My two cents
 
I have been using Netgear products for several years, and the FWG114P for over a year. I have about 20 of these in the field. They operate in extreme weather conditions (encased in polystyrene) as well as offices. It is currently my overall router of choice.PROS-Great all around router for the money-Easy to configure with lots of options-DHCP server is rock solid-Rubber Ducky antenna is removable with standard SMA connector-...

Zero Support
 
Netgear is absolutely the WORST tech support/customer service I have ever had the misery of encountering. It doesn't exist. So if you think you'll ever need any tech support or customer service, don't buy this product!

Great device but Don't count on India-Tech Support
 
This is going to be my second FWG114P I'll be purchasing. Netgear has package a great device... combination Print Server/FireWall solution. I found it simple to configure and maintian... Recommend to update to the latest software rev. immediately before configuration. Once you have configured your device to your liking... remember to back up your settings!Now the review... It has been my experience with the Netgear wireless devices will only last between 2-3 years. I previously owned...

Differences Between Hardware Versions
 
I have four of these products. Two are V1 and two V2. The radio power and sensitivity are better in V2. However, with V2, I have had difficulties with the serial modem dial backup working, as well as VPN passthrough using another VPN host with the Netgear serving clients. Netgear tech support has tried to be helpful, but after six weeks has not been able to solve the problems. As soon as I revert to V1, things are fine. The trouble is that V2 is the current version.

poor printer compatibility
 
I would like to comment on a few models of printers I have tested. Unboxed off the shelf, I tested this unit's print server capability and found it incompatible with all 3 tested models:- HP OfficeJet K60- HP DeskJet 3650- HP DeskJet 1220CI then upgraded the firmware and retested the print server capability. The HP DeskJet 1220C is now supported.FYI to new buyers, be sure to check the printer compatibility list before purchasing this product if you plan...

Don't do it
 
Netgear makes many fine products - but this is not one of them. If you like rebooting your router at least daily because once again you cannot connect to the internet, then by all means, buy this device. If you like slow communication speeds - then it is for you.They just don't have this thing right yet. Tried firmware upgrade and not much better.I also suggest getting a product that is more specific to your needs. Maybe the multifunction is too much for this little guy.

Didn't work for me
 
I purchased this router to replace my Netgear FR314 (the features are similar, but this router has wireless).After installing it, I could only get about 32Kbps download bandwidth from the internet (the FR314 gets about 3Mbps down). I called tech support. For the next few frustrating hours they walked me through all kinds of "stab-in-the-dark" settings changes. Nothing helped. They told me this router is defective and to return it. I got a new one and it had the same problem as well.<...

Good Home Office Firewall
 
I've applied the new flash upgrade, and performance is still quite good. Most of my comments from January still apply. Setup is quick, Citrix & terminal services work without modification, and I can connect to my main office via Cisco VPN client. Games are still working too.As with most vendors, I suspect you'll have better compatibility if you use a Netgear WiFi NIC with this unit. I can get it to work with a Cisco Aironet NIC, but I cannot get WPA encryption to work. WEP (for what it's w...

Better now that there is a firmware upgrade
 
Back in November, I tried version 1 of this product. And I wrote a review saying that many of its features just did not work.In addition I wrote that Netgear tech support never responded to any of my email requests for support, and that was six months ago. Their website said allow one day.Anyway, they have now released a firmware update. And all the problems I previously complained about are gone now. For example, it now works with Citrix and the error messages are now in "better...

Print Server does not support Multifunction Printers
 
I recently upgraded from the WGR614 to this. From a router and wireless standpoint, this unit is MUCH better than the previous Netgear routers I had. The pretty silver units are nice for consumers, but I needed more options and more range. This unit does it all.However, and it is a BIG however, the Print Server (which was the main reason to spring for the total upgrade) does not support my HP PSC 2410 nor my EPSON Stylus CX5200. Those two things in themselves make it impossible for me ...
