   Will that "flagship router" come with three-revisions-behind firmware
which mostly works, or with more current firmware which mostly doesn't?


   I can't tell you how excited I am by these "attractive deals".

Re: NETGEAR's Black Friday Home Networking Buyer's Guide

Sad to say: I'm switching from this awesome router to the eero, after many face palm moments. Why oh why won't you people support by phone (outside of 1 year) when I get stuck? Sheesh! Thanks for nuthin'
