Good WAP for consistent results

Strengths: Product works well for wireless access, but I had trouble with the initial setup not working well with comcast cable.

Weaknesses: I didn't like the initial setup process, but otherwise the product has worked flawlessly.

Summary: The Netgear WAP works very consistently and the throughput and signal range seems very adequate for the 802.11G standard. I installed it at my parents and they have been very pleased. I would recommend for any light to modest use home.

Joe Pentelone

Strengths: Easy to install. Seems to work.

Weaknesses: I use it in NY City in an apartment building. Interference from either other WIFI's or other sources makes it stop working about once an hour and I need to reset it.

Summary: Pretty Good overall. I would probably buy it again.
