Reliability and Service: The Best Companies to Buy From
Wireless Gateways: No Brand Makes Its Mark in Reliability
Participants in this year's survey told us that none of the major brands of wireless gateways stood out on any measure of reliability. Netgear, which topped the chart last year, now rates average across the board. Readers complained about ease of use--in particular, the difficulty of initial setup--with all brands of wireless routers, but rated SMC's devices and chart newcomer Cisco's products the worst in that category.
