1 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: No change (price)

Cons: Mentioned in the original review about how these refurbs are sold all over everywhere in quantities, and think I see why now, In Michael S review, he mentions that Netgear will be happy to help resolve issues on these refurbs for only 39.99 :) more than what they ccost new. Guess there is a method to their madness

Other Thoughts: Will never use or recommend this company to anyone again - even people I don't like

Manufacturer Response:

Hi James,

We'd like to help if we can, although support for refurbished devices is limited. Can you tell us the problem you are experiencing? You can email us at newegg@netgear.com.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

1 out of 5 eggsRefurbs are a waste

Pros: Price on these refurbs

Cons: No driver disk as advertised, to get drivers, need to register. To register need to have serial number, which is blacked out. Netgear was far from 'helpful' and refuse to answer direct question. Their support people even outright lie, and one point claiming to pass me to a supervisor when in fact just to another rep

Other Thoughts: Really wonder how many of these things are just plain bad, in looking around these (refurbs ) are sold all over the world and available in quantity, further they refuse to tell you who does the refurb work, implying it may have been done by the Egg, so who knows what you get. Appears they get sold and simply refurbed over and over

Manufacturer Response:

Hi James,

You should be able to download the drivers without registering. Please email us at newegg@netgear.com and we can get you a copy of the Windows drivers -- please let us know what version you are on.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Good connectivity (like most 2.4 is better coverage than 5.0GHz.)

Coverage has been great, through an old plaster, main wall separating two houses. That is in both frequencies. It does heat up a bit with heavy use but unless you plan on DL'n a ton of stuff for a long time, w/o a cooler pad, you'll be fine. Even then, it just gets warmer.

Cons: None so far. Was on a GREAT sale. Can't beat that.

Other Thoughts: Purchased for an upgrade to someone using an older wireless G standard, and they've since noticed dramatic increases in coverage signal as well as speed and responsiveness. Works through a wall with 4 bars at about 25ft away from the user. They only use for watching online clips and movies, or web browsing. It works beautifully for that scenario. I only tried it with DL when testing after receiving it.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: None

Cons: I bought two of these and neither one was recognized by Windows 7 Pro. I only gave it 1 because 0 is not available.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Peter,

There is nothing we want more than to make things right and get you WNDA3100 working with your Windows. All you will need to do is email us at newegg@netgear.com with a copy and paste of your review-- more importantly include the serial number of your WNDA3100 to speed things up on our end.

Our apologies,

NETGEAR Team

5 out of 5 eggsUnbeatable WiFi for the price!

Pros: Came within 48 hours, I was worried of it due to being refurbished but my concerns were cast away when I plugged it in, I was getting download and upload speeds very similar to my cable connection, this is in an apartment complex with many devices and connections. Dual-band is a must these days due to WiFi clutter.

Cons: No drivers of any kind, they tell you to go to the site for the drivers but...what if you needed the WiFI to work to connect? It was not an issue for me as I had my PC connected but it can pose as a problem to others, keep this in mind.

Other Thoughts: None really, works %100 like it is supposed to, no drops in the WiFi unlike several others I have purchased (and returned).

4 out of 5 eggscareful with Netgear downloads

Pros: Inexpensive, brand-name wireless NIC

Cons: Refurbished with serial number inked out

Other Thoughts: There are several versions of this model, mine is a V2. Be certain you are matching the driver to the model and not using V3 software because its the newest release. Driver needed for Win 8.1 and Win 10 preview.

5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: I was a little hesitant getting a refurbished wireless adapter because of bad experiences in the past. But at $15 I figured it was safe enough to give it a shot. I have had this for about a month now and have been using it without a single problem.

It also came with a short USB extension cord which was a nice surprise.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes exactly what you need for a fair price.

Pros: Cheap. Works. Great adapter if you want to connect to a duel band signal.

Cons: It's big. Sticks out quite a bit farther than a nub.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked, nothing spectacular

Pros: Having a dual band router, I wanted to try a dual band Network adapter. I had read many reviews and knew heading in that the 5GHz range isn't as good, but gave it a try. They are right, the range isn't very good. I did connect with my router from 2nd to first floor with one to two bars, showing 54-80kbps speed.

I've purchased a LOT of the refurbed Netgear adapters, all have been the WNA3100, all have functioned as they should, and I guess this thing functions normal as well. The 2.4GHz range on this adapter was similar to that of the WNA3100. Going to move this to a PC on the first floor that is rather close to the router and see how it does.

Cons: Cable is a bit short, worked in the WNA3100 cradle just fine, which gives it a lot longer cable.

Other Thoughts: I really don't know if there is an advantage with the 5GHz range for me. I live in the country, I don't have interference, and the WNA3100 adapters I use, when in range, connect to my WNDRMAC router at 300Mbps as it is.

Considering switching to the new economical Asus AC router
