Summary: Doesn't work well with all computers or routers. Worked great on my Dell Studio laptop from 2009, but was horribly unreliable on my son's Dell Latitude from 2006. Now we have a similarly priced NetGear adapter on the same laptop and that one works great.
Summary: I had to do some engineering on the metal part of the usb connector in order to just plug it in but that was because the vendor sent me the usb adapter without the protective piece for the connector. Other than that works great with linux.
Summary: *** zero star like the other customer suggested *** rarely used and it is dead already. it won't do 150mb/s. more like 75 is the best this can do. it overheats too quickly if transfer large amount of data or stream a video and i think the the heat slowly kills this piece of junk.
Summary: *** ZERO STAR *** Where do I start? I have never come across any piece of PC hardwares that died so quickly. The QNAP TS-212 detected it right away and connected just fine with WPA2 key, for a minute or so, then refused to connect again, ever. Tried it on 2 other PCs with identical result.
Summary: Despite its size, it holds a connection well UNTIL you try to copy large files over the network than there's no internet. Usually, this is an issue that can be solved with a driver update but none has been made and I've found none that solve the problem.
Summary: PROS: This is a quite acceptable wireless-G adapter. It has a nice compact size and compact price. The driver installed easily on both my iMac with OS X 10.6.3 and my PC with Windows 7. CONS: This is NOT a good wireless-N adapter.
Fine for Windows7 - Not functional under Ubuntu 10.4

Summary: I'm gearing up to learn Linux. So I built myself a dual-boot Windows7 and Ubuntu 10.4 system. This wireless adapter works fine under Windows7 (after installing the drivers from the CD), but isn't even seen in the Linux environment. Nor did major Ubuntu updates change that.
Excerpt: Excellent for browsing pages and light video use. Extremely extremely tiny. Worked effectively win Widows 7 64-bit promptly. I wouldnt game on this at all. The150Mbps is a stretch with me maxing at 48Mbps no matter how I change up settings.
Excerpt: Tiny, sensitive, price tag Doesn't play nicely with other folks, size tends to make it uncomplicated to lose I reside in an apartment complex where the wireless signal is openly shared. The moment somebody else logs on the signal becomes very spotty and begins dropping.
