[TigerDirect] Recertified Wireless-N Netgear Router $20+Shipping

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
A Wireless-N router for that price? Reviews everywhere about the router are really good including the ones on the TigerDirect product page.

For me shipping to 30092 with EconoShip was $2.92 so the price is worth it

$10 off coupon code: GQM17224

i just made this post last week on anandtech hot deals, so i'll do it again here! having owned v1 of this router for over a year i can tell you with certainty it's not worth it, even as a repeater. if you're lucky enough to get v2 (most reviewers at td and newegg didn't) it's probably great with dd-wrt, but otherwise i've had nothing but terrible experience with it (although the switch works great!) and am really, really missing my wrt54g.

if you go through the trouble and wander over to the networking forum there you'll notice a bunch of complaints from people in the thread who had just purchased it - received v1, repeat only with wep/open, so on. if you've been waiting to upgrade to n this is not the way to do it.

you arent clear on why its bad, are you saying its not good because it doesn't support 3rd party firmware or just the hardware is bad? I have this router and it's very good for an entry level N router for someone seeking to upgrade from wireless g

if you'll follow the link to anandtech i outline the reasons, here they are for the less interested. i have comcast cable at 12/2 and a motorola sb6120 modem and am using the latest firmware (updated two years ago!) from netgear.

1. using a wireless n client (rosewill rnx-n300x) i could acheive 300Mb speeds but my ping time would sometimes exceed one second (not 100ms, a full one-one-thou-sand).
2. adding b/g clients to the mix i get all sorts of dropped signals and my n clients slow down. to keep things working i have to reset the router daily.
3. dropping the transmit rate down to 54 or 144 and still no joy - dropped connections, long pings, et cetera.
4. if you read the reviews on newegg you'll see most users have trouble when upnp and qos are on - turning these (awesome and essential for me) services off as well as all others except for port forwarding i can keep the router running for a few days and up to a week, but it still stops working after a while and i have to deal with what appears to be a "sleep" mode, refreshing pages for thirty-forty seconds before they load.
5. speedtest.net says i get 1-6 down and ~1.2 up using my wireless n client, no other clients connected. connected to the switch i exceed 20 down and 2 up, about what i get connected to the modem. obviously wired will be faster but i easily got >10 down and >2 up with my wrt54g that i picked up from a savers for eight bucks two years ago and my internet was snappy (oh do i miss it!).
6. a lot of people will be buying these as repeaters - it only supports open and wep passwords in repeater mode, dropping your n network down to g speeds as full n requires wpa2.

all that said, if you're upgrading to n from a decent g router you, like me, will be sorely disappointed. if you search outside of product reviews (ie netgear forums) from users who have owned the router for a few days and are really excited you'll notice a ton of unhappy customers, a complete lack of firmware development or support from netgear, and this one moron who works for netgear that swears the router is great and suggests a reset and thirty seconds is the solution to all of your problems. seriously - i'm on my way home now from visiting my family and their b network on a 5Mb cable connection was giving me better download rates and faster page loads then i get at home. heck, with only half an hour of use, i am confident that the connection i'm using now on a greyhound bus is more reliable. don't get me wrong - the wnr2000 v1 works but, at least in my experience, it just doesn't work as advertised or expected.

edit: sorry, yes - i am saying the hardware is bad. this could probably be remedied if v1 supported third-party firmware or netgear still supported the router, but it doesn't except with A TON of leg work and netgear doesn't. however, everyone who got v2 seems to be happy (broadcom instead of atheros) so hopefully purchasers are lucky!

I have this router (I bought a non-recertified), and I have no problem with it. I had it ran up to 5 comps at once with one comp running torrent and two other comps playing L4D2 and it was still fine. I guess if you use it for special purpose like Claes mentioned the avoid it, but as a general router it works great.
