Summary: " WARNING " THIS DEVICE WILL NOT STREAM AT 1080P. IT WILL STREAM ONLY AT 720P. I CONFIRMED THIS WITH PANASONIC.THEY DO NOT ADVERTISE THIS FACT, BUT WHEN I USED IT WITH HI DEF NETFLIX, ON MY 73 MITSUBISHI I NOTICED THE LACK OF DEFINITION. SO IF YOU OWEN A HI DEF TV, YOU HAVE JUST BEEN FOOLED BY THE PANASONIC CORPORATION AS I HAVE BEEN. PS PANASONIC HAS ALSO TOLD ME, THAT NONE OF THERE CURRENT BLUE RAY PLAYERS, IE 3D BLUE RAY. CAN STREAM 1080P.
Summary: So I am writing this review, because there seems to be a lot of bad info on here, and I wanted to share my experience so far. First of all I will qualify the setup that I am using I have COX cable broadband internet service "Preferred service" 18mbps D-Link Router N+300 DIR-655 Panasonic TC-P42G25 Installation: TV is approximately 25FT downstairs from router which construction of downstairs is cylinder block.
Summary: I hesitated to purchase the wifi adapter simply because I was scared. I read through the reviews that others had posted and figured, "Hell, I am not even sure what an ethernet is, so why bother." On a whim I hit "add to cart". That was probably the most difficult part of the entire set up. As soon as the adapter was plugged in to the set (Panasonic Viera 50 in.) it began to download updates. All I had to do was enter the password for my network. That is it.
Summary: Let's see, it arrived, I plugged it into the Panasonic VIERA TC-P42G25, and 30 seconds later I had full wireless connectivity. Within a few minutes I had Amazon video on demand up and running and was scrolling through movies and TV shows. Excellent connection strength. Wireless router is downstairs and about 40' away, but it's streaming shows beautifully. If you have a wireless capable Panasonic TV, you've gotta get this accessory!
Summary: This gadget works great. Our wireless source is upstairs and at the other end of the house. The signal quality is excellent. Tried 2 other "Universal LAN adapters" that did not work. The instructions with the Panasonic Blue Ray DVD player we purchased said to only use this adapter and I should have listened and saved alot of time.
Summary: Does the job, yea, but if you want to stream HD from Amazon or Netflix its choppy. You are far better with a cable network connection for HD. but if you don't have that option, it does the job. So I give it a 3 out of 5. The pros is it is easy to configure and connect. Easy access on the side of the TV, but it does block the 2nd USB slot which is unfortunate. Since it was made by Panasonic for their own TV's they should have had a better design.
Summary: Bought this Panasonic component to assure it worked well with my Panasonic TV (Panasonic VIERA 50-Inch 1080p Plasma HDTV). The TV has two USB ports. Do you think both can be used when this LAN adapter is in one of them? No. The adapter bulges both north and south of the actual USB connector, making the second port inaccessible. One would think that one hand of Panasonic doesn't pay attention to what the other is doing.
Summary: I worked for four hours with Pannasonic rep and my router, opening ports. Still wouldn't work. Called back to Panasonic and finally I was told the LAN adapter only had a ten foot range. What good is that? Isn't the point in having the adapter so you can access your wireless without being in the same room as your router. If my computer and router were in the same room as the TV I could just run a wire.
Summary: Okay, my "credentials": I have purchased this unit, a Panasonic DMP-BD85K WiFi Enabled Blu-Ray Disc Player (Black), a Panasonic VIERA TC-P42G25 42-Inch 1080p Plasma HDTV, and a Netgear WNDA3100v2 usb WiFi adapter for use on my DishNetwork DVR. I have a NETGEAR RangeMax Wireless-N300 Gigabit Router with USB WNR3500L and a 6Mb down DSL connection.
Summary: I purchased this adaptor so I can watch high-def Netflix movies with my Panasonic blu-ray player. The box comes with a brochure which really has no operating instructions on it, just specifications. The box also contains an extension USB wire to help obtain a slightly better signal. As soon as I plugged the wire and adaptor into the front of the player, the player's "Network Easy Setting" program began.
