Summary: We purchased this for our new network AV receiver. I wanted something quick and easy that would not have a lot of drops. I had looked at the thought of running a cat 5 to the home theater, and using a powerline wireless unit. Most of those ratings were not as good as the bridge wireless units. Well I saw this unit. The ratings were high and the price was very reasonable. We ordered this unit and we are very pleased.
Summary: It works but I get the minimal connection from the far point in the house (upstairs from the modem) to downstairs. However, I am working off a DSL line and it covers the full length of the house. It drives a 70" HD TV for Netflix.
Summary: Item was received on time. One out of the two pieces of router bridge rattles, like some part is loose inside. I did not return it as I needed it right away. It works. I am afraid that rattling piece my go bad.
Summary: This product was easy to set-up. The only concern was the external access to the DVR thru Slingbox when outside the house. I needed to call Slingbox to help with the port-to-port transfer process. This Netgear product however worked well.
Summary: Got mine and it's awesome. Streaming HD with no problem. Am getting 48 - 64 Mbps streaming in my house through two walls. This beats the moca coax device I was using and kills the powerline adapters I had tried.
Weak signal, weak performance, just a poor product

Summary: This was supposed to replace an older Netgear WAP. the device failed in all tests, throughput, range, signal quality, reliability. I own many Netgear products and am extremely happy with all of them but his device should not evern have the Netgear name stamped on it is just not what it's stated to be in any way or form. It gets a - poor rating.
Summary: This is an expensive product that simply fails to deliver on its promises. I get my phone and internet connections from the cable company. Since the phone switch board is in the basement, this is where the cable modem and consequently the router have to be placed as well. My basement being furnished with an office style ceiling with metal frames, the router's wifi signal has difficulty reaching all rooms on the second floor.
