Summary: My initial feelings towards this device was great, up until it continued to disconnect regularly and other problems. Some say it's due to the product design , on ho it overheats. Either way I would not recommend this to anyone. Save your money
Summary: I upgraded from a Linksys 802.11b wireless router to this model. Setup was a snap, and I get a 3X increase in download speed to my home PC connected via wire (not a wireless connection) over my Optimum Online cable service. This alone was worth the cost to me.
Summary: I bought my first one a while ago and it died within the warrany period. I worked with Netgear support and they sent me a new one. Today I woke up and the second one has died. The green power light comes on but nothing else. I will never buy another Netgear router. Gotta go.
Summary: There is nothing good I could possibly say about this. It worked for about six months. Same problem as all the rest. One day it just died. (For the record, I bought this in 2006.) Before it broke, it would hardly ever work.
Summary: I should have read the reviews before I purchased this product. It worked fairly well for maybe 6 weeks, although I did have to reset the product a few times by cycling the power. Then one day I came in and all the lights were blinking as usual other than the wireless light.
Summary: Theres no doubt you'll be returning this router, but on the bright side, it will fail during your warranty period. The bad side of it is you'll have to pay bloated shipping rates to get your new one. This router worked good for me while it worked (10 months).
Summary: I'm a free-lance IT consultant, and during 2007, I installed 4 of these routers, and ALL of them have failed. So far, one has been replaced, and the replacement failed. The other three were simply trashed, even though they were under warranty, because Netgear's replacement procedures are so...
Summary: This is the worst product that I have ever bought. I bought this because my first router netgear also broke after one month . This one was their most expensive at this time. Problems- very buggy softwear. I couldn't make it to to let my p2p programs work properly. The router broke after 6 months.
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.
