It solved my wireless dificulties!
This is the first time I have written a product review. But I was so skeptical that any wireless router was going to solve my dead spots and poor connections in my home that when this did, I feel like I have to let others know. I was convinced that my home is an electromagnetic black hole because I have difficulties with every device I have in the house. My wireless laptop had great connection with other Netgear routers in every other environment but my house. I replaced my router with a Netgear WGR 614 (g) in the fall, 2004 and my connectivity was still unreliable. I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 with an internal wireless card. Unless I was within 15 feet of the router, my connection would fade in and out and when it was in, it would only transmit at 3-5 mbps. Needless to say, my wireless experience was disappointing at best. The claims of this Rangemax seemed too good to be true. But it is true! It was easy to set up (even for a mom!) with the included set-up wizard on CD-ROM. And now I can move all over the house, in the yard, near the home entertainment center, near the laundry appliances (lots of metal which killed my signal before) and I keep a strong signal and the speed is never lower than 18 mbps! Awesome! And I'm still using the internal wireless card. At first I thought the price was a little much considering my current router was less than a year old, but it was worth every penny. If you're having connectivity problems, give it a try!
