Summary: This device just doesn't work. First off, it only comes with a CD that includes the driver set. The CD does not come with the utility software. Going to the device website, I found the utility software + driver.
Summary: Saw this on sale, so I thought I would finally get around to posting my review.
Pros: I really like this little device. It works well on Linux, OSX, and Windows. I haven't had any problems with range, though I am usually not very far from my AP. USB is helpful for my devices without PCI slots. This is much better than a certain TrendNet PCI card I got that was total junk.
Cons: Only thing I can think of is the single antenna, but that hasn't given me any issues. Just a thought really.

Pros: Cost, good price. good deal , great antenna, Linux friendly, good reception...at first.
Cons: All was great until about two weeks into ownership, i started notice my speed dropping radically , tested other networks to make sure it wasn't just mine. decrease in speed and connection seen across all wireless networks. Then i noticed this Wifi dongle RNX-N180UBE was getting VERY HOT. VERY POO...
Summary: Bought this to replace another USB wifi adapter that kept flaking out on me randomly after 2 years. Plugged in, had it installed and running in about 5 minutes. Better speed and range overall, my old adapter was B/G/N capable but kept fluctuating between 36Mbps and 103Mbps - this one is solid at...
Pros: Small USB adapter Easy installation Simple setup start to finish Great speeds Inexpensive
