Poor Linux support for B2 revision

Anonymous, Newegg
7 November 2012
  • Summary: Probably better Linux support will arrive eventually for the B2 revision, but it might be a while.
  • Pros: It's not like the hardware is horrible...
  • Cons: On Linux if you get the B2 revision of this device it will use an RT5572 chipset, which is not supported (to my knoweldge) by Kernel drivers listed on wireless.kernel.org as of 11/2012.

  • Summary: Believed in my innocence that I would get better signal to my laptop Sony Vaio with Intel WiFi Link 4965AGN if I switched it up. Unfortunately not. The same reception as the little built-in receiver and moreover with better constant signal measured with WirelessMon. For those who do not have a network card ... maybe. For those who want to improve reception - absolutely not. For those who think it's a lot of money for such a simple product - absolutely!

Not reccommended

Scarlette YoHonsolo, FutureShop

  • Summary: This is only good if something has gone wrong with your main wireless router. This is only useful as a back up. I have this and regret purchasing this. I get 20% connection and Constantly get disconnected. Its only 10 feet away from the router passing through only one dry wall. Not recommended as your secondary wireless internet connection.

Useless

Rachid, FutureShop

  • Summary: I should have read the other review before I bough mine. It is not worth it. Same as the other poster, I also get better signal and speed with my Built-in G wireless from a Dell laptop. When I view the wireless connections in my area, the dell shows more connections. BTW, when I am comparing the two I use the same distance. I get 300M only when I am like 10 feet away from the router. What I bought was revA. Hopefully Rev B is better.

  • Excerpt: Очень разочарован в этой модели. Ноунеймовый свисток (на чипе реалтек) уделывает это убожество.
  • Pros: отсутствуют.
  • Cons: Очень низкий уровень сигнала, даже по сравнению со встроенными адаптерами.

Enkelt å sette opp, elendig rekkevidde

Johannes, Komplett.no
15 May 2012
  • Summary: Bestilte denne 13.05.12 og mottok den i posten 15.05.12. Det gikk glatt å installere drivere, og medfølgende programvare gjorde det enkelt å koble meg på mitt trådløse nettverk. Jeg har min stasjonære PC i kjelleren, nesten rett under routeren. Her er det nesten umulig å få dekning til datamaskinen, så denne går rett tilbake til komplett! Må nok borre hull i gulvet uansett, selv om jeg prøvde å unngå det med denne.

  • Summary: Fungerer ikke i Linux, og var derfor ubrukelig for meg som skulle bruke adapteret i Ubuntu 10.04. Fungerer imidlertid smertefritt i Windows 7.
