Don't buy this if you need a properly functioning firewall.

jimbluesa, Ebay
21 August 2012
  • Summary: The firewall in this router is very poorly designed. Do not purchase this unit if you intend to use in with TSWeb/ Remote Access, since it does not properly map certain ports (like port 80). Even if you forward the ports properly, the firewall will not prevent port interception by other equipment.

Worked great, then a slow death

Noveltyfrosting, Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: It seem as though I am having a similar experience to others with the DNG2000. All went well to start with, the set up was easy and for 13 months it has worked flawlessly, Then port #1 died I changed to #2 after a week that died now port #3 will only connect at 10 mbps so I am shopping for a new DSL...

Worked great for awhile

Tim Heffley, Amazon
24 September 2010
  • Summary: The DGN2000 was easy to set up (however I am experienced at this), and worked great for about a year. But recently, 3 out of 4 Ethernet ports have become useless, running unusably slow or not connecting at all. Port #1 still works and I have had to add another switch to regain multiple ports.

User Review

  • Summary: I thought maybe I just had a bad unit but apparently the overheating and wired ports going bad is quite common. The DSL modem and wireless components still seem to work fine, but a router isn't much good with no working ethernet ports.
  • Pros: All in one box is convenient. Nice piece of hardware while it worked.
  • Cons: Unit gets very hot. Ethernet ports started getting flaky after a few months. Now they are totally dead.

Great while it works..

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Small Footprint, price.
  • Cons: Like a lot of others who use this modem...be prepared for the wired ports to stop working and for the unit to get HOT! My ports stopped working today, 1 day inside of warranty...hopefully they warranty this item...sucks that i have to return it though. I may just buy a new modem / router and say ...

Not a very good router

Dennis Klemenz, Amazon
15 July 2010
  • Summary: I've owned this router for 13 months (1 month past the warranty) and two of the LAN ports no longer work. The DSL modem drops the connection between 15-20x a day when the 2Wire that it replaced never dropped a signal. The router also is hot to touch which scares me since it is on a wood desk.

Goodbye Netgear

Ronald R., Newegg
28 May 2010
  • Summary: Netgear USED TO BE my top choice for home networking equipment. No more guys. Sorry, too short a life span for me to trust future products.
  • Pros: Works great, while it does. Good detection of DOS attempts. Great specs.
  • Cons: Lasted 16 months and died. 4 months out of warranty. Spent a long time working through the network to determine where the problem was, determined it was the modem/router failing. Ran very hot (hmm . . . might be related)

Worked fine - until it burned itself up

JRE, Amazon
10 April 2010
  • Summary: This router worked fine and connected with Qwest easily. It has a lot of nice features for a consumer-grade router. Wireless range seems good. However, this router runs very hot, and after about 6 months it started flaking out.

DGN2000 best way to slow Internet

Richard C., Newegg
24 March 2010
  • Summary: I didn't purchase from newegg, but have gotten great service from them in the past so 5 eggs to you. 2 eggs only because it has an integrated ADSL modem and decent N connectivity. Maybe I'll try it as an acess point.
  • Pros: The wireless N worked well between connected computers. It has an integrated ADSL modem.
  • Cons: The router reduced my internet connection speed. When I ran a speed test the router was unable to complete the test because it locked up. The comparison router is getting a solid 2.5Mb. I checked MPU size, verified all of my settings, and completed a Firmware update. The firware date helped somew...
