Summary: I was looking for a router within my budget, and this fitted my purse well. No problem in ordering online & the pick up was ok. It took two days for delivery. Installing & starting off took a little time, but after the initial set up, it is smooth sailing up to date.
Summary: I received my netgear with my internet service. It has been a pain since I got it, the setup was not easy and it kept on knocking out my wireless service. The biggest complaint was setting up a secure account. After I had set it up it kept rejecting the password so nobody in my house could log online. After two months of this I dumped it and got a Cisco and it works great. I had another netgear about 7 years ago and that was a disaster.
Summary: This Router as recieved surprised me, it was more than I expected, I ordered two of these at the same time and the first came and there was nothing with it, cables,installation disk, stand, pamphlet, nothing. This one had every thing I needed to install it and configure it. It provided me with what I needed to make my other customer happy as well. Thank you very much.
CD instructions don't match owner manual instructions

Summary: When my WGR614 from Netgear was smoked by a monster voltage spike, I decided Netgear was the way to go again since the WGR614 was, hands down, the easiest wireless router install I'd ever done. Not so with this one. The order of steps is different between the printed owner sheet and the instructions contained in the CD. Neither worked. A call to tech support resulted in reaching a disinterested tech who'd obviously never seen one of these units. No help there.
Summary: First off, the Amazon picture is wrong: this is an antenna'd unit. Besides that, I both have and have set-up hundreds of these units (while working for a company that installed these for streaming media from their units through the internet connection to their customers' handhelds). What it sounds like is people who aren't very literate with computers, the kind who complain when confronted with terms like "url", are trying to use these: the WNR1000v.2 is used by large...
Summary: I recieved the router on time - Amazon prime delivery is always on time. The router was packed with the plastic like it was brand new. I set it up and was running it on my network within 5 minutes. It works flawlessly. I have several Netgear routers - they are a great buy.
Summary: I was thinking it might be risky to buy something that is not technically new. But this one works perfectly. Very easy to set up. And it provides stable and fast Wifi signal. The price is good enough too.
Summary: Wifi works great, has good range, no problems with use. It came with the CD to setup, but I found it easier just to go to the site listed directly on the back of the unit and do it from there.
