First of all, the item that i bought was SMC Barricade(TM) WBR14-G 2.4GHz 54Mbps Wireless Broadband Router. The seller descibed that it's matching NetGear WGR614, but as you can see those are a different items.
The item arrived in excellent condition and in time. The problems started when i unpacked and assembled it. First of all, the router itself is SMC made, it's antenna was D-Link made and a desciption was for a NetGear. Strange a bit, doesn't it? Nevetheless, it seemed to work.
After i had connected it, i found out that the seller didn't provide a login password for it. But with a little help from Google, i had found out that the default password is smcadmin, and it worked. So finally, i'm in.
The features and definition options of the router are quite sophisticated and advanced, but easy to configure and understand. With every option there is a couple of explanation rows that say what it suppose to do. The menu is very friendly and simple.
When i tried to configure L2TP connection, i found out that it didn't exist in the current firmware version, so i downloaded a newer one (or so i thought) from www.smc.com (manufacturer site). I had updated it with no problems at all, and L2TP option appeared. But when i tried to configure it, i was recieving an "setup error 2!" error all the time, no matter what i had added or changed. I contacted the ebay seller and parallely wrote an e-mail to SMC customers support. The customer support hadn't returned to me with an answer, but the seller really did an exellent job troubleshooting the problem and sent me a link for a newer firmware version. After i had updated it, the L2TP connection worked and i could enjoy finally enjoy it.
The WAN option in the router works smoothly (i don't have to dial up to my internet provider anymore!), but the wireless has some problems. First of all, i couldn't get an excellent reception via wireless even if my laptop was a meter away from the router. I tried to configure it differently many times, i had changed the channel from default 6 to 11 (after reading some discussions about it on web). It slightly improved, but not dramatically. I think that the problem might be in that "D-Link" antenna...
router came overnight and was complete with all cables and CD. worked perfectly and was easy to setup. blue ray connected to internet with no problem. for the price that i paid for this router it was a steal. I recommend this router to anyone that's looking into setting up a wireless system.
3rd one that I have purchased, best quality for low price!
connection is good Can hook up to devices although never used more than 17. From my 3rd floor apartment can rich up to 50m when I'm outside.
Only bad with concrete walls, has bat signal. Bought it because it is one of the Best Selling model !Never got unsatisfied, had used other models of NetGear and other brands, this is the best for the price so far.
Easy setup, I downloaded the owner's manual from the web. Rated a 4 because I have only been using it for a week, if it lasts a year it's a 5.
Wireless networks are rapidly replacing wired computer connections because of the range and freedom they provide. Wi-Fi hotspots that were once limited to coffee shops and hotels are now common in homes,...
