Ease of Use

If you're looking to get your DirecTV receiver connected to the internet, this device will work just fine. It's the same device that they will send you in the DirecTV wireless kit, but it's cheaper to buy online. Setup was simple even though my wireless network is different than the default I had this set up in less than 5 minutes, I was connecting to a Linksys WRT54G router.

Also a Wireless-to-Wired Connection!

on 3/17/2008

Actually I bought this as a wireless connection to link an HD DVR with an RJ-45 jack to a home network as opposed to the "game" orientation in the name. Overall I am pleased with the performance and I can access music, videos and pictures on my network from the HD DVR -- kind-of slick! The set-up was a bit tricky. I use a Linksys wireless router but have changed the default IP address, thus requiring a change in the IP address on the game adapter - however it appears to require both the configuring machine and adapter to be on the same subnet so you lose connection during default set-up. No worries - just reset your computer's IP and you can access the game adapter setup via http. Once that wrinkle was done and security configured it works fine.

Works flawlessly with XBOX 360

by Chris Hagler on 5/12/2008

This products works as advertised. Followed the SIMPLE instructions by hooking it up to my PC first - bascially let is self configure, then attached it to my XBOX 360. I am now connected Wireless N from my XBOX 360 to my Wireless N router. Works 100% as advertised. Highly recommended.
