Summary: Plugged it in to my laptopand after a fairly simple program installation it has greatly improved my signal strength from my wireless router. The nice part is that it is adptable to a wide variety of routers.
Summary: I needed a wireless remote to work on the 4th floor of my townhome. The challenge...the router is on the 3rd floor underneath. I was very skeptical that for the price this would actually work but surprise after downloading the necessary drivers from netgear online, making changes to my channels on the router it's works just great. Just as a note the CD supplied has outdated drivers and will not recognize the Netgear USB.
Summary: It works. Win 7, no issues, 2 minute install. 5 stars. For anyone curious, the USB extension cable is 3 feet long. Unlike some of the older reviews state, this is the WN111v2 model, not v1. Like any peripheral, I'd recommend ignoring the install cd and downloading the newest drivers straight from the netgear website, tho I expect this would have worked Plug n Play, perhaps without some of the features that most people will never use.
