    Problem Solver

    Customer review by jadapat

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • 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:

    I want to connect my DirecTV DVR (which does not work with USB, only ethernet) to the wireless network so I can watch On Demand movies. It was stated that as long as you use an RJ 45 connection it will work but the only thing I see in the manual is where the phone line is an RJ11. I don't know what that means but maybe you will.
    by an anonymous customer 12/17/2010
    • No, unless your DVR has an RJ-45 LAN conection. RJ-11 is just a "phone jack." RJ-45 is a 'network jack. One (RJ-45) is wider than the other and usually uses more pins in the jack. If your DirectTV DVR has a regular ethernet RJ-45 jack, then yes, this will work. Go look at a network jack at someone's workplace, or look at your cables that go into your cable modem -those are 'wider RJ-45-type cables.' A phone jack (RJ-11) is much more narrow than an RJ-45 network jack. You can google your model of DirectTV DVR and see if it really does have a regular RJ-45 network jack. Sometimes they will have it wrong in the manual - take a regular network cable and see if it will plug in to whatever jack on the DVR - if so, then you have a regular RJ-45 network jack. Sorry, I don't have a DirectTV DVR. ok, just with a quick Google, I found that it does have RJ-45. BUT, according to another person on another forum, you need at least model DVR-20. DVR-16 does NOT have RJ-45.

    • First, I set up the unit by hooking it into my computer per directions, then I hooked the usb into the back of the DVR for power and the ethernet cable to the back of the DVR. The lights on top of the unit were the two on the top left and then after a bit the right hand top light (wireless) had connected to the network. The top left and top right lights stay on. Hope this helps.

    • I have the same set up. Your DVR has 'two' connections on the back. One port is for the 'phone line' (RJ11) to plug in to, and another is a larger Ethernet port (RJ45). Since you don't say how your wireless network is setup, I can't be specific so I'll do the best I can. Most wireless routers also have at least 4 wired Ethernet ports that you can plug a Cat-5 Ethernet cable into and then run it to another network device like a desktop computer network interface card, or a DVR in this case. The Network wireless adapter will plug into the Ethernet port on the back of the DVR and convert the unit to accept the wireless signal from the Router. You might first have to connect the adapter to your pc in order to setup the wireless security for it but then when you plug it into the DVR it should connect to the wireless network without any problems. Just follow any directions that come with the unit, or download the manual from and read up on how to install the unit first to make sure you have all the necessary requirements first. Thanks to, there is a picture of the back of a DirecTv DVR that is pretty typical and you can see the phone line port and the Ethernet port(s). Hope this helps.
