Summary: This is by far the best usb wireless adapter I've come across. My router is in the basement and I was never able to use the 5ghz band one floor up until now. I can stream full 1080p movies with no trouble at all. I can even mount and watch 30-40gb 3D ISO file located on my NAS server as if it were a local file. My only complaint is the USB Y cable is not included. I have not tried using it in access point mode so I can't comment on that but it's a handy feature to have.
Summary: I am very pleased with this network adapter. I live in a particularly strangely designed house (former owner was an architect) which results in a lot of sprawled out wings and odd nooks and crannies. This makes wireless tricky, but not with this adapter.

I am currently living in an apartment complex that has many, many networks (a quick scan can come up with 25-30+ networks some days).
Summary: Very good wireless adapter for windows, don't use it with linux. Easy to install and easy to use, but linux has trouble recognizing and installing the drivers, but if you are only using windows or mac, you will be fine, best adapter on the market.
Summary: ASUS Dual-Band Wireless-N900 USB Network Adapter (USB-N66) I used to see that TV ad that said, "If it is not a Toyota, then it is not a car". A little bit exaggerating but the same is true of ASUS products. I bought this ASUS Dual-band Wireless-N900 USB Network Adapter for my son's Apple MAC computer because his room is about 100 feet away from the router, and after downloading the driver for MAC OS from ASUS web site, installed and rebooted the machine, and this...
