Summary: Start with everything powered off and unplugged and you will be ahead of the game. I couldn't get the router to recognize the modem since I didn't do a full power down at first. Once I powered down everything and followed the sequence of powering up the modem for 2 minutes, the router for 1 minute...
Summary: My wife and I have had this for about 2 months now and couldn't be happier. Installation was a breaze. We have Vonage internet phone service and replaced an old router that Vonage sent when we signed up with this and a new phone portal.
Summary: I've dealt with several different types of wireless routers, so I wasn't expecting a lot of problems with this Netgear router. Fortunately, I was not disappointed. The set-up and configuration was a snap, and I had wireless internet ready to go in just a couple of minutes.
Summary: I bought this router to use as a wired access point for a Tivo HD. The price was reasonable ($59) and I didn't have to worry about 47 different versions of firmware and production dates and series numbers, etc..
Summary: This router is very good out of the box with DD-WRT. Just be aware you'll need to download an alternate version. See the download section of [...] . Tomato firmware is a bit iffy, but there is a release on the above site that works for most people with a few minor.
Summary: After a typical guy approach to setting this product up...in other words I skimmed through the directions and then spent about 12 hours trying to figure the error of my ways.... Please Please...follow the instructions carefully and you will be so happy with the final outcome.
Summary: A couple of things: First this router appears to be the same as the Netgear WGR614v8 according to the label on the router. This means that this router is more expensive because it has 'can run open source firmware' on the box. Buy a WGR614v8 and save some money.
Summary: I bought this router in order to run custom firmware because I was sick of dealing with featureless and for the most part unstable firmware that is provided by router manufacturers. I loaded up DD:WRT v24SP2 on this and it is completely stable.
Summary: I have a lot of walls to go through between my base unit and remote unit. The netgear series has done a great job in delivering high speed wireless connection. Originally, I got the linksys series which just proved to be worthless for my situation.
