Bad Purchase

FPC, Amazon

  • Summary: After first setting up the media extender it would not identify my network. Following the instructions provided by Cisco I could not get the extender to identify my network. I then called Cisco technical support to help with the problem.

Impossible to use when watching movies and need to skip forward or backwards

W. T. Wilson "Todd", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought 2 of these MCE's a year ago. The setup is OK. The video quality is great. But the negatives are huge. I will list those below: 1) the device is very sluggish to respond to the remote. Often times, you press a button and then wait 2-5 seconds (or more sometimes) for the device to respond.

linksys crap

  • Summary: I've used Linksys products in the past and have always found them to be mediocre at best. The dma 2100 is no exception. After googling media extenders and having read many reviews most came up with Linksys as the best to date for its size, quiet operation and amount of software offerings on board...

Good idea, but the software is not yet there...

  • Summary: I was excited when I say this product for sale for just under $100 and I thought that for that I would give it a try. The concept seems good, but I think Linksys jumped the gun on their release of this product.

  • Summary: I have gone thru 2 of these and HOURS and hours with Linksys tech support. It works for a while and quits and support cannot get it going again and seems shocked that I am not willing to spend 2 hrs resolving this. I did that several times but I will never buy Linksys products again.

Won't set up with Vista Home Ultimate

  • Summary: I really wanted this to work. Received it yesterday and spent several hours trying to get it to work. It would find the network, and the computer would find the MCE, but it would never get past the final stage.

Bad product it should be Free!

  • Summary: After working technical support for over an hour, it has come to the conclusion that this device does not work with Microsoft Windows Vista using the Ultimate edition. Both the extender and wireless router have been updated with the latest firmware.

Good NOT Great! Windows MC sucks!!!

Alexandre "Alexandre", Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: I had to return it, because of two reasons. First, it didn't "sync" quite good with my wireless router (Linksys WRT54GL, which is awesome, by the way!). Weak signal, or whatever??? Although it had been placed 5 ft. away from both - Vista PC and the router.

Shortcomings are too great

John Adams, Amazon
14 December 2008
  • Summary: Pros: * Codec support about the best of any media center extender (that isn't really saying much, of course) * Small * Silent * Cheap Cons: * Performance is unacceptable. This device does not have the horsepower to decode MP4 very well which is the whole reason I ordered the unit.

I want to love this product, but I can't.

Martinez, Amazon
6 June 2008
  • Summary: I am not unrealistic in my expectations. I didn't want this product to do anything except what the device was supposed to do. Unfortunately, I am disappointed at several aspects of the DMA-2100. I got a great deal on it. Instead of list price ($360) I got it for $150.
