Excerpt: The adapter looses internet connection when the computer hasn't been used in a while and the only way to get to connect again is by restarting the computer. I've called tech support and they have no clue and just waste hours of your time doing the same thing over and over again.
Summary: I bought this adapter for a new desktop that came without an internal adapter. This was my first USB wireless adapter and I have to say it far outperforms any internal adapter I have ever used. The mounting dock and long USB cord allow you a lot of flexibility to position the adapter for the strongest possible signal from the router. I get much faster transfer speeds with greater bandwidth than previous wireless-g adapters used with the same router.
Excerpt: Needed a desktop upstairs and was unable to run a new cable. Bought this at staples, installed the software and after plugging this into a usb port I had instant internet. Very easy and same speed as hooked to a cable.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Summary: This adapter will not work with vista. After 3 days of trying to install this , Netgear said it was either faulty or my computer would not recognize it. It was so bad that it took down my internet and I had to reinstall that.
Summary: My internet connectivity was noticeably and frustratingly slower with this product, but I needed the computer for my business so I trudged through. But now not even 3 months after my purchase, it's dead. No notice. No discernible cause. Worked fine yesterday, today NOTHING. What the?!? Really. Complete waste of money.
