  • 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

  • Summary: Now on my second router, tech support said the first one had hardware issues. Second one has the same problems (what's the odds of getting 2 duds) Wireless does not work unless you are within 1m, even then it cuts out or has trouble connecting. Removed all possibility of interference and no change.
  • Pros: looks good
  • Cons: wireless issues!

  • 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.

IMPOSSIBILE CONNETTERSI ALLA RETE SENZA FILI....

Andreaz21, Ciao
11 July 2007
  • Excerpt: ...positiva... dopo l'installazione inizia l'odissea NETGEAR ... Infatti il router ha spaventosi cali di segnale , incostanza e totale assenza di affidabilità tanto che dai primi giorni in cui il segnale spariva ogni tanto si è arrivati ai giorni attuali dove circa ogni 10 min misteriosamente la rete Netgear diventa impossibile da trovare e mette sempre più alla prova i miei nervi , dediderosi di prendere il router e fargli provare l'esperienza del volo ...
  • Pros: Design , facile da installare
  • Cons: Non crea una connessione senza fili stabile .  .  .
