Wireless Lan Converter

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am enjoying my wireless internet LAN converter immensely. I do have some occasional drop out issues but I relate that to my internet service more so then the LAN adapter. I agree with other reviews that Pioneer is charging and excessive amount for this product. Other competitors keep it under under $100.00 for a similar unit. I did have a few issues trying to get it work on the day I installed it, but finally all was well. I am fairly tech savvy, wasn't like I didn't have any idea how to set it up. I have set up all my wireless equipment (PS 3, laptops, Apple I Mac, wireless printer etc.) This unit did give me some trouble for some reason.

Pros: Works pretty well overall. Nice to not have to run ehternet cable all the way from my router. It wasn't an easy option so this was great!

Cons: A bit overpriced by Pioneer. Some issues trying to get it to work on my protected wireless system.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is a great item that works exactly how it is advertised to. Straightforward easy instruction on how to send your network information to the device. I have had it connected now for just about two months and am happy to say that I have not had any problems with it & would recommend it for someone who wants to have wireless functionality. Functionality that you will in my opinion pay far too much for, but the cleaner look & streaming ability(see pros) via IPhone-IPad is well worth it to me.

Pros: When I purchased my new A/V receiver I was determined to take advantage of all the features I was paying for. As much as I like the included Ipod cable, there is simply no comparison to the wi-fi adapter. I used it with my Ipad on Christmas & everyone was stunned and impressed with what you can do. And how easy it is to do it. With your Ipad,Iphone you can easily control all of the receivers myriad functions and stream all of the music in your home through your stereo speakers.

Cons: The only problem I have with this device is the same as another reviewer. It's COST.

Works great - support and cost terrible

Dax from Brooklyn on 7/1/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Connecting my new Pioneer receiver to the internet is great! However... It's way too expensive. Should be built in, or available for a small fraction of this cost. Pioneer couldn't help me figure out how to configure my home network to get this to work. I was on my own even though I have very common hardware and software. Paying this much for a $10 device should guarantee lots of helpful support.
