Netgear MP101


Within the nondescript Netgear MP101 lies a competent wired and wireless music player, with a price that would have been extraordinary a year ago.

If you can live without photos and video, an on-screen display, and front-panel controls, this device is a good value.

Simple and elegant design, easy to set up and use

No digital output

Netgear's MP 101 is a great wireless audio player with an easy setup and straightforward operation. It's only lacking a digital output.

Netgear MP101 - Wireless Digital Music Player


Building on its home networking stronghold, Netgear wants to help you listen to your library of digital music even when you're nowhere near your PC.

We enjoyed testing the MP101 and found it very easy to install and use with good playback quality. The unit offers excellent levels of control over the music provided by the Media Server so you can mix and match tracks to your heart's content. The...

Netgear - MP101


The Netgear MP101 is a media streamer and decoder with both wired and wireless Ethernet connections, a remote control, and an LCD display. In other words, it's a home MP3 player with network connections built in. ...

The MP101 might be just what some people have been wishing for. We're certainly going to hang onto the review unit! It is a well made and well-conceived product and deserves to do well, despite the minor usability niggles. It's a worthy addition to the...

Netgear MP101


Although it looks great and is a wonderful concept, the actual implementation of the MP101 falls well short of the mark.

Terrific bedroom audio player


I bought this on "big, colorful auction giant" about 3 months ago, brand new for 30 bucks, 10.00 shipping. I feel I got a good price. I would not, however buy this for the 75.00 advertised here. The device hasn't had a firmware update since 11/2004....

Small footprint -- Similar to a stack of VHS movies on the nightstand ; Amplified 1/8" "headphone" jack in rear ; Line-out for stereo receiver ; Clean lighted LCD screen ; Screensaver, which turns off screen lighting after 15 seconds -- perfect for...

Wireless stability is a joke -- this device actually inspired me to wire the whole house with cat5e. First room was of course, the bedroom with the mp101 in it ; The device is from back in 2004, and it shows; operationally. Sometimes, it will fail to...

They had their chance


Basically a useless box for me. I tried setting it up on 5 different computers (W2K/XP) including a dedicated clean box as the only node on a Netgear equipment only wireless network and on a 10/100 LAN. Their media server software starts having...

Nice product


I have a Shuttle box set up as a media PC in my living room. It is connected to my home theater system. When we finished our basement I wanted to be able to play our music files on a stereo without another PC. Worked great out of the box. I updated the...

Product Specifications

NETGEAR's line of antennas and accessories gives you multiple options for maximizing the reach and performance of your wireless devices. Every WLAN deployment is unique. When planning a network that incorporates wireless, varying facility sizes, construction materials, distance between transmission points and physical obstructions must be accounted for. With both directional and omni-directional antennas (also referred to as range extenders), low-loss cables, mounting hardware, and other accessories, installers can customize a wireless solution that meets the requirements of even the most challenging applications. This 10m antenna cable offers low loss at 2.4 GHz and added flexibility for setting up access points at a greater distance from a power source. It comes with reverse SMA connectors and provides a standard connection optimized for use with NETGEAR's line of WLAN antennas, and Booster/Power Injector products (range can be drastically reduced if longer or higher loss cables than this are used.)
