|Replace old DSL equipment
Cheaper than the vendor's machine.12/4/2012
I purchased this unit to replace a Vendor's rental machine. It is simple to use (with little knowledge of networking with DSL). It paid for itself in 3 months and if it breaks it is easy to replace and configure.

I wish I had taken more time to read product reviews across the net before buying this router. It died after 2 weeks. I imagine that Netgear/Buy will make good on a replacement but try explaining that to a customer who now has no service until that replacement arrives. I agree with most of the reviews. The product is competitively priced, Netgear is a great company, but this product has a high failure rate. Shop around.
I just replaced my DSL modem, firewall and wireless router with the Netgear DG834G. My home system is fairly challenging, web site, ftp site, home automation, dynamic dns, remote admin, teens with laptops. This device replaced 3 boxes at about 25% the power consumption. Setup was really smooth. Performance excellent. I was so impressed I bought stock in Netgear, and that turned out to be a great deal also!!
