I bought a Netgear DG834Gv1 54G wireless modem router when I first took out a broadband package with my ISP some 7 - 8 years ago. It has proven to be fairly easy to setup and will do it's best to keep connection when there's a drop in connection. This is more of a problem with the ISP than the router. I was given a version 2 of this router by a friend who just couldn't get his to work. All I did was to hard reset it using the pin-hole on the back plate, rebooted it and set it up just like my… Read Full Review

Easy to set up. It worked great for a few weeks; then connectivity issues started :-(
Router states that it is connected to ADSL and shows poll statistics, all physical indicators point to a connected router, however connectivity is non-existent until the router is rebooted.
Not using any 'special' features (DHCP, Wireless, MAC filters etc..).

If you want to use WDS don't buy this product. The on-line manuals indicate support for this functionality but it is not supported on the latest firmware.
In addition it continually connected at a considerably lower speed than my 4 year old Ozenda router. 7Mb compared to 8Mb.
It is easy to set up and use but from my experience it "doesn't do what it says on the box" and I was disappointed to see it not connecting at the same speed as my old modem/router.

Not had a problem with overheating. This router runs very cool especially when set up vertically (ie with feet), unlike the D-Link DSL-G604T it replaced, which ran hot and was frequently unreliable. I bought this brand as it was recommended by an IT professional who sees plenty of them. Sound advice, from my own experience. And dead easy to set up and secure. Recommended? - definitely… Read Full Review

Sky broadband gave us this router when we signed up. It worked straight out of the box. In 6 months, I think I've only had to reset the thing once. Compared to a lot of other home routers, that's excellent.
Things I miss though: a QoS (quality of service) feature for prioritising internet gaming traffic. The ability to kick an IP address from the DHCP server.
These are reasonably advanced functions though. I've worked with networks a fair bit and I like to have lots of toys available.

This product is excellent. I got it working straight away and was very happy until...... I Found loads of "dead spots" in the house. It seemed to work sometimes and then not others. In the end I have figured out what is the issue. I use a video sender from my Sky box to another TV in the house. Turned this off and hey presto - wireless working everywhere. I guess I need to check on which frequency it was sending and try to get them on separate. Anyway - one to watch out for. I now have my main… Read Full Review

Having just gone online and performed a number of searches, I have just realised that I am not the only person having problems with these routers/modems.
I acquired the Netgear DG834G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Firewall Router as part of a package when I subscribed to Sky Broadband. I have had nothing but trouble with it since I set it up. I have now followed the advice I found on the web, and I have attached the "feet" to enable the router to stand on one end. Allegedly, this will cure the… Read Full Review

I bought 2 of these as they seemed good value. So good in fact, I bought them because I couldn't not. I did not even have a home for 1 of them, but I gave it to my mum in the end. She had a Speedtouch 330 modem which kept kicking her offline, and the Netgear DG834G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Firewall Router solved that problem straight away. I love them, and I am about to buy another. They are so simple to set up and they work very well. Good wireless reception as well.
I love it! Can someone… Read Full Review

For months now I've been struggling with my BT 105 Voyager ADSL modem using the Eciadsl Linux driver, but with the repeated syncronisation problems, disconnections and general unpredictability I decided it was time to invest in an Ethernet modem. Then I discovered the Netgear DG834G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Firewall Router on Amazon.
This is an awesome piece of all in one hardware, that's a real dream to configure through Firefox/IE (great idea). It's reliable, secure and fast. I only wish… Read Full Review

I am extremely proud of being the owner of a wonderful Netgear DG384G wireless router. I've only had it a few days, but I can safely say that nobody will regret this buy!
Since we are good customers, AOL decided to give us a free wireless router as a little present. This definitely wasn't a cheap present! The router itself is worth over £65!
The router is both a wireless connector and an Ethernet switchboard. Therefore you've got two types of good routers in one! The wireless signals… Read Full Review

I purchased the Netgear DG834G in November 2005 as my Belkin Router decided to pack up 2 months out of warranty.
Connected it up with no problems (I am not the most experienced Networker!) It was much easier than the Belkin.
It appears to have a good range but I am unable to test it at the moment as my laptop in for repair.
There's not really any more you can say ..I plugged it in and it has worked ever since… Read Full Review

I have owned the Netgear DG834G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Firewall Router for more than 3 months to date. It's fantastic, and it is easy to install, though I was misguided by AOL's customer care initially, it's on since installation. It is excellent, great value for money, and it works throughout my house. I bought this as there was no telephone point in my study room, and I have no regrets. I have recommended this router to many friends… Read Full Review
