Manufacturer's Description

The DG834PN RangeMax" MIMO-G Wireless ADSL Modem Router adjusts to interference and the physical barriers in your home to deliver up to 500,000 square feet of coverage. With RangeMax wireless dynamic connectivity there is no need to spend extra money on range extenders, repeaters and external antennas. There is also no need to throw away your older wireless devices. RangeMax is compatible with 802.11b, 802.11g and SuperG products and will boost their range and speed by up to 50%.Staying wirelessly connected in your home or office can be tricky, especially as your environment continually changes. For example someone with a cordless phone might walk between your primary wireless signal and your computer or a microwave oven might click on. This interference can cause a drop in wireless data speed or drop out altogether. The DG834PN RangeMax Wireless Router adjusts to interference and the physical barriers in your home to deliver up to 500,000 square feet of coverage. This means that with a WPN111 Wireless USB Adapter inserted, your computer or laptop will not be prone to loss of wireless speed or dropouts - ensuring continual high speed Internet and network access anywhere in your home or office

RangeMax is an advanced Smart MIMO (Multi-in, Multi-Out*) technology that uses seven internal antennas. The DG834PN RangeMax" MIMO-G Wireless ADSL Modem Router constantly surveys your home or office environment for physical barriers and interference: The RangeMax router adapts on the fly, adjusting the wireless signal to compensate for these performance blockers. For example; if you carry your laptop from the living room to the study, RangeMax automatically senses the change and selects from over 100 possible antenna configurations to deliver you the fastest, clearest connection! Everyone will enjoy consistently high-speed connections, everywhere in your house - no dropouts and no wireless dead spots.

Netgear ensures that every computer, laptop or console user connected to your wireless network can work and play safely. The DG834PN RangeMax" MIMO-G Wireless ADSL Modem Router comes with a double firewall, WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption and WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access, Pre-Shared Key) security. These security features add powerful safeguards against unauthorised usage.

Netgear's Smart Wizard makes the set-up of the RangeMax wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation process.

I have had my trusty old Netgear Wireless Router DG834PN and USB stick for a while and its great at connecting my home network (xbox 360, pc and laptop) with a fair connection speed which can vary from 36mb - 54/108mb.

It is very easy to setup, the support from netgear if you do have problems can vary from satisfactory to exceptional.

The downside of this router is that unfortunately this router operates at the same frequency and channels as my wireless PS3 controllers (even if you change channels there is still conflicts).

Meaning if you have a ps3 dont buy this, as it drops the connection every 5 minutes and the ps3 cannot detect upnp ports on this either (meaning you have to manually open the ports...)

If you stream video content between your pc and your X360, remember that this is "acceptable", but you would probably be better spending slightly more and investing in the netgear dg834n instead.

Overall it is a great wireless router with a easy setup wizard and very straight forward, and has served me well until I bought my ps3...
(Just dont buy this model if you have a ps3, other netgears are ok)

This system was simple to set up. Instructions were easy to follow and I was up and running in about 30 minutes - this includes installing the wireless adaptor.

One thing to look out for is the network connection within the PC. Mine was disabled so check yur hardware settings before installing.

As a Vista user I would like to chip in and say that I most heartily agree with previous reviewers. Installation is especially a doddle using the wizard software and - as has been previously mentioned - what an absolute and unexpected relief, no need to wait on the phone for ages wasting time and money seeking and (eventually) receiving help. In the past, I've had Linksys and Belkin units and each time it's been the same sorry old story :-(

Does exactly what it says on the tin!

Read the setup manual first and you should have no problems.
I spent a while on www finding out all my ISP's settings (VPI, VCI, Framing, Protocol etc) before starting - not that I know what all these mean!

Plugged the router in, told it to auto-setup, and off it went and came back with all the settings sorted, so didn't need all the detailed information.

Worth noting that the wireless can be turned off, so it can be used as an ADSL modem with 4 port Ethernet switch, if you want to go hardwired for your network.

It's quite expensive as a Modem/Router on its own, but with the USB2 wireless adapter included (£25+ to buy on its own), it becomes extremely competitive.

A couple of annoyances:
1) The blue flashing LEDs in the dome are very distracting, but can simply be turned off in the setup.
2) The included CD doesn't have the Reference Manual, but the Setup Manual which is on there, calls on it for setting your wireless security preferences (which lets face it is pretty important).
[similarly there are a number of Netgear documents listed at the end of the manual which are well worth reading, but again, are not included on the CD].
3) In the Reference Manual it is quite strong on the advantages of WPA security over WEP, but deosn't discuss WPA vs. WPA2. Guess the manuals are old (2005) and could do with an update [WPA2 is the way to go].

Gave this modem router three stars because I am not sure what a five star performance would be! It works - so far.
Set up for a lot of reviewers was a doddle. For me it was a pig. Took four hours of head scratching and plugging back in to my old modem to search the net for answers.
1. My browsers initially couldn't locate the router using the supplied address
2. The automatic setup wizard was supposed to locate my internet service provider and log on automatically. It didn't. I had to set it up manually. For any other Tiscali people be advised 1) the user login is your whole yourname@tiscali.co.uk and not (as suggested by the netgear manual) the initial bit yourname. 2) Tiscali's support pages on setting up a Netgear router was invaluable. Well done Tiscali.
3. Finally, got on the net with Firefox and got email working fine. But Internet Explorer kept showing a 403 Forbidden message and wouldn't show any internet pages. Eventually after trawling through the Netgear support pages I found that I needed to untick a LAN setting box in my Explorer tools option.
What a palaver.

Bought this router as our first foray into the whole wireless thing because of son's laptop. Not only could we not get it to work at first, it took down our BT Broadband service and we had to enlist BT's help in restoring some sort of internet service. We tried to contact Netgear by phone using the UK number given on the paperwork - no joy. We were then put through to the US - no answer. We used their website to email them, and received emails in reply asking us to use different configurations etc., These didn't work either so we went back to BT. They said that the router was not configured properly to interact with BT Broadband and that Netgear should re-configure it themselves. Every time we went back to Netgear, we were given different instructions, none of which worked because we could not get into the part of their website that we needed to. Having spent the best part of 2 weekends on this, I'd had enough, and contact Amazon, who were their usual extremely helpful selves. They have taken the router back and will give us a full refund including recorded delivery postage! Netgear I'm afraid will never get any business from me again - the guy who said that 'they were always at the end of a phone' must have been very lucky!!
