Summary: We actually bought this modem+router from Radioshack, but I thought I'd do a review here for interested customers. This products has several features that we really like: It is compact and combines two separate devices into one unit, is very easy to set up, and works great with our wireless devices. I'm not sure what was wrong with the previous reviewers router...we have no issues with the wireless signal range.
Summary: This is possibly the worst gateway you could ever purchase. Save yourself time headaches and mental anguish not to mention countless hours on the phone with netgear's very unhelpful customer service. This router/gateway would only work properly if I was within a 10ft radius of it and this is in all seriousness. Anyone that requests tech logs of what I had to go through with netgear is free to have it and see just how much they care about the customer's experience.
It didn't work right. Kept cutting off internet & rebooting.
18 June 2014
Summary: It didn't work right. It kept cutting off -sometimes after only a minute or two, sometimes it ran for a few hours before crashing. Rather than waste more money to send it back, I just dropped it in the trash. I think this one had a broken wire inside, since it sometimes cut off & rebooted if I moved it. And No, it's not the wiring, because I can plug in my old modem and it works fine and does not cut off. (My old modem does not let me plug in a second computer, though.
Summary: Netgear always seams to work well for me which seams to be the same case with this little DSL wireless modem. Simple to set up and appears to work well.....only time will tell. Wanted something a little faster than the old ATT 2Wire DSL wireless modem.
Summary: I bought this through groupon for $15 one year ago for use with Centurylink at speed of 7-20/MBs, and it has given me a consistently good connection. I use the wireless component for netflix streaming on TV, but not for any laptops. The modem is hooked up directly to the desktop computer. I see there are a lot of poor reviews, but I've had no trouble.
