I got this router to go with our new satellite service. After the dish and modem were in place, I went to hook up the router. Things went well until I got to the step "power on the router". It didn't power on. After a second try, I called tech support.I quickly reached "Angel". Not having to go through a long phone tree and not having to wait very long was the first pleasent surprise. Angel told me to use a paper clip and press the hidden "reset" button for two minutes. After that, the router l ... it up. At this point I assumed the call would end...problem solved. But, no, Angel stayed on the line, walking me through provisioning the router, and then made sure that my desktop could reach the internet, and then kept on going to make certain my laptop also was set.So customer service gets a HUGE A+ from me.And how does the router work? Invisibly, just like it's supposed to. No hic-ups, no glitches, full speed ahead. All our computers (three: my wife has... More >

I bought this router for my parents so that they could use their new iPad 2. It was very simple to setup, and I got it working in less than 5 minutes. Right out of the box I plugged it into the cable modem, plugged in the AC adapter, and loaded the CD that came with the router. I followed the simple instructions, and viola, the iPad was connected to the internet in no time. The range is solid, and could probably be better if I put it in a better place (right now its on just a shelf that is kinda ... low), but they get 2 bars in their living room which is 70 feet away and 3 walls.I only set it up yesterday, but so far so good. Its not being used as a repeater or range booster, so I can't comment on the use of that. But for what my parents use it for, it perfectly suits their needs. More >

I have the previous version of this N150 and it worked well. Got this one and was a breeze to set up (if you're computer-literate). It connected easily to my iPhone and laptops. I only plan on using to stream some videos and mostly work so I needed something solid and consistent. Not worried about high speeds. Don't plan on doing any intense gaming or downloading multiple things at one time. With my isp (Comcast) I am getting 65mbps using this router..plenty for what I need. I will update if the ... re are any connection problems. Hope this helps.UPDATE: There have been no connection problems and router is doing a great job. All my devices (iPhone, iMac, HP Laptop, Macbook) all connect with no problems. This is a great budget router that will get the job done for the average household. It's perfect for my needs. Changed rating from 4 to 5 stars. More >

HelloI've been using routers for several years now. This is probably my 4th router. I usually go with Netgear, and with good reason. They usually work well and don't constantly need to be reset. However, I have had issues with one router in the past. Now that I have used this router for slightly over a year, I decided to write a review about it.First off, the ease of setup is remarkable. You take it out of the box. You put the cd disc in, it shows you the step by step process, and now you are d ... one. Ready to go. I have mine hooked up to Clear, which is a 4G network.I have multiple laptop users in the house, as well as a Wii and a ps3. The router works well for every system. I haven't had issues with losing connection with my video games, nor have I experienced inability to detect network from the laptops. Lastly, some routers need to be constantly reset because the signal fades in and out. With this router, I haven't experienced that yet (knock on wood)... More >

Customer Video Review Length:: 6:31 MinsI bought this modem to replace the horrid Cisco-Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless-G Broadband Router Cisco-Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless-G Broadband Router I bought and returned, I made a review about that horrible router as well with video showing some problems.This modem is very small but big on reliability! I was worried about its performance because I never used a Netgear before, but I'm glad it didn't disappoint me!This router is so simple to setup and has plenty o ... f guides to help you plug things in for the novice and it also has the admin information right on the router along with username and password in case you ever forget what it is if you ever reset router, just be sure to change the username and password for security reasons! I also got the router working with my connection straight out of the box with no configuration! Truly plug and play! You can view that in my... More >

While it seemed to work well at first, the router persistently gets into a state where it won't give out DHCP addresses. Any devices I have that use static addresses seem to work fine and it maintains its wireless network and WAN connection, but anything that gets its address via DHCP is off the network.This can happen any time from a few hours to a few days after it's been powered up. Every time this happens I have to reset the router to get it to work again for my DHCP devices. And yes, I hav ... e the latest firmware for this router (as of January 23, 2010).I'd return the router whence it came, but I ignored my own good habits and threw the box away right after I bought it. It's now sitting on my basement shelf waiting for salvation, but at this point I'm not too confident about it. A little Google work will find similar complaints by other users, and this has been going on for a while. More >
