Excellent product, very easy to setup and use. Glad someone found how to make a device that will allow electronic devices that can only take ethernet connectiion but are far away from a Router and running a Cat5 Cable is not an option.

I have Replay TV DVR that only takes ethernet cable to update TV Guide and due to this I was stuck with using this unit only at a location where I had access to ethernet cable, I bought the Netgear WNCE2001 and now I am able to use my Replay TV anywhere around the house.

I also tried connecting this to a 24 port switch and was able to plug in devices into the switch and access internet...so in essence it made my 24 port switch into a 24 port wireless switch.

WOW! I purchased the Netgear Universal Wifi Internet Adapter today and I was a little hesitant because it less expensive than other similar devices I've seen. Once I got home I opened the package and my Mac computer was connected to my WiFi Connection at home within minutes, so simple to set up. You can do a WPS automatic Connection if your wireless router supports that feature or you can set up the device using your computer (which is how I connected my device). I powered up my device and then connected the included ethernet cable to my Mac and opened the browser. The Netgear setup screen appeared and showed all the wifi networks available near me. I selected my network and less than a minute later I was connected. I suggest you connect the device wherever you're going to use it so you won't have to unplug and move the device like me. I purchased this adapter to connect my Samsung Blueray Player to the internet. Works perfectly, watching Netflix Streaming Movies and Listening to Pandora with no problems. Good range with this device as well, my wireless router (Belkin) is on the second floor of my house and the Netgear Internet Adapter is in the basement, works just fine.

Style Name: N300 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When we first got our PS3, I had looked and looked for something like this adapter but found nothing. (Our original 20GB doesn't have built-in wifi). Getting the PS3 connected to the internet turned into some of a chore, eventually settling down to a mini PC with wifi providing network connectivity via Internet Connection Sharing under WinXP. Not a good setup.

On the side, I also do work on PCs and Macs. Getting them online for the latest OS updates, drives, etc was always a task that involved transporting loads of files via USB drive and then adding a wifi dongle as needed. Not exactly ideal, but dragging an network cable around the place wasn't appealing either.

When the Netgear device came along, I was more than ready to give it a shot. Setting it up with our network info was quick and painless, just followed the onscreen instructions. Once done, I tested it with my netbook to make sure all was well. Within about 30 seconds, it was online and ready to go. Next came the PS3, which also accepted it without a hitch after half a minute or so. And finally, I started taking it around to various computers and plugging it in. Not a single item balked at using it, and transfer speeds were very good.

About the only complaint I could make about the unit is the time it takes to connect to your network initially. It's under a minute, but, I'm impatient. It certainly takes a good deal longer than any of the other wifi enabled devices we own. But, really, unless you're moving it around a lot, it isn't something you're likely to notice. (And you're likely to be more patient than me.)

One other thing I'd like to note is the dual power options. The unit comes with a small wallwart, but, you can power it up via USB port.

Disclaimer: I am a very experienced network technician. I am not a clueless user who is having a problem.

This is a nice looking adapter, feels well made. I was hoping this bridge would work seamlessly with my Netgear cable modem/router, they are the same brand. Big disappointment, and I really think Amazon needs to allow a rating of zero for products like this.

Setup attempt #1-4: Tried to connect using WPS, since both the brand new router and the adapter both have the feature. It will not connect for the first 8 times even though both router and bridge are less than 10' apart. Finally on the 9th attempt, it connects and works flawlessly... Suddenly while streaming Netflix the next evening it quits working and will no longer connect. Finally after a dozen attempts to reconnect during which time I repeatedly power cycle both the bridge and the Netgear router, am forced to do a factory reset. Again, same process - multiple attempts using WPS fail until it finally succeeds on the 10th or 12th try. Works again for 24 hours to the minute, and then disconnects again. Another factory reset, multiple failures using WPS. Getting suspicious, the next night I connect both a laptop and an Android device to the router to see if they lose connectivity also. No problem with them, but the bridge is once again dead. Finally figure I will manually configure this.

Setup attempt #5-7: Follow the steps in the user manual (written in absurd ChinEnglish) and connects on the first attempt. I am happy, thinking maybe the WPS just sucks on this device.

24 hours later to the minute from the time of connection, device again dies. It will not reconnect on a power cycle of either the bridge or the router, so another factory reset.
