Excerpt: This device is great if your laptop’s built in antennae are not very good with range. The NETGEAR RangeMax WPN111 is a great signal booster that plugs into your laptop or desktop computer via USB.
Summary: This works okay for a first network wireless connection. Works good for both desktops and laptop computers. I have been a Netgear fan from the start and in a pinch this works well. You won't be sorry.
Summary: I got the Netgear WPN111 RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter on time as promised. I have no problem so far so it works just what I paid for. I could not say if it's fast but I paid very cheap for it so I can complain much. It works, what can I say.
Summary: We own a Netgear router so thought, sure, a Netgear wireless adapter will work with it, right? Nope. This model has always been flakey, with connections dropping out for more demanding tasks beyond "click a link" browsing. We finally gave up on it after trying to get a wireless scanner to work. The model's old anyway, so no reason to buy it.
Summary: Read the title. Even with the latest versus of Netgear's drivers or the Windows 7 plug and play drivers, this adapter causes consistent bluescreens whenever the network is under load. I suspect the hardware is defective. There are dozens of other wireless adapters out there - buy one of them.
