Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NETGEAR RangeMax Wireless Router (WNR1000-100NAS (G54/N150)) (Personal Computers)
I've been using routers for several years now. This is probably my 4th router. I usually go with Netgear, and with good reason. They usually work well and don't constantly need to be reset. However, I have had issues with one router in the past. Now that I have used this router for slightly over a year, I decided to write a review about it.
First off, the ease of setup is remarkable. You take it out of the box. You put the cd disc in, it shows you the step by step process, and now you are done. Ready to go. I have mine hooked up to Clear, which is a 4G network.
I have multiple laptop users in the house, as well as a Wii and a ps3. The router works well for every system. I haven't had issues with losing connection with my video games, nor have I experienced inability to detect network from the laptops. Lastly, some routers need to be constantly reset because the signal fades in and out. With this router, I haven't experienced that yet (knock on wood).
Basically, I just wanted to write a quick review that allows others to know what success I have had with this router after a year and change. Out of the many options, it is one of the better ones. Good luck

Yes, this review helped me narrow down my search for a new router. I particularly liked the fact that the reviewer included the number of digital devices being serviced through a single router. Important fact to know since many routers in this price range do not do well handling multiple devices. Thanks for your helpful insight.

I have a question. MY router would be set up in my office on the 2nd floor of my house. We spend a great deal of time in our basement. Is the range on this router good? Do you feel going through 3 floors of ceilings and walls would still receive a strong signal for 3 cell phones, 2 laptops and an iPad? Appreciate any help! Thanks!

Disk? Mine did not come with any disk. Just a sheet of paper with some quick and simple instructions. No disk.
