Summary: I got one of these for my laptop back in October of 2013, and it seemed to work great for a while. Easy to install - the software was pretty hard to deal with, and now it's not working at all - breaks connection repeatedly - even when I have the laptop 3'' from my hi-speed modem. Thankfully, I was able to find the driver I was missing for the built in wireless assistant, and that old laptop is smokin'! Wouldn't recommend this device - cheap, but doesn't last long!
Summary: Bought this for an older laptop that can't run a USB wireless. Installed the software, installed the card, connected to the internet. What more could you ask for? Speed and range is normal for what the card is.
