Stay away, this adapter has issues

on 4/17/2011

I was really hoping this adapter would be great. The install is a breeze. Then the trouble starts. It has a very weak antenna and shows low signal strength when every other device shows strong. It must be reset by pulling it out of the USB port and reinserting it to get it to respond whenever the laptop goes into sleep mode. Then it connects to a non secure network and I must manually reset it connect to my network. Stay away!!!
