I bought this USB adapter for its 5Ghz selectable dual band wireless N capability. Ahh, it didn't work. SAVE YOUR MONEY. I went back to much less expensive NetGear N band USB adapters. I've worked in IT my entire professional career and built many networks (IP, SAN, X.35, etc). If I can't get this unit to work like I have on many others like it - GOOD LUCK TO THE CONSUMER. I'm requesting my money back!

Easy to install, works well. Used to replace internal card that stopped working in an HP laptop. Worth the money, probably could find a cheaper one but I figured Cisco/Linksys is a standard. Shipped quick, although the manufacturer should use a smaller box. Read More
