Excerpt: I've had a home network for well over 10 years now. I went wireless about 5 years ago when my wired router died (circa 2009). I don't know if an N adapter was available at that time, and either way, I was unaware of the pending change, and installed a G wireless adapter--which served me well...
Works well with Linux- one small hoop to jump through.

Summary: This product works as advertised- the maximum 300Mb/s far exceeds what my ISP is giving me so I have access to my full internet speed. I'm currently using it with Linux Mint 17.1. There is one thing- I got the V4 version.
Works great but just seems to have an issue with heat

Summary: After my OpenSuSE box's wireless kept on dying perfectly synchronized with kernel updates, I went out and got this wireless usb adapter. For the most part it works out of the box and I did not have to any extra configuration on an OpenSuSE 13.1 box. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: 1.
Summary: I use this little wireless N adapter whenever I am setting up or fixing a computer and don't have access to an Ethernet connection. Just plug the adapter into a USB2 or USB3 port (no extra speed advantage when using USB3), install the driver and it is good to go.
Summary: i bought these adapters because they used to use the atheros chipset, which is basically plug and play in linux. the adapters amazon has in stock now at the v4 adapters, which use the realtek chipset. if you aren't familiar with linux, it's a real headache to get the drivers installed and working.
Summary: I got this product hoping it would improve my computers faint network connection. I tried installing the drivers/utility nonsense for hours. I'm in college so I'm literate in technology and have never been so annoyed in my life.
