Summary: This small size USB wireless adapter works VERY WELL! Unfortunately, I was hoping that it would work with the Xbox 360, so I would not have to buy the proprietary one from Xbox, but alas, it would not work.
works great with xp (5 stars); Does not work with Vista (0 stars)

Summary: Works perfectly on XP desktop, no problems with installation or anything. Tried to use on Vista and had tons of problems. Tried to install 6 different ways, uninstalling each time. It would recognize the device and ask for a driver. Pointed it to install disk; "no driver found".
Summary: I had this adapter for 2 years and never had any problems with it. It could pick up a signal 2 houses down from mine. It is very powerful. The adapter ended up getting wet to many times and fried.
Summary: I purchaed the Linksys adapter because I was one of many people fooled by Netgear's completely useless piece of junk and needed to replace it. The Linksys adapter surpassed my expectations. Not only does it get me online immediately, it also solved a problem for me.
Summary: I got this because on vacation in Maine I don't have a high speed internet connection, and wanted stronger signals from non-secure wireless sites. With the booster, the signal still reads "poor", but I seem to have rapid access without any constraints.
