2 out of 5 eggsNot very dependable

Pros: Worked well while it worked. Web interface is clean and offers extensive configuration options for a commercial offering.

Cons: Flaked out after 6 mos of use. Intermittent problems had me thinking I had ISP problems, finally narrowed it down to the router by loading DD-WRT on my old 54G which i swapped in.

Other Thoughts: Dependability is more important to me than faster wireless speed so I will be sticking with my 5 year old adhoc router for now.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks just fine

Pros: I dont know why you folks have problems with this router, I've used it for 2 years with 0 problems. I have several pcs connected as well as 2 ps3, and an occasional wireless item. I currently stream hd movies to 1 of the ps3's and have no problem with it.

Cons: its old.

1 out of 5 eggsGood.......when it works.

Pros: Very strong signal and secure.

Cons: after 4 months it bricked out, called my ISP and they told me I needed to reach the manufacturer, after calling them the first time, trying to tell them it was DEAD, they kept telling me to reinstall the firmware, even after I notified them I attempted such.

I made 5 calls in total, one of whom decided to become nasty with his language, none of which spoke comprehensible English, one woman even broke down into tears after I kindly asked to have mine simply replaced.

after getting nowhere with Netgear "Customer Support" I called my ISP back, and they stated this isn't a surprise and agreed to replace it, I didn't even open the replacement, I posted it for sale and it sold the next day, and I then ran out and bought a Linksys.

Other Thoughts: Don't pay a dime for their products, this is the 3rd faulty product I've purchased of this company, and it's 3 strikes and YER OUT.

This is by far the WORST experience I've had with this company, who has now outsourced what seems to be it's entire company away from America.

Save yourself the headache and buy an item from here that has better reviews.

I'm disappointed in this company, it used to be respectable.

1 out of 5 eggsThe good always die young

Pros: Very good range and speed when it worked

Cons: Occasionally dropped signal which can be a problem when streaming video on a TV or using a game console.

Other Thoughts: I really liked this router for the 2 or 3 weeks I owned it but then it inexplicably died. I lost my XBox Live connection, went to check the router, and it was gone... completely dead. I've read other reviewers say the same thing and should have listened. I had a good experience with my old Netgear WGR614, but it seems they just don't make 'em like they used to. Probably won't buy another Netgear again until they bring their quality control back up to an acceptable level. Not to mention that their customer service is light years away from improvement.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Quick and easy configuration through web interface. The only Pro here that I can think of other than the configuration was that was responsive and great to work with on the return.

Cons: Wireless signal drops, router would reboot itself.

Other Thoughts: I had read the reviews like many others and figured eh what the hell, it's a good price and I just love my NetGear GS108T gigabit switch. I bought this router to replace a Linksys WRT54G that I had for years and ran into an issue with a Dell PowerEdge 1750 I use as a personal mail server for myself. It would lock up the router when the IPV6 discovery protocol would go out and ask if there were any IPV6 nodes on the network. Long story short I replaced the router and just wanted a gigabit router. I configure it get it set up and wife and I would be on-line and it would just drop. Look in the logs and it shows it rebooted. I noticed there was a firmware update and updated the firmware with no luck. I looked into DD-WRT but noticed that it was a V1 hardware and was not supported. So I replaced it with a NetGear WNDR3700 that as of this writing a week later has run flawlessly.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointment!

Pros: I sure It would have performed well.

Cons: In this day and age, how could something ship with compatibility for only windows XP and Vista 32-bit, I am so irritated. Windows 7 was out over a year ago. The fact that Netgear has yet to update there software is flabbergasting. I called technical support and they walked me through the manual installation and that did not work either, the lady told me to call my ISP, but 7 seconds after connecting my old router the internet was up.

Other Thoughts: I am not happy AT ALL.

1 out of 5 eggsDrop connections

Pros: Powerful wifi, gigabit ethernet, generally very capable at distributing bandwidth.

Cons: Drops connections very easily, making this router essentially unusable. With computers it generally drops down to about 5mbps, where it continues to putter. With a network restart, it goes back up to 54, then drops back down in a few minutes. With an iPhone, the connection drops entirely and no data loads. This led to me having to purchase a new router to use with phone, using this one exclusively with an NAS.

Other Thoughts: Would never buy this router again. This is a documented problem with this router and no firmware updates seem to help. A shame, considering I invested a lot of money to buy this, with the hopes it would help my spotty network coverage.

5 out of 5 eggsReplaced G Stick with N stick; ZOOM!

Pros: Second followup review for this router. Replaced USB wireless-G stick I use for testing and as a spare with a wireless-N stick (and not from Netgear, either). As long as the OS supported the stick (and it has in Windows, Linux, even OS X SnowLeopard), it connected absolutely flawlessly. Despite it being single-band/single-radio, it always connected at 145 mbps (each direction) - while not full speed for N, it's still faster than wired 100 mbps Ethernet (and thus far from slow). The users reporting connection issues may be having compatibility issues (some chipsets in adapters do have issues with some router chipsets).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My only reason for replacing this router would be hardware failure or needing features it lacks - so far, it certainly does what I ask it to.

3 out of 5 eggsWired: Great Wireless: bad

Pros: Gigabit ethernet switch, easy to configure, repeater function

Cons: Wireless drops often.

Other Thoughts: Buy another model, I upgraded the firmware on this and it is still dropping my wireless connections as of 11/3/2010. I ended up connecting my old router as a wireless access point.
