I used linksys for 802.11b and switched to Netgear for 802.11g and am very satisfied. It was plug-and-play after software installation and the unit looks great. Didn't have to make a single adjustment. Netgear will be my choice for home networking for the forseeable future.

I used the NETGEAR WG602 with a D-Link wireless card, it works great. I installed the access point on the 2nd floor of my house and had full 54 mbs transfer rate on most of the first floor in my house. This was the cheapest 802.11g access point I found on the website. Setup was easy. As soon as I plugged it in, it worked. I then tweaked with the settings afterwords. I am 100% satisified.

Simple to install - Great performance

by Larry on 12/1/2007

My home network is set up using a 10/100 network switch and my broadband satellite modem (Hughesnet HN7000S) controls DHCP (which can't be turned off in the modem). A wireless router was therefore not the answer for me. I simply connected the Netgear WG602 Wireless Access Point to a free port on my network switch and didn't have to change a single setting. 5 out of 5 reception all over downstairs in my home and 3 out of 5 in the most remote point upstairs. Excellent internet connection speed. If you are simply wanting to add wireless access to an existing network, this is the product for you. Read More

Repeater requires WDS at the other end

by Andrew C. on 3/2/2008

Some wireless repeaters / range extenders are more "universal". That is they just need the SSID, channel, and security settings and will rebroadcast to the original AP or router. This is not one of those. You need to enter the MAC address of the router/AP and then enable that on the router/AP. This is more of a WDS peer to peer bridge with wireless client access type of connection vs. a basic repeater. Because of this I couldn't use it as a repeater with my 2Wire gateway/router. This should have been more clear in the specs. Their newer AP's say that they are WDS repeaters, not universal. This one didn't. I got a Linksys range expander to replace and it does it the job fine.
