3. Cisco owns it now. The equipment is good. What's your beef?

4. I just replaced a router from them because of weak signal strength

with a higher model from them that costs about twice as much and is supposed to have a stronger signal, but I'm getting the same crappy signal from the same areas of the house on my devices.

5. Try a WiFi signal booster (or range extender)

That will get you a stronger signal.

7. No.

 

As much as I hate the dishonest crooks at NetGear, they are not associated with the worse group of crooks at cisco. That was a nasty rumor started by an unknown person to harm NetGear. They are not. They have never been. They were started by Bay then bought by a Bell monopoly using money taken from the public by the crooks at Nortel. I know, because I worked for those crooks when they gave NetGear money. They're now independent. They're just simply a dishonest company rather than a larger an organized criminal group that you accuse them of being. They are not.

8. Sorry. I was thinking LinkSys. NetGear is not owned by Cisco - my bad.

10. And before the cisco fanbois try to get you banned...

 

the original spelling of that company is cisco with a lower-case c. I got banned from another forum for spelling it the new-style.

12. Banned for spelling it with a capital C? WTF? That's fucking weird.

 

Well, the LinkSys on my shelf says "Cisco Systems" in the "wireless active" light. I put 8" rabbit ears on it and that extended the range out into the yard by about 20'. All of the new routers (regardless of brand) have internal antennas. You can't even focus them. Mine are focused carefully to cover every part of the house and yard we use computers in. It's old, but it still works fine. The Westell DSL modem is even older - about 12 years old. It's still alive and kicking.

I'll stick with my older equipment for as long as it works.

9. It has been my experience that NetGear has a long history

of manufacturing sub-par product.

There is a reason that Cisco can demand their price, I guess.
