Don't buy, it overrides windows wireless control, seeks to sell software.

Good 'ole Dave, Amazon
11 March 2012
  • 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. Worse, it reprogrammed my wireless system so my other wireless devices sign off without warning and must be reset. Some are simple resets, just an inconvenience.

Terrible Drivers

Josh K., Newegg
3 March 2011
  • 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. The NIC will not even show up after you shut down the PC for a few minutes and reboot. You have to then unplug the adapter and plug it back in to get it to recognize.
  • 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

really really bad & unreliable

Anonymous, Newegg
17 February 2011
  • 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.

Another dud

Darryl M., Newegg
15 February 2011
  • 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.

  • Summary: Maybe just a defective individual unit.
  • Pros: Newegg gave refund
  • 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.

Didn't work well

Frank G., Newegg
23 March 2010
  • Pros: None.
  • 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.

A pain on Win 7 x64

Aziel E., Newegg
14 March 2010
  • Summary: Sorry Linksys, you lost a customer. This is the second device I bought from you that does not support a widely distributed operating system. Get your firmware and driver teams in gear.
  • Pros: It looks cool.
  • Cons: Installation is a pain. x64 drivers from Linksys (from the included CD and the website) do not work. Had to search forums for a workaround. Any time an end user has to ask end users for a workaround, the company has dropped the ball. The solution was to install Vista x64 drivers to make Win 7 recognize the device, but then every time I start my computer from sleep or hibernate, the device is not recognized. I have to unplug and replug the device for my system to recof...

User Review

Dawn G., Newegg
3 February 2010
  • Pros: Hard to say, Win7 x64 would not recognize any driver either from Linksyys or the chipset manufacturer.
  • Cons: Linksys support for Win7 x64 is not there yet. DO NOT believe the Win7 compatibility charts. The drivers do not work!
