Pros:Easy to install, fast wireless router!

Cons:None yet.

The Bottom Line: Netgear N150 wireless router is easy to install N class router and a great high speed heart for your wireless network


I went to Comcast to reduce my cable bill and drop some premium channels.  I ended up with more channels than ever, twenty dollars a month less on my bill, a new high speed modem and a new high speed wireless router. 

I got the Netgear N150 Wireless Router.  Technically it remains the property of Comcast, but there is no monthly fee, and now my old Belkin G has been replaces by the Netgear N as the heart of my wireless network.  My home network is a busy place, one main computer in my bedroom is the incoming cable line, and the wireless sends the net signal to my other computers, my sons Mac laptop and our Playstation 3.   A wireless network is essential.

Setup

Set up was amazingly simple with the Netgear N 150.  I put in the CD with the software and followed the instructions.  First it tests your network and identifies your modem and net connection and then guides you through the process.  It is pretty simple, you put the router between your computer and your modem. An ethernet cable runs from the cable to the input on the Router, and then an ethernet wire runs from the router to the computer.  You could wire 4 hard devices to the router.

After that, the router checks to make sure everthing is working and once that is verified, you can set up your wireless network setting up security passwords and a name for your network.  Your new wireless router is up and running at N speeds!  

My son located the new wireless network and entered the new password to get online with his Mac. I reset the PS3 with the new network name and password as well as my household music server, and then my home wireless network was all online at the new faster N speeds.   The whole process took perhaps 20 minutes.

N speed tests.

My son was happy with quicker online time on his Mac and web pages and youtube videos loaded faster in the living room.  The router sends the signal throughout the house with no problems.  My favorite online game Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft easily loaded with a decent frame rate and low lag time. Some times I like to play WoW Cataclysm in my living room, because I can switch from a small computer screen to my movie screen with a flip of a switch.  Then the world of Azeroth appears on my big screen!  G speeds allowed me to play the game, but N speeds really seem to make everything run faster.

I occasionally had lag problems watching Youtube videos in my living room, becasue streaming video is sometimes slowed down. With N speeds I can watch California Gurls with Kate Perry shooting whip cream out of her specially designed bra with no problems.

My son noticed an improved frame rate on his Mac computer when he plays World of Warcraft he tells me that his frame rate has gone from an average of 40 frames per second to over 60 fps.  The faster through speeds of the N router have improved overall responses of all devices on our wireless network.

Cost / Value

Mine was FREE so it was a great value. They run about $80.00 if you pick them up at a store like Office Max or Staples.  Technology seems to always cost the same with advances, so this new N router costs about the same as a G router cost me a couple years ago. 

Summary

I love my new Negear N 150 Wireless router. It was free from Comcast, it was very easy to install and set up with my wireless network and we have noticed improvments in all our wireless devices.    I gave the new Netgear N 150 Wireless Router 5 stars.
