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. I tried 3 others but they all had the same problem so I switched to a Linksys model. The Linksys was harder to set up but hopefully it will work for awhile.

  • Summary: Netgear knows this router has a horrible problem where after a year it will just have to be constantly rebooted. They don't care and they will not help you. I had been a very long term customer ... not anymore.

  • 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.

  • Summary: So everyone knows that gadgets usually last about 4-5 years until they really start to "act up" and basically fail. Fun fact: Netgear charges you $35 to call them for help after their bogus 90 day warranty. I've never heard of anyone having problems besides hook up with the netgear products until they are a few years old.

Netgear WGR614 Wireless-G Router

Craig3582, Rate it all!
28 November 2008
  • Summary: I would say this is probably the worst router I have ever owned. When I left college and moved to a new apartment I picked this up for my new home wireless network. To follow with most of the other 1 star reviews, it consistently just stops broadcasting. The lights stay on and blink and show as if it is working, but the only way to get it going again is to just reset the thing by pulling the power out and plugging it back in.

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.
