  • Excerpt: After another bad expearance with a wireless router that refused to work correctly, we decided to switch to yet another different band. So far we've had no problems. With our old routers any time I moved my room around we lost our  internet conncetion, but I've yet to have that problem with this one. Easy installation was easy. It's never over heated, I am not sure why some claim that this modem overheats easily, I leave this on almost constantly.

fast connection to the internet

  • Excerpt: I had to get a wireless router to put a boost for my cell phone signal on it.  The area where I live gets terrible cell phone reception so I needed to hook up a signal boost to a wireless router in addition to using the router for wireless internet access.  Anyway, the router works great with the cell phone boost adapter and now I get great cell phone service.  And the router works great with my internet connection and I get fast connection to the internet on my laptop.

  • Excerpt: the Netgear wireless router has worked great for me 95% of the time.  Once in a while I do have to take it out and put it back in to start it up again.  For me, that's no problem since I hate wires runing all over the apartment.

The Netgear DG834 Wireless Router Works Well

Saxguy, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I had originally had a 2Wire wireless router for my ATT Plus DSL service. That unit woirked well, but the wireless signal in other areas of the house was often intermittent and weak. So, I went to Staples and bought this unit, the Netgear DG834G Wireless Router for around $60. I was impressed with the wireless router functionality and the Netgear reputation, since it is manufactured by Cisco.

Netgear routers hate my laptop

  • Excerpt: For the average user, it seems that Netgear routers are somewhat reliable.  My family has gone through 2 before switching over to Linksys and Asus routers.  Both Netgear routers did not last very long, but I have seen plenty of friends whose routers have lasted years.  One problem I've always had with Netgear routers, was the fact that as soon as my laptop would connect the router would die.  It would need to be reset and then it would work with my laptop...

Good value for the price

  • Excerpt: This router gives you a pretty good bang for your buck.  I picked it up from Fry's as a refurbished model for $15 dollars and at that price, I went ahead and bought the last remaining three to set up a couple at friends and relatives houses. Setup went pretty well for the most part, although I did end up having to contact customer service to activate the security encryption. The representatives were very helpful and I got through the process in less than four minutes.

  • Excerpt: I've had this Netgear wireless router for almost 3 years.  It has never given me a problem at all.  The signal is great, it has always worked the way it should, and it is perfect for a DSL internet connection.
