireless having had nightmares with older routers in the early wifi days and having only basic technical knowledge but this was a breeze - virtually plug and play meant I was up and running within a few minutes without having to use a cd.
Summary: I have always liked Netgear products, and the WNR2200 is no exception. The build quality is very good, the product looks neat and tidy, and it works perfectly well. The web management pages in particular are very slick, and the documentation is well laid out. However, there are a few minor criticisms, particularly compared to my old DG834 ADSL router: 1) Boot time - the WNR2200 takes ages to boot, around 1.5 minutes, and far slower than my Linux PC (and even my Windows...
