"A Total Scam"on by Komotez
Pros Set up for the first time fairly quickly
Cons Everything else
Summary I set up this product initially and it worked for a few days with no hassle whatsoever, upon physically disconnecting the device and re-connecting it for the first time, my PC behaved as if it had never seen the device before. I figured i had better uninstall the drivers and reinstall and everything should be okay. However it was not, this time around the device would not even be detected by windows, thinking this was a problem with the PC , i tried the device on my laptop which would not detect it either. The only conclusion i can draw is that the device is broken less than a week after purchase and after only being re-connected to the pc a few times.
Pros don't know, haven't been able to set it up
Cons the basic help number did not help me at all, the advanced help number is a joke you have to pay for, the people running the e-mail center have not answered to any of my complaints, the set up is complicated, the ethernet connection will not stay on throu
Summary A cheap and utterly useless piece of junk. I wasted money on this. I lost the receipt so my only means of getting rid of this is donating it.
"I'm returning it"on by mydro1
Pros Haven't got to any yet.
Cons No MAC Installation Guide. Installation instructions are frustrating, lacking in important information, & difficult to follow.
Summary I'm returning it.
Pros I bought this router @ frys a couple weeks ago as an alternative to the monopolized router the cable company was leasing me, and i must say its working great. great for wi-fi with it push to connect, and great for networking printers and other cpu's.
Cons the only con i have, is that it doesnt have a long enough range of coverage to reach out into my back yard. Not ideal for a two story home because of again the Range.
Summary this net gear wnr1000 is a great beginers router as it was a breeze to set up. It provides enough productivity to over shadow its lack of range. great for a single story home, and great for a 2-3 cpu network set up with printer sharing. not ideal for huge homes, two story homes, or if you desire your wi-fi to reach out into your back yard( wich in itself isnt such a bad thing, that way you wont get hacked). AWESOME buy for it's price.
Pros Seemed easy to set up and use.
Cons Broke down after only 10 months of use.
Summary Because the router broke down after the 90 day warranty, Netgear required the purchase of a $100 extended warranty before they would even discuss what might be wrong and try to fix it. After paying the money, I spent about 2.5 hours struggling with a barely competent tech from a foreign call center and we never did get the router working. In the end, a new router will be purchased and I'm out the cost of the Netgear and the extended warranty. We will be finding a different brand to buy.
