Will Not Stay Connected for More Than a Few Days....
2 November 2014
Summary: Joel P's "most helpful negative review nailed it." Like him, I'm also in the IT industry and fairly experienced. Even when you get this unit set up properly, get ready to see the yellow sign with black exclamation point (limited connectivity) down by the taskbar.
Summary: The product worked until today. I tried calling support...good luck. You will have to pay for that! Installation wasn't that bad, and it it seems straight forward, but you expect the product to last more than two months. The LED lights won't come on and the product is pretty much useless.
Summary: Disclaimer: I am a very experienced network technician. I am not a clueless user who is having a problem. This is a nice looking adapter, feels well made. I was hoping this bridge would work seamlessly with my Netgear cable modem/router, they are the same brand.
Summary: I purchased the Netgear Universal WiFi Internet Adapter hoping to hook up a new DVD player with internet capabilities, where I did not have a ethernet connection available. Set up was easy and it quickly found and configured to my router. I have a Cicso N router that gives me great coverage.
Summary: The only thing this received does well is dropping the connection after 30 seconds. Sometimes it stays connected for a few hours, in a good week maybe a day or two, then all of sudden for no good reason it goes haywire.
Summary: After a week of trying various things to get this unit initialized, I found reviews stating that it does not work with ATT 2WIRE routers (not very universal). Lacks adequate setup manual and customer support.
Summary: Originally bought this for a TV. This adapter was great at first, but once I started using it more regularly after a couple months, the reliability of the wi-fi connection became a major issue. Basically, after a few hours of use, the adapter will just randomly drop connectivity with your router.
Connection was not stable enough to support streaming applications

Summary: I purchased this device in order to connect my networked home theater receiver to my network. I have a Denon receiver that has an ethernet port but didn't come with wireless networking built in.
