It keeps dropping internet connection

Reezie, Staples
27 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I needed something quick and cheap and you get what you pay for. Every time I'm online it loses the internet connection. I had a D-Linx for over 10 years with no problems.

I won't buy netgear again.

Dr. J, Staples
27 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this to set up a wireless home network to work with a cable modem. It set up easy and worked great on four of five devices. BUT my Acer netbook would connect to the network, but could NOT connect to the internet via the wireless connection. I spent two hours on the phone with Netgear tech support and they couldn't make it work. I bought a Linksys router and everything worked just fine!!!!
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Small

DO NOT UPGRADE FIRMWARE

Dan, Radioshack
12 February 2012
  • Summary: Everything was working great until i decided to change security on the wifi. When i opened the device homepage, it started updating the firmware, and i thought, ok cool. The GUI of the new FW was very nice, and easy to navigate..... The problems came 2 minutes after finishing what i set out to do. BEWARE THIS LATEST FIRMWARE HAS MAJOR CONNECTION ISSUES.
  • Pros: Simple
  • Cons: Firmware

User Review

CitizenXC, Walmart
26 November 2011
  • Summary: Pros: The router was easy to set up, and so were the parental controls. Wired connections are consistently fast. Cons: Unable to stay connected to this device outside the line of sight. Tech support is horrible. This router was purchased to replace a dead G router that was on the bottom shelf of a computer desk under a printer. I could surf the web from my driveway.

Seems to work fine

  • Excerpt: It works fine, but, if there is lightning within 10 miles of the office it burns out. Be sure to get the replacment warranty so you can get a new one for about $7.50. They have lasted any from 5 days to almost a year.

Lousy firmware

Jim, Staples
10 August 2010
  • Excerpt: This Netgear router is the worst router that I have ever used. Its hardware is probably OK but its firmware is very lousy. It drops connections randomly for certain types of devices, such as Motorola Droid. It also drops ssh connections on your computer from time to time. I struggled with this router for a few weeks by changing the configurations in many different ways, and could solve all the problems only by replacing the router by a different brand.
  • Pros: Small
