After that frustration I had all but given up when I came upon this tiny USB wi-fi unit. Installing it was a piece of cake despite the rather daunting user manual. Ran the CD installation that comes with it, inserted the product in a spare USB 2.0 port and followed the instructions to register the new hardware that was detected.
The wireless settings basically configured themselves once it had found by router signal. Just entered the password and it was all systems go. Superb product.
It's earned me a few brownie points with the wife I can tell you.
P.S. Thought I should add for those technically challenged like me. This "N Speed" adapter is fully backward compatible with older 'b' and 'g' wireless networks (my router is only a 'g' and it works perfectly)
Tested with wired (ethernet) first, it was about 60Mbps. Through this adapter, it was roughly 15Mbps (strong wireless signal). With the Micro version (not this version) about 10Mbps. So, not bad but not great, either. For this price you can't expect much more. Good signal, though. Was quite impressed by the range!
I ran the cd, plugged in the dongle and put in my wireless code and I was away...
Computers WIFI g/b= 7 - 12 mbps
wired conection = 36 mbps
THIS MINI DONGLE.= 32 mbps
Need I say more, great price and great speed!
Windows Vista (Vista is horrible by the way) went and automatically installed the drivers.... incorrectly. Consequently, any attempts to connect to any WiFi connection resulted in the almost immediate failure, with Windows failing to 'repair' or 'diagnose' the problem.
Re-installing the drivers using the installer on the provided CD fixed this problem, additionally now displaying the possibility to use the 'WPS button' when attempting to connect to my network, which it didn't with the automatic Vista driver install.
On Ubuntu Linux 10.04, the problems were worse, and the solutions on Google weren't very helpful.
In the end, I downloaded the latest version of rtl8192sfw.bin I could find from a reputable source and placed it in a new folder named /lib/firmware/RTL8192SU (root was needed for this.)
(Note: rtl8192sfw.bin is actually already in one of the folders in /lib/firmware/, but is both out of date, and not in the correct folder.
This caused the USB to be picked up, and be able to connect to the network, but with 96% of packets being dropped (according to ifconfig). Looking in the system logs, I noticed it kept on disconnecting and reconnecting the vmnet-bridge.
After many failed attempts, to fix this, I downloaded the official kernel driver from [...], extracted the driver source, then ran
and then edited /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (again, root is needed for this), and added
With these steps done, and after reboot, it now works.Read more ›

If you are running Windows 7 forget it. It didn't work for me anyway. Sorry just my experience, you may have better luck.Published on 10 Oct. 2012 by Salmonpole
Small but effective, better than my previous wi-fi dongle.
Don't let its small size put you off, it is very effective at what it does!
