Summary: This product gives you internet; however, it is greatly outdated for most internet routers and will give you poor performance at best. I replaced it with something more powerful as soon as I could.
Summary: This wireless network adapter provides perfectly functional connection from a homebrew desktop computer to my IEEE 802.11-n wireless network, and prevents me from having to string Ethernet cables from my router to the computer, a major "plus". Windows 7 required no StarTech software drivers; drivers available from Microsoft were sufficient.
Excerpt: This was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my husband. I ordered it online on DECEMBER 4th. While I received an email shortly after that it had shipped, I never received confirmation of delivery to the store. When the store finally sorted it out, they determined that Staples.com had never actually sent the product out and they had to order a new one.
