    Ok i just ordered the NETGEAR WGR614 V5, and my question is, what are the differences between the different versions? I know that the latest version is upto 7. I have looked online for the differences, but i cannot seem to find them.

    And whether or not the versions can be upgraded through a firmware update?

    naw, you cant upgrade v5 to v7, they are "different" routers.
    Same basic design, but the v7 uses newer hardware, different components but in the same basic design.

    The wgr614 is a decent router, i use one myself. But the range isnt that great.
    Try to see if you can find a router that maybe has a detachable antenna if you want to use a higher DB antenna.
    The one on the 614, isnt detachable, but you can always open it and replacement with an adapter.

    Or at least a netgear rangemax router.
