Summary: cd which came with device did not work so I had to go to their website and download.Device still did not work and my computer quit after going to that site.DB Roth sent out a pick up and are going to refund my money (they didnt have to),so they are fine but end result was purchase of new computer.
Summary: Not much to say. Could not get it work with a Macintosh. Went thru install / configuration procedures again and again. Unit could not connect. I give up. Also, the PDF instructions were very low resolution, difficult to read, blurry. What a pain.
Summary: I just couldn't get this little guy to work with my Mac based wifi system. I kept getting caught up in a set-up loop and never got it to connect to the router, although it did seem to know it was there. I returned it and was cheerfully refunded what I paid for it. I'm happy with the seller, just disappointed that the product wouldn't work for me.
Summary: I was very happy with the wireless adapter upon receipt. It took me a time to initially set-up but if you're tech. savy, it's not difficult. I believe it would be a challenge for anyone who isn't. However, I tend to dive into things first, and only reference documentation if I experience a problem. You can't beat the price, and it functions well. However, the driver is not supported on Vista or Win 7 (and it's stated on Amazon).
Summary: Just like the title: Outstanding Value and Dependability! We bought this USB internet device after being disappointed with the setup and operation of a competitor. Not only was this easy to install, but it delivers dependable connections day in and day out. The software interface could stand to be more robust in the way of having more security functionalities. There are no dropped connections and a wireless distance of 30 feet provides about a 50-60% level.
Summary: The installation manual is in Chinglish. The words are English but the meaning is nonsensical. The software won't load on my MacBook (OS X 10.5.8). The Planex web site is useless. Returned for refund after wasting hours trying to install.
Summary: If you want to use this USB adapter for Snow Leopard you need to track down some different drivers. At least, my experience was that the drivers from the manufacturer (even most recent ones) did not work. Instead, I used drivers from hField Technologies who have a product with the same chipset. You need to install their software and use their connection manager application, but once you do everything seems to work great. Search for hField technologies wi-fire.
Summary: I wasn't getting good reception on my Macbook's AirPort, so I looked for something to improve the wireless connectivity. It was between this or the ASUS, and I choose this because they seemed comparable, and this was a bit cheaper. Be sure to install the software first before plugging in the USB, because I did it the other way around, and I had to redo it. After it was set up, I'm getting great reception!
Summary: I own an EeePC 1000HE Asus computer, it contains a Wifi card that does not work if you are running Leopard MAC OS on this computer; so the choices are: changing the wifi card or buying this amazing product that has MAC drivers. So with this USB you pay less than buying a compatible wifi card for this computer.
