  • Summary: This product might be good but I wouldn't know because it would not work with my computer. The instructions were not clear, there were too many steps and nowhere does it say it is not compatible with Windows 7 the only reason I knew that was probably the issue was after I had been struggling to get it to work and looked it up on my phone.

lucky if you had a year

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • 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: I bought this Oct 2008. Worked good up until last month. Router went down. I called tech support only for them to tell me that the hardware is warranty for 1yr but software warranty (which tech support is covered under) is only warrantied for 3 months. The phone tech support is a one time charge of $36.00 but the oneline tech support is free. With the online you have to email tech support. They can take up to 24hrs to get back to you.

Do not waste your money!

lyndsytippetts, Viewpoints
6 March 2009
  • 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.
