Netgear WNCE3001 IEEE 802.11n (draft) 300 Mbps Wireless Bridge I really like it
2 weeks ago
Summary: I have purchased two LinkSys WES610N bridges in the past as well as one they replaced. All three failed after 2 Months. The Netgear WNCE3001 is working well. I believe it is a bit slower about 2 Mbps after testing them both many times but is very reliable it seems at this point. I really like it. I would purchase another one when needed.
Summary: Ordered this product to use on a printer. The Walmart.com ordering page: http://www.walmart.com/ip/NETGEAR-WNCE3001-100NAR-Universal-Dual-Band-Adapter-Black/37453770 made no mention of this item being REFURBISHED or DISCONTINUED. Needed set up software and guides according to the paperwork in the plain cardboard box it was rec'd in.
Summary: Netgear gave easy installation instructions, absolutely no problems with connection to television and getting the WiFi to work as expected. Now we can sling the DISH programming to the iPad which was the objective.
Excerpt: These devices are just what we needed to allow for monitoring of installed solar electric systems. The adapter is connected to the network RJ45 connector on the inverter (usually found in the basement of the house, adjacent to the main breaker panel) and the signal is translated to WiFi for carriage to the customer's router.
Excerpt: Very nice and easy to set up and use. Results in about 5 min. Its also portable, so you can use with other units. If the power is turned off,it resets itself. I have it going from one room to another thru a wall. So far, So good.
Summary: I have been using this product for three weeks. Setup was very easy. I am using it to connect my blue ray player to my home network so that I can get internet content (Netflix, Huluplus, etc.). My player has USB wireless devices available, but they all had very bad reviews. So I decided to go with the WNCE3001 for about the same price, just plugged it into the network port (cat 6). The speed is very good, can hardly tell that it is wireless.
Summary: I ordered this item because it says it works with with any device with an ethernet port. Well after 2 hours (at least) of attempting everything the directions said to do, it still didn't work. Not only that but it caused my computer to crash which took another 1/2 hour to reload. The entire house lost network service for 25 minutes. This is the third device I ordered that proported to connect my Blu ray player to the intenet, I will not be connecting it.
