Customer Reviews of Belkin N Wireless USB Adapter
Great with right drivers9/9/2013
AFTER the hours of fighting Vista ... and finally finding the right drivers ... it works fine. Range is pretty good and the physical install was a piece of cake. I plugged into the USB port and VISTA asked for the disk. This product does not come with a disk. I had my computer setup where I could still run cable, so I went to the Belkin website and downloaded the driver ... didn't work. Repeated, didn't work ... and again. FINALLY, I searched the site differently and noticed that there are MANY versions of this product and they have different drivers. Once I noticed my product was "v3.xxx" and got the "v3.xxx" driver, the install was quick and easy.
the adapter is small and works great, I am in the back of the house aprox 50 ft away from main router and it works through walls with no problem haven't lost connection once
Excellent product for the money9/14/2012

Easy To Use7/25/2012
Easy to install and works with any "N" routers without any problems. A great little gadget.
Went from 3-4 Mbs to 20-25 Mbs with this wireless USB device.

does not work on my Win7 machine8/18/2011
called tech support and got someone who barely speaks English. Eventually had to hang up. Went to Web site no help there either.
Excellent product, connect manually7/26/2011
I installed this on my Windows7 machine without using the provided software like others here have suggested and it's been working fabulously in areas of my house where the 802.11g wasn't quite reaching. (Of course, a 802.11n router is needed to use this adapter). It's performed better than I expected with some online games, getting the best transfer rates and latency that my DSL is capable of. Highly recommended, just disable the provided management software, the Windows wireless network management software works great.
Recommend connecting manually7/24/2011
Wanted to be able to use WPA level security on an XP machine. (Could only connect by having my router broadcast a second WEP signal). First time, tried pushbutton connection. Didn't work. Second time, entered the passcode manually. Worked fine.
What a great price!6/23/2011
I've owned this adapter for over 2 yrs (got mine @ A**z*n for MUCH more $). I bought it to add wireless to an older XP machine that didn't come w/wireless card. It's worked flawlessly for all this time: easy to install, fast connection, exclnt "reach" all over the house---even thru brick walls and surrounded by electronics (40"flatscreen,dvd recorder,vcr,satellite receiver, pc, wireless printer, pc surround sound spkrs, home theater surr.sound spkrs/recvr, 2 cordless phones). You can't beat the performance of this one for 4 times the price.
Belkin Wireless N USB Adaptor9/19/2010
Item worked as advertised without any issues. Need to install drivers from the enclosed CD before hooking up to an XP PC. Haven't tried it on a Win 7 machine yet. Overall it has good range, even from 1-1/2 floors away. A cheaper alternative to add wireless to a desktop than buying a card and spending the time opening up the machine! Would buy again...
