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.

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.
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.
Good hardware, terrible software caused crashes every 10 minutes

Summary: Asus makes fantastic routers and I've been using them for years. Naturally, I looked to get an ASUS network adapter to go along with my N66u router. Unfortunately, this adapter seems to have terrible software issues and in my case, it caused my computer to crash with the BSOD every 10-30 minutes.
Summary: I bought this adapter to make up for the lack of Wireless N support on my Asus EEE box which I use as my HTPC. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and when I installed the drivers (provided on the CD) for the adapter, I was given errors that the drivers are unsigned.
Summary: This is my second dongle like this and I bought it because it is dual channel. ASUS are a bit slow in releasing a updated driver for windows 8.1 so I am stuck with a single channel device until then.
Summary: This product doesn't work out of the box, and even when you get it working the results are far from great. On Windows, the drivers installed by default when you plug it in are almost useless, as you can't see any WiFi network.
I am sure the device is great when it works but at this moment in time

Summary: It hasn't been a pleasant experience trying to get this device to work with my computer. It took over half an hour to get it to work with Window 8 and now Windows 10 doesn't even want to know! ironically a cheap and cheerful wifi dongle i bought for my Raspberry Pi worked with my pc straight away.
