Excerpt: I bought the netgear WGT624 router when I upgraded to broadband from my telephone provider . I chose the 2nd slowest speed they offered , sonce I do any actual work on my computer . The phone guy came and changed a few things at the phone jack . I had the wireless router up and running shortly after . I have been using it for a couple years now .

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. I do know my basic home networking especially when my job requires me to install one certain brand router. Since then, that router is no longer available, I had to move on to different kind of router. With a videophone, this is very important to me and my family to be able to communicate with familes that are far away.
The Netgear Wireless G router is fast and simple to set up.

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. You also can get this model of router at faster speeds for a little more money, but I would go with this unit to run up to 4 or more computers and still give you great speed on each.
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: Let me begin by saying that I don't have much to compare this against. So, it is not like I can say that this router is better than others. However, it came with a lot of instructions and even years later when I got a new wireless laptop and that needed to be configured I was able to figure out what to do without a problem. I have had this router for more years than I can remember at this point and I am very happy with it.
Summary: I needed this router to do a wireless bridge with existing router. So far so good. There is a fundamental problem with this line of routers that once in wireless bridge mode, the repeater does not let devices to connect to it properly. But the setup works for me for the devices that I need to plug in using Ethernet cable.
