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. Recently, after a few months of ok service, it suddenly gave me horrible service on my g network. My N network was completely fine.
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!) + No external antennas to interfere when messing with cables, or if it goes all bad, breaks off due to accidents. + Initial setup is easy.
Excerpt: Bought the router recertified from Newegg, great price but did not get a lot out of it. Received the router and setup was a jiff , had to update firmware to the latest and started to use it. It worked fine but then its starts to drop connection. I have tried different setup to see if it will go away but not so. And it started to drop connection so frequently that i had tostop using and switch to another router instead.
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!
