Amazing Product

NETGEAR Powerline 200Mbps to N300 Wi-Fi Access Point (XAVNB2001)
NETGEAR Powerline 200Mbps to N300 Wi-Fi Access Point (XAVNB2001)

Pros: WOW! This product really solved my weak wireless signal problems. I'm very impressed by the signal that I get in every room of my house now that I have installed this NETGEAR product. Very easy to set up if you don't mind turing your secured signal into an unsecured signal. Newegg shipped this product FAST and the ordering process was fast and easy. Thanks Newegg!

Cons: I'm not going to mince words here, the instruction manual provided with this unit was useless, period. When the unit is installed it creates a wireless hot spot wherever you choose to plug it in which is great. However, the signal that is created is unsecure and there were ZERO instructions provided on how to secure this signal, so I had to encorperate the assistance of my IT professional at my office. There would be no way that the average person could install this product and secure the signal by themselves. I timed myself from start to finish and it took 10 minutes to install this unit without securing the signal and three hours to install after researching the internet on how to secure my wireless signal after install. There was no explanation in the instructions provided as to what would happen to the unit if the factory reset was activated, be careful here.

Overall Review: If you don't mind creating a wireless hotspot in your home or office using your exsisting wireless signal and leaving it unsecured then you won't have any problems installing this product. I feel strongly that if the product contained more detailed information on how to install the unit and secure the signal then this product is great for anyone. The installation disc provided with this unit would not run properly using windows Vista which caused some problems as well. This product however does what it says it will do and is worth the trouble.
