Summary: I struggled with slow internet for ages. Finally the repair guy suggested it might not be the router, it might be my wireless adapter on my desktop. I bought this, it shipped quickly, and it instantly solved my internet problems. Now I can enjoy Netflix like all the cool kids. No more dial up speeds for me. I'm finally on 5G!
Summary: By far the fastest wireless i've ever used! Even though my home connection is 10% as fast as this device I still get lightning quick downloads and wireless gaming as if I was hardwired to the router!! By far the best for the price as far as I'm concerned. I have always been a fan of ASUS products and this one lives up to my expectations and then some!!
Summary: Its fast! i liked the accompanying software as well as well as the short bendable but rigid USB extender that came along with it. useful for raising or bending it in a way especially if you're using a laptop. It also connects fast upon booting.. and the flashing LED lights tell you right away. Transferring of files is fast as compared to just the normal built-in wifi adapter on your laptop.
Summary: As this is a product review, it will include the quality of customer service: I bought this to connect to my 5.0Ghz signal through my Windows 8.1 desktop. And yes, I downloaded the latest drivers from the ASUS site. While the unit picked up my 2.4 signal, it picked up no 5.0 signals. I know my router is putting out the 5.0Ghz as other equipment is connected to it.

Summary: I found the product a disappointment not because it doesn't work but because of the rebate process. I thought after filling out a bunch of data online my rebate would be processed but no. After a few weeks I get an e-mail that my rebate is not being processed because I have not mailed in my UPC. If it takes twice the work of a regular rebate what is the purpose.
Summary: One of the better USB adapters i've used. As a graduate of a certain big box stores computer geek department I have tried many, many USB sticks. This one definitely stands at the top. The installation is as easy as any USB stick. If you are looking to add 300Mbps WiFi capability to a Laptop or a Desktop that doesn't have an open PCI slot, this is the way to go. The reception for me has been excellent in some very challenging environment.
Summary: I am forced to use Century Link as my provider. For many of you I shouldn't have to say more but their best router is a POS at best. I did hook it up to an ASUS router with amazing results and now it sends 5g and 2.4 g signals throughout the house. Recently a guest of ours couldn't pick up the 5g signal so we bought this one to see if it could work. It was a dream. The instant his computer installed the hardware, the 5g signal appeared.
Summary: asus.. cmon now. I've been a faithful customer for years but recently I have been let down when it comes to networking. First, i paid more for asus and this antenna came with really bad drivers/software. good luck finding the 5ghz band with the asus drivers. doesn't even matter if you use netgear or asus routers. it will only pick up on 2.4ghz bands (meaning this is a single band antenna) that's why you bought this antenna right? NO!
Summary: Worked very well to make my servers run on the home wireless netowrk until the cable coube be run to ne new office. I was suprised at how well these worked! I wanted something to use when transitioning my office from one location to another. Just to keep them connected until the full wiring could be in place. I had a few options, but using these, I could re-purpose them MUCH easier after they weren't needed on the servers any more.
