Absolutely No problems

by evac93rd on 1/30/2011

I upgraded to N routers at home, a Cisco-Linksys E3000, and at my office, a Cisco-Linksys E2000, and to take full advantage of the dual band properties of the "n" band in our older computers I needed to install Wireless N adapters. The router installation was easy but the adapter installation was even easier. I don't know if using a different router would be harder but if you use their "Cisco Connect" software, you can generate a key on a flash-drive. Install the software, plug in the adapter when instructed to and then plug in the flash-drive when instructed to...voila. The adapter can be left plugged into a USB port directly or left on its little stand. (If you need more flexibility than "Cisco Connect" offers then you can get into the router via your web browser the usual way but for most people that will be unnecessary.)
