Does everything I ask and more

  • Excerpt: I gotta say that this is a great router for it's price.  I got it online for less than $70.00.  It works all the time and has great range.  There had been some places in my basement that my last router couldn't reach.  This one not only reached those spaces with a minimum of compromise to speeds, it reached even farther than I thought it would (I live in the country and my sister was sitting in the driveway on her computer, thanks to this router).

not that happy

  • Excerpt: i recently went on broad band, so I got Netgear for my laptop. I like the fact that it is wireless now, but I cannot say that the speed is very good.  It should be the fastest speed available, and I am not quite sure if it is the MODEM'S fault or Netgears. It is very easy to set up though, even an old woman like me can do it. I do wish though it was sturdier, because it has a tendency to tip over if your foot hits it.

The Netgear RangeMax Wireless-N Router works wonderfully!

  • Excerpt: I bought this Maxrange Netgear Wireless router so my daughter could hook into my internet connection.  I have a desktop computer and she has a laptop.  We both are on the computer, on average, about 14 hours a day and we love the ease of our connections.  This item was very easy to hook up and get started.  We just read the directions, hooked in the ethernet wire, plugged it into the wall and inserted the software.

Here's to one of the best routers on the market today!

  • Excerpt: This router is simply all around fantastic! From set up to daily functionality, this router is easy and reliable. Set up is a breeze with the wizard provided, and it only took around fifteen minutes before I was up and running. The range of signal offered is great as well. I can be anywhere in my house and receive an excellent signal. I can even get a good signal out in my yard!

Flash with DD-WRT for an even better router!

X4arms, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a great router if you want to run DD-WRT. I was able to find information on how to flash it online, and had DD-WRT up and running in no time! Even though the router does not come with external antennas, the signal strength and reliability was great (compared to my previous Belkin router). I also like the glossy white look that matches older iMacs and other Apple hardware (if you happen to have those, like me).

Not very fast

SacH008, Amazon
10 December 2010
  • Summary: We bought this to replace a 7 year old NetGear router. Our office, where the router is, is about 500 feet from the house - so we were looking for both speed and distance. Netflix is still VERY slow to download, no change in internet in the office. This is no better than the old one - so lower your expectations of the "N" router's speed and distance.

Don't Bother

Deborah D. Ward, Amazon
16 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this router after much research. When I tried to install it, it immediately came back with an error. I tried several times, and even tried to manually install it. Finally after much frustration, I called Netgear. I was told by them that they couldn't help me as my 30 days of free technical help had expired, even though I had only had the router for 2 days!

A little slow sometimes

Eston Bond, Amazon
13 October 2010
  • Summary: I've owned this router for a while now. The range in my apartment is excellent - far better than my old Linksys router which was much more expensive. These routers are super-reasonable when refurbished as well; I've noticed that you can get one for about $30 on eBay these days. It's not particularly fast, especially so when everyone's streaming.

Dead after 2 years

A. Dewey, Amazon
24 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this router brand new from Best Buy and it lasted just past the factory warranty. Then it decided to go completely dead. No lights come on, it just stopped working for no reason. Technical support was kind enough to inform me that they would do nothing and I'm stuck with a dead unit. Thanks Netgear for your quality product! Never buying their junk again.
