Doesn't maintain stable connection

Allen, Amazon
28 October 2013
  • Summary: Installation was easy but maintaining a signal is near impossible. I was using it on my computer at first and I had to reboot multiple time just to get a signal. It usually disconnects from my router after 20 minutes.

Console Gaming Adapter does not adapt to loss of power

RobHiker, Amazon
5 March 2012
  • Summary: We purchased this item in order to get wireless N signal from out GameLounge GameFuel Extreme N router to a room which was not hardwired. For the price point, it looks like a great alternative to paying money to "the man" at Microsoft by getting their N adapter for $70.

Forgetful Adapter - Where is the configuration - Network Confusion

P. M. Lewis, Amazon
13 February 2012
  • Summary: In the first week I reset the adapter configuration three times. Finally I gave the device a assigned IP address (using manual configuration) which seemed to work. Then I noticed the other wireless devices on the network dropping signal, losing DHCP, etc.

Frustrating

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 January 2012
  • Summary: My unit loses it's WiFi connection after a few hours and has to be reset and re-powered to get a connection back. The unit is difficult to configure without Windows, the install disk only works from Windows. If you're not IP-savvy, this unit may not be for you.

Won't stay connected for more than 24 hours

Joel P, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: This device appeared to be quite easy to set up; however, after the initial setup with WPS, which went quite well, I was surprised to find the following day that it was not connected any longer. Went through the WPS setup again, very easy, quickly connected.

Defective Product and Bad Warranty Policy

Mike S, Amazon
24 April 2011
  • Summary: As other reviewers have pointed out and I have experienced first hand, this device constantly forgets its settings and has to be refreshed. It is large, expensive, and setup is slow, clunky, and painful. I bought this to attach to my DirecTV receiver.

Is there a rating lower than "1 star?"

JChampion, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • Summary: This device should be a plug and play instrument. It should be as simple as plug it in, maybe use a laptop to configure, and then turn it over to the video game/Blueray player/etc... but it's not that simple. It's not even close. So here's what bugs me..

really worthless

J. York, Amazon
27 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to use with my DirecTV HR21 DVR. I wanted to have the DVR online so I could download on-demand content and utilize the "multi-room" viewing feature. The initial configuration was reasonably straightforward but not without issues.
