Summary: So I get this product instructions was followed easy 1,2,3,4, steps but did not work. After some trouble shooting of my own, I called the customer help # on the box. that's when it all went wrong. They wanted to register the Netgear, I find out that the item is two years old and for them to provide Tech support they wanted me to send my recipt as profe of purchase.
Summary: Cannot beat this product at this price - I paid $29.99 (same model from Best buy runs $49). Simple setup - unless you want to mess with settings, it is literally plug and play. Preset password was (I think) sufficiently long and random. Good signal and performance throughout a 2 story house. Speedtest.net showed performance nearly the same as wired connection. In use about 2 weeks now and working fine can't ask for more.
Summary: This thing had to be unplugged and plugged back in every day sometime twice a day. Tried online support and the setting changes did not work. Was only trying to run 2 wireless computers and the router would lose connection to both everyday. Not a product I would recommend if you want a reliable connection. My first ever Netgear product. It's my last.
Summary: Probably I received a faulty product, but I had to constantly reboot the Wi-Fi router since the devices wouldn't connect after a brief idle period. This can pose many problems as your smart phones would not receive Wi-Fi resulting in your Data usage go up unexpectedly.
