Summary: Cons: driver with product did not support 5GHz on Win8.1 at all. Driver download from ASUS website resolved this. Advertised dual 2.4GHz + 5GHz could not get to work. No support literature for this supposed functionality. Wireless connection manager software is slower than built in windows and is not very intuitive for some setup. Pros: fast 300Mb/s on either 2.4 or 5ghz, lower latency compared to factory wifi.
Summary: Everything is good as mentioned in other reviews here. One thing to note, I'm using Window 7 64-bit system, but the drivers on CD or Asus web cannot get it working; I can see adapter in system as a grey icon but cannot truly Enable it. I ended up manually installing WindowXP 64-bit driver from the CD to get the adapeter working. Painful experience.
Summary: as shipped I couldn't get it to recognize the 5ghz SSID from my ASUS router. After many exhausting attempts, I finally got it to recognize the signal by upgrading the firmware to the most recent edition on the ASUS website.
Summary: The adapter is awesome, let's me connect to either a 2.5GHz or 5.0GHz network. The included software can be useful but I've had some slight bugs with it (have yet to attempt to resolve them). Using the included software, you can easily force the adapter to use only 2.5 or 5.0 bands, or both. I have not had any signal drops or slow-downs since I started using this.
Summary: When it connected correctly, it works fine. Only problem that I have is I have to unplug the adapter after the computer is rebooted, the system just somehow couldn't find any wireless network - the system was able to see the adapter, but just couldn't find any wireless network.
Summary: Take notice of James D'Arcy's review. I ordered 2 of these and had to set them both up manually following James's instructions. They didn't work on both of my PCs, both running windows 7 (one on 32bit the other on 64bit). Once I installed the XP drivers they work fine and are stable so far. Update: Turns out it isn't windows 7 (either 32 or 64 bit) that's the problem with my system at least. It was the zonealarm firewall!
Summary: it works very well. nice design, but unable to conect to the 5 Ghz band after I upgrade win 8 to win 8.1. the tecnich service has confirmed that there is issues with the software and the win8.1 upgrade, that hopully will get resolved when the update is released.
Summary: This wireless dongle was purchased to go with the ASUS RT-N66U wireless router and I like that it has matching a design pattern. There is also included a very short but flexible USB attachment lead for better positioning of the dongle. On the side of the dongle is a small button for quick pairing to a wireless router if you have a supported device. When in operation, I achieve excellent signal strength on both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands.
Summary: Максимально зафиксированная скорость 10 Мбайт/с. Проблема одна: при закачке больших объемов данных пропадает из системы. Похоже перегревается. Грешил на все кроме него: на мать, на память, на дрова. Все перетестил. Вывод один — адаптер. Снова бы не купил.
