Summary: I don't know the different variables each customer has set up for their systems, but I have owned this unit for at least 18 months. I too had problems with the unit droppinig internet connections for approximately 3 months.
Summary: Just thought I would throw my 2 cents in on this router. The router is great, fast and reliable. Netgear is the best out there as I have tried the others and still cannot come close to reliability and features.
Summary: I have used this router for a little more than 30 days. Setup was very time-consuming, but may be due to a firmware problem. The devices I wanted to connect were: A hard-wired Vista laptop, a hard-wired XP desktop, a WiFi XP laptop, a hard-wired all-in-one (printer/scanner/copier), a WiFi all-in-one...
Nice router but need better product quality testing!!!

Summary: I purchased the router about 5 months ago (10/2007) had it up and running in no time. Love it. Came home one night and got the visit from the green light of death god (2/2008). Called customer service and was surprised they handled my call very quickly.
Summary: Let me say first off, this is an excellent router. It is my personal favourite of all routers that I have either owned or worked with. I realize that many people here (and elsewhere) have been burned by this router but if you'll bear with me, I'll justify my four stars by explaining why yours might...
Summary: I bought this router primarily for its GB LAN support because of some NAS I have connected to a four-drop hardwired network within the house. It has provided excellent security protection and total reliability.
Summary: First unit failed, locked up wouldn't reset, replaced for free and is operating now. About half the time, won't assign ip address on connect, just like the belkin i was using before. security features are average for the similar products.
Summary: First let me say that I am a very knowledgeable user. I work for Microsoft as a senior developer, and have a lot of experience with routers. As with most of NetGears routers, this thing is almost unusable.
Summary: Actually the router works great and the signal strength is also wonderful. We have not had any issues and we have been using it for a couple of months now. It does not have the big blue "strobe" light like others have.
