    Don't buy Netgear products if you expect good email support. I have made
    several requests for help and they do not respond.

    Problem I have: My WGR614 blocks some websites.

    I doubt that the netgear is blocking the sites on its own unless
    you have done something in its setup to make it do so.

    No, there is nothing blocked on setup whatsoever.

    I agree. But I did manage to get an email response, after a day or so,
    telling me that they did not provide support by email, but only by
    telephone (which means calling a premium-rate number here in the UK). I
    guess it's the capitalist way to want to make money, but I do somewhat
    resent their insistence on making money out of my discover that their
    product does not work properly.

    Maybe, with the benefit of hindsight, I can now sketch out a way of
    deciding which brand of product to get. Before purchase, pretend that
    you have bought one, and contact their email support address with a
    hypothetical problem. See if you get a potentially useful response or
    not. Is this ethical? I'm not sure.
