Ease of Use

For my old Pentium PC, I had tried a Netgear USB and then a Linksys PCI card wireless adapter. The Netgear used to overheat and the Linksys PCI card did not get a strong signal. The RangePlus gave me much better reception than the PCI card and the USB cable allowed me to position it for best reception. A bonus was the Wireless-N capability as I plan to change my Linksys WRT54G router this year.

Thought this adapter would work with Vista.......NOT. Works great with XP. Had to go with Belkin for a Vista compatible adapter and still had to download driver update.
