Silly Netgear naming conventions

I recently told somebody to pick up a Netgear DG834G router to set up their wireless network. They duly went into PC World, asked and were given a DG834, then couldn’t get the wireless working. I was helping them over the phone and couldn’t understand why the settings didn’t exist, then discovered that the G-less DG834 is non-wireless. What a dumb naming convention. I wish I’d known that beforehand.
