Piece of $hit

T. R. Boomer "Boomer", Amazon
8 December 2014
  • Summary: It lasted exactly 6 months. Long enough to be out of warranty, but certainly not the service life I expected. It started slowly dying and intermittently losing connection. This is not a reliable piece of equipment. It is inexpensive but it simply won't hold up. Six months and you need a new nic. In my opinion it is a POS. Don't buy it!!!!

Prob should be considered obsolete without updated drivers at least.

  • Summary: requires internet access to get what might be a windows 7 fix but cannot get that since I had no internet without wireless. which I need the adapter for. Needs driver CDs that actually support the device.

Failed in the first few days, and got very hot there after.

J. Deck, Amazon
3 July 2013
  • Summary: This is a brand we all know and feel that we can trust. To be honest, I did not expect what my roommate would think to do that may have taken a part in this failure. The antenna inside her laptop died. So a replacement in this form was decided to be her easiest and best option. However she did not have the necessary free USB ports on her laptop to make use of an additional device. So a powered USB hub was ordered at the same time.

Not compatible with all Wireless-N accesss points, even from Netgear

Robert Groshon, Amazon
29 April 2009
  • Summary: When I bought this device, I overlooked a significant detail in the specifications. The 802.11n standard can operate at both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. This adapter only transmits at 2.4 GHz. I also bought a Netgear WNHDE111 Wireless-N access point, which apparently only operates at 5 Ghz. So even though both devices support the 802.11n standard, and both are manufactured by Netgear, they can not work together.

Terrible Netgear Customer Support

Plusorminus30, Amazon
11 September 2008
  • Summary: The USB device worked OK but not have the speed I expected even sitting next to the router. The metal USB end fell out of the adapter, so I called Netgear because it was over the 30 Amazon return limit (it was only about 50 days). Netgear refused to take it back and exchange it even though it was clearly a workmanship issue. The warranty states "Netgear" will make a determination when the item arrives. Well they wouldn't even give me a RMA to get that far!

Issues with Computer detecting WN111v2

Craig Mcivor "CM", Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: Initially I had a lot of difficulty installing this product (item not detected by computer). Somehow I finally got it hooked up and it was OK until I had to reinstall reinstall my computer software. Since then I am unable to get my computer to detect this thing. Rather than continue with the aggravation I am going to bin it and get a different brand.
