When first searching for a connection to a new cable modem, adding a wireless router was of interest to add flexibility once the connection was inside the house. The tech guys at the store I visited suggested the Netgear wireless router. Now in a new house with a different cable modem and new service provider, the wireless router works just as it has from the day I first installed it - and the initial installation was a breeze. The WG111 is on the receiving end and it was truly plug and play. Support from Netgear was needed once because, as a novice user, I was unfamiliar with the security key feature (a real benefit in areas where neighbors can tap into the network). The support staff was friendly and there was a minimal amount of waiting time. The supporting documentation was weak, which prompted by call in the first place, but the issue was resolved quickly. Netgear routers - both wireless and wired - are also the standard at the company wherE I work, which I discovered after buying my router. Maintenance is low and reliability is high. Based on my personal experience and feedback from the technical experts where I work, Netgear routers are well recommended.
