Excerpt: I bought this for my desktop and have a wireless router for my home network. My connection seems to drop in the middle of my internet sessions, even though i'm in the same room as my router. There seems to be problems with communication from my adapter to my router. When it quits and I can't get on the net, i have to power off/on (3-4 times daily). I've called the linksys tech support but haven't found much help there.
Pros: external and no need to invade your pc tower
Summary: I bought this adapter to create a wireless TIVO network. After plugging the adapter to the back of the series 2 Tivo recorder and downloading the desktop, I had an instant wireless network. It was set up in minutes and has operated flawlessly.
Summary: This is a great wireless USB adapter at a great price however it is the version 4 which is not as good as the previous version. The changes make little (or no) difference to PC users running Windows, but for those running Linux, or someone that wants to hook it up to their Tivo you will be disapointed to learn that it dosen't work. Previous version of the Linksys WUSB111 did work with these system, buyt not Ver. 4.
Excerpt: installation was easy. tech support wasn't too helpful on a question i had regarding accessing wireless points. i think she just didn't know the answer and couldn't say "i don't know". having some errors on startup, but device works fine. i imagine i just need to reinstall the software. interface is simple and obvious to use. unlike a PCMCIA card, you can't just leave it attached to your notebook. i bought it for my notebook when the PCMCIA slot bonked on me.
Right ITEM Wrong Version. Bad Support from Amazon.

Summary: I purchased the WUSB11 without any notification from Amazon on what VERSION it was, Needed v2.6 to work with my TIVO, AND Amazon advertized that this would work with TIVO. THEY shipped me v4.0 and WOULD NOT even talk with me about exchanging it, said it was my fault for ordering the wrong ITEM, EVEN though it was the right item and THEY did not allow for input of WHAT VERSION I NEEDED and THEY ADVERTIZED it worked with TIVO.
Summary: Just wanted to inform everyone that this product doesn't work with Tivo for a broadband connection. Use the NetGear WG111. It works great. Just wanted to prevent someone else from buying a product that isn't compatable with TIVO.
