Summary: The WGT624 is a solid working wireless-G router with all the standard features, but many people are misled about some of it's features.. the router is capable of wireless rates upto 108mbps.. but only if you use a Netgear 108mbps adapter card on your computer. the 108MBPS speeds also only work on wireless channel 6, which is a commonly used 'default' channel for wireless, and usually swamped with interferance because of this..
With the firmware update, the router was excellent

Excerpt: I bought this wireless router from Staples for only $19.99 on a black friday of 2006. It was excellent for its price. It included a wireless card that i can plug in my laptop that didn't have built in wireless. The wireless router had a claimed speed of 108 Mbps and support wireless B and G or Super G mode of 108 Mbps at only one channel (channel 6).
Excerpt: This NetGear WGT624 Wireless router is great for home networking. I have used this for 8 months now. I am a moderate techie, I will be honest here.

Excerpt: The netgear WGT624 Router is a great product and should be used by anyone wanting a wireless network. This is one easy and fast setup if your looking for a quick and easy network for the home or home office. You will have fast speed up to 108kbps that helps with uploads and downloads.

Excerpt: This is a good router when it works. Easy to setup, easy to do everything else. My first one failed at 6 months. My second one failed at 6 months. My third one failed at 6 months. My new router is a different brand & model and is not as easy but I haven't had to touch it in over a year. My routers are always on so I don't know if the heat got to this or not. I only paid $25 for them; I could've had one for less than $75 that was still working though.
Excerpt: I've been using this modem for over 3 years now and have never had a single problem. I use it both wired, direct to my main PC, and wirelessly to my laptop and the media center PC.It has everything you could possibly need, including 108Mbps transfer speed over wireless network, both USB and LAN connections, 4 wired outputs, and was a bargain to boot, compared to competitor products. If it is still available I would recommend it to anyone, and if not, I'm sure that...
