Use caution when unplugging cables

Thomas M., Newegg
13 July 2015
  • Summary: Still a solid value for a budget router. Just take your time and use care if your Ethernet cables take a lot of squeeze force to compress the tang enough to unplug them. Use a small implement to compress the tang without flexing the RJ45 jack and circuit board.
  • Pros: I've bought maybe 6 of these over the last few years. For my purposes, we kept WiFi disabled for maximum security, so I can mainly say the wired capabilities work as expected.
  • Cons: I've had three of these fail when I was unplugging the Ethernet cables to do some reconfiguration. The RJ45 jacks are recessed a bit, so when trying to squeeze the plugs to disengage them, I guess I flex the jacks enough to break something in there. No lights, no power, another dead WNR1000.

  • Summary: We could not get it to work; have to have a $75.00 service call. It turn out the new router now has a new passphase. The directions for easy insulation did not mention that . Me extender network also needed reprograming. The N router did not improve my connection any.

Slower unit

Redwood, Amazon
6 December 2014
  • Summary: Naturally, I found a new one (same exact item) vs this refurb for alot less at ABC Warehouse, shortly after this purchase. This is the low end model and slower than most. I stay hard wired for the most part, but this will work, if I want wireless access out on my deck and not go over 25-30 feet away...

A warning about the new "AP mode" in the 1.0.2.68 firmware

A fair reviewer, Amazon
25 June 2014
  • Summary: Netgear's latest 1.0.2.68 firmware (released June 18, 2014) now provides official AP (Access Point) support for this router. This router is an incredible value when compared to the cost of dedicated access points out there.
