Summary: Netgear’s DG834N provides good value in terms of router and modem capability and security features. We were very impressed with its modem sync speeds, but no Gigabit Ethernet and poor throughput speeds make this a poor router for heavy data transfer and media streaming needs.
Pros: 802.11n capability, great DSL sync speeds
Cons: No Gigabit Ethernet, poor wireless data transfer speeds

provides faster speeds on the local network. Most users probably won't see a

speeds are not currently approaching the speeds that 802.11n should offer.
Wireless aside, it doesn't seem to bring any features that other routers don't
offer at a lower price (and is missing some features those cheaper routers
