Just last month, one of those Fools, eblasy, touched on the tasty tailwinds working in Netgear's favor: "If you look at all the restaurants starting to give free wi-fi, they'll be looking for a company to supply them and that company could very well be NetGear. They supply quality and easy set up wi-fi and router technology, so it's not really that hard to believe that they could be the next big thing."
