Bought one of these to replace the standard router that comes with Sky broadband, having read the blurb on the box about it using MIMO technology to enhance range and reception. Was otherwise happy with the previous DG834G Sky had provided and have always favoured netgear network stuff for its ease of operation and reliability. Once I`d got my username and password out of the DG834G (no easy task, although that`s sky`s fault rather than netgear`s) set-up was as easy as I expected (ie nigh on automatic). Disappointed with promised increase in range and reliability though, really couldn`t see a great deal of difference to be honest. And those irritating flashing blue ... Read the complete review
