It does broadcast wireless G so it should be compatible with your ethernet card, or wireless card.

But if you're seriously still running ME, you should at least upgrade to Windows XP, or Winows 7.

not sure if you got an answer to this but here goes: it should work wired to your pc. you must make sure your LAN adapter settings are set to allow the router dynamic IP capibility (default is set up correctly) Next is wireless, now that's a bit more tricky. Wirelss internet will work with your adapter, not the OS, so as long as you have a more recent wireles adapter you should be fine, I would not plan on using WEP encryption. it may cause problems with connectivity.

It could help, but try connecting a cat5 cable between the blueray and the netgear, if that is an option for you. That is how I streamed with my blueray and 1.5Mbps DSL. The other thing to check is your blueray.

Question

Will this work for Netflix streaming ?

I have mid level DSL. Streams fine on my computer. I want it on my TV. Will be buying a roku at the same time.

Never had a router before.

I can buy a refurb for about half price so I was thinking of going that route.

Will this router & roku be all I need to watch NF streaming ?
Thanks !

Yes it will but only if thats the ONLY thing you wish to use at the time. if you plan to use ANYTHING else at the same time, i highly suggest you pick up the cisco e2500 router for 30 more, its worth it

answer 3
Yes. Just make sure that (if you set up a password) you do not have spaces in the password. The PS3 will not recognize some characters and spaces and will not accept the password if it is too long. I have no idea why that is, but mine had difficulty connecting when I had a space in the router password. The router will also work with Xbox 360, Wii and the PSP...and just about anything else with WiFi.
