Very happy with the product. Took some time to get use to the menu. I like functionality of the firewall and router. Documentation is not easy to follow through. Technical support needs more experience. Over all I am happy with the product.

Probably OK for the average SOHO

by Vernman on 1/20/2011

I've had two of these in the last year. They are easy to work with and setup but both started to cause trouble after a few months. After moving on, I discovered that our network was subjected to much more traffic and torture than I had anticipated. I feel like the Netgears would have been fine if they had been in an environment more suited to them. Probably 12 or less users without a heavy VPN load. In the end, they just couldn't compete with a Cisco 861 that was another $100 or so.
