I bought this adapter as an easy way to get my wife's desktop on our wireless network without having to go through the trouble of installing an internal wireless card. The adapter is very easy to configure, and I credit Linksys for including a very straight forward driver. The main issue I have with the adapter is its reception of my home linksys router. When using this adapter, my home network signal strength shows up as a low signal in certain spots in my house. Unfortunately, one of these areas is where my wife's desktop is located, but if I use other wireless adapters (in either of my laptops) at the same location, I get close to full signal strength. My house is not that large (2 story and about 3000 sqft total). The router and desktop are on opposite sides of the house, which will have an impact on reception. Distance between adapter and router is no more than 100 ft., but there are a series of walls between both points, which is something I need to mention to remain objective in this review. However, these conditions do not seem to effect the other adapters I am using in my laptops (one adapter is a linksys card in one laptop and the other is an internal wireless receiver in my IBM thinkpad ). Given the different results from the various wireless receivers that I used under similar conditions and locales, I am led to believe that this adapter does not have the best reception relative to other options out there, and if you are looking to use this adapter in similar conditions as described above, you need to consider this adapter's low level of performance.

So far, so good!

Had no problems following the directions (i.e. run cd and follow prompts). Configuring was almost unbelievably easy and it seems to be performing seamlessly with the Linksys Compact Wireless-G Router we have. We live in a small one-story apartment so our concern was not so much about connectivity over larger distances but more on how well it would be able to handle the challenge of online gaming. So far, so good! No complaints and lots of gratitude for the pain-free installation. Read More
