Work great 7/24/2013
Good value and good performance. Fast shipping
Seems to be a great product. 6/13/2012
John from Los Angeles, CA
I've used this device a couple of times and it seems to work well. I say "seems" because I don't have an N router. It works with the one I have and appears to give it a bit of a snap but the speed listed on my laptop is 54mbs.
netgear WNA3100 worthless 6/12/2012
without an internet provider this item is worthless, faulty, signal on/off light didn't work, should have given it a 1 overall but have some pity that this item does work elsewhere.
Refurbished but works like a new one 5/31/2012
Phil from Tucson, AZ
Adapter works perfect, had doubts about a refurbished adapter but no problems here. You will need to download the setup software but this is easy if you have access to the internet. If you don't have internet access would not recommend this adapter since it does not come with the setup CD.
Netgear is amazing. 5/29/2012
Chaos from Utah
So i purchased this on a whim that i might be able to increase my connection speed and it has. but maybe not in the hardware capabilities. when i connected this device to my network, it told me that if i changed my router to a different security setting i could increase data tranfer speed. so i did it and it almost doubled my download speed. i am very pleased with this product and for the brand name that i will trust forever now. thanks netgear.
Good refurbished product for the price. 5/28/2012
Jignesh from Troy, MI
Worked fine with Ubuntu Linux
Pretty Satisfied 5/25/2012
I bought this to connect to a 42" Panasonic plasma tv, and the tv didn't recognize the network card. I just decided to use it for my PS3, which seems to be working just fine. So it worked out, for the price!
Works with Ubuntu out of box 5/24/2012
HA2000 from Mukilteo, Washington
I have many USB wireless adapters many of them do not work with Linux Ubuntu.
I found this item on sale and wanted it for an XP machine. I was very happy to see that it worked with Ubuntu 11.04 and Mint 12.
The best USB wireless adapter I have for Linux.
great simple product.
plug in and dl the software online before use.
everything was smooth :D
Very good product. 5/16/2012
Saver from Las Vegas, NV
Product worked very well. The range was ok, but was able to established network connection on boot to login screen, which is required for remote desktop. A lot of USB wireless adapters won't do this. The usb extension came in handy. Only con, had to download drivers (I bought a refurbished one ), which was no big deal. Other than that, was very satisfied with product and an excellent value for the money.
This product works well for the price. I am pleased with it's performance. The installation was pretty much straight forward.
Great so far 5/16/2012
Got this yesterday and so far so good. It was easy enough to setup and it works like I was hoping.
Refurbished wireless N adapter WNA-1100 5/14/2012
DTC3 from St Louis, MO
Low price, but supplied without the advertised installation CD. Impossible to download driver online because its serial number was "not valid." Netgear support wanted to charge a higher price than the price for the item to supply the driver software. Item nonfunctional and incomplete.
Bhavesh Nakrani from southlake,TX
So far working really good. range is quite a bit tricky. but everything else is working fine.
Outstanding product and price 5/13/2012
I could hardly believe it when I saw this USB wireless N adaptor advertised for its price. But I ordered it and have been 100% satisfied with it. It installed easily and works flawlessly. What I especially like is the docking cradle which provides a double benefit: eliminates the possibility of the adaptor breaking off when inserted directly into the onboard USB port and allows positioning the adaptor for maximum signal reception. A GREAT bonus!
Refurb does not come with software 5/10/2012
Anthony Wang from Hilliard, OH
The refurbished netgear USB wireless adapter does not come with software. For other hardware, it is usually not an issue since you can download from the manufacturer's website and usually want to download the latest driver anyway. But for a wireless adapter, you run into a catch-20 issue where you need the adapter to access the internet but you need to access the internet to get the driver for the adapter. I don't mind the brown box and lack of instruction but would like to see driver included.
Works as Advertised 5/8/2012
We have two PC's in our office. My wife's is across the room and had a long Ethernet cable connecting it to our router. Drivers installed flawlessly on Windows XP and it connected up to my Asus router (running DD-WRT) without any issues.
Problem with installation on Windows XP 5/3/2012

Easy set up 5/2/2012
Easy set up and works very well. How can you go wrong for the low price you pay?
needs some time to setup 4/26/2012
unable to connect to regular wireless router at the first
Great Product 4/26/2012
Chris from Mountaintop, PA
Easy to setup, the desktop mount helps with signal strength as its not hiding in a desk.
Little, but great product!! 4/24/2012
LD from San Francisco, CA
This item is simply great. It worked right away after it was connected to my desktop. The stand makes it look very professional as well. I would definitely recommend this product!! 1000X times better than internal network card based on practicability. Extremely satisfied!!
Happy Customer 4/24/2012
Bryan from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
Works great. Downloaded software from Netgear. Installation was a snap. Didn't need the extension cable for my laptop, but can easily use it for other USB purposes.
Terrible Range 4/24/2012
Easy to use, but the range is terrible more than 20 feet away from the router.
Extremely pleased. 4/24/2012
Have 3 other different Netgear wireless adapters but lost the installation disks and trying to find the correct download for old hardware is near impossible. This adapter includes a nice cradle that holds the it upright.
Wonderful Item! 4/24/2012
R Cahill from Brooklyn, NY
I was not sure how good this would be, considering the price. I thought at the very least I could use the cradle it came with to put my wireless adapter higher for a better signal. As soon as I got it hooked up, I was quite pleased. I put my recently purchased adapter back in the box, and returned it to Best Buy. A good item at a good price.
Wireless Netgear 150 Mbps/w adapter 4/24/2012
DW from Battle Creek, MI
Problem with Netgear Wireless. It has limited range does not reach through walls at all. Put the Netgear 300 Mbps wieless in the adapter and it works great. So the wireless N 150 is worthless for any distance.
Great Buy 4/24/2012
This N-Standard Wireless adapter has an included extension cable which provides lots of flexibility in the placement and use of the adapter.
not bad 4/19/2012
Vicman from Phoenix Az
Coming with a base and being a wireless N and G and for the price this is a very good choice. Also comes with a push button to set up with a router that has the same security feature.
Good Product 4/17/2012
Mike from Troy, MI
Wonderful product, Plug and paly and easy to use.
Henry from atlanta Georgia
This Is a Good Product. Only Problem I Have Is That The Ad Says It Comes With The Installation Driver, But When I Received The Product It Says Go To The Website To Download Information On Installation.
Could not be better 4/17/2012
Bruce from Pueblo, CO
Received device in perfect condition. After dowloading driver from NetGear's webpage install was smooth and trouble free. Device found my network, I entered the password and was online in a few minutes.
Does the job, but nothing fancy. 4/17/2012
Wi-fi adapter has a long cord dongle, which is nice. No software provided...had to go to the Netgear website for Windows XP. Worked out of the box with Linux. Windows software didn't install properly. Had to back up driver, uninstall Netgear software, and reinstall just the drivers; now it works in XP.
Fast And Small 4/17/2012
William Young. from Saint Petersburg FL
I have purchase USB Doggles manufactured by Netgear before, And they have all seemed to be Bulky and slow, Not the case with this one. Fast and small, Defiantly would recommend this to a friend, Or even family!
A Good Value - Skip The Install Wizard 4/17/2012
Marty913 from Pensacola, Florida
Considering plug-in wireless adapters from a name brand vendor routinely sell for 4-5 times more, I would rate the Netgear WNA1100 as a "5" value-wise. The performance is a "3" but does perform at 150 (maximum advertised) IF the distance is relatively short or on the same level as your router. Installation is somewhat of a pain as the "smart wizard" rates only a "3" as it keeps hanging up when detecting the adapter. Re-detecting the hardware without the wizard worked fine.
No software CD 4/17/2012
narendar gupta from ocean township nj
Awful. Does not work. No software CD. No instructions. End up downloading some different thing. These products should not be sold general public.

Good usb wireless for the price 4/16/2012
Rick from Sherwood AR
Have only used one of the two I bought so far. I plugged into a computer running Ubuntu linux this past weekend. At first wasn't sure if it was working so i hooked the computer up to an ethernet connection and got my software updates. Then added my wireless router to network wireless connections and it came up asked for the password and connected. So all is well.
