Netgear Gigabit Router with RangeMax Wireless N

We have just posted up a review of a couple of Netgear Wireless-N products.  We've got a look at the Gigabit WNR854T Wireless-N RangeMax router as well as the matching WN121T Wireless USB 2.0 adapter.  Wireless N is supposed to be up to 15x faster and 10x farther than standard Wireless G and we'll test things and find out.  Catch our review for all the details.

The range is great but the two things that cased strikes against the Netgear wireless products are the performance, and the constant rebooting of the Router required during setup.  It took almost 20 minutes to get all of the ports forwarded, set up some blocked lists, set up the wireless network and more.  Most of this time was spent waiting on the router to reboot.   Although wireless performance was less than expected and certainly less than advertised, wired performance of the Gigabit switch was very good. . .

Please post your thoughts, comments and questions about this Wireless-N gear right here.

Hmmm, very interesting stuff.  I think for the time being I will stick with the Wireless GL for my wireless needs.  I have done some work with netgear routers and the constant rebooting can definitely be distressing at times.
I always thought animals couldn't talk until my cat told me they could.
