"it's got issues...."

chrislawson, CNET
10 November 2008
  • Pros: the set-up was relatively smooth. the on-screen display was very easy to navigate.
  • Cons: to obtain an HDTV signal, the unit had to be within 6 feet of the WRT30N router and for non-HDTV... within 15 feet of the router. video will freeze frequently. but audio still play. but once video freezes... it stays that way until unplugged.

  • Excerpt: "...device, I came across the Linksys DMA2100. I was confident that with the Linksys the product would do the job. Unfortunately it is totally unusable, firstly the software that came in the box states that it is Vista compatible; however I happened to run XP, after several attempts and hours of trying to load the operating software I was forced to call tech support.
