Summary: When I recently purchased a new laptop I wanted a wireless router that would still give me good range even when I'm outside or upstairs. The DG834N is a funny little design. When I had friends round they thought it was a Nintendo Wii because it looks so much like one and they wouldn't believe me that it was a router. The quality of the router itself is really top notch.
Summary: I purchased this modem to upgrade from the one supplied by the Internet service provider and I was not disappointed. The DG834N was one of the first modems capable of the N (draft) speed. To take full advantage of this you should invest in a wireless N adapter for your other devices. However, even if you do not buy a N adapter you will still notice an increase in sharing over a network.
Pros: Looks minimal, easy to use, fast
Cons: Needs other N adapters to take full advantage
Summary: Picking a router is pretty difficult these days. There are an awful lot of routers out there and it is very, very difficult to choose the right one for you. The obvious things to consider are * Price * Ease of use/Ease of set up * Speed * Range * After sales support The more technical would also consider the functionality offered. The DG834N ticks the right boxes in each of these areas. Out of the box the router looks rather sleek.
Pros: Great stable router with great range and speed

Summary: I bought this this to replace a Belkin router that completely broke. The Belkin router was ok, but nowhere near as good at the Netgear DG834N. It comes in a nice, heavy big box and the router itself has a sort of nice, white apple style to it. It should fit in, in most homes, but if it doesn't then it is easy to hide away. The setup is simple, you just plug it in and it should detect your internet connection so you just have to enter a username and password.
Pros: Fast, easy to use, looks good, big range, many features

Summary: I started off with a basic Belkin router which I had for a few years but suddenly after a few years it just stopped working. I tried for many hours to reserrect it but failed miserably. Then i looked around for new routers and found the Belkin N1 router which promised so many great features such as 300mbps but after having it for a day i realised it had a poor signal and wouldn't even reach my room from the room with the router in.
Summary: This is ADSL2+ wireless router so its also pricey too. Yeah every ADSL2+ is costly because its new technology. Its working good. My wireless internet service demands that i use this router because its work in ATT wireless great. But it also works on sprint wireless .
Pros: Internal antenna is suprisingly powerful. Solid signal strength. Stable uptime. Solid 3G coverage.
Summary: Update: Netgear techos (after a lot of work to make them understand Australia is not in Argentina?) said it was abnormal for the router to emit small. Told me to return it. Now have Apple Airport Extreme and am very happy with it.
Summary: Easy to use and setup, quite attractive but it may cost you your house. For the past three days, it has stunk up my whole hose with a burnt electrical smell. A google search reveals hundreds of forum posts from users having the same problem and further problems with this device. They are unreliable,, overpriced and like in my case overheat. Some users have experienced this device actually "blowing up". Given the smell from mine, I am returning it.
Pros: Easy to set up and use
Cons: Prone to burn out and die Strong burnt electrical smell Gets Hot Fell cheap Poor technical support
