Summary: I work out of a home office a couple of days a week and depend on a fast internet connection to my company's email server. I recently upgraded my Netgear Wireless G system for this Netgear Wireless N approach, expecting great things... faster and, importantly, a more dependable connection.
Summary: Having set up wireless routers in the past, I was able to get this one up and running pretty quickly. However, if you have never done it before, look somewhere else. The set-up "Wizard" is not too smart. Finally, I abandoned the Wizard and did the set-up manually and it worked fine.
Great security, difficult set-up, especially for MACs

Summary: The physical setup of the router - connecting the cables, plugging it in, and configuring it with a wired connection - is a breeze. I accomplished it in under 10 minutes. Then I spent the next 4 hours getting our wireless computers to connect.
Summary: The unit works well but is not as Mac friendly as I'd like. We had to call tech support after a month to reset some things. It may have been the result of a lighting storm. Their tech support people are in India. The first one we had was so hard to understand because of a strong accent.
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.
Summary: I was using a Netgear Rangemax WPN824 for years, both here and in Mexico. The one in Mexico I had outside under a piece of plastic so neighbors could connect to the internet. It worked fine for about 3 years, it finally died, I assumed from the exposure to the weather.
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.
Summary: I bought the Netgear WNR834B-100NAS Wireless N Router because I was looking for a reasonably priced N router and I also wanted some additional security features. Though manufactured in 2006 this device does provide nice security features: you have a firewall, NAT, SPI, a MAC filtering option, and...
Summary: I bought this router to act as a wireless repeater. I already had a slightly better model of Netgear router for my home that I use for the Base. After going through all of the instructions to set it up as a repeater it constantly jams my wireless...basically shutting it down.
Summary: Product is great but the seller didn't include the CD with is not that big of deal except I cant lock it and am not sure it even installed correctly. But still have Internet and a wireless signal.
