  • 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.

Works great after you figure out how to set it up

  • Summary: I bought this adapter to connect my Yamaha RX-A730 A/V receiver to my Netgear R-6250 Dual Band Router. Initially, I could not make the connection until I discovered an incorrect setting in A730's network setup. Specifically, DHCP was set to "OFF" and it needed to be set to "ON" to make the connection. Once this change was made, the adapter connected to the router through the WPS process. But, as others have noted, the adapter would not remain connected.

Works as advertised

  • Summary: Product arrived as advertised. Was fairly easy to set up. Only, I had to search Google for the user / installation guide for this device as it did not come with any instructions. Tip: If you will be using your computer / laptop to configure this device, make sure you turn off existing internet connections (wireless and LAN!) Your computer needs to talk to this device directly to configure it.

Works about 93% of the time

  • Summary: The product arrived in good condition. It works most of the time, but occasionally cannot find the router signal or drops it for whatever reason. Once and awhile, I have to physically move the PC and wireless adapter right beside the router in order for it to reacquire the signal. This doesn't happen to often, but is a pain when it does. It's like the wireless adapter can't find the router signal suddenly for no apparent reason. Rebooting doesn't always fix the issue.

does the job, no fuss

  • Summary: Simple and easy connectivity makes this a recommended buy. Dual-band is just icing on the cake. Not designed for mobile use, but it will work.
  • Pros: Simple configuration. No-fuss connectivity.
  • Cons: When used as a mobile device, it requires two cables.

Got it up and running!

  • Summary: I just purchased this little WiFi adapter for my home entertainment system. It's hooked up to my Blu-Ray player for now to stream from my network. Installation was easy enough thru WPS. Upgraded the firmware (a must!)and away she went. Good signal strength from my Netgear WNDR4500 Dual Band Router and the streams are strong and constant. So Far....So Good! It's worth the bucks.

  • Excerpt: A bit expensive but saves routing a long Ethernet cable around the room.
