Works OK Until...

JH "JH", Amazon
4 August 2012
  • Summary: This unit is great when all you're doing is browsing the web. Haven't had any issues with that. But when you start downloading a large file, or gaming it cuts out intermittently. The only way to fix is unplug it and replug it in.

Good.. when its working.

Anonymous "private", Amazon
8 August 2009
  • Summary: The Good - Extension cord comes with it so you can position device for best reception possible. Ive seen pretty high transfer speeds. the bad - overheats/overloads quite easily. If you run a torrent program for instance and get too many connections.. it just overloads and loses connection.

Vista-64 Support?

David M. Coleman, Amazon
16 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought the WUSB300N for an XP-32-bit notebook but first decided to test it on my Vista-64-bit desktop, but I couldn't locate a driver, either included or at Linksys site. This irritated me because I didn't see any 64-bit restrictions listed on the box or marketing material from Linksys.

Messes up sound

Anonymous, Newegg
27 June 2008
  • Pros: Super Super Fast. Easy to setup and config... like other Linksys stuff.
  • Cons: Makes my sound skip. I have a Asus p5n32e sly mobo. I use the integrated sound. Totally kills my music. Unless I find a fix, I'll have to go back to my G wireless.

unstable

Anonymous, Newegg
2 June 2008
  • Summary: I spent several hours with tech support at linksys changed every setting nothing seemed to clear the problem. I purchased 2 of these and i am holding off on selling or returning them in hopes that a driver will fix the issues
  • Pros: Fast connection, good range, easy to install
  • Cons: randomly freezes, or looses connection when a large number of connections are made, or a large amount of data. Streaming video wirelessly from one computer to one that is wired is impossible.

Did not work

Marie M., Newegg
24 April 2008
  • Summary: Anything that Linksys has made for b/g wireless routing seems to work really well but I also used to own a Linksys Wireless N Draft Router and that router would constantly, about every hour or so, need to be reset.
  • Pros: When it works, it connects far away from my wireless N draft router and gets a very good connection.
  • Cons: Drops the signal constantly. Only way to fix this is to disable the wireless connection and re-enable it again. It drops the connection about every 10 to 20 minutes. I am returning mine and am going to get a USB wireless N adapter from a different company because I know others work, just this one...
