Netgear DGN2000 Wireless-N Modem Router - A Short Review
Being a tech-fan, I was happy to take this router off my friend's hands last night after they had recently purchased another one in an attempt to win the battle of Wireless connectivity in their house once and for all. They've been having problems getting Wireless signals to communicate through the thick walled house for as long as I can remember, so they purchased a Netgear DGN2000 router as they thought it might be the solution. But they were wrong.
It comes in a standard box, the same size as you'd expect for any other Netgear router. Various features are advertised on the front of the box, such as;
- High Speed
- Secure Connection
- Wi-Fi and Power On/Off Buttons
- Parental Controls
- Better Range
- Multiplayer Gaming
Nothing to be amazed at, it's all fairly bog-standard stuff which comes with pretty much all other household routers of today. However, the Netgear DGN2000 DOES offer 270Mb/s Wireless-N connectivity, which is pretty cool.

Some people have cut holes in the router for ventilation, often adding fans to improve air-flow and cooling but it's just too much effort for such a crappy router.
