Summary: This product really works. I am currently living on a college campus and have the worst internet connection I have ever seen. At times, I was lucky if my laptop could get one or two bars for one minute due to the constant drop off of the internet signal.
Expected it to be a piece of junk... man, was I wrong!

Summary: Let me start off by saying that I had really wanted a Medialink adapter, since it had more than a thousand reviews and they were all positive. BUT, I had already ordered a Medialink router, and I wasn't able to add the USB onto the order in time (amazon would have charged me extra for the shipping).
Don't know about "long range" but it gets me there.

Summary: Adapter installed as quick and dirty replacement for Belkin 54g that had far outlived its' usefulness with a Dell dimension 2300 32-bit, 2gb RAM operating under XP home SP3 with broadband cable ISP at 10/100Mbps Ethernet network and WPS security.
Summary: Installed the software on WinXP, SP3 laptop. First install did not install drivers. Had to remove partial software installation and perform a reinstall. Second time worked. Connect speed is definitely faster than what it was using the internal wlan mini-card which connected with g.
Summary: I didn't know what I was missing until I installed this adapter. Doubled the speed on my Mac mini and HP Notebook. Get 7 bars instead of three! Install is easy zipfile, took 5 mins. Can't wait till I get rid of my 2Wire Gateway and replace it with a real wireless router/modem.
Summary: The good news and the bad news... good news - this thing is fast.. it increased my download times probably 3 fold. the bad - It took me five hours to get this s.o.b. to work. The documentation is terrible. I finally had the sense to look at my wifes mac and check her settings and copied those.
Summary: I needed a stronger wifi signal at the far end of my house so I could use my laptop. This device did the trick and I am very happy with it. It connected easily, is small, compact and I can't wait to try it out when I am traveling. Very happy with the price.
