Excerpt: I had a friend buy me this from Fry's Electronics and set it up for me since I am a little technically challenged. I use it at home and it is a very reliable router. I maybe have to reset it (just unplug and replug in) only 1 x every 4-5 months. It works well and I havent had any problems with it so far in the 2 + years I have had it. It was also affordable!
Excerpt: We bought this router because it wasn't the cheapest one on the market, made by a reputable brand, was wireless, and has data encryption. For about a year it worked great, now certain devices can't seem to connect or take a long time to connect to the router. It frequently loses connectivity. When the router was brand new it connected quickly and the data transfer rate was fast. It's a great little router for the price, but I wouldn't recommend it for constant, 24/7 use.
Excerpt: This is the best router I've ever seen or bought. I started off with something a little cheaper but I couldn't even get it to install. So I took the other one back and got this netgear. When I installed it, it went really fast and was very east to set up and use.
Excerpt: The router came with a step by step manual with pictures.I Found it to be very easy to follow and get set up. It was also reasonably priced. I used it for my laptop and printer. I also have it connected to the desk top. If you are computer challenged, I would recommend this router. You should be up in running in about 20 min. I myself have had it for four months now and have had absolutely no problems.
Excerpt: I have had this for three years, and while no major problems with it, sometimes my laptop could not sense it. This has led to interruption of Internet service. At times, I thought of changing the router, but only stayed with it because of the cost. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Excerpt: We bought this router a few years back after a storm fried our old one. After a (very) slightly complicated set-up, we were up and running in no time. The only REAL issue we had with this, was that we had to change the settings so that the connection wouldn't go out every time the phone rang. Other than a few minor hiccups, we really haven't had any problems with it!
Excerpt: This Netgear wireless router really disappointed me. I bought it less than a year ago from Best Buy, and had specifically asked for an easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to understand wireless router. I was assured by the employees that this Netgear router would meet my needs perfectly. Unfortunately, it was neither easy to set up/understand nor easy to use.
Excerpt: I never thought I would ever look for this type of equipment, but here I am using a wireless router so I can use my laptop in the comfort of my love seat. Sure makes a difference from sitting at the computer desk and never truly ever getting comfortable. with the use of this router, I am free to move anywhere in my house and outside in my yard anywhere, never loosing my internet service.
Excerpt: It's like this, if you're reading this review, you are most likely reading it online. So are you on a desktop or a laptop? This router is the on must have techie device in all households that have the world wide web coursing through their wiring. While I am not qualifed to get into the whole psk, wep security thing, I will admit that I am quite happy with what I have.
Netgear is easy to use, but needs some improvement
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I purchased this netgear for use as my home network. Very simple, a desktop, laptop, netbook and a wireless printer. The setup was very easy - the instructions were well written and east to follow. It worked great for about two months. We lost our power during a storm and when it was restored, the wireless router would only work if you plugged in an ethernet cable. Not what I expected when I purchased it. I tried the troubleshooting, online support and phone support.
