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: You had to download the correct drivers and software. It took me forever to figure out the model number and which software to get. Other than that, the wireless was marginally better than my laptops old wireless card.
Summary: The adapter works well, providing good speed and range when connected. The problem is to use the adapter you must use the manufactures device and connection software. In other words the device drivers are not provided separately. This software acts as the connection manager and does so in a manner that is clumsy, redundant and should not be required to operate the adapter.
Summary: Although, Netgear does make some good products this is one product that should never been shipped out of their warehouse. When it does connect there is a excellent signal, but I have found that when I am running wireless N or any other network signal. The device drops signal for no reason every 10 minutes and reconnects. When playing a game online it will lose connection after 15 minutes and then hang until computer restart.
