wireless adapter

  • Excerpt: I got this to incorporate a Linux unit into my windows based home network. Admittedly, I'm not a competent Linux person, but, I had hoped this adapter would work somewhat seamlessly...but, it hasn't. That's probably at least as much my fault as the adapters due to my ignorance.

good for the price

JOSE O VERGEZ, Amazon

  • Summary: works good, but it is not true wireless N, because it doesn't pick up the 5 GHz frequency band, only the regular 2.4 GHz, so the range is not that good, and since it doesn't pick up the 5 GHz A/N band, the connection is pretty slow.

Works ok

  • Summary: Its great when your wireless card inside your laptop breaks, I gave it 3 stars cause every time it boots up, it has to find the wireless adapter.

Your Mileage May Vary

  • 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.

My first one was great this one came bent

  • 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: Maybe if your good at linux then it's easy but this thing has been impossible to install on a Raspberry Pi despite checking the FAQ pages and other resources.

tiny

  • Excerpt: This thing is tiny. Works perfectly on Windows. Takes a lot of configuring to get it to work on Linux, I haven't been able to get it running on Ubuntu which is my distro of choice : ( Sadly that's why I bought it. Funny that it worked out of the box with wheezy on a Rasberry Pi. Gonna try it again next week when I upgrade to 12.10. For the price it's not bad and when you get it working, it's quite speedy.
  • Pros: Decent Speed
  • Cons: A Little Work In Ubuntu, Easy To Set Up On Windows

  • 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. asus makes excellent motherboard and video cards. just stay away from everything else.
  • Pros: small that's all
  • Cons: connection problems, heat, broken software

  • 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. Drivers installed fine on XP & W7 and was showing working fine in Device Manager, but won't connect to the router no matter what. Cheap on quality.
  • Pros: Cheap, Small
  • Cons: Not working at all

Fine for Windows7 - Not functional under Ubuntu 10.4

J. D. Morris, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • 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. Nor did googling or forum hopping turn up a solution. The box and instructions CLEARLY state support for Linux.
