Summary: I bought this netgear and it was the exact same as the one Time Warner was charging me to rent and I haven't had any problems. Just can't seem to reset the password for the wifi. It keeps reseting to the one that's already set.
Summary: I have used this Netgear WGT624NA router for several years without incident. Only recently has the device required occasionally cold rebooting due to non-responsiveness, otherwise it has worked well, is easily setup and managed.
Summary: Quick note to all of you having disconnects with the WiFi side of things. Ever go into WAN and check out the setting for "Connect Automatically, as Required"? I disabled that immediately upon setting up my network as though recommended and on by default, the description alone says that it will...
Pros: Solid router with a fairly easy to use/setup interface. It has been very reliable.
Cons: Lacking proper documentation, information and settings seem to be tucked away on too many screens.
Summary: Overall good product, wish it wasn't more intrusive than the mothership from Close Encounters.
Pros: Extremely stable and provides a strong and reliable signal. Easy to set-up, even on Vista 64 bit.
Cons: This may seem like a petty Con, but if you owned one you'd understand. This thing gives off more light than any of my PC hardware. The plastic case has a ton of openings and holes around it so the constantly flickering lights on the front radiate 360 degrees. If you have this anywhere near a slee...

Summary: Installing my wireless router and WG311T card was anything but simple. However if you follow their instructions explicitly and do everything correctly you will be very pleased with this product. I'm giving it 4 stars because I encountered a very serious error with my Trend Micro Internet Security.
Summary: I turned off some of the extra stuff that can cause problems, like the expanded range thing for the wireless and I set up a secure network so that all my settings make the router do minimal work except for internet connection.
Pros: It works fine, I don't have to reset it, nor do I have any other connection issues. I can turn off my modem or unplug any cables and plug them back in without having to restart the router.
Cons: I don't use the wireless myself but when my mother visited she was telling me that every few minutes she had to quit IE and restart it on her laptop. She may have just had to refresh the page to fix this issue, but she was 30 feet away and getting interrupted signal.
Summary: Still does these problems even with the most up todate firmwares updated manually from the website (this model netgear is too old to pick up the auto detect because of the many different hardware versions out) Was switting to D-link because of the problems this router gave me.
Pros: I got a Version 2, bought it over 4 years ago or so from Newegg and finally writing a review. It has lasted a long long time, and I let my neighbors use it while i look for a new router to buy.. (probly end up with netgear again because i dislike Linksys)
Cons: Will cut off during intense p2p downloads over wireless connection, over time (for example over night)and the router will need to be resetted for the wireless to work again. Not sure about this one problem, but the wireless connection would go bad and require restarting if the wireless connection...
