Finally! Something works!

Pros:Easy configuration, no installation CDs, simple connections, tiny form factor, works flawlessly.

Cons:None yet. 

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this if you need to get an ethernet device on your wireless network.  A printer was NOT one of the devices recommended but it definitely works.


Since installing Verizon Fios w/Actiontec router, I needed a way to get my HPLaserjet 2420 which is ethernet enabled, to wirelessly connect to the network which is now located 3 floors down from where it was prior to this.

I know there are ethernet bridge devices out there, not many, but I was told the best one to use was the Cisco WET610N which would act as a bridge on the network.  Well, after installing the CD, which I never do as a rule, I spent the next 6 hours without ever getting the device to work. Spoke to the Cisco tech who I could barely understand, and then determined this thing was either faulty or crappy.

I decided to try the Netgear WNCE2001 as a last resort.  When I unboxed it, I noticed it was the size of a deck of cards, no installation CD, but 2 ways to obtain power: either USB or power outlet, and figured since it was so darn tiny, it would never work!

It needed to be set up differently than the Cisco, which was a true bridge setup.  This Netgear required you to hook up directly to your computer's ethernet connection and go to their webpage for configuration.   Rather than disconnect my PC wire, I used my laptop and the USB power, got to the home page, set this up not DHCP but with a static IP which it administered according to the Actiontec, and set the WEP security code in Key 1, hit finish, disconnected the LAN wire, hooked up the HP 3 floors above, hooked up the power outlet, and in 5 short minutes, I WAS PRINTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Works like a charm!  Cheapest device, best connection for me!
