Firewall/Router work fine - Print Server a project

Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: The router & firewall functionality of the FR114P are fine. Print server took hours of effort with varying error messages but no printing. Netgear offered to send me a new box for $15. Charge even though I am well within the warrantee period.

GREAT PRODUCT

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: Based on the previous reviews, I decided to give this product a try. After trying several similiar devices, I was about ready to give up on the whole concept. I had Netgear's product up and running in 30 minutes, which included 5 minutes of technical support.

No Brainer Installation

Joe Bruce, Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: I read the other reviews here with some dismay before I bought this unit. I decided to go ahead with the purchase because I had spent a lot of time researching router/switch combos with print server capability and true SPI firewall capability.

Extremely simple, yet powerful for the techie...

  • Summary: I looked at over 10 different cable/DSL routers and decided on the Netgear FR114P based on features, price, and reviews (and past bad experiences with LinkSys.) Being a Network Engineer, this puppy was a no brainer to setup. Now I have port forwarding setup and Dynamic DNS working like a charm!

Great product ... for a while

White Herring, Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: For about 9 months this has been a great firewall/print server/router switch. Very fast and easy to set up via a web browser. Newer firmware features really enhance this product. However, beware of hardware failure in time.

A Great Product and Easy To Set Up

Therese M. Woolley, Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: I have three computers in my home, two of which I built myself. I needed a way to share my internet connection, share files between each machine and share a printer. I had a D-Link router that worked just fine but I had to have my main computer up and running to print. I didn't like that at all.

Disappointing... not for gamers.

B. Gilmore, Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: As a previous owner of Netgear RP114 router, it was only natural to upgrade to the FR114p. I wanted a router for the following reasons: 1) to network my family's computers, 2) to provide security for my network, 3) to play games, 4) print server.

A pleasure to use for 2 years now, but it's getting old

J. Klebba, Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: It runs well right out of the box, has a friendly online menu and is fairly speedy. Matter of fact, when a family member got a laptop I replaced it with a Netgear WGT624SC wireless router, but the slowdown in throughput was so severe that I put the FR114P back on as the router and used the wireless...

FR114P - Excellent!

Phil, Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: This router rocks. Setup was as easy as any other router I've used.... I have SWBell PPPOE DSL and after typing in my name and password, it worked right away. I have a 1996 HP 820Cse printer, and it works perfectly with the printer port - even turning itself on when a job comes from the router.

Not The Router For You

Kenny G, Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: This is one of Netgear's newest and worst models. It's ability to configure rules leaves much to be desired. Although advertising states otherwise, their technical department, are at a loss for words (or answers). Which brings to fact a second point.
