Summary: The router is large considering there is not much inside of it. It is very light though. If you stick with Netgear's firmware you WILL have problems!!! Fortunately this router can handle DD-WRT, up to 4mb standard edition. Visit the DD-WRT site.

Summary: i bought this like last year and it has kept on going it was easy to setup for me, there was some maionr issues setting it up but after that i worked perfect i know there are some better ones out there now but this is still a great router for the price i paid for it so just wanted to put my 2cents...
Summary: I originally bought one of these routers 2 years ago. One day it just stopped working. I thought it was broken, so I bought a new one. It turned out to be a bad power supply. Not happy about that.
Summary: I almost bricked this router. I flashed from the netgear interface to a DD-WRT std (standard) firmware, which is WRONG. MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS!! If you don't first flash to the mini the way DD-WRT forums explains, you WILL be sorry.

Cons: The administrative interface will lock up often when I make changes. I have DD-WRT on there, which is great, but many times the admin CP will lock up on me when I try to "Apply Changes" - this ALWAYS requires a reboot to fix, but at least the router still works, so it won't kick anyone off until ...
Summary: I have had this unit around a week now, and it replaced a 4 year old zyexel g router that I had. Thus far, flawless. My old router used to drop signals about every other day requiring me to reboot my modem and router.
Summary: This is the first wireless router I have used, and I relied on the saleman's recommendation when I bought it. I spent one tedious hour getting it set up. After that, it has been a joy. I have been using it for 6 months with no trouble at all.
Summary: My 5-year old Netgear WGR614 wireless G-standard router was starting to drop connection with my cable modem so I shopped around, read the reviews and decided to stay with Netgear despite the mixed reviews.
Summary: It took my husband many hours to set up this piece of equipment, but it works very well. I think this type of equipment is difficult to set up unless you are a trained technician. We have had no problems with the reuter so far.
