    Netgear Rock :-)

    They only succeeded.

    They have made a very happy buyer here.

    17th Feb they requested my Router Back, and paid for it, by sending me a Fed Ex label by email. They only wanted the Router n the Power Brick. I keep the rest.

    I posted it 18th by taking it to my local PO.

    And today, I get a brand new one. Still wrapped.

    Awesome



    Very happy, very pleased, very impressed

    Thank you Netgear.

    they do....once I got someone who spoke good enough English I was flying.

    Will recommend them to people. To be fair, was my first Netgear failure, and have had 3.

    Well I use Netgear, and have had no problems whatsoever with them. They seem to be very reliable, and the box even looks pretty good compared to other companies.

    Shame about their products, brother's got a 4 port hub and it's not good under load, and used to have a Netgear ADSL router, crashed every few hours, switched to ZyXel, never had a problem.

    Although it does sound like good customer support, maybe they've turned things around there?

    i dont understand people who hate netgear, sure its maybe not the best for enthusiasts, but its the ipod of routers compared to the iriver of linksys or whatever.

    You plug them in, and they go, plus they look good (if thats important). I bought one cause i know nothing about networks (despite being good inside a PC) and its never set a foot wrong.

    I also have a netgear ADSL router. It does the job good enough, but every few days it needs a reboot. I dont mind it happening, but it does get a bit frustrating.

    Nice to hear they treated you so well though, props to them

    If you have gone through what i have with them youd understand. I got so fed up with getting faulty/buggy/just plain crap routers off of them. They upgraded mine for free after i got 3 in a row that didnt work and 1 that wouldnt accept updated firmware i litterally gave up with them. I ended up throwing the router in the bin (read router as £100) and set up a smoothwall box which has only gone down 3 times in nearly a year. My netgear router used to crash every 5 minutes when it wanted to work. Ive also had problems with their network cards, (IRQ problems). Also the 'customer service' i recived when i dealt with them was appaling. It may just be that i was (very very) unlucky with them but id rather go without internet altogether than have to put up with netgear rubbish. Looks like things on the customer service front have improved alot since i had my troubles, but i would still question the quality of their products. On my old DG814 router it got so hot that your could actually slowly toast bread on it.

    Hubs are never good under load. Use a switch, Hubs broadcast everything out their port to what ever is connected, so, you're getting collisions, collisions equal *not so good under load*.

    I have a netgear switch hooked up to my netgear Broadband router, no problems what so ever, had it for 1 1/2yrs now. Every case is going to be different...

    I work in retail and all we sell is Netgear ADSL routers, switches etc. Not had one back and everyones pleased with their purchase.

    The law of averages would mean that there is always a bad egg out there unfortunately.

    I bought a Netgear wireless G ADSL Router/Modem for a client (the DG834(G) i believe). It disconnected all the wireless clients every 5 minutes. Continuously for 5 days. More than a little frustrating.

    Eventually another frustrated user wrote a beta firmware himself and the whole problem stopped.l Been a fantastic router since then.... Thank god for this guy otherwise i might have well bought garbage.

    If anyone else is having this problem you can get the firmwares here.... I used the 1.10 and have found it works great - just make sure you update through a wired connection to the router!!!"!!!!!

    Hope this might help someone as desperate as i was... it took me 3 hours of trawling the netgwear forums to find that link!

    Nice to know that Netgear have good customer support.

    I too have had this great level of customer support from Dlink.
    My router just suddenly died, I phoned up and had a replacement within 4 days!
    I also had a network card fail, so I phoned up and got a replacement for that too!

    They really need to get more people answering the phone though, queue time is way to long.
