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. Setting up the NETGEAR device was very easy although you will need a computer with a ethernet port in order to perform the initial setup (my MacBook Air laptop doesn't have one but luckily I had a spare Windows laptop that does).

Will Not Stay Connected for More Than a Few Days....

  • 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. If you're lucky, going into your PC's network settings and disabling/enabling the Ethernet adapter will help. Power cycling will sometimes work as well.

TRASH - Do not waste a penny buying this garbage.

  • Summary: The firmware easily corrupts, turning this device into a paperweight. The procedure for fixing it is so complicated and requires so many setting changes to your computer that only an expert computer geek would even try it. And Netgear is no help at all. You have to rely on instructions from geeks on their user forum. A total waste of money.

I'm so sending them back

  • Summary: Brought two of these and let me tell you guys. They work when they want to work. They will not keep a connection in spite of the close proximity of the wireless router. I thought I found a cheaper alternative to the "MadCatz" wireless adapter for 99 bucks. Looks like you get what you paid for. Which in this case is un-reliability.

There's a reason its cheap

  • Summary: I bought this several months ago to connect my Xbox 360 to my wifi network. I'll be honest- I was attracted to it because its quite a bit cheaper than the "official" adapter from Microsoft. I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" applies here. This device is advertised as WPS compatible. Having used it, I can confirm that it is not. Or maybe they just designed it to not be compatible with Netgear routers.

A waste of 35 bucks

  • Summary: I bought this product after my brother-in-law told me this was the way to go to stream movies from my computer to my xbox 360. Installation was a mess, this thing would not sync up to my wireless router (which is the same brand) so I had to use the plug-in method. After about an hour of trying to sync this up, I finally got it. I have been using this for roughly 3 weeks now, and I couldn't be more disappointed.
