Summary: My desktop PC is old, but this Netgear N-150 WiFi adapter installed in minutes and works like a charm. I have had this adapter for a couple of years now, and it always prompts me when it's time to update the software. An added feature that I like is that it identifies the channels other routers nearby might be using, so that you can change your channel if too many other people are using it.
Excerpt: Our little non-profit needed a second computer. We had received an old computer as a donation which we wanted to use in the lobby. Along comes the Netgear N150 WiFi USB Adapter. Our refurbished and software updated "old" computer is now another workhorse in the office, and it is linked to our printer by WiFi.
Excerpt: We set up two computers for wireless operation. They are each about 30 feet from the main router. We find we have to continually press the WPS button on the Netgear WiFi Adapter and the router to gain back communication. The adapters come with wire connections which Netgear recommends using to extend the range. We are using these. We are considering hard wiring the computers to get more reliable service.
Excerpt: I'm very happy with the N150 WiFi. It turned my sporadic internet connection into a solid speedy one. One down side: I need to reboot my PC periodically when the connection cuts out. But after the reboot it works like new again.I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.
Excerpt: This WiFi connection was easy to install. Using it is easy also. Just plug in and it conncets with the available WiFi connection. The speed and connectivity are consistent. No pauses while surfing the Web.
