  • Summary: I used Netgear routers before. They were good. But this product appears a step backward from Netgear. Product was buggy. Access control didn't work at all. Firmware upgrade web admin interface crushed on me. So I had to download latest version from Netgear website and manually apply it. After that, access control still didn't work. This was something that worked out of box in previous generations of product, even 10 years ago.

Not that good.....

NETGEAR N150 Wifi Router, Staples
30 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Purchased this router to connect my home surveillance system to. It is a 2 camera system and I have a cable hook-up but needed Wi-Fi in order for the camera to work. This router is not strong enough to carry the signal. I barely get a signal on my camera. It may be okay for computer use (I still have the cable hook-up so can't really say for sure on that end either) but would not recommend for a camera system.

  • 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.
  • Cons: Unreliable

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
  • Cons: Unreliable

  • 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.
