Drops network

An anonymous customer, Walmart
12 February 2016
  • Summary: Drops network every 3-5 mins. Worst network adapter ever. And if U can, use PCI-E adapters, don't buy USB dongles.

May not work with WinXP

charlesplatt, B&H Photo
23 August 2015
  • Excerpt: Followed the installation instructions precisely. Every time I plugged the adapter into a USB port, the computer froze and had to be powered down. Yes, I have an obsolete operating system (WinXP) but so do millions of other people. I disabled my antivirus software before attempting installation.

Look elsewhere, the Asus quality seal was overlooked on this one

Metal Hax, Amazon
3 August 2014
  • Summary: Crappy Product, after hours figuring out to install it on Win 7 64bit without CD, turns out the utility in the website is made for Vista and installs on Windows 7 giving a Code 37 Error.. Anyhoo, I tried using the adapter, extremely slow speeds and low coverage, basically unusable.

Linux support? I think not.

  • Summary: I bought this with the expectation of plugging it in and it working out of the box on my machine running Linux Mint 16. At first all seemed well and good. However five minutes later it dropped connection.

Frst Asus product we had that didn't work.

bonefishing, Walmart
24 August 2013
  • Summary: Asus as a rule is more than very good. This was one of the 1% that was flawed, according to Asus Support. We returned it, but will order another shortly.

  • Summary: So I upgraded my os to Win8, installed the drivers and plug dongle in and nothing. I then uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled with the ASUS utility/driver and still nothing. No blinking lights on the dongle. Win8 doesn't see it except in Device manager.
  • Pros: -Great when it was working
  • Cons: -Windows 7 does not automatically recognize and install drivers, -Doesn't work with Windows 8

  • Summary: This thing is garbage. I was initially impressed with it--$20 and I was getting roughly 80mbps over wireless. Sure, my laptop was faster, but 80mbps would be more than sufficient for streaming video to my living room.
  • Pros: -Plug and play in Windows 8, -Transfers almost as fast as the cheapo Athero chip in my 3 year old laptop--when the N13 is literally 2 feet from the router, and the laptop is 30 feet away.
  • Cons: -Appalling transmission speed at anything beyond about 20 feet., -Blocks adjacent USB ports., -Required driver installation on Win 7 and below., -Drops connection since it hovers around 2 bars at ranges where my laptop sees 4 or 5. After dropping, it generally takes a replug to be able to reconnect.
