Review: Netgear Gigabit Wireless Router


Netgear WNR854T


  • Very Clean looking
  • Has never hung on me after extreme downloading on torrent and wireless streaming
  • Gigabit transfer between wired pc and NAS was excellent. I was transferring 10 to 15 GBs in under 9 minutes.
  • Interface can be used by a person with basic networking knowledge and advanced networking knowledge very easy to configure.
  • Has a lot of features including access list for wireless, DMZ, port forwarding, and most standard features.


  • Wireless powerful only in close range meaning within 15 meters of it, I go roaming at list 25 meters away. Needs antenna to strengthen signal but no where to insert the connection if wanted.
  • Price is still a bit high around $140
  • You have to get Netgear solution to work the Pre-N settings, so no real benefit there.

Note: You must use CAT6e cables to get the best wired performance.
