DHCP stalls

  • Summary: I upgraded my home net with several pieces of Netgear hardware, including the FR114P router, the WG102 Wifi Access Point, and the FS108P, an 8-port switch with 4 Power Over Ethernet (POE) ports. The AP and the POE switch have been excellent choices. Not so with the router. Although it has features you don't find in a lot of consumer routers, like stateful packet inspection (SPI), logging, and email alerts, it just kept dropping connections to my home PCs for no apparent...

similar to others -- good for a while, but ...

  • Summary: I, like many other reviewers, found the router to work as advertised, mostly. like others, I never was able to get the printserver to work with my Lexmark 3200. But I mainly bought this item for its router/firewall capabilities. as with others, the unit worked fine for nearly 18 months. now, I have to power cycle the thing nearly every time I boot my pc's in order to get an internet connection. and it randomly looses the internet connection with my cable modem.

Print Server is useless

Brad M., Amazon

  • Summary: The firewall/router portion of the FR114P is great and easy to set up, but the print server is useless! I have a Canon i850 on Windows XP, and it drags the print speed down so low that you want to cry. While printing graphics it literally pauses for a second or two after each pass of the print head.

Disappointing... not for gamers.

  • 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. While the basic functionality of the router works as advertised, there are major issues with port forwarding for games and the print server. Simply put, port forwarding does not work.

  • Summary: I have been using RT314 for over a year, and it's great! A few days ago, I saw FR114P at Fry's. I think it's about time to have a wired router/firewall/printer server product for around [hundred dollars]. I bought it, but I never got the printer server to work. I was on the phone with a tech support and a 2nd level senior tech support for over an hour. we've tried everything, nothing worked.
