Check out the specs on the Netgear and other web sites, to see if you
can find out which chip they use. If not, send an email to their Sales
or Tech Support Department and ask which chip they use in the unit(s)
you are considering.  So far, I don't think we've ever had a failure,
with anything from Netgear, but other companies make good products
