Some time useful, but sometimes can't work

Hanqing Li, Amazon
18 December 2012
  • Summary: Shoper use usps ship the router. But when I open the box, the cover of the router is broken. I just think it doesn't matter if it works. The first time I use it, it works well. But few days later, sometimes it can't work. The internet is intermittent.

Disappointing

daveman, Amazon

  • Summary: Running Windows-7 on a new Dell box. It works fine with my laptops running XP, where I can use the extra "gizmo" adapter to setup devices with the router. But it's totally hopeless to add anything that can't use the adapter. Mac laptops, Kindles, etc., will not play with this router.

Worked fine, until Netgear broke it! Now it's a brick.

  • Summary: I didn't buy this on Amazon, but I am so mad at Netgear and their so-called support that I am writing this review to let people know what they might be in for if they buy any of their products.

Good.......when it works.

Drew D., Newegg
14 January 2011
  • Summary: Don't pay a dime for their products, this is the 3rd faulty product I've purchased of this company, and it's 3 strikes and YER OUT. This is by far the WORST experience I've had with this company, who has now outsourced what seems to be it's entire company away from America.
  • Pros: Very strong signal and secure.
  • Cons: after 4 months it bricked out, called my ISP and they told me I needed to reach the manufacturer, after calling them the first time, trying to tell them it was DEAD, they kept telling me to reinstall the firmware, even after I notified them I attempted such. I made 5 calls in total, one of whom d...

The good always die young

James D., Newegg
7 January 2011
  • Summary: I really liked this router for the 2 or 3 weeks I owned it but then it inexplicably died. I lost my XBox Live connection, went to check the router, and it was gone... completely dead. I've read other reviewers say the same thing and should have listened.
  • Pros: Very good range and speed when it worked
  • Cons: Occasionally dropped signal which can be a problem when streaming video on a TV or using a game console.

Disappointed

Josh J., Newegg
29 December 2010
  • Summary: I had read the reviews like many others and figured eh what the hell, it's a good price and I just love my NetGear GS108T gigabit switch. I bought this router to replace a Linksys WRT54G that I had for years and ran into an issue with a Dell PowerEdge 1750 I use as a personal mail server for myself.
  • Pros: Quick and easy configuration through web interface. The only Pro here that I can think of other than the configuration was that Newegg.com was responsive and great to work with on the return.
  • Cons: Wireless signal drops, router would reboot itself.

Disappointment!

Bradley B., Newegg
23 December 2010
  • Summary: I am not happy AT ALL.
  • Pros: I sure It would have performed well.
  • Cons: In this day and age, how could something ship with compatibility for only windows XP and Vista 32-bit, I am so irritated. Windows 7 was out over a year ago. The fact that Netgear has yet to update there software is flabbergasting. I called technical support and they walked me through the manual i...

How did this thing ever get through Quality Control?

Pc Pete "PC Pete", Amazon
6 December 2010
  • Summary: If zero stars was permitted, that's what it would get. Oh sure... it sets up easily, but then it doesn't work. The wireless connection drops out for no reason, but this is nothing compared to its super-slow throughput. Cheaper routers give me 14-15Mb/s download on my cable internet.

Drop connections

Steve B., Newegg
2 December 2010
  • Summary: Would never buy this router again. This is a documented problem with this router and no firmware updates seem to help. A shame, considering I invested a lot of money to buy this, with the hopes it would help my spotty network coverage.
  • Pros: Powerful wifi, gigabit ethernet, generally very capable at distributing bandwidth.
  • Cons: Drops connections very easily, making this router essentially unusable. With computers it generally drops down to about 5mbps, where it continues to putter. With a network restart, it goes back up to 54, then drops back down in a few minutes. With an iPhone, the connection drops entirely and no d...
