Would recommend router from service you will be using.

RedHead, Amazon

  • Summary: It caused some major issues with my phone service hooking it up since it was not "their" modem, the help they could give me to set up my system was very limited. I am no computer guru and needed all the help I could get.

OK for PC use, but useless in connecting some peripheral devices.

  • Summary: I bought this router to replace a 2Wire 2701H-G in hopes that it would recognize my Sony Blue Ray player and provide a path for it to the internet. The player is PHYSICALLY connected to the router via one of the 4 ports on the router itself.

Hot Hot Hot w/ Wireless on!

Anonymous, Newegg
5 January 2011
  • Summary: I would appreciate seeing a 1000Mbps model of this unit, with the latest n speeds, and a better cooling solution. Would I recommend the purchase of this unit to friends and clients? Only so long as they know exactly what the issues are and how they will have to be dealt with.
  • Pros: Fast for the Range, easily maxed. Wireless N faster than hard-wire connection. Configuration tools seen only on some of the most expensive systems. For the price, the safety offered and the capabilities....this unit may not be beatable. Plugged right into Qwest DSL service without issue
  • Cons: Had to replace once. I found that running the wireless continuously runs the heat to unbelievable levels. A physical Hack and a fan would correct this, as is now; I turn off Wireless unless I have friend family or group gaming. Customer service was easy and there is an affordable option to get the

Don't place near other electronics

L. Petersen, Amazon
28 March 2010
  • Summary: We bought this a couple of months ago and were never really happy as we kept dropping the connection intermittently, often 10-20 times per hour, then not at all for a couple of hours. In fact, we were researching routers to replace it.

DNS bug, picky firewall

Karl P., Newegg
19 February 2010
  • Summary: more reliable than my ISP provided DSL modem (Actiontec)
  • Pros: reliable DSL modem, custom firewall rules, time of day firewall rules (two duty cycles), dyndns.org support, website blacklisting
  • Cons: ** When I first got this modem it would not forward my ISP's DNS properly. It also would not allow me to forward that DNS setting to my clients via DHCP. Support's workaround was to use the public DNS servers 4.2.2.2/31 This is not best practice. ** The firewall rule interface is too picky about ...

Good but watch out...

JesusChristDotCom, Amazon

  • Summary: Good product--easy to set up and it works great. When I got mine it had bad power supply and you wouldn't tell what's wrong because one minute it would work and another it would not--I wiggled the power cord and lo and behold it was a bad power supply--very cheaply made.

Consider another product.

Ellon, Amazon
9 November 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the Netgear DGN2000 to replace my Netopia 2247 simply because; I wanted added features such as email notification, wireless N and website blocking out of one device. The device was easy to configure out of the box and it was up and running in no time.

RUNS TOO HOT

Frederick J., Newegg
27 September 2009
  • Pros: Start up CD was useful and helpful.
  • Cons: If the unit was set up at the fast mode it would then not work with any of my other "g" class wifi units. The unit runs much too hot. The unit was not better at reaching weak signal spots in my house than the unit it replaced. $100 for very little benefit unless I moved to all "n" class wifi units.
