Summary: My son is in college to study computer science and I bought him a computer he can use for programming and development work. We set up the PC to dual boot both MS Windows and a Linux variant called Ubuntu. One of the last problems we needed to solve was a wireless network connection.
An inexpensive, simple addition to a LAN only system.

Summary: I purchased this as a simple addition to a desktop without built in WiFi. It works as advertised, an inexpensive, simple addition to a LAN only system. It functions just fine with my AirPort Extreme. It works on both PC and Mac with respective drivers. Setup is easy, I was up and running in no time.
Summary: I have the same problem as many others. Stays connected for about 30 minutes to an hour. I found that uninstalling and reinstalling the driver gets it to work again for another 30 minutes to an hour. That tells me the problem is with the driver.
Summary: I have one of those Dell laptops that has the Broadcom 4313 chip. As such, my wireless would not work. After multiple attempts at getting the Broadcom chip to work, I finally decided to just get a USB adapter. I wanted a small one because the idea was to leave it plugged in all the time.
Summary: Doesn't work. It will connect for a few minutes but after that it will drop the connection. I've never had another wireless adapter do this on any other machine on my network. Completely worthless product and I wish I could have my money back.
Summary: I have 75 Mbps Fios internet with approximately about six wifi devices connected to it.. With an eight dollar purchase of TP-LINK TL-WN725N it received anywhere from 18 to 49 Mbps depending how far my distance was from the Wifi modem.
Summary: Purchased to connect my WD TV Live to my home network in order to transfer video files from my computer to the external hard drive connected to the TV device. No problems setting up. No problems with connection. Files transferred at expected speed. No problems after three yrs of use.
Summary: Asus does have a newer version of this, but it's a lot bigger. I still stick with this little guy because it's so darn tiny, half the time people don't realize that it's plugged in. Fits great in the pocket and it's easy to pack in a travel kit for use.
