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.
Summary: I bought it because of price and I think Cisco certified refurbished product should be ok, but it come with a driver that even can install and after download the lastest version it do work for a while, but fail continuelly after several hours in both xp and win7 RC system, it's a pity that I live outside of State and it's inconvenient to return the item, so, don't buy it.
Summary: I've been using this with my Linksys WRT160N-RM Wireless-N Router for a couple months now. The big problem I have is that every time I reboot my computer, I have to reconfigure the network adapter settings, including entering my network key and password. Each time I do this, my computer names the adapter "Wireless Network 1", "Wireless Network 2", "Wireless Network 3"...
Summary: Wow, I'm taken aback as to how poor this product is, and how poor Linksys tech support is. I had multiple problems with this device. The good news is that when it works, the signal is strong (with a Linksys WRT300N router) and fast (270mbps). However, the PC won't even BOOT with this device plugged in. Once you turn the machine off, the only way to get it to boot is to unplug the WUSB300N.
Gives Linksys a bad name...what a terrible product!

Summary: I've been using wireless network stuff for years and I've always had a preference to Linksys products in the past because they have a tendancy to be compatible with just about any wireless network I have encountered. This card is the exception to the rule. I bought two of them and I was not able to get either of them running reliably using the N standard.
Summary: This is one to avoid. I've tried it on two computers, using it with the companion WRT300N router, and it glitches badly on both computers. The speed is an improvement over Wireless-G, but not much; and the stability is much worse. If anyone in the area turns on a microwave oven, or even if there is other wireless traffic, it goes into instability and has to be reset.
Summary: Unit looks Cool but doesn't work very often. Like the other Linksys products, they suffer from crappy software. I can't use this and use $10.00 Encore USB adapters that work all the time and even work with vista x64 Operating System. I can't get Linksys to even work 32 bit. They should have instruction manuals or good web information to help computer nuts that want to network. Maybe professionals know how to use Linksys.
Summary: Have wasted an entire day trying to get this to work. Linksys technical support is terrible. No solutions. Seems like there are a lot of reported problems with this product. Thought it would be great to have N network but my Netgear g wireless network never caused a problem and was super easy set-up. Linksys is a nightmare.

Summary: This little piece of junk has caused me more headaches than any other piece of networking equipment I've ever owned. It drops its signal at least twice every hour and often completely loses functionality until I restart my computer. Worthless.
