So u haven't have any problems with the netgear products. I ordered a netgear wireless hub and it was broken when i got it, so i returned it, no problems. but i haven't purchased another one yet. I just bought a new sony vaio laptop and it has wireless built in so i might take another shot at a wireless net work, i also have a ipaq pocket PC with 802.11b wireless. now my laptop is 802.11g but they are supposed to be backwards compatible. i am just unsure if i want another netgear or maybe another brand.
