Summary: I purchase this adapter to use it with WD TV Live HD Media Player (part #WDBAAx0000NBK). It is listed as a compatible device on WD ([...]) under version 1.10. The one that I receive from Amazon seems to have "H/W Version: B1" and it is not recognized by the WD TV Live. Quite a bit disappointed that I paid $20 for nothing. Amazon wants $8.xx to ship it back for the return. No, thank you.
Summary: Everything good is like stated in other reviews. I still cannot make it work in Windows 7 64-bit. Only driver to get it even display nearby avaiable SSID is WindowsXP 64-bit driver on the CD, with this driver it can connect to wireless network with no encryption only. At the end, I had no choice but to use it with a WindowsXP 32-bit computer. Very frustrating experience.
Summary: Well, I am not real sure of this yet, I have only had it for a day now, but I have had to reconnect more than 6 times. So this may be going back to Amazon and I just might hardwire an Ethernet cable to the location, I hate to do that cause it is HOT in the attics here in AZ but that is the only way to run my cables if I choose that route. I will give this another day or two to see if it will work it self out.
Summary: Contrary to my beliefs, this wont work right out of the box with Linux, and getting it to work won't be that easy. The product itself still works great once the drivers are all set up, and using it is to work in Windows 7 is easy as pie (just plug it in.
Summary: Has problems staying connected to the internet when doing things that require high bandwidth. I have noticed this when Trying to watch a video on youtube and downloading something it will crash. Otherwise It is good for its cheap price, size and portability if you need a wireless connection right away.
Summary: After 'sleep' or ' hibernate' modes, it connects to internet 30percent of the time.. Even with the utility software upgrades. Maybe it is my computer as it is AMD motherboard chip(which I bought it from ncix). Haven't tried on Intel chips or notebooks. Probably have better results than I do.
Pros: Plug and reads wifi signals
Cons: does not work well after 'sleep' and hibernate' mode
