Summary: I think this is pretty pricey for a USB with no ext antenna and issues. I have several Wireless routers: Vz Actiontec, EnGenius ESR600H, and an old Linksys WRT54GL. WPA2 fails on all of them with this client. Money is better spent on a higher rated adapter. BUYER BEWARE!
Pros: When it works, it works well. The range is decent for USB stick with built in antenna.
Cons: Its doesn't drop connection - it maintains a physical link. There appears to be a problem with WPA2 encryption such that it appears to lose connection. It has link but no data xfer. I have to reconnect to xfer. This comes in several versions. I have the oldest I think. The client software is medi...
Pros: Works out of the box with Ubuntu 11.10, kernel 3.0. Good signal strength. Dual Band, 2.4 / 5 Ghz, so real N throughput. Comes with USB extension cable, and a little stand, so you can position it for best signal.
Cons: A little bulky, but mine sticks out the back of my desktop, under the desk, so not really a problem for me.
Summary: THIS PRODUCT *WILL* WORK WITH WINDOWS 7. All you need to do is to access the included driver cd and have windows look under the equivalent Vista version's folder during the new hardware search. It just takes a little digging, but is not hard to find.
Pros: Dependable -- purchased back in 2009 and have not had any problems since. I have updated the firmware, however, since purchasing.
Cons: A little bulky when trying to stick directly in the back of a PC.
Summary: This item was shipped to me WITHOUT the USB CRADLE or USB CABLE. The listed image is incorrect. Newegg will not change the product description. I've used this item before with a cradle and it's serviceable.
Pros: Good signal strength Easy installation
Cons: Gets very warm quickly Blue activity indicator LED is very bright Has to be undocked/docked to renew wireless connection periodically
Pros: It establishes a good strong connection under Windows XP SP3. Range is lackluster.
Cons: Does not work with Win 7, and the tech support from Belkin is horrid! I used to like and trust this brand, but not anymore. The fact that they will not make Win7 drivers for this device is ridiculous! It is still sold on store shelves and online, and for more than $40, support shouldn't already b...
Summary: The con might be due to my OS (XP 64) but I don't see why that would be an issue. If it wasn't for the con, I would of given 5 eggs.
Pros: Installation, signal strength & speeds are great.
Cons: The device stops working randomly, the blue LED light either turns off or just stays solid and you lose all connectivity. You have to unplug it and plug it back in. This happens on average 1-3 times per hour.
Summary: Had this on my computer and went to W7, then this would not work. After trying for about an hour to figure out why (who would believe one of the main networking company's would not make a driver for an N adapter BUT instead would try to make you buy a new one to just get more of your money out of a...
