Firmware Update Fixes Annoying Drop-outs! Finally!!

MariaSmiles, Amazon
19 May 2010
  • Summary: 2011 UPDATE: Well, it's been almost two years that I've owned this router and have been dealing with it's "issues". Every time I seem ready to move on and swap it for something trouble-free (relatively), it seems to behave, like it knows it's going to be replaced.

Infuriating Disco Ball

S.J., Amazon
9 March 2010
  • Summary: I've owned this router for about a year and it has performed well for me. My main computer is wired so I wouldn't notice every wireless glitch but when I have been wireless, it seems to work reasonably well.

Mixed experiences

Peter Bjørn Perlsø, Amazon
9 January 2009
  • Summary: As a years-long Netgear customer I went with this router: Good stuff: + Nice look, sleek black and silver design and varied LED colouring as a positive difference to fx. D-link's boring breadbox look with all-blue LEDs (trust me, all-blue indicators gets annoying after a while!

OK standalone product but can't handle a range extender

Allan Mustard, Amazon
9 January 2009
  • Summary: This Netgear router worked fine with clients connected directly to it -- setup was easy and the range was fine within our 1000 sq ft apartment -- but it would not reach the rooftop, where my home office is located. I installed a Hawking 300N wireless range extender, and began to uncover problems.

Lousy range & lousy stock firmware. But you can flash it with DD-WRT, and if you use it as a BRIDGE it's excellent.

David Pearlman, Amazon
9 January 2009
  • Summary: Let's state this in plain English up front: Out of the box, this router is THE PITS. The stock firmware is lousy and the range and throughput are lousy. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of flashing the router to non-stock third party firmware, stop reading here and find another router, because...

Nice but not perfect

I.Peters, Amazon
26 May 2008
  • Summary: Presently we use a Linksys WRT54G 802.11G wireless router so when we got the Netgear box I was jazzed. I really hadn't heard much about Wireless-N but since it promises speeds that are up to 15X faster than Wireless-G with up to 10x more coverage, I had to try it.

Not as described

Grumpy, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Was not 'new, bought in error' as described. Received unboxed, only had a mains adapter and was well used. I have since bought a refurbished one from Netgear complete with everything that should accompany it for less than I paid for this one. I will not purchase from a private seller again!

  • Summary: When you look at the technical details for this product, please note that it is just an Ethernet Router.... that is, it connects network devices together that use the Ethernet Protocol.

So-so

goldenboy_phil, Amazon
2 December 2008
  • Summary: Our old Netgear router (about 4 years old) packed up recently so I bought this partly on the basis of looks and partly on the basis of price (it was about the price I was looking to pay). I assumed that as technology moves on it would be a lot better.
