Summary: Bought with the intent of loading DD-WRT Turns out that you can't load all firmwares because it's version 2, a lot of builds can only use v1. That's acceptable because it worked in the end but I would have liked to know before I bought.
Good and reliable router as long as you don't need parental controls

Summary: I bought this router to replace a Linksys E1200. The Linksys had become unreliable when I had upgraded to firmware 2.004, and there is no way to go back to older firmware. Suddenly the Linksys router was unable to get an IP address from the provider through my bridged DSL modem, it only worked taking the DSL modem out of bridge mode. Also there was unexplained loss of Internet connection events with the Linksys when there is high traffic.
Summary: I bought this thinking that I would get faster service, but when I installed it everything slowed down. My computer internet speed and all my devices...i.e Ipad, Ipod...everything. I ended up switching it out for my old one because I got faster connections and downloads.
Summary: I bought this to replace an older Linksys router. Thought I was buying the V2 but got a V1, my bad I should have asked. Only downside to this router is a lag renewing leases for IP addresses. Otherwise I like the open control and easy interface.
When the "closed" or low-end just don't fit the bill--this will!

Summary: Provides the features I wanted (NAT, MAC filtering, port redirection, etc.) Also got it for a good price on eBay auctions. Replaced a 10 year old Linksys with this and I'm happy with it so far. The Linksys was so old that no more updates were being released and there were a few features I needed and couldn't get. Also using this in tandem with an Apple Airport Extreme. The APE is good for my Mac and IOS devices and serving as a TimeMachine server.
Excerpt: I recently bought the router made by netgear to replace my old one. I haven't seen much of an improvement except for that it doesn't do the problems that my old one had because it was old most likely. It was easy to set up but I didn't make it like that. All you have to do is plug it in and set up a password basically. Then you can add more stuff. It's easy to set up.
Excerpt: I have been using this router for about 6 months right now and I like it. I do have problems now and then with not being able to connect and I have to reset it but I had a beklin before and seemed to have more problems with that one so if you don't mind reseting it now and then this was a good router!
