Not as easy as advertised

regular user, Amazon
19 January 2015
  • 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.

RaLink chip

Julian D., Newegg
4 October 2012
  • Pros: Works easily for Windows. Cheap.
  • 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.

  • 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.

works good, but poor design

Renie, Amazon
24 January 2011
  • 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...

Did not work with WD Live TV

Andrew J., Newegg
7 June 2010
  • Pros: Appeared to work for other applications, just not the one I bought it for
  • Cons: My fully updated WD Live TV did not recognize this card. I thought it would work based on WD's article that lists the DWA-125 as compatible, but apparently it is a different version.

No Longer Works with WD Live TV

Phil Meek, Amazon
29 May 2010
  • Summary: I know I should have read more carefully, but the version that is shipping from Amazon right now does NOT work with the WD Live TV device. The version listed on WD's site says it has to be the 1.0 firmware, but Amazon is currently shipping the 1.30 firmware.

works well for price, but...

Josh W., Newegg
5 May 2010
  • Summary: I've looked at the other reviews for this thing and apparently not many people have the same problems that I have. I even heard one person say they play COD4 without any noticeable lag or shottiness. This makes me want to cry.
  • Pros: 1) very affordable 2) set-up is very simple and does not require a lot of know-how or troubleshooting. takes about 3-5 minutes total 3) compact USB port so you don't have to waste a PCI 4) download speeds are decent compared to a wired connection through the same router 5)works with Windows 7 6)d...
  • Cons: 1) this buddy is very finicky. It will disconnect itself from the router, without warning, frequently throughout the day. I constantly have to refresh and reconnect the connection. This may not be a problem for some, but since I stream a lot of movies online, it has gotten very annoying 2) upload...

Had some issues

Guy H., Newegg
31 March 2010
  • Summary: It's now being used in my other PC with Vista. No issues there.
  • Pros: Good speed. My PC is 30ft from the router, and I was almost maxing my connection.
  • Cons: Had some Windows 7 64bit issues. The computer would take 10 minutes to turn off with it plugged in. Removing it would make the computer turn off just fine.

Had trouble installing

Francine Price, Amazon
25 January 2010
  • Summary: I had to call tech support to install. They were really patient. I had just installed a new router and had less trouble with that then this adapter. I am happy with the speed and so far it seems reliable.

User Review

yahard, hotline.ua
31 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Для этой модели есть 4-е аппаратные версии. У меня последняя 4.0 вер:D1A
  • Pros: Работает.
  • Cons: Хрупкий и скрипучий корпус. Слабая антенна. Надо "ловить" зону уверенного приема. Рекомендую сразу прикупить длинный USB удлинитель.
