  • Summary: This is our second Netgear wireless product, and both have the same problem: they lose their wireless connections. Several years ago I bought a Netgear wireless router; when it worked, it was fine. But it regularly lost the wireless connection.

  • Cons: Wall units seem to get very hot, very quickly

  • Excerpt: Um mein WLAN noch in die letzten Räume meines Hauses zu bekommen, hab ich mir den WXGB102 von Netgear bei computeruniverse.net für 110 Euro gekauft. Das WXGB102 ist ein Powerline Produkt mit dem man die Stromleitung des Hauses als Netzwerkleitung mit 10 Mbits Übertragung nutzen kann.
  • Pros: Guter WLAN Access Point, unterstützt WEP und WPA Verschlüsselung
  • Cons: Nur einseitiges Handbuch, sehr schlechte Support Hotline von Netgear, umständliche Konfiguration, hoher Preis
