Utterly disappointing.

Lorenzo V., Newegg
4 October 2011
  • Summary: The last netgear product I will buy.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, works as a hard-wired router.
  • Cons: Another word for inexpensive is "cheap" and this is what this product is. The wireless signal just flat out does not work half the time, so it's best used as wired with an extra long cord and toss a floor mat over it so people won't trip.

Dead after One Year

Anonymous, Newegg
3 July 2011
  • Summary: Definitely NOT recommended if you play games online or heavily transfer files with friends and family. This was my first Netgear product and will probably be my last.
  • Pros: I paid $40 for this as recertified back in May 2010.
  • Cons: Constantly dropped wired connections. Wireless range was small and easily interrupted by walls.

Junk!

Dean, Amazon
23 December 2010
  • Summary: The Good: This router was easy to set up, it only took about 15 minutes to start up and configure. When this router was operating, it had excellent range and speed. The Irritating: AT LEAST twice weekly the router would crash, and would require a reboot cycle which also involved restarting the...

N No Good

DW9, Amazon
3 November 2010
  • Summary: I am a long time fan of Netgear products. Unfortunately, that might change with this product. Router was very easy to set up as older models (did I mention this was probably the 5th Netgear router I have purchased, not to mention recommended to friends and family).

OK while it worked

Chris M., Newegg
19 October 2010
  • Summary: Cheap is cheap and you get what you pay for. Though from most reviews all routers and most electronics seem 2B a crapshoot. But if you see the same model being sold (recertified) by the truckload on every site, it tells you something bout that model.
  • Pros: Was on sale for $35. The ethernet ports worked decently well. Only tried wireless with G band card in pc which sucked for gaming so can't really comment on that part. Makes a nice night light now.
  • Cons: Died at 8 months usage. 2 eggs for effort.

Netgear could have done better

Duane H., Newegg
12 October 2010
  • Summary: I got this on a shell shocker, and it wasn't worth more than I paid.
  • Pros: Dual Band and 5GHz connection. After switching firmware to DD-WRT, I had full control over the router and settings. Wireless-N worked great and had good range on first band-signal.
  • Cons: Second band-signal would stop intermittently and the range was much more limited for some reason. Occasionally, signal would be lost completely and required power cycle to fix. After 6 months, the router just quit altogether and won't even light up anymore. Netgear refuses to support past 30 days.

User Review

Jason G., Newegg
7 June 2010
  • Summary: Spend a few bucks more for quality.
  • Pros: Dual band. Pretty easy to setup.
  • Cons: Cannot hold a steady connection. I bought this router to stream HD content to my TV over 802.11n. Unfortunately the router signal is not consistent and my TV is only 8 feet away. The signal slows to a crawl or gets dropped completely every 20 minutes or so.

Directly Misleading Product

Brian V., Newegg
24 April 2010
  • Summary: My WRT54G was able to get 3 bars through a number of walls to a N wireless capable laptop about 60 feet away (one being concrete) without any modification to the transmitting power. This seems to get 2-3 with N wireless (2.4 GHz) in the same locations for transmitting and receiving.
  • Pros: It looks sort of nice with the black and (sort of) silver. The lights are an interesting (yet annoying) touch. Lights can be turned off so if you don't like it you don't have to live with it. Wired speeds are what I expected for such a cheap N router, buying refurbished wasn't too bad a choice si...
  • Cons: This product in itself is a lie. I define Dual Band as a router that can do both at the same time. This isn't some random definition I am throwing you right now, this is textbook definition of a dual band router. Its inability to run at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz N at the same time is extremely disappoint...
