Excerpt: This little USB gadget is one of the finest inventions for setting up and using computer networks. It couldn't be simpler to use with just any Linksys wireless router. It looks like a thumb drive - very small and compact. It takes up less than a couple of square inches on your desktop. It has no moving parts, so require no maintenance, and no replacement. Just plug it into a USB port and your operating system will usually automatically set up a network for you.
Excerpt: Coming from the old school of long wired networking cable running just about everywhere, it is absolutely mind blowing to be able to not only network without wires, but to do so with such a tiny USB router. The signals are very strong, even in our multi level house. Computers can be moved around without being concerning about dead zones
Excerpt: i own 3 of these and there are no dead zones , data trasfer is high. the only thing is the price which seems kind of high at 65 dollars but worth it. the software is really easy to install and works with vista, windows 7 and xp. if you want an easy way of instead of installing a card in your computer this is for you.
Summary: I tried other Wireless USB adapters, but none work as well or are as easy to set up. This is one of the approved devices for the WDTV-Live and I have two of them. Both of them work flawlessly and since I'm streaming High Definition content over my network, I'm extremely impressed with it's connection speed and throughput. Setup is a breeze and I have never had any problems with them once installed. Great product!
Pros: Easy To Setup, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Summary: Very easy to set up. I have Windows 7 and didn't need to do any workarounds to get it to install. I did however have to reposition my wireless router to a new place in the house because the signal being received was too weak. My Linksys router was one floor below and on the opposite side of the house originally. The connection kept getting dropped. My house is only 20 years old and I don't have especially thick walls.
Summary: I was replacing an old MicroSoft USB Network Adaptor which no longer worked with our new LinkSys router. The setup was easy (CD), but took a couple of tries to get the initial connection. We've only had it a couple of weeks, but it has been realiable and seems to be a lot faster. The PC using it is in a room right about the wireless router - so distance is not an issue. I like the size and look of the adaptor and the USB cradle for the desktop.
Summary: This thing was a real pain to set it up. I loaded the software, plugged it in and it worked, then when I booted, it disapeared. Did the same thing about four times. Might have been the windows 7 64. Don't know, but a real pain!
