The latest wireless standard is 802.11n or wireless n. Routers and modem routers that use this are 600% speedier and give a much more stable connection than the old 54Mbps or wireless g equipment most retailers will still try to sell you.

i got one of these free from virgin, works a treat

The spec for this only lists 2.4 GHz. Surely the main selling point of 802.11n is the 5 GHz operation which avoids clashes with everything else on the 2.4 GHz band.

600% speeder... than what?

Don't these just support "N" wireless networking and are not backwards compatible with "G".

So you're saying this router is 600% speedier than a 54Mbps wireless? :whistling:

I have this router - very good bit of kit

If you have a Wireless N laptop, then yes this is faster than having my Wireless N laptop connecting to a 54mbps wireless router:)

You just looking to argue for the sake of arguing?:p

Voted hot as i have one of these and paid £20 more than this:oops:

This is a good price but a poor piece of kit imo!
#12
Poor reviews for this iirc.
#13
Good price but the reviews are mixed, not sure if I should take the plunge.

have the model above, wnr3500 and its great.
its a gigabit router, easy to setup and works great on virgins 50mb.
recommend most netgear products

I'm on my third one of these confounded things. The first died in a "pooof" of smoke - just glad I was at home! The second was intermittently crashing (had to keep rebooting it). Even this latest replacement has locked up twice.

This has seriously annoyed me as I've always given praise to Netgear equipment. Not any more :(

My advice would be to go shop for something else.

In the interests of balance, I've had one of these from VM since the 50 meg launch and it's never been rebooted. I use it on the 2.4GHz band for legacy stuff plugged into my Airport Extreme on 5GHz.

So...mixed (at best) reviews on Amazon, poor reviews in this thread and the deal keeps getting hotter:thinking:

I'm after a replacement for my DG834GT but wouldn't touch this given the reviews.

So, are you ignoring the 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon then?

I'm not saying its speedier than anything.

You asked '600% speedier....than what?' which was obviously a bit of a pi$$ take, or did you not read the OP's description?

I simply copied the relevant part of the OP's description which states quite clearly what he/she thinks its speedier than, and answers your question.

By all accounts it IS quicker and I can only presume that the OP has worked out the % difference ?

You want to query that % difference?
Then ask the OP.

Me too. Not that the 834 has missed a beat, but if I have to spend many more hours trying to persuade it to let HTTP traffic thru to my NAS, I may just go insane. I've done it before is the most annoying thing, but can't replicate. Anyway, I digress...

Sounds like a good price, and usually get more negative reviews than positive as people who're happy can't be bothered, however too much uncertainty for me I suspect... waiting for something bullet proof.

on the basis that the good reviews are far outweighed by poor reviews. then yes I'm ignoring the few good reviews.

Hardly far outweighed. Looks like the 1 star problems could have been resolved by trying different channels as they all seem to be interference/range issues.
#25
Got one from Virgin and from I can gather its okay for most things although with 50MB it's shocking...reboots required constantly when downloading at 50MB......cold

Of the 19 reviews the distribution was;

5* 3
4* 3
3* 2
2* 3
1* 8

Given this is a Netgear product, I'm surprised to see any reviews below 3*, and I'm not prepared to gamble £40 of my money on the basis that you believe the problem was with the way folk configured the box.

Had the Amazon reviews been 3*+ and it had better reviews in this thread then I'd have bought this.
#27
Generally poor reviews and you can get better for cheaper, eg http://www.ebuyer.com/product/149878.

I bought this one last week with low expectations due to the price but it has really impressed me. I only have wireless-n 150 at the moment (still waiting on the 300 cards for the laptops) but I get ~140mbs upstairs in the bedrooms.
#28
Nice feature of this router for parents is that you can set it up for use with openDNS for excellent parental controls.

Does it have gigabit lan?

I'm pretty sure its megabit lan.

I've got one of these and I also have to reboot the device at times.
I'll find I can access the admin page on the router, but it won't let me access the internet until I restart it. Having said that, the last two routers I had did the same thing (a Linksys WRT54G2 and a DrayTek Vigor 2100VG before that).

Don't know if its of use to anyone else but I occasionally check out the Wireless Charts on smallnetbuilder.com to get an idea of performance.
They also have a review of the WNR2000 on there too.
#31
I have this from Virgin and it is awful. Often drops out and I get loads of interference from neighbouring networks (despite apparently being 802.11N) No external aerial so the reception is pretty poor too especially from the other end of my house.
Not a patch on my old trusty DG834GT I used to have before moving to cable. If I wasn't moving house soon and having to ditch cable I would definitely replace it.

Avoid.
#32
Looks great for the money. However I had one of these - paid 40 quid (off ebay) for it new. The router dropped wireless every time I plugged something else into a wall socket in the house. I rebooted it on average 3 times a day, and it lasted a paltry 4 months before dying a very undignified death..

Maybe I had a lemon, but every Netgear I've bought suffered the same fate, constant reboots, then a power issue killing it. It was excellent on features/admin, a great speed bump too compared to my previous Linksys, but unfortunately this speed bump was carried over to its lifespan.

You can get a gigabit (white) version for under 40 quid too, but don't be tempted.

Get a D-Link instead, here speaks the voice of experience, I've not had to reboot that for about 3 months with no issues whatsoever, and I'm a heavy user. Worth the extra.

Just my two penneth.

Try installing the DGTeam firmware, lets you mess with the SNR to speed up your connection slightly (at the expense of some stability).

With mine I've put it into "Modem Only" mode, then picked up the WRT160N deal from the other day. Flashed the WRT160N with DD-WRT, then plugged the modem-only DG834GT into the WAN port of the WRT160N then used the much more reliable (and sophisticated) features of DD-WRT to control network traffic.
