Netgear N150 Wireless Router review

Netgear's N150 Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router DGN1000 should get respect for its long name

TODO alt text


We tested the wireless performance through file transfer speeds in three distance tests to see how the Netgear N150 Wireless Router performed in the real world.

We conducted same room, one room away (one brick-wall and a standard wooden floor away) and a 25m line-of-sight distance tests. The following results are the average transfer speed for a single large file compared to a number of other units.
