Summary: This is plug & play with Windows 8.1. I plugged it in and within seconds it came up as "WiFi 2". The reason that I bought it was to access a wifi hot spot at my aunts house.

High Quality device that has functioned flawlessly

Summary: One-here, is a retired Electrical Engineer. The application that this unit is used in, was it is located inside a Motor Home, installed using the Supplied Suction Cup Mount, to the inside of an RV Window.
Summary: I use this primarily as a TCP/IP learning aid using Kali Linux / Backtrack (Linux operating systems, for those uninitiated), and I could not be happier. Not only does this adapter have extended range, but it also speeds up my connections and download speeds.
Summary: This initially worked great for my purposes. I am using it to connect from my office computer to my home router which is about 100' away. Everything worked as I had hoped for about 3 months. I had nearly a full signal and speeds were good.

Summary: I have been dragging my feet on buying this for about a year. I finally did. This wireless card works great! In fact, I live 1 city block from my office and I can actually hit my AP at the office from home. Not the most reliable connection at that distance, but It can be done.

12 October 2014
Summary: This product is useless. Setup was impossible. There is no correlation between the setup instructions and the setup screens. I spent hours without ever getting it connected. Believing that I must be at fault I brought in a professional. They spent hours and had exactly the same experience.
Summary: This adapter is the one that will actually for-real run at +33dBm (2,000 milliwatts) out of the box. It runs perfectly under Kali Linux 1.09 (note: use the -C option when running wash with this adapter), and as a wifi adapter under Windows 7 and 8.1 64 bit.
