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: Looks Great +1 Star Works Great +1 Star No Dropped Connections +1 Star Great without installing crap software +1 Star Broke after falling 2ft onto soft carpet -5 Stars Amazon Shipping me a new one, Priceless (+5 Stars) You know when you buy something and connected it to your computer and it ask you to install software. Then you have 10+ programs in your system tray running during start-up and whether you're using them or not it takes up resources.
Summary: Item arrived very quickly. Hooked it up and had to download the latest driver before it would work (the only reason it did not get five stars). I use this wireless connection in the F.R.O.G. . It works great and has very good signal strength. I find Amazon to be a great place to shop for GREAT deals.
Summary: This is great for anyone who needs thier signal boosted, or dosnt have an internal Wifi adapter. I really love the meter long external USB stand. I work in a large condominium building and picking up wifi can be tricky in my location. Ever since buying this product, I have mobility with the extension stand. It definatly boosts my signal and has great connectivity. Lets face it: Not all laptops have the best internal Wifi. (even mine).
Summary: I had a lot of problems getting my wireless network to work. The fault was mine rather than the product. However, the support provided by Linksys was available any time I needed help and the various people assisting me the numerous times I called provided EXCELENT assistance. I would recommend a Linksys product just for the support they provide.
Summary: This is a good product if you can get it to work... 1) good luck finding the drivers, I had to look on forums and finally found one that would work on the non-US site. Once it's working though it does work! :D The USB cables that it ships with are nice. You can either a) connect direct to computer USB port b) use short 6 inch USB cable c) use long 4 foot (?) weighted desk standing USB base.
Summary: I bought this for an old Desktop PC that has been used as a standalone for almost three years. As indicated in the description/price this is a refurbished adapter. The hardware itself looks brand new, with original packaging in pristine condition. I gave the product 4 stars because I had software issues. The adapter monitor software kept giving error messages and shutting down, never staying up long enough to find the wireless network.
Adapter is great, but the included software network monitor can really suck

Summary: Here's my story: i bought it on ebay for $60. To save money on monthly bills, my neighbors and i planned to share their DSL router/line. When it came in the mail, my neighbors weren't home, but I went ahead and installed the program (says "install before plugging it in") and plugged it in. After about 30 seconds, it showed me a beautiful list of 10 live wireless networks in the building.
Summary: This item works as advertised! I use one in the Garage Desktop and one in my Lap Top that already had built in Wireless "G" spec. I wanted faster through put for the Web and D/L items faster and the Linksys system works great!
