Yes, I use mine to stream Netflix over my Wii. It works perfect, only time I have a problem is when Netflix is having issues. I have used this router and had multiple movies streaming from Netflix at the same time on different devices (laptops, and wii).

Yes. I have Charter and have had this router for maybe 2 years. I pay for their high speed that is 30mbps. However! I'm having issues with streaming, especially from Amazon (movies, tv shows) they were low quality and sometimes froze. So I called Charter, and the gentleman came out checking all my incoming lines and so on, and then we looked at this router. We pulled out the box which I still had, and sure enough, "streaming video" is not checked on this model. It's not fast enough so the quality is not up to par. I'm on here now looking to upgrade....

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.

answer 1
It means that you have to have some sort of wireless device that supports those formats to use the wireless connectivity of the router. Otherwise, you need to use the Ethernet ports on the back to create a wired connection.
answered 1 year, 8 months ago
By
Seredetia
answer 2
By that, it's talking about the WPS feature. What WPS does is if you have a compatible Wireless adapter (Most devices do), you can connect to the network, and before putting in the password it will display a prompt asking if you want to use WPS. If you hit yes, then you hit the button on the front of the router near the bottom and it allows you to connect without the password. This feature only functions when a computer is waiting to connect and you hit the button, and turns off automatically once you connect. This feature makes it easy if you forget your password or have a really long password that you don't want to put in.

I suppose that this depends on if your computer supports WiFi? If you have WiFi installed in your computer, then you will not need an adapter. If, however, you do not have a computer that is able to connect to a WiFi network, then...yes, you need an adapter.
