Lol Netgear routers. I had the exact model and had to thrash it because it kept throwing me off the network on the WPA2 channel (even with the most updated firmware). Moved over to a Cisco E2000 and works perfectly.

Im gonna take this for a spin. I feel like there are shady dealings from Time Warner. If this means the FCC is going to smash on TW to deliver the damn speed they advertise. I'm tired of this cop out "theoretical speed" crap. I dont give them "maybe" money, why should I get a "maybe" service?

TW is making me go into rage mode, too! In addition to their "theoretical speed" their cable seems to have "theoretical availability" and their DVRs "theoretical functionality". >: [

I personally think they are the dirtiest when it comes to throttling. They say only torrents but I know they do it to game consoles. My PS3 get nothing in terms of bandwidth I can't even hold a decent match like I use to.
