This is a nice piece of gear because it saves having to get a wireless hub and router separately, which frees up the 4 ports for just computers, and eliminate extra wires and boxes and power cables.
Router:
A great feature of this particular router is that it can email you activity logs which show what websites were visited on that day through the router. You can also block access to websites or any site that contains a keyword, so this could be useful in small office and home (children) use. (By viewing the website activity logs, you can find out which sites to block so that next time the user tries to go there it will say "blocked by netgear" and you will be notified of the attempt.) You can also lockout times and dates.
This Router does NOT have a firewall built in- even though this box looks like the netgear firewall router (the one for the same price without the integrated wireless hub).
Wireless hub-
Average range. Security wise, you can set it up with 128 bit WEP and with MAC Address authentication, which secures your network to a reasonably safe level. ALSO MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE THE ADMIN PASSWORD FOR THIS ROUTER, AND FOR ANY ROUTER.
Cons: The antenna can not be changed or removed. The unit is not designed to be hung from a wall like the SMC wireless hub. (WHY would you do that? To get better wireless range).

THE UNIT
The unit itself, like all netgear products, is metal and a nice dark hue of blue, with several blinking indicator lights. I am happy with my one, which uses a DSL connection with static IP address to feed 4 computers and two wireless laptops.

I bought this to replace my D-Link DI-701 router/firewall, which set-up very simply. To be blunt, Netgear's instructions are worthless - in fact it took me several hours to determine that ALMOST ALL of the settings they provided for my ISP were WRONG. On the positive side, the web-based configuration is great and can be done from most platforms.
Once I sorted out the settings for my ISP, it was a breeze to setup for basic routing (NAT & DHCP) and firewall use. The 4 switched ports are WONDERFUL, so I used 3 for 100mb access PCs and put all the 10mb machines on a hub on the 4th switch port. This box is an absolute block-out firewall. You must be prepared to specify which ports you want open and hard-code the IP address for that particular machine.
Wireless setup was for a Powerbook G4. Again, basic setup was simple, but it wouldn't work with WEP enabled. (Don't call tech support: they know NOTHING about Macs.) Here's the scoop: select and enter 4 different WEP codes where provided, click the radio button of the one you want to be the default. When logging in from the Mac, the "password" will be a "$" followed by the default HEX WEP key. Once you know the scoop, it's really that simple. This should be in the documentation and available to their techs.
Security considerations:
(1) Change the configuration password to something difficult, immediately.
(2) Don't open more firewall holes than absolutely necessary (you may not need to add ANY and most software companies can tell you what ports they need).
(3) Consider using the site blocking option of the firewall to block access at times when nobody should be on the system.
(4) Block wireless access to all except the MAC ID's of your mobile units.

I have installed three of the linksys wireless routers and four of the Netgear. From now on, I'm pushing the Netgear 314. It's fast Easy and it works with VPN. The only down side is it costs more. But it's worth it.
Let me put it this way. You won't need the instruction book with the Netgear, And you will with the linksys....then you will curse the moron who wrote the Linksys book. As for Netgear's Customer support. it's great. If you call the 866 tech support at linksys, they take your name a call you the next day.
Pay the extra, save the hassle

Ahh yes. After fumbling with a Linksys router and the Speedstream by Siemens (CNET Editor's Choice), I have finally settled with a REAL quality unit. Netgear makes great stuff. I am using a wireless card for my laptop and the USB wireless device for my desktop, both Netgear.
Setup was all of 5 minutes - not a second longer. But most importantly, the Netgear device is dependable and has great range. My router is on the second floor of my 70 year old brick house (with 4x floor joists). Yet, I regularly use my laptop in the basement. The Linksys couldn't hang in terms of range, and the Siemens kept dropping connection randomly.
The Netgear is bulletproof. Don't waste your time with anything else. And for that matter, stick with Netgear cards especially if you're running Win XP.

I bought this device after lots of good experience with NetGear products in the past. Running XP Pro on 2 Dell machines, a PC and a notebook. The wired connection to my PC has been problem free once the XP firewall was disabled. The wireless connection, however, is another story. I kept losing my internet connection on my notebook, but the wireless adapter was connected to the router with no problems. My first phone call to tech support led me to assigning a static IP address to my wireless connection on the notebook. this resolved the problem for about an hour, then I lost the internet connection again. The only way to re-gain it was to unplug and reset the router. My 2nd call to tech support was a disaster as the support "engineer" was rude, and un-intelligible through a thick accent. Not the best combination for a telephone tech-support. The bit that I could understand of his advice was that it was a Windows problem and I needed to contact MS for support. Another great moment in customer service. My 3rd call to Netgear solved the problem. The support guy was helpful, polite and knew what he was talking about. He advised me to upgrade the firmware and if I lost the connection again, to return the unit. No problems since the upgrade. So like I said if you have patience, you won't be sorry you bought this.
