Wireless problems with Netgear DG834N and WN311B continued

I tried a lot of faffing about I finally detected the culprit – and it wasn’t the WN311b adapter which has given me more than few problems in the past…

J’accuse VOUS Netgear!

The problem was a fault with the DG834N – several faults actually.

Despite being only 18 months old – and conveniently out of warranty – parts of it where corroded. Not a good sign.

Plus, one of the internal transmitters had dropped off, presumably because the glue didn’t hold.

And the Pièce de résistance – the third transmitters was AWOL, missing.

The ()’s on the manufacturing line hadn’t even fitted all the transmitters and QC where obviously asleep because they passed it. Unless it was a deliberate cost saving decision. :S

Either way, I’m a bit miffed about this. I will get another of the same model because generally Netgear stuff is excellent – but not before I tear them a strip!

Faulty DG834N, corroded, loose and missing antena!

I’ll add more when I see what they have to say about themselves!
