Well, gee, thanks for sharing that, we just got a new Netgear router today. I hope my luck's better than yours. I haven't got the tablet set up on it yet, so the jury's still out.

I had two linksys and had nothing but trouble with them. Our IS guy at work said to go with NetGear a couple years ago and have had no problems since. Who knows.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Not to worry, Gary. Like Barnyard's advice, I have been using Netgear for years. With the exception of one lightning hit, no problems at all. For that matter, I have also had excellent luck with Linksys.

Yup, but, that one bad apple, if not found, can ruin the rest of the apples.

I have used Net Gear hubs and routers for a number of years along with Link-sys and D-Link. I have had zero lemons although I have serviced a few networks that have had problems. Like all things created by man - nothing is perfect. In 20 years I have only had to replace one SMC hub due to failure.

Well, we have our router up & running, but it didn't come easy. The set-up instructions on both the Netgear router and on my wife's new Nextbook tablet were pretty poor. A geek would have figured it out a lot quicker, but until I downloaded Netgear Genie and then fumbled around the settings & such I couldn't get past an authentication problem. It turned out that the "radio" thingy was not turned on. There was certainly nothing about that in the instructions! All this computer lingo used now days is way past me, time was that I pretty well knew my way around it but I'm pretty much computer ignorant now days.

Glad you got it running, Gary. You are right, the instructions with the tables, especially, leave a bit to be desired.

Mr. Gary,
You might still find this video interested if Ms. Regina still has any questions.

Thanks, Roy, her's is not quite as fancy as that one and the video really just covered the basic stuff that we had figured out early on. Our issues were more with the router, although she still has some things to figure out on the tablet. It's all a learning process and she's figuring out things as she goes along. She'll have it along, in Feb., maybe she'll get some pointers from you then. Thanks again!

I got my wife a Kindle Fire HD for Christmas. We already have a wireless network, so setup was very easy. Basically, just turn it on. It recognizes and configures itself to the network. All I had to do was register it with Amazon and add her email and Amazon account settings. Much simpler than the "old days".

Rob:

You have your priorities in the right order :D :!:

Back in the day we used to call em gateways that were inline with our receivers, antenna switch hubs, demodulators and other switches that were connected to our main frames and other spooky stuff. Our transmit side was similar. All of it was encrypted to which made for a lot of fun. Course were were in the 200 to 500 bps era as well. I remember back when Win3.1 and a 14,400 bps modem was fast and you didn't even need a router unless you were on a T1 line. Today, most of the gear has new names for the same tasks - I guess that is progress. Took me awhile to get used to the term Router as well - although it does do exactly that - route signals.

Funny thing the net gear was recommended by my son a Navy geek. I bought the cheapest Apple router and it was four times the price of the net gear. It did not come with network cable and the cable cost as much as the net gear. Something wrong with this picture!
