Summary: I used the FR114P for a couple of days before returning it. I had to reboot the router every day to re-gain connectivity to the internet. Additionally, if I disconnected my ethernet cable on any of my PCs, the print server app would continually try to connected/search for the printer server causing...

Summary: Never could hook up the printer, but it worked OK for a while until it started making erratic connection with the cable modem. Then "POP", a bad smell, and I'm out $100! Serial FR14A278A011564
Fails after 1 year (if you're lucky); BAD customer service.

Summary: My router failed after 1 year. It was then replaced by Netgear with another lemon (after hours of "home-tests" and dealing with several incompitent, rude, English-language impaired service reps).
Summary: Please read the review from WhiteHerring before you purchase. I had the same exact thing happen to mine. It works wonderfully... for a while and then fails completely. Mine lasted about the same length of time, 9 months, with all the same symptoms.
Summary: Horrible product. I "upgraded" from my Netgear RP114 to this product so I could ditch my software firewall. Well, I wish I hadn't. I get constant lockups and dropped connections on both WAN and LAN.
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.
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.
