Summary: Bought for my parents as I believed it would be "Easy" to install as per the item title and description. From reading other reviews, I envisioned plug and play using Windows to manage the driver install and wireless configuration.
Would be a great product if I could actually use it.

Summary: i bought this in hopes to make my desktop wifi capable, but what is unclear is that this only works with a D-link router! It now just sits in a droor. It can pick up plenty of signals, but they have to be a match to this brand. Would recommend to D-link users.
Summary: This item has been sort of ho-hum for me. The adapter is larger than you'd hope, first of all. The cap that covers the USB male end of the adapter does not fit over the other end while in use, so while using it you have a loose cap you need to do something with while not losing it.
Cons: Does not work out of the box with ubuntu. Is not dual band. You have to jump through rings of fire to get it to work..... I hate that and wish I looked before I bought this one. That is my fault. Should have bought one with a RealTek chip. Prob would have been even cheaper too.
Summary: Phenom II X3 740 4th core unlocked OC @ 3.5 Pair of Radeon 4830s OC @ 710/980 both 4 gigs of 1333 DDR 3 Gskill (stay away, supposed to be 1600) Thermaltake Black Widow cpu cooler Antec 300 case MSI 870-G45 mb
Pros: Does N, kinda.
Cons: Drops off a lot. It is only 30' and 2 walls away from the router but the signal strength is mediocre. This is a 2X4 and drywall house.
Summary: I purchased this because Kingston is a well known brand, and the price was right. I've had it a few days, and so far it works well (as expected), but it's design is terrible! First of all, the device is too wide, so it does not fit alongside another usb drive, if the usb ports on the computer are...
