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.

Slow

  • Summary: Very slow internet with this, I just ended up hard wiring our computer through the wall, it was easier, cost about the same, even bought the crimping tool I can use again, and so much faster.

USB by mistake

  • Summary: Misjudged my intentions on using this device. I was going to use it for my wi-fi ready Sony Bravia, but it looks like the Sony only likes its own USB wireless adapter

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.

Works OK, kind of clunky - UPDATE 9/16/13

Nicolas Siemsen, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • 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.

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.

Carl T., Newegg
28 February 2011
  • 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.

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.
