This is a review for the N600/WNCE3001 product.

First, there seems to be a lot of misunderstanding here as to what this product does. Basically, if you have a device you want to connect to your network that only has a wired Ethernet port, and you can't run a CAT5/6 cable to the device, you can plug this Netgear adapter into that device. The Netgear then communicates to your router via WiFi. That is, in effect, this Netgear device adds WiFi capability to non-WiFi client devices (TVs, and so on).

In my situation, I have a network camera that is not WiFi. There is no way to run the cable to the camera, and therefore I plugged the Ethernet cable from the camera into this Netgear device.

And it works. It's solid. I'm relatively close to the router, so I'm getting a consistent 300MBPS/300MBPS signal on a 5GHz band, at 91% signal strength. I've run it straight for over three weeks without any drop outs.

This device is surprisingly small, although the form factor is a bit weird. A plus is that it powers off a standard USB cable. A USB power adapter is included, but if the device you're plugging it into has a USB port (e.g., a TV), then you can use that as well -- a nice touch, although one I don't use.

Note further that as a general proposition, wireless is never as good as wired. So, for instance, I've seen a review where someone hooked this up to a VoIP phone. Definitely not ideal -- any little blurble into the wireless signal (interference, etc.) will cause a momentary pause/etc. in the conversation. This is generally not a problem with video streaming, since the video is buffered for a couple of seconds. But, realize this device is not your best solution -- the best solution is to run a network cable to the location in question. If you can't do that, though, this is a good alternative.

The only thing this received does well is dropping the connection after 30 seconds. Sometimes it stays connected for a few hours, in a good week maybe a day or two, then all of sudden for no good reason it goes haywire. When that happens chances are even if you reset the device it will drop the connection again for the new few hours. You can't even connect to the web interface when it does that, just goes dead.

I have a home WiFi network configured with different SSIDs for the 2.4- and 5-GHz bands, so I can confirm that this universal WiFi adapter is correctly connected to the 5-GHz band on my dual-band WiFi router. The box actually contains two pieces, which was not immediately obvious from the picture in this listing: a small plastic stand that the device clips into (approximately lower 1-inch of photo), the actual adapter with power and Ethernet ports. A small foam piece with double-sided tape is also provided to secure the device to a surface, along with the power adapter cable assembly and a very thin Ethernet cable (presumably Cat5 or Cat5e) that I opted not to use.

I connected an aftermarket Cat6 cable to the unit and connected it to an 8-port Gigabit network switch after configuring it to connect to my 5-GHz WiFi network via a direct connection to my laptop. It successfully provided speedy access to all of my AV components (AV receiver, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii) connected to the switch. I like that I only have one WiFi entry/exit point to all of my AV devices, which has eliminated network latency and interference observed before when multiple adjacent devices were using the WiFi network concurrently. It also helps that I've moved all of my AV devices to the 5-GHz wireless band, which is less crowded than the 2.4-GHz band in my particular townhome complex.

I opted to not use WiFi Protected Setup (WPS), as it apparently opens up some security concerns on WiFi networks. For the record, my router is configured to encrypt data streams via WPA2+AES. I configured the device to allow my master router to distribute IP Addresses via DHCP. I did not have any trouble getting IP Addresses to any of my devices.

kept dropping signal and would take about a minute or two to regain signal. This was unacceptable for me. I was using it only 15 feet away from my wireless router with direct los and still having issues. I had to return it

Edit: Spoke too soon, became very flaky after less than a month's use.

Great device, using it to bring connectivity to a Yamaha network receiver which has only built in Ethernet.
Was easy to set up. The link seems to be more reliable using the included power adapter rather than drawing power from a USB port. Considerably cheaper than buying an Airport Express. Other devices in my network: Airport Time Capsule, AirPort Extreme, Airport Express.

I just purchased this little WiFi adapter for my home entertainment system. It's hooked up to my Blu-Ray player for now to stream from my network. Installation was easy enough thru WPS. Upgraded the firmware (a must!)and away she went. Good signal strength from my Netgear WNDR4500 Dual Band Router and the streams are strong and constant.

So Far....So Good! It's worth the bucks.

This was a replacement for an LG USB wi-fi adapter on my LG TV. Streaming Netflix would frequently re-buffer and it reached the point of rendering Netflix useless. This adapter works perfectly. Setting it up on my wireless router using WPS was a breeze. The ethernet cable simply connects between the adapter and the RJ45 jack on my TV. The power can be supplied via the USB port on your TV, or with the included AC adaptor. While the USB port can supply the power, I suggest you use the AC adapter. When I used the USB port, the network adapter would be powered off with the TV. Powering up the TV invariably produced an error message on the TV that "network connection was lost". Easy enough to correct with a few clicks, but it was annoying enough to revert to the AC adapter.
