Setup does not require a CD. Basic router at a basic price. The manual can be found online. While everyone hates setting up a router, I bought this one to use while visiting relatives. I hooked the cable up to my laptop and it automatically set the security key and was good to go for wireless.
Doesn't have all the features of more expensive models but most people don't use those anyway. Does support the newer bands. Internal antennae. No external as in other routers. Not sure how far the range is but for anywhere around the house, works fine.
If you buy this, I suggest downloading the PDF manual why you're waiting for it to arrive. But, within a couple of minutes it was set up. Not sure if it will support a home network or just connect wirelessly.
simple to use, understandable features - easy to bun proof in regard to wires, took only minutes to set up network. Has decent range. Product is good value for money.
Would recommend product to others.
It works - that is all I need any product to do!
Bought this router and it took me from 54 mbps to 130 mbps. Very fast and excellent range which I found was double my previous range. I also had a problem with my old netgear router where it would stream HD video over my PS3 or computer but this new one does with no problem. I would definitely recommended this router to everyone.
For the price this is the best router around and it gets even better when you get it below MSRP. I have purchased 3 of this model for myself and family. Simple setup with the ability to easily configure more advanced options. Netgear offers a lifetime warranty with this router, which results in better internal components that will outlast other routers that will fail after a few years.
This is a great little 'off the shelf' router. It uses the similar interface that prior Netgear products used, along with some great additional features.
Wireless Guest Network
MAC Filtering and so on.
Easy to use and configure after spending a couple of minutes in the menus. It's really great that the networking terms used have an explanation on the pages for reference.
My experience with WPS is minimal and that process seemed cumbersome - may have been my wireless network printer...
Am happy with the product thus far.
All I can really say is : excellent! good product and easy set up. Out of the box it only took about 3-4 minutes to plug in, set up, and start using. Not a problem since. Best price on Ebay after looking around at other places for a week. Needed an second home PC and this made it work very well.
This router is exactly what I needed for our home internet system. great price and fast service. I bought this router because it had to be compatible with Century Link and support vdsl2. It works great and I no longer have to rent Century Links router.
I have set up 2 of these routers for customers. I ussually use the web-based utility (not the CD for the router) and they are really easy to set up with both Cable and DSL. I did not try setting up any special filtering, just minor passkey wireless secutiry. Signal strength and range is pretty good for a router of this price. I've had experience with Linksys, D-linnk, Belkin, and US Robotics and Netgear or Linksys are the brands I personally use.
Simple, easy to setup, effective range for my large, victorian house. Has a "techie" look to it...as soon as I connected it to the internet and accessed it via the Firefox web browser, it connected to NetGear, found an update, and asked me if it could update itself. NICE feature...the "press to connect" works with my Nintendo Wii, Samsung Blu-Ray, 4-5 different notebook/wireless desktop cards...all around GREAT deal. It also has a 150-Mb/300-Mb option...150-Mb is "neighbourhood friendly" and is supposed to play better with competing wireless routers. I set it to 300-Mb and have had no issues.
One of the best routers I have used thus far, easy to set up and easy to use. I have used other routers that were just too complicated and too much to understand how to secure a wireless network. Also love the power button
