Setup time from opening box to full deployment, maybe 10 minutes. Much of that was adjusting position to maximize range to various parts of the house. Some of the other reviewers who spoke of difficulties in setup may have been experiencing some confusion from expectations. Setting up ANY wireless access point requires some knowledge of networking. None of them are "out-of-the-box". But I found the setup trivial if you follow the (admitedly terse) instructions.

Only real complaint I have is that this one DOES NOT come with external antennas. It has two external SMA-RP connectors for attaching them, but they would be an extra purchase. In my case, the internal 3 dBi antenna worked fine for all but one of my devices which was at the farthest point. I purchased a pair of external omnidirectional 9 dBi antennas (about $16) and this immediately doubled the signal strength at my farthest point and problem solved. So I would say try it without buying the extrenal antennas first and see what kind of performance you get, but be aware that you may need the external antennas or a WiFi range extender depending on the size of your coverage area.

This purchase was a replacement for a LinkSys WAP that had failed after many years of service and I am getting comparable performance from this one that I got from the one it replaced so no issues there. Bottom line is reasonably priced and works well for me. Setup was easy (particularly if you are familiar with how to set one up in the first place).

In trying to get internet access to my employees at my Domino's I am forced to go through the Domino's supplied Cisco router. After not getting a simple belkin router to work off one of the free Cisco ports I was told I needed a WAP. This netgear was the least expensive at Staples so I gave it a try. After many configuration changes the technical guys on Domino's end said it wont work because I only have one IP address and with the security they have setup it's never going to connect to the internet.

So I order a static block and try to get this WAP working again. This time skipping the Cisco and going right off one of the extra ports on the Time Warner supplied modem. No matter how I configured this Netgear I could not get interent through my connection. I could when I plug the cable right into my laptop though. So I hook the $20 Belkin router up and bam IMMEDIATELY have internet. All this work for nothing. Gladly returned the $100 WAP to Staples and happily using my Belkin again...

Need IT degree to set up

Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE Business Class Wireless-N Access Point WN203-100NAS:

This is not a plug and play device. You will need to download the manual from Netgear.com in order to start the setup process. Unless you know how to interpret the language used you will not be able to get this device to work. We returned the device 2 days later after spending several hours trying to get this set-up properly.

Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE Business Class Wireless-N Access Point WN203-100NAS:

Installed in our small office. It is used to connect phones and printers to our network. The sped is quick. Install was fairly easy. I wish it came with antennae, I didn't realize that when I purchased it.
