WDS Only on WG602v2 or WG602v3

  • User Rating: Disappointing

  • Ease of Installation:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:Seems to do ok as a simple little WAP. Setup was fairly easy.

Cons:Check product version -v2 or -v3 if you're seeking bridging or repeater capability.

Three versions of same hardware. WG602 is not WDS (Wireless Distribution System)ready. Make sure you note which one you are purchasing. The box should have WG602v2 or WG602v3 (White Color of Access Point). The basic version WG602 (aka WG602v1) is not WDS Ready -- that means no bridging or repeater capabilities. Nobody tells you that so be aware. For simple "Access Point Use" it seemed ok. No WPA but the WEP seemed to work ok. Check www.netgear.com for latest firmware as the standard WG602 has some security issues right out of the box. This seems to be netgears illegitimate son of a product. Also, Netgear's customer support is slim -- Absolutely no 800 phone support. Unless you're in the $30 USD range 8/2005, I'd pass on this one.
