As someone who has always bought Belkin networking hardware there was only ever going to be one manufacturer I was going to use when I needed to upgrade. As I wanted to futureproof myself from the ever increasing broadband speeds, I decided to buy the Belkin Wireless N USB Adapter to go with my new Wireless N router. As I had previously bought 2 of the Belkin Wireless G adaptors in the past, I knew what I would be getting in terms of quality.

--Whats in the box--

On opening the box, there were no real surprises, everything looked identical to the Wireless G version of this product. There was the USB adapter, a stand which would allow you to place the adapter on your desk if you didnt want to have it plugged directly into the back of your PC, the antenna, a quick installation guide and a CD which contained the drivers and a full manual.

--Installation--

On reading the quick installation guide, it was apparent that the software had to be installed before the adapter was plugged in. The reason for this was because, when the hardware was detected, the software would be available to complete a trouble free install. Installing the software was straightforward. There was a limited number of standard questions, such as install location and the wizard was happy to carry on unattended. Fortunately this product comes with drivers for Windows 7. The old G model never had these and you needed to play around a bit to get the software to install in Vista compatability mode.

Once the software was installed, it was time to plug in the USB adapter. This is the same as plugging in any other USB device such as a digital camera.

Arrived well within time. I have a desktop computer which is not wireless enabled. It operates Windows XP. I also recently purchased a laptop which operates with Windows Vista. It is wireless enabled and I use a G+ Router to connect the laptop to the Internet, my desktop and printer. As I intend to move my desktop to another room I decided to invest in a Wireless Adapter for it. Having read various reviews on Amazon, I decided to purchase the Belkin N model. I followed the instructions and had everything up an running within 30mins without any hitches. It has given me no problems since its installation, with the laptop and desktop now both operating wirelessly.

I have recently moved back to BT for internet access and this was a wireless product that was recommended and as the reviews were good, I thought I would try it out.
Set up was very easy indeed, just inserted the supplied disk, down loaded the required software and then started the programme added all the details of the BT hub and I was connected within about 15 minutes.
For me an excellent purchase and so far the connection / download speed has been good also !

My old Belkin G+ wireless adapter decided to die on me last week (it has been used everyday for the last 3-4 years and in the end I think it just got too much and overheated) so I decided to 'upgrade' by purchasing an N speed one. The installation was extremely simple (my PC runs Vista) and you do not need to run the Belkin software utility if you prefer Windows to monitor the connection as I do. I simply plugged into my USB hub, Windows asked for the CD to install the drivers from, the WEP key for my network and there we go. Reconnected once again! In case anyone is wondering, I have BT Broadband and have not experienced any problems in the first few days of using the adapter. It is much, much quicker than my old G+ model and I would recommend it to anyone.

I looked around on different websites and found Amazon to be the cheapest price for this particular model so I'd suggest buying from here over anywhere else where it seems to be priced between £35-£40.

No trouble at all in installing. Plug the device into a USB port, after a short while a mesage pops up showing it has been recognised. It will then show you a list of available wifi APs. The security key is entered via a on-screen keyboard. Shortly afterwards you have a connection. A few moments after that you should be able to see the available network shares (in my case a PC and a stand-alone ethernet-connected hard disk).
You do not need to buy the expensive Samsung product!

It's a pretty good wireless adapter for the price I paid! Couldn't ask for more.

Installation was a breeze. Pretty much run the setup (I used the latest drivers instead of the disc) and in 2 seconds it was done (also, I have an SSD, so might be slower on an HDD).

Fits snug at the back of my desktop, however I would recommend placing it away from other USB ports, just so it leaves enough room to insert other devices since the adapter is a tiny bit wide, but not to wide.

Signal quality is excellent, I have my desktop upstairs and my router is downstairs, and I still have full signal bars, haven't seen them drop. Yet.

Overall I really like this adapter, and I would recommend this to anyone who has their desktop/laptop quite a fair distance away from their router.
