5 out of 5 eggsInstalled 3 of these

Pros: Cheap, straight forward to configure. Just works!
Installed at three different clients, none has required any service since deployed.

Cons: If you use Verizon FIOS the default I.P and Subnet settings will conflict with this device. Which requires you to directly connect to the device with a laptop/desktop that you manually configure the I.P Information to meet the Netgears device needs in order to make changes.

Someone without the technical know how would be lost in this situation. Be nice if there was a USB configuration method to prevent/get around issues related to networks on different subnets or I.P addresses already in use the device is defaulted too.

2 out of 5 eggsMajor letdown

Pros: Nice admin interface, setup is easy, admin menus provide explanations of options for anything you would like to explore before changing

Cons: Simply does not perform, period. The N signal was available throughout most of my house despite only needing it in a certain area, but devices would connect and have internet access for about 5 minutes before the connection dropped completely. Changing the channel, output power, channel bandwidth, etc. had no impact. Even without channel interference, this device just wouldn't allow 2 iPhones to access the internet without being bounced after 5 minutes or so. Completely worthless.

Other Thoughts: I did not expect this product to perform all that well in the speed department given that it was wireless-N 150, but I needed an access point that would be hardwired to a main router and provide wireless access in a dead zone. I didn't plan on heavy streaming, just casual access with iPhones and the occasional laptop. The only reason this isn't a 1-star review is due to the easy setup and friendly interface.

5 out of 5 eggsLittle workhorse

Pros: Works great out of the box. Just make the necessary security config changes and it works!

Cons: No mounting kit. However, just use Command(TM) Velcro(TM) strips to hold it to the wall.

Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these running for various clients. It makes an excellent way to extend an existing wired network for modern wireless devices (iPads, netbooks, laptops, printers, etc).

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: I use this to add wireless networking to my existing wired Ethernet LAN. At 60 feet away the signal is still nice and strong. The web-management interface is easy to use, and doesn't force a reboot for every setting change. As long as you follow the included instruction booklet, everything works great.

Cons: Minor nit-pick: It doesn't come with a wall-mount kit, or even screw holes. It would've made my job easier if it did.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried using 801.11(n), since all my devices are 801.11(g), and I don't use WPS. I thought it was a little odd that they tell you to set your IP address manually while configuring the device, but I just followed the instructions and it worked fine.

2 out of 5 eggsDissappointed

Pros: Easy to set up. I've read that others have struggled with the set up, and I don't understand why. Netgear wired device reputation.

Cons: I returned the first one since it kept dropping the wireless. The ON/OFF schedule seemed not to matter after a couple of weeks. It just would not turn back on. The replacement continually asks for the WPA password even though it has never been changed. It would be nice to have an A/P with multiple SSID's. Overall, I will look for another brand as this one turned out to be a waste of money.

Other Thoughts: I should not have settled for something that did not have all the features I wanted.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: I indicated below that I did not recieve the Netgear installation CD. I didn't look hard enough. It fell out of the box and I didn't see it when I wrote my previous review. I found it. Nonetheless, I found setting up the Access Point without the CD easy and straight forward; just like setting up any other access point, but with a clear, easy to follow setup menu provided when logging into the Access Point. So, I changed my rating to 5 stars. So far, it is working great both with my laptop and my smart phone.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsNetgear Wireless-N 150 Access Point

Pros: Reasonable cost, seems to be working flawlessly both with my laptop and my smart phone. I found the setup simple and straight forward. The user name, password and default IP address are listed on the tag on the bottom of the unit. The setup menu was clean and straight forward. Save your changes after updating each page, though.

Cons: I would have give this 5 stars, but my package did not include the installation guide. Nonetheless, accessing the setup menu is the same as for any other access point and router I have worked with.

For those who are new to this, and didn't get the setup guide, here is how it works:

1. Plug the ethernet cable into one of the access point's ports and to an ethernet port on your computer.
2. Change the IP address on your computer's ethernet port to 192.168.0.XX (I used 192.168.0.10).
3. Open a web browser and type 192.168.0.100 into the URL field.
4. The setup menu comes up, type in "admin" for user id and "password" for the password. Then you can access the setup menu to make any changes you want. You need to save changes on each page before going to a new page in the setup menu.

If you don't know how to manually change your IP address or don't know what the URL field is in the browser, then you may want to get some help with the setup.

Other Thoughts: I'm not thrilled about the color (white), it stands out like a sore thumb. Blue to match my Netgear firewall would be nice.

4 out of 5 eggsHeadache to setup

Pros: Fast, reliable connections once setup correctly. Access point does not get that hot. Normal protocols and security. Runs at 2.4ghz but not 5ghz. I am able to leave my laptop Wireless Network adapter (Intel Centrino) to DHCP after finishing configuration to my home network. I am able to get into the Access Point with wireless connection after adjusting IP settings to my home network.

Cons: Very difficult to setup. Not for the non tech type. I would get 28800bps type connection when first connecting for five minutes. It eventually work itself out but every time thereafter that I attempted connection again, 28800bps speed again for first five minute. Flipping pages on internet was spastic even after 5 minutes. Tried firmware upgrade, same bad results. If you do a firmware upgrade, it changes all your settings back to defaults, thus go back to original IP static setup procedure. I disabled QoS in the Access Point menu and it connected fast right away every time thereafter. QoS is suppose to help download Media Streaming (like Netflix). I do not use those venues that demand that however, I don't have an issue downloading large files after disabling QoS on this Access Point. Download 10gb in just under 1min. But ye have been warned if you are looking to utilize the QoS feature.

Other Thoughts: I needed to hook up the cable directly to the Access Point at first with a static IP on my computer at 192.168.0.210 as the Access Point default Static IP is 192.168.0.100. Once in the Access Point menu, you can change IP to DHCP (not recommended as it can be difficult to determine the IP Address thereafter) or the static IP of your choice. I chose 192.168.1.199 as my main router is 192.168.1.100. Matching your Subnet (usually 255.255.255.0) & Gateway (usually 192.168.1.1) is a must. Matched DNS entries was needed for me to get on the internet with Comcast and my non-wireless router. Once you change the IP to either DHCP or Static different than 192.168.0.xxx, you will loose direct cable connection to the Access Point. Plug it into your Main Router available connection port at that point and you should be able to get back into the Access Point Menu using new IP address you statically assigned to it.
