3.0 out of 5 stars Buggy but working November 1, 2008
By CT
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The manufacturer settings and the software itself are lame. I couldn't get a connection to the device, and running software just got the "error: call customer support" line. Tried resetting the device, tried a few different computers; FAQs and support at the site are lacking. After a long time spent searching i found some useful info on setting it up manually. Search for "How can i configure my pelican wireless gaming adapter?" in google, and choose the first result from the yahoo domain. Here's the text, just in case:

Using Windows XP or Vista:

Turn off the wireless feature of the PC you will be using to setup the adapter.

· Plug the adapter into your PC's Ethernet port and wait at least 3 minutes for the adapter to boot up before continuing to the next step.

· Select the "Start Menu" icon and click on Control Panel.

· Select "Network and Sharing Center".

· From the left sidebar, select the "Manage Network Connections" option.

· Right click the "Local Network" icon and select the properties option.

· Highlight the IPv4 option and click the properties tab.

· Select the "Use the following IP address" option and enter this IP address: 192.168.1.222

· Enter the following address for Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

· Enter the following address for Default gateway: 192.168.1.1

· Press the OK tab and close the "Local Area Connection" window.

· Open the internet browser of your choice and enter 192.168.1.99 in the address or location field.

· If a "Windows Dialogue box" appears, enter Username: "Admin" and leave password blank. If no windows box appeared, continue to next step.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product...Worth your money! August 14, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this product recently and I was surprized to see its size. From the pictures on the web it looked kind of bulky however it is no more than the size of a sandwich and surprising light too.

The setup was a cakewalk if you followed the instructions and you are online in a flash. I am very much satisfied with this product.

Great Value for Money! The difference is in the price.. the microsoft one costs $100 and the pelican one costs $70 Retail. It is supposed to do the same thing as the Microsoft wireless adapter (connect to a router) but only cheaper and without using up a usb port.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware August 11, 2008
I recently moved & lost my XBox 360 wireless network adapter, so that put me in the unfortunate situation of A) spending $100 on another wireless adapter or B) find a cheaper solution.

I went with option B and purchased the Pelican Wireless Network Adapter for XBox 360. Less than 24 hours after the fact, I regret this decision and will be taking this back. After configuring it on my computer, I went to hook it up to my 360. Failed test after failed test, I call Microsoft's customer service. They inform me that the Pelican Wireless Network Adapter is not supported by the 360 and it rarely works on the 360.

So, learn from my mistake & stay away from this devices.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit of work, but worth it January 2, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I read a lot of reviews on this product and was a bit concerned about purchasing. I bit the bullet, because I needed a way to hook up entertainment center items to my wireless network. This adapter was a little difficult to set up, but I've learned that wireless networks are never as easy as advertised, so I was not surprised. Still only took me about a half hour to get up and running. My main goal was to get internet access to my media room components, but didn't want to run wires throughout the house. This product did exactly what I needed.

The beauty of this adapter is that it uses ethernet, and can therefore be hooked up to another router and voila, you have multiple items connected to your wireless network. I've got the adapter plugged into a linksys router I had lying around so that now both my Xbox 360 and my Directv receiver are both hooked up to the wireless network. I can add any other components that have an ethernet adapter now by just using a network cable and the appropriate switches/routers.

Pros:
* Can be used as a wireless access point allowing your wireless signal much more flexibility.

Cons:
* Setup was a little painful - probably would be frustrating for the first-time networker.

1.0 out of 5 stars A lot of work for no results January 25, 2009
My 15 y/o bought this for his Xbox 360. We spent 3 days trying to get this thing to work, called support (no help at all) and eventually returned the item back to the store.

Do not recommend at all. Pelican brand is not worth the time or effort.

1.0 out of 5 stars A great deal of problems not worth the price February 10, 2011
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Honestly, depending on your situation, this wireless adapter can be more grief than anything. if your set up is of a specific type that is friendly to this product,you are good to go but most set ups are not.

1. Each time I want to use my xbox, I have to reboot the pelican,and conduct an xbox live test,it is the ONLY way I can connect.

2. Unless it is 5 feet from your router, connection is bad and your bandwidth will change constantly.

3. You will lag and get booted from online games at random.

4. In order to get it to work with my computer, and brand new net gear router that is meant specifically for gaming applications, I had to perform a 28 step installation process literally, no aggageration whatsoever,and it took several hours to get it to work properly.

You get what you pay for,either get the xbox approved and made product, or take the time to run the wire...the hardwire is a bit more physical work,but once it is done,it is done forever with a faster non failling connection everytime.

Do not buy this,you have been warned.
