Dynamic LEDs display real-time network connection status. View larger.

Connect any Ethernet-enabled device to your wireless home network with the NETGEAR WNCE2001 Universal WiFi Internet Adapter. The adapter is perfect for home theater devices such as the Xbox 360, PS3, TiVo, Blu-ray player, and more. And thanks to its elegant, compact design, you'll save space and have a lot of flexibility in choosing where to place it.

Wireless Connectivity for Your Ethernet-Enabled Devices

More and more of today's home theater devices are Ethernet enabled, including TiVo, VUDU, Blu-ray players, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Internet TVs, and more. With this NETGEAR adapter, you'll be able to cut the cord and use a wireless connection to network your devices.

Universal Compatibility

With the WNCE2001 Universal WiFi Internet Adapter, you will no longer need to buy individual proprietary WiFi dongles for the TV, Xbox, etc. because WNCE2001 works with all of them. You can simply plug it into the device when you need to and share it among multiple gadgets.

Wireless-N Technology for Fast Performance

The WNCE2001 adapter supports Wireless-N (2.4 GHz 802.11n) technology for outstanding speed and performance, keeping pace with your home theater devices. In addition, it is also backwards compatible with 802.11g and 802.11b networks.

The adapter can also repeat 2.4 GHz WiFi signals from devices made by NETGEAR and other brands, and it features dynamic LEDs that display real-time network connection status.

Push 'N' Connect for Easy Security

Setting up a secure connection couldn't be easier with NETGEAR's Push 'N' Connect technology. Push 'N' Connect using WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) offers true plug-and-play simplicity by requiring you to simply push the Push 'N' Connect button on your router. In addition, the adapter also supports WiFi Protected Access (WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK) and WEP encryption.

Compact, Smart Design Can Use USB for Power

The Universal WiFi Internet Adapter is a compact device that measures just 3.2 x 2.4 x 0.7 inches, giving you flexibility in choosing where to place it. In addition, the adapter can be powered by either the included power adapter or with the USB port. By using the USB port, you can avoid using an additional power outlet, and reduce exposed wires in your home.

The NETGEAR WNCE2001 Universal WiFi Internet Adapter works with Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000, Mac OS, UNIX, or Linux. It is backed by a one-year warranty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat & Easy 3 May 2011
By Gaxxian
Style Name:N300|Verified Purchase
A great little gadget for turning any wired ethernet port into a wireless one.

Setup is easy and accomplished in one of two ways: either by plugging it into a laptop/desktop and accessing the interface through your web browser or by attaching it to your desired device and pressing the little button on the adaper and on your router (assuming it has one - mine didn't and I used the laptop method).

The setup via the laptop was easy and mostly automatic -it even told me that a neighbour was using the same wireless channel as me (which I didn't know) - and as a result I changed the channel and got better speeds!

I have used this device to connect two products to my router: A SONY Bravia TV and also a HUMAX Foxsat Freeview+ box. Both the TV's USB port and that of the satellite box are capable of powering the device (and there's a power adapter in the box that will do the job if you don't have a handy USB port). Both devices worked flawlessly and I can stream full 1080p video from my PC upstairs to the TV through the N-band connection and connect to things like BBC iPLayer that features on both devices.

At the moment, the TV, the Satellite box and the Network adapter are all plugged into a cheap 10/100 switch. This works perfectly and allows all the devices to connect through the adapter - with room for a couple more devices via the spare ports.

It comes with a power adapter, a USB cable, an ethernet cable (1m) and two little velcro strips for attaching the device to a surface.

My only concern when testing it was that it seemed to become quite hot when placed horizontally. The heat disappeared almost entirely when the device was positioned vertically (as in the picture).

By Shelxs
Style Name:N300
I've been wanting to access the internet video facility on my Sony Bravia 'internet ready' TV for a while now, but was put off by the price of the Sony USB wi-fi dongle and also reviews that said it doesn't work well if your router is positioned in a different room from your TV.

I looked at various options and read lots of reviews and forums and finally settled on the Netgear Wifi Internet Adapter. Sony don't let you use any other make of wifi dongle in the TV, but this gizmo works using the ethernet port so gets round that problem. It was simple to set up (plug into pc, key in broadband password, remove and plug into ethernet port in back of tv, update tv using remote). I can now access loads of internet content with no problem, including BBC iplayer, Youtube, Demand 5.

The device is tiny and light and can be powered from the TVs USB port so no need for any trailing cables.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful little gismo 6 Sep 2011
Style Name:N300
I wanted to get Sky Anytime+ using wifi.
This adapter is half the price of the Sky version & it works very well.
I found it very easy to set up & sky connected straight away.
I find if it is on its side it does not get as hot as when on its base.

Small and compact. Powered by supplied USB cable or 3 pin power plug.

Great once got it working!

I got this adapter working on my SONY SVR-HDT1000 Freeview+HD player. Can now watch BBC iPlayer - simply by pressing the RED Button on any BBC SD channels (not HD channels which are not currently supported). However, getting the adapter connected and working was not so easy from my experience. Hopefully the info below will help someone save time in setting up the connection!

First need to configure the WiFI adapter for connection to the router.
1. 'Pair' the adapter to router - meant to be the quickest way
- Press the tiny WPS (WiFI Protected Setup) button on the back of the adapter
- When the WLAN LED lights flicker amber and green, Press the WPS button on your router (the 'antenna/signal bars' symbol)

(This method did not work for me! Ignore instructions to locate adapter closer to router if you know that the wireless signal is strong!!
Otherwise, Netgear's suggestion would be to upgrade to a new router with stronger signal strength!!!)

2. Configure the adapter using your laptop/computer
- Connect adapter to the laptop using supplied ethernet cable and USB cable for power
- Make sure to switch off the laptop's wireless internet connection

- Wait for both the Power and LAN LED lights to come on and turn green
- Open your internet browser - Follow on screen NETGEAR Setup instructions - choosing Region - Language -
- Enter your internet provider's DHCP details - IP - Subnet - Gateway - DSN - Etc
(For Mac under System Preference - Network Connection - Ethernet tab - Click enter details automatically!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great with Sky Anytime+ 20 Sep 2011
Style Name:N300
Purchased for Sky Anytime+. Nearly half the price of the Sky offering, which is £60. Setup is a breeze and takes a couple of minutes at most. Happily takes power from the Sky+ HD box's USB port. It's a very neat little unit, actually a lot smaller than I was expecting. Theres even a small strip of velcro supplied so you can attach the device out of the way.
