Summary: I have been using this adapter successfully on Ubuntu 8.04 w/NDisWrapper (802.11b/g only) and on Windows Vista 64bit Enterprise (802.11n). The router I am connecting to is an Asus WL500W running DD-WRT in 802.11 n/b/g mixed mode and WPA2-PSK. Although there are several drywalls between the computer and the router I always get >100Mbps which can be considered very reasonable. The connection is stable and reliable.
Pros: - Good reception for a USB adapter, - Comes with useful USB extension cable
Cons: - Software can not install drivers unless the adapter is present at the time of installation.
Summary: I have use this for more then two years now and I have never used a better wireless adapter; its still going strong. No fighting with divers when moving it to new machines. Great great adapter. If I had to criticize I would say the adapter is a little on the large side. I use it for a desktop computer so size doesn't matter that much to me. If using a laptop this may cause some encumbrance issues.
Pros: Easy Setup. Compatible with Windows XP or newer. Very stable. Range is better then any on board WiFi adapters I have used.
Cons: The size of the adapter is big by today's standards.
Summary: This wireless adapter is a piece of garbage. It constantly disconnects, at least a dozen times a day. I RMA'd the first one I got, and the second one does this as well, despite me trying the adapter out on two different computers, on both Vista and 7. Easily the worst computer part I've ever purchased. Avoid it.
Summary: With the new N tech built into this adapter, you will increase your overall speed.
Pros: After searching for hours online and in the store, I finally decided to test the bad boy out and I am glad I did. Wow, what a huge improvement over my older G card. I will be adding these to every PC. This wireless card is faster than most internal network adapters. So if you are looking to increase your speed and dont want to spend a lot on a new PC, then you have to get you one of these. Just boot to system bios by hitting your key in dos on fist post beep. Then all...
Excerpt: After making a visit to a friends house and surfing the internet on his pc, I realized he didn’t have a line running to his PC from his cable modem box! After asking him he told me he used a USB wireless adapter ! No his cable modem box and his computer in his garage are approximately 300 feet away from one another as well!
Summary: Do not buy this, it is terrible. A huge waste of money. I use it simply as a paper weight. It is constantly disconnecting. It spends more time reconnecting than it does connected. When it connects (for 1-3 minutes) it has a terrible speed even though I am close to my router! AVOID THIS PRODUCT.
Summary: This little baby really puts a charge into your wireless setup compared to the 802.11g setup and speed. I am getting speeds six times or more over the max with the g. Have used on four different computers with like improvement. So far everthing I have tried with this adapter has exceeded my expectation.
Pros: Relatively easy setup, improved signal strength, works with xp and vista
