Two hundred dollars -- are you freaking joking!

 
5.0
Verdict: I love this device, when it was priced accordingly. It use to be sold as a VERY cheap device to bring legacy (non-WiFi devices) onto WiFi networks -- yes, children, once upon a time we had no WiFi.

5.0
Verdict: The practical stuff! Found it by chance when the experts having a sale and took the opportunity for 360. It converts any device with a network port (RJ-45) to a wireless device! Uses it to my media player (Western Digital HD TV Live) and it works just fine.

5.0
Verdict: I had one of these before but was refurbished and did not have the netgear GUI after several attempts to get into the adapter to set up new settings after router change I could not remember how to do it and it would not connect like the netgear instruction pointed to.

1.0
Pros: None
Cons: This product is evidently the same as TRENDnet TEW-654TR N300 Wireless Travel Router Kit IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n with two of the functions blocked
Verdict: There is a switch on the bottom which has been blocked and the Netgear unit is set to client mode only.

Great little thing!

NETGEAR WNCE2001-100PES Universal Wireless-N to Ethernet Internet Adapter

 
5.0
Pros: Easy to set up. Connects Bravia TV to wifi cheaper than Sony proprietary wifi adapter
Cons: European power plug not very useful in UK
Verdict: This is my second WNCE2001. Good little device. I guess 100PES subcode maybe indicates a European power plug (?) but that isn't clear in the product description. Not a huge problem as it can take power from the USB instead of the mains, if you happen to have a spare USB socket.

Needn't have worried ...

 
5.0
Verdict: Was concerned about ordering this, in case of set up problems - but needen't have worried, it worked straight out of the box. I was looking for a cheaper and more flexible alternative to £60 Sky wifi adapter, and found all the info I needed on these review pages to put my mind at ease.

Nice addition for older DirecTV box

 
5.0
Verdict: Works out of box, and has an adapter that allows it to power up from the satellite box. Streams without a hitch from internet at 1080p. Only caveat is to hook it first to a computer in the LAN you're using, to get it recognize the WLAN. Takes a few minutes, and you're surfing the net on your TV.

Verdict: Basics: Delivery was fast and setup was easy. It really doesn't get any better! A few minutes connected to my computer to acquire the WEP key and establish settings for the device, a quick dash to the living room to connect the tiny box to the Bluray DVD player, and presto!

Handy device

 
5.0
Pros: Easy set up, works so far, small
Cons: Needs additional power, (not a show stopper). May be hard to hide due to wires (comes with short ethernet cable
Verdict: Works as stated, can connect any device to the internet with an ethernet port. Easy set up on web page. Saves money by not having to use proprietary wireless usb sticks now needed on new HDTV's and Blu-ray players.
