Didn't buy this from amazon becuase I found it somewhere else for £40 on a clearance sale. Originally, I was going to buy a Linksys and was a bit hesistant about this one becuase of the overheating issues with another Netgear model. Other reviews said that you had to follow the set up instructions to the letter. Well, I took their advice and did exactly what it said on the instruction sheet and it was up and running in about 10 minutes.
The user interface for the router is very well set out. There is column on the right hand side which tells you exactly how every option works, which I thought was brilliant as I had never touched wireless before. It explains how to set up your security and a lot of the advanced featues, which I actually havent bothered with. I am using the 54mbps mode becuase the built in wireless in my laptop does not have the speedbooster technology. Therefore I was expecting the range to cover only half of my house, but to my astonishment I got almost full signal all round the house and getting download speeds as though it was wired.
However, the connection has dropped once or twice in the two weeks that I have had it so far, but this comes part and parcel (apparantly) with buying wireless and it was only for a few seconds so my laptop reconnected straight away. It looks sleek and is very compact. It comes with a stand if you want to have it upright, but I keep it tucked away in a corner of my computer desk.
Being new to wireless I have not had experiance of other products, but I have set up a lot of other computer peripherals and this product is definitly at the top of my list in terms of ease of set up.
As of yet I have not has heat issues witht the product, if you fell it after a few hours of use, it is warm but not hot as people have said woth other Netgear products.
Can't really fault it ... yet.
