Summary: After researching several reviews from magazines and web sites, I decided to give this a try (mainly because of such great reviews on its range). I bought three of these and set them up to bridge our wired network from the main church to the MC building, with the third WG102 connected to the other...
Summary: I've had previous experience with Netgear small business line of products and it was overall a good one. This particular access point is no different. I use it in a small business office so that employees with laptops and smartphones can connect to our network.
Works well and does much more than many WAP's I have seen.

Summary: I decided to try this model because I was disgusted with other brands of access points, mostly because they either seemed to have trouble supporting simultaneous multiple wireless connections, or would stop assigning new IP addresses (via DHCP) to wireless units requesting access until I reset or...
Summary: This unit works great but it took me 3 days to figure out how to configure it. Netgear support was no help, although they did respond to my e-mail - which just didn't read correctly, so their answer was of no help. The problem turned out that the laptop needed the address of the Verizon DNS server.
Summary: Netgear advertises in various places and documents and even mentions on the box that it offers wifi bridging -- it does NOT mention the caveat that it can only bridge open or WEP protected networks not WPA protected networks. Back to the store it goes.
Summary: We purchased this unit to bridge our LAN between two buildings. But it cannot support Bridging in WPA2 mode. The manual claims WPA2 (which it can do) and Bridge Mode (which it can do) but it cannot do BOTH at the same time.
Summary: This was a snap to set up due to excellent instructions. I must caution however that you must follow the instructions. The default subnet is strange (comes configured for 192.168.0.229 -- wouldn't 192.168.1.xxx be more likely what someone is already using?).
Summary: This product is quite solid... I recommend it to anyone looking for a wireless solution for their home or office. The item was shipped in a timely manner and arrived by the estimated delivery date. I was very pleased with my purchase, two thumbs up! -Chris
