I needed to get a router so my dad could have wireless internet on his small netbook. So i just got this model it was well priced when I bought it and it done the job it needed to do. But now that i have had it for over a year Iam amazed at what else it has been used for apart from my Dads small netbook. The router is only a wireless G router. So you can have wireless internet in any room if you have a small house but if you want wireless internet in the garden then you will need a stronger router. However for me I have been able to connect my Nintendo wii and Playstation 3 wirelessly which are both in the room above the router. ... Read the complete review

When we first 'splashed out' and got wireless internet within the house, we had a Belkin router - we soon regretted it. Within a month we were on the lookout for another router due to poor signalling and general unreliability. We got our Netgear router from Amazon, for £50. Why so much I hear you say? Other reviews state a much lower price? Well, we decided to get the joint package of wireless router, and wireless adapter. Our laptop had a built in adapter, but unfortunately our PC did not, so we needed both. And as usual, it was cheaper to buy as a set, rather than separately. We found the Netgear router and adapter very easy to install indeed ... Read the complete review

I hope you find this review useful because I was so confused when it came to me buying a router for my room at uni! Mine is the WGR614 version not the L open source version (though im not sure what the difference is!) Mine has all the technical information as stated including the 4 port USB. I bought this for £29.99 from currys it was also this price in PC world but they had none when I went to get one. I bought this as my tech savvy flatmate had and recommended it as a good buy. Setup: I found it very easy to set up. It come with a disk that you pop into your computer and it guides you through the process and shows you ... Read the complete review

On our package for Virgin Broadband we got this wireless router free. I was quite happy as I had used Netgear products before and been quite happy overall. This router was easy to set up once I got it out of the box. It has a 4 point switch for your Ethernet cable - the cable you connect to the modem and router - so it can be stretched far apart from the modem. Once on, it flashes green on the "On" button, the "test" button light is in the shape of a tick and will turn green once everything is set up and working. It works with Windows Vista, which I have on my laptop and comes as Windows Vista certified so that you know with a ... Read the complete review
