It came very quickly and was smaller than I had imagined. I connected it to the TV via the RJ45 and pushed the WPS button on the bottom of the adapter. I then pressed the WPS button on my BT Home Hub Modem/router and switched the TV on. Selected internet and immediately I was accessing BBC iPlayer, Amazon and all the other internet-based video services. So yes, it really was that simple.
Some people have commented on the build quality and I guess it does feel quite light, but it's going to sit behind my TV unseen so quite honestly, if it works, I don't really mind what it looks like as long as it's reliable.
Finally the price. .... It's £26.99 including P&P v Sony's wifi dongle at about £60 - so half the price. Plus, and this is important to me, I can plug the Netgear Wireless Internet Adaptor into a TP Link Ethernet Switch and from here feed both my BT Box and my TV - all from this one unit.
So good is this product that I am buying another one for my parent's Sony TV to replace the Sony wifi dongle. Two problems sorted with this great product.
Over the next 2 months this became more frequent such that it was impossible to watch a film in one go without rebooting it. Finally, after about 3 months, it wouldn't connect at all. I connected it (wired) to my PC and it could see my network, which was very much the strongest signal, but once I tried to connect manually it seemed to be trying but then always said network no longer available.
No other WiFi device in the house had any problems and the router was the same all along. I tried different wireless channels. I re-flashed the firmware (it was supplied with the latest version installed) but had to conclude the device had broken.
Being out of Amazon's return window I contacted the trader, Farrell International, and was told I had to deal with Netgear. In other words no repair or replacement to which I am entitled. I started on online chat with Amazon and got a refund with no hassle.
I give it 2 stars because it worked well initially and was dead easy to set up. So, if you get one that lasts you'll be pleased. But it might be a gamble.
It's exactly this scenario that this device was designed for. Effective acting as a wireless bridge for a single device, it plugs into the Ethernet LAN port of the non-wireless device and enables you to take advantage of your household WiFi on devices that would otherwise have needed long unsightly cables in order to connect.
Setup is relatively simple. Put the device into the network port of an existing PC and open up a browser. The software in the adapter will jump in and instead of your usual homepage, you'll get the setup screen of the adapter. Quite a neat trick. Then it's simply a case of stepping through the configuration to select the right wireless network, provide any network password and save the configuration. And that's pretty much it. Unplug it and take it to the device you want to connect, plug it in, wait a few minutes for it to reconnect to the network and you're away.
The device itself fits in the palm of my hand and is fairly slimline. It hardly weights anything and is even supplier with some self-adhesive velcro strips but they're not really needed. A power socket and a LAN port are all you will find on the back - and it's possible to power the device either from the mains (using the supplied adapter) or via USB if the device you are connecting to has a spare USB port.
After several months of use, I'm increasingly frustrated with these units (I've got two). The problem is down to the fact that the device seems to have a very poor implementation of DHCP. It ignores DHCP reservations, it repeatedly requests new DHCP leases and it often causes IP address conflicts with other devices on the network. All of these problems mean that the device you've connected will occasionally drop off the network. This typically happens after an hour or two (and is likely to be linked with the DHCP lease time). Worse, other devices will, apparently at random, lose internet connectivity because the Netgear adapter has decided to take the IP address that they are using. None of this was a problem before adding these adapters and, since removing them, it's gone away.
On this basis, I can't recommend them to anyone and would suggest looking into the power-line networking instead.
