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.
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...
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.
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...
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.
