NETGEAR Certified Refurbished WGR614-100NAR Wireless-G Router

Product Description

The WGR614 is a very attractive unit about the size of a small paperback with a silver exterior and rounded edges. An included plastic stand lets you stand the router on its edge to take up less space. The WGR614 makes it easy for even a novice to set up a wireless network: just plug the included Ethernet cable from your internet connection into the router and insert the included CD into any computer on the network, which will provide step-by-step instructions. The WGR614 employs a web-based interface for configuration, and the router will automatically do the initial setup by getting your DNS settings and determining your IP address. The firmware is also upgradeable via the web interface so you can be sure your router will always be up-to-date.

I've only had this router for a few days so far but I'm thrilled with its performance. Prior to this I was using a Linksys WRT54G2 v1 router which worked well enough with my laptop running Windows 7, but unfortunately did not work well with my Macbook (2010 model). With the Linksys, I was getting download speeds of ~700kbps on my Windows laptop, but only ~80kbps on my Macbook. I was at my wits end and about to take my Macbook in for repairs when I accidentally connected to my neighbor's WIFI network and found I could download at the correct speeds on their network. My neighbor has this specific router, so I figured it would be a safe bet to order another one of these for myself.

I received a refurbished WGR614 v10 router, a charger, an ethernet cable, and a paper stating that the product has a 30 day return guarantee as well as 30 days free technical support. There was no setup software necessary to get the router working, although I believe there is software available to download online. I literally just plugged the charger into the wall, connected the router to my modem, and it started working immediately. To change the security settings and set up a password, go to 192.168.1.1, where you can access the router's settings.

Sure enough, my Macbook is now downloading at similar speeds as my Windows laptop was! I think that some Macbooks don't get along with some Linksys routers for some reason. Anyway, if you're having internet difficulties with your Macbook such as slowness, be sure to give this router a try!

This is definitely WELL worth the money. Much less expensive than most wireless routers and works incredibly well. It may be refurbished, but it runs and works just like new. I have had a few problems, though not with the wireless router or connection itself. The website tells me to enter a username and password although I never had a chance to set up ether and I never received the CD that was supposed to come with it. Luckily I didn't need it because it set up very quickly all on its own. But the missing CD may be the reason I can not create an account.

This router has been running well for over a week. My older Netgear router had a bulging capacitor which caused it to make a high pitched noise. The only draw back is that the router does not come with an instruction manual, or an installation CD. If you are familiar with setting up a router, this is not a problem. You can easily find the default username and password online. There really isn't anything to setup except for the wireless setting, and changing the password. The router is setup to work right out of the box. Given the price, I am happy with the purchase.

Buying this wireless router Netgear WGR614 Refurbished Wireless-G Router (WGR614NAR) on Amazon saved me a small fortune from having to go to Office Max or Staples and even more if i purchased it at my local computer store. Had to have a friend hook it up though because I didn't know how and the instructions were a bit vague for a tech novice. Although it is refurbished you wouldn't know it. It came in original packaging. I had to re-check to see if I ordered the new one.

This wireless router is exactly what I wanted; I was looking for a wireless setup in order to use my laptop and to get rid of the ethernet cord going across the living room to my bedroom. And this wireless router does the job just great, plus my house mate can use the wired feature for his equipment. Very awesome product!

This router is excellent for the price. No hardware issues yet, however software updates seem limited if they happen at all. Not sure if this is a good thing or bad thing when it comes to security.

This has been a great, reliable little router. We generally have 4-8 devices on it at a given time in our two bedroom, single story apartment. It's not quite as fast as Ethernet, but the speed drop is pretty unnoticeable most of the time, even with streaming video. Would definitely recommend this product.

Works very well, allows you to extend the range of your internet outside the confines of an ethernet cable.

Had several and I would buy another ........Great product Great Price !

Loaded DD-WRT and it works great! I would definitely recommend this router. I reset it every once in a while, but only when it appears to be slowing down.
