    I bought this at Walmart to hook my desktop computer up to my wireless router. I ran the CD first like it says to, plugged in the adapter, and within minutes I was hooked up to the internet. I use this to connect to my Cisco Linksys dual-band wireless router. It's fast enough for streaming Netflix and playing online games. I've had it for about 2 months so far and have not had to reset it or anything like that. I will update if it ever dies. If you're building or buying a desktop, you can get an internal wireless adapter for much cheaper ($10-$15) but if you already have a desktop that needs to be connected and you're not comfortable installing an internal wireless card, this works perfect.

    I'm not a professional IT person but I'm no stranger to technology and know my way around building a computer. First, the CD that came with this adapter would not install the setup wizard, after a while it partially loaded then froze my computer. I finally gave up on the CD and installed the drivers directly from the Cisco website along with their "signed" setup wizard. Driver loaded fine, system recognized the adapter but setup wizard couldn't locate my wireless network... funny that both of my cell phones, and both laptops have no problem seeing it. Uninstall, re-install, uninstall, re-install, etc.... no luck. Finally call tech support. "ROSE" answers (after about 20 mins) and after an exchange of what product I'm calling about proceeds to tell me to uninstall the driver... I asked her if I could at least TELL her what my problem is first. She lets me tell her then proceeds to tell me to uninstall the driver. Ultimately she thinks its my computer or a "COMPATIBILITY" issue with my wireless router. Apparently LINKSYS adapters ONLY work with LINKSYS routers. Rose tells me this is likely the issue. Run, don't walk from this product.

    Ok, I had to set-up my nieces desktop computer, for her home schooling(over the net schooling), and I have dealt with many different brands of network products, and only one, has never failed, and has literally taken some serious abuse, like being bounced around, due to it falling, from it being run into, and etc, and it still out worked the other brands, which is the Linksys/Cisco companys products, and when I decided to help my niece get connected to my Linksys/Cisco brand dual band wireless router(model number WRT310N), and the adapter was hooked to an older "set" HP computer, that has a 2.9GHZ single core processor, with a windows 7 home premium edition OS, and literally, within 2minutes, it had it up and running, and finding other routers, that the laptops were not even able to find, and there were 5 or 6 total routers, that it was showing, and one of which was just over 100yrds away, so, I know I made a good choice, with using the brand equipment, that I have trusted, for years now, since, other brands have failed, where this brand has succeeded, and yes, I am waiting to find that "lemon", all mass produced equipment will have them, its fate, but, to have gone more then 8yrs, and not have one fail me, in the cyber world, thats more then a life time, and yes, I do build computers for not only myself, for others around me, as well, so, I have been around many different brands and seen how well they work, and I can only see, how some people may have gotten those lemons, instead of myself, of those, that I have read about.....

    I have tried 3 of these adapters now and everyone drops down to a wireless g speed after a couple months at the most. I am using it with a linksys E1200 wireless router so no compatibility issues. I can use my ZoneNet adapter at 150 Mbps just fine so it is not the router. I will not buy another one of these again and I am seriously rethinking CISCO quality. Stay far far away from this one!
