Customer Reviews of NETGEAR WG111 Wireless-G USB 2.0 Adapter
Simple to install and use, good looking piece of equipment
I had this thing for 2 months and got constantly bad signal from it. It would go all the way down to 2mbps. I did not pay for a crappy b signal. I paid for a good g signal. What was wrong you ask. I had the netgear plugged directly into the back of my computer. When I used the provided usb extension cable voila I have had nothing but 54mbps since. Keep this adapter away from your computer otherwise your signal will be extremely terrible.
Beware MAC users6/7/2008
I recently purchased two of these to network my condo and it was my first time networking PCs with MACs. You must purchased v2 instead of v3 in order for your MAC to be able to link up. Lame, but MAC is one step behind the PC software.
Product came on time and had no shipping problems. The product itself is great and works reliably. Very easy to install; very easy to use. The price was fantastic as I shopped around for a long time and Buy.com beat out all the others stores, online or offline. I would definitely recommend this product. I would also recommend buying it from Buy.com
This adapter is easy to setup, speed is good and the price is right. However, after some period of inactivity the adapter loses connectivity to my network, the only way to regain access to network is to restart the computer. Tried on my other computer and had the same issue. Both computers run windows XP.

Another fast & easy review6/8/2007
Took 2 minutes to set-up and get connected to the internet. Used the software that came with it instead of windows software and had no issues.
Cheap and Easy to Use3/1/2007
Just what you need for quick and portable WiFi connections. No need to open the case, or invest in an expensive accessory that you can't reuse if you get a replacement computer.

Once this was setup,it works perfectly
Windows doesn't control it that well, but if you use the included software, it works beautifully. I got mine to talk to my netgear rangemax router at 108Mbps too, so I couldn't ask for more. Excellent nic for wardriving too :) -ken
Simple to install and setup!1/14/2006
The WG111 was simple to install and setup! I have the NetGear WG111 installed on my desktop PC on my second floor and it's connected to my NetGear Wireless Router in my basement...Excellent signal strength and lightning fast speed!
