  • 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. It does so every 1-5 minutes now and I have to turn my wifi on the computer off and on again to get another five minutes of use. After extensive searching I only have probable solutions.

  • Summary: I purchased this to replace my older technology wifi adaptor for my MAC. However while easy to install, its speeds were significantly less then my existing adaptor. Very Disappointed.

  • 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. Error indicates that windows cannot initialize the drivers. From what I can see, all users using this device and Windows 8 have the same issue. No support from ASUS.
  • 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. Since I was doing the testing in the same room as the router, I figured, worst case, I might see a drop  to around 40-50 mbps once the N13 was moved to its eventual home. Ohh was I in for a shock!
  • 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.
