Netgear WGR614

Wells K., Newegg
9 October 2012
  • Summary: Might want to consider buying one a little more expensive but if you dont have the money you will be okay
  • Pros: Ive had this router for about 6 years or more and its been working good, easy to set up and signal gets around my house.
  • Cons: The internet sometimes drops and you have unplug the router then plug it back in and you have to do this multiple times. Wifi doesnt get anywhere outside of my house even if its right outside. Its not as fast as newer ones.

Not as advertised

daniel r., Newegg

  • Summary: Listing needs to be adjusted for the error. Can't all be accurate all the time I guess.
  • Pros: simple enough for an access point!
  • Cons: Not as advertised. I didn't look behind the listing on the egg since it said 4 gigabit ports in both the description and details. It's only 100mbps. Shellshocker was over-played in my head and I ordered it so fast in fear of missing out. Oh well, still good for repeating.

Fake ad

  • Pros: Price is very cheap. Working fine.
  • Cons: FALSE AD, please correct. There is no such "gigabit" apply to this router and the router itself does NOT mention any "gigabit" either.

Good Router w/ N Speeds, but NO DD-WRT Support

Nicholas C., Newegg
23 March 2011
  • Summary: I was looking for the WGR614v8 model to apply DD-WRT, but got the WGR614v10 model, which currently does not support DD-WRT. I suppose it's my own fault for not just doing a search on Newegg for "DD-WRT" and finding a cheap model with which to apply "DD-WRT" firmware.
  • Pros: The latest firmware from Netgear (v1.0.2.26) gives this decent N speeds, albeit capped at 150 mbs. Seems to be a reliable router, although it couldn't do what I needed it to.
  • Cons: Can't use DD-WRT, as this is the WGR614v10 model. I needed to use this as a client bridge to attach some wired devices in another part of my house. I should have just gone with a wireless router on Newegg that had DD-WRT support right in the product description.

limited lifetime

Neil N., Newegg

  • Summary: What? No hardware-firewall? I'm connected 24/7 with Windoze Firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware, and myNetWatchman. No problem.
  • Pros: It routes.
  • Cons: Got mine. Used the wireless once. I turned the radio Off, and used [wired] ethernet ports for two computers. Worked fine that way for a couple of years. Then, webpages started to take a long time to load. I wasn't happy, but I didn't know what was wrong. Then, it stopped working, and I finally ha...

gets the job done

PATRICK B., Newegg
9 December 2010
  • Summary: given the price, I'm satisfied with a 2 to 3 year lifetime
  • Pros: very easy to set up. good feature set, low price, you can access the admin page even before the WAN connection is valid, that's very handy.
  • Cons: I've had a number of these and they all seem to have a limited lifetime. I'm finding that I have to replace them after a few years even though I take precautions to keep them cool.
