Excerpt: I've installed several Netgear routers before, and they were all fairly easy to install. This one was awful. I was able to install it with the help of a computer guy, but would never have been able to install it on my own. I hope it operates better than it installed!
Excerpt: I installed this Modem/Router at two different locations. The first location I experienced intermittent drops in connection. The drops didn't happen too often, but if your playing online games (and hard core at that) you really don't want ANY drops.
Excerpt: Wasn't the easiest installation. DSL line filter provided by manufacturer blocked throughput from my ISP. Over an hour of tech. support needed to figure out modem wasn't compatible with McAfee firewall during installation but problem resolved. Works well after install finally completed.
Pros: Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Secure Connection
Excerpt: Bought this because our AT&T 2wire died-took hours and hours to get it to work. Net gear's own customer service people couldn't figure it out. We wanted to get away from AT&T, but we should have stuck with the 2wire modem/router. I'm no tech genius, but it should have been simpler to install.
Excerpt: The DSL modem and wireless router were simple to set up, but I'm disappointed with the performance. I have a USB hard drive plugged in and there is a large delay when accessing files. It won't even stream 1080p video without skipping.
Excerpt: The salesperson may be at fault for my disappointment since he assured me that this product could handle all multimedia without lag. I was going to buy a more expensive product that was advertised to easily handle my home network, however the salesperson told me this product would work just as well.
Excerpt: Very easy to set up the DSL and Router Portions of the N600. I marked this router combo unit down due to it's poor reception at 35 feet away the computer only get one to two bars of signal strength. Other lesser feactured units I have tried get twice that.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Excerpt: Make sure you know about network equipment because its a little mind work is needed. Great connection if you have solid wall you still will need an ext. unit (NET-GEAR)to boot the signal through out your place.
