Works OK Until...

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.

Worked for internet, drops too much to play games

Jesse Rorabaugh, Amazon
29 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this piece of equipment so I could play Starcraft 2 on the Computer in my room which didn't have internet. It worked fine for internet use, but it just isn't sufficient for gaming use. It actually has nothing to do with how fast the connection is. It is a fast connection.

  • Summary: This adapter worked ok for XP. It was pretty finicky but it worked ok when it worked. However, I came here to let everyone know that this adapter is NOT SUPPORTED BY WINDOWS 7 and probably wont be in the near future.

Good.. when its working.

Anonymous "private", Amazon
9 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.

Still won't work well with Vista

M. J Malley, Amazon
5 January 2008
  • Summary: Got this device for Christmas along with a new N router from LinkSys. I experienced hangs and drops in the network connection repeatedly on my HP Vista machine. Linksys Community Forums are full of complaints about this, and while the Linksys Vista download site lists a Vista driver, the link is...

Super Fast (for the 1/2 hour it works before stalling)

Amazon Fan, Amazon
31 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this over a week ago and it has been nothing but trouble. The connection frequently gets dropped requiring the user to reset the card and/or reset the router. I also have the Linksys-N router so it's not an issue of incompatable products.

Vista-64 Support?

David M. Coleman, Amazon
23 July 2007
  • 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.

Not what you would expect

Conrad V, Amazon
30 March 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this product thinking that the newer Wireless-N technology would allow me to have better wireless access to my upstairs computer. Such is not the case. The wireless signal still has issues with distance and wall interference. I have better luck with my Linksys Wireless G network adapter.
