5 out of 5 eggsGood Speed - Great Signal

Pros: Plugged in, reset cable modem and I'm on the internet. No disk or manual needed unless you are a total n00b. Go to 192.168.1.1 in the web browser, type admin as username and password as password and you are in (just like every netgear wireless router). The interface is faster than my previous netgear, the speed is better, more features, a guest network and the signal is outstanding. It comes with the vertical stands (little white clippy things) and the famous yellow netgear ethernet cable (6ft) and the little power supply that plugs in horizontally on a wall outlet. The led lights were nice and dim just the way I like it. The 2 blue led's in the dome are configurable for wifi activity, guest network activity, parental controls or bandwith usage. You can also turn them off. I could not be happier, I think I might buy some more.

Cons: This router does not come with a DVD video and colorful book for n00bs on how to install and configure it. The previous netgear of the same class had more than just 2 led's in the pretty dome that were way more pretty to stare at.

Other Thoughts: I set my wireless to a channel, usually 7 and then select the wireless speed to "up to 54mb". No matter which wireless router I get, the wireless N makes the router "act up". If you have trouble with the router, set it to 54mb and pick a channel in the wireless options. My cable internet speeds max out at 50mbs throughput so I won't be benefiting from anything over 54mb per second anyway. I get 4 - 5 bars of signal strength all the way across the house and there is a brick fireplace, plumbing in the way, it does not affect the signal and the wireless speed is full speed. No packetloss. I hope the wireless router stays this way, it's the best one I have ever owned.

Pros: I bought this more than two years ago and it gets the job done.

Cons: Occasionally it acts wacky and I have to turn it off and back on again. Nothing too bad.

5 out of 5 eggsOldie but Goodie

Pros: I install these all the time on the side as a Hughesnet internet installer. Always work, never a complaint and I make a decent profit.

Cons: normally I like to get N300's for about the same price and resell them as much better than the cheaper N150's but the Netgear name and the model name "RangeMax" more than compensate.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy setup options for router

Cons: can't connect wirelessly

Other Thoughts: I had no problems setting up my router if I had a cat5e plugged into it, but as soon as I tried to use my wireless I couldn't connect to it, even though I could still connect to a neighboring wireless network with no problems.

4 out of 5 eggsWireless signal drops often but I found a fix

Pros: Cheap, easy to set up, fast given it's a cheap router.

Cons: Older technology doesn't let you maximize 150 mbps on wifi.

Other Thoughts: It sets up fine but then will tend to drop the wifi signal to your wireless devices. Wired devices work fine, no issues there. I had to drop the WiFi setting to "up to 54mbps" from the stock "up to 150 mbps". The router can't seem to handle more than 6 to 10 connected devices at that speed, whether they're wired or wireless. Once I dropped the wifi speed to 54 mbps the wifi drops stopped. Hope this helps anyone who's experiences this issue like I did.

2 out of 5 eggsShaky at best

Pros: Good price when I got it. $19.95

Cons: Product failed within 6 months use. Manufacturer only warranties their refurbished products for 90 days. I thought a refurbished product was supposed to bring the product to repaired condition plus perhaps a few scratches or dings. Netgear's lost my business

Other Thoughts: Go with Linksys or a better brand.

1 out of 5 eggsWireless signal drops often

Pros: Cheap price and fast when wifi is working!

Cons: Drops wifi signal to all devices periodically, like 3x per hour.

Other Thoughts: If the wifi signal was stable I'd give it 5 stars. It must be some inherent issue with this model because many here have experienced the same thing. Wired it's great, but there's a reason I got a wireless router. Different firmware versions don't fix the wifi drops. Seems like some design or hardware functionality issue. Too bad because it's a great router otherwise.

3 out of 5 eggsCheap and it works for a while

Pros: Affordable, Good looks, No antenna sticking out of it's back, Easy setup with IP address/browser, Good range

Cons: Capacitors deteriorate after about two years of usage and router will eventually fail!

Other Thoughts: This is our second NetGear router and owning this one for about 2 years now, I am having second thoughts about this brand. The first router started making some hissing, static sound which gradually got louder and louder, Finally it failed functioning all together. This one is still working, but a few months ago started making the same weird sound. I did some quick research and turns out that it's capacitors are failing and this is a common issue with NetGear. Some folks fixed theirs by opening the unit and replacing the failed capacitors. This is something I am not willing to perform. Just buy another brand for a lill more.
