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: 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.
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: 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...
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: 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.
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.
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.
