Summary: I received this item in the mail a record 1 day after ordering it! I installed it on a MacPro tower with no AirPort card running OS X 10.5.2. The installation was simple enough, considering there were absolutely no instructions included for the Mac drivers. Just had to play around with the Network Settings a bit. Was up and running in about 5 minutes. Since I'm using a free wi-fi network, the connection can be a little unreliable.
Summary: Bought this adapter for my old G5 Tower running OS 10.4. Shipping from PCBay was fast, arrived in 2 days. Installation and setup took minutes -- just plug the device in, run a quick install from the CD, and it works. The signal strength and connection speed are superb as well. Compared to similar adapters, this one appears to be the best choice for the money.
Summary: Product review of Edimax EW-7718Un - Network adapter - Hi-Speed USB - 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n (draft 2.0). The manufacturer is Edimax and the model is EW-7718Un.

Summary: It does what it says. It was designed for Windows but it also comes with Mac drivers that work perfectly. If, like me, you're looking for an alternative way to get wireless on your Mac this product is for you.
Summary: I bought this to add wireless N to my Mac mini. Good call. Much faster than the Wireless G which comes with the mini. It connects at 130 Mbps, I know wireless N can get 300 but 130 sure beats 54 with need to crack the case! I got it on eBay for 33 bucks including the shipping. You need cheap faster wireless connection for your Mini? This will do the trick. Much better than the standard wireless G. I have been using for 3 weeks & have had no issues.
