  • Pros: Cheap, small, doesn't generate a lot of heat.
  • Cons: Range is absolutely horrendous. Could barely even reach adjacent rooms, and forget about going from 1st to 2nd floor.

disappointing

Steve S., Newegg
11 May 2012
  • Summary: This may have been a bad refurb; I don't know. This particular unit did not always save settings. It would work for a while and then stop. Some configuration changes would cause the unit to stop responding to all requests and need a reset. I gave up and bought something else.
  • Pros: Price and interface.
  • Cons: Flaky and not dependable, needs resets often.

  • Cons: Fails after 24 hours. Fails to DHCP. I upgraded firmware and tried it on a different network. No service from anybody. DON'T BUY THIS ONE.

Bad Refurb.

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: It's rare that I have a refurbish product arrive DOA (or essentially DOA), but this one was a dud. The lights were on (literally) but nobody home.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Refurbished, package arrived without setup CD or documentation. None of my PCs could connect to any of the default addresses for the device for "no CD" installation, factory reset did not help.

Thanks for Fake Advertisements

TAT H., Newegg

  • Summary: My old router is 100mbps and it doesn't even lag like this. I dont think i'll ever buy cheap refurbished/recertified products again because it's too much of a gamble and the incorrect labeling This piece of hardware is at least 6 years ago, that's why it's so cheap The real product is correctly...
  • Pros: cheap price
  • Cons: This router not only lags but it can't even stream a small 212MB video. Newegg needs to stop using fake advertisment saying it's a gigabit! Maxspeed is only 100mbps even though it even reaches 100mbps even if it did, it'll do so for a split second

Good router for the Price, but ...

  • Summary: If you want the manual and installation guide for this unit, they can be found at Netgear's web page. The info for this model isn't easy to find, but, with a little persistence, you'll get them.
  • Pros: Router works as advertised, is easy to set up(assuming you've downloaded the manual). I bought one as a spare for my current router and one to use as a relay. However, things didn't turn out that way(see cons).
  • Cons: If you plan to use this as a relay to another part of your building, be aware that the wireless link between routers needs to be either unencrypted or encrypted using WEP. It won't work with WPA or WPA2. To me, running either unencrypted or with WEP is simply and invitation for someone outside yo...

lucky if you had a year

  • Summary: My old one also died after a year, at that point it had to be rebooted a few times a day or hour. I found the setup easy so I purchased the same model. However the reboot problem occurred immediately with the new one.
