Summary: Below are a few things that may fix your problem. This will be long and detailed so bear with me 1.Make sure that the software that comes with this adapter is updated.

Pros: Wireless Adapter worked great for a few months internet connection was solid and dependable. I had some problems with it but below I will describe how I solved it.
Cons: started to experience a lot of problems with the adapter that other people had like connection dropping every 5-10 minutes and having to unplug and plug the USB adapter back in order to get it connect again. This has been happening everyday for a few weeks now. In the Other Thoughts section I wil...
Excerpt: Well i saw that this was a six hundred and figured if my laptop was pushing around one fifty that this would let me reach a lot further than my own computer. Well i did reach about as far as the next room.
Summary: I just got the adapter and they want me to rate it. I will rate it at a 3 star being an average rating. Unfortunately, I will not be able to rate it later since I won't get this window up again. Therefore, I will not recommend this device because I don't know how long this device will last.
Summary: I have owned this product for about a year and a half to two years now. It finally just recently died on me. I used this device solely on my computer and it has lasted me a lot longer than I had previously expected.
Summary: Worked great ( 5 starts) for one year then went bad (down rating). Dropping connections and signal light goes on/off on the adapter. The Cisco router from Cox has not been changed. Is the expected life for USB wireless adapter one year? For the price, I expected it to last longer.
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.
Summary: The product stated that it was easily integrated into a home network to eliminate dead spots. That may be true, but since the device failed to link with my WIFI router after repeated attempts, I am returning the product to Amazon.

Summary: I am running Windows 7 and when in a skype video call the wifi adapter completely crashes. In the Windows event viewer it reports "Error 11, Disk: The driver detected a controller error on \device\Harddisk4\DR4" and the adapter only starts working again upon restarting the computer.
