Summary: I bought this thing back in '08 and it is still going strong. I have since upgraded to AC level wifi hardware but I use this adapter every now and then, especially when I decide to take my computer (desktop) out to a friends house for gaming.
Summary: This thing has so many driver problems. Constantly Windows 7 would want to update this and if it did it would make it stop working. What a hassle to fix it and I made that mistake more than once.
Summary: I got this for only $20 refurbished so its AMAZING for the price. Ive had it for about a year and a half and the only problem i had is when windows 7 first came out, they didnt have drivers. They do now so it works fine with windows 7 64 bit. I dont even use the linksys software it came with, i just use it with windows and got the drivers online. It connects all the way accross my house with full bars! i love it.
Summary: I am competely happy with this purchase. It took less than 10 minutes to get the software downloaded and the adapter up and running. I haven't had a problem with this product or any other prodcut from Cisco. I currently use a Cisco phone system and netwrok router for work, and chose to purchase Cisco products for my home as well. Great investment!
Summary: My biggest complaint is how hot it gets if left on for a long time (over 24 hrs) and it locks up then so I have to unplug it let it set for 5 min and plug it back in...it does not happen all the time but it is at least once a week. One computer is turned off on a regular basis after usage and I never have this problem on it. I have 3 of these and for the most part you cant beat the price for what you get. It took 6 working days to get it to my door step.
Summary: I ordered this adaptor to replace a wireless G adaptor that I've had for a few years. I also purchased a new Linksys wireless N router. After several hours on the phone with Linksys I got it working, but discovered that it was actually slower than the wireless G router I currently have. Tech support couldn't figure out any way to get it performing better so I returned it and I'm sticking with the G for now.
Prevented PC from booting, but maybe the PC is the one to blame?

Summary: I installed this on my elderly father's HP Pavilion a1600n (AMD) PC. The installation went smoothly. However, I've learned to reboot the PC before leaving the scene, and it seemed like it didn't want to boot. It would hang right on the initial black screen with hardware & BIOS information (before Windows XP even loaded). If I unplugged the Linksys, the PC would continue merrily along.
