Summary: The promise of the WNHDEB111 is not fulfilled due to the limitations imposed by Netgear and by the 5Ghz band used for Wireless N signal. In my application, base unit on the second floor is only provided with a fast ethernet input, so the lack of a Gigabit port is a design limit.
Summary: I bought this bridge/access point with a NetGear WNDR3300. I was formerly using an AirLink101 and Belkin router on the G-band of Wifi. I decided once I started streaming video and music to my XBOX360, while playing on-line multiplayer games, that an upgrade was needed to resolve lag.
Summary: Decided to give these a try as they appeared to work well for some people, unfortunately I'm having the problem reported by some others here and on the Netgear forums: installation is straightforward, connection speeds are excellent, and after a few minutes the connection starts randomly dropping.
Summary: This really is a superb system for networking. For a basic user, the setup could not be more simple. I placed both devices in the same room next to one another and connected one to my router and went off from there.
Summary: I purchased the pair of WNHDE111 5Ghz AP/Bridges to connect 2 x DIRECTV HD DVRs and an XBOX 360 to my broadband connection utilizing the very under used 5Ghz band. One bridge connects one DVR and the other connects the other DVR and the XBOX. Both bridges access my NETGEAR Dual Band Router.
Summary: I installed this on 3/8/2008. First off, I did have disconnects but found through Google that not using Auto mode helped, and once the Access Point was set to AP and the bridge to, ummm, Bridge, the disconnects became far far fewer.
Summary: After spending a fair bit of time on these boxes, I decided they were pointless and not worth the time and the money. The speed advantage is not apparent: I compared between this connection and a regular wireless (54Mb) connection, the latter was in fact a tad faster.
Summary: Anyone who has had the *pleasure* of setting up a wireless network with a Netgear router will probably have a bit of reluctance about jumping into the fray again with another product from that manufacturer but this kit is at the other end of the spectrum, as long as you ignore the supporting...
Summary: It's been a long time coming, getting everything *just so* on my home network, and the Netgear WNHDEB111 - 100NAS Wireless N Access Point has been a perfect finishing touch. I use this device specifically for my PS3 because the built-in wireless connection on the PS3 is too slow to properly stream...
Summary: My reason for purchasing this product was to provide connectivity with our wireless network for our Direct TV receiver. I had looked at several products but only a few (including this one) advertised that they would work with a Macintosh computer network.
