Pros: Yes, it gives you 300 mbps if you have the right access point. The price is moderate.
Cons: Connection is sometimes somehow unstable; a reconnection attempt happens once in a few days, sometimes taking half a minute to regain the connection. Hopefully it's a driver issue which will be ironed out.
Summary: Don't buy. A glass of water is a much cheaper way to ruin a PC.
Pros: It was fairly cheap
Cons: Well that's easy - I had it installed for about 20 minutes before it shorted out my motherboard. So, if you're willing to risk that, then this is a great product. Otherwise avoid as though it were made of anthrax.
Pros: I have a desktop with 3 HDDs, Win7 on one, Win XP on a second, and Ubuntu on the last. I had purchased a refurbished Netgear wifi adapter (locally) and it worked fine with Windows, but didn't work with Linux. After reading through numerous threads on the Ubuntu Forum, I decided that it would be best to change. I read some reviews for this Edimax adapter, and it was touted as being good for both Windows and Linux. I've had it for a while now, and it works great in both...

Summary: This is the first PCI express wireless adapter that I have ever purchase. The product came as advertised and was really easy to install. I have been using this adapter for 2 months now and haven't had any problems so far. The only issue I had was that I had to change the bracket to the smaller size. It comes in standard size but that's too big for mini tower.
Summary: I purchased this adapter specifically because the description stated it was Linux compatible. After a week-long interaction with Edimax tech support, it has come to light that it is not compatible with Linux kernels newer than 3.6. Another issue is reliability - mine was also DOA, so I cannot vouch for it's operation performance.
Summary: Right now, my ps3, wii u and laptops and phones have all connection downstairs so this computer should definitely still receive it.
Pros: So I had an older computer that I'm upgrading so I wanted to move this to the living room and hook it up to the tv. The only thing this needed was a wireless adapter since it's not connected by lan. I ordered this because of the price and reviews and installed this adapter. Right now, my internet does work with it which is why I'm giving it a 5 star rating, but this might change depending on when I finally move this machine to the living room and if it even picks up s...
