I will now have to replace this unit with something newer. As of the Windows 10 Creators Update this unit has become very spotty and will cause an immediate BSOD when attempting to access the MS store. Up until this very latest Windows update it was still usable, quick, and fairly stable while making use of its existing Win7 drivers which now go back to 2011. Having this adapter for about a year now it has become clear to me that Win10 drivers are not coming despite the many complaints on Linksys' forums. If you are running Windows 10, before you buy any of these adapters, make they have Windows 10 drivers available online. Otherwise you will be in for a prolonged headache down the road.
Always disconnects and needing to put it back in, generally weak connection it's ok for price.
This product stopped working for me after like 4 months. Their Customer Service is awful. In the end they wanted to send me a replacement. They charged me more than triple what I originally paid, as a hold. I cancelled that and moved on. Head my warning and go with a different brand.
This is not compatible with Windows 10 anniversary upgrade. I have had it only a very few months and now will have to replace it with something else.
I was also beginning to experience the problem mentioned below of frequently losing signal with the only solution being to remove it and replace at frequent intervals.
I had a wifi signal problem on my laptop for a long time, and I do not know why I have not bought this item yet !
I was very economical, and works so great!
I do have window 10, but seems like works very well on my laptop.
I am very happy with this purchase.
There are no drivers for this product that work with windows 10. There never will be. See all those other 5 star reviews? They're old and outdated. HEED MY WARNING.
This is a dead product, and a waste of money. I'm getting a refund. I don't care if you're running a windows OS older than windows 10, you want a product that will work years down the line. This isn't it.
It doesn't matter how many times I u installed the drivers, uninstalled the software, ran the software wizard in compatibility mode, IT WILL NOT WORK.
Shame on Best Buy for selling a product that doesn't work with ANY of the computers they sell.
After a year of increasingly frequent disconnects this product now fails every 15-30 minutes. A search on Google will show that this is a pervasive problem that is solved most often by buying a non-Linksys adapter. Strongly recommend against this product.
Works very well on Windows 10. If you are on Windows 8 or higher, do not install the disc, and go to the Linsys website, and download the driver. I downloaded the Windows 7 driver and it works great for Windows 10. Product is also cheap and effective.
Just an absolutely GORGEOUS little piece - like omg! Ridiculously easy to install, quick, simple, physically small, cheap, works great, and works like an ersatz laptop - no program or anything like that to connect wirelessly, just the normal windows wireless program. (I had this other one that had a separate wireless interface and had to be maneuvered through that, not the normal wireless thing. It was weird and I didn't like it.)
This device does not work natively using Windows 10, nor will Linksys produce Windows 10 drivers for it. Apparently, you can get it to work by uninstalling it through the Device Manager and then reinstalling the Windows 7 driver but it's ridiculous that you can buy it off the shelf when they don't have valid drivers beyond Windows 8.1. Not recommended.
Very easy to install. Reliable. Least expensive. No problems at all.
I've had it "hang" a couple times when I was heavily using it, but I just unplugged it and plugged it back in.
Installation was a breeze with the included CD. The unit is installed on an older CPU which is quite a bit of distance from the modem/router but doesn't seem to be a problem. The speeds that I experience with the Linksys adapter are not as good as a built in wireless adapter but they aren't bad by any means. Performing a speed test using speedtest.net revealed the same speeds as my other devices.
I have had no problems with this unit what-so-ever since the original installation.
Due to a chipset manufacturer that refuses to either release a linux driver or the driver specs you must use ndiswrapper and the very buggy XP driver. Expect regular dropouts and an occasional solid hang that is immune to even a kill -9.
When it's working it's really good, but when it feels like cutting out every two minutes....
Installed in one minute and works quite well with my Xplornet IP with Linksys wireless router. Excellent value.
Couldnt have been easier, took 5 minutes from start to end, can't beat the price either.
Disconnects regularly and has weak connection in general. It also only has windows 7 drivers....discontinued product.
Easy to set up and it works!
works great! no issues.
Works Great Thanks
Great product, be sure to plug it in one of the back cords of the PC to get better connection!
This product allows my system to be completely wireless, I didn't realize it was so simple to do.
Can't believe how simple it was. Play the CD a couple of click and your done. Why would you buy Cat5 when this is cheaper
Very good product. I bought in 2011. Still going with no break up signal or poor connection. It was expensive at the time I bought now its cheap. I'll get one more this simmer to connect another computer to wireless network.
this is actually very good
