Summary: I called Netgear a few days ago because my computer would never connect to my Wireless Router its a Netgear product I tried 2 different wireless adapters they would not connect. A friend had no problem connecting with his Laptop with Windows. He was not using a dongle / Wireless Adapter. I called Netgear and he said it won't work with Linux, the Dongles they are made for Windows only. I am using the Range Extender wnce 2000. Worked fine after setup with manual included.
good for basic data transfer but not for streaming

Summary: This item worked and could probably be used for some applications but it did not really meet my needs. I purchased this to connect my home audio system to my home network and the internet for streaming music. It did not seem to do a great job keeping up with the songs that I was streaming from my desktop computer.
Summary: This device is easy enough to deploy and manage, but the range is poor. We use this device to get wifi to our TiVo (which for some stupid reason has an Ethernet port and no wifi). It deploys really easily, basically just plug and go. But the range is poor. Admittedly our bedroom is a long way from the wifi access point across the house, so bandwidth issues are to be expected.
Summary: I purchased this so I could watch Netflix on my family room big screen. Regretfully, it was not what I needed. It didn't say in the product description, that the TV needed to have wifi already. Mine does not. I thought this product produced wifi capability without all the cables/wires. I think I would recommend this if you DO have a wifi TV that has a bunch of wires and you want to get rid of the wires. But I cannot be sure. It will be returned to WalMart today.
Summary: The adapter connect to my Cisco router with no problem and a strong signal. They are only 30 ft apart. But after about 2 hours the signal drops for about 10 seconds and then reconnects this happens about every 2 hours. For what I am using it for it does not matter but, if you are streaming a movie it could be a problem. I stream movies through the router with no problem so it looks like the problem is with the adapter.
Summary: I initially had trouble getting this device to find my home network and connect, so I called Netgear to see if they could help. They informed me that they can only do email support with refurbished items, and the person on the phone refused to help me at all. I will never buy another Netgear product, although, I did finally get this to work. The seller and the packaging were fine, but Netgear needs to rethink their customer support.
netgear wnce2001 v sony wifi dongle for bravia tv does not work
14 June 2011
Summary: I purchased NETGEAR WNCE2001 Universal WiFi Internet Adapter because I did web searches to see if it was compatible with my new sony bravia ex723. The opinion was that it would work. It does not work although I had a problem with mine where I had to hold the connection in for it to work. I had to return it and fair play to Amazon they fully refunded inc all freight charges.
Summary: Ich hatte mich in einem Telekom laden bequatschen lassen, dass man mit diesen einfachen Netgear Wlan Adapter ohne weiteres das Entertainment-Paket, sowie Internet über eine zwischengeschalteten Desktop-Switch betreiben könnte. Nach nun gut 5 Tagen tüfteln bin ich einiges schlauer. Man muss auch sagen, dass das Tüfteln auch ziemlich im Router liegt, der nicht gerade der Beste ist (Speedport W724V).
