Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DIGIFLEX Wireless Internet USB Adaptor WiFi Dongle 150Mbps For Windows 7 / XP / Vista (Personal Computers)
I bought this based on all the good reviews - it obviously works really well for many people.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit. When I first got it going it was okay, although my signal was listed as poor. As I'd only just moved house, and also hadn't used wireless before, I didn't know any different. In the last few weeks, however, the signal has just been cutting out completely as it is so poor. I ended up rebooting, turning my modem on and off, messing with my firewall and cursing a fair bit, before it struck me that it could be the dongle that was causing the bad reception. So I found a long network cable and used this to check. My internet was fantastic without the dongle. I have returned it, and Amazon were fantastic as ever.

I'm editing this with some extra information. I bought a "Laptone Wireless N Internet USB Adaptor WiFi Dongle For Windows 7/ XP/Vista" instead, and the reception from this is excellent. This might be helpful to anyone else who has had the same problem.

Did you check which channel your router was on, sometimes a neighbor who is broadcasting on the same channel can cause your signal to drop.
