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.
Pros: Worked great right out of the box. Suse 10.0 picked up the WUSB11 when plug into the usb. You will need the Suse 10.0 disk if the drivers wheren't installed. You will also need to modify ect\resolv conf. Add this line "nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" The x's represent you routers dns gateway. If that doesn't work check the internet.
Cons: The speed but for xx bucks on Linux you can't complain.
Summary: This thing is great for the price, and since it's external you can just unplug it and plug it into another computer if you needed wireless access temporaraly without opening the case and pulling the PCI card.
Pros: Works great on an old Windows ME system. For the price you can't beat this if you want to share out your internet access to other computers. I'm running WEP on here with no problem. I'm using it with a newer linksys G/B wireless router/4port switch AP.
Cons: Windows ME got a BSOD when trying to connect with 128bit encryption, but that could be just win ME being it's usual self. I rebooted and used 64bit without hiccup.
