Bought this to add an old Xp PC to my new network, and because I haven't got a clue what Im doing I went for the cheapest one I could find.
I followed the instructions that came with the dongle ie loaded driver disc and then plugged dongle in.
Graph showed connection dropping in/out intermittently. Messed about with the settings without really knowing what I was doing for hours trying to stabalise connection without success.

Performed system restore then ignored instructions and just plugged the thing in without driver disc. Xp recognised it immediately and connection was up and running within 1 minute!

My second Pc is in an upstairs bedroom and the status window always says the connection is "very good". With this being my first attempt at creating a home network I can't comment on transfer speeds etc because I have nothing to compare against, but I can say my broadband connection is as fast upstairs as it is downstairs.

I hope this helps other first timers.

OS = XP2

Instructions say load CD Rom & drivers will load automatically, then plug in USB Wireless Adapter & Windows will recognise it & accept it accordingly. NO! Windows says new hardware found please insert CD Rom for drivers, which it then installs again, only this time trying to use the Windows Wireless Network wizard, which after a reboot shows two icons on your taskbar. Result = conflicts.

Recommendation - Uninstall. Go back to restore point prior to installation. Plug adapter in, windows asks for drivers, put CD in tray and load drivers. Windows reboots & then recognises adapter straight away using Windows Wireless Network system. No probs after that.

Adapter works well, but range is not great. 1 Room & your down to 11bps, so does drop off quite quickly.

Read the previous reviews which said they had no problems when running Linux Ubuntu. Ordered the product and received it within 48 hours. Straight out of the packet, plugged it in and away it went. Running well, certainly up to the speed of the cable with no wires!

Tried this on an old p3 with usb 1.1 and it works perfectly, in fact, tried this on a few computers, laptops (used as a connection to get windows updates to friends knackered computers)

It holds the connection very well, driver install is simplistic, does the job and good for the price!!!

can't fault it!!!!!

after what seemed like an age trying to find an adaptor that would work with an orange livebox i stumbled across this and decided for £14 i couldnt go that much wrong. I'm glad i got it, installed straight away (as another reviewer says plug the adaptor in and then insert disc.) thats it that was it installed. Found and Connected to the live box straight away, (if you have a livebox follow oranges instructions and dont forget to put the livebox in pairing mode by pressing the one button on the side) entered the security codes for the livebox and was away. connected to the room directly above the router and it has never dropped the connection so far, and always hovers around 3-4 bars, which isnt exceptional but its good enough for most people's needs, its a modest 54mbs which is good for the price. the only minor drawback, (which is pretty common, is the size, its quite wide for a usb device and so may obstruct any other usb points. It gets a little hot but not so hot that it'll burn a hole in your desktop.

sure it might not be the top of the range adaptor but it is a great and reliable (so far) adaptor, which im using to write this review right now :D

I can see from other reviews that others are not getting this problem, but I've found that this device really, really struggles to maintain a good connection.
I'm using the thing in a school, and there's probably a fair amount of electrical "noise". The signal from the router is weak - my laptop with an internal card also reports this - but the laptop maintains a good connection pretty much without fail. This doesn't - at all.
It sometimes goes for periods without problems, and then drops / reconnects repeatedly, to the point that it's close to unusable. I've tried moving the computer around, and tweaking some settings, but to no avail. I'm using it with quite an old PC, XP SP3 and USB1.
This may be a one-off, and it's possible that it's a software / existing hardware issue, but if you think you may be using it in an environment where the signal is likely to be low and there's a bit of interference, be aware of my problems.

I bought this product because it mentioned linux in the title and the description. The product comes in a white, unbranded box, not mentioning linux in the hw requirements, without any kind of instruction leaflet and with a small cd apparently hand-burned with windows drivers only on it. The kind of driver/hardware is not in the ndiswrapper support list, and trying to make it work (ndiswrapper -i + modprob ndiswrapper, etc.) causes the USB bus to crash. There is no mention to product support or drivers on the producer website, and searching for "linux" with their website search engine doesn't return anything. I was able to find a native driver from another vendor for apparently similar underlying hardware, had to patch it for being able to compile under ubuntu gutsy gibbon, and be able to load it: sort of works in that it can scan the available networks (with no names) but connection is impossible. When contacting the seller asking for solutions I was only offered a refund. Total rubbish: don't buy this stuff if you care for linux support, and buy this for windows if you want a very cheap product with may work out of the box but gives you absolutely no information if something goes wrong.
