Well worth the outlay in terms of cost for a decent wireless router.

  • Excerpt: 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.

A brilliant modem

  • Excerpt: 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.

Great stable router with great range and speed

  • Excerpt: 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.

Amazing, fast, many features, easy to use

  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: Expected so much and really disappointed. Range not as good as hoped and it has proved really unreliable, cutting out with increasing frequency. Phone help incomprehensible.

  • Excerpt: I had an old router which packed in about 2 weeks ago. Bought this as it was the cheapest online and it was a breeze to set up. I've had no problems at all.

Rappresentava il futuro, ma con la stabilità di un prototipo

  • Summary: Tra gli innumerevoli modem router che ho avuto è presente anche il Netgear DG834N . Lo comprai all'epoca perché era uno dei primi router che si "avvicinava" allo standard del wifi N, infatti qui troviamo un wifi "draft N" che arriva a 270 Mbps come velocità a di trasmissione . Le caratteristiche tecniche di questo modem sono molto interessanti, infatti chiaramente sono presenti 4 porte ethernet, il modem è completamente gestibile mediante una interfaccia web ben...
  • Pros: Impostabile in tutto, design verticale, LED molto visibili
  • Cons: Assenza pulsante on/off , instabilità generale

Sarebbe ottimo se non si bloccasse spesso

  • Summary: Ho comprato questo router perchè attirato dalle sue caratteristiche tecniche (al tempo uno dei pochi con protocollo draft-N) e estetiche (secondo me è uno dei più belli e eleganti router da casa) visto che è posizionato su un tavolino bene in vista. Non è facile da configurare, il suo menù consente molte impostazioni e setaggi ma solo un utente esperto lo può impostare nel modo più corretto, il suo pregio maggiore è la portata, anche se in casa ci sono molti muri spessi...
  • Pros: Veloce e con un segnale molto forte, settaggi completi, bello esteticamente
  • Cons: Instabile sotto uso intenso, manca tasto accensione /spegnimento

  • Summary: Per mia esperienza personale trovo che questo modello abbia diversi difetti. per ben due volte ho dovuto riportarlo indietro in garanzia perchè aveva problemi di funzionamento. Questo perchè è stato uno dei primi modelli ad avere le antenne interne, e quindi è stata una specie di prova. Non si può lasciarlo sempre acceso perchè si surriscalda, non esiste un tasto di accensione e spegnimento.
  • Pros: estensione rete
  • Cons: problemi tecnici
