Product Details

Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N Gaming Adapter, Model WGA600N

The Dual-Band Wireless-N Gaming Adapter gives wireless connection capabilities to any wired Ethernet-equipped game console. The Game Adapter can be used in several different ways. If you have an existing home wireless network and a cable or DSL Internet connection, the Game Adapter lets your Xbox®, Xbox 360, PlayStation®2 or 3, or GameCube™ attach to the network so you can get into online games without running wires to the game room. Or, use a pair of Game Adapters to form a "cable-less cable" between two game consoles for head-to-head gaming -- in the same room, or all the way across the house. There's also a special "Wireless LAN Party" mode to connect several consoles at once. It's completely driver-free, so it works on any platform. Since there are no drivers to load, setup is a snap. Just configure the network settings through your PC's web browser, plug it into your game box, and go. The Dual-Band Wireless-N Gaming Adapter provides lag-free gaming with incredible communication speeds when connected to a Wireless-N Access Point or Router. It can also connect to Wireless-A, -B, or -G devices.

        The product is used to bridge computers in the finished basement, to a router in a finished attic. No hassles in snaking a wire within walls of a brick house. Yay!!!! Signal Strength on the highest of N frequency is 70% and stable. I am impressed with this Linksys product.

          I use the product as a wireless bridge for streaming HD video. Works great but lack of an antenna probably costs distance - had to move my wireless router closer for good signal strength.

              I am actually using this with my desktop since I don't have room to add a wireless pci card. The adapter works well, but it only comes with a quick start guide. You have to go to Linksys' website if you want the real manual.

                Works very nicelt with Directv on demand programming if you cannot do a direct wired connection to your router/modem. Directv recognises it and the setup was a breeze, took 5 minutes from start to finish.

                I can't comment on how this would work for gaming because I don't use it for that. But, I have my LCD TV hooked up to my home wireless with this, and I download movies pretty quickly. No problems connecting or hooking up to my home network

                  I bought this to use with my new LG BD 300 Blu-ray dvd player to stream Netflix movies-it works perfectly, has no antenna to break, and is very unobtrusive.

                  Comments about Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N Gaming Adapter:

                  Using this for DirecTV internet connect works fine but is not very fast using wireless G Linksys, however, still adequate but does take a while to download movies from DirecTV ON Demand but still gets the job done albeit somewhat longer than hoped for.

                  We bought this because we wanted to download movies and tv shows onto our DVR from Direct TV. We have a Linksys router for our computer and everyone says that both are easy set-ups. NOT SO. We had to call Direct TV and Linksys for set up instructions. It took hours talking to reps from another country. Worth it but you have to have time.
