4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to install, works fine.
This product works great. The only complaint I have about it is there is no mention anywhere in the documentation on the correct way to insert the PC Card. The PC Card will go in both ways, and I had to experiment to see which way was the right way. Other than that, the card works great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Netgear MA301 is XP Compatible
Ignore the Microsoft Warning upon installation that it is not compatible with XP. It is compatible with XP. I use it with XP and have no problems - once you get past the Microsoft XP installation warning. This apparently is a certification method recently installed by Microsoft in order to get additional control and income over the manufacturers. The Netgear website explains all this.

5-0 out of 5 stars This card works well
I spent a lot of time reading the reviews about wireless access points, wireless routers and wireless network cards. I finally decided on the Linksys router and the Netgear MA 301/401 interface card. So, here's the deal. I have a PII-400 running Win98 that is connected to the router using Cat 5 cable, which is then connected to a cable modem. For those of you who don't know, Cat 5 cable is simply the standard ethernet cable. I then installed the MA 301/401 combo on another computer, a Packard Bell PII-233 running Win95. Unfortunately Win95 had an IRQ conflict with the PCI card (MA 301) that could not be resolved. I installed Win98 and the IRQ conflict disappeared.

After getting the Packard Bell system set up, the MA 301/401 would not link up with the Linksys router. I called Netgear tech support and discovered that the SSID on the card must be identical to the SSID on the router. I discovered that the Linksys SSID was "linksys" and the SSID on the card was "Linksys." When I changed the "L" to an "l", the card connected to the router immediately and I was in business.

The Packard Bell machine is on the 2nd floor of my townhouse and the Linksys router is in the basement. The signal, therefore, is passing thru 2 floors and 2 walls. The link quality and signal strength are consistently in the "good" category and sometimes they are "excellent." These are qualitative measures reported by the Netgear card's software.

As for performance, I downloaded a 19MB file off Microsoft's web site and it took less than 5 minutes via the wireless connection.

I have to admit that I was a bit apprehensive about buying the Linksys router. The reviews are mixed and some people have totally trashed it. I decided to give it a try, figuring that I would return it if it didn't work well. The same thing for the MA301/401 card; some loved it and some hated it. I was also concerned that having a router and card from different manufacturers would cause problems. It turns out that I didn't need to be concerned at all because both pieces are working perfectly.

Contrary to what others have said, my connection has not been lost and it takes only a few seconds to establish the wireless connection on startup. I have found that the documentation provided with both items was adequate. However, I wish each of them would have mentioned the importance of having the same SSID on the router and the card. I have not talked with Linksys tech support, but the two calls to Netgear went well.

Things to watch out for: 1)The Netgear MA 301, which is the PCI card that plugs into the desktop computer must be used with the Netgear MA 401 wireless PC card. This PC card will also fit in a laptop. 2) As I mentioned, the SSID must be the same on both pieces of hardware. 3)I have not activated the WEP encryption so I have no idea how it will affect performance.

The bottom line: I highly recommend the Linksys BEFW11S4 V.2 router and the Netgear MA 301/401 interface card.

1-0 out of 5 stars Incompatible with XP
Be warned! You may think that wireless LAN is something pretty up to date and that you will be able to use a pretty standard PCI adapter with XP. You can't. The XP compatbility wizard managed to find this card and announce its incompatibility. And this is despite there being an XP drivers folder on the CD.

The version I've got doesn't even run under 2000.

AVOID

4-0 out of 5 stars easy to setup
I loved the fact that this card installed without the PCMCIA card even present and worked perfectly when I put the PCMCIA card in. No messing around with installing drivers for this card, then for that card, etc.

So overall a slick install and a good piece of work. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars extra bang for your buck
This is a nice piece of gear because it saves having to get a wireless hub and router separately, which frees up the 4 ports for just computers, and eliminate extra wires and boxes and power cables.

Router:
A great feature of this particular router is that it can email you activity logs which show what websites were visited on that day through the router. You can also block access to websites or any site that contains a keyword, so this could be useful in small office and home (children) use. (By viewing the website activity logs, you can find out which sites to block so that next time the user tries to go there it will say "blocked by netgear" and you will be notified of the attempt.) You can also lockout times and dates.

This Router does NOT have a firewall built in- even though this box looks like the netgear firewall router (the one for the same price without the integrated wireless hub).

Wireless hub-
Average range. Security wise, you can set it up with 128 bit WEP and with MAC Address authentication, which secures your network to a reasonably safe level. ALSO MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE THE ADMIN PASSWORD FOR THIS ROUTER, AND FOR ANY ROUTER.
Cons: The antenna can not be changed or removed. The unit is not designed to be hung from a wall like the SMC wireless hub. (WHY would you do that? To get better wireless range).

THE UNIT
The unit itself, like all netgear products, is metal and a nice dark hue of blue, with several blinking indicator lights. I am happy with my one, which uses a DSL connection with static IP address to feed 4 computers and two wireless laptops.

3-0 out of 5 stars kept dropping wireless connections
I bought this router and MA401 wireless card for my laptop. It was pretty easy to set up everything. Within 10 minutes, I was already enjoying my wireless network. But, after a few hours, my wireless connection was suddenly dropped and my access to the Internet was denied on the laptop. I tried to restart the machine, reconfigure the network... but nothing worked. I called the customer service number. They told me to change some of the configurations and it worked. But then the next day the problem came back again. It kept happening for a whole week. And each time I called them, they would tell me to do something which seemingly solved the problem. But each time, it came back again. Everything became so annoying and frustrating now. I just wanted to return the products. Then the last time I called them when this problem happened again, they told me to upload a new firmware into the router. And bang, it solved all the problems. Their customer service is polite, nice and knowledgable. But I just don't understand why they didn't tell me to update the firmware in the very first place. Now I'm happy again, after all the pain I went through. So be prepared for big trouble if you want to purchase this router. And if you know what you are doing to your computer like me, ask them about the new firmware before they keep throwing garbage solutions to you. Other than that, the product is cool. Easy and fast to use.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wireless ATT@home user
I installed the Netgear MR314 today and had it working in less than 1 minute. During the time I ordered the product and the time I got it about a week. I read Netgear's Product manual. So I knew how to do it right away. The website has the ISP installation guide for all the popular cable and DSL connections. I have a 3 com cable modem and 3 wired computers and one laptop with the US Robotics 22 Mbs max cardbus. Windows 98SE, ME and XP all worked.

I also recommend reading about 802.11b security and suggestions like change defaults, SSID, password changing, WEP encryption and MAC address so you don't have any eavesdropping. Extreme tech was a good source.I don't believe you can turn off the SSID broadcast. I think that would be a nice feature.

It doesn't matter to have the 11 Mbs max connection since ATT@Home is not faster than this. I guess very large file transfers may take some time.

NAT is the only type of firewall for this router. It works well. I use black ice defender on one computer and nothing gets though, but what I want. There are some routers with SPI which is a true firewall. They cost more and I believe will protect you from denial of service.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing wireless range
I don't like it when people write reviews on here criticizing a product without giving real proof that it wasn't their fault. Some reviewer thought the router setup page didn't work with IE - but doesn't mention any attempt with a different browser. So beware of noobs.

I have a MR814 v1, MR814 v2 and a D-Link 514 and none of them have offered the range this beast provides. I acquired this model after returning a defective MR814 v1, and initially I was annoyed to get an older model. But I think they sent this for a reason - it's much more reliable than the 814. Someone on here complains that they can't get reception over 100ft from the AP - how big is their house?? I have the router upstairs on one side of the house and can get a signal fine outdoors on the other side of the house - i.e. travelling through all the walls of the house (approx 42 ft away). Also I have tested it with my PCMCIA SMC card and a Netgear MA111 USB wifi dongle, and the dongle provdies better connection than the pcmcia, so there is some proper evidence of testing being done here.

It doesn't look nearly as good (or as small) as my other routers but if it does the job as well as it has so far - it is my first choice.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nicely built but has big issues
I bought this thing about a year ago and it worked pretty well. For a while. But after having to reboot the thing every few weeks I started to get a little tired of it.

Now, I am not trying to run a lot of machines through it - a Linux box on ethernet, a Sony Clie, Tivo, and an iMac over 802.11, plus Packet8 for my phone service over ethernet. No great strain on the processor.

So, why does the thing insist on locking up so much? To add to the problem, you can be going along just nicely on ethernet and suddenly the 802.11 dies.

Now, asside from the thing croaking and needing rebooting weekly, I get to do a complete factory reset once a month, wiping out all the stuff I have programmed into it (WEP keys, etc), because the thing will completely quit responding.

One would think that the problems are related to something overheating. But no, that is not it. That leaves the unit's firmware to be suspect. After reading about Netgear's sloppy code writing and their DoS attack against the University of Wisconsin time servers, I have to believe software is the issue. If they wrote code as bad as that which caused the UofWisc flood, I am sure awful code abounds in all their products. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A truly great product!
After much research, I finally found this little jewel. It has a SPI firewall, 802.11b wireless, 4 switch wired router, and print server - everything I need in one box. I got it up and running, updated to latest firmware, all features working in about 45 minutes (without calling Netgear, so can't comment on support). Yes, I am computer proficient, but I would not classify myself as a network expert. This is really about as idiot-proof as you can get.

I am still learning about how to set up a more secure firewall, and the FM114P seems to have more than what I need. The logging, port-forwarding, e-mail alerts, are all there. You can even block your kids from using Instant Messenger based on a schedule. On the wireless end, I recommend anyone setting up a wireless access point to change the SSID and password, and enable MAC address filtering as soon as you one up. The latest firmware update allows you to turn off the SSID broadcast. Turning on the 128 bit WEP will further frustrate the casual wardriver.

My Compaq notebook and Orinoco Gold card gets a good signal throughout my house, and is connected using 128 bit WEP. I can get to my office VPN, and my Compaq MC-1 music server can connect without problems. The print server is seamless - all my PCs (Win XP Pro) can print to my laser printer, and the print server will queue the jobs.

My compliments to Netgear - this is truly a great product for a great price.

1-0 out of 5 stars broke down the 3rd time. I give up (although under warranty
I have mine broke down 3 times. Twice before Netgear replaced it for "free", since it still under warranty. But each time they charge $10-12 for shipping. At this rate I could have bought a new one instead of putting up with the inconvenience. I think this box is very sensitive to power on/off cycles. It broke first time during the east coast power outage.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad product, but...
Netgear has some issues with this product's reliability. The first one, I had for about 6 months. One night it just died. All the lights were on, and it wouldn't talk to any of the ports.

Calling Netgear's support line was an adventure within itself. The call center is located in India. Don't call this place if you're on a noisy phone or don't have lots of time to waste. The first person I reached could barely speak english. He was obviously reading from a script, because when I explained that the router did not work, I had followed the troubleshooting guides and this was the result, etc, etc, he still started reading questions and asking me to connect it to a network and do silly tests. That's hard to do at work on your lunch break. He hung up very abruptly with the classic "Thank you for calling bye bye now. " Call #2. Another person, who could speak marginally better english. I went through his troubleshooting script, connecting my "router" to an "air" network. He decided that it was indeed not working (duh!) and gave me an RMA number. Ok. What, exactly, is a doofulfife? Well, it's 55 (double five.) He did explain to me that the dash (in the RMA number) is the little line on the keyboard, you may find it beside your number 0. O-kay!

Got the RMA (I think.) Returned it and received a refurb unit and stuck it aside. In the meantime, router #2 was in use. It died one day, about 3 months after purchase. Started forgetting IP addresses and not communicating with the printer. It got returned to the store it was purchased from, and Router #3 went into service. So far, it's worked for about 9 months. Router #4 is waiting, and will be the last one.

This is really a good piece of technology, it has just about everything you'd need to set up and protect a home or small office network. It runs extremely hot, which may be the reason it dies so quickly. Now, if only it was more reliable.

1-0 out of 5 stars Requires Frequent Rebooting - Not acceptable
I had one of the first home Wi-Fi systems using an Intel 802.11b access point that cost about $1000. (Yup, this is how much they cost for early adopters. Of course, it was worth every penny as Wi-Fi changes your life.) The Intel access point was incredibly difficult to configure, requiring several calls to tech support, but the range was excellent and the unit functioned continously until it finally died after a couple of years. I decided to replace the Intel access point with the Netgear FM114P, assuming it was at the top of the Netgear line and I thought Netgear was a reliable manufacturer. How wrong I was. This unit is simply unacceptable. It will stop working every day or two for no apparent reason and require rebooting. Obviously, this is an irritation if you happen to be in another part of the house. Also, I have the impression that the range isn't as good as my previous Intel unit since I have more dead zones in my house. (The Intel access point had two antennas -- I don't know if this is significant.) Overall, I am really disappointed. I suggest you stay away from Netgear until they improve their engineering.

1-0 out of 5 stars awful product, awful tech support
I bought one of these when I got a laptop because I thought it seemed like a great idea to have a firewall, print server, and wireless router all in one unit. I still think it's a great idea, but I with I hadn't bought this router. I use the router with two laptops, and the wireless connection drops pretty regularly. I have to reset the router at least two or three times a week (sometimes two to three times a day). When I call Netgear's off-shore tech support, I rarely get a helpful response. They did replace my router for me after I called enough times, but the new one has the same problems the old one had, so I think the firmware is just buggy. I wouldn't recommend this product. I've owned good Netgear products in the past, but I don't think I'll buy another Netgear product after this experience. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Netgear RT311 - Easy setup and solid performance
We just got a cable modem for hour home one week ago. Our PCs were already connected together using a hub in a simple peer-to-peer network. Getting them all on the net using the cable modem was the next step. The Netgear RT311 did so very easily. It came with everything that was needed and the FirstGear software was easy to use. One cable went to the modem, another to the hub, then the software configured the router. The manual (on the CD) explained how to get the little bit of information that the router need. I was able to configure it and our little network in less than an hour with no calls to customer support.

It allows up to 32 PCs to share either a cable or DSL modem and use just one IP address. It also provides firewall support to help keep netizens out of your PC which is supposed to work better than the software-only firewalls. For those who need to change the default configuration of the router can do so either by telnetting into it or through the serial port.

It looks rock solid since it has a metal case. It comes with a five-year warranty and 24/7 support. Ours has been in use for less than a day but it was easy to set up and so far the performance is excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Was Surfing the Internet Waves on My Keyboard
Boy, this is a great product! I just received it, and was a little hesitant to open it, since I was positive it wouldn't work with my RoadRunner connection. (Most products such as direct connections to a hub don't work; connection sharing refused to cooperate)

Anyway, since I couldn't resist, I ripped open the seal, and removed all the packaging. It was so easy to set up that it actually took longer to open the box! All I did was connect my router to my 3Com hub, and my modem to the RT311. I re-powered both units, and I was flying on the net.

The product comes with a web-based configuration utitlity, but my computer automatically recognized the connection. Troubleshooting is easy with the online wizard, and the product comes with 24x7 tech support. This has been the best network purchase I've made in a while, and I will definately continue to purchase with NetGear, so it's the perfect place to buyit. I LOVE this product!! :-)

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a good choice for VPN
I have used this router for about 6 mos. Initially satisfied, but then tried inbound VPN access, and found that even with static port/address mappings, connection drops in 5 to 10 minutes. Wife uses DSL for outbound VPN to office, and connection will drop after about 10 minutes. Replaced with Linksys BEFSR41 (with no static maps, no special configuration) and VPN works fine. Netgear support says I need to open 3 ports, change her client DNS, etc. Didn't do any of this with Linksys.

1-0 out of 5 stars money wasted -- and bad support, too.
I bought this router so I wouldn't monopolize the DSL line in our house when playing Everquest. The problem is that when I use this router Everquest always disconnects within 5 minutes. I made three calls to tech support without resolving the problem, though we did eventually narrow it down: the router seems to insist on holding onto a few port addresses that Everquest expects to use for itself.

After several long waits for short and unsuccessful conversations with tech support I tried using their web site to reach a resolution. I posted my case in July. Now it's October. I can still see my posting on the site, but I never received anything other than an automatic acknowledgement of the problem report.

The box won't do the one thing I need. The phone support is ineffective. The web support is non-existent. Money wasted.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to set up; if only it...
...if only it included a hub, or better yet a wireless hub!

I bought this almost a year ago, in late 2000. It was extremely easy item to set up. I followed the instructions, making only one mistake -- using a regular Ethernet cable instead of a rolled one. It worked right immediately (as I recall), or perhaps after one restart. Since then, I haven't ever had to use its Web-based administration. It sits in a corner of my basement, between the DSL modem and the hub with its wires leading off to various rooms.

Before I opened it I phoned NetGear to reconfirm that it was the right item for my needs. They answered quickly and accurately.

My only complaint is that the product doesn't include a hub -- who'd use it without one? Or, these days, a wireless hub. I figure that five stars shouldn't go to a product that requires you to buy another product too, but only to a full solution. Other than that, though, this has been great. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not to Bad - Support could have been better
I own this product for about a year now and it has worked OK for 7 users connected and sharing a DSL Connection.

Netgear Support absolutely sucks, especially after 90 days of ownership. All they do is direct you to their premium phone support or to free email support which in turn directs you to their premium phone support. For top notch support go with linksys.

The Dynamic DNS they offer through works for short period and then generates DNS query error, good luck solving that. I would say that the firewall and security settings are a bit better then the $50-$90 dollar units.

To use the router as a VPN server for remote users, you need Netgears Client software. Windows VPN connection does not work, since it requares L2TP or PPTP termination which this router does not support. I think it will pass through those connections in which case you need a seperate VPN server like Windows 2000 Server edition OS.

If you decide to go with this router, please make sure you are ready to configure all the options you want this router to do (Dynamic DNS, VPN, Office to office connection, etc.). because if the support period passes you are on your own. Call the premium support and you have to pay nomater if they fix the problem or not.

1-0 out of 5 stars Netgear let this one before they finished desiging the unit.
I purchased this high speed router for a dedicated satellite internet connection. The unit provides one SSL outbound connection which is almost useless. The unit will not autosense the modem connection speed either 10 or 100 Mbps. The manufactures solution is to put an ethernet hub between the router and the ethernet modem. (what kind of a fix is that) Not what I would consider top of the line from Netgear. I would not recommend or sell one of these to any of my other customers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do Not Buy This Item
This is sold at a premium price and should be a premium product. It is NOT; it is high priced junk that should not have gotten past their Quality Department into the market.

The first unit lasted 3 weeks on a network of 4 users with a DSL rated @ 384 Kbps.

The tech service people refused to believe their unit could be at fault and blamed it on the ISP. I replaced this $450 router with a $50 one and all worked fine.

After a 2 hour wait for a Level 2 tech, I was issued a replacement unit. This unit, with serial # 4952, replaced one with a 125 serial # so I assumed the bug had been resolved. This unit died after 35 minutes of use.

I then called Netgear Tech Service people again and waited 2.5 hours for a Level 2 Technician. A recording came on telling me that they were too busy (after I waited for them for 2.5 hours) and told me to call at a later date and disconnected me.

I fired off a short letter to Netgear's Technical VP and CEO - which created a response. They offered to get me a new unit, stress test it, and send it to me. Then someone called and told me that it will take a week to get a suitable unit. I am still waiting - a week after the second unit died.

I had a very similar experience with their FVS 318 in Feb 2003 - where it took 3 units to get one that worked. I gave Netgear a second chance then. At this point however, I will no longer use Netgear equipment. I am an installer and I just cannot afford the labor associated with their faulty products.

As I told Netgear people - Stop rushing product to market before it is ready. The recall expense will hurt badly; the upset customers will go away. They did not heed my advice in Feburary and now, after I gave them an ample second chance, I do not intend to use Netgear routers again.

I strongly recommend you do the same unless you like to replace and replace and replace hoping to get something that works.

It is too bad for Netgear - but some people only learn the hard way. I guess they are one of them.

I wrote the above on Oct 10, 2003. It is now Feb. 22, 2004. Netgear does not have a fix as of today for this problem. They issued me a less costly FVS 318 as an interim fix in late October 2003 with the intent to have the FVL 328 repaired and restored. To date, there is no fix and this has been confirmed by an e mail to me of a few weeks ago.

I regret to take this harsh stance, I fully understand the technical problems in bringing a product to market and the unsuspected probems that can arise. However, the manufacturer is responsible for bringing a dependable product to market and this clearly did not happen in this case. For Netgear's sake, I hope they have overhauled their product introduction procedures or they will not survive with new product launch. For those considering a gateway router, I continue to recommend they not buy this one.

1-0 out of 5 stars ...
15 users, this unit continously crashes and very poor performance. I'm returning this unit as its not performing as advertised.

2-0 out of 5 stars Consider Carefully
"High Speed"? Don't think so. These units are easy to set up and install, and are feature-rich. They might work fine if you only have a few users (like under 10), but I experienced serious performance issues with only 25 users connected. They slow down seriously when you run a decent amount of traffic through them. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy setup, but weak signal
I purchased the Netgear HE102 along with the HA501 cardbus card, after I had to return the Linksys WAP54A and WPC54A. There were many reasons why I had to return the Linksys. See my review of the WPC54A elsewhere on Amazon. At first, I was a little apprehensive about the Netgear after the Linksys saga. To my pleasant surprise, the Netgear's setup was a breeze. Every feature worked as advertised, including 152 bit WEP and Turbo Mode. I was able to set up the wireless LAN in less than 10 minutes. Actually, the thing practically worked right out of the box. And this is with Windows XP. Now that I have been using the network for a little while, I do have one minor complaint. There were a number of times when my connection was dropped. Although the WAP and the laptop were on different floors, the straight linear distance between the two is only about 50 feet. And I really don't expect the connection to drop in such short distance. Miraculously, the connection was okay in other parts of the house. So, you really need to play with the location, orientation, antennas, and channel selection of the WAP to achieve an optimal/compromised result. Since there is no guidance in how to do this, you have to experiment. It may take you a long time to find the right combination. After a couple of days of experimentation, I now settled on the one combination that gives me no dead spot in the entire house, but I have to give up on bandwidth. I don't get the full 72 Mbps unless the laptop is in the same room as the WAP. Everywhere else, 48 Mbps is the best that I can do, and it deteriorates very fast from there. From a different floor, I mostly get about 12 Mbps. This is a good compromise that is also acceptable for my purpose. Your mileage may vary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy install, fast speeds, great product, great experience
I did a lot of research before purchasing a solution for my home wireless network. I read a lot of horror stories about people having a hard time setting things up, connections dropping, etc., so I was a little spooked about spending a lot of money for something that might be a pain. Boy was I in for a surprise.

I picked this NetGear product because I have had good experiences with their products in the past, and hadn't really heard anything particularly bad about this product. When it arrived, I was VERY impressed. I simply plugged it in, connected it to my Ethernet hub, put my new network card into my laptop (I bought the NetGear HA501 at the same time), and viola! It just worked! No complicated setting to configure, nothing to change on my laptop, my network, nothing. And its range is outstanding.

Also, for those of you trying to decide between 802.11a and 802.11b, choose 802.11a. While you might see just a little perceived increase in speed, the reliability of your connection is so much better. With 802.11a you don't have to worry about microwaves, cell phones, cordless phones, and other devices interfering. With 802.11b there is so much interference that connections can (and do) drop or be very flaky.

Good luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great unit for behind the NAT Firewall
All I did was plug it in and turn it on. I read a thousand reviews and this unit showed promise, I was shocked at the ease of installation!! Once I was online I was able to configure it through my web browser... Done!!

I combined this with the Netgear - WAG511 on a WinXP laptop.

May stump some real beginners to the networking field as the documentation leaves a little to be desired. I am able to get a strong signal from my porch and every room in my house.

Recommendations, combine this with a multi protocol PC Card to ensure that you get a good signal, add powered entenna's to strengthen the signal, locate this within eye shot of your favorite seat for maximum performance and remember that the internet moves at a much slower rate than this connection at 28% throughput.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to install... but be sure you have all that you need...
It took me less than 10 minutes to get this up and running with my DSL line and my two remote pc's (one I installed the HA 311 PCI card, and the laptop with HA 501 cardbus). I have XP, and it was pretty much plug it in, and let it go to work. Then came the bad part... I couldn't network the two PC's, plus only one could use the DSL line at a time. So I did my reseach and found that you need a router/gateway to act as firewall (so you don't need to firewall the two pc's and thus they can network effectively) and to also allow simultaneous use of the DSL connection. I bought a Siemans 4 port router (circuit city 29.99 after a rebate) hooked it between the DSL and wireless access point and voila! Safety and shared DSL! All this extra work could have been saved had the product info on the Amazon site specified the need for a gateway/router... but I didn't find that out until I opened the box where in the manual it stated that you needed it for 'the recommended configuration'. It was still a good deal though, with the HE 102 Access Point costing less than ..., and the gateway ..., it was still cheaper than the NetGear HR 314 Wireless Router that performs both functions in one unit, but, sells for ... so I saved about ... bucks by accident. By the way, performance is great, though one site only gets 8Mbps throughput and a bit weaker signal, as my house has metal framing, but it is still waaay better that a 56k dialup!!! And I just love walking around the house with my laptop untethered, it is ever so cool.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, still not up to 802.11b range though.
This system was EASY to install. Basically, you plug it in and it broadcasts. It's speed level is fantastic. However, I found that its range was not nearly as good as with my SMC 802.11b system.

I am still glad I bought this product, but it is shocking to me that the system doesn't always get good reception from but one room away (It works, but not always particularly well).

I should mention how the system works speedwise. It's speeds are significantly higher than the 802.11b, but there is more of a lag. So, you might go to a website, get a slight lag where nothing shows up on the page, and then boom... it all appears instantaneously. I am sure that some of this delay is because I've created another point for data to go through - I am using this system through my SMC barricade.

The Netgear HE102 does NOT have a firewall built into it, and so you should really should route this system through one for added security.

So, should you buy and use this? Yes and no, depending upon your set-up.

NO: If you live in a big home where you don't have to worry about outside disturbances (ie multiple microwave ovens and 2.4 gig phones.) In this situation go with 802.11b for the greater range at a lower price.

YES: If you need to move massive amounts of data though your network. 802.11a is MUCH faster when it works, and you do notice the difference with larger files.

YES: If you live in a high density area such as a condominium were you have to worry about interference from your neighbors. This netgear system will bypass most interference since it operates at a higher frequency, and the lessend range actually becomes an advantage since it means you are less likely to get interference from other 802.11a systems as well. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great price on a quality product
A good solid performer, does what it is supposed to do. I have been using its "baby brother", the DS104, for several years... just needed a couple of more ports. Entirely suitable for home networking, home office or small office use. Very heavy users would be better off with a switch rather than a hub, but this will be fine for most.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Hub. Great Price.
An earlier review stated "this hub only appears to provide half-duplex support".This is part of the definition of a hub vs a switch, thus the product is not flawed. A switch will provide full duplex and is more appropriate for multiple high bandwidth devices. If you're attempting to decide HUB vs SWITCH, do a google search before you buy.

I have been a fan of Netgear products since they were originally under BayNetworks. They make high quality devices, attractive design, and they normally offer long warranties. This product is no different. I've had it serving up a couple of machines now for over a year without incident. It's remained on 24 hours / 365 days and performs nicely.

The only downside I've seen with Netgear is their on going support (Firmware upgrades, etc.). Obvisouly that won't be an issue with this device, but something to consider if your also looking at them to provide a router solution. Also, the power adaptors seem to go a little too often.

All and all, this is a great hub and wonderful price. I can think of no reason for some who needs a hub to not pick this up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Purchase
Great performance and stability - installed it in the ceiling of a middle school. Highly recommended for 5-6 computer systems.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's a hub. 'Nuff said.
It's a hub, and it does it's job well. Only one weird thing I'm noticing is that it appears to support only half-duplex (instead of full-duplex) on it's ports. But other than that, it works great. Just plug in all your stuff, and off you go. The network traffic indicator lights are great for seeing what's going on and how "strained" your hub is. This is perfect for a small office or home network, but if you are going to be dealing with nonstop traffic/bandwidth, I would probably go with buying a switch instead of a hub.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW! DIDN'T KNOW I COULD HAVE SUCH A STABLE AND FAST MODEM!!
i can't believe it! i have a cable modem that i used with the hub and connected it to 5 other computers. it works great and the modem is very stable... i highly recomend this to anyone that wants home-networking. it is easy to use and i connected a cable modem to the hub using a router and with no hastle, it worked like a dream! ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Good value, comparable to RT314 but dissapointing enhancemts
I used it for less than a month. It replaced an Netgear RT-314 I had before. I was happy with the basic functionality of the RT-314, and I wanted to add some kind of parental control (essentially limit the hours my children could use the Internet).
The RP114 is advertised as having that capability, but it is quite limited. You can only set global access hours, there is no way to target different users. I also found that both the RT-314 and RP-114 would not allow multiple VPN sessions simultaneously, and I had to reboot the router to be able to connect to ATT Net Client after my wife had connected to her company. This was a great annoyance, and I finally returned the RP114 and bought an SMC Barricade 7004-ABR. That solved the problem with VPN. And to my surprise, the Barricade has the parental controls I needed, but they are not trumpeted on the box like netgear does, plus it has a print server. All for about [price] more....

3-0 out of 5 stars Neither Interface (HTTP or Telnet) is complete
I bought this little unit because I've purchased netgear products before (a 4-port hub, and a 56K Modem/Router combo). The biggest thing I hated about the RP411 was the interface. The HTTP interface only allowed you to configure SOME of the routers settings. The Telnet interface, while more complete, didn't have the content filtering section or the DHCP listing that the HTTP interface had. (Maybe I just didn't see in the Telnet interface... this is entirely possible). I was used to using WinRoute Pro, a software router, which is so easy to setup that going from it to the netgear router was a step backwards.

Even more than having to go into two different interfaces to configure the router, the filtering and port forwarding setup was so confusing. It took me days to figure out how to open the web and ftp ports. In my research for help in this area, the netgear site was unuseful. I did find many other people with the same questions and finally found one answer on someone personal website on how to do things properly. (Keep in mind I didn't read the router manual and as far as I'm concerned I shouldn't have to.)

I do believe the router can do anything you want it to do, which is why I gave it 3 stars. I also believe you'll have a hard time configuring the router to do what you want it to do, which is why it didn't get 5 stars.

I ended up returning the RP411 router and replacing it with the Siemens SpeedStream 2-Port DSL/Cable Router. It was cheaper and the interface was incredibly easy. It only comes with two ports, but I have hubs so no big deal. And to top it off the internet connection was faster using the SpeedStream rather than the RP411. I did notice when I was trying to fix my open port problem with the RP411 that many commented that the router slowed their internet access speed.

5-0 out of 5 stars RP114 is really a good piece of hardware
I was able to connect my Windows98 PC and a Sun Ultra 5 running Solaris 8 in about 2 minutes and 15 minutes respectively.

Remember to telnet to the modem: telnet 192.168.0.1 and change the default password, once you've got all you comps. up and running. Various models of Netgear routers have the same USername and password combos.

For Sun Ultra series - if you're having config issues - on Solaris 8:

go to: /usr/sbin

execute: sys-unconfig

Reboot.

The system will ask you a bunch of questions. Just keep the IP address of your router handy. That's all you need. Keep answering the questions and you'll be networked in no time.

Give your Sun box an IP like 192.168.0.2 or .3 or whatever is unused. For example if you have a Windows box on the network already hooked up - give the Solaris box a +1 IP addy.

The CD that comes along with it is junk and the 'foldable' manual page is not too great either. The Netgear site FAQ will tell you to refer to the User Manual on many occasions. It does not EXIST... So don't waste your time. But the product itself is super simple to use.

2-0 out of 5 stars Horrible router
I have similar problems as described by someone here. I have to disconnect the router often to get on the internet. It would stop working suddenly. Also Netgears' customer service is pathetic. I have been using this router for 2 years now.

1-0 out of 5 stars It's Horrible
I don't know how to begin... This router randomly decides sometimes that it doesn't want to work. The internet will stop working. Completely. When I unplug my computer and try plugging in directly to the DSL modem, everything works fine. For some reason, this router messes with me every single day, and I'm on amazon now looking to buy a new one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice card, nice price
To keep my small business network running, I've always tried to reduce costs where possible. Unfortunately, when it comes to network cards, using the lowest possible priced Ethernet card can be false economy.

The Netgear FA311 is one of the only cards I've come across where oddball compatibility issues don't arise. With others, there's always an issue or two, however minor they may be. A D-Link card that prevents a home automation package from working. A Linksys card that conflicts with an online streaming video technology. I could go on. The Netgear costs just a few dollars more than these others, but is still well under the price of brands such as 3Com in most cases.

For me, on all the machines I've tried, the FA311 installs quickly and easily, and works marvelously.

I have only one caution: Windows 2000 users should download and have ready the latest drivers from the Netgear web site. Across two FA311 purchases, the drivers delivered on the packaged floppy had various problems (e.g., major packet loss). I'm used to doing that as a matter of course for the majority of driver-dependent computer goodies, so I didn't find it to be a hassle in this case.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ethernet card works flawlessly at a great price!
I have bought over 5 of these for home and office use. They work flawlessy and for the price you cannot beat the functionality. I was running Windows 95 or Windows 98 on all the computers. Setup was a snap. Just pop in the card to an empty slot. Then install the drivers from the floppy disk that comes in the package. Worked flawlessly everytime. I had no problems hooking up the ethernet card to a Linksys DSL/Cable Router, Netgear ethernet hubs, or a college dorm ethernet connection.

Get this card and you will get the convenience of file and print sharing when used in conjunction with some sort of hub and windows network neighborhood. Anyone with little to no computer expertise can do this just by following the instructions. It may be a little difficult if you are scared of computers, but it can still be done. Just follow the pictures that come on the step by step setup foldout.

1-0 out of 5 stars *******Netgear erred with this one********
First, let me say that I'm a loyal Netgear customer - I love their wired and wireless products and I usually don't even want to consider purchasing any other brand. Which is all the more reason why it pains me to say that FA311 is a really bad piece of hardware. When running many types of online software (games, P2P, etc.) FA311 will cause your PC to crash (you've been warned!) Some experts have attributed the problem to FA311 Win XP driver; however, Netgear refuses to acknowlege this and has no updates available as of this writing. And although you can install fixed 3rd party drivers for this card, I'd recommend to play it safe and avoid FA311 altogether!

I have had some NICs of questionable quality, but this card is a joke. I bought it almost a year ago, and it worked just fine for the majority of that time.

5-0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY WORTH EVERY $
I got this router/switch to enable a windows, a linux and a machine to share one dsl connection. It works just fine. The setup took about ten minutes. after pluging the cables in and setting up the router over your webbrowser (or telnet if you prefer) you don't even need to manually reestablish the connection by logging on every time. It does it automatically for you! This is one easy to use piece of hardware that is even uplinkable! The e-mail support by netgear is pretty and very helpful, too. The only thing I think should be changed is that the advanced option during the setup is not available over your webbrowser. Netgear did that not to confuse newbie with a lot of tech-junk they don't need to worry about anyway. But you can however still acces it, for instance with tellnet. Another good thing about htis product is the dhcp-server function. This way you don't have to manually configure the IP addresses any more! Finally I have to say that I am absolutely content with this product. The manual was precise and helpful and the router itself seems to be high quality.

4-0 out of 5 stars works great, manual would help
i spent most of a day trying to configure this router. the network is practically plug and play on windows 2000, but the internet sharing took some work. i opened the manual off of the cd and followed the instructions. no paper manual was included, though there was a quick start brocure which even now i find only marginally useful. finally, duh, i cycled the power on the router and the cable modem (RoadRunner)and it all snapped together. the pdf manual on the cd does address issues with RoadRunner internet specifically, but does not mention any other providers by name. now that it is running, it is a beautiful thing. highspeed internet on all computers, file sharing; all the goodies. other reviewers had absolutely no problems installing their routers, as one who did have problems and still recommends this product let me say: if you unfortunately have problems, there are three separate utilities you can use to troubleshoot. one is run off of your browser (explorer, or netscape. possibly other, i dont know.) another is DOS based; and a third is based off of a serial cable connection. although there is a disk included in the package, there is no software to install. the resource cd has the only manual or troubleshooting included. now that it is running, absolutely the best money i have spent on computers in a long time. just remember to unplug your cable or dsl modem from the power socket for at least 2 minutes during installation. this forces your modem to obtain a new connection that you can share through your router. probably whould have shaved about 6 hours off of my installation time if i had tried that first. i love mine.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works well, but for a limited time
I've had my RT314 since 2000, and it worked pretty well 90% of the time. It ran in dynamic IP mode (with a near static IP from BellSouth). I also ran mail and web servers behind it for personal use. One time in 2001 I needed to upgrade the firmware because it was losing it's connection with my modem and not resetting.

But this month (January 2004) the router finally gave out. The router needs to be rebooted every half hour or so to work. I can't even pull up the telnet interface after about 30 minutes. After checking most of my network, I replaced the router and everything's back to normal. So if you're not running any servers on your high speed connection and get this router for cheap, I'd recommend it to work for you for about 4 years.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very stable, absolutely no issues.
I have had the Netgear RT314 router for over 3 YEARS and have had NO PROBLEMS with it whatsoever. The router has been very stable through tons and tons of use. I was very unfamiliar with networking when I bought this router, and the installation was simple (just follow the instructions EXACTLY!). I highly recommend this product. Firewall, DHCP, and LAN all in one. Great item!!! I have used this router (internet-wise) for both cable internet access and wireless internet access.
Note: Remember to tape your username and password to your router. I forgot to and it took me some time to find this info to get into my router. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars has worked flawlessly so far WinXP home !
It has been working without any problems so far on my laptop with Win XP Home. The drivers included on floppy were obsolete, but luckily Win XP had a better version in its database. So no installation was needed for it ! Just plug and play. Although in my opinion this peice shouldn't cost more than [$$$]! The companies making these products are ripping off laptop owners thinking all of these are bought by corporate America, which doesn't care for the price !!
Update: I returned this back to Staples. Found another seller on ebay giving me a Belkin one brand new [$$$]with priority shipping. (This confirms my suspicion that this product should cost only around 10 bucks). So guys don't pay 40 bucks for this simple piece of hardware.

1-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use solution to network add-ons.
After initially thinking this to be a God send I soon found it to be straight from HELL. This items works only sparadically at best. I called tech support took 1 hour on hold. Finally technical help said, "we have had lots of reports of sparadic data flow". In laymens term, it doesn't work all the time. Software is the issue as data seems to get compacted and lost. Unless they come out with a software upgrade steer away from this.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Use this with Linksys Router
I bought this ethernet adaptor for my laptop to connect to a Linksys cable/dsl router (BEFSR41). The main reason was that this adaptor is a bit cheaper and comes with a CAT-5 cable.

I installed it per instructions, even went on the net to get the latest driver (which turned out to be same as one that came with it in the box) but it just sat there, no network, no connection to the internet. After many hours messing around with it, I did get it to connect to the internet once (loaded one page) then nothing.

I called tech support but after waiting an hour without being able to talk to a real person, I decided to give up. I returned the unit the next day, picked up a Linksys adaptor. With the Linksys adaptor, it took exactly 5 minutes to get my laptop connected and working perfectly. The moral of the story is to stick to one brand of networking devices.

1-0 out of 5 stars It kept dissapearing from device manager.
I couldnt get this to work, unless I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, then it would work until i rebooted my computer. After that, it would no longer be in device manager. I just bought a D-link brand one, and it works great.

2-0 out of 5 stars Know the hidden requirements before you buy!
I recommend you call Netgear and ask them if you system is compatible with this adapter before you buy. I doesn't work with certain certain chipsets (I think the VIA chipsets -- which are pretty common).

My frustration was that I found this information out only after I'd bought the thing.

If you're looking for an ethernet adapter for a laptop, I recommend a PCMCIA card; that was my eventual solution. They are more reliable (and faster). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great speed at a limited range.
This system was EASY to install. You plug it into your computer, insert the cd-rom, and it will pretty much install itself in a couple of minutes. This installation is almost as easy as the access point where you plug it in and it broadcasts. It's speed level is fantastic. However, I found that its range was not nearly as good as with my SMC 802.11b system.

I am still glad I bought this product, but it is shocking to me that the system doesn't always get good reception from but one room away (It works, but not always particularly well).

I should mention how the system works speedwise. It's speeds are significantly higher than the 802.11b, but there is more of a lag. So, you might go to a website, get a slight lag where nothing shows up on the page, and then boom... it all appears instantaneously. I am sure that some of this delay is because I've created another point for data to go through - I am using this system through my SMC barricade.

Besides the limited range, there is one other annoying feature of the product - it lights. They blink and flash in a way that I find rather annoying, although one does get used to it for a while.

So, should you buy and use this? Yes and no, depending upon your set-up.

NO: If you live in a big home where you don't have to worry about outside disturbances (ie multiple microwave ovens and 2.4 gig phones.) In this situation go with 802.11b for the greater range at a lower price.

YES: If you need to move massive amounts of data though your network. 802.11a is MUCH faster when it works, and you do notice the difference with larger files.

YES: If you live in a high density area such as a condominium were you have to worry about interference from your neighbors. This netgear system will bypass most interference since it operates at a higher frequency, and the lessend range actually becomes an advantage since it means you are less likely to get interference from other 802.11a systems as well.

1-0 out of 5 stars constant dropped signal and system crash
I used 802.11b wireless for 3 years and was very happy with it until I started using software that requires transferring of large files. I even mixed routers and pc cards from different companies, and everything integrated well. I jumped into 802.11a wireless when it first came out thinking that it'll be just as easy to install. 4 out of 4 laptops that I had crashed and locked within 5 minutes as soon as pc cards come close to the router (even with non turbo mode). After changing the router, it seemed to work ok for few days. Now, my Sony picturebook still crashes so I can't use pc card at all, signal kept getting dropped every 30 minutes or so on my other laptops, and sometimes it locks everything and crashes my server. After 2 months of wasted effort, I am very disappointed, and I am going back to wired networking (802.11b is too slow and 802.11a is too unreliable.

4-0 out of 5 stars Mirror review of the HE102
I purchased the Netgear HE102 along with the HA501 cardbus card, after I had to return the Linksys WAP54A and WPC54A. There were many reasons why I had to return the Linksys. See my review of the WPC54A elsewhere on Amazon. At first, I was a little apprehensive about the Netgear after the Linksys saga. To my pleasant surprise, the Netgear's setup was a breeze. Every feature worked as advertised, including 152 bit WEP and Turbo Mode. I was able to set up the wireless LAN in less than 10 minutes. Actually, the thing practically worked right out of the box. And this is with Windows XP. Now that I have been using the network for a little while, I do have one minor complaint. There were a number of times when my connection was dropped. Although the WAP and the laptop were on different floors, the straight linear distance between the two is only about 50 feet. And I really don't expect the connection to drop in such short distance. Miraculously, the connection was okay in other parts of the house. So, you really need to play with the location, orientation, antennas, and channel selection of the WAP to achieve an optimal/compromised result. Since there is no guidance in how to do this, you have to experiment. It may take you a long time to find the right combination. After a couple of days of experimentation, I now settled on the one combination that gives me no dead spot in the entire house, but I have to give up on bandwidth. I don't get the full 72 Mbps unless the laptop is in the same room as the WAP. Everywhere else, 48 Mbps is the best that I can do, and it deteriorates very fast from there. From a different floor, I mostly get about 12 Mbps. This is a good compromise that is also acceptable for my purpose. Your mileage may vary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Stunner from Netgear
I am afraid that I am becoming somewhat of biased Netgear user. Having had nothing but unfettered success with their products, my selections are pretty much automatic. The card arrived and was plugged into my Dell Inspiron 7500 laptop. The installation was painless and in less than 5 minutes I was surfing the net over the wireless network. Granted, I have paired this with Netgear's HE-102 which probably contributes to the quality perfomance.

As I write this I am approximately 25m away from the WAP with about 1.5 walls and 1 floor. This gives me a 74% signal and a 24-48MBps transfer rate and a 36-54 MBps receive rate. The lowest rate I have seen in the house is 18 MBps which is still far better than 802.11b.

If you are on the fence, jump off on the side of 802.11a with Netgear's products. You won't be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works right out of the box
Bought both the HA501 802.11a PC Card and HE102 802.11a wireless access point. Installed and ran out of the box. Driver installation is a snap. Setup is a snap with Windows/XP. No reboot necessary. Changing wireless network SSID and setting WEP encryption is easy as well. I ran in turbo mode 72Mbps inside my house and connect to the cable modem for internet access. Very fast and good range too.
Monitoring the stations connecting and changing TCP/IP config via the AP web interface is very easy too. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW
I have been using Netgear Powerline in my house for almost 10 months some of that time with 4 computers. Have "horse hair plaster walls" and many doors. No problem with using the product and not worried about security issues like with wireless

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy, reliable networking for the network novice
Both my wife and I work from home two days per week, and we both need high speed Internet access to be our most productive. We created a network in a previous house by purchasing a router and running a cable between two office areas. Now we were in a new home and needed to setup our network again, and running a cable would have been a major construction project. What to do?

We immediately thought of a wireless network. But, as we did our research, we saw repeated reports of the network "dropping off" unexpectedly. Neither of us liked the idea of being in the middle of a discussion with a co-worker, boss, or client while looking at information online and having that information disappear. We wanted reliability and simplicty.

The answer? Powerline networking. New technology had overcome some of the earlier electrical interference problems with powerline networking. We already had a Netgear router from our previous home network that had worked flawlessly for several years. So we purchased the Netgear powerline adapter.

The setup couldn't be much easier: connect the adapter to the router with a standard supplied network cable and plug it in; in the second work location plug in a second adapter, and connect it to your second computer, in our case, my work-supplied laptop.

We've been using this product for 18 months without any problems. On rare occasions my laptop won't "find" the connection. If I unplug the adapter for a minute or two and plug it in again, I'm re-connected. My connection has never dropped off once I'm connected.

The powerline solution isn't quite as "elegant" as a wireless network; you do have to be plugged in to a power outlet, so you don't have the same mobility that you get with wireless. But if you're a serious teleworker, you probably have a work space established, and papers spread out around you anyway. You need to be "at work" not roaming around the yard with your laptop. And if your going to be at work for 8 to 10 hours your laptop will also need to be plugged into an outlet.

If you're looking for a reliable, easy to setup home network system, I highly recommend this Netgear product. ... Read more
