Excerpt: The Staples store associate recommended this particular brand and this particular model for wireless internet access. In my case, the router was two floors away from the computer that I wanted to connect, so good range and reliable connectivity were extremely important. This USB adaptor did the job very satisfactorily, such that I bought an additional one (same model) to connect wirelessly at my daughter's house.
Excerpt: This product Is wonderful and works great that is why I purchased another one. Only one problem, it will not work with my operating system. I did not realize that it needed to be windows operating system. I would recommend this product for someone that needs WiFi in a USB.
Summary: Well it was an easy setup. Once the Modem/Router combo that I bought at Walmart was ready, I installed the Net Gear N600 adapter very quickly. Its been one week, so far so good. I can't say how it will work in a month, year etc, but should be ok, OR I will return it to Walmart. I always shop Walmart, they seem to have everything I need, want at a good price, either in the Store or on Line.
Summary: When you are using a number of tech gadgets together, its difficult to rate individual products unless you are very tech savvy. We used this device to replace our Ethernet connection and it has worked great. We were able to move our desktop CPU to a more convenient location and we're better able to stream movies through our big screen. We wish we had bought this sooner.
