- 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.by Darrin013112/26/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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.by getrealdude3/21/2011Was this answer helpful?

- 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!by rosepiano1/31/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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.

- It works with my Dishnetwork 722k dvr.by bgandpg12/7/2014Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- IF that DVR has a regular LAN (RJ-45) connector, then yes, this would let your DVR connect, wirelessly, to your existing wireless router, then out to the Internet. Folks, this is JUST LIKE A NETWORK PLUG IN THE WALL AT WORK, WHERE YOUR COMPUTER CONNECTS TO THE NETWORK. That's the beauty of this thing; it doesn't CARE what type of device connects to it, as long as you set it up to talk to some existing wireless Internet connection, and you have a LAN port on your device, plug it in and, you will now have your NON-Wireless device connected to the Internet through your existing wireless router.by getrealdude9/23/2011Was this answer helpful?

- The best answer I can give you is that my setup has the router in the far corner of a 12x12 office and it connects diagonally across the room, through a brick wall, across another 22x22 room and to my BluRay player inside a wooden entertainment center.by Darrin0131111/23/2014Was this answer helpful?

- My router & my adapter are about 80 feet apart & seperated by 3 rooms & a hallway, & I have a strong signal, no problems.by jadapat12/18/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Pure, open-air range is reported to be as high as 1,000 ft, which is typical for Wireless N, but indoor range seems to be around 300 ft through mutliple walls at an angle of about 15 degrees or so (source to target). Range can be as little as 80 ft, depending on type of construction, number of walls and angle of source vs. target (i.e., upstairs TV, downstairs router - mine sits at about 15 degree angle, with about 150ft range.by getrealdude2/21/2015Was this answer helpful?
