5-0 out of 5 stars Linux ?
Since it can only read NTFS and not write to it, I am assuming that the router runs some version of Linux kernel in its Firmware.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Unstable
I bought this with the hope that i could store all my pictures and music in one central place on the network. But my drive is NTFS, which this device only supports read only access, so i couldn't add any new files through the network. I was willing to live with that with the hope that at some point a firmware revision would solve that problem.

I had to return it because it wouldn't keep a wireless connection to any of my devices for a consistant period of time. Some of these devices had compatible Netgear SuperG cards and some didn't. I was absolutely maddening to watch the little pop up box in the system tray lose, then find, then lose my connection.

Maybe if I was new to this stuff this might not have bothered me so much, but I replaced an old Linksys 802.11b wireless router that had just worked for years without so much as a hiccup. I am very disappointed in this product and wouldn't recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Your Previous Reviews Helped
Reading the previous reviews really helped educate me on internet protection. First of all, I think this is a great product. I havent had a single failure or problem yet, and I'm doing every test I can to try to get it to hiccup. Based on the previous reviews, I scanned my ports to see if there were any open. And the default was to have port 21 open and 113 closed but viewable. It also returns a ping which isn't totally internet stealthy. But after going thru proper set-up, and actually READING, I learned to change the default to stealth all my ports and turned my ping return off. Now I am totally secure and have an awesome fast wireless machine. And on a computer knowledge level. 10 being Super Computer Geek, 0 being No knowledge, I would rate myself a 6.5, just a tad above average. Anyone that takes the time to read this and research products is smart enough to set this up.

1-0 out of 5 stars waste of time
Just didn't work in my network. Kept dropping the DSL internet connection. My network: Yahoo SBC DSL, SlipStreem DSL modem, one wired PC, and one wireless laptop. Every 30 minutes or so the internet connection would drop. And the laptop would hardly ever pick up a signal. I bought the equivalent Linksys (minus the USB port) and everything worked fine.

1-0 out of 5 stars Good features but would consistently drop PPPoE connection
I bought this router to replace my D-Link DI-614+ for 802.11g support AND USB drive support (my main reason for the upgrade). However, there's a bug in their firmware that cause my SBC Yahoo DSL connection to drop after several hours of use/non-use and it wouldn't reconnect until I manually reconnect or reboot the router. My D-Link router works reliably and would reconnect if the connection is dropped. I have tried all firmware versions including the latest beta v1.3.0.0 with different MTU settings but no luck. Other modes (DHCP, static IP) seem to work fine. I have e-mailed Netgear tech support but they are not very helpful - they sent me the latest beta firmware version which I have already tried! I would stay away from this product unless you really want the integrated USB drive support and can deal with PPPoE disconnects. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Read the fine print
I purchased this for two reasons: one, to bridge an ethernet desktop to an 11b network for now; and two, to use as an 11g AP later. Unfortunately, although the product description clearly states it can be used as an access point, bridge, or repeater, I couldn't configure it as anything other than an AP. The user manual shows "advanced" configuration screens that I simply couldn't find at all. I also couldn't get my changes to the wireless settings to "stick" (they'd go back to the defaults no matter how many times I clicked Apply).

It would behoove you to read the user manual before purchasing this product because its compatibility is limited: it can only act as a bridge or repeater in conjunction with another WG602v2 or a WG302 (and you still can't do WPA). Also, the product ships with a bright yellow note saying it's incompatible with the MA101.

I've used several other Netgear products. If you're looking for something attractive, simple, and built well, Netgear's great. But if you actually know a thing or two about wireless networking you might be disappointed in Netgear due to limited configurability, expandability, compatibility, interoperability, and performance.

5-0 out of 5 stars Why did I wait so long to go wireless ....
I just got this a week ago along with a Netgear WG511 PC Card. It looks really neat. And works great. The setup was a breeze. I just connected the access point to an ethernet switch connected to the router. Installed the PC card and it immediately detected the WLAN. Configuring the access point took a little while because my network's IP range is from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.255. The access point comes with a preset IP address of 192.168.0.227. To access the AP from a PC that is connected to my network over ethernet, I had to change the IP address of that PC to start with 192.168.0. The PC card shows the signal strength as "EXCELLENT", "VERY GOOD", "GOOD", "LOW", "VERY LOW" etc. I did some benchmarking on this. In the same room, the signal strength is shown as "EXCELLENT". I copied 25MB of files from the other PC to my notebook. It took 1 min 7 seconds. Over an ethernet connection between the same two computers, it took only 53 seconds. Then I took the notebook to another room (2 walls) and the signal strength was shown as "VERY GOOD". With 3 walls in between it was still "VERY GOOD". Interesting thing is that I didn't see any noticeable delay in copying the same 25MB files. I took the notebook to upto about 180ft (2 walls in between). The signal strength became "VERY LOW" and it also got disconnected after a while. With more than 2 walls in between, irrespective of the distance, it becomes very unreliable. I keep my access point in the basement in a corner room. I cannot get signal on my ground floor at the opposite corner of the house. I think it is safe to assume that we should get upto 200 ft with no walls in between.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
Just got this today and had it up and running in 15 minutes.

I get 100% signal strength throughout my entire condo and the lowest throughput I've seen is 36 MBPS on rare occasions. Usually is 48+

Extremely pleased. I've been using Netgear products for the past 7 years and they have all been great.

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor SMA Connections
As a company we have now purchased 2 of the Netgear WG602 access points and are generally very happy with the overall performace and ease of configuration of this product, we currently have a wifi network spanning just over a mile with the use of external antenna's, however, a word of warning to any consumers that are planning to purchase this product with a view to using it with an external antenna.
The SMA connection an the rear of the access point is rather dificult to atatch a coaxial connection to due to the overhang of the rear of the case, once the connection was made, we were very suprised to find that the weight of the coaxial cable had quite easily pulled the pressed brass insert from the SMA connection completly out of the access point, personally i feel that this is quite a poor design and would have expected the brass insert to be threaded to avoid this problem.
But, these really are the only faults we found with this access point and are generally very happy with the performance..

1-0 out of 5 stars Flakey
OK, I guess for some people, this works, but for me it simply doesn't. I have a sizable home network (10 wireless clients, file server etc.), and have now tried twice to replace my trusty Netgear ME 102 (802.11b) WAP with the WG602 (both the original and "v2" version - what ever "v2" means - yes it is actually printed on the machine as a "WG602v2"!!!). I use 128 bit WEP, and have a bridge (WGE101) between two wired lans.

Both times, the WG602 has failed. Of my wireless clients, the following refuse to keep a connection with the WG602
- Soundblaster Wireless
- Netgear WGE101 (Yes, their own product, same vintage, same series)
- Netgear WG511 (Again their own product and series)

I have spent at lease 20 hours so far on the phone with Netgear's support, changing firmware versions on pretty much everything I have on the network, and nothing fixes it.

I am glad this product works for some people, it really doesn't for me. I used to have an all Linksys network, and moved to Netgear because of similar issues with Linksys 4 years ago. I guess I will be moving back to Linksys once more, at least for the wireless portion. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Low Cost, Works Well
I wanted to upgrade my home network from a 10M/sec hub built into my router to a 100M/sec switch. I probably could have gotten by with an 8 port product, but I've wired up a few outlets to a patch panel and didn't want to have to walk to the basement and patch around as I moved around the house. This 16 port version seemed like a good way to go.

The product is very different styling than other Netgear products I have (not that I cared). It is small, not a much larger profile than the plugs themselves need, and the case is very sturdy and solid. With no fans, it makes no noise. My only negative comment is I would have preferred a standard 19 inch width for rack mounting, but others will prefer this more condense case. Fits on a shelf easy, or you could mount it to the wall with screws on the underside.

And the end result -- much faster home network! This would be a good solution for anyone with a larger home or small office wired network, or someone who hosts LAN parties. 16 ports will connect a lot of people!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic network switch
I had been looking at the FS116 for some time, hoping for the prices to come down. Recently, I was able to get one at a good price from Amazon so I jumped on it.

This switch, unlike many of the Linksys products, is made of *metal*. It is VERY solidly built and quite small - not much taller than the network jacks themselves. It does not have any fans and runs only slightly warm to the touch.

... EVERY port on this device is now uplink capable, not just one port "with a button" as the heading indicates. For me, this was a pleasant surprise as I have several ethernet cables that are designed for uplinking and with this switch, I can use them whenever I need to due to the auto-detection on all 16 ports.

I really like that the LEDs and cables come-out of the front. The trend in consumer level devices is to put the cables on the rear. This does not work for me as I have my "network center" in the basement and all of the cables approach from the front (note, front-connect is how professional-level equipment is built and the fact that the Netgear uses that also harkens to their power-user-level equipment).

Anyway, I have been using this switch transparently for a couple of months now. It functions just as a switch should: without a thought. It just works.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to install, consistent connectivity
I received this wireless card as a gift with the Linksys wireless access point. This card was VERY easy to install in my IBM T21 laptop running Windows 2000. The Linksys wireless access point works great, but there have been a number of reviews on the difficulty configuring the Linksys card--we ran into similar problems after purchasing a Linksys Card for a second laptop in the house). After doing my own product comparison, I would highly recommend the NetGear wireless card over the Linksys card. For range of signal and ease of setup, the NetGear card is far superior. With the NetGear Card connectivity rarely drops, and I had no need to download additional drivers to install the card. When placed equidistant from the Linksys wireless access point, we'd see an Excellent Link Quality on the Netgear card Configuration utility, but on the similar utility on the Linksys card, we would see either poor or NO signal. This Netgear card is a fine product, I'm definitely enjoying the freedom of no wires while surfing the web.

4-0 out of 5 stars Flat antenna - an advantage over the other wireless cards
I have a small network of laptops connected wirelessly with a Lucent Orinoco RG-1000 access point, and I buy workstation cards by price. I've used (or currently using) Lucent, 3Com, Microsoft, Linksys, and Netgear cards, and they all work find with similar range and speed (in my environment).

I decided to keep this card because it has an advantage over the other cards - its flat antenna. With the other cards, the bulging antennas are taller than the thickness of the cards, forcing you to use it at the TOP PC Card slot. This means you'll *NOT* be able to use a (necessarily) tall PCMCIA card such as an USB 2.0 adapter. With the Netgear, I can put the wireless card at the bottom slot, and the USB card can occupy the top slot. Perfecto!

The card works with XP Pro and my Lucent RG-1000 without any problem and was up and running in 5 minutes. I guess the only complain I have is that the system tray icon is kinda ugly and amaturish! :)

Update: After using it for a few weeks, I'm still very satisified with it. It keeps up at 11mbps at locations where my other Lucent cards drops to 6mbps (per XP system tray icon). I did notice that it does not have an Activity light (only a Link light), so you can't see externally that your card is transmitting data, which can be useful at times.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing
Wow. That was all I could say when I got this card and the MR314 router home and connected. I have to admit that I haven't used any other wireless networking products, so I cannot compare NetGear's products with any others. But I did do a good deal of research when deciding which company to use. At first I was only considering the Linksys and D-Link products, and had a tough time deciding which to try. Last week, Best Buy was offering a rebate on the NetGear products, so I thought that I would research them, too. I am SO glad that I did! I found very few (if any) disparaging remarks in regards to these products, and now, after using them myself, I know why.

Once I had the products home, I plugged the card into my wife's notebook (running Windows 98), inserted the installation disk into her CD-ROM, and 3 minutes later it was completed. Then, I plugged the router (MR314) into the outlet in my office and ran the ethernet line from the router to a NIC card in my PC in there. The LED lights for power and the local PC instantly lit up, but the wireless one did not. So, I walked back into the room with the laptop to check the status light on the card to see if it was lit. By the time I got back to the laptop, the light on the wireless card was lit up. So I walked back into the office, and the wireless light was not lit. It synched up that fast. I was amazed.

I then used the Windows XP built-in functionality on my PC to setup the network. This was also very simple, thanks to XP. I finished this, shared the folders/files/whatever I wanted to on my PC, did the same on my wife's laptop, and I was finished.

The entire process took approximately 15 minutes. And there was no issue whatsoever using Windows XP. I had read some reviews for both the Linksys and D-Link products, and some people had issues with XP, which was another reason I tried the NetGear products.

A few days later my cable company (Insight) came out to install my internet service, and I plugged my Motorola SB4100 modem into the router, and again had no issues (besides my own inexperience). I had everything running through the router in about 20 minutes. Again, very simple.

I would definitely suggest this product if you are considering a wireless network. This card will also work with any 802.11b network, so you don't HAVE to purchase the NetGear router with this card; but I would suggest you did.

2-0 out of 5 stars Just stopped working
After using this with the MR814 router for over a year, my computer no longer recognizes this product as a wireless adapter. When it's plugged in, it's identified as the MA_(four box symbols), and won't recognize the drivers that are installed because of this bogus product name. The last time this happened, tech support, which was previously very helpful with set up (terrible, incomplete instructions included in the box), had me try to ping my router a few times and then said they couldn't help anymore. Since this problem has happened multiple times, I have fixed it by uninstalling the bogus name from the device manager list and then plugging the card back in, which usually worked. Once I had to do a system restore--I'd like to not resort to that again.

This may be a problem with the "hibernate" as in some previous reviews (my computer has hibernate issues anyway), but this latest problem occurred after a full shut down. When it works, I was pretty happy with it (wireless is amazing), but I've had regular enough headaches that I can't recommend it, at least not with my low-end Dell laptop.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy, never fails
I have 2 wireless cards, one being this one. It works better, never fails me, and gets better reception than my other one. It was easy to install. It, as does any wireless card, does stick out from the computer, but it's very sturdy and I've never had a problem during my daily travels with the computer. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars No Brainer Installation
I read the other reviews here with some dismay before I bought this unit. I decided to go ahead with the purchase because I had spent a lot of time researching router/switch combos with print server capability and true SPI firewall capability. There are not a lot of reasonably priced options out there. In summary this unit has performed like a dream. I had two PC's, a NIC laserprinter, and a parallel port printer (via print server) all plugged in, configured with my DSL service, and all up and running in less than 30 minutes. Please note that BEFORE I purchased this unit I made 3 separate "pre-sales" calls to Netgear tech support and received what I considered to be good information in each instance (I even placed a call at 3am one morning to check if they really were 24/7). Read the installation guide from cover to cover BEFORE you actually DO anything and you will probably find (as I did) that this is a no-brainer deal.

3-0 out of 5 stars Firewall/Router work fine - Print Server a project
The router & firewall functionality of the FR114P are fine. Print server took hours of effort with varying error messages but no printing.

Netgear offered to send me a new box for $15. Charge even though I am well within the warrantee period. New box seems to be working fine, but it has only been a few days.

This box has a documented issues with HP printers. They are (now) clearly addressed on the Netgear web site. Be sure to look there before you try to use this with an HP printer. It will not work if you follow the instructions in the manual.

As for the other features, I followed the instruction manual to the letter. On line with 3 computers in no time. Networking between the computers worked out of the box. But no printing.

E-mailed back and forth with Netgear tech support. Reasonably prompt replies, but nothing more that pointing me to the same material I had already reviewed on their web site.

Called tech support. Typical 30 minutes on hold. Tech rep was very professional, but unable to get the printer printing after about 45 minutes of trying. Then offered the replacement box.

1-0 out of 5 stars worked OK for maybe 18 months then "pop" and smells bad
Never could hook up the printer, but it worked OK for a while until it started making erratic connection with the cable modem. Then "POP", a bad smell, and I'm out $100!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good featureset, but reliability and performance concerns.
I've owned two of these routers now -- my first one died after about a year and I replaced it with the same model because I was fairly happy with it and it worked.

Configuration is easy and yet powerful. Pretty much all of the features I could want come built-in and work (make sure you get the latest firmware from the netgear site!)

In general the router has Just Worked for me -- I configured it, and left it alone. My DSL is up 24/7 and fairly heavily used, and I never ever have to touch the router.

On the other hand, I'm about to replace this router with the BEFSX41 -- my DSL line speed has recently been upped to 3mbits, and I'm now finding that the netgear box is the bottleneck on my network. Do a little bit of googling and you'll be able to find some comparative throughput tests (this router was by far the slowest)

5-0 out of 5 stars Rock Solid, Quality.
Excellent product. Perfect for the home or small office. I've been using this router for over a year and it works perfectly. I've recommended this product to several clients and none have reported the hardware failures that others have posted about. The print server is a very nice bonus. I have six computers behind my router and the performace is outstanding. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect solution to network your USB printer!
Works great right out of the box. It can be set up in minutes by following the simple instructions. I wanted to get my HP PSC 2200 printer on my wireless network using Netgear's WGR614 router. The printer's USB cable goes in one end of the Netgear PS121 print server, Ethernet cable comes out the other end and into the router. Now I can print wirelessly using my IBM laptop and Netgear's WG511 wireless card. A fraction of the cost of wireless print servers. If you want to network your USB printer, this product's for you! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So much better than SMC
I have been using an SMC wireless card for some time now (with XP Pro) and couldn't figure out why the signal was being dropped every 5 or 10 minutes. Incredibly aggrevating! My dad also had an SMC card and XP Pro with his laptop and was having similar problems. It wasn't until I read reviews on Amazon when I was looking for a new card that I realized it wasn't the router or the age of my card (dad had newer), but the compatibility of SMC with XP Pro. I ordered two of the Netgear MA521s for both of us and neither has had any problems since. It takes slightly longer on boot up for the card to recognize that the network is there, but after that, never drops the signal. It has good range, I've been everywhere in our two-story, four-bedroom house and have not had a problem anywhere. I would highly recommend this card, especially to anyone running XP Pro.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this card! !!
I bought this card after having lots of problems with a linksys card. I have a dell laptop and I'm running Windows XP Home. The linksys card had poor signal strength and repeatedly dropped signals, even if seated next to the router. This netgear card is phenomenal. The signal hasn't been dropped yet and I have a signal throughout my house (4000 sq. ft.) and outside! Avoid the linksys card and buy netgear! I can't say enough good things about this card. I love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Wireless Netgear MA521
At first it will now work on my Compaq Armada 100s 550MHZ AMD K6 (June 2000) 16bit card bus with Win98 (not SE) giving out " NDIS.VXD NTKERN.VXD device loader for this device could not load the device drive {code 2)" error and exclamation mark under device driver. I suspect it to be either the previous PCMCIA LAN Card I used and interfering with this new wireless hardware or the anti-virus program. I have no time to find out. So I reload my laptop with a clean install of Win98SE (SE this time). This time it works and no more code 2 errors. It averages 85% signal strength and 85% link quality thru walls and close doors.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good card but not as good as MA401
I found the MA521 at Staples for $39 with a $20 mail in rebate. I already own an MA401 which I use in my other laptop. I didn't realize these two cards differed until the installation completed and I recognized a difference in the appearence of the config util. I had hoped the 521 would outperform the 401 (not that the 401 is a slouch). The install went very smooth for the 521 as opposed to some minor problems I experienced with the 401. However, my laptop was setting on my desk barely 24 inches from the router and the signal strength of the 521 was in the 82% range with link quality about 10% higher. I was amazed yet totally disappointed! How could ANY wireless device not achieve 100% signal and link when so close to the access point?!? Two rooms away is my other laptop with it's 401. A quick check showed 100% for signal strength and link quality! There must be a big difference in the internals of the 521 and the 401. While the 521 is a nice card for a nice price after rebate, I prefer to have a better performing card and will be exchanging the 521 for a 401 (IF I can find a 401!). If your wireless needs are such that the very best in signal and link is not required, then the 521 would be a nice card to own. It's a great card, just not as good as the 401.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Technical Support
My Netwiking Card all of sudden stopped functioning afer 4 months in use. Reading the literature on web I was able to do basic debugging and found that Networking card is not able to pickup the signal and when could not resolve the issue I called there Tech Support who were not willing to help at all unless I agree to pay them 28$ service fee or agree 2$/minute charge of the call. Guys have you heard of this. My experience with Netgear is not good and would suggest you not waste your quality time and money on poor quality products from NetGear!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Worked Without A Hitch
Setting up the Netgear router to share our DSL line was terribly easy. The directions are clear and set-up is quick and simple. It includes a CAT5 cable and a little vertical mount which makes the router look very slick. You don't have to install any software or drivers; there is just a simple test procedure which takes a couple of minutes. The Netgear physically behaves like a server, and it has some solid security features. Also, installing the router actually solved problems that we originally had with the DSL modem, and it has behaved itself nicely since we set up the network. Accessing the router's features is simple- you log onto the Netgear by typing "192.168.0.1" in your browser window. Configuration is simple and straightforward. The RP614NA is a fine product and reasonably priced.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Low Priced Router, Easy setup
I picked this router up after doing some research on customer reviews on different brands/models. I was deciding between this RP614NA and the FR114P (also Netgear). I finally decided on this one after it ended up in my Amazon gold box with an additional discount. The router setup took about 20 minutes for 2 PC's sharing AT&T Broadband Cable. (One XP and one Win 98SE). Another 10 min and I had the network up and going (file/printer sharing). Probably would have went even quicker if I had more networking experience. As far as speed, I haven't noticed any drop by adding the router. The bandwidth test on CNet comes up about the same depending on the amount of traffic. I have not used the port forwarding or content filtering features, yet, so I can't comment on that. The only thing I wish it had is the DoS and SPI security features of the FR114P. However for half the price, I can't really complain. If you are looking for an inexpensive router with basic features and easy setup, I would definitely recommend the RP614 based on my experience. If you want the additional security features and internal print server, you might check out the FR114P.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst router ever
I dislike netgear for several problems:

1. It doesn't allow me to access yahoo or hotmail for weird reason.

2. Bad customer service.
3. Hard to configure.

3-0 out of 5 stars Netgear does not stand behind thier products.
I bought this router in Oct. 2003,I've had it for 7 months and was very happy with the performance, the durability is another thing altogether. I tried to unplug the router to reset it and the adapter was literally stuck in the female socket so I pulled on it rather hard to get it out and it finally let loose. When I plugged it back in I had no power until I pushed the plug very hard back into the female socket and then if I bumped it I had no power again. Obviously a faulty part but when I called support I was informed that it was my fault that it was not working correctly, I should have taken it back to my hardware vendor and had them pull the plug out so therefore I cannot return it as faulty. I told the woman that I was very dissapointed and would never buy another Netgear product again and she told me that "That is your choice sir, have a good day." I have never been treated like this by a reputable company before in my life. Be very careful when buying this or any other Netgear product. TERRIBLE SUPPORT AND CUSTOMER RELATIONS! Don't belive me? You will when you try to resolve a problem with this router...fair warning.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it!!!! SO EASY!
I purchases a Linksys router, because I happen to have 5 laptops and two PCs. I got tired of switching cords. Well, it works like a charm, thought it was a pain to install and set up. EXCEPT, I could not download updates from Microsoft, I could not use Outlook Express with any hotmail accounts, I could not post messages in MSN groups. Well I do these things dozens of times a day. They help people responded with all sorts of stuff to do, but it NEVER WORKED. I needed to access those things, so after a period I GAVE UP.

I ordered Netgear and WOW. In a matter of 5 minutes I had all all my computers on line at once, they accessed Microsoft update, they used Outlook no probs, and I was able to post in MSN. So real installation to speak of, not settings ISPs, nothing. Plugged it in and go...

Boy, this is the way it SHOULD BE. I recommend Netgear over Linksys anytime! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The diminutive Netgear Pocket Print Server lets you share your printer connection with everyone on your home or office Ethernet computer network via its RJ-45 Ethernet port. With this device, you don't have to leave your PC on to let others use the printer, they can access it from their own computers. The Print Server runs at up to 10 Mbps and supports simultaneous print jobs, and can be managed using a remote, Web-based tool. Its on-board memory buffer gives you a quick printout delivery, and while it works with most laser and inkjet printers equipped with a parallel port, no expensive parallel printer cable is needed.

The Print Server comes with easy to install software for quick installation on your Windows-based PC. Network Link and Printer Alert LED lights let you know the status of your print job, and the Print Server is also upgradeable. The device comes with a 3-year limited warranty. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to install, works great
Since there were no reviews for the NetGear PS101 and reviews for the other vendor's offerings were fairly negative with a lot of pitfalls encountered, I expected to have some problems when I started. However, within an hour of opening the box, I had the print server up and running on 4 PCs, 3 with XP, 1 with Win/98. It works much faster than sharing the printer off a "server" PC, and print quality isn't impacted at all. The documentation is fairly clear and complete, although somewhat misleading where it talks about what port to use due to the use of bold versus normal font. The adiministration screens are OK, could be much better, and I can't figure out how to upgrade the firmware if I ever decide to do so.

Be careful on PCs with the printer already defined as remote to the "server" pc. Windows wants to configure the printer as another remote one and not as a "local" one. Going into the Windows define printer screens directly or first deleting the remote definition resolves this issue.

If you're using a firewall (like Zone Alarm), make sure you allow access or nothing will work.

1-0 out of 5 stars A year of anger and frustration
I have bought this print server for about a year, and it brought me nothing but anger and frustration every time I wanted to print something.

First of all, you could not just send your print out to the server. You had to ping it first to "wake it up." Otherwise, it wouldn't respond to the client.

Then, sometimes even pinging wouldn't work. The server responded to ping but I still couldn't print. The client on my PC kept telling me that there wasn't a server. Rebooting the server or my PC would not always work.

Worse, often when I tried to use their tools, trying to "shack up" something (there weren't sufficient tools in the first place), the tools sometimes crashed and the server port disappeared from my PC. I had no way to get the port back, but to uninstall and install the thing again.

Do not buy it. If you really want it, I am selling it cheap.

2-0 out of 5 stars Mini Pathetic Print Server
Having read the reviews of this product (and seeing little competition) I decided to give the PS101 a try. I have a machine running XP & a Mac with OS X 10.3 so I figured that once the device was setup by the windows machine the Mac would just need the right settings--wrong. The setup on XP was tricky & confusing, but did indeed work. I have a Brother HL-1250 (great printer) that isn't a native OS X printer. I couldn't get the IP Printing settings to take the brother as default. As per another review on this product, Mac printing is possible (theoretically) with the right printer. Be careful with this product...

5-0 out of 5 stars Installed in Mac / PC network in 5 minutes
I have 2 Macs and 2 PCs - this print server installed onto the network flawlessly in under 5 minutes. Great product!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Worked for one week, support worthless.
Two links into Netgear's support page for this thing, you'll find this: "The Print Server Buffer, is only 64K, so large print jobs are nearly always not executed correctly or at all."

For me, this piece of junk worked for one week. I guess it worked because I only tried to print some one and two page documents that week. Then I printed a 30 page pdf document. It stopped printing after 25 pages and has never worked again. I can't count how many hours I've spent on the phone with Netgear support people in India who don't know any more than I do.

According to Clinton Miller's five-star review, I might be able to make this thing work again if I "have access to a web forum or have some understanding of TCP/IP protocol."

Very disappointing product. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product, easy to use.
I've been told that I bought a better wireless card than I needed, but I really don't regret it. This is my first wireless card, so maybe this is true of all of them, but it was a cinch to install and works great. I'm thrilled. And, believe me, if I think it's easy to use, ANYONE can use this thing. Connection speed is as though I was hooked up direct to my cable modem!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good product
The Netgear WAG511 802.11a/b/g wireless card works great in any environment. I also have bought the WGT624v2 108 Mbps Wireless Firewall Router and I can connect with it up to speeds of 108 Mbps.

In summary, a good buy

5-0 out of 5 stars If you are a mobile person, you need it
This card is great if you have a 802.11b router at home and 802.11a or g at work or University.

It is true that it is more expensive than the others, but you get access to three standards instead of 1 or 2.

If you'll always be working in a 802.11g or 802.11a network, buy another card, buy if you need access wherever you go, this is for you. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars NETGEAR MA701 802.11b Wireless Compact Flash card on your Z
I have to say that if you are out there for a compact flash wireless network card and have a Linux PDA such as Sharp Zaurus SL5x00 Personal Mobile Tool, then this card may just be what you are looking for. This battery hungry monster will work right out of the box without any need for additional software or drivers and what not. If all you care about is compatibility this card will eat-u your batteries in about 4 hours(fully charged brand new Sharp Zaurus). It makes me charge my Z every 4 hours or so. I usually charge my Z every couple of days or so. Not when on the network. So. MA701 does not use a Prism2 chipset and eats up the battery on my PDA if it was honey to mad Grisly Bear. My assumption is that this card is designed for a laptop user with more powerful batteries then PDA user is able to have but other then battery life while using this card I am very pleased with its performance and can't say that it's a bad product. So if you got extra batteries and need Linux compatibility on your Z this is the card that will allow you to have your Instant Messaging and all the Internet you can allow yourself to grasp with your mobile, or personal mobile pc.

I use this card on my Audiovox Maestro. It works fine and makes PDA really powerful and having a lot of fun. Potability and mobility, that is really PDA should do. But without internet connection, the functions of PDA are really limited.

Another great thing is it also works on laptops if you buy a PCMCIA to CompactFlash adapter (less than $10 anywhere). Netgear doesn't provide the driver of MA701 under Windows, but you can install MA401's driver for MA701. It works perfectly. If you have both laptop and pda, it will save a lot of money to buy another PC wireless card...

Problem I have met: sometimes it (used on PDA) takes long time (more than 1 min) to get connection while the signal is weak. However no such problem if used on my laptop.

Overall it is a good product and highly recommended.

1-0 out of 5 stars broke and broke again
I bought this card in early November, the first one quit working within a month, Netgear warrantied it, but now 3 and a half months later the new card is having the same problem. I expect it to quit working altogether soon. I know it is the card not my pda because I also have a CF GPS that has never given me a problem. I won't buy Netgear again when I replace this card.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great!
I've been using this card for about a year now and haven't ever had any problems with it. First used it with my Audiovox Maestro and now my Dell Axim. I can go outside, to the garage, or anywhere else in the house and never lose my connection. Great product!

1-0 out of 5 stars Very unreliable
When I first got this card I had a jornada 568 (pocket pc 2002). After a few weeks of it working fine, my pda stopped recognizing it saying "Unrecognized card". I RMAed it and when I got the replacement it worked for just long enough for my warranty to run out and then did the same thing, by this time I had a pocket pc 2003 device (axim). I don't recommend this card to anyone, as 2 bad cards in a row is terribly unreliable. ... Read more
