NetGear RangeMax NEXT Wireless-N ADSL2+ Modem Review

The RangeMax router must have the unwieldiest name in a group of products that is collectively blessed with the clumsiest monickers we’ve come across in many a long day. But, perhaps to compensate for its bloated nomenclature, the router has a slimline design that allows you to lay it either flat or on its side, so that you can easily squeeze it onto a crowded desk or shelf.

The installation software provided with the RangeMax only runs on PCs, and the PDF manual was a bit annoying – there really should have been a proper printed manual to save time. However, once we skimmed through the instructions we were able to set the router up without any real problems.

OUR VERDICT

You’ll need to make the initial connection to your Mac with an Ethernet cable, but once that’s done it’s fairly easy to configure the router’s wireless features to set up a wireless network.
