The WNCE2001 Wi-Fi Adapter 12/30/2014 6:51:29 AM

Pros: this sets up Very easy! with any computer either a laptop or desktop you simply plug it into the port open your browser and type wnce2001 and your browser goes to the setup page for the wireless adapter, simply follow the instructions if gives you on the screen by just selecting the wireless connection that's your and enter the password in like it says. the rest of the setup is auto and easy and fast! I have had this since 2011 and have not had a problem with it since! my wife has been using it on her computer ever since streaming movies and everything else in that matter that a woman would do. haven't really used it on gaming to try it out in that matter "since the router is hard wired into my computer" I liked it so much I bought me a 2nd one and plugged into our bluray player in our living room to stream movies from Netflix and so on and it does flawlessly, since I already had one setup took about 82 seconds and it was up and running

Cons: could have been a little cheaper but I guess atleast its staying strong

Excellent Product 9/23/2014 12:28:29 PM

Pros: Very small size.
Can be powered by USB.
Easy setup using WPS or web browser.
Can be used to create a wireless switch.

Cons: Under periods of heavy usage it can run very warm.

Overall Review: I use this in my home office, which is in the attic 30 feet and 2 floors above the router, with floors and a wall impeding the signal. I connected this little device to a 4 port gigabit switch, creating a wireless switch. There are 2 desktop computers and a network multifunction printer connected to the switch. This device has never given me a minute of trouble, and it has run 24/7 for over 2 years in an attic whose temperature has exceeded 100 degrees many times in the summer months, and dropped below 35 degrees in winter months. I have it 2 feet away from any other electronics, sitting on a shoe box, so it has plenty of ventilation. Bandwidth is excellent, I have downloaded files from the internet at over 100mbs, and it does not bottleneck file transfers across the network. What is even more amazing to me is that the area I live in is saturated with wireless networks-at least 8, yet I detect no interference. All in all , an excellent product.

Solid device 2/27/2014 12:43:58 PM

Pros: Simple to setup, haven't had one fail yet.

Cons: None

Overall Review: We use these to give copy machines a wireless connection. It's especially useful in trailers at refineries where all they usually have is a 4G wireless hotspot device. These units are in dirty environments, and I have had zero complaints.

died after 3 years 1/31/2014 7:22:55 AM

Pros: Set up was fairly easy. worked well for 3 years.

Cons: died yesterday.
was very hot to the touch. all the lights were out, even though it was plugged in.
took a temp gun to it and it read 110 degrees F.
little concerned what it would have done if I hadn't noticed it.

Overall Review: I gave it 3 stars because it did work fine when it worked.
no issues due to power outages or whatever and kept its settings.
too bad it died so quickly.
probably won't buy again due to the price.

Stay away 1/1/2014 3:16:32 PM

Pros: None that I would consider.

Cons: Will not stay connected, random disconnects, Netgear support is non-existant.

Overall Review: Customer reviews aren't always a good way to decide on a product I guess. How this got 4 stars is surprising since most of the issues are the same.

Do not buy 12/24/2013 9:44:23 AM

Pros: None

Cons: Do not purchase this. I bought this for my Blu ray player and every time I tried to set this up it tells me I need to get closer to my router. The last several times I tried to set it up I was right next to the router ( 1 feet away ). I even reset the device and still doesn't work. I had to purchase a new wifi bridge adapter. After using the "other" new device the blu-ray works fine.

Overall Review: I tried to call up tech support and they were not help.

Don't waste your money on this 11/19/2013 4:49:24 PM

Pros: Was easy to setup and was great when it worked.

Cons: Right after the 90 days warranty(of coarse), the adapter stopped working. Tried everything the techs from netgear suggested and was never able to make it work again. I have to pay to sent it back for exchange.
