OK if you don't want wireless

Summary: If you are using this unit as a wired router it's not bad. The wireless is VERY bad. I could not get a good wireless connection to a laptop six feet away. I am sure the problem was not with the laptop because several laptops were tried. Do not buy this product or you will be disappointed.
Summary: This product did exactly what I needed it to do - it unleashed me from my office desk and allows me to work/surf on my laptop throughout my house. It was really easy to set up and was up and running within maybe 30-minutes.
Summary: I took over as an IT manager position for a small company and inherited a HWR54G router. We had a fully functional Linksys WAP11B working but I thought it would be a better idea to utilize the wireless G because of the speed.
Summary: I've had mine running for a few years now without any problems at all. Not fancy, but it works. As others suggest, don't let Windows control your networks, use the OEM software. No connection problems, no range problems, just keeps on ticking.
Summary: I purchase this wireless router after reading countless of reviews from several website. It was between the WGR614 Net Gear or this and I decided to pick this. Why? Because after reading Net Gear's customer reviews, it seemed there were more cons than pros to it although PC Magazine ranked it as one...
decent product but horrible with instant messaging
2 June 2006
Summary: This router & company gave me headaches from the start. Iit was easy to setup & connect. The main problem that I had with it was with any form of instant messaging programs (AIM, windows messenger, etc). It kept disconnecting any of these programs constantly.
Summary: I purchased the HWR54G RevM from a local store, and it worked great for a day, then the radio signal started bouncing from great to none, and after allowing it to "Rest" for a couple of hours it worked, but the radio signal then started bouncing.
Summary: Configuration and setup was not too difficult, but not the easiest I've found. The signal seems fairly week, however, and service is dropped about every half hour, even if I'm right next to the router. I then need to disable and reenable my wireless card before I can get service again.
