Netgear WGR614 cable/DSL wireless router





Editors' note: Netgear has released a firmware update that adds support for WPA-PSK. You can download the update from the Netgear support site. (5/3/04)

With the WGR614 router, Netgear applies its sexy industrial design and consumer-friendly approach to the brave new world of 802.11g. The WGR614 is basically an 802.11g version of
Netgear's MR814, perhaps the best 802.11b router ever made. In most respects, the WGR614 lives up to this legacy, delivering not only effortless setup but also the fastest performance and longest operating range of any 802.11g router we've tested. Only two sticking points keep the WGR614 from earning a CNET Editors' Choice: its laggard performance in our mixed-mode test (when both 802.11g and 802.11b devices are running) and Netgear's new policy of forcing users to register in order to activate their warranty. Nonetheless, thanks to its stunning looks, ease of use, and low average selling price of just more than $100, the WGR614 is a great 802.11g buy for home users.
