Good product but do not install the software,
This review is from: Belkin 802.11g Wireless G USB Network Adapter for Win 2000/ME/XP/Vista (Electronics)
I use this to connect a laptop to my wireless router using the cable extension so I can place the transmitter higher up or wherever is needed to get a better signal. I get far better range than I did with my old 802.11b PCMCIA card.
1. DO NOT INSTALL THE BELKIN SOFTWARE!!! Just plug it in and use windows wireless configuration.
2. If you use the extension cable make sure you KEEP ANY POWER LEADS AWAY from it. I diagnosed this as the cause of my connection continually dropping- I moved the USB lead so it balanced on a box behind the laptop and the connection problem was instantly fixed.
