Despite getting this in 2010, after Windows 7 and Windows Vista were out, the latest support you can get for the device is for Windows XP which reaches end of life in 2014. It's pretty woeful really that for a modern N+ device Belkin offers no support other than for an operating system from 2001. Speaks volumes about the company.

I noticed my computer was running slowly and after some extensive searching found that the driver for this appliance was generating a log file which it was adding to all the time it was in use. Eventually this undocumented file reached over 4Gb in size so you can imagine the needless disk activity and memory usage when this file _WLANBelkinServiceRun_.txt was being added to several times a second. Belkin offered no support because it was on Windows 7. Then after rewiring the house and moving the device to a pre-N laptop to give the laptop N+ speed (on Windows XP) they responded quickly with a flat
"
Unfortunately this is not a known issue and we do not have any information on how to stop the files from loading.

This product is obsolete with no stock available therefore we will not be able to offer a replacement."

I would suggest if you want proper support, buy elsewhere.

I've been using this device for ages and have been very pleased with it - it delivered excellent, stable connection speeds and was very reliable.

But...

I recently decided to install an SSD to replace my old hard disk and had to trim the size of my windows installation, This was when I discovered the existence of the _WLANBelkinServiceRun_.txt file on my drive. It was over 20GB! And it was being added to several times a second.

If you've got a smaller hard drive or you want to make sure that your SSD isn't getting trashed by unnecessary, constant writing of data to a file that appears to serve no useful function (you can delete it - if you disconnect the dongle - and the device will work fine, but it simply starts rewriting to a new version of the file) then you probably want to avoid this device.

As there's no obvious fix and no response from Belkin about the problem, I've dumped mine and bought a TP-Link adapter (TL-WDN3200 N600) that is working just as well, without the glitches, and at the time of writing costs less on Amazon.

I didn't buy this product; I was kindly sent it as a replacement to another product which could not be replaced by Belkin Customer Service. I wanted a fast USB N or N+ Wireless adapter to use between two computers which would no longer be using a wired connection to a new and rather excellent Netgear WDR3700 Router. The design of the product is very good indeed. The actual adapter which has a removable protective cap for transportation can slot into a desk stand with about 1m of USB cable. Without checking the specs I was surprised to find (once I got it working) that it supported 5Ghz as well as 2.4Ghz bandwidth alongwith N, N+ and Double N+ connections,luckily my router supports these advanced features. I would say its not worth buying this adapter if you do not have the router functionality to support its speed. Web surfing, downloads and HD media streaming using this adapter is very very fast indeed so if you want to upgrade your WiFi adapter on a desktop or notebook and have a high-end router to support it, this Belkin adapter is probably as good as it gets, having said all that though, I had some major issues getting this product to work with Windows 7 64bit. The product packaging says it supports Windows 7, Belkin do not have dedicated Windows 7 drivers and instead are still using ageing Vista 32/64 bit drivers which do work but for some time my desktop recognised the adapter but could not initiate it. I orginally wrote this product off as good but with bad driver support but I have since updated this review having found the cause - read below...

Updated January 2011

At first I used workaround by enabling a USB "EHCI Handoff" in my BIOS, this is an advanced feature that most computers BIOSes would not have.

Have read the previous review and had an entirely different experience of this adaptor. The driver software installed first time and off it went. No slowing down, good speeds and its even a little smaller and sexier than my old Belkin adaptor. The only thing which lets it down (like its Double N+ router buddy) is that it cant receive both signals at once... Now that would be worth the money! A little overpriced maybe but does exactly what it says on the box.

I decided to move through to a Dual Band adaptor and trusting my previous Belkin, bought one of these.

It has a habit of hanging whenever there is any other electrical activity in the next door room. This necessitates yet another reset. Most frustrating.
The rest is good. It does what it says on the box and generally works well.

This was a good device until windows 8 came out then even plugging it in caused blue screens, if you have windows 7 or vista this will work fine but win8 users should avoid this.
