Nope not kidding at all but I actually hope you are, because the Netgear routers I have set up were easier than Bigman.
In fact the very first router I ever even messed with was a Netgear and I had it setup in maybe 30-45 minutes.
What exactly was hard for you on it? If anyone ever spent 6 hours trying to set up a router they need to step away from the crack pipe or there was something wrong with the router.

If you were using Netgear's WNDA3100 usb adapter I can see you having trouble - but the router itself was a cakewalk from initial setup to stealthing it, about 45 minutes just like betterdan said. What model was it?

Maybe Albo wasn't used to the American way of doing things.

I'm pretty sure it was the same model as yours. That's what it looks like as far as I can remember. I installed in like a year and half ago, if not later, so I don't remember what was wrong with it. I'm just happy it was finished, and I could go home.. I think it took like an hour to set up, then the update wasn't working, it was corrupted or something, so I had to reset the router and try again. I don't really remember, maybe something like that. Who cares. You set yours up fine, and my friend has his working fine. That's all that matters.

Well that's good to hear it was probably something wrong with the router and not you hitting the crack pipe Albo.

I hate to resurrect an oldish thread but I'm trying to find a good Wireless N router with Gigabit and the ability to run DD-WRT or Tomato. Any suggestions for something around $50 or less? I'm not afraid to buy refurbished from Amazon, TD or Newegg. Thanks!

I would also like some USB port(s) on it so I can attach my printer to the network.

I decided to go with a D-Link 601 refurbished Wireless N from TigerDirect. Got it for $20 with shipping! It works like a freakin charm, way better than my Linksys did. Large file transfers and HD video doesn't even phase it.

Now I'm contemplating on what to do with the old wireless router . . .

Thought it would be funny to open it up to the neighborhood and just see how many connect to it. Or even redirect it to some other site to get them into trouble!
