Summary: Although the DMA2100 isn't Win7 certified, it will work with this OS. However, to be able to view all the Internet TV content now available via Win7 Media Center, you must install a couple of inexpensive 3rd-party software widgets.
Summary: I bought this unit some time ago and had to wait until I upgraded to a wireless-N network. Please keep in mind that the best quality of streaming comes from a MediaPc that has a WIRED connection to your network.

Summary: I have tried an Xbox 360 (could not make it work and returned it) and then tried a plain old DVD/VCR recorder (tuner would only tune one channel) As a last ditch effort I decided to try this because it was from Amazon (thus would be easy to return) and also was only $105 with free shipping.
Summary: Although this device worked as advertised I've been disappointed with the content it provides. I can't blame the device but rather Windows Media Center. It would be a great improvement if the media center provided the same Internet content provided by a typical web browser.
Summary: Ill probably be buying another one for the rec room in the basement. As usual, Great service and shipping from NEWEGG !!!
Pros: Works just as described. Using it to extend the Media Center Capabilities and Data from our VMCPC and Home Server to the living room. Started off wireless but noticed some glitching while watching backed up DVDs. Now hardwired Cat 5e and it works flawlessly.
Cons: I only gave a 4 due to a little lag in response from when you hit a button on the remote to when the extender responds. Not bad but worth mentioning thatit can get a little annoying.
Summary: When Amazon first listed this product, it was priced at over $300, and IMO, not worth the money. But at under $120, this is quite a nice product. The cons of this extender include: - Limited video format support - Limited wireless reception - Supports Vista Media Center only (no XP) Most of my...
Summary: I don't have a Wireless N router or card in my PC, so I couldn't get this extender to work wirelessly (Wireless G signal was *just* short of standard TV quality.) But once I ran a cable direct from my PC to the extender, (and once I did a bit of network configuration), this device works very well,...
Summary: My family has been using the Linksys media extender for the better part of the last month. So far, it has been a good experience and we're very happy with the purchase. We're running Windows Vista Home Premium with a Q6600 Quad-Core processor, 4 GB of ram, and an Nvidia video 8800 GT video card.
Cons: Isn't configured to send a WOL packet to VMC. Hopefully Linksys will get smart and include this in a new firmware. Also have an issue once in a while where the extender will connect to the VMC for 5 seconds and pop back and said that it lost it's connection.
