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.
Summary: I have to restar every day, it stop work every day, or twice a day. restar need 20+ mins, otherwise wont start, some times need restar 3+ times... can't find other LAN user at all, LAN stuff never works. even normal download will crash it. dont buy it, and I will never buy anything from them!
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 . . .
