I have a Linksys wifi router with security enabled. I connected the Netgear WIFI adapter to the R-45 jack on back for my LG DVD player. I pushed the WPS button on back of Netgear adapter, and was unable to connect to the internet. Does anyone know if the procedures to interface the Netgear Wifi adapter to a Linksys Router with security enabled?

  • A. If you read the manual you will see that you need to do the following with an encrypted setup (I had to do the same): 1. Attach it to you PC's Ethernet port (or Mac). 2. Use your web browser to go to the device's setup page. 3. Enter your encryption code. 4. Wait for it to connect to your wireless router. 5. Pull up a random web page to check that it works. 6. Disconnect it from your PC and then attach it to whatever other device you fancy. Note: If you cange your encryption code in the future then you'll need to repeat these steps.

  • A. Yes it is; and you can use the WPS push-button on both devices, so they exchange the encryption info (software or hard button) and that let's them synch up seamelessly. You have to do the WPS pushbutton on the Linksys also. If it doesn't have one, you have to just setup this device manually and plug in the security key.

  • A. I have a Belkin router so you have to connect the adapter to your PC or laptop and disable your internet connection for that PC or laptop. The Netgear website will automatically appear and configure for you. You have to enter your network password in order to allow the adapter to join your network. After you're done, reconnect your PC or laptop to your network connection and connect the adapter to your LG player (I have an LG Blu-ray player). It works great and was able to download a Netflix movie in minutes. Good luck!

  • A. The WPS button will only work on the adapter if the router also has the WPS technology. Otherwise you have to connect the adapter to your computer and set it up for the network security manually before using it. You can learn how from the User Manual here: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16781/session/L2F2LzEvc2lkL0t6VDlMbGtr

When I received a blu-ray disk player for my birthday I was happy to learn that I could watch an unlimited number of movies from Netflix, which I subscribe to, with no increase in rates. Not being very computer literate, I went to a nearby electronics store to find out how to do this. They told me I needed a "bridge" of some sort, to receive the signal from my computer. Three rooms & a hallway seperate my computer from my High-Def. TV & Blu-Ray player. They said a WII or Play Station would work. I have neither of these & no desire to purchase one. When I saw this unit in a Walmart ad it was the answer to my problem & very reasonably priced. Installation was so easy even a senior citizen like myself could do it. I have Wi-Fi using a high speed cable modem & NetGear router & they connected with the push of a button on each unit. Movies run flawsly & having the computer turned on is not necessary. I absolutely love this product.

In general I got this to work so I would recommend this, but there are some issues. First, the automatic "push-button" linking did not work after trying multiple times. Second, when setting up this device to link to my home network manually, this device only allows for a ten character password, but my network has a 16 character password. I called Netgear's customer service and was told that the only thing to do was to change the password on my network - and that would mean changing the log-in for all the devices on my network (not going to happen). I have over ten wireless devices hooked up to my network and all of them had no problem with the 16 character password until this device. Why would any maker limit the space for a password. I do have a slower wireless router with a shorter password that I connected to, but disappointed that something so simple as the length of the password would limit which network I could use. A very unnecessary constraint.

For anyone with the need to convert wired ethernet to WiFi, you can't go wrong with this neat little package. I needed to connect my DVR to my home network. Wiring was out of the question due to distance. Luckily I have WiFi, but my DVR only has wired ethernet. Enter the Netgear WiFi adapter. It was very simple to set up as compared to others I have used in the past. Within 5 minutes of opening the package it was installed and working. I also didn't have a power outlet available, but there is a feature on this little device that works flawlessly. It can be powered by an available USB port on my DVR. If you have the need for conversion to wireless, this device is hard to beat, and the price is below other devices in it's category that have less features.

Pros: Very easy setup, works as advertised, can be used to convert many various cat5/6 wired network devices to Wireless-N. I use it on my Samsung Bluray player with Netflix and Pandora and it works GREAT! Has no trouble picking up through the wall between my entertainment center and my office where the wireless-N router is located. Cons: I thought it was a little pricey, but am still glad I bought it.

it has exceeded what I was hoping for. I was not sure if I could even set it up but it was so easy to do that even those that are not what we call computer savvy can do this.
