  • Summary: I'm sick of Windows so I've switched to Linux. Too bad this wireless adapter has zero drivers for Linux. It works just fine in Windows and does maintain a better connection and throughput than the single band WiFi adapter I replaced with it. I just wish the manufacturer didn't have their head in sand by assuming the only OS in the world is Windows. I'll never buy this brand again.

It works

  • Excerpt: Had to buy this in order to use our new router with my laptop. It seems to get the job done, however it uses up one of the two ports, my other port is used for a laptop fan, so if I have anything that needs one of the ports I either have to be without internet or have my laptop over heat.

Works ok, better with distance

  • Excerpt: When I first plugged this in, and let me say the set up was extremely easy so that's a major plus, but my signal was moderate at best. Because I'm picking up wifi from my neighbor up the hill, I have to sit by my window closest to their house. I've since gotten a longer USB cord and ran the adapter out the window and hooked it as far up my outside wall as I can reach. I now have 4 bars and great reception (although I still have to sit in this same spot by the window).

Not the best connection

  • Excerpt: Not the best wireless adapter but will work if not needed very often. The adapter keeps losing the connection to my router, when my other wireless products do not. It was cheap enough but maybe should have bought a better one that has better range but not sure that is the problem. Not sure what other products are out there to make my desktop wireless, I just picked the middle range in price. All in all I will keep it since I don't use the desktop as much as my laptop.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast
  • Cons: Unreliable connection

  • Excerpt: In general it is good but once in a while it stops working, usually when the computer has a hiccup (windows 8). When that happens, I have to unplug from USB and plug back in and it works.

  • Excerpt: When the conputer goes to sleep it loses the connection and will even freeze the computer. It needs to be disconnected, wait a minute then reconnect to regain Internet connection. Trying to use the Netowkking software will only freeze the computer.
