Out of Date Product

Recent purchaser "Steve L. Dratz", Amazon
24 December 2014
  • Summary: This product sent in Dec. 2014 was manufactured in 2009 and is an out of date product. Easy installation. Huh! Manufacturer said after 2 hours on hold and with a tech that they no longer support this version. It is impossible to install. The company sent me a curt response saying they purposely send outdated and unsupported products to keep the price down.

Example of poor design!

NirJ "NirJ", Amazon
17 September 2014
  • Summary: This was a disappointment. I bought this so that my desktop computer which does not have wireless card can be wireless. But to my shock, product manufacturer did not put Windows 7 drivers in the firmware. Also no information on website or driver download location. Finally I plugged in my laptop, went to devices and clicked upgrade driver from device manager. Noted driver name. Copied in pen drive and installed in desktop computer.

Died in 2.5 months

Stephanie D. Welch, Amazon
27 August 2014
  • Summary: I owned this product for 2.5 months. It was great for the first two months. Then it began dropping its connection periodically, but would work again as soon as I unplugged and plugged it back in. Then one time, it finally decided not to reconnect. I'm a tech-savvy individual, and it's in as clean and hospitable an environment as any home electronic device could hope for. It's by far the soonest that any tech device I've ever purchased has gone defunct on me.

Joseph W., Amazon
25 August 2014
  • Summary: Side by side compared to a similar Cisco unit, these connect at 11Mbps while the Cisco unit connects at 104Mbps to the same wireless router. Bought two and both are going to Goodwill tomorrow. Never bought a Netgear product which I kept and used, should have known better. Plus these run hot so could create a fire hazard if you plug them into the back of your computer and do not have good ventilation.

did not work

Gary Bisogna, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • Summary: Did not work. I wasted time installing software according to instructions, but this Netgear product could not be recognized by my computer, perhaps because it operates using the horrible Windows 8. On a more positive note, the company took this useless product back.

counter productive product

Timothy M. Welchel, Amazon
23 July 2014
  • Summary: the drivers do not autoload. all instructions kept telling me that i needed to be connected to the internet to make the drivers work. the understood purpose of this product was so that i could get internet to my desktop PC because i don't have a LAN line in that part of the house. customer support for Netgear wanted to charge me $149 to find a fix for their own product.

Very disappointed in this adapter

teejay147 "Cindy T.", Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Very disappointed in this adapter. I have had it only 7 weeks and it does not work properly now. At first it was just that it would take an extended time to display webpages and email & I thought it was just the provider. However yesterday, after trying to get my email and a webpage to display, it just got hung up.

Should be nicknamed the Netgear Turtle

Ben Cook, Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: Ridiculously slow...unless you happen to place your computer next to the router itself. But then that would defeat the purpose of having a wifi adapter, wouldn't it? I was shocked at how well it worked while I was setting it up with the most recent drivers, but I was but two feet away from the router. I moved my computer into the adjacent (note: ten feet away) room and lo-and-behold the download speed dropped to a staggering 0.37 mbs. I couldn't believe my eyes!
