  • Summary: No power supply for the other units were included. Not a problem, but it should have stated that on the auction description.

OK But Better Routers Are Available

Siffert, Amazon
19 August 2008
  • Summary: Netgear routers have been generally their weakest and less reliable product, unlike their switches and hubs. I used to use Netgear RT338 ISDN routers and they lasted less than 2 years before going bad. I find the FR114P lasts about 3-4 years in our office before getting DNS, reboots and other errors. They do work great though when running without problems. We just keep a few of them as backups and then reflash them with the lastest upgrades off the Netgear site.

Easy to use and reliable

  • Summary: Our FR114P was damaged by a lightening surge, and Netgear replaced it under warranty. I surge-protected the second one and we have used it for several years. This is a reliable unit and very easy to use. I have recommended it to friends, who were equally pleased. I also bought several for our portable LANs at work, and those have functioned beautifully, too.

There's got to be a more rigorous unit on the market...

S. Smith "Quality counts", Amazon
1 January 2007
  • Summary: My first unit was defective. The second unit works well. This firewall works like a charm & has enough configs to make it a great solution. It turns out to be highly suspect to a little bit of extra electricity. Make sure you have it on a top quality surge protector. PS: Kudos to Amazon. After getting an RMA for the first unit from Netgear, Amazon actually shipped me a new one before they got the defective unit back. All at no charge to me (no shipping etc...).

Just plug it in and it works

Christopher P. Becker, Amazon
6 December 2006
  • Summary: Finally! Something high-tech that basically installs itself. No hassle. No user-hostile experience. Why did I buy this? I had two LinkSys routers at home over three years and finally got fed up! With any network hiccup, I'd have to reboot the LinkSys routers and sometimes re-install the configuration software. I tried another router with the same user-hostile experience. I bought this product -- the Netgear FR114P -- based on reviews.

Totally Reliable

RGPaudio, Amazon
31 May 2006
  • Summary: This router has worked great for the past year. We have 3 Linux computers connected to DSL through it. One PC is at the far end of the house. We use two Novatech Powerline Ethernet Adapters to connect that PC to the Netgear router through our home powerline wiring. Netgear and Novatech work fine together, with no DSL speed degredation. The browser interface is easy to use. The firewall features are easy enough for the inexpert user to understand.

Has worked well for me for 3 years

A. Lindeman, Amazon
9 December 2005
  • Summary: This product works as it should. I run a linux server off of my cable modem. Over the last few years I've tried using multiple consumer priced wireless routers, but they all (3 of them!) had lock-up issues or slowness. Each time I ended up going back to my FR114P for routing. I now have a complete "Netgear blue box" solution- the FR114P wired router with the WG102 wireless access point connected to it. I also have a Netgear GS108 gigabit switch.
