Good router that doesn't last

E. Jones, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: The Netgear RangeMax WNR854T was easy to set up and worked flawlessly for a couple of years, but it stopped working suddenly. My Netgear type b is still kicking, so it's not necessarily the company.

Outdated with New Win OS

seattle_mother, Amazon
30 May 2012
  • Summary: I gave it two stars for working for many years - I've actually had it for five years! But I woke up one morning with my newer windows os laptop which now automatically updates windows for me, and with the new windows updates during the night my Netgear router decided it isn't compatible anymore.

Adding my voice to the litany

J. S. White, Amazon
4 June 2008
  • Summary: This product is seriously flawed. As has been said, no, I'm not a newbie, no I'm not particularly bitter or angry and I have no vendetta. That said - I was quite happy to get this product, as my prior G network had always been plagued by instability and interference.

Router bit the dust

Mink, Amazon
5 April 2008
  • Summary: I used my computer last night and went out for the evening. I came home and my router had bit the dust. I have had this router for 10 months. Add me to the list of unhappy campers. I will not bother trying to get Netgear to replace this product.

Died, and the replacement Died

Tim, Amazon
11 March 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this router one year ago. Since then it has just died. I sent it back to Netgear and they sent me a new one. That took me offline for one week. Plus I had too pay for shipping the replacement router. That one died in about six months. That is two routers in less than twelve months.

Another victim

Brent E. Boudreaux, Amazon
7 November 2007
  • Summary: TOL from long island was pretty much correct on his review. I just wanted to update that. The option to have it within 2 business days costs $29.90 instead of the price of the router. This router worked great for me up until 2 days ago when i received the dreaded green light.

Will stop buying Netgear

Simon L, Amazon
23 October 2007
  • Summary: Mediocre LAN throughput and abysmal wifi reliability. Wireless radio had problems right from the start; would stop working a couple times each day and we'd have to restart it. Whole thing just stopped dead after less than a month of regular usage.

Not stable, troublesome in establishing connections.

ThomasH, Amazon
23 October 2007
  • Summary: Today, Oct 30 2007 our router died the "single green light" death, observed here by so many others. It is just out of warranty. I am glad to see that my primary warning about the "New Netgear Standard" found so many confirming voices. If we helped you to make a better router selection, I am glad.

5 months of bliss...then a crashing halt

J. O'Brien, Amazon
23 October 2007
  • Summary: Same problem as many others. 5 months with no problems at all. Then it just stopped working and the power light stays on. I am waiting on my replacement and hopefully i won't have to return and post another comment in 5 months.

Great overall -- until it died and I needed customer support

kfagoora, Amazon
21 October 2007
  • Summary: I got this router around the beginning of the year, and it had everything I wanted: good wireless speed and range (it streamed HD video smoothly over 802.11n) and 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports (for my Gigabit NAS storage and Apple Mac Mini).
