Great unit for behind the NAT Firewall

  • Summary: All I did was plug it in and turn it on. I read a thousand reviews and this unit showed promise, I was shocked at the ease of installation!! Once I was online I was able to configure it through my web browser... Done!! I combined this with the Netgear - WAG511 on a WinXP laptop.

Easy to use, still not up to 802.11b range though.

  • Summary: This system was EASY to install. Basically, you plug it in and it broadcasts. It's speed level is fantastic. However, I found that its range was not nearly as good as with my SMC 802.11b system.

poor technical support

29 February 2004
  • Summary: The User's Guide for this product says "estimated setup time is 10 to 15 minutes." It took me over 10 hours to get this system to work in conjunction with a Netgear Wireless PCI Adapter. I had to hire a network expert to get it to work.

Works right out of the box

Li Sun, Amazon
18 February 2004
  • Summary: Bought both the HA501 802.11a PC Card and HE102 802.11a wireless access point. Installed and ran out of the box. Driver installation is a snap. Setup is a snap with Windows/XP. No reboot necessary. Changing wireless network SSID and setting WEP encryption is easy as well.

Works in a straight line

  • Summary: While this product works as advertised, I'll be returning it today. The problem is that there must be a DIRECT line-of-sight connection between the wireless access point and the wireless adapter.

Another great Netgear product that meets expectations!

Todd Baker, Amazon
13 January 2004
  • Summary: The HE102 is a great product that meets all of the expectations of 802.11a technology. Contrary to some other reviews here, this product does indeed work through walls, and work well! I am currently writing this on my laptop (with a netgear adapter) about 60 feet, one floor, and about 3 walls away.

Not a Problem

Amazon
17 December 2003
  • Summary: I am writing this review from my second story bedroom about 50 feet or so from the access point. The speed is still great. Often better than what my company has through a T-1. The set-up was very easy. One of the easiest installations I have ever had.

Easy install, fast speeds, great product, great experience

Amazon
11 December 2003
  • Summary: I did a lot of research before purchasing a solution for my home wireless network. I read a lot of horror stories about people having a hard time setting things up, connections dropping, etc., so I was a little spooked about spending a lot of money for something that might be a pain.

Works great..... if you are within 6 feet.

  • Summary: OK, so I work in the IT industry and I concider my self very well versed in current computer technology. 802.11a was a technology that has somewhat become burried since the huge hype it experienced at the start of this year.
