Summary: I returned this so quick it wasn't even funny. Read reviews about it constantly losing connection and that's exactly what happened. For someone who was a huge fan of Linksys products, I hope they get better.
Summary: I bought this to work with my d-link wireless router and it's been such a pain in the neck to use I ended up just running a cable. this is an older product but i had to at least throw my one star at it. Avoid it completely.
Don't buy, it overrides windows wireless control, seeks to sell software.

Summary: I bought this to replaced my b/g low-speed dongle for my new N wireless router. This dongle's software replaced my windows wireless router software. It routenely signs off of my N wireless (same manufacturer) for no reason and must be reset.
Summary: I do not think it is the hardware so much as it is TERRIBLE driver support. The last update to this driver was 3/24/10, despite many many forum posts from disgruntled customers such as myself, complaining about this not holding a connection. I have tried 2 different routers and the same effect.
Pros: It plugs in and works with Windows 7 64-bit
Cons: - Does not stay connected after reboot (must unplug and plug it back it for Windows to recognize it) - Intermittently slows to a crawl - bandwidth wise. Requires resetting the network adapter - Very troublesome when playing online games
Summary: This think is either total junk, or else it just does not work well with WIN7. I have downloaded the lastest supposedly working drivers, but it does not help. Avoid this dog like the plague. Worse piece of computer gear I have bought in 20 years,. I started buying and building computers in 1983.
Pros: looks nice
Cons: Constantly quits working. I have to unplug it and then plug it back in to get it to work. Then, after a while, it does it again. AS soon as my downloads drop to a snails pace, I know I have to do it again.
Summary: This device was designed to be operated in VISTA. Version 2 of this device doesn't seem to work with windows 7 - 64 bit. I'm going to try tech support again.
Pros: Not sure, it won't work.
Cons: I'm running windows 7-64 bit. I ran the CD, system crashes. I let windows discover it and load the driver. Driver doesn't work. Yes, the windows7-64 bit driver from their website. Called Tech support. Still no help.
Horrible - after 4 hours with customer service still did not work

Summary: I have been dealing with WIFI for years. Have set up office and home wireless with little or no trouble. I have always used Linksys routers. I have four presently running. Three are the older model wireless-G and one wired model.
Cons: Never could get it to work. Went to Linksys website support and followed all advice, downloaded latest driver and installed driver in Windows 7 64 bit, OS recognized it, but still no connection. The adapter was enabled.
Cons: It had less signal strength than the internal adapter of the laptop I installed it in. It would drop connections frequently. I had hoped that the higher speed would improve the performance, but, instead it degraded. I returned it.
