Works!

Travis B., Newegg
23 January 2014
  • Summary: Great price, I recommend buying. Only from Newegg though ;)
  • Pros: Never loses connection, just plugged and played. Glad it's 300 and not 150, as it's for a media server.
  • Cons: Green LED is a little annoying. But when are LED's not annoying? Haha.

Beware V4 Chipset

KYLE B., Newegg
17 November 2013
  • Summary: I wish there were some way to know the version and chipset of wireless adapters before purchasing. It's very frustrating and time wasting to expect a certain radio and get junk.
  • Pros: Cheap.
  • Cons: Bought this at another store thinking it was an Atheros chipset. Turns out version 4 switched to a cheap Realtek RTL8192CU chipset. The speed is unacceptably slow 3.94 Mbits/sec on Linux kernel 3.12 measured with iperf. Binary drivers are not a solution for Linux. Look elsewhere and get an adapter with a good radio.
