    Netgear N 150 router runs at 2.4 GHz. Called TiVo on the setup (I had switch set wrong w/o my reading glasses). But the tech was concerned that the device lights green instead of blue. Green supposedly indicates G router, a slower transfer vs faster N router faster where the LEDs are blue.

    Does anyone know if the LEDs maybe indicate the xmit frequency in GHz with green = 2.4 GHz and blue = 5 GHz? But if so, do I get N router faster performance even with the green light?

    Haven't downloaded Netflix or anything other than the setup data.

    Input is appreciated.

    That router is not a true wireless N router. Green Does mean 2.4 and 5 for blue

    You are probably only getting about 75/75 on the speed... maybe less

    Whoa! If so then Netgear is lying in its specs and branding. I doubt it.
    802.11n supports 2.4 GHz, 3.6 GHz (didn't know that) and 5 GHz

    BTW I just found that TiVo does have a LED color page that states exactly what you say in your reply regarding modulation frequencies.

    The WV...
    In your link just check the specs: "SOME N-FEATURES"

    It appears a very "basic" router and the "comparisons" to other N-gear products certainly seems to indicate that!

    Correct

    IEEEĀ® 802.11 b/g 2.4 GHz with some n features
