Most Critical Review

A+ to start...but then...

NETGEAR WGR614NAR G54 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g
NETGEAR WGR614NAR G54 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g

Pros: I'll start off by stating I love newegg.com, and this is the first time I've had a problem. I bought this router refurbed, and for about 5 months it worked ideally. It was up and running in minutes, it's sleek and has a GREAT Wi-Fi radius. (i could be outside my apartment, and on the front stoop and it was still connected)....but then....

Cons: ...it started dropping it's Wi-Fi signal intermittently. Problem with that is, if you have a Blackberry, or Laptop, and you're doing something (BBM, Call, e-mail...etc.), you have to wait for the reconnect. For the price, it's amazing, but be warned, a refurbished item, may not be up to par every time, and once you're past newegg's 30 Day Return Policy, it's yours to replace. (it doesn't come with a CD, because the setup is through the router itself)

Overall Review: All-in-all, I was happy with my purchase. For the 5 months, I had superior cooperation from this hardware, and not once did I curse at it. So, if 20 dollars is what it takes for peace of mind for every 5 months from a router, I'd/I'll do it again. The only reason I gave it 3 Stars instead of 4, is because it crapped out on me less than 6 months after buying it.
