Summary: This plug in would absolutely not attach to any router myself or my friends owned that operated in the "N only" 5ghz frequency. It gets three stars for the fact it actually functions on a wifi network, it's low cost, and it's low profile....but that's it. I think I'm done with TRENDnet products at this point.
Summary: Picked it because my wife's laptop's wireless died. This worked, until she broke it by leaving it on when she packed it, but often was a pain to get connected. It often wouldn't connect to WIFI that were saved as profiles. Not sure if it was a hardware or software problem.
Summary: This thing might work great. I'll never know, because it is not, as the listing explicitly states, Mac compatible. The nice people at Trendnet tell me that the following models are: TEW-648UB TEW-649UB I'll try one of those instead!
Summary: The blue one does not support Windows 7. They sent me a black one which supports 2000/XP, Vista, as well as Windows 7. But the driver for Windows 7 is not included in the CD and has to be downloaded from the trendnet website. Here are the steps for setup: 1. Connect the ethernet cable to the computer to get internet connection 2. Download and install winzip software (free trial) from the winzip website 3. Download Windows 7 setup guide from trendnet website 4.
