product will not plug into any of the popular network cards with jack provided or with adapters provided. Manufacturer's customer service has a long hold time and totally unhelpful "customer service" representatives. Could not find usable adapter at any supply house. Returned product. Save yourself the trouble and avoid this product. ... Read more

SMCs 2670 bridge will configure ok if you use an SMC wireless router. Any attempt to use DHCP in any different way fails. Unfortunately, my attempt at using this with my ReplayTV with ethernet jack failed miserably. Get a D-Link or Linksys. SMC might have an improved version out by now, but stay away from this one!

4-0 out of 5 stars Does *almost* everything I want
I bought this device about a year ago to hook up my TiVo to my wireless network. I had an SMC wireless router, so it seemed a logical fit. The performance was just "OK", but nothing to rave about.

A month ago, I upgraded my router to a Linksys WRT54G v2 router, and the change was amazing and immediate. All performance issues have vanished and were (obviously) due to the router signal and not the SMC2670W. Very happy now.

The only downside is with firmware upgrades... you (I) can't upgrade wirelessly so I was forced to remove the device (from TiVo) and upgrade it via a cross-connect cable attached to my host PC. This is no small feat, mind you, since the SMC2670W power supply is connected behind my entertainment center. SMC has not supplied a new FW update in a while, so hopefully this will not be an issue again.

3-0 out of 5 stars Infrastructure mode only
It's not immediately obvious that this device works only in 802.11b infrastructure mode. If you not using an access point, and are using 802.11b ad-hoc (peer-to-peer) mode, this device is useless.

You might also want to look at the Linksys WET11, which is very reliable and does not suffer this limitation.

2-0 out of 5 stars constantly loosing connection
I have an SMC network at home and I was very happy with it. I recently tried to connect my Xbox to the network. The first 2670 would loose connection after a few hours. I sent it back and replaced it with one that does the same thing only after a little longer. Since my laptop can get steady connection from virutally the same spot, it is not the location (I used the SMC 2632). Also the 2670 does not allow you to do MAC translation - for those who may need it for gaming beware. The only way to reboot is to unplug the freaky little cable at the back - which in my case is on top of the Xbox in a narrow shelf and it is not easily accessible.
Regarding their other masterpice, the 2435 cardbus adapter - I tried to replace the 2632 with the 2435 - DONT. The Wireless Manager does not detect the card. I saw a similar review on epinions.com and I did not believe the guy...well its true!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great!
I plugged it in, set it up with the web interface and had my SLIMP3 network MP3 player wireless in 5 minutes. It's small and reliable and has a power adaptor that doesn't take up more than one outlet. Highly recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A great way to make broadband even better.
This product was my first attempt at any type of home networking and I had never used a wireless router before. I was very interested in the wireless capability since I mostly use a notebook computer through a DSL connection. Before when I used the computer I was forced to do so in a specific corner of the room so that I was close enough to the phone line that the DSL modem was connected to. Besides the phone cable, there was the ethernet cable running from the modem to the computer, the modem power cable with huge wall wart, a printer cable and printer power cord. It was a mess. The SMC allowed me to move this whole mess into a desk unit, hidden away from sight. In all it took me about an 1/2 hour to install the SMC, connect it to my DSL modem (I did so first through the wired connection to my computer), install the print server and then the SMC wireless card. Without any prior experience the installation went smoothly and without any problem at all. The print server works like a dream and all the documentation, while not extensive, was enough to lead me through all the needed steps. I also connected one of the wired ports to my wife's MAC (I'm PC) and had her using the same DSL connection in about 5 more minutes. I haven't tried to print with the MAC through the server yet, but the documentation says it is possible, but not a supported feature. For me it would just be a bonus to be able to use the same printer for MAC and PC, but the router itself is worth it's weight in gold. I even found that my DSL connection seemed faster when routed through the SMC. The wireless performance is nothing short of amazing and although I do have spots in the house where the performance fails, it works everywhere I need it to. I found just by adjusting the position of the unit and the antenna you can make a connection even in the difficult spots. For the price I couldn't find a better rated unit with this many features and I am please to have purchased it. It's one of those things you say to yourself, "why didn't I do this sooner."

5-0 out of 5 stars Low Cost Easy to Use Wireless Product That Works
I have to say that I'm very impressed with the Barricade line of products. After going through 3 wired Linksys broadband routers, I was totally put off by their products. I would get frequent disconnects, couldn't re-logon/negotiate protocol, etc. until the routers finally died out. I saw the SMC Barricade regular broadband router (not wireless) and used it for 2 months. Not only do I believe it to the best router for the money, I believe it to be one of the best PERIOD. In the 2-month period I used the router, I never got dropped once from my connection. This made we decide to try the SMC Barricade Wireless. I've only used it 2 days, but the product actually works as advertised. I unplugged my wired router, plugged in the proper cables and I was up and running in less than 5 minutes. The web setup feature could be improved, but is still easy to use. The distances advertised are a little optimistic though. I live in a third floor apartment, and wanted to test how far I could go with my laptop. I went across the street and sat on my car and still connected to my 1500/384 dsl connection at about 350kbps. One little tip: don't put the router next to any electrical appliances (especially your desktop computer). I have mine placed on the wall about 5 feet off the floor.

4-0 out of 5 stars Took too long to set up WEP but so far so good...
Well, I replaced my Linksys BEFW11S4 with this unit. Nothing was wrong with the Linksys, just the SMC was cheaper after rebate and had a printserver. I only had to plug everything in and reboot once and the wired connection worked immediately. Wireless also has been working well for almost six hours now but initially took two hours to set up with encryption.

My system:
* Win 98SE
* Both wired and wireless machines with Linksys LNE100TX, WPC11, and Orinoco Gold cards
* HP 5L printer
* constant (8-12 hour daily) usage
* short distance (1 floor) and paper-thin walls
* I received the possibly doomed 750.5435 version. It seems to have come with all the newest firmware and drivers (I checked)
Haven't tried transfers over 4-5MB in size yet...

Pros:
* print server is cool! and works!!
* the price is right! $111 after rebate, minus coupons, etc.
* Nice status reporting in the Web configurator.
* Firewall, MAC filtering, etc.
* Uncomplicated "antihacker" logging (unlike Linksys)
* Limited lifetime warranty

Cons:
* throughput seems a little slower than the Linksys
* Unlike the Linksys, there doesn't seem to be any configuration option prevent the SMC from broadcasting your SSID (so a safety hazard.)
* the sneaking fear that this thing will poop out on me in the next year... it runs rather hot even though I dutifully stuck on the rubber feet to raise it from the table
* The "limited lifetime warranty" is pretty limited: you MUST register within 30 days of purchase or else it's only 90 days. Also, the warranty lasts till only a year after SMC stops selling this model (which may be very soon.) I wonder whether buying an SMC product with a Platinum card will double that year all the same? Double limited lifetime sounds like something that belongs in jail!
* WEP encryption is needlessly confusing and tedious! The fellow who said that a decimal-to-hex converter would have been helpful, was RIGHT.
In the end, to get WEP to work, I had to find and download a hex editor, convert my passphrase into hexadecimal, and enter it by HAND under the Manual Encryption option. This was not so easy since you only get little stars when you type (** ** ** **) so if you made a mistake typing, you wouldn't know! Then I had to reboot all the wireless machines before they could talk to the router. This could get real old if you change your passphrase daily.

I could not get the "automatic" encryption to work, despite a prolonged search for instructions on the SMC site. It may well have been translating my passphrase into hex, but again because it showed up as only stars, I couldn't make sure the wireless machines were using the same passphrase. Certainly it didn't work when I used the automatic encryption and then used the hex-translated version of my passphrase for the wireless cards.

1-0 out of 5 stars Scam Warrenty, Zero Tech Support
SMC's "Lifetime Warrenty" is good for the "Lifetime of the Product", which means that when your product stops working after 1 year (like mine did) they won't fix it. And that's only after you try for days and days to get through to tech support. If you call and they're "busy" you don't even wait on hold, they say "call us back later". And of course, when you call back later, they're still busy. I went through this cycle for days and days until I finally got through and was told my warrenty was worthless.

Buy this product at your own peril.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not great
Had this for more than a year with 4 wireless clients (2 SMCs, 1 Netgear, and 1 Dell TrueMobile). Easy set up (Web interface is decent), great value for the low price I paid (after rebate). I don't use the print server so I can't comment.

The only gripe I had is this thing does require occassional resets. I have it connected to a DSL router and this Ethernet interface occasionally get disconnected and the only way to bring it back is to reset the Barricade. The wireless interface stays up, however, so I can reset it via the Web interface and don't have to walk to the Barricade. ... Read more
