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.
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.
It holds the connection very well, driver install is simplistic, does the job and good for the price!!!
can't fault it!!!!!
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'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.
