Our neighbors were hit by lighting on Sunday. The power surge killed one of our TV boxes, my network router and reset every piece of electronics in the house including the AC thermostats, alarms, etc. Took 3 days to get my network back together. Netgear is now on my crap list. Short story is after configuring everything, it was taking up to 5 minutes to open files, locally or over the network. Tech support said to return the router, but there was nothing wrong with it. ???? Go linksys, our stuff works for a year or so... sometimes. I LOVE computers.
