Think twice before buying used routers

ar086097, Ebay
9 December 2009
  • Summary: i just ordered a brand new Linksys wireless router from Compuvest.i bought used NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router from Ebay and i am extremely dissatisfied with that. from beginning it was causing DNS problems and i have to reset that frequently which was very annoying. then after like one month of use it completely broke down, even i cant use that as regular switch. its garbage. so always buy product with warranty specially elecetronics. i hope this would help.

Do not waste your money!

  • Excerpt: Do not waste your money! I have purchased two of these Netgear Routers. Both died on me within about six months - one year. First off, the customer service was horrible. Everytime I called in for help I was given basic instructions and told it was my internet provider. Everytime I called my internet provider they troubleshooted and informed me it was the router having issues. This was frustrating.

If it fails, the support is awful.

  • Summary: If you can get it cheap, and it's not mission-critical, it might be OK. Otherwise, avoid.
  • Pros: When it worked, it was very good; easy to set up and easy to configure.
  • Cons: Netgear's so-called "tech support" is worse than a joke.

I used to love NetGear Products Until Now

zosorules1, Ebay
15 January 2007
  • Summary: I was always a HUGE fan of NetGear products until I purchased this WiFi Router (and I'm a network administrator, have a ton of experience with routers, switches, and WiFi Access Points). I had a WGR614 and for some reason it would periodically drop my internet connection when I used it with one of my laptops. Every other wireless device would work fine, but when I had the other laptop on my network, it would drop all of my connections.

Terrible. Avoid at all costs.

  • Excerpt: My bad luck is that this router failed after 6 months, too late for me to return it to the store.
  • Pros: pretty and cheap.
  • Cons: died after only 6 months, a warranty that doesn't provide any satisfaction.
