this particular item was broken.

6 October 2012
  • Summary: This instance of this product did not work. I do believe there was something physically wrong with this particular item. Netgear has a great reputation for making excellent networking hardware. Unfortunately this one must have some internal hardware issues that have not been fixed under the warranty before putting it up for sale. I gave it 5 stars for value and features on the premise that if it had worked properly, it would indeed have been a great value.

WNR854T: Don't waste your money. Buy Linksys.

Felix Kasza "Felix Kasza", Amazon

  • Summary: A year and a half ago, I bought a WNR854T, and I was quite happy with configuration and performance of the router. A year and two weeks ago, the router died -- power light green, nothing else lit up, as usual -- and since I needed a router, I thought "stuff happens" and bought another one while the first unit was going through an in-warranty replacement So far, so good.

Listen to the others reviewers - I didn't

Kaushik Banerjee "KauBan", Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this "product" for a month. In my defense, when I bought this TOL's detailed review wasn't up yet. If you buy this today, you won't have that straw to clutch to. I have had a wireless network in my home for 5 years or more. It runs off a Netgear MR814, works great. I decided I needed more bandwidth over wireless, Gbps for the wire connected computers. A friend in the switch industry recommended this, I ignored my usual research and bought it.

Dont Buy This

Adam Santos, Amazon
24 November 2007
  • Summary: After 6 months started to fail on occasion, but could be fixed by rebooting. After 7 months it failed completely as others have described. I replaced it with my 4 year old WGR614 and it still worked fine, just slower.

This router died after 4 months!

John M., Amazon
13 November 2007
  • Summary: Same problem as previous poster. One day I got home from work and only the power light was lit. No network activity lights. Tried to unplug for 30 seconds and plug back in. Tried the reset button. Could not log into router. It was dead. I've trusted Netgear product's for many years and this is by far the worst product I have ever purchased from them. I must say this router was by far the best router I have owned until it died randomly.

PLOD - Power Light of Death

Edward G. Pope "RFRStormer", Amazon
11 November 2007
  • Summary: Stay away from this router. I have been working in and with computers for 28+ years. This product is simply horrible, firmware bugs (that I admit for the most part are fixed) but everyone appears to be having problems with it working more than 6 Months.. I am on my 3rd router which just died, this time after 3 months. Just not reliable at all.

Another Dead Router

L. Shen, Amazon
30 October 2007
  • Summary: Like many who've posted about this product, my WNR854T also died to the infamous "single green power indicator light" problem after about 5 months of use. It's great while it works. When it dies, however, no amount of power cycling, resetting, or coaxing will bring this router back. The customer service is poor at best and Netgear will make you pay for at least shipping even if you are within the warranty period.

PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW

TOL, Amazon
28 October 2007
  • Summary: First, let's get a few things out of the way: I am not a newbie, I am not bitter, and I have absolutely no incentive to bash any company - Netgear included. I am writing this review because I want to prevent anyone else from making the mistake of buying this product. Why? Because it is a defective design - and, more importantly, Netgear has no idea what is wrong with it. What does that mean to you as a consumer? Your device will most likely fail.

Superb for a few months, then useless

Asi, Amazon
20 October 2007
  • Summary: This was an incredible router - both wired and wireless speeds and connections were strong, stable and fast - until the power completely cut out on it. After an hour with tech support following incredibly inane requests, I received a replacement (at $16). That replacement was defective out of the box - sending malformed packets but otherwise appearing functional.
