Summary: First of all, be aware that even though all of their documentation says that this router can be used with a MAC computer, the included Setup CD is NOT compatible. The instructions on how to set up this router without the Setup CD is SOMEwhere on their website, but you will have to wade through a LOT of web pages in order to find what you need. Even then, you're not going to be sure if the information applies to what you have. All is not lost.
Summary: I was skeptical on take this router because I really can not believe that I can get something good for this price, but I am really impressed with this router it provides me total coverage in a two floors house (concrete) which any linksys-cisco router can not do in the past I actually change a more expensive WRT160N for this, and I am very happy, the other good thing is that you can change the antennas (which I did) and the coverage is very powerful, so do not spend your...
Summary: After reading all previous good comments I bought the device. Installation was a breeze, the wizard is well designed and the manual is actually helpful. Preliminary runs were good, wireless speed is excellent (compared with my previous router, a D-Link best forgotten). Also the signal reaches all of my house and is strong. Then it went downhill just as fast: it drops (wireless) connection almost every 30 seconds or so.

Summary: I initially had some trouble setting this up using the wizard. I unplugged and restarted everything and thought that might have solved it; the router said it was successfully configured, but there was no internet. It wasn't until after calling tech support and later reading in the troubleshooting that, if you have cable internet, you need to configure the router via the Web Management Page.
Summary: My internet access was crashing a couple times per day, and the rebooting and re-configuring of the router was required after each disruption. This new router was priced reasonably, delivered promptly in good condition, and eliminated my internet access problem. I have no complaints.
Summary: I have tried installing a wifi network before using Netgear. I was horrible, I couldn't get it to accept the password in the instructions and the customer service people were rude. I plugged this in, followed the set-up instructions and I am streaming video baby!! I totally recommend this unit to anyone who wants wifi. I have a 1500+ sq house and this unit covers it with no issues.
Summary: set it up (MAC) and it worked fast and as described. signal dropped somehow sometimes and after a call with Customer Service (GREAT GUYS) I understood a lot more how and what. The WiFi signals in my area where all coming on at night and pushing my signal away. So I downloaded an app on my phone and walked around the neighborhood to see who was on what channel. Set up a better channel (normal 3 channels bandwidth) and no more problems since. Worth the money !
