Perfect Plug and Play12/20/2010
I bought this to extend my existing ZyXEL network to hook my kids desktop which was earlier running USB WiFi(Which was very unreliable and used to heat up a lot). Hooked this new adapter and boom..got connected to the network right away. Will certainly recommend to anyone looking to have physical Ethernet connectivity, without the hassles of doing complex wiring.
