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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Summary: Excellent product. Perfect for the home or small office. I've been using this router for over a year and it works perfectly. I've recommended this product to several clients and none have reported the hardware failures that others have posted about. The print server is a very nice bonus.
Summary: Being the paranoid type when it comes to computing security, this box is a good step for novice and expert alike. It's an affordable gateway that provide 85% of any security you'd ever need for even the most paranoid, and on 1 Mbps DSL I have observed no negative performance drain running with 2...
Summary: This was even easier to setup than I had anticpated. I have a Win 98SE desktop and an XP desktop, both went online with no problem. The print server worked just fine after installing the print server software on both machines.
