How much time would be required to be devoted to this if someone takes it up? The reason for asking is so that i dont take it up and then cannot do justice to it.

10-15 Hours Per Week
We ask testers to dedicate an hour or two every day. We don't ask for a huge commitment but we do expect regular feedback and reports of any issues discovered. Our software makes the whole process very simple.

Oh, that is way too much to do for fun. If it was an hour or two a week, then it is ok to do for no pay. This kind of 15 hr a week is like a part time job. I guess it reduces the number of people required for QA/testing etc. The work is like a qa person's job, so you are asking for about 400-600$ worth of work per week.

It is a volunteer thing. Most people put in much more than that. We typically give good incentives but an hour or two week is not worth our time. It is balanced. Most people integrate the product into their lives and that small amount of time daily becomes very easy.

Would be nice if you can tell us what are the good iincentives. I could not find much info on the website.

Incentives vary from test to test. On some projects you get to keep the product. On others, you get gift certificates from Amazon or ThinkGeek. Other companies give gifts like handhelds or iPods. However, the goodies are the smaller of the benefits of beta testing.
Being a beta tester means you get to see new technology first. You get a chance to be involved in the development of a new product and you get to meet industry people like yourself. We have nearly 20,000 people who have volunteered for a chance to try new products.
Beta testing is a lot of fun.

You say wifi user, I am confused on what you mean by that. I have a wireless network in my house, my PC doesn't use it though, mine is wired.

Trust me, it won't feel like a chore, and it is, indeed, a lot of fun.
Hopefully I'll get approved for this one, but if not, there's always next time
